Botanics Skincare Review

Botanics Skincare Review

Skincare is something that although I don’t speak about as much on my blog compared to makeup, it is the main priority for me when it comes down looking after your skin which I feel is so important. Before makeup, skincare always comes first. Every night when it’s that time to finally take your makeup off after a long day, I always, always make sure I clean my face before going to bed and do my skincare routine. This is the same for mornings, the first step when I get ready is doing my morning skincare routine before I think about applying makeup. This may seem tiresome and time consuming for those mornings when you are in a rush to get ready or on a night when you just want to get to bed and quickly take your makeup off but I can’t stress enough how important looking after your skin is guys & gals. I’m no expert but sticking to a skincare routine and looking after your skin will help you keep beautiful skin for the future & comes with lots more worthwhile benefits.

Although I could ramble on all day about makeup, you’ve got to think about the most important thing, removing it. Let’s face it people, it might seem easier and more convenient but scrubbing at your skin with baby wipes isn’t the best option. Skincare can also seem expensive but it doesn’t have to be as having a routine that works best for you using products from the drugstore is fine too. So when Botanics got in touch and asked me to be a brand ambassador for them to help them create the relaunch of their brand in the Uk, I was firstly blooming excited (pardon the pun) and secondly so honoured that they were going to send some of their beautiful skincare products across to me. Who remembers their products in the old packaging from when they were younger?? Since then, they have had a bit of a re vamp with all new products & packaging which can I just say is so so gorgeous!! As Botanics offer affordable products, I thought this would be a great opportunity to show this. Each of their products also contain plant extracts and are completely paraben free which is so amazing. 

Their products are so unique and organic so I was super excited to try everything and see what’s new! Botanics have many different skincare ranges to suit everyone so I’ll leave a link to a useful page below to find the skincare range for you & more about the ranges! I thought I would share with you my opinions on the products I have tried so far…

Botanics Organic Hydrating Day Cream (SPF15 50ml) -£9.99

Even if you don’t have dry skin, moisturising your skin and keeping it hydrated is key. This one by Botanics nourishes and hydrates your skin all day leaving it feeling soft and radiant. The non-greasy, fast absorbing formula is nice and lightweight and sinks into the skin ready to apply makeup. The moisturiser also contains SPF 15 to protect your skin.

How to use: Apply every morning after cleansing.

Botanics All Bright Purifying Face Scrub (75ml) -£5.49

As I have dry skin, I have found this face scrub a life saver when it comes to exfoliating. Sometimes exfoliators can be quite harsh on your delicate skin which I have found in the past but this one is so gentle on the skin. I also have sensitive skin so I was a bit apprehensive about trying a new skincare range but all of these products mentioned haven’t irritated my skin at all which was a relief! The face scrub buffs away dead skin easily leaving it feeling clean, smooth and radiant due to the natural hibiscus extra skin brightening properties.

How to use: Use 2-3 times a week by gently massaging into skin after cleansing.

Botanics Organic Rosewater Toning Spritz -£7.99

When I opened the package, this product caught my eye the most as I’d never used a face toner before using this but now having tried it, I absolutely love it! One spritz of this rosewater toner purifies your skin leaving it feeling revitalised after cleansing ready for moisturiser. It also removes any traces of makeup that might be there from the night before which is fab. I also love how the spray bottle means the product comes out in a fine mist which is easy to apply and refreshing. After using this my skin feels so calm and nourished without feeling sticky. Whenever my skin needs a dose of nourishment, this product is so handy to spritz over my skin for a hydrating boost!

How to use: With eyes closed, spritz over face and neck after cleansing.

Botanics All Bright Radiance Balm (50 ml) -£7.99

Finally, the radiance brightening balm infused with hibiscus helps to create an even skin tone and a beautiful glow, either on it’s own or underneath make-up which I’ve been doing recently as it also acts as a primer. After using this my skin feels so smooth and generally looks a whole lot healthier and revitalised. Especially under the eyes, you can really see the natural glow it gives your skin. I absolutely LOVE it!

How to use: Smooth over cleansed skin to create a long lasting radiant base.

Overall, I would highly recommend Botanics skincare & their skincare ranges. Their products are so affordable, easily accessible from your local Boots and I have been so impressed with the quality of the products also. If you want to try Botanics skincare, you can use the discount code ‘BOTANICS2’ to get two pounds off any product. There is also a buy one get second half price offer on all Botanics products for a further discount at the moment so don’t miss the offer! Go get them now!

Thank you so much for reading as always and I hope you found this review in some way helpful!

    All of these products look and sound lovely!! I also totally agree skincare should always be included in your daily routine, I used to be terrible at taking care of my skin and it was showing but after taking a bit more time to care for my skin I’ve seen a huge difference. I’ll definitely be giving these products a try one day xx

When I first started to wear makeup I didn’t really know the importance of looking after your skin but as I’ve got older I’ve learnt how important it is and how just having a simple routine can make all the difference. Aww I’m so pleased, thanks for reading as always Sophie xx 🙂

    Yes I remember the old packaging but Love it when a brand revamps and relaunches. Always makes me sit up and take notice. I too have dry skin so these would be fab for me. The Rose toner particularly sounds lovely. The new packaging is gorgeous!
