Botanics Review

I realised I have not done a product review for a longtime and please note this is Not a sponsored review, I bought these myself and I simply want to share what beauty products I am using at the moment. Both John and I lean towards more natural based products and we thought we would give some of the Boots Botanics line a go as they are all plant based products and certified by Kew Gardens and feel very light on the skin.

Conditioning Clay Mask - First of all we wanted to find an effective face mask that was quick, easy and simply to apply and something we could fit into our busy lives and a product that doesn't dry our skin out (John has very sensitive skin). We both agreed that only after 15 minutes this mask left our skin feeling so soft and really helped draw out impurities. The main ingredient is natural oceanic clay which exhibits a negative electrical charge to attract deep rooted impurities and it also contains burdock which has both anti-oxidant and anti-microbial properties. Really love this product and would highly recommend it.

Sensitive Oil Free moisturiser - in the beginning I was very weary of this product, mainly because of it's appearance - I had only really used moisturisers that looked creamy and this was thin clear gel in appearance, almost a little watery. But after a few weeks I really felt it helped calm my skin down and keep it clear and didn't block the pores at all and it felt very light. I am very glad I stuck with it as I have since tried other moisturisers and have gone back to this product.

Organic Rose Water Toner - this has the most beautiful rose smell to it and makes your skin feel fresh and gives you the feeling like you have just walked through and English garden in spring. The great thing with the botanics range is they don't feel harsh on your skin whatsoever although it takes time for your skin to feel the benefits - so no quick fixes but very beneficial if you stick with it. There may be better or stronger toners on the market but this has a wonderful natural smell has a real feel-good factor.

All these products can be bought from either boots online or in store. Thanks for reading Side Street Style
