Boots Skincare Haul: Vichy & Boots Botanics

Monday, July 23, 2012
I have been wanting to try a micellar make up remover for a while now but I didn't want to buy the Bioderma micellar solution as everyone has it and it is not that cheap in as I would have to order it from France. So I bought the 'Vichy 3 in 1 Calming Cleansing Micellar Solution'. I also noticed that on the boots website that the 'Boots Botanics' skincare brand have gone through a re-branding process and all of the product are new or have new packaging. The Boots Botanics new range where on offer (1/3 off I think) so I picked up the 'Botanics Skin Relief Ultra Calm Serum' and the 'Botanics Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm'. 
Firstly, the Vichy Micellar Water. I have been using this product almost everyday since I received it in the post (about a week or so now). I usually wear foundation, concealer, eyeshadow, brow products and a lipstick or lip stain and this micellar water removes all of my make up (even the waterproof cosmetics) so quickly and easily. I have tried quite a few make up removers and they usually leave my skin feeling greasy and not very clean at all. But this product removes all of my makeup so easily and it does not make my skin feel greasy/oily/heavy at all - it makes my skin look and feel really clean and fresh! Highly recommended
As well as the Vichy Micellar Water, this product is another great find for me. I have only tried the 'Caudalie Vinosource SOS Serum' and the 'Lush Full Of Grace Serum' before. I love the Caudalie SOS Serum but it is really expensive and I didn't like the Lush Serum. I adore this serum! Firstly, I love the packaging. Secondly, the product does have a scent to it (it smells similar to the Caudalie SOS Serum) but it does not irritate my skin at all. This serum glides onto my skin so smoothly, it makes my skin very smooth/soft and it calms, soothes and hydrates my skin. I have been using this product twice a day since I received it and I am going to have to buy another while it is on offer. Highly recommended
Lastly, the 'Botanics Hot Cloth Cleansing Balm'. This is the first cleansing balm I have tried and I really like it. I have only used this product two/three times and it is a little bit strange to use at first. To use you just: get some of the balm on your hands (it has a oily feeling on the skin) and smooth it over the skin. Then you wet the muslin cloth (warm water) that comes with the balm and press it onto the skin. Then use circular motions to remove the balm. The balm is easy to use and it makes my skin feel smooth, soft and hydrated but not greasy. This product does not irritate my skin. Recommended
