products on table


I asked on Twitter if anyone would be interested in a mega long post all about the Boots Botanics range, and thankfully lots of you said yes! I would just like to state that whilst all of these products are gifted over a number of months, that does not affect my opinion and I haven’t been told what to say, I’m also not being paid for this blog post.

First up is the Rosewater Toning Spritz, and I have to say I’m not too keen on this one. Something about it doesn’t sit well with my sensitive skin, but I will say it is refreshing. I’d rather just use one of my other toners or pass the step completely.

The Eye Roll-on is one of the newest out of the bunch, but after a few tries I’m really rating it. It feels very cooling and refreshing on the lil peepers, and is super hydrating which is always a benefit for eye products and preventing some lines that I’m bound to get as the years truck on.

I tried the Face Polish for the first time last night. It was my first time using anything like this, and I was so surprised at how harsh the product was. I was super worried it would affect my sensitive skin, but thankfully it didn’t at all, although it did feel a bit too abrasive for me unfortunately.

Now onto a firm favourite from the collection, the Day Cream. I’ve harped on about this in many blog posts already, so I’ll keep it snappy. My skin laps the stuff up (might be due to the rosehip in it), and it never breaks me out, just leaves my face feeling nice and hydrated. Definitely going to be repurchasing this one, although it’s going to take me a while to use up as the tub is massive!

I really enjoy the Face Scrub as it’s very gentle, I would say it’s much more of a wash with scrub particles in it. It exfoliates just enough that your skin feels fresher, but not too much that it’s not left feeling super dry and tight (which is a feeling I really hate). It always feels lovely to use so I would definitely recommend picking it up if you’re in the market for something slightly exfoliating.

The Radiance Balm hasn’t had much love in my collection as usually it’s a product I forget about, but that definitely needs to change. It’s a very liquid base that leaves your skin feeling plump and glow giving, and not at all greasy. A little sure goes a long way here, which is great as that means it’s going to last ages. I love wearing this on it’s own or under foundation that isn’t as dewy as I usually like.

Have you tried anything in this range?

  • I loved this post! The Botanicals do such lovely packaging. I’ve only tried a couple of products from the range and was left feeling a little disappointed. Although like you I do quite like the scrub. I’ve recently bought the day cream, so I can’t wait to see if that has the same results for me as it has you xx

    • Oh I hope it works for you, I really love it! The rosehip in it works so well for me!

  • The day cream sounds lovely! I’ll have to give it a go when my current runs out.

    Thanks for sharing Natalie! I tried a few of the Botanics products whilst on holiday and whilst they were ok and did the job, I will still disappointed with some of them. The micellar water didn’t take my makeup off too well, as well as leaving my skin quite dry. I also tried the toner and the rose cream cleanser which were better, but I probably wouldn’t buy them again. As for the radiance balm, I occasionally use it as a primer under foundation, but I’m not really sure of its purpose. x


    • Oh I haven’t tried the micellar water or the cleanser, shame you didn’t get on too well with them! I find only introducing one new skincare product at a time in my routine helps xxx

    The only things I’ve tried from this range are the brightening toner and the face wash – I do quite like them but I’d probably try something different next time I need to buy just because I’m super fickle with skincare!

    This brand sounds great! I would love to try out the gentle face scrub, I have sensitive skin and it sounds amazing! http://mariannyc.com/2017/11/03/nuzest-new-protein-flavors/#comments

  • That Daycream sounds great! I’m allergic to roses though so sadly will have to give it a miss 🙁

    • Oh really, can’t you use rosehip oil either? xx

    It looks like such a lovely range (that packaging is worth a swoon on its own) so thank you so much for reviewing it, Natalie. I think the Day Cream is definitely a winner – it sounds incredible. I am actually out of mine and looking to make a little cheeky purchase so I will take a look at this one 😉 Loved this review, girlie!

    • Thank you so much Nadia, for reading! The day cream is definitely the stand out product for me xxx
