Boots Haul #4 – Skincare

I know i’ve literally just posted a haul but I wanted to get this one up so I could start using the products and show you guys i’d purchased them before I review them. My skin has really been acting up recently, not breaking out but it’s just all of sudden really dry and nothing I do seems to be helping it so I got dressed and dragged myself down to Boots to get some products that could help my skin out.

Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation – Boots (£5.99), Botanics All Bright Cleansing Foam Wash – Boots (£3.99), Botanics Ultra Calm Skin Calming Day Cream – Boots (£6.99), Nivea Gentle Cleansing Facial Wipes Dry Skin – Boots (£2.99)

The first thing I picked up isn’t actually a skincare product as such but one i’d wanted to try for a few weeks and that is the new Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation. With my skin being really dry all of my foundations were sticking to every bit of dry skin making it so much more noticeable and a few people had said to me that this product doesn’t cling to dry skin at all, so yeah.. I bought it. 

Now onto the skincare products, the first thing I picked up was the Boots Botanics All Bright Cleansing Foam Wash. I’ve heard some great things about Boots own skincare range and this product is said to gently cleanse away impurities leaving the skin smoother and brighter. As i’d only been using one cleanser I think my skin had basically got used to it, so I picked this up to add into my skincare and i’ll use this in rotation of my other cleanser. Next up I spotted the Boots Botanics Ultra Calm Skin Calming Day Cream SPF15. As my skin has been so dry lately whenever I have tried to moisturise, it has left my skin with an unbearable burning sensation almost as if my skin has been irritated and this product is described as skin calming I grabbed it to inspect further and I ended up buying it. I used this last night, as I didn’t want to buy both the day and night cream and when I woke up this morning my skin looked and felt so much better. Lastly, I needed some new face wipes as I always like to have some just incase and I noticed the Nivea Gentle Cleansing Facial Wipes for Dry Skin were reduced. I’ve been using their primer from this range and as that works miracles on my dry skin I thought these were less likely to irritate any dry areas, being formulated for dry skin and all that.

So that is my little Boots haul, I will be reporting back on all of these products as I want to start featuring more skincare products on my blog.

Have you tried any of these products?
