Botanics Skincare, First Impressions

*This post discusses gifted products*



I was recently lucky enough to receive some products in the post from skincare brand 'Botanics.'  Botanics is a Boots exclusive brand with a variety of skincare ranges. I have been a regular user of the 'All Bright Foaming Face Wash' for a number of months now, so when Botanics got in touch to see whether I would like to test some of the other products within the 'All Bright' range, of course, I jumped at the opportunity.






All Bright Refreshing Eye Roll-On


Being someone who is often staying up late and getting up early, you can bet that I am prone to under-eye bags. I've never considered purchasing a product to help with this issue up until recently and whilst I'm yet to see any drastic improvement, (I've been using it for a few days, but still haven't kicked the bad sleeping habits) I do love the product. When applying the roll-on to your under-eyes you're greeted with a delightful cooling and relaxing feeling. I especially love applying this before going to sleep.





All Bright Radiance, Concentrate Serum


Admittedly I am still relatively new to serums, having only ever used one other before I can't necessarily say that I am an expert - However... So far I am loving the effects that using this serum has had on my skin. Currently here in the UK, we're slap bang in the middle of a heatwave and for me that typically means one thing. Drier skin. Naturally, I have combination skin... It's taken me a while to realize that oily skin means thirsty skin. Previously I used to simply attack my face with a drying face wash, and then attack it again with face wash wipes at the first sign of oil. However, nowadays I'm all about hydration and this serum is my first step to ensuring my face feels super hydrated! This serum works to improve skin tone and texture, whilst hydrating your skin at the same time!



All Bright Cleansing Toner + Radiance Balm


Toning your skin after cleansing is an extremely important step. It's a step I'd ignored for a very long period of time and have only recently begun doing again. This toner helps to improve your skin texture, radiance and leaves your skin feeling super refreshed and revitalized. Popping it on before your favourite serums and moisturiser provides you with an extra refreshing kick, whilst working to improve your skin texture.

Similarly, the radiance balm works to improve your skin tone - brightening your skin and leaving you looking super hydrated and glowing once applied.
