You might have seen recently on my social media that Botanics reached out to me to become a brand ambassador. *I’m super excited* They asked me to help promote their relaunch in the UK. They have rebranded their products with a cute logo and with pastel packaging. And I’m super thrilled to be able to test out their products and provide you today with a Botanics First Impressions post. Over the next couple months I will tell you what works and doesn’t, and how they have helped me.
Botanics is a very affordable brand that you can find at Boots. The prices range from anything as little as £2/3 to £15. They promote natural skin care made from plants, therefore you’ll see a lot of #theplantone. They have 5 ranges: Organic, All Bright, Hydration Burst, Radiant Youth and Triple age renew. The ranges all pretty much do what the name states. My first care package from Botanics contained All Bright and Organic ranges.
The two products I received from this range were a Micellar 3 in 1 Cleansing Solution (*) and a Purifying Face Scrub (*). This range smells delicious, and the scent is very strong when scrubbing in the face scrub. First thoughts on the cleansing solution are that it does its job, it removes my makeup! My skin is quite sensitive and thankfully this doesn’t irritate it. I find it very similar to the Garnier micellar water. The face scrub is very gentle and left my face feeling squeaky clean. A little bit goes a long way and my skin did appear to have more radiance. At the moment I haven’t found any down sides to these products but this is only my first impressions with them. You can pick them both up for £5.49 and Boots currently have a buy 1 get the 2nd half price.
Botanics kindly sent me their Hydrating Day Cream (*) and Rosewater Toning Spritz (*). The scent I get from the day dream is very citrus with the hint of fresh plants haha. And the toning spritz is very florally. Sorry, I’m bad at describing scents. This cream is very heavy and does take some time to sink in, but my skin feels fabulous after. The toning spritz is very refreshing. Though, right now can’t notice any difference. You can pick the day cream up for £9.99 and the toning spritz up for £7.99. The organic range is slightly more expensive. However, that’s due to the ingredients being more premium than the other ranges.
My overall Botanics first impressions are that the scents of all the products are quite strong. However, I don’t find they are chemically strong, thankfully. I have not yet seen any bad reactions to the products sent to me. But I was only sent four products, so praying the rest are just as good. This range is mega affordable and always has discounts running but I do have a discount code you can use that saves you £2 – BOTANICS2.
If you have tried any of their products let me know in the comments below? And what are your opinions on them?
