Skincare Haul: Boots Simply Sensitive and Botanics


I knew Boots had some great offers on so I couldn't resist having a peek in after I'd had my free eye test at Optical Express (find out more here). 

I really like the products I've tried from Boot's Simply Sensitive range, where all the products contain soothing aloe vera, have no fragrance and colour, are hypo-allergenic and have been dermatologically tested.  The range has all the basic skincare items as well as a few specialist products and a selection of cleansers and moisturisers. I am currently enjoying the toner, have nearly finished the night cream which I've loved and have finished the eye make-up remover pads which were great.

At the moment, selected products from the range are available for half-price and as the products are great value anyway, the discount makes them even more of a bargain. I couldn't resist picking up the Cleansing Lotion as I like to have one to use with cotton pads for when I'm feeling too lazy to use my Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser. I can also use this on days when I haven't worn any make-up so as not to waste my more expensive cleanser. The Anti Redness Cream was a bit of an impulse buy so I'm give it a go when my face is a bit red and spotty. 

I nearly repurchased the Simply Sensitive Night Cream but thought I'd try something different so I went with the Boots Botantics Skin Calming Night Cream Ultra Calm, which was also on offer with 1/3 off, which "soothes and replenishes through the night. Enriched with calming marshmallow and linden flower, it is designed for sensitive skin". The range has recently been repackaged and relaunched with new products with the facial skincare being split up into ranges for different skin types and problems. 

The Sudocrem was a by the till grab, as the tub in my house is either as old as me or my brother (so 20 or 14 years old - yum) and I love to use this on spots because it helps to dry them up. The tube is so much more hygienic as well for this purpose.
