February Beauty. Hit, miss or maybe

How often do you walk into a shop and steer clear of their own named brands??? I have to admit that I do. Wrongly, I assume that own brands don’t have the gravitas and provide the results of specific brands.

This month’s post proves how wrong I have been. Boots has come out top trumps. Really, really top quality, providing brilliant results at even better prices. Sometimes it doesn’t pay to pay!!!!

Hit

  • Boots L;ft Bounce Back Night Re-hydrating Cream. £11.99

Smells absolutely lovely. Thick, velvety and luxurious. Lovely packaging. Feels much more expensive than it is. In the morning my skin was plumped and lush.

  • Boots L;ft Moisturising Day Cream. £11.99

I have nothing negative to say about this. Smells lovely, nice packaging, really moisturising and quirky absorbed.

  • Boots L;ft Buff and Glow 60 Second Polish. £12.99

Top product. Love it. Massage the gel onto dry skin for 60 seconds and it buffs away the dead skin. Use 3 times a week. Skin feels really smooth and definitely looks brighter.

  • Boots Lasting Perfection Foundation. £5.99

I was given this as a freebie from the make up artist at work. To be honest I thought it would be pants so I decided to just wear it on stage. I was wrong. I bloody love this stuff and considering the price it’s a major bargain. Its full coverage which I need. Hides the redness, open pores and dark circles without looking cakey and blends like a dream.

  • Kiko Pure Clean Scrub and Peel Wipes. £5.90

This came as a recommendation from a friend who knows my love of a scrub that SCRUBS. None of these namby, pamby scrubs for me. I like a scrub to buff away past sins. This is such a scrub you can only use it twice a week but by gum does it work. The wipes are double sided. One side is the scrubby side (and it’s really not for the faint hearted) and the other side, wipe over after you’ve scrubbed. No more dull skin for me. And at a bargain price.

Miss.

  • Origins. Plantscription Powerful Lifting Cream. £46.80

Hmmmmm. For the price and the title of this cream I was expecting MIRACULOUS results. I was not as impressed as I felt I should have been. Firstly a disclaimer and it is quite a large disclaimer. I don’t have particularly saggy skin or many lines so maybe I am being unfair. I was sent this to review and so it probably wouldn’t be something I would usually buy. I liked the smell of this cream and I also liked the texture. I just felt that for me, the price of this cream is expensive and to be honest I don’t think it produced better results than the £11.99 cream I reviewed earlier.

Maybe

  • Clinique All About The Eyes Serum. £26.75

Particularly lovely if you put in the fridge and want a nice, soothing and cooling eye serum. Roller ball feels nice. I just feel that I need something more moisturising.

  • Dr Organic Body Polish Pre Tan Exfoliator. £8.99

Disclaimer. I am not a fake tan fan so I was using this for the sole purpose of a body exfoliator/polish. It was fine. A bit meh. I wouldn’t buy this over a coffee scrub which are literally the best things ever.

Thanks for reading.
