BOOTS SKINCARE HAUL & FIRST IMPRESSIONS


The time is passing so quickly it's startling, I have had this post in the works for weeks. It was just supposed to be a haul but by the time I remembered to post I had already tried them all so thought I would squeeze some first impressions/mini reviews in for you. Let me know if you have tried any of these products in the comments below and if you have any recommendations too. I am in the online shopping stage of social distancing and have been buying everything and anything over the past two weeks including massage slippers. 



L'Oreal Pure Clay Detox Mask  Repurchase This is a tried and true holy grail of mine, I am obsessed with this mask. How can something so affordable be so good, it feels great on my skin, dries down in a way that feels like it is doing something and when I remove it with warm water and my Face Halo my skin feels so soft and refreshed. I really think this is a terrific mask especially for the price. 

L'Oreal Pure Clay Glow Scrub Repurchase Another product I love dearly and a repurchase, I must have gone through at least four of these so far. It is a product I keep returning to. Like the Detox Mask the Glow Scrub for me is a cut above the rest. It contains salicylic acid so great for problematic acne prone skin, there are tiny granules for physical exfoliation but it is really gentle in my opinion and I used to use it twice daily. I know a lot of people are anti-scrub and I have received what many people say about physical scrubs being aggressive so I try not to use it every single day but I do still love it. 



No7 Protect and Perfect Intense Advanced Sun Protection Stick First Impression This has been the sun screen I have been using for the past week and I am not a fan. Originally, it seemed so convenient especially when I just want to sit in my garden. This was not for me at all, it's meant exclusively for pool or beach days I think it is not suitable beneath makeup and feels quite thick and unpleasant in my opinion. I much prefer the La Roche Posay sunscreen which is my go-to but I really wanted to find a more affordable alternative as I get through it so quickly. 

Aveeno Daily Moisturising Hand Cream Mini Review A gem of a find. I have spent a lot more money on hand creams in the past but this is beautifully moisturising and genuinely fast absorbing. It's not in a massive bottle either which means it fits in my handbag. I think I will definitely repurchase this. 

Soap & Glory In The Fast Lane 2 Minute Polish & Peel First Impression I have tried this once in the shower, I am not sure if it actually peels. It feels very spa like and can make my skin tingle, I haven't experienced anything magical happen to my skin. I do tend to like Soap & Glory products but I don't know if I will repurchase this, a lot of "polish and peel" products tend to be more of a gimmick.


Too Cool For School Egg Mousse Pack First Impression By far the coolest (punny) product in this haul, I had no idea what to expect with this and am not entirely sure what it does. From the instructions you shake it vigorously and squirt the appropriate amount onto your hand, it's like a mousse, I might do a full review on this so you can see the full texture it's unlike anything: whipped and buoyant. You then massage it into your face for a minute or two and leave it for ten minutes like a mask. It's touted for dull, oily/combination skin which it totally me. The first time I tried it I really enjoyed the process but didn't leave it on for longer than two minutes I didn't know I was supposed to leave it on for longer. My skin did feel brighter afterwards but I did use this after using the L'Oreal Detox Mask.

Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed this post. Weirdly, I have so many post ideas, I  am in the right frame of mind to blog more consistently, however, even though it only feels like a week when I log in again it has usually been over a month. Nevertheless, come back soon I have a post on SPF coming soon. Comment below what your thoughts are on these products, let me know if you have tried anything and if you have any Boots products you constantly repurchase. Take care. 

Have you tried any of these? Do you have any recommendations? 

Love
