When it comes to searching for the perfect moisturiser, I always look for elements that keep oil at bay and help to balance out my skin. I’ve tried moisturisers that focus on clearing blemishes, keeping oil away and some that aim to control the oil. I’ve used moisturisers from both ends of the scale and never found something that truly suits my skin.
I’ve never tried Botanics skincare products before, so I saw the 3 for 2 offer in Boots on skincare the perfect time to give it a go. Botanics ‘Shine Away’ Mattifying Day Cream retails at £4.99 for a 50ml pot, so I wasn’t expecting it to work miracles. But boy, was I wrong!
This moisturiser is seriously light and fresh on the skin, exactly what I’ve been searching for. It sinks into the skin beautifully and having used it for a good week, I’ve been impressed with the results. It keeps my skin matte and oil-free and I’ve found it works perfectly as a base for foundation, perfect for the humid weather we are currently having! The cream contains clarifying willow bark, which is a natural source of salicylic acid (a spot-fighting ingredient raved about in the beauty industry) to help keep skin clear. Using the cream has helped improve the texture and appearance of my skin and I look forward to using it over the coming months!
