Botanicals Natural Organic Skincare: Review


Ok, I have a confession to make.  Until very recently, I didn't look after my skin at all!  A skincare routine you say?  What's one of those?  The only think I owned was a basic moisturiser (which I never used) and *shock horror* cheap makeup wipes.  One of the first things I bought as a result of blogging was a micellar water (which I still rave about now!) but other then I still hadn't really got into my skin care.  That is until recently, when I went for my first ever facial.  They were not impressed by my skin and even less so with my skincare routine (or lack of one).  So since then I have been trying out a few different products to see what works with my skin, and what a difference they can really make.  Starting out with a moisturiser and cleanser from Botanicals Natural Organic Skincare.

As far as skincare was concerned, I thought starting off with something that was organic was the best way to go.  Your skin is a living organ so treating it with natural ingredients seems to make the most sense to me.  My skin is naturally oily but I do get dry patches (usually my own fault for not drinking enough water!) so I started with a cleanser.

The cleanser I've been using is the Botanicals Cleansing Melt in Mandarin and Chamomile, I chose the mandarin and chamomile range rather then then the rose and chamomile due to my oily skin.  This product is really unusual, when you first open it looks like a solid wax, but when you take some out and rub it between your fingers for a second or two and it quickly melts until it has an oil like texture.  I don't know if this is just a gimmick or there is actually some reason for it but personally I love it, it feels really luxurious on my kin and is easy to apply and remove.  I can't say it has worked miracles just yet but it has defiantly helped improve my skin.

I have also been using the Botanicals Mandarin and Chamomile Moisturiser, this is a light, refreshing moisturiser that still packs enough clout to really nourish your skin.  Even when I was really ill and got very dry skin this managed to combat it, it feels really soothing when applied.

I love how natural this collection is, the scents of both products are really organic too and it makes a change from being really in your face as some products are.  I would really recommend trying these products out, in fact I have my eye on this starter kit.

How do you feel about natural skincare?
