Boots Botanics Hydrating Cream & Eye Roll-On Review

If you read my first beauty review on the "Boots Botanics Ionic Face Mask" you'll know that ive only recently started putting my faith back into beauty products. And after having such a great experience with the Botanics face mask i figurued id try a couple more of their beauty products and my review is a pretty interesting one.

I picked up the Botanics All Bright Hydrating Night Cream hoping that on the off chance it would give my skin the boost of brightness that it needs. The cream itself is thick and unlike your average moisturiser is pink in colour. At first i actually used it as a day cream as my skin is quite dry in areas and its a fact that night moisturisers are more nourishing therefor they leave my skin hydrated for longer. However trying to apply makeup over this is a nightmare and leaves it blotchy. So for just over a week i have been using it for its purpose of being a night cream. (Its a strange one) After applying and noticing how quickly it sinks into my skin it doesnt actually leave the skin feeling too moisturised, which being a night cream you would expect to be a little thicker on the skin. However i did notice that in the morning my skin DID look brighter and less rough which (if you think about it) is exactly what its meant to do. And even though it says nothing about it i think its helped my skin with calming and soothing any breakouts as my skin has been fully clear since using it! All in all id give it a score of 4/5.

Ive also ventured out into using the Botanics All Bright Refreshing Eye Roll-On which for the past week ive been raving about it to my friends. Unlike most eye roll-ons that are liquid based and leave you looking like youve just finished watching the end of "The Notebook". This particular eye brightener is gel based product and contains one of natures best brightening boosters, the hibiscus plant. Which (que advertising background music) contains its own weak acid that sloughs off dead skin cells to freshen, brighten and plump your complexion. Ive been using it both morning and night and immediently saw a difference after the first use. The cool metal roll-on ball  helped fight puffiness under my eyes and i have noticed a major different with the lightening effect on my dark circles. It is a beauty must have and id give it a hyped score of 5/5.
