The boots essentials actually divided into two collections, the fragrance free for sensitive skin and the cucumber for all skin types. For the cucumber collection is base on the green color of cucumber, while the principal ingredient is extract of cucumber. Simple as that, the package of the collection is all plastic and simple green, reflective of the price. Therefore, you will get satisfyingly large bottles with a small amount. I always being so doubtful of the cosmetic with cheap price, and I just wanted to know why it’s quite popular from UK to China. Here it comes my review.
Boots Essentials Cucumber Facial Wash 150ml
It is a really large paste! The description claim that it can effectively remove make up and excess oils leaving skin. You can hardly remove your eye liner if I am being honest. It possibly remove the light not heavy make up. A pretty girl will never be lazy, professionally, we have to use a proper make up remover. Turning back to this facial wash, it’s quite nice to be fair, it cleans without making your skin sticky or dry. Furthermore, I found it is helpful for my acne.
Boots Essentials Cucumber Eye Make Up Remover Gel 150ml
For removing eye make up, I usually put the remover on a cotton pad and wipe it off. In fact, it is gently remove the shadow not my waterproof mascara or eye liner. It really struggles to remove it, feel like I am going to wipe my eye lashes off. As a result, I think it’s better to use this remover gel when you wear a little bit of eye make up.
Boots Essentials Cucumber Facial Toner 100ml
This is an alcohol-based toner, you can easily smell the alcohol when you pad on your face. Some people might say the alcohol will harsh for skin, on the other hand, it will helps for the acne. I am not a fan of this toner, just because I really don’t like the smell. It might be a good idea to use this toner to make a sheet mask. This will keep your skin fresh and hydrate, it’s a really good wake-up mask for early morning.
Boots Essentials Cucumber Eye Gel 15ml
As I have dry and dark eye circles, Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair, an expensive and awesome night eye cream. Well, it’s ideal at night as the name it is. What about in the day? I didn’t expect such a low price eye gel might give me lovely impression. Many of my friends in China asked me to get it for them when I go back, it’s a HEAT! Massage around the eyes and you will find it is absolutely fantastic when the gel sink into the skin. Not tense, not sticky, but fresh and moisture. Sometime you might find there’s small pimples at the eye circle, because the eye cream you use is too rich for the sensitive eye skin. Then you definitely need to try this eye gel, not only does it help the dumb, but it also helps you get rid of the pimples.
Boots Essentials Cucumber Moisturising Cream 100ml
The cream smells fresh and natural. It’s easy to apply but it make my skin a bit greasy. It was really good to keep the skin moisture, but to be honest, I prefer to use this cream on my body instead of my face. Because my skin get a bit oily after using it. Indeed it make my skin soft and smooth. It’s basically good in the dry and cold climate.
Boots Essentials 3 minute clay Mask 50ml
I love it! First of all, I love the price, that’s the reason why I always apply a thick layer on my face and neck. Secondly, it will deeply clean your skin. The peel off mask will have better cleaning function, but I am concerned if I might have more wrinkles when I am pulling my skin. Therefore, this gentle clay mask is a better choice. It cleans and minimize the pores without drying my skin. I always find my face immediately brighten after washing out. Finally, it is the amazingly moisture. You might find your skin is a bit sting when you apply on your skin. Don’t worry, it is not the reaction of allergy. It’s because your skin is in a very dry condition, and the hydration has to get into the deeper cells. Normally, the mask with cleansing role, it’s better to apply once per week, since this mask is quite gentle, I use it for twice a week. It only takes 3 minutes as the name said, while I might use it for 5 minutes, It’s not a big deal.
Give it a try, for this price, you got nothing to lose.
Each items cost £1.50, sometimes you will find 3 for 2 or even 3 for 3 in boots.
