Boots Botanics All Bright Cleansing Cream – £5.49 250ml.
I picked up the Boots Botanics All Bright Cleansing Cream about a month ago now. I wanted a nice rich cleanser to use at the end of the day, especially as summer is drawing to a close and colder weather is coming in. I thought the Boots Botanics All Bright Cleansing Cream would be a good contender as it is gentle and I generally like the Botanics range at Boots.
The Boots Botanics All Bright Cleansing Cream has like the name suggests, a thick, creamy consistency – surprise surprise. It does feel luxurious and nourishing on the skin. It has a light floral scent with the hibiscus really coming through. It is paraben-free so could be suitable for those who have sensitive skin. I usually apply this to dry skin using my fingers and remove with a wet flannel. On the Boots website it suggests using cotton wool pads but I generally don’t use these.
Boots Botanics All Bright Cleansing Cream – The Verdict
I found that the Boots Botanics All Bright Cleansing Cream removed my make up well, but it seemed to leave some residue on my skin and it would never feel fully clean. Also, despite the thick, luxurious consistency which hinted it would be nourishing, and the residue left, it also seemed to strip my skin and leave it feeling a little tight. I don’t really suffer from dry skin and rarely does a cleanser leave my skin feeling tight. I’m not sure what ingredients in the Boots Botanics All Bright Cleansing Cream I might have a sensitivity to, perhaps the fragrance or one of the acids.
I generally like the Boots Botanics range and this particular cleansing cream is often on offer, being just £3.66 for 250ml at the moment. I like the ethos and generally I get on well with their projects, but this one just falls short for me.
