The secret to beating dry winter skin?

Boots Botanics was a brand I often over looked, up until they had their revamp.... then they suddenly were on my radar and I was intrigued, mainly by their organic line. 

The first thing that caught my eye was this Boots Botanics facial oil 100% Organic,made from mainly almond oil, rosehip and argan oil. 

The claim
'This aromatic oil melts into lacklustre skin to lock in moisture for 8 hours while softening, conditioning and helping to restore its natural glow. Use regularly to boost the performance of your daily skincare regime.'

Now it states to use it morning and night, but I found that it didn't really sink in fully, so applying foundation on top of it would be a nightmare. But as a night facial oil it was great. I applied it a few hours before bed to give it time to be absorbed, a few small drops are sufficient enough for the whole face (which means it will last forever!), I does leave a slight residue, but by morning that's gone. I was apprehensive about using this at first, I was worried it may cause breakouts, but to my surprise it did nothing of the sort. I awoke to beautiful soft and glowing skin, it looked and felt more plump and hydrated. This is perfect for the cold months, when skin (especially mine) can become dry. It really improved the overall look and feel of my skin, I'm so pleased.

 Could this be the secret to beating your winter skin?


  1. I'm really glad you found this useful for the colder months! May have to give it a try!xx

  2. Its not that expensive either, so its defiantly worth a shot.

  3. I always worry about using oils on my face in case they're too heavy or greasy and cause spots but glad this one didn't! May have to try it out!

  4. Yeh, I have always worried about that, specially because I had acne in my younger days so im always worried I might trigger it again, but this was great and didnt cause spots.
