You are never too young or too old to start taking care of your skin with a skincare routine. I recently discovered an excellent online offer at Boots which includes everything you need for a good, well thought-out skincare routine for just £5! So, whatever your budget, low or high, you can now get everything you need to start caring for your skin, for just £5, for products which will last you at least a month.
The Boots Essentials Face Routine Collection would normally cost £9 when bought individually, however the bundle price is just £5, and with free delivery to store, it is even better value. Included in the collection is a Cucumber Micellar Water, Cucumber Facial Wash, Cucumber Facial Scrub, Cucumber 3-Minute Clay Mask, a Cucumber Eye Gel and a Fragrance Free Moisturising Lotion. Both the Cucumber and Fragrance Free ranges are suitable for all skin types.
Firstly, I would start with the Boots Essentials Cucumber Micellar Water, to gently cleanse, soften and purify the skin in one simple step, removing any impurities and leaving the skin looking and feeling squeaky clean. The reason I love Micellar Waters is that they are great for quickly removing makeup, or if you are in a rush in a morning, you don’t have to start splashing your face with water, you can simply apply to a cotton pad and swipe.
For a second, more thorough cleanse, you would then use the Boots Essentials Cucumber Facial Wash. Enriched with the soothing cucumber and vitamins, this facial wash effectively removes make-up and excess oils leaving the skin thoroughly cleansed and refreshes. You lather a small amount in your hands and then massage over the face and neck, followed by a good rinse and then gently drying with a towel.
Exfoliation is great for the skin as it removes any dead skin cells, and reveals a fresh layer of skin, and is also great if you have clogged pores. I would recommend using the Boots Essentials Cucumber Facial Scrub 2-3 times a week, although it can be used on a daily basis. This gentle scrub works deep into the skin to revive and brighten by lightly polishing away any dry patches and dead skin cells.
If like me, you enjoy indulging in a little pamper time, this collection even comes with the Boots Essentials Cucumber 3-Minute Clay Mask. This cleansing clay mask works to draw out any impurities and excess oils from the pores leaving skin looking and feeling a lot more clean and toned. It can be used once or twice a week for just three minutes, but I personally always like to leave masks on for a little longer if I have the time, to let them work their magic further.
For the eyes, you receive the Boots Essentials Cucumber Eye Gel, and as a contact-lens wearer, I find that this does not irritate my eye area whatsoever. The Eye Gel is easily absorbed into the skin to cool, refresh, reduce puffiness and lightly hydrate the eye area. It does recommend using both morning and evening, but I would definitely use this first thing in the morning as it does a great job of waking you up!
The final step is the Boots Essentials Fragrance Free Moisturising Lotion, which is enriched with vitamins to help maintain the moisture balance of the skin to leave it feeling super soft and smooth whilst also providing antioxidant protection against environmental damage. This can also be used both morning and night, and it makes an excellent base for applying your makeup onto.
The Boots Essentials Face Routine Collection is available online at Boots.
