Botanicals nourishing face balm

My hero products for this winter: Botanicals nourishing face balm and the Botanticals calming lotion

Botanticals nourishing face balm: I suffer from dry skin, eczema and acne - although it is mostly under control at the moment, I do get the odd flare-up, but in winter the cold months, my skin can get very taut and dry, even peels. And with all my issues of having problematic skin, I have to be careful with what creams I put on my face.  With Botanicals, I can honestly say it is the best brand I have used in a very long time.  It sooths my face, it calms my face and most importantly it nourishes and moisturises my face. I Love, love love this face balm - it's perfect for me.

It is made entirely of active plant derived ingredients, with no water, fillers or chemical nasties, this balm will also support your skin’s natural ability to regenerate new skin cells; perfect for dry skin. It is also enriched with organic shea butter and infused with wild rose and rose geranium - renowned for their nourishing and revitalising properties - It smells Divine.

I found a little goes a long way with this balm, it melts into a liquid, and applies over the face with ease - it quickly absorbs into the skin, leaving a refreshed and soft finish.

Botanticals calming lotion: designed to soothe and calm your skin after shaving, or waxing, and it will support the skin’s natural elasticity by replenishing essential moisture lost during hair removal. Ingredients included are essential extracts of marigold, aloe-vera, lavender and tea tree. These calming, soothing and antiseptic blends contribute into this pure and natural effective and caring body treatment.

I find this lotion instantly soothing and calming, and is a pleasure to use on my skin, especially after a shave.  It has a lovely thick texture and you only need a little when applying to the skin.  Also it's got the most Divine smell. 

You can order these products from the Botanticals website, and currently if you sign-up to their newsletter, you will receive a £5 off your first order voucher code to use if you spend over £20.
