Boots botanics skin relief serum

Sunday, 20 January 2013



So for some very odd reason my skin decided to get super sensitive as of recently. I would constantly have sore, red and itchy skin, particularly when waking up and had no clue why. I bought this serum as it claims to reduce skin sensitivity in two weeks! It's key ingredient to do this is marshmallow, which soothes skin and makes it less reactive, who knew hey! Does this mean drinking lots of hot chocolate with marshmallows in will help too?

The serum is of a super light consistently, a little like caudalie thirst quenching serum, however not as moisturising. In fact it's not really moisturising, but that is okay as that's not what it claims. I apply this after cleansing and toning, but before moisturising and instantly my skin, particularly when irritated, feels instantly soothed and calm. After two weeks use I can say this has definitely got my skin back to normal! I only need to use this maybe once or twice a week now, which is great! My skin is not as red, rough, sore or itchy. This is currently on offer in boots for £4.99, so give it a try if you have sensitive skin maybe!

  1. Oooh I'll definitely consider picking this up as I love the consistency of the Caudalie serum. This sounds like the perfect winter saviour with the harsh weather making our skin red and raw!

  6. This product sounds great - I have particularly red cheeks which are easily aggravated so this might do the trick at calming them down
