Boots, the biggest drugstore in the UK, runs some fantastic deals such as their advantage card scheme, where your points turn into cash! I have claimed numerous goodies with my advantage card; it’s not one of those where you need to spend thousands to get a packet of crisps, it is a very generous scheme (in exchange, my buying habit info!).
I have already got three Chanel Quads (Garden Party, Winter Nights and Vanities) free with my card!
Another offer Boots often runs is money of vouchers, normally of £5 value. For example, if you spend £5, you will get a £5 skincare voucher. There will be around 6 brands you can choose a product from; unless you are choosing from the Boots Time Delay range of No. 7 you will normally need to add a bit of credit. You can spend a lot of time in Boots, just working out the best deals…
So I got one of these vouchers the other day and decided to try Boots Time Delay range. I have sampled a few things from them before and it is an ok range, not something I would buy if I didn’t have a voucher though.
However, I have found a gem;
Boots Purifying Cleansing Balm:
It is in a similar vein to the Eve Lom Cleanser, and comes with muslin cloth for cleansing.
A 200ml tub of Eve costs £78, whereas the Boots Cleanser costs £8.50.
I haven’t tried the Eve Lom before, but I have felt the consistency, which is creamer than the Boots Cleanser. The Boots balm reminds me of Vaseline (texture wise) and has a soft comforting smell, and rubs nicely into the skin for a deep cleanse.
Surprisingly, it doesn’t not leave any oily residue. When used with a flannel and hotish water, it makes my skin feel very very clean and radiant.
Also I have not had a reaction to this cleanser even though it is quite heavy. if anything it feels comforting on the skin. The cloth itself if very flimsy and a flannel works much better. The jar is huge and I can tell it will last a longgg time, even if I use q good wedge each night.
This is an unusual cleanser; it feels like valseline but it really does work and makes the skin feel super clean! I highly recommend it, especially for days when you feel kinda grimy.
