Boots Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Scrub, Body Wash, Body Lotion & Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about a number of vanilla-scented products from Boots’ Extracts collection. I’ve already reviewed Boots’ Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Spray, so it was time to take a closer look at the matching body care products. 🙂

Let’s start with Boots Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Scrub! I’ve tried a number of body scrubs from Boots, and this one is quite similar. This means that this scrub is on the gentler side. I’m satisfied that it exfoliates my skin, but I prefer grittier scrubs for my body. Having said that, I think this body scrub smells awesome!

Up next is Boots Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Wash! I think this is a nice shower gel. It smells lovely and it’s not drying. Boots did a great job with this one.

Onto Boots Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Lotion! This is a great little body lotion for when you’re in a hurry. It’s absorbed in no time, and it makes skin feel soft and hydrated all day. And the sweet and cuddly fragrance is an added bonus.

And last but not least… Boots Extracts Luscious Vanilla Body Butter. This is, without doubt, one of the best vanilla body butters out there. It feels nourishing, it’s not tacky at all, and, you guessed it, it makes your skin smell delicious! Well done, Boots!

Boots’ Extracts collection seems to be disappearing from the stores. The manager at my local store told me the entire line is getting a makeover. Let’s hope this is true!

Have you tried any Boots Extracts products? Which fragrance do you like best? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Boots Ingredients Super Hyaluronic Moisturising & Nourishing Sheet Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Boots’ Ingredients Super Hyaluronic Moisturising & Nourishing Sheet Face Mask. I’ve already tried the other 4 masks from this collection. If you’d like to read the reviews, click here.

OK, what about this mask? Well, it promises to leave skin feeling moisturised and nourished for up to 12 hours. This sounds great! But does it work? Read on…

I’ve tried this mask (I’ve even given it a second chance), and I’m disappointed. I don’t think that the serum they used for this mask is very moisturising or nourishing. I don’t want to say the serum felt drying, but let me put it this way… my skin would have gotten a lot more hydration from any random average face cream!

Based on my experience I wouldn’t recommend this sheet mask. However, if you’d like to try it… Boots’ Ingredients Super Hyaluronic Moisturising & Nourishing Sheet Face Mask is available for £2.50 at Boots. I bought this mask (and a few others) when Boots ran a 4 for £3 promotion.

Sanctuary Spa Intensive Heel Balm

Hi there! Today’s post is about the foot cream I’ve been using since early January – Sanctuary Spa Intensive Heel Balm.

This product promises “pampering moisture and concentrated nourishment” to make rough and dry heels feel super soft.

How’s the product? I think it’s awesome! It’s rich, but not greasy, and a little goes a long way. And it really helps with cracked heels!

OK, my feet are actually fine because I apply lotion or cream every day, but my husband’s feet… you don’t want to know! 😀

But guess what – this heel balm took care of my husband’s cracked heels – in 4 days. Is this awesome or what? I’m impressed!

The Sanctuary Spa Heel Balm is available as 75ml for £7.50. It’s not cheap. However, if you’re looking for a product that will take care of dry feet and cracked heels, you should give it a try!

Reducing My Oldies Stash – Boots Extract Zingy Satsuma Body Wash & Body Lotion

Hi there! Today’s review is about Boots Extracts Zingy Satsuma Body Wash & Body Lotion. I’ve had these products for a while, but just a few days ago I spotted a 4-piece Boots Extracts shower gel set which contained this satsuma shower gel (plus mango, strawberry and coconut). So I thought I should try and review these satsuma products!

Boots Extracts Zingy Satsuma Body Wash is lovely. It smells tangy and fresh. It’s the perfect early morning shower gel that wakes you up! I also like that the shower gel doesn’t feel drying. Nice one, Boots!

Boots Extracts Zingy Satsuma Body Wash & Body Lotion is very well done. It smells just as refreshing as as the shower gel. And the formula is lovely too. It feels rich, but it’s not sticky, so it’s great for when you’re in a hurry but you still want to moisturise your skin.

I think that Boots Extracts Zingy Satsuma is one of the nicest limited editions Boots ever did! I don’t remember how much I paid for these products, but if Boots brings these beauties back for Christmas 2018, I’ll buy another satsuma set (or two). 🙂

Sanctuary Spa Cleanse 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask

Hi there! I’ve got another face mask review for you today. 🙂 The Sanctuary Spa Cleanse 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask is a self-heating mask. It contains charcoal and essentials oils which promise to cleanse and purify the skin.

When I applied the mask, it felt warm. However, the warming effect lasted for just a few seconds. I left the mask on for about an hour before I washed it off with a foaming cleanser and a sponge.

I didn’t think that my skin felt particularly soft or that my pores looked different. But the mask did a great job around my nose! All in all, I am happy that the mask gave the skin around my nose a deep cleanse. However, the mask didn’t do much else, so I don’t think that I’d repurchase it.

The Sanctuary Spa Cleanse 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask is available as 15ml (sachet) for £2.99 and 100ml (tube) for £10.

Boots Ingredients Cleansing & Purifying Sheet Face Mask With Charcoal & Willow Bark

Hi there! And welcome to face mask week! Today’s post is about Boots’ Ingredients Cleansing & Purifying Sheet Face Mask With Charcoal & Willow Bark.

This sheet mask promises cleansed and revitalised skin in 15 minutes. Just cleanse your face, put the mask on, leave it on for 15 minutes (or until the sheet mask is dry), remove the mask, and massage any excess serum into your skin – job done!

So how’s the mask? Well, I think it’s excellent! When I used this mask for the first time, I could feel a tingling sensation on my skin. It wasn’t painful, and it didn’t feel scary. It was just enough for me to know that the product would work. And it did work!

This mask made my skin feel and look clearer than usual. At the same time it made my pores look smaller. It also seemed to have a calming effect because my skin tone looked a lot more even. To sum it up, this mask packed quite a punch! I would definitely recommend this face mask, and I will buy it again, no doubt!

Boots Ingredients Cleansing & Purifying Sheet Face Mask With Charcoal & Willow Bark is available for £2.50 at Boots. I bought this mask (and a few others) when Boots ran a 4 for £3 promotion.

Boxing Day Haul – Lots Of New Stuff

Hi there! Today’s post is about all the stuff I bought on Boxing Day + 1 present I received. I won’t be doing a big intro today. So let me just show you the stuff. 🙂

I got this The Body Shop gift set as a present. It contained 3 Almond Milk & Honey products + 1 body puff.

I bought this Boots No 7 Youthful Skincare Collection set. It was £10.

It contained 6 products – facial oil, serum, day & night creams, exfoliator, micellar water.

I only paid £5 for this Boots Extracts Sweet Mango set. Awesome value! The set contained 200ml body wash, 200ml body lotion, 70ml body spray, 50ml sugar scrub.

I bought a Sanctuary Spa toiletries set. It was £12.50.

The set contained 4 full-size products: hand cream, body wash, bath soak, body butter.

I also bought this year’s Boots Extracts limited edition toiletries collection – for £7.

This year’s limited edition is called Tangy Passion Fruit. The big tin contained 200ml body wash, 200ml body lotion, 200ml sugar scrub, and 75ml hand cream.

I also bought this year’s Boots Extracts “4 seasons” set. It was £10. I didn’t take a picture of the packaging because it was kind of bulky. Anyhoo… the set contained 4 body washes…

… 4 body lotions…

… 2 body butters, and 2 sugar scrubs. Awesome stuff!

This is everything I bought on Boxing Day. I managed to restrain myself – I only bought the bare necessities.

Have you been sale shopping? What did you buy? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading!
