Reducing My Oldies Stash – Boots Extracts Cocoa Butter Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about Boots Extracts Cocoa Butter Body Butter. I can’t believe I never reviewed this! Boots seem to be redoing their Extracts collection, and I hope this one’s going to be part of whatever new collection they come up with. Here’s why…

This body butter is the most wonderful cocoa butter I’ve ever tried. The fragrance is hot cocoa and chocolate, and the formula is a dream. This body butter is insanely nourishing. It makes my skin feel super soft without making it feel sticky. This body butter is simply amazing!

Boots Extracts Cocoa Butter Body Butter is available as 200ml. I purchased this body butter as part of a half price gift set.

Boots Ingredients Sheet Masks – Which One Is Best?

Hi there! Today’s post is about ALL the sheet masks Boots offers under its “Ingredients” brand. Since I’ve tried all the masks, here’s what I think. 🙂

Boots Ingredients Super Hyaluronic Sheet Face Mask

Let’s start with my least favourite Ingredients mask! I was expecting Boots’ Super Hyaluronic to provide proper hydration. However, the mask left me disappointed because it didn’t hydrate my skin at all. I wouldn’t say it was dehydrating, but it wasn’t really that far off. I gave this mask a second chance, but I had the same experience. I wouldn’t recommend this mask, and I wouldn’t buy it again.

Boots Ingredients Lotus Flower & Tiger Lily Sheet Face Mask

This is another Ingredients mask that I wouldn’t recommend or buy it again. Whilst this mask didn’t dehydrate my skin, it just didn’t do anything. It didn’t brighten my skin, it didn’t make my skin look more radiant, it didn’t make my skin look or feel different at all. If I hadn’t used this mask, I wouldn’t have missed it.

Boots Ingredients Rooibos Sheet Face Mask

Now we’re moving on to the better Ingredients face masks! I really enjoyed the Rooibos mask because it made my skin look and feel energised and refreshed. This is a great face mask! Well done, Boots!

Boots Ingredients Safflower & Peony Sheet Face Mask

This is another great Ingredients mask. I’d rate it slighter higher than the Rooibos mask because this one delivered on its younger looking skin promise! Thank you, Boots!

Boots Ingredients Charcoal & Willow Bark Sheet Face Mask

And here’s my favourite! This mask has impressive skin cleansing and purifying powers. My skin looked and felt clearer and cleaner, my pores appeared smaller, my skin tone appeared to be more even, and my skin felt calmer overall. This mask is one of the best masks I’ve ever tried, and I would recommend it to everyone with (or without) problem skin.

Have you tried any of the Ingredients masks? Or would you like to try them? 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.

Boots Ingredients Energising & Revitalising Sheet Face Mask With Rooibos

Hi there! It’s been a while since I tried a new sheet mask, so I gave Boots Ingredients Energising & Revitalising Sheet Face Mask with Rooibos a go. This sheet mask promises to leave skin feeling revitalised and energised for a whole day – all in 15 minutes. Does it work?

I’ve previously mentioned that the shape of Boots’ Ingredients sheet masks in incredibly awkward, and this mask is no different. However, despite its funny shape, this mask is actually very nice!

OK, so I left the mask on for much longer than 15 minutes (it was something between 30 and 45 minutes). But I always do that. 🙂

And when I took the mask off, my skin looked… energised! I can’t really describe it because most of the time my skin is rather moody (which is my fault because I always stay up late…). So it was surprising to see my skin looking refreshed and full of energy. It was like my skin was saying “let’s go!”

Since there was plenty of serum left in the sachet, I’ve used said serum instead of my night cream for a few days. And I really love what this serum did for my skin!

To make a long story short – I think this mask is awesome, and I will buy it again. I would recommend it to everyone! Just make sure you use up the serum from the sachet, OK?

Boots Ingredients Energising & Revitalising Sheet Face Mask with Rooibos is available for £2.50 at Boots. I got my Ingredients face masks when Boots ran a 2 for £3 promotion.

Have you tried this face mask? If so, how did you like it? Or would you like to try this mask? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Boots Ingredients Radiance & Brightening Sheet Face Mask With Lotus Flower & Tiger Lily

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing Boots’ Ingredients Radiance & Brightening Sheet Face Mask with Lotus Flower & Tiger Lily. This face mask promises to leave skin “shining with radiance and looking brighter” – in 15 minutes.

So how’s the mask? I didn’t notice any difference. I had the mask on for almost 45 minutes, but it didn’t seem to do anything for me. I’ve also used the leftover product from the sachet as a night serum for a few days. However, I still didn’t notice any difference at all.

It’s also not great that this mask fits extremely poorly. It looks like it was made for Stewie Griffin. My friend Stashy captured it perfectly.

Based on my experience I wouldn’t recommend this face mask. However, if you’re interested… Boots Ingredients Radiance & Brightening Sheet Face Mask with Lotus Flower & Tiger Lily is available for £2.50 at Boots. I got my Ingredients face masks when Boots ran a 2 for £3 promotion. So don’t forget to check for offers before you buy!

Reducing My Oldies Stash – Boots Extracts Rosehip Body Butter

Hi there! Welcome to today’s episode of “Reducing My Oldies Stash”. 🙂 It’s been a while since I bought several tubs of Boots’ Extracts Rosehip Body Butter. Whilst I managed to finish the first tub within weeks of purchasing the lot, the remaining tubs have been sitting in my stash for ages – until recently! I’ve been using this body butter on and off for a few weeks now. And if you read on, I’ll tell you how I like it.
boots-extracts-rosehip
I think this rosehip body butter is fantastic. It’s rich but it’s absorbed quickly. It makes my skin feel soft and hydrated – but it doesn’t feel sticky or greasy at all. It’s perfect! I also like the fragrance – it’s subtle and very natural. It’s almost like rosehip tea – but fresher!

Unfortunately Boots’ Extracts Rosehip Body Butter has been discontinued (Idiots!). However, I have a few tubs left, and I’ll be enjoying them for as long as they last.

Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Reducing My Oldies Stash – Boots Extracts Olive Body Butter

Hi there! And welcome to today’s episode of ‘Reducing My Oldies Stash’. 😉 Today I’m reviewing an old favourite, Boots Extracts Olive Body Butter.

This product promises to moisturise and to soften skin with the help of olive oil, shea butter, cocoa butter and sweet almond oil. In addition, this body butter promises nourished and healthy looking skin. If you read on, I’ll tell you more! 🙂
boots-extracts-olive
First of all, this body butter smells amazing. No, it doesn’t smell like olives or olive oil. It smells fresh, green, joyful and feminine. It’s perfect – I love it! And I’ve never come across any other ‘green’ fragrance that smells this lovely.

Now let’s get to this body butter’s actual job – skin care! This body butter is definitely nourishing and moisturising. It makes my skin feel soft and supple. It’s perfect for dry, very dry and flaky skin. However, this body butter isn’t sticky at all because it’s easy to massage into the skin, and it’s absorbed quickly. I think the formula is perfect.

Because of this it is very unfortunate that Boots discotinued this body butter. And it’s even worse hat they replaced it with a cheap smelling strawberry body butter. I’m glad that I still have a few tubs of this olive body butter. I’ll be enjoying them very much, no doubt.

Boots Botanics Vitamin Recovery Mask

Boots Vitamin Recovery Face MaskHi there! I never got around to use my ancient Boots Botanics face masks. But I’m quite obsessed with face masks at the moment, so I’ve finally tried this Boots Botanics Vitamin Recovery Mask.

This mask is meant to be wiped off with a cotton pad (but not rinsed) after a few minutes on the skin. That way some of the product remains on skin and it can continue to work its magic. 🙂

So was the mask any good? Yes! This mask was nourishing and refreshing at the same time. That was very delightful. And it smelled gorgeous. It was a real treat for my skin!

I don’t think my skin looked particularly ‘recharged’. But my skin felt soft and supple – it was just what I wanted. The only negative thing about this mask is that it has been discontinued and I can’t repurchase it. I really need to check out Boots’ current Botanics product line. Maybe there is something similar…

Are there any face masks you would recommend? Please feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Boots Extracts Shea Butter Body Butter

Hi there! Now that it’s getting colder, my skin needs a little extra care and attention to stay healthy and moisturised. Because of this I’m now using the wonderful Boots Extracts Shea Butter Body Butter.

Boots revamped its entire Extracts collection and unfortunately this body butter was discontinued. However, I’ve got two tubs left so I don’t have to say goodbye to this gorgeous beauty staple just yet.
2015 Boots Extracts Shea Butter 01
In my opinion, Boots should have kept this product in its Extracts collection; this body butter does a great job moisturising dry skin and its heavenly scent reminds me of Nutella – it’s just a little more chocolatey and nutty and a tad less sweet.

Whilst Boots Extracts Shea Butter Body Butter has been discontinued, I recommend the brazil nut, cocoa and vanilla body butters from Boots’ Extracts collection; if you enjoy sweet and warm scents in body butters, you’ll enjoy them. Boots Extracts body butters are available as 200 ml tubs for £6 each.

Boots Extracts Brazil Nut Body Butter

Hi there! In the past few months I’ve reviewed quite a few Superdrug own brand products and I think that reviews of some of my favourite Boots own brand products are way overdue. One of my favourite body moisturisers is Boots Extratcs Brazil Nut Body Butter.

Whilst Boots has redesigned the packaging of its entire Extracts collection, the quality and the scent of this body butter remained the same. This means that this product is still the ultimate cookie dough body butter! 🙂 I kid you not. This body butter smells just as sweet and delicious as vanilla cookie dough!
Extracts Brazil Nut
Yes, I know that brazil nuts don’t smell or taste like cookie dough at all, but seriously, who would want to smell like bitter and pungent brazil nut oil? Well, not many people. So it’s a good thing that Boots took the moisturising benefits of brazil nut oil, but opted for a fragrance that is sweeter and even more delicious than its vanilla or chocolate body butters.

I really love this body butter; it’s an excellent moisturiser that doesn’t stick to clothes. I also love to use it on my hands, especially in winter, because this butter is so much more moisturising than any regular hand cream. So would I recommend this body butter to a friend? You bet!

Boots Extracts Brazil Nut body butter is available as 200 ml for £6 in Boots stores or online. Boots also does a body wash, a body scrub and a body lotion with the same irresistible fragrance.
