I tried a few products from the new YourGoodSkin range by Boots over 28 days in November through December. YourGoodSkin is a brand new skincare range developed by a team of leading dermatologists to restore your skin’s natural balance. Powered by a unique antioxidant complex of Green Tea and Vitamin C, it gently works to visibly improve the health of your skin in just 28 days of its natural cycle. A lot of the products have been co-created with feedback from normal women and I find that really exciting. The last time Boots introduced a brand was when Origins was launched so I was intrigued at what type of products they would be.
The products I tried out were:
Oil Lifting Make-Up Remover Wipes to cleanse,
Pore Minimising Tonic as a toner,
Balancing Skin Concentrate to moisturise, and as a serum.
I was away on holiday to Scotland, and wasn’t able to post the review immediately. So without further ado here we go.
I was really excited to try this restoring serum as I’d read quite a few positive reviews and it was meant to be suitable for all skin types! It is ‘designed to improve the 5 key signs of healthy looking skin; skin texture, skin tone evenness, radiance, moisture levels & oiliness’.
As soon as I used this my skin felt like as if it had been re-hydrated. Within two days of using it twice a day it was feeling softer to touch. Honestly it was hard to believe that I could get these results so quickly. My facial skin tends to be rather rough in places, as I have to use very light moisturisers/scrubs because of my temperamental sensitive skin . I get serious envy when, y’know, do those air-kisses muah muah/hugs (as you do ala Asian/Arab) and you feel your friend’s softer than a baby’s bottom cheek on yours, and you wonder how is that even possible? Well, now I know how.
Alas my bliss wasn’t meant to last, after a few days during the first week I had bit of a breakout and became worried about continuing using the serum, in case I was allergic to it. I contacted the YourGoodSkin support forum (which I had joined as part of the challenge) and found it was common to break out during the first week as this adapt and purges the impurities from the deeper layers. I was relieved that I wasn’t the only and decided to persevere although I do admit I was nervous about breaking out more.
Thankfully, by the next week my skin was no longer sprouting pimples like a teenager. By week 3, my complexion was notably brighter and no longer dull, even my mom commented on it (she’s usually on my case because of my skin suggesting masks etc). By the end of the challenge my skin texture had improved despite the biting winter weather we’d been having.
I love using this product as it absorbs in my skin easily and I actually use any extra product on my hand for a softening and smoothing effect. Due to my blemish prone combination sensitive skin I tend to struggle with finding skin products suitable for me but the Balancing Skin Concentrate is a keeper!
I just saw that that they have a money back guarantee try it for 28 days and if your skin doesn’t improve you can get your money back! That’s quite an offer so ladies I would definitely suggest you try it out for your softest smoothest skin ever.
Repeat buy: Yessssss!
