Dr Botanicals Skincare

Hey guys,

For the last month I've been busy testing a new moisturiser and facial oil by the brand dr botanicals.



This brand is all about those plant based ingredients plus they are vegan, cruelty free and boast some pretty impressive claims that will make all the difference to your skin.

I've been using the Anti-Oxidising Daily Radiance Moisturiser and Neroli Restoring Facial Oil. 




First off the packaging is very sleek and classy. It's basic but effective. It gives the overall vibe of a luxury item and the bottles are sturdy. No cheap flimsy jars here! 

The Anti-Oxidising day cream had a gel/cream hybrid texture. Think of a water based product and you'll understand what I mean. It was lovely in the skin and soaked it practically straight away!

One thing I did notice is that it left a kind of matte finish to my skin. Normally after moisturising I get a dewy finish till its soaked into my skin so it was surprising how this didn't.
This isn't a bad thing per se but something I wanted to mention.
I found after daily use my skin started to look brighter, although it wasn't the best on my dry patches, I still love the overall look of my skin.

The Neroli facial oil was unlike any oil I've used! I'm a big fan of adding oil to my moisturiser or foundation. Again as I'm suffering with random dry patches I find oils can add that bit of deeper hydration and also make up application is smoother.

This oil was lovely, I used this first then applied the moisturiser once it had sank into the skin.
It did make my skin look plump and lifted so it's a winner for me. I will note that this left a slight tacky feel to my skin so I would recommend using a cream after. 
  
These two together worked great. They perked up my lacklustre skin tone and played well when I wore makeup. Also they will last you a while especially the oil as you only need a few drops.




I'd say these particular products would be good for those with combo/oily skin as my dry patches didn't improve much.

I love how natural these are as well, it's so important to have a good skincare regime especially with weather changes and just day to day getting older.

We can buy all the expensive foundations we want but if we neglect our skin at a base level, it doesn't make a difference how much we spend on makeup. 

Want to try this brand? Check them out on LookFantastic and let me know what you think!

Much Love,

*these items were gifted to me but NOT by lookfantastic. They are just the easiest place I could find who stock dr botanicals but feel free to google other stockists. As always all opinions are my own and I'm 100% honest.
