Boots Glow Skincare Review

Boots Glow Skincare Review

Over the past few years Skincare has taken prime position in my daily beauty routine from makeup remover to SPF and everything in between. 

I love a good regime that helps me to achieve radiant, glowing skin, so I was super excited when I spotted Boots were releasing their own brand skincare range and it was going to be… Affordable! 

Boots GLOW

At the start of 2020 Boots released a new skincare range called GLOW. A range consisting of 8 products, packaged in pretty pink bottles, white caps and rose gold lettering. Formulated to promote radiant, glowing skin, the GLOW range is easy to use and travel size friendly. 

The range includes 2 Cleansers, Toner, Serum/Essence, Eye Cream, Moisturiser, Gel Mask and Hydrating Mist. 

The Products

Glow Cleansing Stick – “Cleansing stick melts away makeup and nourishes and hydrates skin, to give a healthy looking glow.”

Apply in circular motions straight to the face, splash water over the face and massage with fingers in a circular motion to breakdown any makeup and dirt.

Glow Cleansing Oil – “Cleanses away pore clogging dirt and removes makeup, to leave skin looking brighter and more radiant.”

Apply to a cotton pad and sweep across the face to breakdown makeup and dirt, rinse with water and pat dry. 

Glow Radiance Tonic – “Clarifies the complexion and smoothes skin to give  a healthy looking glow.”

After cleansing, apply to a cotton pad and sweep across the face. 

Glow Essence – “Energises, hydrates and refreshes skin, to leave skin looking brighter and feeling plumped with moisture.”

Apply 2-3 drops to cleansed, toned skin before moisturiser.

Glow Eye Cream – “Refreshes and rehydrates, whilst also soothing skin around the eyes, for revitalised, brighter looking skin.”

Massage a small amount of cream into skin around eyes. 

Glow Moisturising Cream – “Hydrates, brightens and smooths skin giving a glowing complexion, to prep skin for the day ahead.”

Use as daily moisturiser, day and night, massage into skin until absorbed. 

Glow Gel Mask – “Works to intensely moisturise, giving you brighter and more radiant looking skin.”

Apply a thick layer to the skin, leave for 15-20 mins and then wash off. Use 2-3 times per week. 

Glow Brightening Mist – “Microfine mist refreshes and brightens skin tone, leaving it feeling hydrated and looking radiant. 

Use as a Morning Wake-Up Boost or Afternoon Hydrating Fix. 

The Review

This entire range smells incredible! I think the products are Watermelon scented, and the moment you open them you’re transported to a gloriously sunny tropical island. 

Not a single product feels harsh on the skin, in fact every product is a joy to use and I look forward to taking my makeup off each night. The double cleanse process helps to remove any stubborn makeup, and although it’s not a recommended step, I do prefer to clean any excess cleansing product off my face using a damp muslin cloth before patting the skin dry. 

My favourite step has got to be the Essence, it is like a thick gel like consistency that instantly brightens the complexion and makes the skin feel super soft. 

Since I started using the Boots Glow range back in March as part of my daily skincare routine I have noticed only positive effects, the area’s that can tend to feel dry or by midday look excessively oily, feel hydrated and nourished and the natural oils of the skin are balanced so no signs of an oily complexion, I’ve also noticed that I haven’t suffered a single breakout since using the range. 

But the best part about all of this is that each product only costs £4! Yes £4. Bargain!!
