Boots Glycerin and Rosewater


Boots Glycerin and Rosewater

Bit of a negative post today but I thought I'd update you all about a product I purchased a few weeks ago. I posted about my Boots haul (see here) recently where I went a little mental buying things (as us girls do!) and was so excited to try this out, with it being cheap and cheerful and me needing a new cleanser/toner. I was so disappointed upon using this as I expected so much more. Firstly, let me tell you about the smell. It's awful!! Maybe it's one of those scents that some will like but urgh I just can't stomach using it on my face it's that bad! It's very very watery, obviously but it didn't get rid of makeup, it didn't really do much if I'm honest. Sure, it was only £2.54 but I was hoping it would replace my expensive Bioderma cleanser, that won't be happening!

So if you're looking for a new cleanser and see this, maybe it will work for you but I just can't get over the smell! I also have another review coming up about the Rosewater Toning Spritz from the same haul - which is pretty nice! So stay tuned for that.

Do you have any recommendations of cleansers to replace the trusty, yet expensive Bioderma?

  2. I thought it was meant to be more of a toner anyway? Like used after make up removal but before moisturising?

  3. it's very vintage-y, that's the main reason I chose it but ah well. Was only a few £! x
