I’ve always been a loyal fan of Boots so when they started a dupe range for The Ordinary, I knew I had to try it. The Ordinary is an affordable skincare range but I’ve noticed sometimes it’s hard to get ahold of. I have used Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel since I started developing a skincare routine so moving on to a new range from the same brand has been an easy transition.
Boots Ingredients promise to find the recipe for your skin, plus all the products in this range are cruelty free and vegan. I bought skincare staples like toner and moisturiser and some new products to try out.
All the serums are plant-derived helping hydrate all skin types, making skin look brighter and moisturised. I use the hyaluronic acid, salicylic acid and retinol serums. I wasn’t aware of serums and oils when I was younger, I think like most people I wanted to research into their benefits before jumping straight in with a random one.
These serums are gentle on your face and surprisingly smell good, I’ve noticed most skincare products have a scent of talcum powder and that’s not very appealing to me. I use hyaluronic acid day and night, paired with the salicylic on a morning and retinol on the evenings.

These are also two products I’d never used before, I only introduced them into my routine when I started to use Pixi Beauty. Personally, not just with this range but others, I can’t see a difference to my skin. It might be me using it wrong but I’ve been following the instructions, I’ll still keep it in my routine.
I like the way it gives my skin a fresh and, funnily enough, cleansed feeling. A small amount goes a long way as well so these products are cheap and last a couple of months too.

I love a good face mask. They get rid of all the nasties on your skin after a long day of work, especially with the mask wearing too. I’ve started getting the worst maskne, resulting to using this mask every two days to unclog my pores.
When I shopped for my products, my Boots didn’t have the other moisturisers in stock, just the multi-biotic. I’m up for trying the other two to see if there’s any difference in reducing my blemishes. My skin feels really smooth after using these products. I’m really impressed with all the products so a future investment will be on the cards.
