No.7 Soft & Soothed Gentle Toner
Hey everyone :). A little while ago I bought a couple of things from No.7 by Boots because they were giving out those £5 off skincare vouchers. I wouldn’t normally go for this brand and I only tried these out because I can’t resist a good voucher! The first thing I bought was this toner because my usual Garnier one had run out. It looks nice and feminine because the liquid is a pale pink colour. I use it straight after cleansing as that is the ideal time, and the general idea is that it soothes the skin after the cleanser has removed your make up. This definitely does feel lovely and refreshing, but in comparison with my Garnier toner which I love, it doesn’t really feel like it does anything, it’s kind of just like wiping some water over your face.
I will keep using this until it’s gone, but I won’t be repurchasing because for the money it would cost without a voucher, I don’t think it is any better than the one I usually get that is also cheaper!
No.7 Beautiful Skin Overnight Revitalising Eye Balm
I bought this product with my other voucher because I don’t have an eye cream, even though I despair about under my eyes on a regular basis. Since I heard that Jennifer Anniston does it, I have been putting Vaseline under my eyes every night! But I thought I would give this a go, as it claims to reduce dark circles and puffiness. My problem is definitely dark circles rather than puffiness, so I’ve been using it every night for nearly two weeks now. It is gel like in texture and it sinks in really quickly which is good as it means no laying awkwardly in bed making sure you don’t lay on it and rub it off! It kind of does feel like it is doing something when you put it on, and in the last few days I think I have noticed a small reduction in the darkness of my under eye area. Obviously it is no miracle cure! I still have to use cover up and everything, but as far as I know no product actually gets rid of them altogether or else I would be rushing out to get it straight away! Again, I don’t think I will repurchase this once it has run out, I will probably look around for something else, but I do think it is a generally good product.
