Botanics Invigorating Face Scrub

I’m no expert in skincare, and I’d been looking for an exfoliator for a while but didn’t know where to start. I was browsing Boots and this caught my eye, I’d tried some stuff from Botanics before so I picked this up to try. For around £2 you can’t go wrong anyway. 

There are definitely pros and cons to this product, but I can’t complain too much for a small price tag. First of all, lets start with the positives. The smell of this is so lovely, as it should as its part of the botanics range. It smells fresh and slightly floral. It claims to instantly mattify the skin, which I must say I did notice once I’d washed this off, there was minimal shine on my face which is such a plus as I have terribly oily skin. It really lives up to what it says it does, and I think it helps tone down the oiliness in my skin for a short period of time. However, the negatives to the product. It does say ‘invigorating face scrub’, and when it says invigorating there is no lie there. It was really quite harsh on my skin, it almost felt like it was scratching my skin with the small exfoliating beads. Which was actually quite uncomfortable. It was just a bit too harsh for my liking, however I liked that it made my skin feel smooth after washing off so I might just be able to bare the painful scratchy feeling. 

Have you tried anything from the botanics range?
