Boots Botanics Men’s Range Reviews

It is often the case that when we are looking for a little pampering we forget that the men in our life might quite like a little looking after too. As a follow up to the products we suggested from Boots for Father’s day Toby’s daddy (and I to be honest) have been trying out a few of the products form the Boots Botanics for Men range.

Toby’s daddy is not one for using products other than your standard shower gel and deodorant and the odd bit of moisturiser if he is feeling extremely dry so it was not easy convincing him to give these a go but in the name of science (well, not exactly – more in the name of persuasion) he tried them out for us.

Boots Botanics Men’s Anti Ageing Moisturiser RRP £5.60 http://www.boots.com/en/Botanics-Mens-Anti-ageing-Moisturiser-SPF-15_33339/

Daddy doesn’t regularly use a moisturiser but I managed to convince him to try this out while we were on holiday as it has a built in SPF. He is not yet in need of an anti ageiing product but as with most things prevention is better than cure! The moisturiser was a nice light cream that didn’t have much of a smell. It absorbed quickly and left his skin feeling a little softer than normal. It didn’t cause congestion and didn’t make his face look greasy.

Although this is a nice cream the results weren’t amazing enough for Daddy to bother to continue to use it! Although he may think differently when he starts to spot some wrinkles!

Boots Botanics for Men Face Wash RRP £4.60 for 150ml http://www.boots.com/en/Botanics-For-Men-Face-Wash-Normal-and-Dry-Skin-150ml_33297/

A face wash is something that Daddy was more likely to use – I stuck it in the shower and instructed him to use it a few times. Although he usually forgot as he would normally just use the shower gel he did give it a go. The face wash had a lovely clean smell that although it wasn’t a particularly masculine smell, definitely wasn’t a feminine smell. The cleanser had an almost gel like consistency and felt nice to use. It didn’t leave Daddy’s skin feeling as dry as usual and didn’t cause any irritation either.

On the whole this was a nice product and it has stayed in the bathroom (which is a good sign) and does appear to be being used regularly so that’s a definite thumbs up!
