Botanics Botanics Shine Away Mattifying Cleansing Mousse Review

Thursday, 18 July 2013


Hello! This is a review for Botanics Botanics Shine Away Mattifying Cleansing Mousse from Boots. I bought this with a Boots coupon which gave 20% off any Botanics products. As I have used the clay mask from the Botanics line before, I decided to try something new and see if it matches the standards of the clay mask.

First impressions of this cleaning mousse? The packaging is nice and the dispenser pumped foam easily. I used it with my ToiletTree facial cleanser. When it got on my face...I wasn't so keen. It had the worst smell ever. It smelt like lemons - but lemons gone bad or citrus. It says on the bottle there is willowbark - maybe this is how willowbark and citrus smells like? Anyway, it wasn't too pleasant.

After using it, it left my face quite smooth. However, I can still smell a light trace of the scent still on my face despite having splashed cold water on afterwards. It claims to mattify the face - after using this product, it didn't make my skin feel too tight or dry but I think you know how I will conclude this review...that's right. I'm not going to use this product again because of the scent inside the bottle. I'll be sticking with my Vichy Normaderm facial cleanser instead, which has the best scent ever!
