“ Brand: Boots / Type: Body Milk „
When it comes to purchasing body lotions and creams I simply can't resist buying them with the really good intention of using them and buffing up my skin to the best I can get it. However like many of you reading this review I will purchase something with like I say the very best of intentions and then ending up using it once or twice and then it gets bunged in a drawer or something and eventually forgotten about! I spotted this Boots Botanics Cooling Body Milk costing £5.00 a bottle (in Boots) and as I've had a little bit of dry skin on my body lately I decided to purchase it and I thought a light looking body milk may be just the job! The Packaging: 250ml see-through plastic bottle which has a see through push button sprayer to the top of it and an olive green label around the middle of it. On the front of the bottle I'm told it is Body Botanics, The Pure Power Of Plants, Cooling Body Milk, 'With skin softening Jojoba and skin soothing Lemon Peel. Leaves skin feeling soft and moisturised'. On the back of the bottle other information given includes being told a bit about the product, directions for use are given, ingredients are listed, the size is stated (as I've listed already) and contact details for Boots are given. It's a nice and easy to use bottle and it is informative enough too. A Bit About The Product According To The Bottle: If plant extracts are pure enough and at the right levels they can provide significant health and beauty benefits, Botanics formulations use the purest extracts at levels that real work. Benefits: Botanics Cooling Body Milk hydrates and revitalises the skin, helping to soften and smooth even the driest areas. Jojoba Oil softens the skin and Lemon peel extract helps to soothe the skin. Using It: Well this is truly a lovely body milk that I'm sure would suit everybody including the male of the species if they want to use it! It sprays out of the bottle with ease and is basically a milky looking liquid being white and rather thin but having a little body to it. The body milk itself has a very light and crisp aroma to it that is none distinctive in fragrance really. It's a little naturally sweet and there is a tiny hint of citrus to it I guess but it has a smooth and fresh smell that isn't too heavy and once applied on the skin you can barely smell it anyway. So it sprays onto the skin as a white liquid and you gently and lightly sweep it on. It absorbs really easily into the skin and within about a minute your ready to dress over the top of this if need be. This is lightly hydrating and gives the skin a little bit of a sheen to it. Its not irritating on the skin at all or heavy or sticky and it is so simple to apply and the skin reaps the benefits and guzzles it in. I like the way this hydrates the skin from the inside out type of thing. Suitable for all skin types apart from incredibly dry and flaky skin this is a very simple to use body milk and I really love this one! Although it's described as a cooling body milk it only is when you apply it to the skin and before you massage it into the skin and not in any other way so don't worry about using this in the wintertime! Overall: An easy to use, nicely fragranced body milk that is suitable to use as often as you like in a day, week whatever. It is light and absorbs quickly and really does give the skin a sort of elasticity feeling and a nice smooth look to it. I'm a big fan of this and will certainly buy this time and again however one bottle of this really does go a long way as one spray goes a long way so it's an economical product too! Only available in Boots stores!
