Botanics Microdermabrasion Polish

I've been meaning to post about this bad boy for absolutely ages now. I actually got it waaaay back in February when I was staying in London, after searching for months in my local Boots hunting it out, where I always found it sold out (boo hiss boo). I'd seen a few rave reviews on it and knew it sounded just up my street so wouldn't rest until I got it. So there I was, shopping list in hand, when I found it in one of the Boots on Oxford Street on offer for around half price. I quickly snapped it up (and now I'm wishing I'd bought two). 

The words 'microdermabrasion' never fail to get me excited. I'm always looking out for new exfoliators or products that will encourage skin renewal and buff away old skin cells. This does just that. For a minuscule price, I have to say this is the best exfoliator I've ever used. Whereas most exfoliators are quite chunky, this one is really fine and gritty, meaning it gets deep down into your pores and really gets rid of any impurities, whilst leaving your skin feeling SO smooth and incredibly radiant and glowing. 

As soon as I started using this, I saw a reduction in blackheads, and my pores looked seriously minimised. I use this once a week and I honestly don't know what I've been doing without it. If you're looking for a good exfoliator for really renewing the skin and getting rid of blackheads, then this is for you. 

I really can't fault the Boots Botanics range at all. Do you have any favourites from Botanics?


  1. this sounds great, glad it's worked for you so well! it sounds very similar to a home-made exfoliator i currently use... bicarbonate of soda! it's actually better than anything ive ever bought! really gentle and gritty but leaves my skin cleaner than it's ever felt. and it costs 99p!

  2. I haven't tried any of the products! But I certainly will be, actually I have to pop to boots tomorrow... Happy face!

  3. Generally I've never gotten along with the Boots Botanics range, but I adore exfoliators and you've made this sound amazing. I might have to give it a go... xo

  4. Sounds amazing! I love this range! :) x

  5. You've sold this to me haha, I like a few other bits from the Botanics range as they don't irritate my skin, so may have to give this a whirl too! x

  6. This sounds amazing! I love the Botanics BB Cream, I reviewed it back in May and I absolutely love it!

  7. I'm thinking of trying the boots tea tree and witch hazel skincare range as I have horribly spot-prone skin but I'm not sure if it's worth paying more for a better product? Is there anything you recommend? X

  8. I loved this product as reminds me of the Dr Brandt microdembrasion but at a fraction of the price! ;)

  9. I would love to give microdermabrasion a bash sometime. I've seen some pretty good deals a few times, I should bit the bullet next time! microdermabrasion.

  10. You've sold this to me haha, I like a few other bits from the Botanics range as they don't irritate my skin, so may have to give this a whirl too!
