  • Boots has launch a brand new ingredient-led collection that is set to rival the likes of The Ordinary.

    The Ordinary transformed the beauty industry when they started selling active ingredients for your skin at very affordable prices back in 2016.

    Their popularity – and of similar brands like The Inkey List – has exponentially grown since then, and now our favourite Boots is following their lead.

    The retailer’s new Ingredients collections features eight different products, from a moisturiser to gycolic acid toner, promising to cover all steps in your skincare routine – and they’re all under £7.50!
