Boots has got beauty fans raving about one of their budget skincare favourites.
The high-street store has always been a haven of beauty products for us Brits, stocking everything from the most basic essentials like Nivea and Vaseline to high-end products like Chanel and Dior and everything in between.
Not to mention their home-grown brand No7, which has gained cult following since it expanded back in 2007.
But the latest product to get customers excited comes from their humble name brand line.
Beauty fans have been loving the store’s Cucumber Clay Mask for its ability to clear pores and eliminate shine without drying out skin.
With Kaolin clay to draw out impurities and get rid of excess oil and cucumber to cool and hydrate, the three-minute mask, which the retailer has branded as a ‘3 minute wonder’, leaves users with a plump and refreshed complexion.
And fans have been raving about the ‘amazing’ mask that has been said to banish oil to unveil a healthy glow, with the product raking up dozens of five-star reviews.
‘Life saver,’ wrote one fan. ‘I’ve been using this recently when ever I have a break out and it does wonders. I had a really painful breakout on my jaw line and put it on that area and slept with it. When I woke up the inflammation had gone and the spots are dried out and hardly noticeable.’
‘My new go to face mask,’ added another. ‘Its a smooth formula that is easy to apply. smells fresh and clean which is quite soothing. I have dry skin and my skin is so silky smooth after I use this.’
‘My go to refresher,’ wrote another fan. ‘This is the only thing that helps with my oily skin! And my skin feels so soft afterwards, you can see the change immediately after use. I can tell the difference when I don’t use this for a while as my face looks so dull even if I continue with all other products in my face routine - and it costs nothing! There are more expensive masks that don’t do what this one does. Highly recommended!!’.
‘Amazing stuff!’ raved another. ‘Love love love this mask, superb quality for its price. Leave skin feeling soft, moisturised, without stripping out all the oils of the skin. For this price, you simply cannot go wrong, do not hesitate in buying it!’.
The ‘life saving’ mask will set back only £1.50 and if you want to stock up it’ll save you even more as it’s currently part of a 3 for £3 deal.
Not bad for a ‘3 minute wonder’.
Aleesha is digital shopping writer at woman&home - so whether you're looking for beauty, fashion, health or home buys, she knows all the best places to splash your cash. She earned an MA in Magazine Journalism from City, University of London in 2017 after graduating from University of Leeds in 2014 with a BA in English and Spanish (which took her to Madrid for a fun Rioja and tapas-packed year). Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.
Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).
But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.
When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
