Dr Botanicals | First Impressions

Dr Botanicals first impressions
Hi Lovelies 
With Christmas around the corner, skincare can be the last things on our minds, I know it can with me because all I am thinking about is last minute Christmas presents and also the preparation for Christmas too, it can all get a bit hectic. For me personally I like to have a little skincare regime; one for the morning and also one for last thing at night, that way it helps keep my skin soft and hydrated during the autumn and winter months more easily. 

Dr Botanicals is a premium brand I recently discovered online and it is a brand that was founded in London and sells lots of products such as; Serums, Moisturisers and Cleansers. They are a beauty company with a difference who make 100% natural skincare products out of the science of plants. The brand is also cruelty free and contain no harmful preservatives. 

dr botanicals first impressions

Japanese Orange Superfood Facial Oil
I just love using facial oils and serums and honestly using this one was heavenly for so many reasons! First reason is the smell is just divine, as soon as you can smell fresh oranges and honestly its just so refreshing once it goes onto your skin. It has a little top that you squeeze onto skin that just gives you drops at a time, so you can't get too much of this by accident just the right amount. I use about 4 or 5 drops with this to cover my face and neck just before I put a moisturiser on or my makeup

This oil is recommend for people with dry, damaged skin or just for wanting to pamper themselves, because at the end of the day we all deserved to be pampered. My skin is combination skin and this has worked perfectly for me. This oil has key ingredients of this are Rose Otto Oil which contains high levels of vitamin A and C. It also has Neroli oil and also Seabuckthorn fruit oil which is high in vitamins A, C and E also essential fatty acids.

Japanese Orange Vitamin C Repairing Night Moisturiser
Night creams can be so heavenly and this one is for sure. This cream is very thick and creamy, it applies to skin effortlessly and was non greasy too. As with the facial oil this smelled like zesty oranges too and was equally as refreshing. I put around 2 almond size amounts on my face for complete face and neck coverage. I put this moisturiser on just before I go to bed, it is a bit thicker than a day time moisturiser but it helps with skin hydration for the following morning.

This moisturiser is recommend for people with dry sensitive skin and you will guess what I am going to say next... if you want a pamper just go for it. The key ingredients in this are seabuckhorn fruit oil which helps promote skin hydration and calm sensitive skin. Another is coconut oil which help dry and sensitive skin and also  tiare flower which helps with hydration 

  • 100% Natural Ingredients 
  • Parben and harmful preservative free
  • Hydration
  • Works well on my combination skin, especially the dry patches

  • None
