Boots No7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Lotion Normal/Dry Review

Hello my lovelies! Today I’m going to be reviewing my new cleanser which I brought a few months back from boots. Having never tried a no7 skin care product before I didn’t really know what to expect but I had already heard some great reviews on the new beautiful skin range from a few youtubers. So, in desperate need of a new cleanser I snapped up the cleansing lotion for normal/dry skin, hoping for the best! The cleanser comes in a range of different skin types, so there is something for everyone.

 Packaging;

You get a huge 200ml bottle, which sadly doesn’t fit into my skin care shelf so it has to lye on its side. Apart from that it is quiet chic and “nice” looking in my opinion, with a see through bottle so you can see how much you have left and a simple lilac and cream pump. The packaging really helps to correspond with what the product is actually all about, “1 simple step to perfectly clean, supple skin.” One thing I didn’t like about the packaging was it came with no lid but one of those fiddly tops that you turn to lock. I find with literally every no7 product you always have a massive long essay on the back about it, which obviously shows how much they believe their products work! However, I do like the extra information it provides unlike other cleansers.

Pros;

  • The product itself takes off makeup really well and as promised , “1 easy step.” I don’t have to fuss with eye makeup remover or a wipe, this does the job perfectly!
  • It also has a very clean fresh scent that isn’t too strong which is perfect for my sensitive skin! Furthermore, I'm not really one for putting something smelly on my face anyway – it just puts me off.
  • This one could be debatable but the texture of the product is really thick and creamy which I like as I feel like it nourishes my dry skin and helps to hydrate it. Some people could find it too heavy but the cleanser comes in a range of skin types as mentioned earlier so I can see why this is targeted more towards the drier skin types.
  • You get what you pay for and more! The product does what it promises yet you still get a great cleanser for how much you paid! I'm surprised this isn’t in the £15-£20 mark!
  • It doesn't feel oily or greasy on your skin after.
Cons;

  • Theres not many so I'm going to be a bit fussy and moan about the lid!
  • I find the product to be not very concentrated and you need a lot for your whole face. I usually use 5+ pumps of it which doesn’t sound like a lot but covers the whole cotton face pad.
