I will start by saying that I think the Botanics Hydrating Creams are really good – I was definitely pleasantly surprised! The packaging says they contain “brightening hibiscus” and I have to say, my skin did look a little brighter. Maybe it’s the hibiscus, maybe it’s because my skin is well moisturised. Maybe it’s both!
I used the night cream to begin with. At first I was a little put off by the scent. It is very light but I just didn’t like it. Luckily I couldn’t smell it for long. The cream is thick enough to keep my skin moisturised but not so thick that my pores feel clogged. I quite enjoyed massaging it into my face every night.
The day cream smells a little different but again, the scent is very light. It has an SPF in it which normally makes the texture uncomfortable for me but this stays light and non-sticky. The day cream is a little lighter in texture than the night cream.
As far as I can tell, these creams deliver on their claims of being hydrating and brightening. They are good value for money and I would repurchase them.
