I was fortunate to be sent two products from [M] Botanicals which were the Gentle Enzyme Cleansing Powder and a small bottle of the Rejuvenating Facial Elixir and I have been using them for a few days now and already I love them.
[M] Botanicals is a vegan brand that uses plant-based products to help the skin. They do a lot of research and test a lot of ingredients for their products. I think this is going to be one of my favourite brands! I love these products already and am ready to buy all the others!
Although I was sent these items, my opinion is my own and honest.
Gentle Enzyme Cleansing Powder
I have tried clay masks before but when I looked at this online, I was struck that it was a powder that you mix with warm water and clean your face with. I have never seen anything like this before.
When mixing it in, I added too much water aka I had to add much more powder and after a few tries the last few nights, I have mastered 2 parts powder, 1 part water, it is meant to be a paste which I am all for. The smell of the powder is a very strong Chamomile smell and I mean strong.
This cleanser has ripped my routine to shreds! It cleaned my face really well (I looked like an Oompah Loompa at one point) and as I am prone to redness and breakouts, it really helps to combat those. I did get a little redness when using this but I think it may have been because it’s a new product on my skin? It hasn’t come back the last few times I have used the cleanser so I am guessing my skin was adjusting to its new routine!
It is a bit on the pricey side at £25 but you do get a lot of powder, 80g to be exact and you don’t need much for one application, a teaspoon or two at most. I think for how well it does and the amount you get, this is an investment worth looking at. For those with breakouts, I do recommend this! I haven’t felt bumps on my face for a few days now and my skin feels really fresh and clean after using this!
Rejuvenating Facial Elixir
I have never used a facial elixir at all so I was excited to try this! I was sent a sample size but the normal size is £32 which I think is a massive price for an elixir but at the same time, I see why. For £32 you get, 30ml of product which isn’t too little of the product but I would have liked to see like 35/40ml but this does wonders when you leave it on overnight.
I have a naturally oily face and it mostly is around my nose and forehead. I was a bit hesitant to put this on because I didn’t want to add to the oils already there. I dove in any way and massaged some into my skin after using the cleanser above and it felt like heaven.
I slept with this on and didn’t wash it off till I washed my face into the morning. My face had become softer overnight and it made my face glow more. I have nearly run out of this already because I need that glow to cover up my tired face!
Overall, these both are pricey but if you need a skin boost from natural ingredients then choose [M] Botanicals! I already love these products and they are helping my skin so much!
Thank you to [M] Botanicals for sending me these two wonderful products! Again, I was sent these products but my opinion and views are all my own. This post was not sponsored.
