The Boots No.7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Lotion and Night Cream is supposed to be a two step night regimen to replace everything you've done before. These two in particular are part of the Normal/Dry skin line, which I don't typically seek out with my combination skin. But, I received these in my latest Beauty VoxBox, so I thought I would give them a shot.
On their website, Infuenster says this about the Beautiful Skin Cleaning Lotions:
The first step to beautiful skin is clean skin. All Beautiful Skin cleansers quickly and gently remove all traces of dirt and impurities, leaving you with perfectly clean, healthy skin. Skin is so effectively cleansed that there is no need for a separate toner.
While it definitely cleansed my face thoroughly, it left something to be desired in the eye area. It's a very gentle cleanser so those with sensitive skin should be safe, and I didn't notice any breakouts - even with my combination skin. Still, it's not completely a two-step cleansing process when you need to come in with bigger guns to finish off eye makeup removal.
When it comes to the Night Cream, Influenster said:
Rest easy throughout the night knowing that your skin is getting the best possible care with this luxuriously rich night cream for all night moisturization, includes Cocoa butter for an additional boost. A nourishing cream with Glycerin and Shea Butter to energize and promote optimum hydration while you sleep. Designed to work in harmony with your skin, replacing lost moisture and leaving you with healthy looking radiant skin.
While this moisturizer didn't break me out, it didn't keep my T-Zone shine free as so many moisturizers that are meant for combination skin do. This doesn't say as much about the efficacy of the products as it does my incompatibility with it. It feels smooth and left my sin supple feeling, but it is relatively fragranced so those who are sensitive to that will want to be aware.
Overall, it seems like it could be a good duo for sensitive, normal/dry skin. While I had problem with eye makeup removal, others who wear less makeup (or don't cement it down with primer, like I do) might find it works well as a two-step regimen.
