Boots Botanics Hair Mask Review

Hello dear people! Hope you had a great Valentine day!

So this week it is about the Boots Botanics Moisturising Hair Mask With White Quinoa. Boots is one of my favorite brands. Their products usually work well with my skin and hair. As I have said before I am very selective about my hair products but still I usually like to experiment with new Boots products.

What attracted me to the Hair Mask is that masks unlike conditioners are designed to be absorbed by the hair. While conditioners do a very good job in giving a shiny finish to the hair by restoring oil to the shaft of the hair, hair masks penetrate the cuticle and strengthens the inside of the hair.

One reason why I don’t think this is entirely synthetic is because unlike a conditioner that tends to stay on like a white layer, this cream seems to absorb right into the hair, no matter how much you apply! Perhaps that is why using the mask didn’t give my hair that instant volume and shine but it looks fuller after two days of use. Perhaps it is common for all non-cosmetic stuff to enrich after a length of time instead of immediate results.

It is also mentioned on the pack that the hair mask contains white quinoa. This is the nutritional value packed in white quinoa,

Quinoa contains iron, B-vitamins, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, vitamin E and fiber. It is one of only a few plant foods that are considered a complete protein and comprised of all pernine essential amino acids.”

I will be using the entire tube to give a final word on the product and will post my thoughts here again.

Boots Shea Butter Review

Boots Shea body butter review

As I have said many times before, Boots is one of my favourite brands in skin care. But I  haven’t spoken about a brand i discovered about a year ago. But as winter is at the horizon this is the best time to introduce it.

My skin is minimal care type year around however it turns into a biscuit texture as soon as there is a nip in the air. So I was looking for something natural and deep moisturising. But I was in for a surprise when I discovered pure Shea body butter in the Boots range.

As you might already know that Shea butter is known as one the most moisturising natural ingredients available to us. This is one of Africa’s best kept secret since Africans have been extracting the fruit and using it for skin care since ages. Of course not many of us buy this extracted goodness in its crude natural form, we can buy it through a few brands that make it available.

So I tried this and it is definitely up there on the top in my most preferred skin care product. I used it during the winter on my dry skin, and my skin shed like that of a snake! Lol!

But really it is like having a new skin that looks all moisturised and soft. The one thing I wanted is for the body butter to not have a fragrance at all but guessing that it is Shea butter which is bitter in taste as well as smell. However the fragrance might cloak the bitter smell but it still tastes bitter so don’t use it as a lip balm but you can use it for skin care as much as you want.
