Boots Botanics Hydration Burst Dual Action Cleanser Review

I'm really excited to share this review with you, as I think I'm one of the first to talk about this product. I saw this cleanser for the first time on the Boots shelf a few weeks ago, and chucked it straight into my basket. The gel to oil-non drying claim is what caught my attention. I've tested it out and I have to say, I'm impressed. 



The cleanser comes in a tall plastic bottle. It's quite cute. Not bad for travel, if you have space.
Price - £5.99 for 125ml - I bought it on sale for £2.99!
Texture - Thick, oily gel
Finish - Fresh, smooth, clean skin

What they say
Gently lifts away impurities and removes make up with soothing Clary Sage for dehydrated and sensitive skin

Key ingredients
Clary Sage - Antiseptic, antibacterial, calms and soothes skin
Olive Fruit Oil - Rich in essential fatty acids
Jojoba Oil - Moisturises without clogging pores

What is it
This cleanser effectively purifies the skin whilst hydrating and calming at the same time. It starts as a thick gel which warms into an oil. It has a really nice fresh scent, (reminds me of the St Tropez In Shower Gradual Tan - not sure why). Suitable for all skin types, especially good for dry, dehydrated skin.
( the gel to oil is similar to Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel)








( thick gel)



(oil)



How I use it
I take a good 10p blob and massage it well over the face, neck and eyes. It's great for AM/PM, I like both. This again is a cleanser I prefer to use on bare skin, if you want to use it for your first cleanse/makeup removal, you can do. I work it all over and remove with a hot flannel. My skin is super clean without being stripped or dry. There's also a bit of a trick to this cleanser. Once you start to warm the gel, it starts to get really thick and almost stick your hands together. When it starts to get thicker, keep warming it between your hands, and it will melt into a lovely soft oil. Strange I know. It's not for those who like 'milk' or light cleansers, but if you like heavy duty gels/balms, this is great. 

Pros
- Great ingredients
- So affordable
- Huge size
- Convenient packaging
- Good texture that removes everything
- Nice fresh scent
- Will last a long time

Cons
- None

Summary
What an amazing find! I cannot fault this cleanser at all, especially at that price! Non drying cleansers are a rarity in the drugstore/highstreet, but Boots Botanics have definitely picked up on the fact, we don't want bubbly foaming products anymore! We want nourishment and grease! In a good way obviously. I will definitely be checking out other products in the Hydration Burst range. Thank you all for reading and I hope you test this cleanser out!
