Formula 10.0.6 Skincare Review

After seeing multiple pictures on Instagram of the new Formula 10.0.6 products in Boots, I was super excited when the brand kindly sent me a few bits to try out for myself. The range is quite extensive including everything from cleansers to spot treatments which is really nice to see from a highstreet brand. Their products  focus on banishing blemishes and promoting clear, healthy skin. I'm really happy with what I received and I wanted to do a mini review for you guys so you can get a better understanding of what the products are like, and whether they're worth buying. 
Also, I'd just like to say that I have no affiliation with this brand and I am not being paid to write this blog post. I hope you enjoy! 


Best Face Forward Daily Foaming Cleanser - £8.99
Before you all gasp in horror, I will admit straight away that I was actually quite hesitant to try this foaming product. This is a gel cleanser with Passion Fruit, Chamomile and Green Tea extracts which help balance, brighten and clean the skin. It has a gorgeous fresh but fruity scent which really helps perk me up in the morning. The gel texture massages nicely into the skin, especially when emulsified with water. I'm not usually one to emulsify but thankfully this doesn't turn into bubbly dishwater. I didn't find it to be drying however I do use rich moisturisers and facial oils which do combat dryness. I like to use oil based cleansers most of the time but I would definitely incorporate this into my routine 2-3 times a week or whenever I'm feeling a bit greasy. Overall this is a lovely morning/second cleanse that gives me soft, clear skin whilst blurring my imperfections, making them less noticeable. This is a definite thumbs up from me

Pores Be Pure Skin-Clarifying Mud Mask - £8.99
I was super excited when I saw this mask in the package as I'm a massive face mask junkie and I'm always looking for a new one to slather all over my face. I wasn't sure whether it would be just another average mud mask but the results after my first use really impressed me. My skin texture was completely smooth, my pores and oilier areas were more refined and my overall complexion was glowing. It contains Strawberry, Rosemary and Yarrow extracts which work really well together to give my skin that 'perfected' look, when it's actually all over the place. This is great mask to use a couple times a week when you need that extra boost. I think the best part about it is that it smells like Petits Filous! 😍

So Totally Clean Deep Pore Cleanser - £8.99
This is described as a 2 in 1 cleanser and toner but in my eyes it's an exfoliating toner. It's a complete liquid texture that you pour onto a cotton pad and apply after cleansing. It contains Salicylic and Lactic Acid which are great ingredients for breaking down dead skin cells revealing fresh, new skin. I have definitely noticed that my skin looks smoother, clearer and more glowy when I use this. The only downside to the product is the high alcohol content and strong smell. Personally I can get away with using alcohol every couple of days since I use rich moisturising products at the same time but young 'teen' skin may find it too drying. It all depends on how you react to alcohol products but it's definitely worth trying if you think your skin can handle it. 

I hope you found this interesting and helpful guys! Don't forget to let me know if you try some Formula 10.0.6 products.
