I might not be a fan of some of the changes Boots have made to their Botanics line, but alongside the rebranding they have brought out some interesting new products. The one that caught my attention most is their new Rosewater Toning Spritz.
Spray toners feel so much more refreshing than ones applied with cotton wool during the summer and they also cut down on waste. As I double cleanse using a muslin cloth, I'm not personally looking for a toner to remove excess makeup or cleanser so I skip wiping the toner off with cotton wool. Instead I just spritz it on, dabbing off any excess with a towel, to refresh and calm the skin before moisturiser. I wish the mist it created was slightly finer, but that's a small complaint.
I don't feel as though this toner is as calming or clarifying to my skin as the Caudalie beauty elixir, but it does contain less potential irritants and also glycerin, so this might be a good option for more sensitive or dry skin types. It's also a lot cheaper at £4.99. Still a bit of an unjustified hike from the range's previous pricing, but at time of writing it is on offer for £3.33.
The ingredients are super simple (Aqua (Water), Alcohol denat.*, Glycerin*, Rosa damascena flower oil*, Citronellol) and it's 100% organic.
