Are these two really worth it?

Ive really been loving skincare at the moment, I kind of go through stages wanting cleansers, toners etc then one minute I want all the makeup in the world. My skin is pretty good/clear so I barely use that much products (oops) I do cleanse, tone, mask and moisturiser but thats when I can be bothered and I want to give my skin a good clean. Maybe I don't bother that much cause I'm using boring skincare products, who knows? I then had a thought, every person needs to take care of there skin a splash of water is going to do nothing, but to me id rather spend my money on makeup and clothes any day. Ive suddenly had a turn and I want every highend skincare there is, although they are expensive so I've been sticking to highstreet for now.

Anyways enough of my ramble, what do I really think of these two skincare products? do they work? Should I be spending my money on much more high quality products? 

Botanics Micellar 3 in 1 cleansing water - I have been through loads of cleansing waters, Garner, Loreal, If you asked me which one works better and whats the difference I couldn't tell you, to me they are all just as good as each other, this cost only £4.49 a bargain and this is one product I wouldn't bother splashing my money out on for a higher end one.

La Roche Posay Serozinc spray - Im not really sure what I think of this, Ive tried another product from this range and it broke me out, but I thought I would give this range another go seeing as everyone raved about this product. I don't really see the hype in my opinion, I don't find it moisturising or worth using as I see no benefits, it also gives me the odd couple of spots which is a shame.

Don't get me wrong I love spending money on cheaper alternatives but its also nice to have a luxury pamper knowing your getting your moneys worth, so Im now going on the hunt for some new skincare such as Elemis, clarins. I want to enjoy taking my makeup off at night with products I enjoy. What do you think of these two products? Whats your Favourite skincare product?


  1. I agree with micellar waters most do the same thing so i don't think i would buy an expensive one, i love the Garnier one! x

  2. I will definitely give the Botanics cleansing water a go, I know there isn't much difference but i get bored using the same thing over and over haha xxx

  3. I love the Botanics one, my favourite thing about it is the brightening element! Definitely worth it x

  4. thank you for being so honest with your review! I really like La Roche Posay's skincare range but i'll be sticking with the products I know work for me instead of trying this one. Great post.

  5. I haven't tried either product. I was intrigued by the La Roche Posay Serozinc spray because I enjoy their products in general (love Effaclar Duo). If you're interested in Clarins though, I recommend the "Special" Eye Contour Balm (basically a rich but lightweight eye cream) and the Body Tonic Oil (a luxury splurge).
