What Skin Type Are You? Watch the Video!

We’re constantly talking about skincare in the office, and it’s truly amazing how different our individual routines and concerns are. That said, we’re all looking for products that make our skin feel healthy, bright, and youthful. And if those products happen to be at an affordable price point, we’re twice as excited. That’s why we couldn’t wait to try out a box of fresh products that arrived on our doorstep from Botanics. Watch the video below to see what happened:

We couldn’t wait to try out the full rainbow of products from the Botanics skincare collection. The brand is powered by plants, with each product line — Organic, All Bright, Shine Away, Hydration Burst, Radiant Youth, Triple Age Renewal, and Mediterranean Eden — formulated with a unique key extract to target a specific skincare concern. All Botanics products are free of parabens, mineral oils and paraffin waxes and man-made chemicals are replaced with natural ingredients where possible.


The All Bright collection from Botanics utilizes the key plant extract of hibiscus. The exfoliating flower acids found around the Hibiscus seed-pods are rich in AHA’s (Alpha Hydroxy Acids) which helps gently refine the surface of the skin to improve its texture and tone. This line is great for all skin types, and the first one we all tried.

Chanel and I used the All Bright Cleansing Facial Wipes to remove any dirt or makeup before trying out other products from the line. These are great for us to keep in the office for freshening up after a hot outdoor shoot!

The Botanics Organic Softening Cleanser from Botanics was the perfect match for Chanel’s sensitive, breakout prone skin. Infused with rosehip extract (which is rich in omegas and essential fatty acids) this cream cleanser leaves behind a healthy complexion, with her skin feeling smooth and supple as it sweeps away make-up, oil and impurities.

Camille’s main skin concerns are anti-aging and brightening, so she was pumped to try the Radiant Youth Super Serum with Ginkgo and the Shine Away with Willowbark Ionic Clay Mask.

She LOVES a good clay treatment, so Camille was hooked on the Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask. Formulated with Willowbark extract, this mineral-rich oceanic clay mask contains a negative electrical charge which acts like a magnet, helping to draw deep-rooted impurities out of the skin without drying. Its hydrating and oil absorbing properties leave skin soft, smooth and wonderfully cleansed.

I found the right match for my dry, sensitive skin with the Botanic’s Hydration Burst Dual Action Cleanser. Rich in hydrating Clary Sage extract, this cleanser transforms from a gel into a skin-comforting milk when it comes in contact with water. It cleanses and soothes skin without leaving it feeling dry or tight. Win!


Camille was really into the Radiant Youth Super Serum with Ginkgo, which is rich in ginkgo extract (a powerful anti-oxidant) and boosts radiance in just two weeks.

And we all loved the 100% Organic Toning Spritz with Rosewater, which smells great and is truly refreshing!

Thanks, Botanics, for sending us so many fun products to discover. Our bungalow bathroom is STOCKED with plant-based beauty!
