Tell us more...
Nearly two decades on from the launch of No.7’s Protect & Perfect Serum – the industry-acclaimed anti-ageing range that had women queuing round the block – high-street stalwart Boots has unveiled a new range which is every bit as ground-breaking. Promising to transform the condition of your skin in just 28 days, we’re listening up. Developed in collaboration with 2,500 real women as well as scientists and dermatologists, rest assured this is skincare for everyone that really does what it says.
What’s in the range?
A lot. The range comprises 23 products, including eight different cleansers from wipes to washes, toners, scrubs and a mask. The collection is designed to keep skin balanced and healthy – effectively, they want the range to pre-empt skin issues rather than act as an SOS when problems arise. The stand-out product? The Balancing Skin Concentrate, formulated to improve skin texture, moisture levels, radiance and oiliness in just under a month thanks to an impressive antioxidant complex. Other hero products include the Nourishing Hot Cloth Cleanser, which makes light work of dirt and make-up; the SPF 30 Antioxidant Day Cream, which is surprisingly lightweight and sits perfectly under make-up; as well as the Blackhead Clearing Scrub, which really does banish unsightly blackheads from the first use.
Who’s it for?
Simply put, if you’re looking for dermatologically backed skincare that won’t cost the earth, you can’t go wrong with Your Good Skin. The packaging may not be Insta-worthy but don’t judge a book by its cover – these are results-driven formulas that won’t disappoint. However, it’s worth noting those looking to up their anti-ageing game should steer clear – unlike No.7, Your Good Skin isn’t an anti-ageing range; instead, it’s goal is to re-balance skin and settle any issues such as excessive oiliness or uneven skin tone and texture. In short, it’s your secret to a good skin day, every day.
Does it really work?
You’ll be hard pushed to find a negative review from both beauty editors (including ourselves) and the British public alike, and while the products won’t radically change your skin, it’s clear Boots is onto something. Thousands of women have attested to the fact their skin is noticeably clearer, softer and more radiant after just 28 days.
What’s the damage?
With prices starting from just £3.99 (serums are priced more in the £15 range), Your Good Skin certainly won’t break the bank. On the hunt for no-frills skincare that genuinely works? You heard it here first.
