Many months ago, I was supposed to review three BOOTS products which I have received from asia.boots.com (managed by Boots Retail Thailand). And also to throw a giveaway on Boots products at the same time. So why am I taking so long to post this review? Well it is because Boots and I couldn’t agree on the giveaway mechanic and eventually I decided to post the review minus the giveaway.
At first, Boots Asia suggested that in order for the readers to participate for the giveaway, each of them will need to submit a photo of themselves with their favourite Boots product that work. The most creative picture wins. And Boots Asia has claimed that this is actually a simple mechanic. Well simple to them but not for my readers though! I was extremely turned off by the suggested mechanic as that will mean my readers will need to purchase a Boots product before they can participate on the giveaway. Why should my readers part their money just for the giveaway? And my email box will also be flooded with readers’ submission too. It’s too troublesome for me and my readers especially! It just doesn’t make any sense at all! What a stupid idea!
They later tweaked it a little by suggesting having my readers to capture a screenshot of a Boots product that they would like to try out and why. Well so what’s the different, this mechanic is as bad as the first!
Anyway, the three products that I will be reviewing are No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Beauty Serum, No7 Lift & Luminate Eye Cream and No7 Lift & Luminate Day Cream SPF 15.
But firstly, are you familiar with this UK brand BOOTS? If you’re not, click here for a brief description of the brand.
My Impression With BOOTS Products
I’ve noticed that one of the products I’ve received, it actually looks different from the ones found at UK website.
No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Beauty Serum
Reveal younger looking skin with No7 Protect & Perfect Beauty Serum. This powerful blend of protecting and renewing ingredients helps reduce the appearance of pores, smoothing lines and wrinkles in 4 weeks.
Although this silicone-based fragrance-free serum contains sodium ascorbyl phosphate (one of the less potent Vitamin C), retinyl palmitate (is Vitamin A but not retinol as claimed) and other antioxidants such as Vitamin E but unfortunately I couldn’t see any result at all.
