Boots Detox Retox

All The Beauty Stuff That'll Make You Feel Human Again

The Debrief: Because, wow. It's been quite a month. Debrief Partnership with Boots.

It's been quite a month, hasn’t it? Countless parties, Christmas, NYE and somehow fitting in ‘going to work’ (most of the time). Needless to say, you’re knackered.

This would be OK, bearable at least, if your body wasn’t letting the side down and telling the whole world – via blemishes and dark circles and grey skin, nice – about it. As it stands, you’re in desperate need of a pick-me-up and we’ve got just the things...

Face

Origins Original Skin Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay, £23 for 100ml, Boots.com

This mask is an ace all-rounder when your skin needs perking up. The rose clay helps draws out impurities and unclog pores while the jojoba beads exfoliate the skin, exposing the new, brighter skin surface cells. 

Yes to Blueberries Intensive Skin Repair Serum, £15.99 for 30ml, Boots.com

Blueberries contain a load of good stuff like vitamins C and E, which help to even skin tone and nourish the skin. Slather this on after your mask and you’ll be on your way to looking fresh-faced again.

Body

Soap & Glory Orangeasm Exfoliating Body Polish, £8 for 250ml, Boots.com

Nothing gives a pick-me-up like tangy, citrus scents and this product (exclusive to Boots) contains green mandarin, lemon and sweet orange peel. Perfect for a shot of zestiness during your morning shower.

 

Botanics Long Handled Body Brush, £10, Boots.com

Body brushing has a load of benefits like helping to exfoliate the skin and helping your lymphatic system to rid the body of toxins (let’s face it, you have a lot of these atm). Just moisten the bristles and use with a body wash and you’re good to go! This Botanics brush is exclusive to Boots.

Westlab Pure Mineral Bathing Himalayan Pink Salt, £4.99 for 1kg, Boots.com

Salt baths work by drawing toxins out of the body via osmosis (go on, rack your GCSE biology brain). Himalayan Pink Salt is especially good because it contains 84 minerals (including magnesium, potassium and iron) which are absorbed through your skin. Try body brushing beforehand for a double-whammy.

Hair

Bumble and Bumble Sunday Shampoo, £18.50 for 250ml, Boots.com

Your hair's been good to you for the last few months,what with all that hairspraying and back-combing and straightening. Time to give something back. Use this clarifying shampoo once a week instead of your regular shampoo – it gets rid of product build-up, pollutants and other nasties, leaving your hair super clean.

Sleep

This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray, £16 for 75ml, Boots.com

Sleep's not been high on your list of priorities the last few weeks so now's the time to catch up. Spritz this onto your pillow before sleeping and the relaxing essential oils of lavender, vetivert and wild camomile will help get you snoozing in no time.
