17-year-old Zara is one of a new breed of young micro-bloggers who share their views and passions with an audience of like-minded friends and followers on the Internet.

Cosmetics and skincare are always popular topics, and we often get contacted by bloggers who want to review our products. These reviews are a great way to spread the word about Botanicals. So we’re always delighted to help.

Zara wanted to try our Nourishing face balm. And it was the first couple of lines of her review (click to read in full) which immediately caught my eye;

I’ve always struggled with my acne-prone skin, so I absolutely love getting the opportunity to trial new skincare products in the hope of finding one that will work for my skin.

I have two young(ish) daughters and they’ve both suffered at times with acne. So I know how it can effect teenage confidence – especially in these fiercely image-conscious times. Zara went on to say;

I received this Nourishing Face Balm from Botanicals a few weeks ago and I can safely say that it is the best skincare product I own. The difference in my skin is remarkable – it looks so much more healthier and fresh. So much so, that even my mum wants to use my Nourishing Face Balm!

I couldn’t recommend this product more, it has completely changed my skincare routine and improved my skin significantly.

Anti-acne skincare ritual

It’s a really lovely review. (And I love the bit about her mum wanting to try some of the balm!) But it also reminded me to post details of the skincare routine I developed for my two daughters when they suffered from acne. They found it worked really well. And a lot of their friends did as well. I must remember to post it here!*
