  • Real women helped create this game changing new skincare brand from Boots that’s proven to make your skin look healthier in 5 different ways...

    When trusty high-street favourite Boots announced it was launching Your Good Skin, the first new skincare range from the pharmacy in over 20 years, we sat up and took notice.

    Following on from Boots iconic No. 7 Protect and Perfect Serum, which launched to sellout success and had a waiting list of 50,000, the release of this new results-driven skincare line had us beauty geeks quivering with excitement.

    Just like No.7, Your Good Skin’s efficacy is proven by some impressive clinical trial results that promise to improve the appearance and health of your skin in just 28 days. Unlike No.7 it isn’t an anti-ageing range, instead its goal is to re-balance skin and settle any issues like excessive oiliness or uneven skin tone and texture.

    The range was created in co-collaboration with Derms, scientists and real women. Yes, you read that right. Over 2500 real women shared experiences of their skincare problems, worries and concerns with the Boot’s team giving them vital insight that inspired the product formulations. Your Good Skin is as affordable as you’d expect from the high street too, with prices starting from just £4 up to a maximum of £17. There are 23 products in total; from cleansers to masks, face washes, serums and night creams.

    now: Balancing Skin Concentrate for £16.95 from Boots

    The hero is the Balancing Skin Concentrate, which is ‘clinically proven to deliver healthier looking skin in 5 areas: skin texture, skin tone, radiance, oiliness and moisture levels,’ says Dr Mike Bell the Boots Scientist who formulated the range. Packed with antioxidants Vitamin C, Vitamin E and green tea and Japanese Lily Turf Root that helps to improve the complexion.

    I’ll have to admit that in the face of these impressive claims, I was skeptical. Could a lotion really do all of that? But, after just 3 days of using the concentrate my skin felt noticeably softer, smoother and looked glowier too. So far, so good.

    The clinical trials took place over 28 days, so I’ll be putting the rest of the range to the test with a Your Good Skin review over on Marie Claire’s Instagram stories so make sure you keep up to date with how I get on IG: @marieclaireuk and @charlotteafclark

    If your Boots points are burning a hole in your pocket, this is one fail-safe skincare investment that you won’t regret.
