Me and my Boo Boo
I don’t believe that this is the actual meaning behind the name but to me, it’s my beauty boo times two. I absolutely love this product. I may not be vegan but my skin pretty much is.
The official painted earth website describes Boo Boo gel as a natural anti inflammatory blemish banisher, to soothe, heal and nourish skin. It is also said to dramatically reduce the appearance of pores. Win Win!!!!
Directions: Apply after moisturiser for acne directly on the area. It can be applied several times a day.
Acne is not an issue for me but the ingredients in Boo Boo gel were very impressive and because of the benefits to the skin I was intrigued. The following ingredients and their uses were what really made me fall in love with Boo Boo gel.
- Organic Gotu Kola
- Peppermint essential oil
- Colloidal silver
- Organic Arnica
- Organic green tea
- Wild geranium
The aloe vera gel helps to treat sunburn, the menthol provides a wonderful cooling sensation perfect for summer weather and the organic licorice diminishes the appearance of dark under eye circles, discolouration and age spots.
Most people fear gel formulations because of drying skin ingredients like alcohol but with boo boo gel you are offered a cool minty freshness which is a perfect wake me up in the morning. I don’t think you can expect all day hydration from one application as it is very lightweight so its better to apply a few times a day. It’s perfectly fine under makeup as it is easily absorbed into the skin without any greasy residue.
I only wish that there was a squeeze bottle option. I always prefer these to jars when it comes to skin care products as it’s more hygienic. This is really my only issue but overall I love Boo Boo Gel and it has definitely found a permanent place in my skin care regime.You can find it here. It retails at about £19. Currently not available in the UK, hint hint Joanne but they do offer international shipping. Hope you try it out. You won’t be disappointed.
