No7 Beautiful Skin Melting Gel Cleanser 

Every few months Boots holds a promotion where customers who spend over £5 are rewarded with a voucher for their No7 range or perfumes. I adore this promotion, finding it an excellent way to try out products from their own brand No7 range. You may recall my previous post regarding their No7 Beautiful Skin Melting Gel Cleanser where I waxed lyrical about how great I found this product to be. I managed to accumulate a few of these vouchers during the promotion and knew a repurchase of the cleanser was a must, deciding on a whim to try their Beautiful Skin Cleansing Lotion and two makeup brushes. 

The products from (left to right):  
No7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Lotion: Unfortunately this was a fail for me; found I needed to use a lot of product and it didn't get off all of my makeup. My skin became heated and I can't see me daring to finish it.

No7 Eye Contour Brush: Much hyped dupe for MAC's 217, really good blending brush. Fits into my eye area perfectly without being too stiff or soft on the skin in this delicate area. I have subsequently repurchased another two brushes for my kit). 

No7 Essential Lip Brush: As a Woman of Colour I love my full lips, but find many lip brushes far too small to allow me to build up colour on my lips for a lasting finish. It was the size of the brush that caught my attention and found the firmness of the bristles to be superb. If you love a good red lip a good lip brush is essential. Yet another repurchase.

No7 Beautiful Skin Melting Gel Cleanser: A excellent gel cleanser repurchased as I love taking off makeup with it. Trust me - it gets rid of everything!

I used to be weary of trying own-brand products but I’m glad that smart promotions such as the No7 promotion affords me the opportunity to become familiar with excellent products and at a relatively decent price point.

Have you made use of this promotion – what product(s) go you recommend?


  1. Oh that's great I've never really dabbled too much in the No7 range - I didn't know they had a contour brush dupe worthy for MAC :) in the future I'll look out for it!

    The only No7 things I have bought (with the offer) were the Hot Polish Cleanser and a lip liner. To tell the truth, I didn't like them much (cleanser stung a lil + the lip liner was too pink). So I can't recommend any.

    BUT I'm interested in this gel cleanser ... is it drying? Does it sting?

    Oh + btw - Thanks for sharing your finds :)

    1. Thank you for commenting.

      The Gel Cleanser wasn't drying or sting at all. I was surprised by the make-up brush but quickly overcame this to buy more, lol.
      Love your name (Mango & Fudge)!
