At Target? Who knew...

From the Daily Mail

I've always seen Boots products on trips to London, but never these super cute glass bottles. Then recently, at Target of all places, I saw these and thought the packaging was so cute I had to buy some. And it reminded me of London - double plus! I got the Bath Foam (bergamot and sage), the Cleansing Milk (geranium) and the Skin Tonic (damask rose). When I got home and used them I absolutely loved them! Especially the facial stuff. And this is coming from someone who usually uses La Mer. Everything usually makes my skin explode, so I was taking a bit of a gamble, but the next day when I woke up my face looked great! And the bath foam - or bubble bath - smells awesome and lots of bubbles. 

Boots Original Beauty Formula

So a couple days later I went back to see what else they had and I ran into the Boots rep. I asked her about the products and it turns out they are all based on the original, archived, beauty formulas Boots used in the 19th century. I thought that was absolutely the neatest. Apparently, the formulas are very close to the originals. Of course, without the scary authentic Victorian additives, like lead and arsenic. We've come a long way.

I ended up buying the Lip Salve, the Skin Balm and the Vanishing Day Cream. All great. Highly recommended. Plus they're just really cool if you're into history. The packaging is gorgeous, too.
