Boots' Ingredients skincare range is rivalling high end brands

The Boots Ingredients range has some great dupes for your favourite skincare. 

Are you on the look out for a new skin care routine that lives up to your firm favourites but you don't need a small loan for? Then look no further.


Coming into the cold weather and dark evenings it's more important to protect our skin and enjoy some much needed pampering too.

Boots new Ingredients range features on product with one ingredient to enhance your skin, and the range is designed to be personalised. Based on your own skins needs you can mix and match between the collection to create the best routine.

There are 26 different items to choose from and starting at just €5 it won't break the bank to try out. The range has already received many positive reviews since its release, being frequently compared online to The Ordinary and The Inkey List. 

So let's get into the big comparisons between some of the products. 

Retinol Eye Cream 

Retinol is known for increasing the production of collagen which can help dispel fine lines and wrinkles.

This is fantastic in an eye cream as it can diminish the appearance of fine lines that creep up around our eyes.


The Boots Ingredients Retinol eye cream retails at €9 for 15ml. This is half the price of the RoC Retinol Correxion eye cream, which boasts the same ingredient and purpose. 

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is used in skincare for its ability to alleviate dry skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and also speed up the healing process for wounds. It's also perfect for someone who suffers from dry skin and scabbing.


Boots have a Hyaluronic Acid Moisturiser which is €5 for 30ml. The Ordinary doesn't include hyaluronic acid in a moisturiser but it does have a serum with it and this is €12 for 60ml - although there is not much in the price difference here, Boots is still coming in cheaper. 

Salicylic Acid

Salicylic acid is often applied to pimple-prone areas of the skin. It helps the skin shed dead cells and reduces both redness and inflammation. By shedding the dead skin cells it can also help with unblocking pores. 

The Salicylic Acid Cleanser in the new Boots range can be used every day to clean the skin and reduce the reappearance of spots, and only costs €5 for 50ml. The Ordinary's Salicylic Acid face mask, although still very reasonable, is double the price.


If none of those tickle your fancy, there is lots more to try from multi-biotic moisturisers to Bakuchiol serum. You can view the full range here
