Haul: Boots, Superdrug, Lush and The Body Shop

Last Saturday I went into town to get a few things that I've been wanting for a while now. Got some pretty good deals on what I brought too, so thought I'd share it all.

Simple Cleansing Wipes were on offer, 3 for £5 so i got some as I've heard they're good but never tried them before.

Got these two on offer for 2 for £5, so great deal when they're normally about £4.90 each! I use and repurchase the pink grapefruit daily scrub regularly, but wanted to try out the new moisturiser in the line too.

Not that you need to know this, but my feet got unusually dry skin recently so brought Soap & Glory's Heel Genius to see if it worked as I have previously enjoyed using their hand cream. Also heard that the St Ives scrubs are good so will try that one out too. It was half price too, so that's a bonus!

These are just the razors I use and repurchase every time I run out. Not much more to say about that purchase!

While on my spending spree I had to treat myself to some make-up. I've wanted to get the Revlon Lip Butter in Pink Truffle since they came out in this country as it's the perfect everyday colour for me, but first tried out a slightly more daring colour being Candy Apple. I've heard the Sleek eye palettes are good, couldn't decide between 'au natural' and 'storm', but got this one. I brought all 3 of these on the 3 for 2 offer in Superdrug.

I wanted to try this to see if it worked as a spot treatment basically.

I find it so annoying when my lips get even a little dry. It is not a good look when I want to wear lipstick, so hopefully this will help. Also it smells/tastes like After Eights so I'll definitely look forward to using it.

That's everything! May end up doing a review for some of the products mentioned here after I have used them for a while.

TAG: Would you rather?

Q1. Would you rather go out with messy hair and nice make-up or Nice hair and no make-up?

A: Definitley messy hair and nice make-up.

2.Would you rather shave your eyebrows or have your eyelashes fall out?

A: Hard one! Shave my eyebrows?

3.Would you rather be forced to shop at only MAC or Sephora for the rest of your life?

A: I've never shopped at either but as we don't have Sephora in the UK I'd choose MAC.

4.Would you rather wear lipgloss/lipliner look or 80's perm?

A: 80's perm. I've seen picture of my Mum in the 80's with her perm and always wondered what I'd look like with one.

5.Would you rather leave the house with an obvious foundation line or overdone blush?

A: Neither would look nice but an obvious foundation line would be preferred to looking like a clown!

6.Would you rather wear MC Hammer pants or biker shorts in public?

A: Without thinking, much rather wear biker shorts in public.

7.Would you rather have a bad orange-y spray tan or really weird tan lines that can't be covered?

A: Really weird tan lines. Not a good look but better than looking orange!

8.Would you rather have a bad haircut or bad hair color?

A: Bad hair cut, which can disguised a lot easier than a bad hair colour.

9.Would you rather have youtube or twitter taken away forever?

A: Twitter. I rarely use it.

10. Would you rather give up using makeup brushes or mascara?

A: You can get away without using make-up brushes so I'd rather give up those.

Skincare Haul: No7, Garnier, Soap and Glory.

Recently I seem to have being buying a lot of new things for myself. I've just been letting myself buy a few things that I know I really want. Today I brought these 3 new skincare products in Boots. I way very pleased with this purchase as I only had to spend 80p of my own money on £17 worth of products! (This was due to receiving a £10 Boots voucher from filling out surveys online, a £5 off No7 voucher given to me after a previous Boots purchase and the moisturiser was currently being sold at a reduced price.) There will be reviews of all these products coming up after I have tried them out for long enough.

First thing I brought and the main thing I knew I wanted was this No7 Beautiful Skin Hot Cloth Cleanser. I've heard that this has been compared to the Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser which has been raved about in the beauty community so I wanted to try it out. It says it is suitable for all skin types and the cleanser comes with a muslin cloth. It is currently on sale for £10, available from Boots stores only. (Only £5 if you use a £5 off No7 voucher.)

I brought this moisturiser as I am running out of the one I am currently using (Neutrogena Visibly Clear Oil-Free Moisturiser) and wanted to try something different. I haven't read any reviews on this product previous to buying but thought I would try it out from the description on the box. This product is normally on sale in Boots for £4.99 but is currently being sold at the reduced price of £3.33.

Last thing was this Soap and Glory Flake Away exfoliator. I have heard recommendations for this product and so I brought the smallest size of it to try out. This is currently priced at £2.50 in Boots.
