Boots Haulin'

It's that time of year again... Boots 3 for 2! I think all beauty enthusiasts get a little crazy when the sale is on - buying far too much or something you'll never use just because you'll ultimately get a 3rd item free.

Well I think I was extremely good to be honest, I only picked up what I really needed, or had lusted over for a really, really long time. This is what I picked up!

Garnier Micellar Water - £4.99
I was about to run out of my favourite L'Oreal Micellar water, and with this being fairly new, and double the size for the same price, I thought I'd give it a try. It aims to do pretty much the same as all other micellar waters, the only difference I can see is that you get a much bigger bottle!

Garnier Express 2 in 1 Eye Makeup Remover - £3.50
I picked this up because I needed some new eye makeup remover, and while I'm trying out the Garnier Micellar water, I might as well give this one a go too. Its a two part solution, with water underneath and oil on top - much like the No7 one I love. I'll see how this one matches up. 

L'Oreal Nude Magique BB Powder - £6.99 
Now, I'm not a fan of brands shoving 'BB' and 'CC' at the front of every new product they bring out. BB stands for beauty balm right? How can a powder be a balm too? ANYWAY, I was in desperate need of a setting powder, and one that would reduce shine. I haven't read much about this, but to be honest, this was the only powder that grabbed my attention in boots. I'll see how we get on... 

No7 Pop and Glow Cream Blush in Mango Sorbet - £9.95
Ever since I saw this in a magazine a few weeks ago I HAD to have it. I popped into Boots as soon as I was near one, but they didn't stock it. I was gutted, but pay day came and I put this on my list. I picked up the shade Mango Sorbet - A peachy colour which is more on the orange side, which I really love. It's unlike any colour I have in my collection. A full review to come on this! 

Soap and Glory - The Greatest Scrub Of All - £9
If you read my #haveyoudiscovered post on Sunday you'll know that my new skincare thing is facial polish. I was using a tiny bottle from Benefit, and knew I was about to run out. I've heard a lot about Soap and Glory skincare recently, so I thought I'd give their version of facial polish a try. I love it. 

Seventeen Top Coat Nail Effects - £3.99
The blogger made me buy it - this is all down to ETCLLYMLRS. She has made me obsessed with glitter top coats! This one has white, green and blue non-metallic flecks in it. Perfect for the pastel trend atm. 

Revlon Colour Stay Quad in Addictive - £1 Lucky Dip! 
The Boots I visited (Denton, Crown Point) had a lucky dip going on, raising money for Macmillan, so I gave it a go. I was really happy that I pulled this out. A gorgeous, matte neutral pallet. 

I think my overall savings at Boots was about £16! I do think I'll be heading back before the week is through, there's a couple more items on my radar I need to try!
I'm going to be giving all of these a test drive, and as soon as I think I've tried it as much as I can I'll review them for you. After only a couple of days I can already tell which ones are staples and which ones I'm not too bothered about. Watch this space!

  2. 3 for 2 is so hard to resist. You bought some great products. I have been loving the Garnier Micellar Water & want to try the Eye Makeup remover too.

  3. Ill be doing a full review on them soon - I'm still not sold on the eye makeup remover at the moment, but going to give it another couple of weeks before I make my verdict! xx
