Hey there! so a week or so ago boots had a offer on because it was the 21st anniversary of the advantage card, so they were doing 21 points per pound spent! yes please! you had to spend over £60. But lets face it that isnt exactly a hard thing to do! i had a couple of things i needed, but the rest i picked up because i wanted to try them and/or thought they would be good for the blog, so here it all is!
So first up is all the face, body and hair care that i picked up! this is where i spent my bulk, ill be honest.
i picked up two bottles of the zingy mango and papaya shower gel 75p, i am very fond of cheap good smelling shower gel! but so is everyone else that shares my bathroom, so lots of bottles it is.
Nail polish remover £1, because well i needed it.
boots smooth care hair removal cream £3.49, because same reason.
i picked up two skincare products from soap & glory, ive tried both of these before but a while ago now! i picked up the soap & glory peaches and clean deep cleansing milk £8.00 and the soap & glory speed plump overnight miracle moisture mousse £14.00. The cleansing milk was my go to morning cleanse and second cleanse for over a year years ago, and i am so happy to have it back! its a wonderful cleanser, feels lovely on the skin but has that extra zing to it. The mousse has a lovely almost butter like texture to it, and sinks in so well, im glad to have these back!
I grabbed another tube of the garnier skin active matcha detox face mask £5.99, this is such a lovely face mask for when you want a deep clean for your skin. my skin is stressed and hormonal right now and this mask felt wonderful on, its cooling and feels like its doing something, maybe it doesnt but it feels good! and my previous tube was down to the last drops.
Garnier ultimate blends coconut oil treatment mask £4.99, how many of these have i had in blog posts now? i love these masks.
No7 nourishing cleansing balm £13.00, thanks to the hashtag #carolinehironsmademedoit and the skincare freaks facebook group my skincare obsession is right back into swing! i tend to swing between makeup and skincare, skincare it is at the minute, i was doing the 3 for 2 items thing and i spotted that this was one of the options and scooped it straight up. always looking for good budget balm and oil cleansers!
so onto the makeup i bought! the masqd sponge was a free gift when you buy kind of thing, will be interesting to try.
i spent ages looking at various makeup items, always going back to NYX as i so often do! they have this really cool gothic looking collection at the moment but after looking at everything i just knew i had too much like it or i wouldnt use it. I got my heart set on a blusher, and then i spotted this and i was sold, its the NYX ombre blush in codebreaker £9.00, a really bright purpley pink mixed with a purple.
I needed a new black pencil liner so i picked up this one from NYX the slide on eye pencil £6.50, ive only swatched it but its very creamy!
finally, if you have followed beauty news for a while you would know that boots own brand 17 was discontinued a few months ago. But i found that some of there items were still on the website with a very heavy discount! I was very excited to find that the 17 staytime concealer in extra fair was there, for 90p! so i picked up three of them, obviously.
I also spotted a shadow for £1 in purple, so i couldnt leave that now could i?
Anyway thats everything i picked up! ive been spending a lot lately, i need to rein it back a bit, she says!
