Boots & The Body Shop Haul

With the offers on in Boots, and a trip to The Body Shop, a haul was inevitable!




The Body Shop


After speaking to the lady who worked at The Body Shop about what moisturiser would be best for me, I picked up the Aloe Vera Night Creamas my skin tends to be quite sensitive so this is less likely to react badly with me. I've been needing another moisturiser for a while now, and I love how thick and creamy this is. The Aloe Vera Face Serum looks like it will be the perfect partner to the night cream. I've been looking for a serum to add to my skincare routine for a while now, and after seeing this in Essie Buttons latest video and blog post, I had to get it. She has dry skin too, so I'm hoping this product works as well for me as it does for her. Having dry skin means I suffer from chapped lips quite a lot too, and the Aloe Vera Lip Balm looks like the perfect thing to combat this. I plan to apply this after the rest of my skincare just before I go to sleep to keep my lips moisturised throughout the night. I also bought another lip balm - I do love a good lip balm - the  Vitamin E Lip Balm. I plan to carry this around with me during the day to use whenever I feel like I need a little added moisture.


Boots

I bought the Sactuary Moisturising Body Mist, Sanctuary Illuminating Moisture Lotion and the Johnsons Baby Shampoo on a 3 for 2 offer at Boots. The Sanctuary products were bought with the intention to take them on holiday with me, however of course I've already started using them! The moisture lotion is a great addition to my morning skincare routine, and the body mist will definitely come in handy over the warmer months! I recently ran out of baby shampoo, which I use for cleaning my brushes, so this was just a repurchase. I'd been wanting to try the L'Oreal Miss Manga Mascara for a while now, so while Boots had their offer on I just had to buy it. I've also been on the hunt for a good primer, as I haven't had much luck so far - all you dry skinned gals, please leave recommendations in the comments! Anyway, I picked up the L'Oreal Lumi Magique Primer and so far I'm a little undecided on whether I like it or not! It is illuminating but it doesn't seem to make my make up last any longer. The search continues it seems! Finally, I bought the Rimmel Scandaleyes Liner, and this is a firm favourite of mine. I wear winged liner near enough every day and this liner is a must for me!


Do you have any of these products? What do you think of them?

  2. I've not got any face stuff from the Body Shop but after reading this I might look into it! Good haul, I think Boots is probably laughing at all us bloggers at the minute, whilst sitting on their piles of cash!
