Beauty and Skincare Haul

For the first time in a long time, I went shopping last week and may have ended up buying a few bits. So I thought a quick haul was needed. 

So the first place I went was Savers. If you've never heard or it or been there, then it's a cheaper version of Boots and Superdrug minus the makeup aisles. It's such a great place to shop for any beauty/skincare/general toiletries as they sell the same as other places just a bit cheaper. 

I went in there looking for a new face wash as since I've moved home from uni for summer I don't have one here. 

I came across this. I've recently become quite skin conscious and so wanted a brand I could trust. Having heard good things about Simple I've decided to give it a go. I bought the Facial Toner and Face Wash in this range. They have so many different products but I picked these as I hope they'll do the job. 

The Body Shop
It's not a beauty haul without some Body Shop in here. I actually went into there looking for necessary items; BB cream but walked out with a few more. 

BB Cream, The Body Shop, £12
So like I said I went in to buy the All-In-One BB Cream which I use. I've mentioned this in my What's in my makeup bag post so it's not a new product to me. It's a great alternative to foundation. I also came across it in Youtuber Zoella's monthly favourites and couldn't help but smile at the fact she loved it. 

So I walked in Body Shop expecting to walk out with just that. But it was 3 for 2 on all skincare and makeup so I couldn't exactly say no to that. You'll never guess what else I bought.....

Lipsticks! Shocking.
Left: Pink Charming, 03. Right: Sunset Romance, 18. £10
I bought these two; both pinky shades and light than what I usually go for. I wanted to try something different. I don't think I need to go on about how much I love Body Shop lipsticks. You've got my other posts for that. But they last, they're great on the lips, they have a massive collection of colours etc... 

I haven't swatched these yet but once I've tried them out I will do. I doubt they'll disappoint. Body Shop never does. 

Heading to the til, happy with my purchases I found that I could have a free gift worth £5 or less because I'd used my loyalty 5 times. If you're an addict like me this a great must-have card. 

Immediately I knew what I wanted. I'd bought my friend a set of 3 lip balms on sale from there and had to restrain myself from buying them for myself. But with the free gift I went in search of that. Unfortunately they 'd run out. So I bought this...

Guava Body Butter, £5
The Guava Body Butter. I didn't realise how nice this smelt until I smelt it. You might think it's a weird choice but I love the smell of it. It's a sweet smell. Having had the strawberry one previously I thought I'd treat myself to this. Well it was free. I'll walk around smelling of Guava now. Yay. 

Finally I went into Boots. Over the past few months I seem to have collected quite a few Boots card points so I thought I might as well treat myself and spend some. The first thing that came into my head; nail varnishes. I haven't bought any in a while and wanted to see what was out there. 

60 Seconds, 730, Silver Bullet, £3.69

I ended up buying these Rimmel ones. It wasn't after much debate though and walking round the makeup section about a hundred times. I don't think I could pull of a white varnish but this pearly white is a great alternative. I knew I had to have it as soon as I saw it. It's a great variation and a bit more subtle. 

I then saw the Sweetie Crush collection and wondered what it was. I've never heard of it, read of it or tried it. So I thought I'd give it a go. I'm not sure if it is a new collection but why not give it a go. I picked a bit of a different shade; blue but I love experimenting and trying new things so I'll give it a go. 

Sweetie Crush, 12, Blueberry Whizz, £3.99
They also had a two for one offer on Rimmel cosmetics and I was going to buy the Kate Moss lipstick but they didn't have any different shades which I liked. They always have offers on makeup and that's the best time to buy it. So head down to a Boots store now if need anything. 

That was a quick haul of beauty/skincare items I bought last week. Let me know if you've tried or want to try any of these items. If you've done any hauls lately leave me some links, I'd love to see what you've been buying. 

Happy Shopping x
