Boots Haul!

Helloooo everyone, I was very naughty recently and went for a big spend in boots on payday much to the dismay of my bank balance and I thought I'd just share with you some of the things I bought.
Now let me start by saying there are probably no words to describe my love for boots, it's like some weird obsession. I get completely swept away by new products, 3 for 2's, the BOGOF's, I just love it. All the products in this haul except for the foundation were included in a 3 for 2 or buy one get one half price offer so I managed to save about £25.00 and collect a lot of those advantage card points!

So without further a do this is what I purchased....


Left to Right: Beautiful Skin eye makeup remover RP £8.50, Essential Moisture day cream for normal/dry skin RP £9.00, Beautiful Skin cleansing water normal/oily RP £9.00
Now if you shop at Boots as much as I do you are probably aware of the copius amounts of No.7 vouchers you can pick up after a shop. I know so many people who throw these away but I'm actually a big fan of No.7 products so I always make a point of holding on to them and seeing what discounts I can get when I'm in there. Currently all the No.7 skin care products are on 3 for 2 so I had a look and I found these. On the left is the eye make up remover, now I rarely purchase these and just rely on my cleansers but I forever wake up with panda eyes where I've missed little bits. I have already tried this and I really like it, for £8.50 it is a little pricey but a little goes a long way, it fully removes all eye makeup even waterproof, and was actually free in the deal as it was the cheapest item. The next one is the essential moisture day cream, I'm actually yet to try this product as I still haven't used up my other face creams. I decided on this one as I do tend to get a bit of a dry face from over doing the exfoliation occasionally so I will do a mini review once I've tried it. And finally I picked up the cleansing water for normal/oily skin, now I chose this because I liked the idea that it was a water rather than a cleansing cream which I've used before and found it tends to be a bit thick and takes ages to soak in. I much prefer the water, it takes off my make up really easily and leaves my skin feeling fresh.

Soap and Glory 

Left to Right: Girligo body moisturising mist RP £6.50, Sugar Crush body scrub RP £8.00, Foam Call body wash RP £6.50
I know soap and glory gets reviewed a lot on beauty blogs so most of you will already know about their products. On the left is the Girligo moisturising body mist, this I havent tried before. I've read a few reviews that have described it as not a must have item but a nice one to have in your collection and I think I agree. It does smell amazing like all of the soap and glory products and It is really refreshing to spritz on the skin, it also appears to moisturise well so there are no real issues with the product it's just not a 'must have'. The next soap and glory buy is the sugar crush body scrub which I've purchased before and I adore it. It has a really strong punch of lime, smells gorgeous and leaves your skin feeling lovely and soft. Lastly is the Foam Call body wash, again this is one of the body washes I havent tried before and am yet to give it ago as I'm waiting to run out of my current body wash but again I'm sure I'll give it a mini review when I get round to using it.

Tony & Guy

Tony&Guy cleanse and nourish shampoo and conditioner for dry hair RP £5.99 each
Now I have heard great things about these bad boys, so I am super excited to try these. I've been resisting the urge like a weirdo as I've still got a lot of my shampoo left but I will definitely be letting you know how I get on as my hair is very hard to please!

Rimmel London

Left to Right: Kate Moss matte lipsticks in 107 and 110 RP £5.49,  Salon Pro by Kate nail polish in Soul Session RP £4.49
I am a huge fan of the Rimmel London Kate Moss range, especially the matte lipsticks. I picked these two as I am yet to have them in my collection  and I felt they were nice summery colours. The 107 reminds me of red wine and I've been wearing it a lot since I've bought it. The 110 is more of a coral/pink colour which I also love, I'd say it's probably more suited to day wear than the 107 if you're going for a more natural look but both are gorgeous and they smell of water melon. I know smell isn't really important in a lipstick but I feel this is a nice bonus! And on the right is the Salon Pro by Kate, this is a really lovely mink kind of colour which is exactly what I've been looking for. I'm useless when it comes to nails as I always knock them and get inpatient waiting for them to dry, but this was really quick drying and so far so good, no chipping!

Rimmel London volume flash scandaleyes mascara RP £6.99

Recently I ran out of my Clarins mascara which I wasn't a huge fan of so I decided to look for a high street brand and see how I got on. I picked up the Scandaleyes mascara, I have to admit I haven't used it long enough to give a decent review (It usually takes me a while to make a decision). So far I'm not wowed by this mascara and am slightly regretting not picking up the new flexi-brush, however saying that its not awful. The brush is really big to give that volume and it does do exactly that but it doesn't really appear to lift my eyelashes or make them look longer. It's also quite gloopy which I'm not massively keen on as I often find theres too much on the brush.


Yves Saint Laurent Teint Resist radience foundation in shade 7 RP £31.00
I mentioned this foundation a while a go in my everyday makeup post so I won't go on too much. This is probably my favourite high end foundation, as I've said before I love YSL makeup and its forever my high end go to. I re-purchased this product as my other one has started to struggle pumping out foundation indicating its on its way out, so I wanted to be prepared. I would highly recommend people to try this if they are looking for a full coverage foundation as it gives such a flawless look.


Nivea pearl and beauty anti-perspirant RP £2.10

Boots cosmetic oval pads RP £1.89
Last but not least, the essentials! I was in need of a new deoderant and haven't tried the Nivea pearl and beauty. To be honest I was drawn to this one because it looked quite cute and girly (for a deoderant). So far no complaints, it does the job and for £2.10 you can't go wrong. And I was running short of cosmetic pads so picked these up in the buy one get one half price. I like the big ones as they cover more of your face and you seem to get more of your moneys worth. 

I hope you enjoyed my little haul, please tell me what you thought.. Have you tried any of these products? Or do you have any recommendations? I'd love to know so please leave me a comment!

  1. I really want to try out the Girligo Moisture Mist because it sounds great and refreshing for Summer! And the Kate Moss lipsticks you got are both super pretty shades :)

  2. Yeah its got a really nice scent and is nice and light, might do a review on it as not too many people have been that keen as its not a must have but for summer I've found it so helpful. The lipsticks will definitely be making it into my July favourites, I've been wearing them non stop! x
