Beauty Haul - Boots, The Body Shop .....

I have been buying so much recently! I was off work ill and I took to the internet, online shopping! I have also been visiting Boots far too often and basically not being firm enough with myself. I haven't been writing haul posts though! I'm not sure why, maybe I think it won't count if I don't post it! A lot of products have slipped through the net but I'm sure they will show up in future posts. This post is a little sale order from The Body Shop, a few things from Boots and some random bits that I have managed to track down from my mad spending!


The random things first of all! The Seventeen product was bought along with several other products but I can't seem to remember which ones!

Seventeen Skin Wow 3 Way Highlighter £5.99

The idea of this is that it can be used as a primer, highlight or mixed with your foundation for a more shimmery look. I plan to use this as a highlight as I can imagine it being a bit too disco-ball like for all over the face.

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk £4.49

This product is so raved about that I felt it was finally time to try it. I picked this up from an eBay shop so I'm not sure what the official retail price is, although I think it's similar to what I paid and I got free shipping.

Urban Decay 24/7 Concealer Pencil in M16

I have this in the lightest shade and absolutely love it! I use it everyday to highlight and especially to brighten the under eye area. Recently I have been experimenting with cream contouring using concealers and decided to try this in the darkest shade available, M16.

Next up, a few boring items from Boots!

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge £5.99

This is the reson I was in the shop in the first place! This is a repurchase and an absolute favourite of mine. I have been using my sponge daily and love the flawless finish it gives. I decided to repurchase because mine has seen better days!

Botanics Soothing Eye Makeup Remover £2.66

I had a voucher for 100 extra points when you bought any Botanics product and so I found myself browsing the range! I bought this eye makeup remover because I'm running low on my current one and fancied trying something new.

Collection Sheer Loose Powder £2.99

I love watching Wayne Goss makeup videos and recently I saw the one where he recommends powder under foundation to make it last longer! I have been trying it but he suggested a loose powder over a pressed one and I realised that was something I didn't have! This is just a translucent powder and I usually like Collection powders so hopefully I will have success with this one!

Natural Collection Blush in Sugar Plum £1.99

This is another shameless point-voucher purchase! I had a coupon for 50 points with any Natural Collection product so I just had to pick one up! I have other shades of these blushes and really like them so I knew I couldn't go wrong with this!

I rarely ever buy anything from The Body Shop. In fact, I can't really remember buying anything from there! I fancied trying the Camomile Cleasning Butter after hearing such good things and whilst on the website I noticed 40% off everything and couldn't resist!

Ginger Anti-Dandruff Shampoo £4.50

I have never thought to look in The Body Shop for a shampoo but this looks lovely so I picked one up. Recently my scalp has been a little dry and irritated and so hopefully this can do something to restore it.

Camomile Cleansing Butter £12

This was my reason for putting in the order and I can't wait to try this product out. Recently I have just been mad for skincare and wanting to try new things. I saw this in the You Beauty Discovery box but it was out of stock so I decided to buy one anyway!

Strawberry Lip Butter £4

I remember having one of these lip butters in the past and really enjoying it. I also love the strawberry scent and so grabbed one of these whilst on 40% off.

Vitamin C Facial Radiance Capsules £15

I think the excitement of placing an online order may have got me slightly carried away ...... I don't even know what these are for, I just liked the packaging. I shall find out though!

Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion £9

I couldn't place my order without ordering something tea tree! I have been meaning to get some night products for a while as currently I just use the same ones.

All prices are before discount.

If you would like any full reviews, please comment and I will do my best.
