It's been a while since I posted a haul, it's been a while since I posted at all really but I'd rather not dwell on that! I forget when I buy things to take note of what I buy and collect it all together to do a haul post for the blog but this month I purchases these items all around the same time with some extras purchased this afternoon so I thought why not stick a haul post up?
I recently discovered Caroline Hirons and I feel like it has changed my life, extreme I know. I don't know about anybody else but I know that I personally find skin care such a confusing subject with one product saying one thing and somebody else saying another. Skin care is one of those areas that you just have to dive into and find what works for you - but it's nice to have simple advice and tips that you can use to get you started. I've always had a skincare routine but I've felt it was lacking and my hyper-pigmentation was really getting to me, so I felt like it was time for a routine revamp with some new products.
I've seen the Indeed Labs products on a few blogs now and they really interested me - I didn't think I'd be able to find them in my local boots as it's pretty rubbish but I was suprised to find they were there and they were on 3 for 2 (still are) - bonus!! I purchased Pepta Bright, which is meant to fade pigmentation and brighten the skin, Hydraluron, a gel containing hyaluronic acid which can attract up to 1000 times it's weight in water to keep skin hydrated and plump, and Eysilix - an eye rescue cream. I plan to review all of these in full as I think skincare can be such a blurry field - the more reviews the better!
I returned to Boots today as I've been having a bit of a 'meh' day and I thought some pampering and retail therapy was in order - I wandered around aimlessly but as soon as I spied some offers, I was soon filling my arms with products. My They're Real mascara has gone really funky recently and I just don't know why - its gone from being a bit on the dry side to being really gloopy and cakey so I just can't use it therefore I needed a new mascara. I picked up the new Maybelline Mega Plush mascara as I thought the gel formula and the packaging were both rather funky - these mascaras are on introductory offer with £2 off at £5.99 - I'll let you know what I think! I thought, but maybe I was wrong, that it was buy one get one free on Maybelline products so I picked up a Color Tattoo Eye Shadow as I've heard great things everywhere about these - but it didn't come free, never mind! I also picked up a Rimmel Scandal Eyes pencil as I think the Clinique ones look lush, this is a gorgeous colour and I can't wait to use it, it's going to be beautiful for the summer.
There is currently an offer on it Boots where all Lee Stafford Argan products are 3 for £20 - I find Lee Stafford products rather pricey for what they are but I made a saving of £17 on this offer so I'm definitely not complaining! I picked up the Deep Repair Mask, Nourishing Miracle Oil and the Argan Oil Shampoo!
Am I the only one who spends copious amounts of money online because I see no money handed over and then receive presents to my door? As I mentioned earlier I decided to purchase some new skincare so I went over to the Space NK website and ordered the Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm - as recommended by Caroline and the REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal mask - as recommended by well, everyone. Also as summer is coming up I picked up a Kevyn Aucoin cream blush in Euphoria -which is a nice terracotta colour, instead of using a powder blush this summer, I thought that a cream blush would look more natural and radiant.
I'm really pleased with all the products I picked up this month but I certainly won't be doing anymore spending! Today I also picked up some MOM jeans in Topshop for £15 which I am literaly over the moon about - I've wanted some for so long!
Do you have any of these products? What are you thoughts?
