Boots always breaks my bank account...
I am not blaming them, but I always get carried away. On this particular visit I did have a wee shopping list in my hand and I achieved to grab everything I needed... with some other treats. Here is a breakdown of everything I bought.
Soap & Glory always seem to have a 3for2 offer on when I go in store, so I had to have a look at all their beauty products - including the Sugar Crush products that some other beauty bloggers have been raving about.
The smell of the Sugar Crush products is intense. Laced with the heavenly scent of lime - one of my favourite smells on this planet. I am a huge fan of the Soap & Glory body scrubs and I just cannot wait to get stuck into this tub. With the body wash, this will be one Soap & Glory product that I have not tried. But it is always good to try and find new beauty products that will help soften your skin and make you feel good.
When it comes to bath products I usually stick to my favourites from Lush, but I was intrigued by this Bath Float from Soap & Glory. The product looks like liquid heaven. It has a slight resemblance to the haunted goo that is in Ghostbusters - but more of a baby pink colour haha. It suggests that you "scoop up a handful... and swirl it under warm running water..." and I just can't wait to soak in it.
Now this may shock a few of you, but this is the first time that I have ever bought (or used) ESSIE nail polish. I have wanted to try it for a while now, but my nail polish collection was a bit ridiculous so I didn't want to add to it until I cleared out some of the older polish that has turned. I wanted to replace my white polish, so I went for the whitest shade that ESSIE had to offer - "Blanc". I am also a fan of grey nail polish, so I grabbed "Master Plan" too. I applied the grey shade when I got home and I was pleasantly surprised with the pigment of the polish and the quality of two coats.
I used to try different styles of nail art - polka dot, leopard print, daisies... etc. - but I have not done any nail art for a long time. I thought I would grab one of the WAH London nail art pens to give it a whirl and see what exciting designs I can create. I think I am going to go simple to begin with - perhaps some stripes.
For removing nail polish, I always rely on Sally Hansen Polish Removers. This time around I opted for the moisturising remover for dry, brittle nails because since I had my nails painted with Shellac they have been quite damaged so I need to change that.
These products were half price in Boots, so I grabbed a few of them to stock up (at £1.84ea. do you blame me?). This daily intimate wash is perfect for all women. They are specially designed with a low pH formula to help maintain a healthy pH balance. It is soothing for your skin and it is dermatologically and gynaecologically tested to make us women happy.
These are just a few things that I needed to grab. I realised that I needed to replace my long lost lip pencil sharpener and get some more of these really handy snag free ponybands - which are perfect for top knots. I am also getting sick of using about 4 or 5 bobby pins to hold up a small section of hair, so I grabbed a pack of these because I needed something with a bit more hold for my hair and I am very impressed with theses bobby pins - although, they are more like slides.
I am so glad that I sticked up on all this stuff, but now I need to find somewhere to house them all. I can't wait to try all these products out and share my thoughts with you all.
Have you tried any of these products out? Let me know your thoughts.
