Beauty Haul

I picked up a few things in Boots and Tesco that I thought I would show you. All the make up I bought I'm planning on reviewing mainly individually so I haven't included them in this haul. Lets get started because there's quite a lot to get through...

Plastic Shower Caps
Simple I know, but I'm training my hair to be washed every 3 days instead of every other day so these will be perfect for the showers in between hair washing days.

Thick Blonde Hairbands
Another simple buy, but these are metal free which means they do less damage to your hair. I'm really trying to improve the condition of my hair at the minute so any piece of advice I'm using!

Large Blonde Doughnut Ring
I used to love using these but I lost my old one and then never replaced it. Then I watched a video on LLYMLRS channel which made me want to start using one again. I can use this for work, nights out, during the day on holiday. Such a versatile item and I really like tat you can get either a messy bun or a neat bun depending on the look you're going for. Also, these are super easy to use, literally anyone can use them!

Grey and Black Hair Bands
These bands are great for when you need your hair out of the way, so for when applying makeup or a face mask, they're great! And they're really cheap which is another bonus!

No 7 Beautiful Skin Night Cream-Normal/Oily Skin
I've been after a new night cream for a while and as I had a £5 off voucher for No 7 I thought I would put it to good use and invest in one of their raved about night creams. I haven't tried it yet but I will do a little review once I've been using it for a little while.

Tea Tree Witch Hazel Blemish Stick
This blemish stick boasts to fight spots and work instantly on the skin. I had a bit of a bad breakout a couple of weeks ago and made a note to self to invest in this sort of product, and as tea tree oil is good for oily skin, I thought why not?! I haven't used this yet but I will definitely do a review as soon as I do, its always useful to know if products like this actually do what they say on the tin.

Tea Tree Witch Hazel Night Treatment Gel
This is a gel that you apply to the skin after cleansing. You don't rinse it off, instead you let it absorb into the skin. Again this purchase was due to the breakout I had, next time I want to be more prepared! This also claims to be non-greasy which is another bonus! Again, I will report back on this product (my list of product reviews is getting rather long now!).

Sanctuary Spa Body Scrub
This was a complete indulgence/spoil-myself present. I absolutely adore Sanctuary Spa, I can't describe the scent but its so unique and smells so luxury, I just love it. I have been after a new scrub for a while so I decided to treat myself as this one is very gentle yet feels like its working.

Nivea In Shower Body Moisturiser Skin Conditioner
This is a product I have been waiting to try for ages now. Ever since its release I have wanted to give it a go but for whatever reason never bought it. Until now! It was on offer in Tesco so I very quickly snapped it up. I haven't tried this one yet either but I know I won't be able to wait very long to try it so a review should be on its way very soon.

Nivea Smooth Nourishing Hand Cream
Its that time of year again where the hands on my skin just breaks down constantly. Where the skin on my face is very oily, my hands are very dry and because I am constantly washing my hands at work, its important for me to keep them moisturised. At the minute they are extremely cracked and really sore, so it was time to invest in a good hand cream. This one was on offer, and I really like Nivea hand creams so why not?!

So there we have it, quite a variety of products but I have been waiting a while to get most of them. Most of these I bought in Boots except for the Nivea items.
Has anyone else tried any of my new buys? Or has anyone found any little gems in recent splurges?


  1. I love the no7 day cream so I look forward to hearing how you get on with the night cream too
