Birthday Haul

So I turned 21 on the 4th of September (damn i'm getting old!) and I thought it would be nice to share the few beauty bits I got for my birthday. I did get mostly money from relatives but I asked my Dad to get me some beauty products that I had my eye on for a while.
My best friend knows me so well, she got me some Soap & Glory bits. First up one of my favourite shower gels, Sugar Crush, as well as Pulp Friction which I literally just used up. As well as Scrub 'Em and Leave 'Em which i've never tried but I love a good scrub and it smells lovely. 
I've been wanting to try the Bumble & Bumble Surf range for ages, I was planning on getting the travel set but that was sold out everywhere. So instead my Dad got me a mini Surf Spray and the full size of the Surf Foam Wash Shampoo, so far I really like both but expect a review soon. They also threw in a sample of the Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner which i've also wanted to try for a while.
I recently tried a sample of the Pai Kukai and Jojaba Bead Skin Brightening Exfoliator so I asked for the full size, I also got the sample set Pai do because I wanted to try a few different bits from the brand. I also got the Balance Me Radiance Face Oil in the rollerball form because i've heard this is great for blemishes so I thought it would be good to give a go since i've really been into oils lately.

I got the Super Facialist By Una Brennan Vitamin C Brightening Cleansing Oil because i've wanted to try a cleansing oil for a while now and this one sounded good, plus i've been wanting to try products from this range for a while. The last beauty bit my Dad was very kind to get me might be my favourite my very first Chanel lipstick! it is the Chanel Rouge Coco in Cambon and is a lovely cherry red shade. I'm so in love with this lipstick, it is almost too pretty to use! 

As part of my present my Mum took me to London and we did some shopping, she also got me a lovely bracelet and these boots from Topshop. I've been on the hunt for some new brown boots and lets just say it was love at first sight when I saw these. They're real leather, super comfortable and cost £45 (I got student discount of course) which I thought was a good deal. I can see these not leaving my feet all Winter. 

So that's my birthday haul, I got some other bits too but I thought people would be most interested in the beauty bits. What beauty purchases have you made recently?
