Haul | Boots, The Body Shop & Other Stories

Two haul post in one week!? Well as part of my birthday present my Mum took me to London for the day and of course some shopping happened. Some of these bits are from London as well as a few recent trips to Boots. 
Every time I go to London I always make a trip to & Other Stories, my favourite thing by them is their bath products. Last time I picked up the Fig Body Scrub which is amazing so this time I thought I would try the Lemon Daydream Body Scrub and the Body Wash. Both of these smell amazing and I can't wait to start using them. 
We also made a trip to The Body Shop and they had a 3 for 2 on. The main thing I wanted to try was the Camomile Cleansing Butter because I wanted to try something new after my Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm runs out. The other bits I picked up is the Tea Tree Pore Minimizer which i've wanted to try for a long time, i've used this a few times now and I really love it. The other thing is the Tea Tree Blemish Face Night Lotion because my current serum is running out. I also renewed my rewards card and got a free shower gel.  
A few weeks ago I picked up the Dr Jart Water Fuse BB Cream whilst it was a 1/3 off in Boots, I've used this a few times and I really like it because it feels so light on the skin. Boots currently have a buy one get one half price on all makeup so I picked up the Revlon Nearly Naked Powder because I also had £2 off Revlon. I also got the L'oreal Lumi Magique Foundation, both of these I really like so far and i've find they work really well together.
On another trip to Boots I also picked up some of the new Seventeen base products, all their new release looked really good but the ones that stood out to me were the Stay Time Long Wear Primer and the Phwoarr Paint (love the name) Under Eye Concealer. I've been on the hunt for a good drugstore primer and this one seem promising, the under eye concealer seems very comparable to Benefit Erase Paste so i'm excited to see if it is.

So those are my recent beauty purchases, i'm going to try and slow down on the beauty spending because I am in need of some new clothes for Autumn and Winter. What beauty purchases have you made recently?


  1. Great buys! Hope you had a lovely birthday x

  2. Boots has been far too tempting lately with their offers! I like the sound of that revlon powder, I might have a look when I'm next in town
