So I may have done a little bit of beauty shopping last week. I was good and only got things that I had on my list. Ever since doing a spending ban i've been really careful to not buy things I don't 'need' and I think i'm doing pretty well.
I'll start with the few bits from The Body Shop. They had 30% off online so I repurchased the Aloe Protective Serum as i've been mixing it with an oil at night which has worked really well for my skin. Another repurchase is the Camomile Cleansing Butter as I love these types of cleansers in the colder months; this one is great value for money too. I thought I would try the Insta Blur All In One primer as I have heard good things. I've been using this for about a week and I will say the texture is a little odd but it does seem to help keep things in place.
I had heard that Herbal Essences has brought out a range of dry shampoos so I picked up the Volume one. I've used this once and i'm not sure how I feel about it. Expect a review after some more testing. Something that has been love at first spray is the Urban Fudge Iced Raspberry and Vanilla Hairspray. This stuff smells seriously amazing and it's also a pretty decent hairspray which doesn't feel crunchy in the hair.
I ended up picking up another Revlon Colorstay Moisture Stain, this is the shade New York Scene which is a lovely deep, berry toned red. I can see myself wearing this a lot in Winter. I also thought I would give the Rimmel Brow This Way in Blonde a try. I will say you seem to get a lot of product on the brush with this so I end up whipping some off and the gently applying to the brows. It works pretty well; expect a full review very soon.
The last thing I picked up is the Cocoa Brown Tough Stuff scrub. I've been loving the Cocoa Brown 1 Hour Tan so I thought I would try a sachet of the scrub to use with it.
So those are some recent beauty purchases i've made. It is my birthday and the beginning of next month so I might do a birthday haul or a post on any beauty buys I make myself. What beauty items have you bought recently?
