Beauty Haul | Soap & Glory, The Body Shop, Maybelline

I did a bit of beauty shopping last week for the first time in a while; mainly because I had actually ran out of a few bits plus it's hard to stay away when Boots have their 3 for 2 offer on. So here's what I picked up and some initial thoughts on them.

From The Body Shop I picked up their Balance Shampoo as I was in need of some clarifying as I find I can get a lot of build up in my hair. I'm trying to use up some shampoos but i'm excited to give this a go. I also got a new foot cream as working in retail full time has left me with sore feet. I've had this African Honey and Beeswax Foot Butter before and loved it. It's one of the best creams i've used.

Onto the Boots bits, I got a sachet of the Sanctuary Thermal Charcoal Mask. My skin was feeling congested and this is a great mask for that as it is warm and really deeply cleans the skin. Definitely need to get the full size. An impulse purchase was the Boots Simply Sensitive Micellar Water as I hadn't seen it before and seemed like something I would enjoy.

I was in need of a new primer to make my foundation last all day so I picked up the Soap & Glory One Heck Of A Blot as it was new and felt nice on my hand. This feels lovely on the skin and makes a nice base of makeup but i'm yet to really notice if it helps with the wear of my foundation.

These new Rimmel The Only 1 Lipsticks have been catching my eye ever since they came out. I picked up the shade Best Of The Best which is a lovely bright pink toned red. These are creamy so feel comfortable on the lips yet the colour lasts really well without bleeding or fading. Big thumbs up. I needed a new mascara so I finally decided to give the Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara a try and I have to say it's a new favourite. This lengthens really well and doesn't make my lashes look clumpy. 


So those are some recent beauty purchases. I try and not buy too much this time of year as Christmas is an expensive occasion that is getting very near, however I couldn't resists getting a few bits. What beauty purchases have you made recently?

  1. I love that mascara, definitely one of my favourites! And I think I need to order some Soap and Glory products from my parents when they visit London in a few weeks ;) My most recent beauty buy is the Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation which I'm already in love with! xx
