Haul Time!

It's been a little while since I posted a recent haul post so I thought today I would show you all the things I've picked up over the last two months. I have to say it has mainly been skincare that I've purchased as I've been on a mission to use up some of makeup and nail polishes that I already own, because let's face it, there is only so much you can use on a day to day basis.























I have picked up some things from the Good Things range which those with beady eyes will remember that I featured the cleanser in my July Favourites. I chose these because I'm aware that they're free from parabens, sulphates, mineral oil and animal ingredients which is something I'm finding myself looking for more and more often these days. I've being used these two together and whilst I really like the Creamy Cleanser I'm not completely sold on the Deep Pore Anti Blemish Lotion as of yet; further testing is required.

I was incredibly lucky to find the Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel in a makeup store up town from where I live. This shop is a bit like Fragrance Direct but in shop form, it's really quite good. I picked this up for just £12.99, what a bargain! It's all sealed up so I've decided not to open it just yet until I've used up some other bits and bobs lying around.

I picked up a new clay mask from the Superfacialist Tea Flower range by Una Brennan as I found myself needing a new one after a new one I was trying by the Yes to Tomatoes range started to sting my face, yikes! So far I really like this mask as I've found it clears out my pores pretty well leaving me with a noticeable difference in my skin once I've used it.

I picked up just yesterday the Simple Eye Make Up remover as the Clarins one I was using has finally run its course, leaving me with a tiny sample of the Clinique Take The Day Off eye makeup remover which has also nearly all gone. I'm not quite sure if I've ever tried this but for £2 I'm not too fussed, I wanted something cheap and cheerful to pick up during my lunch break.

My next product also only cost me £2 as it was a freebie with Glamour magazine. I love a good freebie; let's face it, who doesn't? Balance Me are one of my favourite brands so once I saw their products free with the magazine again this year I headed straight for them. I picked up the body wash and the lip balm which I somehow missed from photographing for this post. I've yet to use the body wash but like all Balance Me products I've high hopes.

The last product I picked up was the Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch Highlighting Concealer. I've read that this is a dupe for the YSL Touché Eclat Radiant Touch which is lovely however quite expensive, therefore I'll be seeing how I get on with this.


Maybelline is not a cruelty free brand.

    I didn't get on with the Simple eye make-up remover at all, it stung my eyes so badly, hope you have better luck!

  9. I love the una brenan moisture range! I think the green range would be too drying for me but i definitely want to try a clay mask, any other recommendations?

  11. I'm going to have to cut back on the amount I spend on skincare for a bit when I move, so I'm hoping to try out some of the Superfacialist products. Have you tried the cleansing oil? I've got my eye on that!
    I've fancied trying that Elemis mask for ages now but never got round to it - what a bargain! Looking forward to seeing how it compares to the Ren Glyco mask.

    I wish I could find Balance Me products in Canada. I've heard nothing but great things about their products and the packaging is so simple too.
