Boots Haul

It's been a while since I posted a haul on here so I thought I'd share with you my post recent purchases from Boots. Please note that these purchases were not all in one go, they're a few things put together which I've picked up over the last three months.

Boots Haul

A while ago the Hydraulon Moisture Booster was on offer in Boots for roughly £16 instead of its full retail price of £25. I had read so many good things about this product for months and months that when the opportunity arose to pick it up cheaper I found myself struggling to resist. I have to say that once again the hype of a beauty blogger cult product really has been proven as this really is a fantastic product; I cannot recommend it enough. A further more in depth review is to come of this as it has dramatically improved the condition of my skin.

Next up is the Dr Jart Water Fuse BB Beauty Balm which at the time of purchase was on offer for £12. I actually used my Boots points to buy this as I had just enough to buy it, yay! It is quite a nice product and blends rather nicely onto my skin leaving a nice finish; I would however like to try it for longer before I completely make my mind up on it.

During July I found myself coming to the end of my OPI Nail Envy which I liked but never found myself seeing results to warrant the shocking price of £18.65. I'm aware that you can pick it up for cheaper off the likes of Amazon yet the truth remains that it is still quite a pricey product. I decided to go for the Essie Grow Stronger nail treatment instead so we shall see how that goes.

I have being thinking of buying the Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm for a long time now (you all know which one) yet I just couldn't spend that amount of money on one product in one go, therefore I opted for the much cheaper Botanics Cleansing Balm. This was on offer for £6.99 and having enjoyed the original formula of this I thought it would be worth a try. I have to say despite it changing for what some said the worse I do happen to be enjoying using it.

Last but not least was the one product I knew I was going to splurge on a little. I had wanted to try Origins for such a long time therefore once I started reading fantastic reviews of the GinZing Moisturiser I knew this would be the product to go for. It is a gel moisturiser which I do tend to prefer as these make my skin feel really nice compared to a lot of creams which can make my skin feel greasy. Priced at £23 this was expensive to me yet it was something I had being wanting to pick up for a while.

  1. I love hydraluron but I hate how quickly it runs out! :( The dr Jart bb cream sounds wonderful, does it come in different shades?

    1. I can see what you mean, it does seem to go so fast unless that's a subconscious thing reminding us how expensive it is therefore we need to be frugal haha!

      The BB Cream is in only one shade as far as I'm aware, it's said to adapt to all skin tones although I think it would be too dark for really pale people.
