HUGE Boots Haul! Simple, Clinique, Benefit & More!
I went a little cray cray at Boots – have a nosey in my basket and see what I bought.
Benefit Gimme Brow – £18.50
I have had my eye on this product for a while but I took the plunge and was sold as soon as the assistant applied the product onto my bare brows. The teeny tiny brush effortlessly covers each hair and instantly gave my brows a fuller appearance – well worth the money!
Nivea Men Replenishing Post Shave Balm – £5.25
Quite a strange purchase – no? I have heard that the ‘Glycogenin’ in this product is the perfect ingredient to act as a primer and it is in fact used in all primers. ‘Glycogenin’ creates a sticky barrier between the skin and the makeup; in my opinion, a super cheap primer that I can’t wait to test out!
Simple Oil Balancing Facial Scrub – A repurchase! –
This beauty was half price today at Boots – bloody good timing as I had just ran out of the previous bottle. I use this product around 3 times a week, or just when I feel my skin needs a good scrub. It keeps my completion well balanced and the oil at bay. As it’s Simple it is very gentle on my skin and I feel like it takes very little effort to apply.
Botanics Invigorating Face Scrub Shine Away –
This product was also half price today at Boots. I think it will give me similar effects to the Simple Oil Balancing Facial Scrub but at a cheap ___, I would rather purchase this one if it provides the same effects.
Tea Tree Witch Hazel Cleansing and Toning Lotion and Foaming Face Wash – Both repurchases! – Both £3.59
These two products have been a skin changer for me. Before using these, my break outs were unpredictable and my t-zone was very oily, but I definitely feel that they are things of the past. I used the Foaming Face Wash on my Clinique Sonic Brush and then I apply the Cleanser on a couple of cotton wool pads; I do this nightly.
Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes – £3.25
An oldey but a goody. They feel very luxurious and get the majority of my makeup off without leaving me feeling like a greasy monster.
Clinique Anti-Blemish Solutions Cleansing Gel (£18), Anti-Blemish Solutions Moisturiser (£20) and Stay-matte Oil Free Makeup (£22.50) and Bonus Time – A couple of repurchases
I have bought the moisturiser and foundation continuously and I absolutely love them. The moisturiser works with my oily skin, preventing yucky breakouts and blemishes whilst the foundation keeps my skin oil free during the day – a huge struggle of mine once upon a time.
In fact, the Bonus Time was the whole reason I went into Boots. If you aren’t aware of what Clinique Bonus Time is, they hold a promotion around various stores during different times of the year where if you buy two or more products (one makeup and one skincare) you get a whole bunch for free.
This Bonus Time included:
♥ New Turnaround Overnight Revitalizing Moisturizer – Delivers the energy infusion skin needs to optimise nighttime renewal.
♥ Turnaround Daytime Revitalizing Moisurizer in Rosy Glow – Instantly delivers a fresh, luminous, wide-awake glow.
♥ Liquid Facial Soap Mild – For a clear start.
♥ All About Shadow Duo in Beach Plum – Perfectly-paired shades for an effortless eye look.
♥ Chubby Stick Baby Tiny Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm in Flowering Freesia – A bit of colour, a hefty helping of moisture.
♥ High Impact Mascara in Black – Effortlessly lusher, plushers, bolder lashes.
♥ A handy tin to keep all the lovely bits in.
*This Bonus Time is on offer in all Boots stores across the UK until 15th August*.
I mentioned the Eyeshadow Duo and the Chubby Stick in my July favourites but not for good reason. I began a ‘oh hell no’ addition onto my favourites for a chance to let you know which products I don’t like I would never repurchase and unfortunately those two made that list.
Thank you so much for nosing into my basket – until next time!
