We all love our good deals, right? Well, today I innocently popped into Boots for a browse when I stumbled across some Christmas offers I just couldn’t miss out on. It’s a very festive time of year when shoppers seem to go a little bit crazy, but I battled my way through and with the current offer of triple points on advantage cards when you spend over £35, how could I resist? Yes, that is a cheeky box of Maltesers. Does anyone else think they taste so much better from a box rather than a standard packet? Enjoying rummaging through my basket, you may notice I didn’t buy one single item of makeup. I can’t quite believe it. I think i’m feeling OK.
The offer I was most pleased about was on Origins skincare. I recently bought their bestselling GinZing Eye Cream (£20) and it’s the best i’ve ever used. So, I have been keen to try the GinZing Energy-boosting Moisturiser because it promises similar effects, to brighten dull skin and to create a healthy glow. Its oil free formula would work perfectly with my naturally very oily skin. It’s usually £24 just for the moisturiser *hyperventilates*. But, it was only £25 for the full size moisturiser, Drink Up-Intensive Overnight Mask, Modern Friction Facial Scrub and GinZing Refreshing Scrub Cleanser. Yes, it is wrapped as a gift you would usually give to someone, but it’s a present to me, from me. I was so happy with this deal! I couldn’t find it online so I assume it’s only in selected stores. Let my skin be forever happy.
Another exciting deal I just had to share with you was 3 for 2 across all makeup brushes including the ever so gorgeous Real Technique Bold Metal Collection ones. As you may know, I am giving away a three piece Bold Metals Collection Set (you can enter that here) and I was very sad to do so because I wanted some for myself! So, I treated myself to two brushes and got the third free! These included the 301 Flat Contour (£22), perfect for the baking method I’ve been loving recently or for a structured contour, the 201 Pointed Crease (£12) , great for blending a feature shade in the outer corner of the lid and the Retractable Kabuki Brush (£11.99), a good all rounder that can be used to apply foundation, bronzer or blush.
And finally, you’re all going to love me. After countless comments on my very popular Nivea Men Post Shave Balm Primer Test video requesting I buy the sensitive version rather than the original because it contains no alcohol in it, I finally did. If you’re new here, you may be wondering why the hell I use Mens post shave balm. No, I do not shave my face. The Glycerine in the product basically acts as a primer because it creates a base between the skin and the makeup, making it last longer. It really does work! I had to buy the sensitive because I am using it every day and the less alcohol we use on our skin the better. It’s so ageing and drying.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Please make sure you enter my giveaway and i’ll see you again tomorrow with my usual Sunday video!
