Spring Drugstore Haul

We all love a good drugstore haul.

There’s nothing better than popping into Boots – only intending on picking up some face-wipes or a lip balm – and coming out with a million and one things, all because you couldn’t resist that cheeky 3 for 2.

Well that happened to me last weekend and no, I couldn’t resist.


Una Brennan Superfacialist Vitamin C+ Skin Renew Cleansing Oil

Having loved the Una Brennan face masks, I knew it wouldn’t be long before I tried out a few more lovelies in this gorgeous range.

The Facial Oil Cleanser really caught my eye, as I love cleansers that help break down your makeup as well as cleanse the skin, and oils really are the best of both.

Una Brennan Superfacialist Vitamin C+ Skin Defence Daily Moisturiser

I’m a sucker for a matching cleanser/moisturiser combo, which is the sole reason I picked up the Vitamin C+ Daily Moisturiser.

With the same beautiful citrus scent, I couldn’t resist giving this a go.

Bourjois City Radiance Foundation

I’m a big fan of Bourjois bases, in particular their Healthy Mix Serum and the CC cream. This looked like a nice in-between so I thought I’d pick it up.

It looks like it has quite a sheer coverage, but I do tend to prefer that anyway, particularly when applying with a brush.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer in ‘Light Neutral’

I have a little cheat in the pile here – I realize Urban Decay definitely isn’t drugstore makeup, but I bought it on the same shopping trip and can’t resist telling you about it.

I’ve tried this before and really enjoyed it, but had the wrong shade. I picked it up in a shade lighter this time, and I can’t wait to give it a go.

Max Factor Creme Puff Blush in Nude Mauve

The Max Factor Creme Puff Blushes are another old favourite of mine, and having dropped my Nude Mauve shade on the floor it smashed everywhere – I know, tragic.

I had to pick up another and love the way this shade acts as a beautiful combination of blush and contour. Definitely look out for a feature post on this blush in the future.

Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Lip Balm in Pomegranate

Finally I picked up a Burt’s Bees lip balm on the way out – the one product I’d actually come in for.

I have never tried one of these and thought it was about time to give in to the hype. I tried it on my way home and yes, it is definitely as gorgeous as everyone says!

What have you picked up at Boots or Superdrug lately?
