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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
