Huge Beauty Haul

This is probably the biggest haul that I have ever posted on this blog before. I guess you could say that i went a little crazy this month and spent a huge chunk of my wages on beauty products though for 90% of the products mentioned I didn't pay full price (does that make it any better for my bank balance though?!?!). Most of the products that I bought this month were skincare related though there are one or two makeup items thrown in as well.

This is going to be a long post so don't want to ramble on for too long, so, onto the haul!




Boots:

Superfacialist by Una Brennan Pore Purifying Clay Mask (£6.66 reduced from £9.99) - I'd heard a lot of great things about the products from this range and whilst reading reviews on this particular product noticed that it was on offer at Boots I jumped at the chance to give this a try. A mask is the one product that my skincare routine is lacking so I'm sure this will make a fab addition to my routine.

Loreal Infallible 24h-Matte Foundation in the shade '11/vanilla' (£7.99 - bought as part of a '2 for £12' offer) - This foundation has had a huge hype surrounding it lately so of course I had to give it a try for myself. I decided on the shade '11/Vanilla' which from first impressions looks as if it'll be a very close match for my skin. I cannot wait to try this out! (£7.99 - 2 for £12 on Loreal products)

Loreal False Lash Architect Mascara (£10.99 - bought as part of a '2 for £12' offer) - This is a product that I've purchased in the past but never got around to picking it up a new one. I do remember absolutely loving the way that it left my lashes looking, both volumised and lengthened!

Maybelline Dr Rescue Gel Effect Top Coat (£2.99)- This is the only product featured in this post that I payed full price for (can you believe that?!) and for £2.99 this hardly broke the bank! I picked this up on a whim as I was looking for a new top coat for my nails and think the gel finish is an added bonus.



Superdrug:

Superdrug Simply Pure Hydrating Serum (£1.79 reduced from £2.69) - Whilst on the hunt for an affordable serum I looked to the incredibly trustworthy Sali Hughes who recommended this one from Superdrug. At full price it costs a mere £2.69, but got it for an even smaller price of £1.79 which is absolutely amazing!


Superdrug Simply Pure Light Moisturiser Sensitive Skin (£1.79 reduced from £2.69) - Another product from Superdrug's own brand is this moisturiser. After reading it's description   it seemed like a good day time moisturiser to layer under makeup. 


Garnier Skin Naturals Micellar Cleansing Water Mini (£1.32 - introductory price) - I love the original version of this, but decided to pick this one up to take away with me when I go on holiday this month.


Simple Clear Skin Oil Balancing Moisturiser (£2.09 reduced from £4.25) - I am currently using an oil-free moisturiser from Neutrogena (here) and thought this sounded similar and was worth trying out!


Simple Kind to Skin Purifying Cleansing Lotion (£1.59 reduced from £3.29) - This product was actually a repurchase as this is something I've used and loved in the past.


Simple Micellar Face Wipes (£1.95 reduced from £3.99 but came free when buying any other product from Simple so ended up getting two packs for free!) - I don't often use wipes but like to have a pack around for removing things such as swatches or heavy eye makeup before going in with my usual hot cloth cleanse.


St Ives Blemish Fighting Apricot Scrub (£2.65 reduced from £3.99) - Another product that my skincare routine is lacking is a good scrub and I had heard a lot of people mention how good this particular one was so decided it was time to give it a go!





The Body Shop:

Aloe Soothing Day Cream (£6.60 reduced from £11) - I first tried this moisturiser out a few months ago and fell in love with it! It's perfect for applying under makeup and instantly hydrates the skin without leaving it looking greasy.

Vitamin E Face Mist (£5.10 reduced from £8.50) - I picked this product up after seeing Victoria from InTheFrow using it to hydrate the skin as well as to set her makeup.

Pink Grapefruit Shower Gel (Free when spending over £10) - This shower gel came free with my order but will come in handy when I go on holiday at the end of this month as it is a mini version!


Congratulations if you made it through the entirety of this post as it was a big one!! Which products do you like the sound of?
