Spending Pennies | Boots




I am a massive boots addict as you will all know, so recently I went on a little trip to stock up on some of my favourites and some things that I haven't tried, or had heard good things about, and I thought I'd share them with you. If you are not from the UK then Boots is basically a massive drugstore that pretty much every beauty addict loves including myself.

When I'm in boots I like to have a proper look at everything, and by everything I literally mean everything, I grabbed all of this stuff in just under an hour which for me, is extremely rare. I wanted to purchase Items that promised quite a lot and I want to see if it's actually true or just a bit of a gimmick. I also just wanted to purchase some things as I'd either run out or just liked the look of it too. 




Love at First Blush - whilst having a little look at the S&G (Soap & Glory) I came across a few new items (more on that in another post soon) and a good old favourite of mine and that's the Love At First Blush Blusher, It's basically a little compact with 5 very pretty rosy & peachy toned blushes and a little pretty white highlighting powder, now I love the colour of this it's one that can easily be built up, It's very easy to blend, I like how this is a bit of a 2 in 1 product, as the pearl white powder works as a bit of a highlight. I also love the size of the mirror as its ideal, This is one of them products that I think a lot of people like but some people don't, I on the hand LOVE it, hence why I repurchased it, as I have bought it before and did really enjoy it. I've had so many people say to me "What blusher have you got on?" as it leaves quite a natural rosy look as well as a bit of a highlighted effect, I'd highly recommend this. It's one of them products that I feel like every girl should own in their makeup bag or collection, it's just stunning.

Real Techniques Blond Metals Collection Blush Brush 300 - I bought another RT brush too add to my ever growing collection of make up brushes hahaha. It's a tapered blush brush, it gives a really precise application of any blush and is honestly the softest brush ever, all of RT brushes are such beautiful quality. Please excuse the fact that the brush is dirty, I got to tempted as to how beautiful it was and used it before taking the photos.



I picked up two Sanctuary products including one which I'm very excited about and it's their Sanctuary 4 Day Moisture Body Oil Spray, This claims to give you moisturised skin for 4 days. Now that to me is one heck of a promise as I get really dry skin, so this sounds amazing and I can't wait to use this, I will definitely get back to you and let you know how I get on with it.




Sanctuary actually have an offer on at the moment which is buy two get a free 'beauty box' so I took full advantage and bought their Air Whipped Soufflé Scrub, This is the classic Sanctuary scent, it smells beautiful and just really fresh, it's a soufflé scrub now what part of that doesn't sound amazing? It's also apparently moisturising, it just sounds amazing and I love scrubs so I thought why ever not. I then of course got my free beauty box which contained a full sized body wash, lotion and another mini travel size scrub. Which I'm looking forward to giving a try.



The last and final thing I bought was of course one of my favourite cleansers ever and that's the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, pretty much every blogger I know has loved and raved about how good this is, I too love it and wanted to repurchase it as I like to mix my skincare up sometimes, as I find that once I really really like something I'll just stick with it for forever (yes I'm on about my Emma Hardie ;) ). I'm really looking forward to using this again and adding a more high-street cleanser to my skincare routine. 

And that's everything I bought in Boot's I really hope you liked this posts, let me know some of your boots recommendations I'm always looking and wanting to try out new products and I love boots, so it's a win win situation.

What do you like to buy in Boots?

  5. I'd love to buy everything if I could, I tend to only go in to boots and superdrug when I really need to because I go mad, I'm an Avon rep and I spend over £70 in the book this month, so I need to stay away from boots right now!!
