Drugstore Haul

Saturday, 28 May 2016
Well it happened again; a drugstore haul. To be fair I earned quite few points and there were some really good deals on and as my Gran taught me: never buy something full price. I stick to this motto a lot because everyone loves a bargain and I love makeup!

Drugstore Haul

For this haul I ventured into Boots, Superdrug and also Poundland to stock up on a few bits such as skincare and makeup, and for once I genuinely needed some of the things.

Botanics Skincare

So before I begin, Botanics had an offer on and I had a points thing too. Nearly all the Botanics range was half price and if I spent £5 on skincare I got 50 points, and those points do add up, (I currently have £15 worth of points!) First I picked up the All Bright Refreshing Eye Roll-On, currently I am suffering from major hayfever meaning my eyes are always puffy and it's not a good look. Then I saw the All Bright Radiance Balm which has loads of little light reflecting particles, similar to Rimmel's Wake Me Up foundation, I wasn't prepared for the reflectiness so war rather surprised the first time I used it to be honest. Finally I repurchased my favourite face scrub: the All Bright Purifying Face Scrub. This scrub is the happy medium for me, not too harsh but still actually does something, other scrubs sometimes don't get all the dead skin off, ewww!

Soap&Glory Glosssticks

Now the Soap&Glory GlossSticks are only £3.50 and were on buy one get one half price. I was hoping to pick up their matte counterparts but the shades I wanted were out of stock. However, being me I made sure that I didn't leave empty handed as I decided to try Pink-A-Boo and Pinkfetti. Then in Poundland I thought it would be a smart idea to pick up some Malibu Ice Blue After Sun Gel as it was 23 degrees that day yes in England! I'm as shocked as you are! Luckily I didn't need it but it is a very cute size and I'm sure it will come in handy sometime soon.

Batiste Dry Shampoo

Now Superdrug had some particularly good deals on. Batiste Dry Shampoo was half price as was the NIVEA Pearl&Beauty Anti-Perspirant. (At the time the big bottle was cheaper than the small one.) I chose the scent Sweetie for my dry shampoo as I hadn't heard of it before and I quite like the smell, it's not fresh like the others but it is still nice!

Garnier Anti Blackhead Deep Pore Wash

This was not what I expected but I thought I'd give it a go to try and clear my skin. However, the Garnier AntiBlackhead Deep Pore Wash has dreaded micro beads and I'm really annoyed at myself for not checking before I bought. I'm going to use this up so I am not wasteful but I really need to check next time. It wasn't expensive but it's not what I expected sadly. 


So there is my latest haul, I'm going on a spending ban very soon because I can't stop buying skincare! Strange right, usually it's makeup. As you're reading this I am midway through exams and am probably really stressed but luckily I have blogging to keep me sane!
