First off I hope you’ve all been having a wonderful Easter weekend! I definitely did! I spent the weekend with my wonderful boyfriend, and I’m super sad that he had to go back to London this afternoon, but it’s back to work tomorrow! So on Saturday we went into town (and I also picked up a couple cheeky bits today too!) and had a little shop around, so I thought I’d share with you what I got.
First off I got a few bits in Superdrug that I’ve been lusting after for a little while now!
First was a sweet little palette by Collection that cost only £3.99! I’d seen Amelia Liana raving about this on her YouTube channel and couldn’t help but pick one up for myself. I got it in the shade ‘Nude’ but there was a couple other varieties. Next is the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. I’m sure most beauty addicts have heard of the Beauty Blender, and this is Real Techniques answer to the drugstore’s need for something similar. This was on special (I think) for £5.99 so I couldn’t help but throw it in my basket! Lastly the Sleek Face Form palette is something that I have had on my wish list for a long time, and after getting it for Laura in our beauty swap, I just knew I had to get one for myself. This retails for £9.99 and I got it in the shade ‘Light’.
Next off, I had to go to LUSH…
If you saw my 40 Makeup Questions Tag you’ll see I admitted I am super bad for exfoliating my face. I find Ocean Salt can be a little harsh for my skin at times, but at the very least I can make sure I use this in the shower to scrub away all the dead skin both on my face and my body! Next is Superbalm and Rehab Shampoo. I got these because my scalp has just been so dry and I think it’s all since I had my hair coloured last. I’ve had enough of itchy, flaky scalp so I picked up this combo to try and sort it out. Superbalm is a balm which sort of ‘melts’ on your fingers, and you rub it into your scalp, then shampoo and condition as normal, and Rehab is a super cleansing shampoo to help rid your hair and scalp of product build up and any stubborn dirt and greasiness. I’ll let you know how those work! This pink bath bomb is the ever popular best seller Twilight, and I mostly got this one for ‘research purposes’ since I’ve never actually tried it! People come into the shop all the time for this bath bomb and I want to be able to talk about it properly! Next is a favourite LUSH product of mine that’s also raved about by beauty blogger Tanya Burr. King Of Skin is a super yummy body butter that you apply in the shower, rinse off, then pat your skin dry, and you’re left with super moisturised beautiful skin. You must try this! Lastly is one I actually didn’t intend on including because you can’t get it anymore, but its Drummers Drumming. It was a reusable bubble bar that came out for christmas time, that you swish about in the water to make loads of bubbles. Thankfully for us, the factory sent out all the stuff that couldn’t be sold to our shop for LUSH employees, so I got to try some of the stuff that I missed out on at christmas time!
Today I popped back into Superdrug to kill a bit of time before my bus and was so happy to see they’ve finally got a stand for Makeup Revolution! Of course a lot of stuff was sold out but I did pick up this beautiful baked bronzer which I’m so excited to try! Lastly is this lip product by Bourjois; the Rouge Edition Velvet. I’d seen this in another store but they didn’t have this shade, so I was super happy to see it in stock today. These are Bourjois’s answer to the liquid to matte finish lip products (which I’m totally on board with by the way!) and I cannot wait to try it out! I love the packaging, and there was a lot more shades I wanted to try, as well as a Rouge Edition Aqua Laque collection which offers a high shine finish, but I thought at £8.99 I’d give this one a go before jumping in and buying a whole bunch!
So that’s my little Easter weekend haul! Do let me know; what was the last product you purchased?!
