Boots and Superdrug Haul.

So after behaving all month and not really purchasing anything I randomly received an extra £30, and what better way to spend it than treat myself… or that’s what I’m telling myself anyway.

First up I decided I would make the most of the Soap & Glory 342 offer going on. I picked up two of my all time favourites; the Clean, Girls Body Wash and Flake Away.

I love the scent of this particular body wash, I think it has to be my favourite from Soap & Glory – it is scented with their famous Mist You Madly’s. I also find this particular body wash leaves my skin fairly moisturised after showering, before I’ve even applied any moisturiser. As to Flake Away this is a body scrub that is just so effective at getting rid of any dead skin cells, and is always a savior if my eczema decides to play up. It is a salt-based scrub, and the one I always go back to.

The last Soap & Glory product I picked up was their The Daily Soothe Bath Float in the same scent as the body wash. I have never used this before, but I can see this being a favourite quite quickly.


Next on my little haul I decided to pick up the MUA Hall of Fame eyeshadow palette. Weirdly I have never purchased one of MUA’s palettes, so I thought it was about time when I spotted this one. It includes 12 of the most popular shades featured across all of MUA’s palettes. I love the look of the shades and can’t wait to get trying them, especially Rose Ash, the first shade in the top row.

I also decided to pick up a couple of Collection’s eyeshadow pencils after wanting a pinky coloured eyeshadow pencil for a while now, and seeing them featured by quite a few bloggers. From simply swatching these I have already discovered how long lasting they are. They didn’t seem to disappear, and stayed on my hand for a good 7-8 hours before I removed them with makeup remover. I picked up the shades Vintage Blush and Hot Chocolate.

Okay, this is a naughty one… I have been trying to work my way through some of my current bases before I was allowed to purchase another foundation. Oops, however to be fair I have used up one and I had a £2 off voucher with my Boots card.

This is the Max Factor Skin Luminizer foundation – I picked this up due to the word “luminizer.” I’m always looking for products that brighten up my face so this sounds perfect. I love the swirly design, and remember loving a Max Foundation years a go. I can’t wait to give it ago.

Next up are my final two products; two I don’t know about you but I feel like I have been waiting forever for them to hit the UK: the Maybelline Color Elixir’s. They are described as being non-sticky lipglosses with a stronger colour than you’re average lipgloss. I believe they are also supposed to be longer lasting. I found them on 2 for £10 in Superdrug so of course I picked up two. The colours I went for are Petal Blush and Blush Essence. So far, I am really enjoying them but I am sure I will be writing a review shortly.
