Boots haul & First impressions

Guess who dipped into their no spend savings?, it me (Did you guess?). I’ve been doing that thing where I literally just run down everything in my stash before splurging (in the name of saving some money). I took a little walk over to boots earlier and restocked my empties and I wanted to share them with you lovelies so I thought I’d do a little post.

Rimmel Finish 25 hour concealer

I literally have been squeezing my lil real techniques detailing brush into my concealer tubes in an attempt to scrape the remains of the concealer. I picked up this one From Rimmel because I haven’t used this one from this brand in years and I really liked the last one I did try. This concealer is in the shade 001 (I always need the lightest one). It has a sponge applicator which I like, It claims to be breathable and I truly hope it is. It sounds like a good concealer and I can’t wait to give it a try.

Rimmel #Insta fix & go 

I’ve been after a new setting spray since emptying my Urban Decay ‘De-slick’. It’s a 2 in 1 primer and setting spray which is perfect because my make-up never bluddy lasts!. This suggests you use this after applying your make-up and then through the day to touch up. It’s oil free which I didn’t notice at first but that’s great because I have combination skin which makes finding products that suit me so, so hard.

Boots original dry shampoo 

I’ve come to the conclusion that I physically can’t live without dry shampoo (dramatic I know). I know this is going to make me sound either lazy as fuck or grim but I can’t be arsed to keep washing my hair daily man. Dry shampoo is just so much easier!. Usually, I go for my favourite Batiste but I’m too skint for that, so I picked up this barg of a dry shampoo for £1.50.

OGX Morrocan oil conditioner

I absolutely love this shampoo and conditioner, I don’t think I’ve brought any other one since trying it. It can be expensive so I do try to hold out for when it’s on offer ( A gal can’t afford £7 a bottle). I picked it up today for about £4 which is a barg and I guarantee, these are the best shampoo/conditioner you’ll try.

Cucumber face wipes

Yesterday, as I cut open my bottle of cleanser to try and scrape out the excess (yeah, seriously) I realised I needed a re-stock, which is actually the whole reason I went to Boots in the first place. I was going to get the same cleanser as usual even though I loved it I just didn’t want to spend too much so I just went for the standard £1 wipes I usually grab.

Children in need lucky dip


In my local Boots, they do a yearly lucky dip for children in need, they chuck in loads of goodies and it’s usually like 50p a pop. This year it’s £1 and the prizes are really good and it’s for a good cause so it’s a win, win. I went for £2.




 In the first bag I got; The max factor healthy skin harmony which is a lil dark for me personally so I might take that one to the charity shop, The Loreal infallible foundation stick in sable which again is a lil dark so I’m going to use this for contour, or I might keep it for a summer foundation because it’s only like one or two shades darker and the Lorreal infallible 24 hour lipstick in coral constant which has a ‘boosting balm’ on one side and an intense colour on the other, I am so excited to try this out.

In the Second bag I got the; Bourjois Rouge Laque in 06 Laque which I absolutely love!, The colour is perfect (I’ve been after the perfect red for a while), I got another Loreal infallible in Invincible sable. Lastly, I got the Loreal Paris colour riche lippy (matte) in 654 Bronze Sautoir.

Have you tried any of these bits?.
