What I've Bought #24

Monday, 23 March 2015

Last week I popped into Boots to repurchase a few products. I could gain £5 worth of points if I spent a certain amount & as I'm trying to save up enough points for a extra special treat, I couldn't pass it up. I then popped in later that day as the lady gave me a no7 voucher where I could get £5 off a skincare product & £3 off a makeup product. How could I say no?!

There was a 3for2 offer on skincare, so I decided to repurchase the Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Buttercream & the No7 Beautiful Skin Melting Gel Cleanser. I still have haven't finished the ones I'm currently using but as I have been using them everyday without fail, I thought it would be good to have a back up. I also picked up the No7 Beautiful Skin Hydration Mask. I'm really excited to use this as my skin has become extra dry with the cold weather sticking around, so hopefully it will work wonders.
I have nearly scraped the last bit out of my Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, so I thought it was time to pick up another. I have noticed that this one seems to be a little darker than usual,  I don't know if there was something wrong with the one I bought or the label was wrong. it's still a great match for my skin but not as brightening as usual.

 I used the last of my Soap & Glory One Heck Of A Blot Powder before I went shopping, I loved how it set my makeup & how velvety soft it made my skin feel. I definitely had to pick up another! There was a 3for2 off on S&G, so I also picked up two products that I've wanted for a while. The Archery Brow Pencil & Brush & the Supercat Eyeliner Pen. I'm really excited to use these as I've heard amazing things about them.

I was just £8 away from getting the £5 worth of points & I really didn't know what to pick up. I spotted this really cute Burts Bees Basic Honey Set. I've only tried one of their products & quite enjoyed it, so I thought it might be worth trying. It contains a Honey Lipbalm & a Honey & Grapeseed Hand Cream, both will be very handy for my dry skin & they are perfect handbag sizes. I was still around £2 away & then I remembered there was a particular Barry M Nail Polish that I needed to get my hands on - Vintage Violet. It's the perfect shade for me & I have confessed my love for Barry M quite a few times on here.

When I popped back in, I told myself I was only allowed to buy two No7 products as I had the voucher & nothing else. I actually had some willpower & once I finished chatting to the lovely No7 lady, I left as quickly as possible to save my bank account anymore heartache. I would like to quickly touch on how amazing the customer service was, she seemed genuinely interested in my skin concerns & tried to pick the best products for me.

 Now, on to the products! I could get £3 off a makeup product & I knew exactly what that was going to be. The No7 Midnight Lash Mascara just had to be mine. It's been featured on a wishlist, added to my Boots basket many times & I've read a million reviews. It's beautiful packaging initially drew me in but I've tried it a few times & it's love! For the skincare part, I didn't really know what to get but after a chat with the No7 lady, she recommended the No7 Calm Skin Redness Relief Balm to help with my redness. I've also used this a few times & I have noticed a small difference. Hopefully with continued use, it will calm down the redness enough for people to stop asking what has happened to my face when I don't wear makeup.

Have you tried any of these products? What have you been buying lately?
