Oh lordy lord, here we go… another haul. I really need to go on a serious spending ban. I recently popped into Boots for some essentials (razor, deodorant etc) yet, I came out with a lot more than that. Let’s take a look!
I needed new shampoo and conditioner, and seeing as I’m on a bit of a budget, I whipped these up on the 3 for 2 offer. I chose the Dove Nurtitive Soloutions Nourishing Oil Care Shampoo, as I’d used it in the past and liked it. This was €3.99, but was my free item, as I also chose 2 of the Dove Damage Solutions Colour Care Conditioner (I seem to go through conditioner waaaaay quicker than shampoo) These were €4..02 each for a pretty large bottle, so I was chuffed with getting a great bargain!
Next, more boring essentials. I hate how expensive razors are, so I chose the Gillette Venus Embrace Sensitive razor, which was reduced from €11.99 to €5.99. Then I picked up 2 of the Sure Compressed deodorants, one for home and one for my handbag. These were €1.50 each.
I’ve been wanting to try the La Roche Posay Serozinc for what seems like ages. Now it’s finally come to Ireland, I was dying to get my hands on it. I’m going to introduce this to the ‘toner’ stage of my skin care regime and I’m hoping for good results. It’s designed to work great on oily and blemish prone skin, so fingers crossed it works for me! This was on offer for €8.25.
Next, I saw that L’Oreal makeup was on offer, 2 items for €18. I’ve been dying to try the Infallible Mattifying Base and the Infallible 24hr Matte Foundation since I’ve seen so many glowing reviews online. These are usually €11.99 each so getting both for €18 was a pretty sweet deal. I cannot wait to give these a go!!
After all that spending I as given one of the famous No7 vouchers. These coupons are designed to lure people into spending loads when they think they’re getting a bargain, and I fall for it ever single time.
I chose to pick up a pack of my old reliable No7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Wipes. These retail at €9.25 for a pack of 30, so with the money off voucher they only cost me €2.75, which is great value!
Then I noticed No7 make up was buy one get one half price, and I fancied a new lippie, so I thought I may as well get two! I chose the Stay Perfect Moisture Drench lipstick in the shade ‘Rose Mist’ and the Sheer Temptation lipstick in the shade ‘Lovely’. These both cost €12.95 each, but with the buy one get one half price offer, teamed with my €4 voucher, I managed to snag both for a total of €15.42, not bad at all!
I was shopping with a friend, who then gave me her €4 off voucher, so I couldn’t resist picking up these lovely eyeshadows. I chose the Stay Perfect Eyeshadows in the shades Wheatsheaf, a gorgeous champagne colour, and Truffle which is a gorgeous taupe sheeny shade. I haven’t applied these to the lid yet, but they swatched really smooth and they’re pretty pigmented. These cost €9.25 each, but with the deal and coupon, I got them both together for €9.87! Bargain or what?!
On the way out I nipped into Penneys (check out what I picked up in my clothing haul here) and I picked up my trusty favourite Garnier Micellar Water, as it’s a lot cheaper there than anywhere else at €4.50. Then after loving the Essence XXXL Shine lip gloss that I received in my June Glossybox, I had to pick up another shade. I chose the ‘nude’ version in the shade ‘taste the sweets’ which is a gorgeous pale pink gloss. This was €2.29, and I’m already head over heels with it and planning on picking up tons more!
So that’s my haul! A few essentials and a few exciting bits and bobs. Let me know if you’d like me to do a review of any of the bits I bought.
