Latest Beauty Buys

Oops, I've done it again. I've been out (Or in, thanks to the wonder of online shopping) buying yet more beauty products, although in my defence I did need some of them! There's nothing I love more than buying and testing new products, and if my bank balance was much bigger I'm sure I'd be buying something new literally every day. Although I'm sure I'd get bored of that eventually! Today's post is showing you what products I have bought and whether they are a new purchase or a repurchase and my thoughts on them so far.
St Tropez Instant Glow Face Lotion.
This one was a freebie from St Tropez's Facebook page. I'm yet to try this one out, but I love using their Gradual Tan on my face, so I can see myself enjoying using this one too! It's a 50ml tube, but I can imagine I will only need to use a small amount to cover my face, so it should last me a while.
Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel 125ml, £29.50 - New Purchase.
Now this one was my first ever expensive skincare product. I hate spending more money on high end products that could be used on cheaper and just as effective high end ones. However, I had read great reviews on this Clinique moisturiser and I really wanted to try it out for myself. Before I bought this, I didn't used to moisturise that much. I would do it when I remembered, usually about once a week! I have been using this moisturiser for around four weeks now, and I still have plenty left. It has a smoothing gel texture which feels so cooling to apply onto my skin. I used this whilst on holiday and when I returned my skin was feeling super dry and this gel continued to do the trick.
Moroccan Oil Treatment 125ml, £30.45. Re-purchase.
I have been using the smaller bottle of Moroccan Oil for around the past two months and it has sadly come to end - so what more excuse did I need to treat myself to an even larger bottle! I managed to get a great bargain after searching through Google. I came across a hair and beauty website called My Salon Looks, who are currently selling 125ml Moroccan Oil Treatment for just £30.45, including a pump and 25% extra free! (RRP £38.00) I then even had more of a bargain with 10% off Moroccan Oil purchases plus an introductory discount, so I only paid £24.47! Since using the treatment, my hair has been in such better condition that it was previously. I also think it has helped my hair growth, as I had a bit too much cut off and I went straight to my favourite oil!
Collection & Rimmel Cosmetics - New Purchases.
So, there I was in Asda, having only gone in for one thing when I spotted the Collection cosmetic stand with lots of tempting offers on them. Nearly everything was under £4.00, so that made it perfectly reasonable for me to buy a few more cosmetics! I fancied a new mascara so I chose 'Big Fake Ultimate' mascara. I have used this once already and I am impressed so far - it has a quite a big brush and has made my lashes look more volumized without using another mascara on top. I also picked up a lipstick in 'Mango Tango' and an eye shadow trio. As for Rimmel, I bought this Exaggerate liquid liner in Asos' 30% Rimmel sale, which was a bargain!
Soap & Glory 'Glow Job' Moisturiser, £7.33. New purchase.
Did I need another moisturiser? No, but it was reduced from £11.00 to £5.50, so I thought I would give it a go! There were lots of other S&G skincare on sale in Boots too, but I didn't go overboard and just bought this one! It's a daily radiance moisturising lotion with bronzebursts included to give a light tan. Sounds perfect to me!
No7 Beautifully Matte Foundation, £12.95. Re-purchase.
I have been using this foundation on and off over the past few months and each time I use it again, I remember why I love it so much. I was colour matched at the No7 Colour Match service and chose Beautifully Matte as it offers a shine free finish and the coverage is brilliant. It's the perfect foundation for me as it gives me exactly what I want and it's very reasonably priced too! (Especially when the No7 vouchers come out in Boots, even better!)
Garnier Pure Active Face Wash - New Purchase.
This one was a bargain in good old Poundland. I have only just started using it as I have got some annoying blackheads on my nose and this wash aims to unclog your pores and generally give it a good old clean. It leaves my skin feeling refreshed, however there's a slightly strong scent of tea tree oil which is the only thing that puts me off it.
