Boots Beauty Haul

22 comments

Oops, I've done it again. Boots lured me in with their premium bonus points event - this is my excuse ok? I bought two Benefit products and received 750 points. I then added four more products which took my total to just over £55.00 and then that gave me 1000 bonus points too. So, in total I received £17.50 back in points over products I would have bought anyway.
 
First up, I treated myself to two Benefit products. Before I started blogging, I had heard of Benefit as a brand but had never tried any of their products. Now I am converted but from now on I'm trying to just stick to the products that I have tried and loved recently as I don't want to splash out on an expensive product to find out I don't even like it! I have used They're Real mascara before and I absolutely love it. I have to be honest and admit that when I first started using it, I was wondering what all the fuss was about as it is pretty pricey! The more I used the mascara though, the volume and thickness built up over time and I soon realised just why it is such a bestselling product. It retails at £19.50 which quite frankly isn't cheap, but I am willing to pay more for a product that actually does the job. The next Benefit product I bought is the Hoola bronzer. I'm looking forward to trying this product out and writing up a full review! I must make a confession that I didn't try this before I bought it, but I do have high hopes for Hoola, as I loved Coralista blush.
 
I was running low on my L'Oreal Micellar Solution, so I added a new one to my basket ready for when my current one runs out (any day now!). This is one my current favourite skincare products as it does exactly what it promises and its not going to set you back too much cash either! The Micellar Solution is a Bioderma dupe (which I haven't tried) and it costs £4.99 for 200ml. Keep an eye out in Asda though as it is sometimes on offer for just £3.00! I use this product everyday to remove all of my makeup and it leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed. It's so much better for my skin that using a makeup wipe as it picks up all those little bits of foundation that you thought had disappeared by now! It's perfect for swiping away your everyday makeup including eye makeup too!
 
Models Own had an offer on their nail polishes. I bought two nail polishes for £10.00 and received a free Velvet Goth polish. The Velvet Goth polish shade I received is 'Goth Absinthe' which is a deep emerald green colour. This may not have been a shade I would have chosen but I'm looking forward to trying out and seeing what I think! Models Own never let me down so I'm sure I'm going to love it. I first picked out the shade 'Apple Pie' which is a gorgeous pastel coloured shade and is also a scented nail polish which I haven't used before. Lastly, I rebelled against the autumn/winter trend colours and went for a neon bright. I chose the shade 'Beach Party' which is a neon orange from the Hed Kandi range.
Have you treated yourself lately? x

  2. great haul, and amazing getting £17.50 back! Hoola is definitely my staple bronzer, I use it every time I do my makeup and haven't found another one that comes close. I really need to try They're Real, I've never found a mascara I've really loved before but think I'd like this one! x
