Boots & Superdrug Haul :-)

Hello dearies!

Yesterday me and Dan got new phones, yey :-) But I'm so gutted my big crazy pink girly phone case won't fit on my new phone anymore :-( Not sure what to do with it!

Here's the back of my new phone, looking very unpink! It has lovely white leather though! :-) But it's just waiting for my orangey foundation hands to dye it a gross peach :-(

Here's the front, very pretty and posh! :-)

With mine and Dan trading in our phones we got some cashback, which I quickly went and spent the majority of on some goodies I've been after for ages!
I wasn't planning on actually buying any curlers, but the lovely lady at Boots just got me chatting and I ended up buying them! They're just what I'm after though, and for £15.31 I thought they were a bargain :-) Can't wait to have long flowing tumbleing curls! :-) Just got to train Dan to do the back bit for me ;-)

I got lots of things I've been pining for from Superdrug.. so excited for them all! :-)
I use Veet In-Shower Hair Removal Cream, it's amazing, and comes with a little sponge to help you remove the hair. It's so easy to use, and so much quicker/pain free than waxing! I'd really recommend it, although the smell is pretty bad!
I also got some Batiste dry shampoo, I love the Hawaiian scented one, as well as the pink bottled one, so I thought I'd have a go with a different one - the Diva, I'll let you know what I think :-) But in general I love Dry Shampoo so much, it really helps my pink hair too as means I don't have to wash it as much and get all the colour out! I also use dry shampoo to add some volume for flat hair days too :-)
I also got my mitts on the John Freida 3 day straight spray, it was around £5. I just had to buy it, I've heard so so much about it, lots of blogs and magazine articles have been dedicated to it. Apparently, you spray it on your hair after washing, then dry and straighten the product so it's locked into your hair, and then it'll keep your hair sleek and straight for 3 days, let's so how it goes! :-)
I got some baby oil after reading a snipped of Jordan/Katie Prices style book saying she bathes in a bath with loads of baby oil in, and I just love the idea, and reckon it'd benefit my eczema and dry bits amazingly, so that's what'll be in my next bath :-)
I hardly ever use hair products but want to start having a go with some, so I got Schwarkopf's got2b 2 sexy hair mousse - I want to pump it into my roots and curls when I want some great volume and big curls, looking forward to trying that out! :-)
The little radox bottle on the fair left is some jasmine scented hand sanitizer, I use this all the time, and this is perfect handbag size!
I use exfoliating gloves in the shower with Sanex bath and shower gel before fake tanning, but my last pair of white ones were ready for the bin, so I couldn't resist these cute pink ones from Superdrug!
After reading I couldn't wait to try out Superdrugs lip balm in 'Strawberries and cream'! And I love it! It gives a cute baby pink sheen, tastes/smells amazing, and leaves lips really moisturised and nourished.
And the last thing in that picture is that lovely pink lipgloss from the brand 'MUA' in Superdrug, it was only £1 so I couldn't resist getting it to try it out! It'll be perfect to keep in my handbag I reckon :-)

Another purchase from the MUA range which I bought after reading evatsx blogspot was this eyeshadow in Shade 1 - Pearl. It looks so pretty and such a great colour to pop on your inner eye, can't wait to try it out! :-)

From Boots I got Soap and Glorys 'Breakfast Scrub', it was £6 and after smelling it I just couldn't resist buying it! I've been after a really really gentle exfoliater for my face and eczema and I think this looks perfect as it is a paste with ground up oats in rather than beads or sugar or anything too harsh - and my gosh it smells INCREDIBLE. Like honey and oats and oh so sweet buttery goodness. It's worth paying the money for just to smell it! :-) Next time you're in Boots have a sniff, it's beautiful! :-)
I got some more Simple soaps as I've ran out of my last pack, and they're the only things that'll get pesky hair dye off my hands/face/neck/furniture! They just swipe it off so quickly and are super cheap :-) Plus they smell super fresh and clean.
I got some eylure Naturalites eyelashes - these are the 'double' ones so they're super thick and voluminous and give the effect as though you have two pairs of lashes on already. :-) So even though they're £7 they definitely are worth it rather than putting two pairs of £5 ones on. Love em! :-) I also got some £2 vanilla scented body spray - it smells so sweet scrumptious and delicious!

Last but not least I got some more In Shower Hair Removal Cream (a 2 for 1 deal from Superdrug ;-) ) but this one is Aloe Vera scented, some Mitchum deodorant - I LOVE this stuff! Will never use any other deoderant again, the powder fresh scent is my favourite :-) And then a bigger bottle of hand sanitiser for my makeup kit :-)

Don't you find it amazing how all us girlies have our own regimes, our own favourite products, our own fave scents, our little beauty secrets, our own ways of pampering ourselves! I wish I could learn about everyones, I find it so interesting! :-)



  1. This has been a very significant blog indeed. I’ve acquired a lot of helpful information from your article. Thank you for sharing such relevant topic with us. I really love all the great stuff you provide. Thanks again and keep it coming

  2. The scrub is really really wonderful, but it s meant to be used on body, not on face! it is just too harsh, it will damage the skin.


if you've got a question,
i'll try and get back to you asap,
