I love Boots, it is by far my favourite place to shop in the whole world, if I could live there, I would. so anyway I went there to pick up a few things the other day and ended up getting more things than I'd anticipated so I decided to do a little haul :)
I really like the idea of the Boots Botanics range. It is pretty much a range of skin care which uses as many organic ingredients as possible. I picked up their nourishing cleanser as I previously used simple's but fancied something a bit different. It smells of roses and seems to be working pretty well although I've only been using it for the past few days.
I also got a facial oil which is not something I've seen before but reviews for it said it was really good and reading the box also made me want it. It contains 100% organic ingredients and states that it is scientifically proven to lock in moisture for 8 hours. It says it can be used morning and night but so far I've found it's a little too greasy to use in the morning but it a great night time moisturiser.
I will do a full review of these two ones I've had a bit more use out of them so keep your eyes peeled :)
I picked up rather a few nail polishes on the trip. The first is Essie's 'no chips ahead' top coat which claims that it can prolong a manicure for up to ten days. So far it seems to be pretty good, there are a few chips, but not as many as usual. It was quite pricey at £8.99 but I'be been looking for a good top coat for ages.
I also bought three Barry M varnishes. The first (left to right) is a 'web effect' nail varnish which I'm guessing is for Halloween. It is a bright orange colour which is very fitting. I tried it the other day and it never worked, but I was using it on dry nail varnish and apparently the base coat cannot be completely dry so I'll try it again soon. The second along is 'burgundy Croc'. This is exactly the same colour as their 'Raspberry' nail varnish which I love. Third along is 'pink sapphire glitter' which is an amazing pink and rainbow coloured glitter, it is super pretty!
the last nail varnish I got was one from Rimmel and I believe it's one of their newer ones. It's part of their metal rush collection and this one was called 'Purple reign'. It's a lovely deep purple with flecks of silver, blue, gold and pink.
I love St Ives face scrubs and said in my Monthly Favourites that I wanted to pick up their gentle and blemish fighting ones too. I decided instead to just get the gentle one, as I can use this every day, which is something my skin definitely needs. I also got the body scrub which seems very similar to their invigorating face scrub. It smells the same and has a very similar texture. I can't wait to use it and compare it to my usual Soap and Glory body scrub.
Finally I picked up a 'balmi' which I have heard lots about recently. It's a round shaped tub which you unscrew and it then has a ball of lip balm inside which is very handy. I got it in strawberry and it is delicious. I would tell you whether it's amazing at moisturising your lips or not, but I usually end up licking it off pretty quickly so I can't really comment.
Thanks for reading :) Have you used any of these products before?
Lots of love, Lucy xx
