When Boots emailed me to tell me that I qualified for double points throughout February because it was my birthday, that was enough to get me in the door within the hour. I had a few things in mind that I needed to pick up and some more wedding related purchases (I hope to stop saying that soon!).
The Wet Brush Pro – Pink ‘Wet’ Edition
I had decided that I needed to get a new hair brush, my wet brushes whilst amazing are almost two years old and after two years of pulling at my tangly tresses they’ve unsurprisingly given up and one’s gone missing. When I went in and looked at the Wet Brushes I noticed these special edition ones that looked like they were covered in water droplets (like the MAC Alluring Aquatics collection – my favourite one ever!) and I picked up the pink one. I’m so glad I did I’ve been using this for about a week now and it’s official, my old ones were definitely knackered.
The Wet Brush Pop Fold – Foldable Brush
I spotted this as I turned round to see these hanging on the end of the aisle – they were reduced from £12.99 to £3.50 (and actually when I looked at my receipt it went through at £1.50!). A full size foldable hairbrush that I thought would be handy for travel. I’m actually going back to see if they have any left because if so I’m buying a backup!
Lee Stafford CocoLoco Genius Lotion
I’ve been trying to hold off repurchasing this after I finished it up at the end of November. The Genius Lotion was definitely one of my favourite discoveries of 2016 and this is now my third tube. Other things are similar on the label, but none work as well as this for me. When I spotted it was a third off, I swiped one up.
Lee Stafford CocoLoco Dry Shampoo
Again this was a third off which tempted me to try it, I’ve tried the dry shampoo from the normal Lee Stafford Line, but I’ve not tried the CocoLoco version before. The regular version wasn’t my favourite, but I really like the CocoLoco line in general so have higher hopes with this one.
Batiste 2 in 1 Invisible Dry Shampoo & Conditioner
I do not like Batiste Dry Shampoos, but when I spotted this new one from them, that promised to also be invisible I decided I needed to try it, the fact it’s also described as a conditioner is extra interesting to me. There was three scents available in this new line, I opted for Cocoa and Cashmere.
Boots Ingredients Sheet Mask – Tiger Lily & Lotus Flower
I’ve heard good things about these new sheet masks from Boots so decided to give one a try. They’re made in Korea as well which made me curious to see how they performed. I’m about to put this on as I’m writing this and I plan for it to be a Face Mask Friday post this week, so keep your eyes peeled!
Makeup Obsession 6 Pan Palette, 2 Highlighters & Strobe Cream
I picked up a highlighter from Makeup Obsession whilst we were Christmas Shopping and have been using it a hell of a lot. My Boots closest to work has now got the ‘Boots Emporium’ in there and now has the makeup obssesion line. Whilst the shadows seem great quality, there’s not much within the line that I’m particularly interested in, but the highlighters are great as they have ones with coloured hues (there’s a lilac one which is out of stock every bloody time I’ve been at a Makeup Obsession stand!). I picked up the shades lightening (the Marble one), Pop (which has a icy green hue) & Precious (Strobe Cream with an icy blue tone).
The next items are the wedding related ones, I’ve been to a few weddings over the past few years where there’s been a basket of cosmetics in the bathroom for guests to use and touch up, I’ve found them really handy in the past so decided I wanted to do the same. I may do a full post on this once I’ve got all the bits (and feel free to tell me ideas of what you think might be handy cause I may of missed some things off my already giant list!).
Soap and Glory Hand Cream – Hair Grips – Hair Bobbles – Hairspray – Makeup Wipes – Deodorant – Nail File – Kleenex – Chewing Gum
