Shopping / Boots

Boots is doing again their 3for2 offer and this time you can mix&match between body and face products... which makes me veeeery happy!! :)


Nivea Firming Body Oil: this is a new product which just came out. I'm a fan of Nivea Q10 line for many years and I'm fan of body oils so I had to try it.
I like using body oils just after a bath or shower on wet skin; recently, I have been using the Monu oil and I keep it in my bath and planning of keeping this new one in the shower, instead.
Being clumsy, I like that it has a plastic bottle but I'm not a fan of the screw top (too fiddling).
I have only used it twice but I love it - beautiful smell and will definitely re-buy once it's finished.
Biore' Deep Cleansing Pore Strips: I use these on my nose from time to time... they're kinda of ewww but it's kind of satisfying to see all the dirt coming out - sorry for the grossness! ;P
Simple Kind to Eyes Make-up Corrector Pen: I like my make up to be a bit messy, kinda of rock chick but it's good to have a back up in case you need a flawless work. I've been meaning to try this for some time but always holding off because of the price (I think nearly 5quid) so I picked it up now and it was free (because of the 3for2, of course).
Kleenex Facial Cloths Cotton Touch: I bought these to use with my make-up brushes more than on my face. I, sometimes, use a spray to quickly change colours on my brushes, in between proper washes, and I found that wiping them off with toilet paper it's just a mess; the paper breaks leaving all residues on the brittles. I'm hoping these will work better, being more resistant.


Real Techniques Powder Brush: yes, I caved in and got another RT brush. 
I have many blush brushes but only 1 kabuki for the face... so you see I REALLY needed this one. ;)
I already got the Core Collection (review here) so it was a natural step to buy this brand again.
It's super soft and it's the perfect size for a face brush (I like them huge and fluffy to applying setting powders). 


just to give you an idea of the size
Burt's Bees Beeswax & Banana Hand Cream:  I've been wanting to try this for so long!!! Unfortunately, it's a disappointment :(
It smells divine in the pot - proper banana that you want to eat it but then once rubbed into your hands, it transforms into a wax smell (not too pleasant). It's also very very thick and I can only use it before bedtime.


Lanolips Lemonaid: here is something which never disappoint, instead. :)
I'm a huge fan, love their original 101 version and I couldn't wait to get my hands on this too. Of course, at 10quid, it's not cheap and that's when Boots offers comes in handy. 
This is already my favourite: it has organic lemon oil to hydrate and naturally exfoliate plus a hint of shimmer. I bet it'll look great as a top coat on lipsticks... or also on its own. 


Lanolips Rose Balm Everyday for Dry Hands & Nails: have I mentioned I love Lanolips yet?? hehe
well, they also have a couple of hands creams... again not cheap but technically free.
I like it very much so... I find the smell very soothing, comforting and it absorbs beautifully. In fact in that sense, it's the best I have ever tried; if you can't stand hand creams because of the residue or greasiness they may leave, you definitely need to give this one a go.


Have you tried any of this products before?
How are you going to take advantage of the Boots' offer?

  3. Great haul! I wish I wasn't on a spending ban because I love these 3 for 2 offers :( Love Lanolips too! Sad to hear about the Burts Bees hand cream though, have been tempted to try that out myself but not sure I would like that texture x

    1. I know, I can't believe how the smell changes once applied... It's great at moisturising tho.
