Haul / Boots pt.2

Second part of the Boots haul - you can check the 1st part here!

Soap & Glory Kick Ass Instant Retouch Pressed Powder - yet another setting powder, you guessed it (see the Bourjois here) but this was kinda of a spur of the moment purchase. I was browsing in store and swatched it randomly; it has such a weird slippery/silicony texture. It looks yellow in the pan but it’s pretty translucent on the skin. I think it could be good to set undereye concealer. What’s everyone opinion on this product?

I’ve been eyeing the Rimmel  London Glam'Eyes HD 5 Colour Eye Shadow palette in 022 Brixton Brown for a while; it doesn’t appear to be anything special but... oh boy, it is. For £6.99 you get 5 pretty and versatile colours and quality is good too; as you can see in the pic above, the centre shade is a revelation: it pulls quite orangy/copper in the swatch and it looks beautiful when layered on top of one of the browns. 

I ran out of my trusty Rimmel London 5in1 Base & Top Coat and went for the Revlon Colorstay Gel-Smooth Base Coat this time. I love the Colourstay range: it’s formaldehyde, toluene and DBP free, too.

I had a Soap & Glory Bath Pillow years ago from a Xmas giftset but sadly broke; I’ve been looking into replacing it and decided to pick up another S&G one. This one is huge!! Too big, actually and it's kinda of awkward to attach to the bath so I cannot recommend it, unfortunately. :(

Boots Essentials Eye Make-Up Remover Pads - I used these years ago; they are cheap as chips (£1.50 for 40 disks) and the wee container keeps them wet until the very last one. I went back to them to deal with stubborn mascara (yep, I’m talking about you Benefit They’re Real). They are very oily, tho – which doesn’t bother me because the product rinses easily – but be aware if you don’t like the feeling of it. They are also great for travelling and fragrance free.
I picked up the A-Derma Sensifluid Cleansing Lotion (to use in conjunction with a toner in the morning) and Garnier Cleansing Wipes Start Afresh (for the gym). The cleansing milk is thicker than others that I used before so I find that half a pump is enough for the whole face; the wipes have a gentle texturised surface, a lovely scent but I'd like them to be a tad bit wetter. 

I'm been wanting to try Una Brennan line for few months and I decided to start with this Superfacialist Vitamin C+ Brighten Dark Circles Eye Cream; definitely interested to check if it delivers with the brightening claims (and that will probably swing me in trying other products or not). I didn't think it was that cheap (12.99GBP) and so far, I'm not a fan of the flowery scent.

Finally for the body:
Garnier Ultimate Anti-Cellulite Oil - they've just come out with 3/4 different types; I chose the anti-cellulite, naturally. I already love it! The grapefruit scent is divine and it's definitely a great budget product for everyday hydration.
Argan 5 + Body Sculpting Serum is a firming body cream and Bionsen Dermoprotective Roll-On Deodorant which is aluminium and paraben free.

  1. I love soap and glory just wish they had it here in Australia, had to stock up on a few things from my last trip to Dubai!

    1. I'm not a big fan of their candy floss scent but the make up range is pretty good!

  2. Love your haul posts! I'm going to have to hunt out that Rimmel palette myself, what a bargain! x
