This is just a little haul post of some things I bought over the last month, mostly from a couple of different Boots orders but also a few bits from eBay and Amazon. Most, though not all, of these things were directly inspired by vloggers/bloggers; in this instance Estee from Estee Lalonde and Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup who I’ve been watching on YouTube a Lot this month.
Firstly, I’ve got some skincare bits, mostly from the Botanics range which you can buy in Boots. I’ve heard quite a lot of recommendations for the Rosewater Toning Spray and when I went to check it out on the website it turned out that they had a bit of a money off sale so I decided to get the Face Oil as it’s 100% organic and I’m very much still developing my own skincare routine. I also decided to get the Radiant Youth Super Serum as I had been wanting to get a serum for a while now and this was just a fantastic price as well as being from a brand that has better ingredients than some of the other brands I’ve tried in the past (Though I know not as good as some of the higher end brands which I just can’t afford =( ) Lastly, for skincare, I got the Origins Super Spot Removing Gel as I had heard so many good things about it and I really am always keeping my eye out for something that really works (And so far so good I must add).

I got a few lip products which were, again, mostly from having heard/read good things about them. I am really enjoying trying new products (especially when on offer as the Revlon lip butters were, for £5) (They’re now on 3 for 2) and none of these have disappointed. I am obsessed with the blistex, it’s going on a few times each day and I’ve worn each of the other products at least two or three times each since they arrived.

Lastly, I have been really needing a better base and top coat for nails. I’m really hoping to try some higher end ones at some point as I am totally nail obsessed, but for now I just got the Sally Hansen one from eBay which was Very reasonable. I also really wanted to try the Revlon nude eye pencil and the Batiste was, simply, because my old can ran out and I don’t want to be without the stuff now that I’m so used to using it!

All in all, I’m really really pleased with the products I’ve bought and I expect them to pop up in some monthly favourite posts in the future. I’ve not used any of them enough to say 100% that they work for me, or that they’re exactly what I needed them to be but it’s very much a case of so far, so good.
