Boots haul – Seventeen, Barry M, Rimmel, Sanctuary and Good things

I’ve had a bit of a lucky month this month, I’ve had a couple of little windfalls where I got some unexpected money due to being reimbursed for things that I paid for quite a long time ago and a couple of other things, so, I allowed myself a couple of bigger hauls than I’d normally get. First there’s this boots one, and then in a few days you’ll see an Escentual one and an Elf one. I wouldn’t normally spend all of this on myself in the space of a month, but this was special circumstances (yay).


There was a buy one get one half price running on cosmetics so the Rimmel salon pro polish and one of the Barry M’s were both half price, yay.
I got the Seventeen ‘On the spot’ foundation in porcelain (rrp £6.99). I’ve been wanting this foundation ever since I saw bloggers posting about it before the release, a decent coverage foundation with added salicylic acid to help prevent breakouts and all for £6.99 by a brand that I really like… yeah you can see why this was a pretty essential purchase!
I also picked up the Rimmel Salon pro Kate polish in ‘Brit Pop’ (I got half price for £2.25), the moment I saw this blue toned teal I just neeeeded to get it, it’s a colour I absolutely love and I love rimmel polishes.
I got the Barry M Gelly Hi shine in ‘Blue Grape’ (£3.99) because, as you know, I’m obsessed with that formula and I just couldn’t resist that gorgeous, vivid blue. I also got one of the confetti effect polishes in ‘Dolly Mix’ (I got half price for £1.99) which you’ll see coming up in a future notd post.
I got some Amazing bargains with these three products!
I’ve been really wanting to try the Sanctuary ‘5 Minute thermal detox mask’ after seeing Khila at ‘Miss Budget Beauty‘ talk about it a few times. I’m also utterly obsessed with masks at the moment so getting another just seemed like a good idea! I was so pleased, when I checked this, to see that it was reduced to £8.50 rather than the normal £10.50 so that sealed the deal for me. The weird thing is, though, that Boots also had a deal on where if you spent over £10 on sanctuary you got their Creme souffle body cream for free (it’s work £10.50 I think!) and, even though my product was reduced, it put it in my cart anyway, I can only assume it was based on the original price. So for £8.50 I got the mask and the creme souffle (I feel a bit bad but it was automatically added to my order and I didn’t realise!)
Lastly I got the Good things blemish control gel mask; told you I’m obsessed with masks at the moment! I really like the Good things 5 minute mask that I have already so this one seemed like a good bet, not to mention it’s supposed to help with blemishes?! The best thing, though, was that it was reduced from around £5 or £6 down to £3.33!
So, for £11.83 I got all three products in the photo above – An amazing bargain I think you’ll agree! And with the buy one get one half price the other bits were great deals too! I always get very pleased with myself when I manage a good bargain and love how well you can stretch your money if you find the best offers.
