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.
