Boots Haul

After I finish exams I always treat myself to a few bits and bobs so Wednesday I made my first trip to Boots in a month! I had been seeing some new beauty releases that looked amazing and I just couldn't help myself.

I ran out of Double Wear foundation a while ago and have been using my backup foundation ever since which was fine but just doesn't compare to Double Wear. I can see me repurchasing this again and again as it's just perfect for my skin. I will be doing a full review very soon with my full opinions.

I mentioned in my last post that I had gone off the Porefessional, however I'd been hearing so much about the new primer from Maybelline called Baby Skin. I know it's supposed to be similar to the Porefessional but I wanted to see if I could use it without it drying out my skin especially as it's so much cheaper! I've used it a couple of times now and I really like it, it smoothes my skin and makes my foundation just glide on. However it's going to take me a bit longer to decide whether I like it for long term use.

I have very thin hair so when L'Oreal released a new range designed to make the width of the hair bigger I knew I had to try it. Whenever I have tried thickening hair products in the past then have left a residue, and as my hair also gets oily very quickly I usually decide they are not for me. I've used these products one now and they left my hair feeling lovely, so far no noticeable build up but only time will tell.

I am on a war path against my oily skin right now and decided to purchase the new powder from benefit to see if it will help me keep the oil at bay during the day. To go along side this I also bought some new blotting papers as my other ones ran out recently. Hopefully my new skincare will help me with my oily skin and I'll update you soon.

The last thing I bought it is the famous L'Oreal micelle water as it was on offer and I couldn't resist. I bought some Bioderma whilst on my travels in Europe and I'm really interested to see how it compares.

Have you tried any of these products?

I was thinking of doing a series on oily skin and what I do to try and cope with it. Would this be something you were interested in?

Lots of Love
