Boots Beauty Haul

Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation (Repurchase)
I’ve used this foundation for quite some time now after swapping and changing my foundations for a while. It’s definitely my favourite high street foundation as it blends really well on my skin and isn’t cakey at all.

Maybelline Fit Me Concealer (Repurchase)
Before I discovered this concealer, I only ever used stick concealers as I found them quick and easy. I then went on try the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer as I’d heard SO many people rave about it. I found it great for hiding blemishes but found it quite stiff when applying under my eye. It was then that I discovered the Maybelline Fit Me range and thought I’d give the concealer a go- I love it! It’s light and creamy and really does give my under eyes that boost that they need in the mornings!

Nivea Lip Butter in Caramel Cream
If you’ve recently read my Weight Watchers blog post then you’ll know that I’m avoiding chocolate and all things sweet at all costs! So, I thought purchasing this lip butter in the flavour Caramel Cream was an absolute genius idea! It means I can still taste caramel but don’t have to ingest it and therefore no harm will be done to my thighs – savvy! I also love buying lip butters for the colder months too so it’s a win, win :)

Cosmetics Bag
I was looking for a new small make-up bag to put bits of makeup in to put in my bag for the day. I thought this was just the right size and had such a cute little design and for £6, you can’t really go wrong!

Models Own Nail Varnish Duo’s
I really fancied getting some new wintery nail polishes as all my current ones were brights and pastels for the summer. I discovered these two little beauties and instantly fell in love with them. I thought the glitter would look gorgeous painted over my ring fingers for a subtle but glam look.

Toni & Guy Texturising Sea Salt Spray (Repurchase) 
I firstly purchased this sea salt spray in a miniature form as I’d never used a sea salt spray and thought I’d play it safe. I absolutely love using it especially now that my hair is ombre as it makes my hair looks so much more voluminous and full. It give it about 3 or 4 sprays on each end of my hair and then scrunch with my hands. Avoid overspraying and spraying anywhere near your roots as it can cause your hair to go hard and look greasy.

Toni & Guy Volume Plumping Mousse
3 for 2 in Boots is my absolute weakness so buying two hair products I obviously HAD to get a third! I’ve never used this mousse before but I’m pretty much already sold to anything that has the world ‘Volume’ in it. My hair is very thick and heavy so it does tend to go quite flat throughout the day. I’m eager to try this out as all Toni & Guy products I’ve used, I’ve been really impressed with.

Lee Stafford Bleach Blondes Toning Shampoo (Repurchase)
This is my go-to shampoo for when I have my hair ombre. I love the way that it leaves my hair feeling and smelling and I always have to buy a new one before my old one runs out! I’ve already done a review on this product on my Ombre Hair Care Routine which you can find by clicking here :)

Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Moisturiser
I’ve loved using the Sugar Crush Body Wash in the bath and shower as the scent is absolutely out of this world! I am not a massive fan of moisturising my body and find it quite a chore. So, I figured if I love the smell of my moisturiser then I might get a little bit more excited when it comes to that dreaded routine!         * gets tub and sniffs *


  1. I love the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation too, gives such a nice glow to the skin! :) xx


  2. I really want to try some Soap & Glory skincare products and I have my eyes on Flake Away and Righteous Butter..


    1. Flake Away is great! Especially for summer when I get really dry skin in the sun. I just the whole S&G range in my life haha!

  3. I was so so close to buying the Nivea Caramel Cream lip butter it smells absolutely delicious! x

    1. Ahh its gorgeous! You've just reminded me to put some more on haha
