Yesterday I decided to treat myself to a few things from Boots. It's one of those stores where I can get quickly get carried away, so I had to be quite strict with myself! Anyway I thought I'd share my initial thoughts on the products I bought. I am not going to review the products in this post as I haven't really had time to try them out properly but if you do want to see any full reviews let me know in the comments below!
No7 Beautiful Skin Hot Cloth Cleanser
Now I know a lot of people have really elaborate skin care routines, but I don't! I tend to stick to what works for me and rarely try anything new, however after reading other blog reviews I was drawn to trying the No7 Hot Cloth Cleanser. My skin goes through stages of being quite sensitive so I am always a little worried about trying new facial products, however the hot cloth cleanser claims to be hypo-allergenic so I am hoping it will suit my skin just fine. I have used it a couple of times already and I have to say so far so good! I don't think £9.95 is bad for 200ml of product - you can't put a price on good skin care right?
Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Body Wash
Did anyone else use Glitter Babes products from Boots when they were younger? Well this zingalicious (made up word) product reminds me of a lime scented spray they used to make. If you like super sweet, almost to the point of being sickly, scented products, then this is certainly for you! I am a little bit in love with it already. It's very zesty and perfect for waking me up in the morning.
I don't really know why I picked this up, other than being completely overwhelmed at the choice of conditioning sprays. It has a nice scent and it promises a lot of good things for my hair so I'll let you know if it works once I have tried it out properly.
John Frieda Frizz-Ease Intensive Masque
I love intensive hair masks and although I cannot remember if I have used this one before, I am sure it'll do the job! I haven't had my hair cut for a while (whoops) so I could definitely do with a little hair care repair! I am loving my longer locks at the moment though, so I need to pay a bit more attention on keeping it in a good condition.
Barry M Gelly Polish
I've seen these polishes on a number of blogs now and being drawn to shiny things, I couldn't resist picking one up to try myself. I decided on the lilac shade called 'prickly pear' but I kind of wish I had picked up the pink shade too. I am also desperate to get my hands on the pastel textured polishes but they are not in Boots until the 20th and the colours I like were sold out on Superdrug's website :(
Again, I fell for the blogger hype and had to get myself a couple of the Rimmel Apocalips lip lacquers. I chose the shades 'galaxy' and 'nova' after seeing swatches on another blog and deciding they would suit me the most. I haven't had chance to try out 'nova' yet but I have been wearing 'galaxy' all day today and love, love, love it. As I said at the beginning of the post, I don't like reviewing products until I've properly tried them, but I'll definitely do a little post on these in the near future.
Boots moisturising cream
The reason I picked this up... erm...well James liked the smelt of it. He picked it up and told me I needed to buy it and because I love refreshing cucumber smells, I thought why not! It was only £1.50 and its just your average moisturiser, but I was in need of one and to be honest I think this will do the job just fine :)
Boots slanted tweezers
Tweezers are one of those things that I always lose, so I thought I would purchase these as a spare. James was actually horrified that there were tweezers priced over £10, so he was relieved to see me reach for a £1 pair!
Have you picked up anything from Boots lately or tried any of the products I've bought? Let me know what you thought of them! xo
