Boots Beauty Haul | September

Sometimes there’s just nothing like a little retail therapy. I’ve managed to rack up an impressive amount of Boots points lately, so it called for a spending spree! These are all products I’ve been coveting for quite a while now. I’m going to try to avoid going into too much detail as I’ll be doing full reviews on most of them soon, but these are the items I filled up my basket with… 

Real Techniques are pretty much every blogger’s go-to brand for affordable and high quality make up brushes. I’m a huge fan and already have the Core and Starter Kits, but felt it was time to widen my collection. I’ve been eyeing up the blush and powder brushes for quite a while now and so couldn’t resist the buy one get one half price offer. The brushes do exactly what they say on the label and are incredibly impressive for such a low price as compared to high end brushes.

I’ve given into the hype on the L’Oreal 3-In-1 Purifying Solution. I’ve always wanted to try out a Micellar Solution as there’s nothing worse than oily, greasy eye make up removers. This is a cleanser, make up remover and toner all in one – the perfect multipurpose product. I’m sure these will be sweeping the blogosphere over the next few weeks. Full review to come soon!

I don’t think there’s a body scrub in the world that I love as much as Soap and Glory Pulp Friction. I was put off at paying Β£8.00 for a shower scrub, but with my Boots points it was just like spending magical, non-existent money. It’s an exfoliating scrub which rubs away any dry skin and leaves your skin feeling so smooth. The scent is a gorgeous fruity smell which fills your bathroom and really lasts on the skin. This will definitely be a repurchase!

The Tangle Teeze was actually a replacement after my puppy chewed apart my last one (wah). I’ve always had a problem with snapping and generally losing hair since I started dying it blonde. Getting a brush through my hair after showering used to be an absolute nightmare and really damaged it over time. Since using this, it has made brushing so much easier, and there’s been a drastic improvement in the overall condition. I really wish I found this sooner!

There seemed to be no product that I like on my eyebrows in existence until I got my hands on Maybelline Brow Drama Mascara. I’ve tried Benefit’s Brow Zings, using eyeshadow, and too many eyebrow pencils to name. I’ve been on the look out for a brow mascara – MAC’s Brow Set has always tempted me, but I didn’t want to risk the price tag as I’ve never tried one out before. Maybelline have come to the rescue with this product and I can’t rate it enough. A review of this will be up soon!

Have you been on a spending spree lately? Would you try any of these products?

Lydia Rose,

    Tangle tease looks really good! Great to know that it has made a real difference. My hair was coming out quite a lot so I decided to wash it less (its helped) but I've never been careful with what brushes I've used. I have a brush for years the handle falls off and then I eventually buy another!

      It really has rescued my hair! Yeah, washing it less definitely helps but using a good brush is so so important. I would definitely recommend πŸ™‚ xo

    I love my tangle teaser! It definitely is brilliant to get rid of knots. The pulp friction body scrub is luurvely, hydrating yet really gets rid of dead skin x

    • September 14, 2013 / 5:00 pm

      I love them both πŸ™‚ couldn't live without my tangle teaser πŸ™‚

    • September 14, 2013 / 5:06 pm

      ugh it's a nightmare being blonde sometimes, isn't it! XO

    Nothing is better than spending Boots points.
    The S&G scrub is lovely I think its a good intensive scrub & does a great job. I have repurchased this a few times.
    RT brushes are amongst some of the best I have evert tried & think they're very reasonable in price. I am really wantint to try this new set they are releasing in November. As I have 3 brushes from them and this set has lots I don't own yet.

    • September 14, 2013 / 5:08 pm

      I know right, I have too much fun spending them. oooh I didn't realise they were bringing out a new set! xo

    • September 14, 2013 / 5:09 pm

      I'm so impressed with it so far πŸ™‚ xo

    • September 14, 2013 / 5:09 pm

      It should be up within a few days! xo

      You definitely should try them! xo

    I love the blush brush from Real Techniques! It picks just enough color and the tapered end is perfect for the cheeks. They don't sell the L'Oreal Micellar water in the US, but I love Bioderma so it looks very interesting!


    • September 15, 2013 / 6:28 pm

      Apparently the L'oreal one is a dupe of Bioderma! I'm loving the blush brush so far πŸ™‚ xo

    I love Pulp Fiction scrub – its such an easy scrub to use especially if you want not such a heavy scrubbing session aha seems great as well!
    I've got to buy myself some real technique brushes, every blogger must have and seen so many good reviews. Can't wait to see your review on the L'oreal product, I want to know what its like before I buy it πŸ˜‰

    • September 15, 2013 / 6:30 pm

      I love it! It'll be up tomorrow πŸ™‚ xo

    Fab choices – I'm currently on a spending ban and got no end of joy ordering a couple of Real Techniques earlier today using my Boots points! πŸ™‚
    I have the Tangle Teezer Aqua Splash but want one for in my handbag!

    Great haul! Those two RT brushes are brilliant, the blusher brush is amazing and blending in product. I've always wanted a tangle teaser, my hair is a nightmare to comb, I usually have to just sleep on it wet πŸ™

    Lovely post

      Doesn't your hair get a weird smell when you sleep on it wet? Some people say its bad but I do it sometimes. You must invest in a Tangle Teezer though. It isn't much of an investment and its amazing!

  20. October 18, 2013 / 4:18 am

    I absolutely love my Tangle Teezer! I couldn't handle how much it hurt to brush my hair and now its so easy and not painful at all. I live in the states so a lot of the products aren't easy to find but as soon as I saw it I bought it and now I carry it around with me everywhere! Ok enough of my ramble. You have a really great blog!
