Boots || Haul

I went to Boots ... and I bought a whole load of things that I didn't actually need so naturally I'm going to share them with you so you can buy things you don't need too hahaha (amn't I an enabler!). In all fairness the majority of this haul resulted from my skin having got a good tan so technically I needed some new make-up to match it!

I bought a tanning accelerator because even though I have managed to get a bit of a tan, I'd quite like to darken it at any given chance. Yes I am a tanaholic haha. You can use this both for outdoor tanning and for the sunbeds too (not that I'm advising to use them) and it smells like oranges. It's really moisturising... as for does it make you more tanned? Probably not, maybe it would if you were under a really strong sun but I think I've tanned the exact same as I would have without it! So I think I won't bother buying anymore tanning accelerators once this one is used up.

One thing I did actually need was a new mascara and everyone has been raving about the Maybelline Lash sensational mascara so I thought I would give it a go. I've heard a lot of rumours about it being a really good dupe for Benefits Roller lash which I've been wanting to try. Since it's been so highly raved about I do have high hopes but I'm so fussy with mascara's and haven't managed to find many from the drug store that I actually like so we'll see how it goes. I'll definitely do a full review on this letting you know my thoughts on it.

Another tan inspired purchase was the Rimmel Wake Me Up concealer. I was finding that all my concealers were too light for me (you know that dreaded white under eye look) so I needed a darker one. I went for another cult favourite because I only really need it for under eyes rather than blemishes and anything that promises to brighten those dreaded eye bags sounds ideal to me.

I don't usually suffer from blemished skin so the main reason for me to wear a foundation is to give my face a little bit of colour. So recently I've been finding foundation far too heavy for what I really need so I decided to pick up a BB cream. The only reason I chose this one was because there was some kind of deal on with the concealer but it sounds like it should give a nice sheer coverage. I got this in the shade medium which I would probably class as 'dark' but you know what Rimmel are like with their shades!

I don't know how I ended up purchasing the Toni & Guy salt spray...I'm going to blame it on my friend Robyn for being an enabler. It was really cheap though and so far I have been so impressed, I definitely think a full post will be coming soon on this one! It's quite a small bottle but a little goes a long way.

I'm not going to lie,  the sole reason I ended up purchasing this one was because its erm.. unusual? name caught my eye. Hats off to Soap and Glory's marketing team because their clever names and packaging 100% work. I liked the concept of a tinted moisturiser and this one has lots of vitamins in it. Soap and Glory products usually are really good so I think this one will become one of my favourites. 

I had to stock up on my Eyelure 101 eyelashes. These are always on 3 for 2 which works out at about £26 for 9 sets of eyelashes which I don't think is too bad considering you can re-use each lash (if you're careful) about 5/6 times. I might do a whole separate post on how to look after fake eyelashes if you would like to read it? I did of course buy 3 packs but just for the sake of the photos used one. 

What should I be picking up on my next Boots trip?

Lots of Love,
