Small Beauty Haul


Yesterday I visited Westfield Stratford for a little retail therapy and picked up a few bits for Victoria's Secret and Boots. There are loads of great offers on at the moment as its summer sales time and Boots are running loads of three for two promotions.

The first place I visited was Victoria's Secret. I have loved Victoria's Secret underwear and their Pink clothing range for years now and usually stock up on clothing whenever I'm in America. However I have never tried anything from their cosmetics range before. I noticed that the Ultimate Look Shadow Trio and Color Drama Lip Shine were in the sale so I thought it would be a great chance to give them a go. At only £2.50 each they are a pretty good bargain. I haven't had a chance to try them out yet but I will do a full post on them when I've had a play around with them.

Another purchase which was a major impulse buy was the miniature body spray set. I had been sampling the body sprays whilst in store but unable to decide on which one to get so when I saw this set of five at the till I thought I'd give it a go. The set itself I feel is pretty good value for money £17 gets you five 60ml spray bottles, which are a perfect size to carry round in your handbag. Not a bad price considering the full size 250ml bottles are £13 each. Im looking forward to trying the different scents out to find my favourite.

The next place I visited was Boots. Having read other beauty blogs I was really keen to try out the Sanctuary 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask and the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. I have heard a lot of good things about these products and wanted to see if they were worth the hype.

There is currently a three for two offer running on skin care in Boots so I took the opportunity to pick up some Soap and Glory skin care products. I haven't read anything yet about either of these products but they sounded worth a try. I picked up the Ultimelt Deep Purifying Hot Cloth Cleanser and the Fab Pore 2-in-1 Pore Purifying Mask & Peel. Once I've had a chance to use these I will be posting a full review of what I think of them.

I did also pick up a few clothing items on my shopping trip but I'm going to do a separate blog post for those.

If you have tried any of these products out already leave me a comment and let me know what you think of them.
