Okay, I’ll put my hands in the air and admit that I have a slight problem, but I can’t resist the Boots Advantage Card event and it’s happened again so I’ve got a new haul of the bits and pieces that I have bought. I also had a little spree on Liz Earle so watch out for that in a later blog post!
So Boots, being the wonderful people they are now stock Bumble and Bumble in my local store – Amazing! This gave me the perfect excuse to have a restock. I originally used these products in a spa in Vegas and my hair was in great condition considering the desert heat. I really regret not picking up more from the US as it was so much cheaper, but at least I know what to get next time I visit. I will leave links below to all of the items so you can have a read of what they are. I will say out of all of these the Bb Creme de Coco shampoo and conditioners are my favourite, and are well worth the price tag!
From left to right:
- Bb Tonic Lotion (For the most perfect blow dry and a day to day refresh)
- Bb Creme de Coco Shampoo (Thick formula, super moisturising and great smell)
- Bb Creme de Coco Conditioner (Thick formula, super moisturising, great smell again)
- Bb Does It All Styling Spray (Lightweight formula, non sticky, light hold)
- Bb Quenching Masque (Rich formula, leaves my hair super shiny)
- Bb Thickening Hairspray (Creates the perfect blow dry and great heat protector)
- Bb Thickening Shampoo (Not really scented, helps hair styles hold for longer)
- Bb Thickening Conditioner (Not really scented, helps hair styles hold for longer)
Next up there was an offer on Herbal Essences, one of my favourite smells from the original collection was the Rose scent, and I am so happy they have introduced it into the dry shampoos. I have previously bought an orangey smell before, and I feel the formula is really light and doesn’t leave as much white residue like others can.
I then went over to Barry M to get one of their Gelly polishes. I don’t like really bright colours on my nails, as one of my big things is when it chips it is really noticeable, so using nudes and paler colours just puts that worry to the back of my mind. Barry M has a great range of colours, and I picked up the colour Lychee (which you can see on my nails in this picture). I haven’t really tried this before, but they are quite hard work and didn’t last as long as i would’ve hoped.
I also picked up two of these St Tropez luxury dry oils, these are really long lasting and hydrating (as you can see I have already tried out one of these) and you really don’t need a lot to do your whole body. Another thing I favour over some other of the tan oils on the market is that you can see it when it is put on, so it eliminates the streak factor. One downside to this is that is is extremely glittery, but nothing a shower can’t fix.
Finally some make up bits, both of these you are probably sick to the sight of, as every blogger has probably bought these, but I have jumped on the bandwagon now 🙂 So first up is the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet lipstick in shade Nude-ist, I love these matte lipsticks and they really last a long time and its a great easy wearing colour. Finally is Soap & Glory’s one heck of a blot. This has taken over as my bag powder as just a quick top up during my days at work, I would really recommend this one.
Phew, that was quite the task rolling through all that, and as I mentioned, I do have a Liz Earle haul coming up as well so make sure you stay tuned 🙂
Have you bought yourself anything nice? Or could recommend me any other beauty bits? Let me know in the comments.
