Haul post and Review post : Beauty products


So on Saturday, I went for a little shop.

Aside from getting my first two Christmas presents (yes I know) I also picked up a few products that I'm am rather excited about.

But before I get on to the swag, I thought that I would rationalise my Christmas purchases. You can read the method behind my madness in this blog post

The first place that I went to was Superdrug. Now, this is a shop that I don't normally go into anymore, I usually go to it's rival Boots. But in the past couple of months I have seen that I've spent a lot of money on beauty products, but I've noticed that the products are a lot cheaper in Superdrug.

I also approve of Superdrug more as they don't test their own products on animals (which is something that I believe is a very important issue.

I bought the below:

The first two items I bought were some replacement brushes : foundation and powder. They weren't too expensive, around 4 pounds each. They are quite light and I haven't intended them to be a permanent solution. So I will be replacing them soon!

I also picked up three new face masks. The Cucumber cooling clay mask is a repurchase whereas the other two, the chocolate orange and De- stressing mud masks are new choices. I hope that they will be just as good as the others I have tried. I love the fact that the masks are 99p each and they are also on a 3 for 2 deal :)
You can find my face mask review posts here and here
I have also repurchased my favourite all time foundation : dream matte mousse foundation from Maybeline:

There is a review for this item on this Vlog:

The next item I went for was some novelty monkey plasters. The joke behind this is that Luke (my partner) keeps getting injured at basketball and the gym so I buy silly plasters so he is more careful ;). Previous choices have included Peppa pig, spiderman and Mr Men
I also repurchased some rosy lips vaseline in a chapstick form , just as its getting to that time of year when the weather gets colder and lips become cracked :(
I also repurchased the matte precise eyeliner, there is a review for it in the Vlog above. 
My last purchase is a kind of repurchase but not. The Show girl Mascara by Barry M - but this is the extreme length version. I am a massive fan of the one that I have tried so I figured why not :)

I moved on to Lush next and picked up the two items below:

First up is the experimenter : I have been looking forward to trying this product since I first saw it on Youtube. When placed into water all the colours attack the water :). The smell is also incredible!

Second purchase was the Pink Flamingo Bubble wand. I love Lush Bubble wands, my favourite being the Christmas Snow fairy. I love that they are reusable. The smell is amazing and they are so much fun. I can imagine that they are popular with younger children. 

So thats the Haul. Obviously I can't post what I bought for the christmas presents yet.....

Let me know if you have tried any of these products!

Superdrug face-masks have always been a favourite of mine, not only do they work, but they are gentle on my sensitive skin and affordable!
