The Not-So Impulsive Haul

Last week I shared with you my quick, 'grab as much as I possibly can in a short amount of time' haul. I did as said and took another shopping trip, this time with a specific list of products that I needed. Ok, not so much needed but products that I didn't want to be without...

As usual, Boots was where most of the damage took place. Having used up multiple minis of Benefit They're Real mascara, I thought it was about time to bite the bullet and purchase a full-sized one. This is the most I have ever spent on a mascara, but after going without it for two weeks and regretting not having one every morning when doing my makeup I think this is money well spent. 
The only thing that I really need from this haul was the Soap & Glory Smoothie Star Breakfast Scrub. My previous exfoliator had run out a month or so ago and my leg-shaving routine just wasn't the same with out one. I chose this as it was one of the only S&G scrubs that I haven't had before. I am still yet to use this but I have to mention how incredible this smells - I can't even begin to describe it.

With my holiday coming up and some stretch marks that I would like less visible, I picked up the Palmers Massage Lotion for Stretch Marks. I am also using Bio-Oil in rotation with this. I'm not expecting miracles but a little difference would be nice. 
I am not really loving my nail polish collection at the moment, which may seem a strange to non-beauty obsessives, but if you're like me you will get it. My tastes have changed quite dramatically over the past year or so and I feel that I need to adapt my nail colours to suit. I picked up the Mama Knows Best Duo by Essie to give a little re-vamp to my stash. The colours Lilacism and Peach Daiquiri are perfect for spring.

When a MAC collection comes out, MSFs are my weakness. Perfect Topping from the current Fantasy of Flowers collection, wasn't one that I wanted to miss out on. The soft peach shade with veins of champagne and lilac running through makes for one of the prettiest products I have seen. The high volume of shimmer, makes this just that bit more mesmerizing. 

What have you been buying lately?


  1. I love ALL of the S+G scrubs, they are amazing :) I've been trying super hard to stay away from Boots lately - but I might have picked up a sneaky bourjois bit or two ;)
