So, today I am bringing you another haul from my trip to London, as promised. This haul is all about beauty and I have to say that I'm beyond excited about all of these! The first few days I haven't shopped much, and I thought I was going to disappoint you (and some of my close friends ;) and not have a beauty haul.
Luckily, literally the last two days there, we've found some amazing stores, as well as a humongous shopping centre in Stratford (just go there, if you get a chance, and you'll know what I'm talking about). I'm not really sure what the biggest shopping centre is, but this one can't be far from it.
Anyways, let's get started:
This may be the most 'boring' group of products. Here I have a Bootsdry shampoo Paradise Island, which was around £2-3, Wilkinson Sword Xtreme3 Beauty disposable razors, which were £2, Simple kind to eyes soothing eye balm, which was £3.50, and the Body Shop Shea sugar body scrub, which was £3 or 4. I was convinced that I got the body butter, and just now realized it was a scrub, so I'm a bit disappointed :D But I guess I'll use it anyways. I've lost the Body Shop and the dry shampoo receipt, so I can't tell you the exact price.
The main reason why I'm not excited about the Body Shop scrub is because I got one from Soap&Glory, too :D In Boots they had 3 for 2 on Soap&Glory and I knew I wanted to try that brand since we can't get it around here, so I decided to get some of these minis. I got a Flake Away body polish, a Hand Food hand cream (which I've seen everyone raving about), and a Hand Maid hand cleansing gel. Each of these was £2.50, but I got all three for £5.
I was super excited when I saw a Makeup Revolution counter at Superdrug :D I ordered a few things online before and love everything, so seeing it in store was quite cool :D However, I ended up getting just the Pro fix amazing makeup fixing spray, because I've decided that I don't really need more eyeshadow (I was being reasonable, so bear with me :D) It was £5. The next thing I bought at the airport in a duty-free shop and I can't even begin to tell you how excited I was to see a Urban Decay counter there (we don't have that in Croatia :D and I didn't see it in London, either). I knew I had to get something, but I didn't want to spend too much money. So, I saw this prep spray, which I already wanted to try, since my skin has been acting up on me lately. This is vitamin infused, so I had an excuse to buy it :D it was £8.30 for a 30ml bottle.
When I was in Superdrug, they had a buy 2 marked skincare and get a free gift. Free? Well, of course I'm going to get it :D So, I got a Vitamin E refreshing toning mist for £2.99 and a BB Cream for £3.48. Both are the same brand, but I'm not entirely sure what it is :D It has a tiny star, and I guess it's a Superdrug exclusive brand. The toning mist I've already used, and it did leak a bit in my suitcase. Nothing terrible though.
As a gift I got a Patisserie de Bain Bath & Body Collection, which was worth £10 (pretty cool, right?). I am going to leave this for my giveaway in the future (I am hoarding slowly, but surely :D)
Of course I had to save best for last :) This is what I got from Benefit at Boots. I lost my receipt for that, too :D but I think I'll be able to tell you how much it was. Now, is that the most amazing packaging ever or what? Anyways, here is what I bought:
This is a Do the Hoola Beyond bronze kit for complexion, lips & eyes. There is a Hoola ultra plush lip gloss, a They're Real! mascara (which I've been wanting to try for aaaages!), a Hoola bronzer (also something I've been wanting to try), a bronzing brush (which is not that exciting), a dew the Hoola liquid bronzer and a Benebalm tinted lip balm. This kit was £28.50.
The next thing I got from Benefit is a lipstick in Lip Service (it took me a while to figure out what the name of the shade was :D). To be honest, I got this lipstick just to get all the free stuff :D I don't really love it as much as I thought I would. I will test it out a few more times, but they I might either sell it, or give it to someone else. This lipstick was £15.
And now for the free stuff. Since I bought 2 things from Benefit, they gave me all of these free samples. I got a They're Real! eye makeup remover, an Air Patrol BB cream eyelid primer, 2 eyes It's potent/ eye benefit cream (brightening eye cream to fade dark circles), a Bigger than BB Big Easy liquid to powder multi-balancing complexion perfector with SPF35 in 02 light, a Hello Flawless Oxigen Wow brightening makeup with SPF 25 in "believe in me" Ivory, and probably the most exciting sample- a Gimme Brow brow-voluminizing fiber gel.
I also got 2 cup holders for Starbucks for buy 1, get 1 free, but of course we've already used those :)
And that is it for my haul! Do you like it? Which is your favorite product out of these? I know I've spent quite a lot of money, but I've really been saving up for this trip, and to buy some of the makeup I can't here in Croatia :)
Which product would you like me to review?
Thank you for reading!
See you soon xx
