We finally had a bit of summer sunshine here in Yorkshire and this inspired me to do a bit of summer shopping (not that I need an excuse to shop!)
I needed to pick up a few summer body essentials which lead to a bit of a spree in Boots and Superdrug before ending in Primark!
The first thing I picked up was the new Co-Lab extreme volume dry shampoo in Monaco. I am a huge fan of this dry shampoo, it's excellent for getting rid of oils and leaving my hair feeling and smelling brilliantly fresh. This is a new fragrance and is designed to give you more volume than the sheer invisible Co-Lab, so I thought I'd pick it up and give it a whirl. £3.49 from Superdrug.
Next I picked up the Zoella (@ZozeeBo) beauty range. I've watched Zoe for years on You-Tube and when she released her beauty line last year at Superdrug I really enjoyed the products - they are inexpensive and I love the fragrance. So when she released her new line recently I thought I'd pick up some bits. The first thing I picked up was the 'foam sweet foam shower gel', £3.50 from Superdrug. I gave it a cheeky smell whilst in store and liked the more tropical fragrance (her new line is tutti fruity inspired).
I also picked up the 'lets spritz' body mist, £8.00 from Superdrug. I am an avid user of her original 'blissful wistful' body mist which I use as my everyday work perfume and am excited to try this new offering.
I also spotted these Carex complete wipes in the strawberry laces fragrance. I am a big fan of the new limited Carex hand washes in the retro sweet scents. They are designed to encourage children to wash their hands and they are definitely winners on that front in my house. So I thought these would be brilliant for my handbag for wiping those sticky fingers and faces (mine as well as the kids!) and they were on offer for 99p at Superdrug.
Boots was my next stop and I went a little crazy with the Soap & Glory products! Not only did they have an offer on that if you spent over £10 on Soap & Glory products you get a free product, they also had reductions on all the skin care range. So I picked up the 'Foam Call' bath and shower wash. I've always been a big fan of the Soap & Glory shower products, as they smell amazing, feel awesome and you get a lot for your money. I have used this one before a while ago and really liked the fragrance as it smells fresh but not sweet. £6.50 at Boots.
Then treated myself to some skincare products. I've never used their skin care range but have read a lot of blogs that seem to swear by them so I thought with reductions why not! I went for the 'Ultimelt deep purifying hot cloth cleanser'. I have mentioned before that I am a big fan of cleansing balms and hot cloth cleansing, having used the Emma Hardie Cleansing balm for a few years, so I decided to try this when I run out. It usually £10 but is on offer at the moment for £8.00 at Boots.
I have always struggled to find a moisturiser I like, I tend to buy one and use it till it runs out and then try another, so I thought that I would give this one a go. It's the 'Fab pore micro smoothing moisture lotion'. It says it brightens, reduces pores and is mattifying so I will see how I get on with this. It's is usually £12 but is currently half price at £6.00 at Boots.
As I mentioned when you spend over £10 you received a free product - a full size 'The Righteous Butter'. I LOVE this stuff. It is moisturising, leaves your skin feeling amazing and smell gorgeous. I love a freebie especially when it's as good as this!
I then carried on my Summer haul with a little trip to Primark. I like Primark for summer things, as it is great for summer staples at great prices. I loved these Bardot style tops and picked up a couple for £3 each. I have worn them loads and am probably going to have to go back and pick up a few more in some more colours.
I also went a little shoe crazy. These may only last this summer but I am loving the pumps available at the moment and again at £3 each, what's not to love! I chose the fab coral colour and these little white and silver leopard print style ones as they are soon cute!
The last item I got were these black bow ballet pumps for £8. You can never have too many ballet pumps and the only other black pair I had fell to pieces recently, so these were perfect to replace them.
Thats it for my haul. I am spent up but I am excited about trying all my new products and wearing my new clothes and shoes in the sunshine! I will keep you posted how I get on with the beauty products in the coming weeks.
