Boots Haul - New Finds

I hadn't been in boots for a long time so I decided to pick up a few things I hadn't tried before.

I've been after a new foundation/bb cream for a while now that is compatible with my dry skin. I was browsing the L'oreal stand and spotted the L'oreal Nude Magique BB cream. When I swatched this I was pleasantly surprised.

When squeezed through the tube and onto your skin it appears as a white gritty liquid. Then when rubbed into the skin, the gritty (beads) explode into colour that gives a light natural finish. A finish so natural you can't tell your wearing it which I love. There's nothing worse than cakey makeup! 
When swatched it looks a bit on the orange side, but it blends nicely into my skin tone when applied and is untraceable. And best of doesn't highlight any dry patches.

Whilst I was at the L'oreal stand I also noticed a little tube of L'oreal Nude Magique BB Blush.
This is even stranger. It's a clear silicone gel when squeezed out the tube, but when placed into the skin and mixed with your natural PH it turns into a beautiful natural glowy pink. A little goes a long way with this and it only needs to be patted lightly onto the cheeks to give a youthful 'just been outside' pink glow. This might be a new favourite! Especially as spring is round the corner.

Next up I picked up 5 Montagne Jeunesse face masks. 
I've never tried these face masks but I've heard good things, so I decided to pick 5 different ones up to get a feel for the brand. I picked up two hydrating sheet masks. Apparently these are great for dehydrated skin and are incredibly mess free to use! The other three are either peel off masks or old school mud masks for cleansing as I tend to get blackheads on my chin and forehead. 
I've only tied the black seaweed peel off mask so far. The texture is odd and messy and incredibly black! It reminds me of venom from Spider-Man! It was easy to peel off and saw amazing results! For £1 a mask (I reckon I could get three uses out of that one) I think they're brilliant value for money when you need a quick skin fix. My pores where incredibly clear and it didn't dry out my skin. It was also REALLY fun to feel off. A bit like peeling PVA glue off your hands when in primary school.

I recently ran out of my soap and glory shower gel and scrub and was going to pick some more up when I decided to try something new. So instead I picked up some from Original Source. I picked up the coconut shower gel (I love coconut scented things!) and the tea tree shower daily scrub. This scrub is delicate for my sensitive skin but scrubby enough to get rid of any dead skin before shaving. Great buy! I really want to try the new shower oil range from them too! 

Lastly I got an old favourite from Charles Worthington  - Moisture Seal Shampoo, Conditioner and Deep Conditioner. 
The scent of this range is gorgeous and my hair already feels more nourished and smooth than it did before. My hair was looking and feeling a bit damaged so I need a quick rescue and I sure got one!

Overall I'm really happy with my new purchases; have you brought anything recently from Boots?

  1. That blush looks really intriguing, I find the idea of a blush being liquid kind of strange but at the same time I'd love to try it out!

    1. I was a bit sceptical at first, but it stays on all day and you can't over do it!
