Recent Beauty purchases


I hate the fact that beauty essentials seem to run out at the same time, it's like some sort of law of universe that I will never understand. I picked up a few essentials and some not so essential items on a recent trip to superdrug and boots, these are just a few of the things I got. When you're a beauty junkie repurchasing items really speaks volumes about it, I stopped testing out new skincare as I'm pretty happy with the routine I have now. All of the skincare items are repurchases, I even have a blog post on the boots No7 cleanserThe only skincare item I haven't tried out was the Nivea lotion, I'm always on the hunt for a really moisturising lotion, and yes I've tried palmers coco butter and I don't like it. Over hyped and under performs.
I really like superdrugs own brand of nail polish remover, however I'm yet to try this formulation. I've been using the acetone formulation lately and my cuticles have bee dry as heck! I usually don't buy these pre-soaked remover pads, but I've been finding that by the time I get back from work I'm too tired to tend to my nails, so I plan on carrying one of these in my bag so I can remove polish on the go and re paint my nails when I get home. I love changing up my polish and lately I've been slacking.
I finally own the sleek 'oh so special' palette, I feel so behind as it came out ages ago but I never had to opportunity to get it, the colours are really wearable so I'm hoping I actually use this palette.

Have you picked up anything recently?

  1. I recently just bought myself a set of brushes from Sephora and I can't wait to use them <3 Also I bought some nail polishes... after pay day I might pop into the mall and snatch some beauty related items as well.
