Hey, happy first of August everyone!
Yesterday I went on another shopping trip but this time to a big shopping centre in Dundee. As I previously mentioned here … I never really bothered with a proper skin care routine and I wanted to give it a go. Who knows, maybe I can stick to it and have nicer skin! While at it I also picked up a couple of new beauty products that I haven’t used before.
Now grab a nice cup of tea & some biscuits and let’s find out what I bought!
The first store I went into was Lush. I love the smell of the whole room while walking in – all the gorgeous scents hit you at once!
As soon as I stepped in a nice girl called Alice came up to me and began to show me around their skin care alley. I was specifically looking for face masks that would cleanse my skin and fight acne during break-out times. She was very helpful, fun and was informative about their products.
The first mask which she recommended to me was the “Mask of Magnaminty” (£10.95). This mask claims to fight eruptions and outbreaks and return the skin to tip top condition. It’s meant to be very good by the sounds of it, however, I will be posting a focused review of this product on Friday! So definitely stay tuned.
The second mask I got was the “Angels on Bare Skin” (£7.25). This is an everyday face and body cleansing mask that is meant to even out the skin tone and give it a natural glow. Once again, I will review this mask in depth sometime next week. I have high hopes!
Have any of you guys tried out these masks? What do you think about them? Or maybe you use different Lush masks? Please let me know in the comment section!
Then I went to the M.A.C section of Debenhams.
Again, a lovely girl welcomed me in and helped me choose some products. Although I have bought two foundations in my previous haul (click here) I decided to double check if I’m wearing the right shade. To my luck, I actually needed another shade all along – woops. So you guys should definitely check your skin tone regularly with a professional make-up artist, as I will too from now on.
My correct shade is NW15. NW15 stands for “Neutral Warm 15” for those that are not sure. I picked up the Studio Fix Fluid Foundation because its formula works best for me. The biggest difference between NW15 and my previous NC20 is that this does not come up as orange anymore. I guess I got paler over the summer, sad face 😦 Scotland needs more sun!!!
Studio Fix Fluid – £22.00
Oh guys, at last I joined the Prep+Prime Fix Spray wagon, woop woop! I will let you know how I get on with it in another post. Thanks to those who kept recommending it, you succeeded in persuading me.
Prep+Prime Fix Spray – £17.50
What other M.A.C products should I check out? Be sure to let me know!
Last but not least, Superdrug.
I literally spent about 5 minutes in there because Lyall kept moaning. This is a prime example of why girls should not go shopping with boys – there is legit no common interest!
So, In the time that I had in Superdrug I picked up:
1. Cleansing Facial Wipes for Combination Skin. They are the best, I always get some from their range. Even waterproof make up comes off smoothly and the wipes don’t hurt your skin while scrubbing it. I think the packet was about £1 for 25 wipes … bargain!
2. Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious Mascara (£7.99). I think this one contains some special oil blends, we’ll see how it helps my lashes.
3. Maybelline Color Show Nail Varnish in “City Smoke“(£2.99). I really wanted to buy a grey toned nail varnish and this one looks promising. I will paint my nails tonight and post a quick update for you on the colour on my Instagram.
We now reached the end of this haul! I hope that you enjoyed reading it and want to see more in the near future of course.
Let me know if you own any of these products and what you think of them.
As I mentioned above I will be posting reviews on both of my Lush face masks and the rest of my beauty buys within the next couple of weeks. I’m excited to see what results they bring for my skin.
