Boots Haul 005

A week ago today, it was my local Boots stores' first Advantage Card Evening where if you spent £50 or more, you would get £12 worth of points which is a pretty sweet deal that I simply couldn't resist. I picked up the infamous Soap & Glory Clean On Me Shower Gel which I've been lusting after for a while now since I finished up a travel sized version of this. I'm planning on using this as a shaving lotion rather than a shower gel as I find that this makes my legs feel so soft! I picked up two of my beloved Neutrogena Visibly Clear 2-in-1 Wash & Mask which I think I may start using primarily as my morning face wash. It's a dual product that you can use to either wash your face with or use as a face mask. I love using it for both as I think it does a pretty good job at such a cheap price. I also picked up the Boots Botanics All Bright Purifying Face Scrub to replace my Amie New Leaf Skin Exfoliating Polish. This looks like to have a similar consistency to the Amie scrub so I'm hoping that this works just as well. It contains walnut shell to buff away any dead skin whilst crushed up apricot seeds helps to gently get rid of any impurities. This was actually half price meaning that I only paid £1.54 for it!

I picked up four Palmers Cocoa Butter Original Lip Balms but I've only got one to picture as my Dads' partner wanted me to get her three. This is supposedly meant to be a really moisturising lip balm as it protects the lips whilst soothing them with Vitamin E. I also picked up another lip balm in the form of my beloved Nivea Essential Care Lip Balm which I seem to have dotted around in various bags/places. This keeps my lips moisturised for hours with added shea butter which helps to prevent my lips from drying out. I couldn't help but check out the Sinful Colors stand in the hope that they may finally have the shade Unicorn in stock as it's been out of stock at my local store since July time and I spotted that they had one in stock which I made a beeline for! It's a pale yellow shade which apparently applies very streaky but it can be helped with a white base beneath. I also picked up the shade Easy Going as it's such a beautiful pale ballerina nude colour which I've been lusting after for quite a few months now. Seeing as it's 3 for 2 across all cosmetics, I also picked up 24/7 which is a bright neon pink which I can't wait to wear during Summer.

One of the main reasons for this haul is the fact that I've finally got my mitts on the Boots Beauty Advent Calendar. This contains brands such as Nails Inc, Mavala, Vichy, Soap & Glory etc. Many people have said that they deem this to not be worth the money as they're mainly all samples with a few full sized products which I personally think is worth the money especially when you're paying £30 and it's worth £65. 

If you're wondering when the next Advantage Card evening is, it should be around about the 28th November depending on your local store so make sure you take full advantage! I'm actually planning on doing all my Christmas shopping at my stores next Ad Card Evening purely to take advantage of all the savings and deals that they'll have on.
