I only went in for one thing!!!

Reasons why I shouldn't be allowed in Boots alone: See Above. Honestly, I went in to pick up one little thing that I'd heard so much about and mean to pick up for ages, and look, just look at what happens! I don't even have the "I was killing time" excuse, as actually I was in a rush and all that damage was done in less than ten minutes - what's wrong with me!?!

Dove Hair Nourishing Oil Leave-in Spray £3.59 // This was the one thing I actually went in to pick up - my hair has not been in a great mood lately and I'd heard from several of my most loved bloggers, that this was the best budget buy for my needs. I've only used it once or twice as yet, but so far so good I think.

Botanics Ultra Calm Gentle Cleansing Cream £4.49 // Still hunting for a cleanser that really works for me and thought I'd try out a cleansing cream and see how I get on with that. I've used Botanics stuff before (though it was a loooonng time ago now), but it's always been OK for my skin, so let's see how this goes.

Quick Fix Facials Mega Moisture Gel Mask £4.99 // I don't have a whole lot of experience in the face mask department and so I figured you have to start somewhere really - and frankly, this packaging was just so pretty. Haven't tried this one out yet, but don't necessarily have the highest hopes that it won't anger my skin.

Sure Compressed Deodorant £3.19 // I'd been meaning to try out the compressed cans for a while and so grabbed one while I was in Boots (well, I'd picked everything else off the shelves...) to see if it really is the same as a normal can to use. It is. Thank goodness we can all stop lugging around big cans (heehee) now; better for the environment ... and my handbag space.

Boots Coconut and Almond Leave in Conditioner £1.49 // Apparently forgetting that I had just picked up the Dove equivilant of this I grabbed this - like I said, I really need to sort my hair out, I'm trying anything and everything!

Bourjois Healthy Balance Compact Powder £8.99 // Firstly, I'd just like to say, I did not buy this powder purely because it smells so good... well... maybe. Powder's not something I use often given that oiliness is the last skin concern I have, but still, it's good to have a powder.

Bourjois Paris Colour Edition 24h Eyeshadow £6.99 // I picked up the shade "Kaki Cheri". I've been loving the Maybelline equivilant of these, but alas the colour range isn't great so I thought I'd test out Bourjois' offering as a couple of the colours are gorgeous.

Bourjois Contour Clubbing Eyeliner £4.99 // I do enjoy a good coloured eyeliner; a great way to push the boat out and play it safe at the same time. 

Revlon Lip Butter in Creme Brulee £7.99 // Love this lip butter, the perfect grunge nude shade to go with a good smokey eye. I love the formula of this range in general - very soft and gentle on the lips but still with a surprisingly good hit of colour.

Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in Kiss Pearl £7.19 // A beautiful soft pink that once again, looks great with a grungy smokey eye... can you guess how I'm wearing my eye makeup lately...?

Bourjois Little Round Pot Blusher in Rose D'Or £7.99 // There was some kind of Bourjois offer at the time where I ended up getting this free. I didn't need it and I wouldn't necessarily have chosen it otherwise, but it's super cute all the same - I love the dinky packaging and the little brush! 

Sleek Blush in Rose Gold £4.49 // In fairness, this was another product I'd been meaning to try out for ages but had always been out of stock. I'm so glad I waited and kept looking for it; what a gem this is - it's worth all the love it gets.

And so that's it folks, another haul filled with things I really shouldn't have bought in the first place - are you shocked? Still, I'm in love with some of the stuff I picked up - expect some more detailed posts soon!

Thanks for reading!
