Boots Haul #3

Okay, so I kinda have a shopping problem, but what beauty blogger doesn't? I have been buying so much lately so I thought I would share one of my latest Boots Hauls. As if you need to read another eh? I only popped my last Boots Haul on the blog in February. You can take a look at that haul here. What can I say? I can not resist. Ever since this haul though I have to admit that I have gone a bit Boots crazy and bought a few more things. Some repurchases and some that have been on my wishlist for quite a while.
Boots Haul
The first things I popped into my basket upon entering Boots are the Toni & Guy Nourish Reconstruction Mask and the Toni & Guy Prep Heat Protection Mist. They weren't necessarily essentials but I hadn't tried anything from the brand before. It was a 2 for £10 deal that made my mind up. If you've heard me drone on about my locks via here or Twitter then you'll have learnt that I have quite dry, thin hair due to multiple hair dyes and bleaching in the past. My hair is back to its natural colour, bar the slight ombré effect in my hair from the blonde fading. I'm hoping the reconstruction mask will repair and nourish my hair back to its original state, or better.

As for the Heat Protection Mist, I wanted to try out something different and boy am I glad I purchased this. I've used it a few times before straightening and blow drying and it makes my hair feel super smooth afterwards. I may pop a review up on the blog in the future for anyone that's interested.

I didn't expect this but I ended up picking up not one, but two foundations. They were highly recommended by a few bloggers on the #bbloggers chat a few weeks ago. I picked up the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation in the shade Vanilla which is the lightest. I've used it once since buying and it's a bit dark for my skin tone but I quite like how dewy it looks. I also picked up the L'Oreal Matte Infallible Foundation in the shade Porcelain which is also a little dark for me but I make it work with a little blending. I love the coverage it gives. I've used it at least two or three times and I quite like it so far.

The only repurchase is the Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in Ivory. I haven't had it in my possession for a while and so I decided to pick it up again. I love to apply the concealer under the eyes as it really brightens up that area. 

I wouldn't say this is a repurchase but a few months ago the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water was released for a different skin type. The original is for normal and sensitive skins but the newest release is created for those with combination skin, which is what I have. I love the original for removing makeup so I'm glad there is one actually specifically made for my skin type. 

Lastly we come to the lipstick. I am completely obsessed with them. The latest addition to my lipstick stash is the L'Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick in Androgyne. I've only worn it once so far and it's a gorgeous light pink. Not too light but not leaning towards fuschia either.

Have you been Boots hauling lately?
