Boots & Superdrug haul

Am I the only one who can't walk past a boots or a superdrug (our drugstores here in the uk) without popping in for a 'look around'? Of course, this look around usually turns into a miniature spending spree thanks to those 2 for 1 deals, the 3 for 2's and the huge array of new and exciting products. However - when your bank balance is a little bit low (understatement of the century) then you have two options; either window shop and browse without buying, which I find to be impossible or bust out your loyalty card and use those points you've been saving up without even realising! Which is exactly what I did, who new I had almost £20 floating around on my boots advantage card? 

boots and superdrug haul skincare haircare
Batiste lace dry shampoo - £2.01 (clearance, normally £2.99) boots 
Clean and Clear advantage clear and sooth foaming wash - £3.32 (normally £4.99) Superdrug 

Superdrug haul rasberry and macademia haircare
Raspberry & macadamia shampoo and conditioner - 99p and buy one get the second HALF PRICE! Superdrug 

Makeup haul boots maybelline baby lips rimmel stay matte powder
Maybelline baby lips in cherry me, peach kiss and pink punch - £2.99 each 3 for 2 boots 
Rimmel stay matte powder translucent - £3.99 boots
how to hair grips bobby pins
2 packets of superdrugs large hair clips - £1.39 each  buy one get the second half price 

So that's it, nothing to excited but mostly essentials. I made a few repurchases of things I use constantly; the dry shampoo, hair grips and stay matte powder! Of course, I didn't need the baby lips but I really wanted to try them and spending £5.98 on 3 lip products isn't really that bad - review coming soon. I'm excited to try the new clean and clear foaming face wash as it's oil free and my skin has been a nightmare with oil and breakouts recently. The shampoo and conditioner were a very good deal at just £1.48 for the both of them and they smell delicious, I'll let you know my thoughts on them later on in the month too. I think I was pretty well behaved don't you?

  9. I included the Stay Matte powder in my Holy Grails post today! I think I'll be repurchasing it forever. Would love to hear your thoughts on the shampoo and conditioner as they sound like they'd smell amazing (if you see what I mean!).
