Unfortunately, it has come to my attention that I am unable to resist a 'bargain' price and I cannot simply walk into boots to buy a bottle of water. I have to peruse the new makeup releases, browse skin care offers and load up my basket with goodies - only to leave the store with a lighter purse. This is exactly what happened on my recent trip to boots, I popped in for a drink and left 30 minutes later with a shedload of products in my carrier bag. Brilliant self control there, Jess.
A couple of these items were purchased at the beginning of the week, and these were the Real Techniques expert face brush which came in a £10 and has been used non-stop since being purchased. I've really enjoyed using this to apply my foundation quickly and evenly. I also picked up one of the balmi lip balms in coconut from Boots which I haven't tried out yet but I am excited to do so and a Schwarzkopf Got 2 be rockin it dry shampoo from poundland!
Then, onto the bargain boots haul which included zero self control. Firstly I discovered a new release from Bourjois which is the 'Happy Light' matte serum primer which is on an introductory offer of £6.99 (usually £10.99). I'm yet to find a 'drugstore' primer I really like so I thought I'd use this intro offer as the opportunity to try this! There is also a skincare offer on at the moment which is 3 for 2, and I knew I wanted to pick up one of the Vaseline Spray & Go moisturisers which are £4.99. With this, I also chose the Biore blemish fighting ice cleanser for £4.99 as I'm looking for some new skincare products to help with breakouts. For my third item in the 3 for 2 I chose this Witch Blemish Gel spot treatment after reading a couple of reviews on blogs about drugstore blemish treatments. This was £3.29 but free with the skincare offer!
I noticed that Witch Skincare also had a skin clearing primer available and thought that this was something I'd be interested in! It didn't have a price on the shelf, but after asking one of the staff it turned out to be on offer for £2 instead of the usual £6.99. It also happened to still be in the 3 for 2, so the savvy shopper in me decided to purchase 3 of them for just £4 in the hopes that it is something I will like! Off I went to pay at the till, and ended up grabbing a 50ml bottle of ck one which was half price at £11.50 - and this is being stored away ready for an xmas pressie!
So I definitely got some bargains there! In total I purchased over £85 worth of products for just £43! I'd say that was definitely a bargain boots haul!
