Had a little bit of a shopping spree earlier when I was at Windsor, a town I hadn't been to for years (and when I say years I mean since I was about 3) and it was an absolute delight. Lovely shops alongside an amazing castle and a place I would highly recommend. I went into a lot of shops but ended up buying things from The Body Shop, Boots and Lush, not really surprising since I'm a total make up nerd. If there is anything you want me to fully review please leave me a comment as I read every comment and pay attention to your requests! So here is what I bought...
First I went into The Body Shop and was overwhelmed by the choice. I was specifically looking for two things, one of which a more natural toner. The toner I currently use is one by Clinique but I'm pretty convinced I am allergic to the entire three-step which I purchased so when I saw this it looked perfect. I made sure I bought something alcohol-free and this was what I found. Aloe Calming Toner by The Body Shop only came in at £8.00 which seemed like a good price for a toner.
The second item I was looking for was a body butter and I ended up getting three for £10.00 which again seemed like a bit of a bargain. I had started by smelling each individual flavour they have and had decided Satsuma was the most gorgeous. But then I saw these hidden away on the shelf, three miniatures for ten quid and they had several different combinations and decided the Satsuma, Lemon and Cocoa were best for me. I can't wait to try these!!
After The Body Shop I took a trip to Boots next door where I picked up some nail varnish and lip butters. The two nail varnishes I picked up were, surprise surprise, Essie ones. I bought the infamous Fiji which I have heard so many positives about, a gorgeous very pale pink. I also bought Mint Candy Apple which is the perfect Spring mint shade. I am so excited about trying both of these nail varnishes out. I've never been in a Boots with a specific Essie stand so I was over the moon to find this one!
From Boots I also purchased two of the extremely blogged about Lip Butters by Revlon (£7.99). The samples were pretty disgusting and mashed up which made it incredibly difficult to choose the shades but I ended up going with Cherry Tart and Candy Apple (£7.99). There was a buy one half price deal going on at the Revlon stand too which made me buy two instead of just the initial one I had intended to. As a newcomer to the lip world I am looking forward to trying these sheen and moisturising balms.
Next I took a visit to Lush. A shop I've avoided for the last few years due to it's overpriced goods (in my opinion) and ridiculous smell. Although the products are lovely, I don't understand how the workers manage there, my boyfriend had to step outside whilst I chose my face mask due to the smell simply being too much. They were very helpful in there and recommended the Love Lettuce face mask, at £5.95 this seemed quite steep, please don't tell me this is only one masks worth?
The final product of the day was the Bubblegum Lip Scrub (£5.25) which I've heard so so so many positive things about. My lips have been pretty dry since the loss of my two carmex pots (I still blame Dan Ruth) so this is my new replacement. Plus it tastes amazing....
I'm really pleased with all the products I bought today and can't wait till trying them. I'm sure I'll review them all but if there are any you urgently want to hear about please let me know and I sure will deliver!
