Back again with another post!
This haul started with my flatmate who’d just ordered the Clinique anti-blemish solutions 3-step system kit (bit of a mouthful!) As she also suffers with blemish prone skin, so I thought I’d give it a try and you know how it is…if you’re gonna order something from Boots, you may as well pick up a few other bits and next thing you know you’ve bought enough to get free delivery.
I’m really looking forward to using the Clinique 3-step system, I’ve got high hopes for it and I’m fed up of having bad skin, which I’ve had since the age of about 10/11 so it’s about time for it to go! The first step is a cleansing foam which is said to give a ‘deep clean’, then a clarifying lotion to unclog pores and finally an all over clearing treatment to clear up blemishes. The whole kit was £25 which for a student is quite a hefty price but if it were to clear up my skin then it would be an absolute God-send.
The Chanel Hydra Beauty Micro Serum came free with the Clinique kit, given that I’ve got quite oily skin I think I’ll give this to someone else.
Next I’ll get the everyday stuff out of the way, I got 2 double packs of face pads because they were on buy-one-get-one-half-price and I got 2 tubes of Oral-B 3D White Brilliance because who doesn’t want whiter teeth? That was also on offer for buy-one-get-one-free. Also picked up a Witch stick for targeting individual ‘blemishes’. Phew, got the adult boring stuff out of the way, now onto the more interesting bits!
This is the NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Milan, I’ve heard quite good reviews so I thought I’d give it a try. The actual cream comes out slightly darker than the colour of the tube, like a plum-y fuchsia colour , hopefully the swatch is doing it justice, the consistency is very soft and creamy as you’d imagine given the name and it smells like gorgeous vanilla-ry, cake-y goodness.
This is the Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker Matte-Lip 3D Lip Colour & Sculpt in Pretty Muted. This is a medium pink with a very matte finish, I’ve actually got it on as I type this and I can tell you it is not at all drying which is really good as most matte lip products tend to dry lips out. I love these because you get the lip-plumping effect without the annoying tingly feeling that you get with other plumping products. Also the matte packaging is really cute, it smells of vanilla and at £3.50 it’s very affordable.
And finally this is the other Soap & Glory Sexy Mother Pucker but this is a Gloss Stick in the colour Nudist. It’s a light peachy colour and again has the same vanilla-ry scent, this is my second tube of it and it’s always my go-to lip on a night out as it’s plumping and you don’t have to worry about it smudging after having a drink like you would do with a darker colour.
That’s all folks!
