Boots and Superdrug Haul

You know when you seem to run out of loads of essentials all at the same time? Yep, that happened to me last week - time for a drugstore haul! Lots of this stuff isn't super interesting, but I like looking at what essentials other people pick up, so I thought I may as well share all that I got with you.

I normally use Morrison's own Make-up remover for getting off eye makeup, but there's not a Morrison's near where I live at the moment. I only like liquid removers, so I chose this Nivea one; hopefully it's effective! The superdrug facewashes are the only substance I've found that remove my favourite foundation (Revlon Colourstay). I like to put a pump on a cleansing wipe.

I picked up a new Revlon Colourstay in 'Buff', as I was running dangerously low. It's a great foundation for oilier skins, with a full coverage. Then I just had to get the Clinique Super Primer. I'm loving Clinique recently, and their Super Primer Face Primers colour correct a range of concerns - I got the one for correcting redness, but there's also ones for correcting sallowness and dullness. The most exciting purchase of the haul is the expert face brush. I love Real Techniques brushes, and I'm hoping this will live up to buffing brush I've been using to apply my foundation recently.

Boring but essential - Nizoral Dandruff Shampoo because I am cursed with a horrible scalp, two antibacterial handwashes, and two shower puffs (mine always fall apart after a month or so).

Anddd... A few random purchases. Sally Hansen's famous Insta-dri for drying nail polish quickly - why did I not get this sooner?? Soap and Glory's Sugar Crush body wash, as I'm obsessed with the scent from their sugar crush scrub, a deodorant, another bottle of my beloved Vaseline Spray and Go Moisturiser, and three packs of Boots own Blotting Papers (which are amazing and great value for money).

  6. This reminds me that I need to purchase make-up removers since I'm running low. I still can't decide between a facial wash remover or cream remover (both are low, and so is my bank account :P). My routine is either I take it off when I'm showering (facial wash) or I sit down and squeeze some cream onto a pad and wipe my face.

  7. Great haul :) I really want to go beauty shopping right now haha x

  8. Great haul I recently noticed the technique brushes in superdrug for half price and really wanted to get them will have to next time I am in :) x

  9. I like that Nivea make-up remover. And that topcoat by SH is amazing!
