I spend hours in Boots browsing, walking up and down the aisles picking up products and pondering. Then I walk down to the make-up section and spend another hour or two testing products all over my hands! The staff in my local Boots see a lot of me and this was proven this week, when a staff member asked how I was and what lip colour I was after today! This is a sign... a sign that I spend way too much time shopping in Boots and that I own too many lipsticks (oopsy!). But I answered and then carried on browsing and yes, I did by a few new lip products... and yes, Im sure I will be back again next week *giggles*. So today I just wanted to share with all you lovely people what I have bought this week and I would just like to add that Boots currently have a 3rd of skincare, so I have bagged some bargains and if you haven't, get down there - quick!
Funnily enough I didn't pay a penny for this little pot of Clinique eye cream! I received a voucher from Boots in the post, for free a sample pot (good times!). Im a huge fan of Clinique products and Im very much looking forward to giving this a go - especially as I'm loving eye products at the moment! This cream has been designed to help reduce dark circles, puffiness and fine lines. I actually really like the formula of this eye cream, it is a cream/gel constancy and this should help keep makeup in place, which is a huge plus, as eye creams can often move your makeup around.
To be frank, I had no idea what thermal spring water sprays actually were, until I came across the beauty blogging world! Thermal water sprays, contain a unique ingrediant which is renowned by dermatologists for its soothing properties. The thermal spring water is meant to help sooth sensitive, allergic and irritated skin. I cant wait to add this to my skincare routine, as it can be used after cleansing and also after applying make-up rather like a fixing spray. It also claims to help reduce redness, which is a huge plus for me as I suffer from blotchy skin. If this does exactly what it claims to do, theres a high chance I will repurchase this product in the future!
I'm just about to run out of my much loved Bioderma micellar solution. So when I saw that Boots had a third of skincare, I couldn't resist picking this up and giving it a go! I have read some very good reviews on this product and I'm hoping (fingers crossed) it is just as good, if not better than my Bioderma micellar solution - as the Bioderma solution is a little on the pricey side. For all of you, who have no idea what Im talking about, micellar solution dissolves make-up and is essentially a water cleanser and make-up remover and I love the stuff!
I love a good face mask, there is nothing better than pampering yourself! Agreed? After receiving Michael Todd's charcoal face mask for my birthday, I have gone face mask crazy and I cant get enough of them. This is another product which I have seen featured on a few blogs. Im very excited to give this one a try. This is also my first purchase from Una Brennan and Im looking forward to seeing what this skin care brand has to offer! Have you tried any of their products?
This has sold out everywhere! I went to several different Boots stores in the hope of buying this product and found it on my 5th attempt! This product has been raved about online, so Im not surprised it was sold out pretty much everywhere - especially with a third off the price! This serum simply increases skin's hydration level and minimises the need to moisturise as frequently. I have very dry skin, so anything that is going to give my skin a hydration boost is must have for me! I must admit out of all the products I have purchased here, Im most looking forward to using this one - I hope I'm not disappointed, as it is pricey at £24.99 for just 30ml!
This is a new liquid pen liner from Rimmel. I thought I would give it a go as I love a good eyeliner! Especially one which is easy and quick to use. What I like about this eyeliner pen is that it is 3D and slanted, so you can achieve both thick or thin lines in one stroke! The eyeliner is also waterproof and smudge proof! What more could you ask for?
Revlon Lip Butters £7.99 each or two for £10.00:
Who doesn't love Revlon Lip Butters? If you don't own one... you must! And if you do, what is your favourite? The formula is lovely and great for those who aren't keen on lipsticks as the colour is sheer yet buildable. They are also very hydrating and come in some brilliant shades. I picked up two -Strawberry Shortcake which is a subtle light pink and Wild Watermelon which is a near coral-red toned colour which is great for the summer and perfect for autumn! I just couldn't resist buying a couple more, as Relvon are currently offering two of their lip products for ten pounds - bargain!

I have a funny feeling some of these products could appear in my monthly favourites! Is there anything here that you would like to see a review on in the future?
