Superdrug Haul

I’ve only ever shared Lush hauls on my blog, so today I wanted to share a little haul from a different shop, and what’s better right now than Superdrug, with their incredible 3 for 2 offer across all cosmetics!?

I recently picked up some handbag essentials, alongside some other beauty treats for myself, so here’s what I picked up!IMG_2208Essentials

Maybelline Baby Lips Chap Stick | I’ve just ran out of all of my various lip balms, so I did need to pick another one up. I’ve definitely found that Baby Lips are by far the best to use, because they keep your lips moisturised for so much longer than any other lip balm. I decided this time to pick up an unscented and colour-free one because they are much more versatile, so I can wear this with anything.

Cuticura Antibacterial Hand Gel | In order to take full advantage of the 3 for 2 offer at Superdrug, I thought I’d pick up this because it is always so handy to have in your bag, and it can keep you from getting unwell! This particular one is ‘Fresh and Fruity’ and it does smell quite nice, still like an anti-bacterial hand gel, but nice.

Halo Hand Wipes | Similarly to the hand gel, I’ve found that hand wipes are so perfect to keep in your bag (especially if you’re a beauty blogger and you can’t go into any Boots, Superdrug, or any shop that sells makeup without swatching lipsticks, highlights, eye shadows, blushes etc all over your hands, only to step out of the shop looking insane and running the risk of staining your clothes.)

Dual Pencil Sharpener | Recently I’ve also bought some new lip liners and waterline eyeliners, and I realised that while they are perfect right now, at some point I am going to need to sharpen them! So this was another obvious essential for me. I also like that as a dual sharpener, you can sharpen bigger things too, like eyeshadow pencils.

Maybelline Colour Show Blushed Nudes Varnish | Maybelline have just released their Blushed Nudes collection, so when I saw this particular colour ‘Dusty Rose’ I really liked it, as it seemed like another perfect neutral colour for me to wear.

Maybelline Colour Show 60 Seconds Clear Shine | I’m currently running a test to find the best top coat/gel coat for avid nail varnish wearers, so I thought this particular top coat sounded like a promising contender. Don’t worry, I’ll let you know how it goes and which ones comes out best!

B. Blending Sponge | I recently had my eyes opened with makeup sponges. I found that no matter how much or how regularly I cleaned my makeup sponges, I could never remove what appeared to be tiny black dots, speckled in random places on the sponge. Like most people who own these sponges, I assumed it was just waterproof makeup that maybe I couldn’t remove. But it turns out, it’s actually mould. Doesn’t that freak you out?! So obviously, as soon as I found that out, I threw my sponges away, hence the new sponge.

Collection Lasting Colour Gel Eyeliner | I’ve loved wearing winged liner for so many years now, and I’ve used liquid liner, pencils, and felt pens, but never a gel eyeliner. So because of it’s incredibly affordable price, followed by Superdrug’s amazing 3 for 2 offer, I thought I’d pick up a gel eyeliner, and see how I get on!

Makeup Revolution Pro Fix Makeup Setting Spray | Just like the gel liner, I have heard lots of things, both good and bad, about makeup setting sprays, so I thought it’d be a good idea to test out a drugstore one, and if I like it, I might try out one of the Urban Decay ones.

Makeup Revolution Salvation Velvet Lip Lacquer | I’ll always be a sucker for various shades of pink lipsticks, so after swatching a fair few shades from Makeup Revolution, I decided that this shade, ‘What I Believe’, was a lot more vibrant than any shades I already own, and I really like it, especially for Spring and Summer looks.

Collection Colour Lash Colour Mascara | One of my very fabulous best pals (sneaky shoutout, you know who you are) told me that she actually uses a clear mascara to keep her brows tame throughout the day, and I thought this was a freaking genius idea! I know that you can buy clear brow gels, but this mascara is 3 times as big as those, so I thought this is definitely a better value for money.


That’s everything for my Superdrug haul! I hope you guys enjoyed this post, and that you take advantage of the 3 for 2 deal that Superdrug are currently holding, it’s definitely one you don’t want to miss!

Is there anything I’ve talked about that you’ve tried? Let me know how you got on with it!

BLOGMAS Day 7 // Winter & Christmas Lush Haul

Hey guys! As we all know that Lush have brought out their Christmas and Winter collections, featuring many old favourites, and some new exciting products, I thought today I’d take you through some of my favourite Winter and Christmas products from this year! This is the biggest Lush haul I have ever done, so let’s jump right into the products!

Winter & Christmas Lush Haul Winter & Christmas Lush HaulWinter

Big Shampoo | This shampoo will transform your hair. During these colder months, I find that my hair tends to go rather limp, and it becomes very difficult to style. But this sea salt shampoo massages and invigorates your scalp when you use it, causing the root of the hair to lift and have more hold. I absolutely love it.

Big Bang Bubble Bar | With the scent of grapefruit oil, and added avocado butter to nourish and moisturise the skin (not to mention a space theme!) I love everything about this bubble bar. As always, just crumble as much of the product that you desire under running water, and enjoy your bubble bath! 

Shoot For The Stars Bath Bomb | Brace yourselves, but this may just be my favourite Lush product of all time. (I still love you Karma & Rose Jam!) Again, it’s space themed so that’s a major plus for me, but this bath bomb holds within it something that I adore, the night sky. The tagline for this bath bomb is “Paint the night sky” and it really lives up to that, turning your bath into a gorgeous pool of lavender, blues and pinks.

Candy Mountain Bubble Bar | This bubble bar is adorable and comforting, so very often just what we could do with at the end of a very long working week. It’s also quite a safe bet to be a widely popular product, because it’s vanilla scented, so it’s not overly powerful or harsh to smell.

Magic Wand Bubble Bar | This magic wand really is magic. Just swirl it around in your bath, and it’ll create a gorgeous, cotton candy scented pink bubble bath! I’d also recommend these wands because they are incredibly long lasting. If like me, you all too often end up using a bubble bar in one bath, instead of breaking it into two or three baths, these wands really stand the test of time, because you’re not breaking it up, you’re just swirling it around.

5 Gold Rings Bubble Bar | Just like the wands, I really like this bubble bar because it lasts much longer than an ordinary bubble bar, as it’s already split into five very handy sections. This bubble bar is also vanilla scented, so it’s also a perfect Christmas gift for anyone who loves bubble baths, but might find many Lush products a bit too strong scent-wise.

Peeping Santa Bubble Bar | His eyes are chocolate. Need I say more? Now I know you won’t be eating it, but there’s definitely something so extravagant and fabulous as knowing that you’re bathing in dairy free chocolate and hand-churned Shea butter, this bubble bar is not only extremely Christmassy and adorable, but the very definition of Treat. Yo. Self.

Snow Angel Bath Melt | This product is a little different. As it’s not a bath bomb or a bubble bar, you don’t have to crumble it up or pop it in your bath and watch the fizzing and swirling ensue. No, this is a bath melt, which means it assists in melting away all of your tension and stress, and that’s before you’re even in the bath! This bath melt quite literally floats atop the water, slowly melting and producing the most glistening and glimmering layer of snow on the surface of the water. It also contains cocoa butter, which is incredibly moisturising for the skin, with a scent of marzipan and rose. This bath melt is a Christmas miracle.

Father Christmas Bath Bomb | Once you’ve looked at this bath bomb, you might have pictured what you’d expect from it. Well all I can say is, throw those preconceptions away, because it’s almost 100% guaranteed that you are entirely wrong about it. This peach and white bath bomb, is actually, the deepest, most vibrant green you could ever imagine bathing in. I adore it when Lush surprise us with a bath bomb like this, because it’s like being let in on a little secret. Again, another very sweet candy floss scented bath bomb, this is definitely one of my Christmas favourites.

Luxury Lush Pud Bath Bomb | A magnificent burst of colour in an otherwise very dull and lifeless winter evening. This bath bomb is just what you need to lift your spirits, while relaxing you with a calming lavender scent at the same time. I think this bath bomb would actually make a great gift for a first time Lush user, as it’s fun and bright, but not strong or complicated, just pop it in the bath and you’re a Lush pro!

Magic Of Christmas Wand Bubble Bar | With cinnamon and almond scents, this bubble wand smells like the epitome of Christmas baking. Again, I’d recommend these bubble wands because they are so long lasting, and let’s be honest, super fun to use.
