Boots Haul

Now we all know it’s nigh on impossible to head into Boots and not buy anything, especially if you’re a beauty addict like me. So on a recent trip into town, I wasn’t surprised that I accumulated a little basket of goodies, and here I am with a good old Boots Haul for you.

A rarity for me is buying haircare, but if you’ve seen my post on my love of Lee Stafford, you’ll know I’m a sucker for anything in that iconic pink packaging. On this jaunt into my favourite high street store, I was pleasantly surprised to see Lee Stafford Hair was on 3 for 2, so I picked up a few bits, obviously. I’m desperately trying to grow my hair, so when I saw the Hair Growth Shampoo and Conditioner, it didn’t take long for me to find them both in my basket. I’m hoping that this will aid me on my quest for long, luxurious mermaid hair (ha, who am I kidding?), plus I figured it was about time that I found a shampoo and conditioner duo that I could use religiously. I normally flit between whatever’s open, but I felt like a go-to hair washing combination was in order. I’m excited to see how these go.

To complete the 3 for 2 offer, I picked up the Treatment For Hair That Doesn’t Grow Past A Certain Length. I first bought this years ago, and never really used it, but Gaby over at VelvetGh0st raves about this stuff, so I thought I’d add it to my bag. I’ll try anything to improve the conditioner of my hair really. It’s been battered with heat and colour, and with a potentially drastic hair change on the horizon, it feels only right to pamper my hair for once. Fingers crossed.

Now I can’t go into Boots without a little mooch around the makeup stands, and on this particular trip I was drawn to Maybelline. This doesn’t happen very often in all honesty, but I was interested to see if they had the matte 24 Hour Colour Tattoos. And I was pleased to see the Creamy Mattes shadow in Crème De Nude. I’ve been looking for a nude base to use for my eyeshadow, and though everyone raves about Mac Paintpots, I was a little apprehensive to spend so much on a base. Hopefully this will be a good drugstore alternative at just £4.99 each. This looks like a nice nude shade, and will hopefully work brilliantly to make my eyeshadow last that little bit longer (essential when you’re putting makeup on for work at 5am).

I also thought that I’d pick up a replacement tube of the Baby Skin Primer. I used to use this before I tried Benefit’s Porefessional, and I thought I could give it another go. I remember really liking this, and hopefully it’ll work well as a day-to-day base for my foundation.

And that concludes everything I picked up on my recent trip into my local Boots. What are some of your favourite items to pick up in Boots? Anything I should keep my eye open for on my next visit?
