Well, well, well... I was suppose to be on a spending ban but... this happened:
In my defense, I did find some good deals. Boots currently have a third of Soap and Glory so it was the perfect excuse to try some new products. The first product I purchased was the Soap & Glory Ultimelt Deep Purifying Hot Cloth Cleanser. I have previously used the Soap & Glory Peaches and Clean 3-in-1 Wash off Deep Purifying Cleanser which I really liked, so I thought I would try another Soap & Glory cleanser. The hot cloth cleanser was down to £6.67 from £10. I've only used the cleanser a few times, so far so good. In my opinion, I would say it is better at removing my make up than the Peaches and Clean one, but I'm quite disappointed about the scent! All the Soap & Glory products I've tried (which is a lot) have smelt gorgeous but the smell of the Hot Cloth Cleanser is not my bag. Also... the new packaging of Soap & Glory products. I loved the old, fun, quirky packaging. The new packaging is nice, it looks very clean and smart but I definitely prefer the older packaging.
The other Soap & Glory product I picked up was the Soap and Glory Scrubatomic Daily Face Polish. I am yet to use the product, but picked it up as it was down to £6 from £9. I would definitely suggest checking out the Soap & Glory products, especially while they are reduced. Unlike the Ultimelt, the Scrubatomic smells goooooood.
I also picked up one of the Natural Collection Duo Eyeshadows. I chose the Mink and Sable combination, two very natural colours, perfect for the day time and a great price. I know everything in the Natural Collection line is under £2, so a bargain for two eyeshadows! I have previously tried the Natural Collection tinted moisturiser which I wasn't a fan off, I found it patchy and hard to blend in. However, I'm liking this eyeshadow duo. The pigmentation of the eyeshadows isn't great, but they do stay put for a long time. For this duo, I cover my eyelid with Mink and blend Sable into my crease. I will definitely check out some of the other Natural Collection Eyeshadow Duos.
Another make up product I picked up was the Rimmel Match Perfection foundation. I am a big fan of the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation, but I like to mix things up a bit. I wear both the Wake Me Up and Match Perfection in 100 Ivory. I know that in Savers, their Rimmel collection is all priced at £5 or less, so I would have picked it up in there. However, it was down to £5 in Boots, so I thought I'd get my Boots points out of it. I have been wearing it for a few days and I really am loving it. Although the Wake Me Up foundation is meant to leave a "radiant glow" I would say that I prefer the glow from the Match Perfection foundation. I will see how it goes for a few weeks.
And finally, I picked up the No7 Soft & Soothed Gentle Toner. I honestly only picked this up as I had one of the trusty No7 vouchers, which meant I had £5 off. I think the toner worked out at £2 or £3 which isn't bad at all! I haven't used the product yet, but I'm excited too. The No7 vouchers are valid until 6th October, so definitely try and pick one up. I have another ready and waiting.
Also, Boots have a 15% reduction on their iTunes voucher, so I picked up a £15 voucher as they always come in handy.
I would just like to add that I know these photographs aren't brilliant, but I am adjusting to a new camera.
Any other Boots bargains I should know about?
