Mini Boots Haul.

3 September 2014

So I went online and had a bit of a snoop on Boots about a week or two ago and ended up with these three bits. 

So I really needed a new face wash, since The Body Shop in Camden closed down yonks ago I’ve been really lazy about getting my Seaweed Cleansing Facial Wash (although it is really good, I rave about it here). I’ve heard about Biore from their pore strips and although I’ve never tried them I was intrigued by the brand. They seem to focus on blackheads a lot and I’m obsessed with getting rid of mine! I looked through their range of daily face washes and finally settled on this. I’ve been using it for the past week and I can’t fault it. The consistency is quite thick – it’s almost like a face mask rather than a cleanser. It warms up as the name suggests and then you just wash it away. I have indeed noticed that my blackheads are much less visible and I do think it is because of this face wash. 

The next thing I got was this mask. I already have a clay mask so I wanted something that would focus on radiance. I’ve heard good things about Good Things (see what I did there, it wasn’t even intentional) and it was 1/3 off so I decided to snap that up quickly! I’ve only actually used it once since I got it last week; I’ve had far too many late nights to bother with face masks, so I can’t give a verdict on this yet. It does smell super super good though and I really like the fact that it has white clay in it – drawing out impurities, all day, every day

 So this was my final purchase. I really need a new moisturiser and I was pretty much happy to spend anything on it. So I’m browsing as you do, and stumble across a Yes To Carrot moisturiser or something and I’m like interesting. So click onto the brand and find the products targeted at my skin type and it is the Yes To Tomatoes range and guys, I can’t deal, I hate tomatoes and don’t want my face smell of them. But further scrolling down sees they have products for uneven skin tones, which is me all over. So me wanting to try something new, AND finding something that is supposed to help the appearance of dark spots, resulted in this purchase. 

So after that long ramble what I have to say so far is I haven’t seen any changes, but I’ve been using it for a week. I’m certainly going to take pictures so I can compare my skin now to when I’m finished, as I feel with these things you might miss them when you’re hoping for a miraculous change. The one thing I do not like about this product though is the white cast it leaves on my face. It has a consistency like sun cream and leaves the white cast like sun cream, so I am not pleased. I also keep squirting too much out of the pump, which is super annoying. I’ve just gone back on Boots to link these and it’s been slashed down by a 1/3 – oh what a cruel world. 

So that is it for my skin haul, I’m sure I shall be back with a full review once I have used them all up! If you have any recommendations for oily and uneven skin I would love love love to hear them!

  1. How did you find the "Good Things" face mask?? I've had one that I've used maybe half a dozen times, and I can honestly say I haven't noticed much of a difference.

    1. I've only use it the once as I've had so many late nights I could not be bothered with a face mask! Ahh that's rubbish, I'm using quite a lot of brightening products atm so hopefully one of the will do something xxx


Leave me comments if you wish! I'd love to hear what you have to say :)
