Boots Haul Part 2

Hello Lovelies,

I hope you are all having a good week! What has everyone been up to so far? And does anyone have any nice plans for the weekend?

I've got my second part of my Boots Haul today. For those of you who haven't seen part one (which is mainly about make up items I bought) and would like to have a look click here.

Here are the other bits I bought when I went shopping last Saturday:
John Frieda Precision Foam Colour in Medium Ash Brown
This is a permanent home here dye. Well it says permanent but I've found that all drugstore hair dyes I've ever used are never permanent and tend to fade after a while. 
The application with this is quite very easy. It's a foam dye that you apply to dry hair. You leave it on for 20 minutes then rinse and apply the conditioner provided in the pack. 
What I like about this hair dye is the colour lasts longer than a lot of other drugstore hair dyes I've tried. I always use brown dye to colour my hair. 
My hair is quite a light brown and I prefer it darker. With most drugstore hair dyes I've used, browns always come out almost black rather than brown. 
This one however comes out a rich brown colour. If you'd like to see what the colour looks like have a look at the 3rd pic in my Battersea Coats and Collars Ball post.That picture was taken  4 days after I dyed my hair using the John Frieda Precision Foam Colour in Medium Ash Brown.
Carex Moisture Plus Hand Gel
I always have a hand gel in my handbag but recently I noticed that my hand gel had past it's sell by date. I never even knew hand gels have sell by dates but I guess their bacteria killing properties must expire after a certain amount of time. I decided to get this one after I saw my friend using it. The regular hand gels can be quite drying on the skin, so this one is great as it kills 99.9% of bacteria whilst also moisturising your hands. This absorbs very quickly into the hands and isn't sticky or drying. It smells  nice but you can still tell it's a hand sanitiser rather than a hand cream. This one does not have an expiry date on it, even though my old Dettol hand sanitiser did.
 The Original Tangle Teezer 
I've been meaning to pick up one of these for ages but kept forgetting. So finally I bought one. I decided to go for the dark blue colour with glitter in it rather than the pink one as I dye my hair myself so I didn't want a brush on which hair dye stains might possibly show (my bathroom is very nicely decorated with fake tan and hair dye stains!)
The lovely Daisy from Daisycakes posted a full review on the Tangle Teezers which you can read by clicking here. Thank you Daisy for your post. Reading it reminded me to buy one of these!
Original Source Shea Butter and Honey Shower Gel
I've never tried anything before by this brand but it was on offer in Boots for only £1.00 so I picked up a bottle. I've not tried this yet but it smells really nice so I have high hopes for this! Have any of you tried it yet?

Well that's it for the second part of my Boots haul!

I hope you've enjoyed the post. I need to wait until payday before I can go shopping again! What's on your Boots / drugstore wish list? I need some ideas please as I have a few double points vouchers I'd like to use up.

  1. Wouldlove to know your thoughts on the Tangle Teezer, as I've heard really mixed reviews!
    I haven't used Original Source in years, but I used to absolutely love the Orange one. The one you have picked up sounds as though it will smell lovely!

    1. I really like it, but it took a while to get used to as it hasn't got a handle which was a bit weid at first. The bristles are quite short as well but it work really well on wet or dry hair!
      I can't believe I've never used Original Source before, I'll check out the orange one next time I'm at Boots :) xx

  2. Hi Nuala! Great blog! I'll be visiting often & checking everything out in details! :)

    Original Source Shea Butter and Honey Shower Gel looks too good. I haven't tried this product before but something tells me it smells great & is really smooth. Tell me more about it. Very cool haul. :)


    1. Thanks Sarah that means so much glad you like it! I'll let you know how I like it once I've used it xxx

  3. I got the TT for my birthday in may and haven't used any other brush since! I love it, makes brushing thick/knotted hair so much easier xx

    1. I know, it's great! took me a while to get used to the no handle bit but really like it now :) xxx

  4. I need to get a Tangle Teezer. Been growing my hair and with the extra length has come a hell of a lot of extra tangles :( Eeek! Def gonna pick one of them up. And I have also never tried Original Source. Don't know why! x


Thank you for taking the time to read this post! I love reading all your comments and if you have any questions do check back as I will always do my best to get back to you as soon as possible!
