How I bankrupted myself in October...

28 comments
Hey Lovelies,
Some of you may have noticed that I haven't posted a haul on here in ages. That's because I have been trying to be good by saving money and trying to downsize my make up collection. However we did recently have a couple of double discount days at work, so I decided to take full advantage and stock up on a few old favourites. I also bought a few things I've been eyeing up for ages, so let me give you the low down on how I bankrupted myself, sorry I mean on what I bought!
Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair
 Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair, 50ml, RRP £65.00
Recently I got a sample of the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum which I fell in love with as soon as I tried it, so I decided to invest in a full size bottle. I am so excited to start using this serum and I will definitely do a review of it in a months time to let you know how I am getting on with it, but so far I can confirm that this stuff is amazing and I have already seen improvements to my skin in the short time I've been using it.
Clarins Multi Active Night Cream
Clarins Multi Active Night Cream, 50ml, RRP £43.00
Clarins is by far my favourite skincare brand, and I am so happy to have their Multi Active Night Cream back in my life. This, together with the Clarins Multi Active Day Cream are by far the best moisturisers I have ever used. The Clarins Multi Active Night Cream is designed for those of us in our late 20s-30s. The formula was developed with the aim to encourage skin renewal and help reduce the appearance of fine lines and early wrinkles. I've been using this night cream for a few years now, and judging by the condition of my skin, it really works wonders! 
Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer
Smashbox Photofinish Oil Free Foundation Primer, 30ml, RRP £25.00
I recently ran out of my MAC Prep and Prime Skin Base that I was using. I never bothered to repurchase it and the only other make up primer I had was the Laura Mercier Oil Free Primer which does not work for me. Usually I love Laura Mercier products but their oil free primer does not seem to keep my make up on for any longer or minimise the appearance of fine lines and pores. That's why I decided to get the Smashbox Photofinish Foundation Primer. I've used this primer before and loved it, and when I saw that Smashbox are donating £5 of every Photofinish Primer sold to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation I knew it was the right time to repurchase it.
Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch
Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch, 15ml, RRP £26.00
Another primer I bought was the Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch. I only apply this product on the areas of my face where I have fine lines and pores rather than all over, and it does a great job at filling them in and making my skin appear smoother.
Lancôme DreamTouch Dark Spot Corrector
Lancôme DreamTone Dark Spot Corrector, 40ml, RRP £69.00
The final item in my haul is the Lancôme DreamTone Dark Spot Corrector. My skin is pretty battered after years of sunbed use. I have quite a few dark spots on my face and I truly hate them. This is the first time I've ever tried a product that is specifically designed to reduce the appearance of dark spots, and I really hope this works because it would mean me becoming a little more skin confident. I am going to do a full review on this product once I've been using it for a while and let you know how I am getting on with it, so keep a lookout for that.
Well that's it for all the skincare I bought. I know I got a lot but all these products are either holy grail products for me, or I have been eyeing them up for a while now. Plus I haven't done a proper shop in ages so I thought it was finally time to treat myself again.
What have you bought recently?
