Boots Haul
Hey Lovelies,
I hope you've all had a great week! It's just dawned on me that since my return to blogging, I haven't posted any hauls yet. I myself am a bit of a nosey parker and love seeing what other people have bought, so I thought it's about time I treat you all to a little haul. Unfortunately this isn't one of my most exciting hauls, and for once I managed to go into Boots without spending a ridiculous amount of money (not a mean feat bearing in mind all the amazing offers they always have on haha!), but I still hope you enjoy this post! 
The first things to go into my basket in Boots were the Nivea Creme Care Shower Cream and the Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturiser. I've tried both of these products before and I loved them so it's no surprise I ended up repurchasing them. The shower cream is very rich and moisturising and my favourite shower cream from the brand. The Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturiser is a product I was introduced to by a friend last year. It's basically a moisturiser you apply to wet skin and rinse of in the shower. I love using this product on the days when I can't be bothered to apply a body butter or moisturiser after my shower.
I also replenished my Soap and Glory Flake Away body scrub. Over the years I have tried various different body scrubs and this particular one is one of my all time favourites. Not only does it smell amazing but it also really exfoliates my skin and gets of all of my fake tan without being harsh on my skin. I use the Soap and Glory Flake Away once a week the night before I apply fake tan. Soap and Glory do a whole range of body scrubs, and if you haven't tried their body scrubs yet, I highly recommend checking them out! All the scrubs do the job and smell lovely. They probably have a scent that suits everyone and what's more their scrubs are all very reasonably priced and quite often on 3 for 2 promotions. I don't know anyone who can resist a good old 3 for 2 offer at Boots haha!

Next up I picked up the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water and the Garnier Express 2 in 1 Eye Make-Up Remover. These days everyone and their dog has probably tried a micellar water at some point in their life. I think micellar waters are great make up removers and I like the Garnier one because you get 400ml for a very reasonable price. I use this to take my make up off before cleansing. I also used to use it in the morning to cleanse my face. However that completely dried out my skin so now I only use it as a make up remover now. You can also use it on your eyes but I wear some kind of smokey eye pretty much on a daily basis and this isn't strong enough to take off all my eye make up. Hence I also purchased the Garnier Express 2 in 1 Eye Make-Up Remover. This is one of those bi-phase make up removers that you need to shake well before using. It gets most of my eye make up off, but unfortunately not everything. So if you have any recommendations for an amazing eye make up remover please leave them in the comments down below because I am on the lookout for something new and amazing! That said, the Garnier Express 2 in 1 Eye Make-Up Remover is still a decent product that does a good job at gently removing everyday eye make up. It's also very reasonably priced so I really can't grumble haha!
Boots Haul
The last 2 items that went into my basket weren't actually on my shopping list. Well what's a trip to Boots without a couple of impulse buys! I'm actually pretty good with my skincare routine and doing my make up. Hair however, is a different story. I wish I was good at doing hair but to be honest all I can do is straighten it. With my shampoo, conditioner and hair oils I am pretty loyal to brands like Ojon and Bumble and Bumble. However what I do not use as part of my haircare routine are heat protectors. Rookie error I know haha, especially as I use hair straighteners or curling irons on a weekly basis! When I saw these two products whilst browsing the aisles of my local Boots I thought why not give them a go. I am after all trying to grow my hair, so using a heat protection spray is pretty much a must. I really liked the pink packaging and this is what attracted me to the VO5 Nourish My Shine Heat Protector and their Heat Protect Styling Spray. I am loving the VO5 Nourish My Shine Heat Protector because it's a lightweight and non-greasy oil that leaves my usually dry hair feeling lovely, smooth and frizz-free. I found that my hair dries faster when I use it. As the name suggests, Heat Protect Styling Spray helps to protect your hair from the heat as you blow dry it. Personally I prefer the oil to the spray but I think both products are essentially designed to do very similar things so I suppose it's really a matter of preference when deciding which formula to chose!
Well that's it for my little Boots haul. It's now the end of the month and I am pretty sure I am not the only one who's counting down the days until payday!
Have you been to Boots lately and what was on your shopping list? 
I hope you've enjoyed this post and thank you for reading!
Until next time,

  2. Flake away is my fave to exfoliate my skin before and during self tan applications! I agree they all smell lovely!

  3. I love the in shower moisturiser - it's so nice to not need an extra step when I get out of the shower (ultimate lazy girl...) I use Micellar water as a first cleanse, but like you said it does need something more for any elaborate make-up etc.
