Hey pretties, how are you all doing? Remember this last haul post where I said that I will do another one pretty soon? Well, here it is and this one mostly focuses on the skin and hair products that I bought from Boots in London. As you know, Boots is a huge pharmacy chain in the UK and other countries and in the shops you get a pretty big variety of makeup, skincare, hair and other products from both drug store and high-end brands. There is a Boots store just next to where my office is in London and every day I used to go there after work to check out what new products have arrived. Want to see what I got? Read on..
My Boots Haul
Skin care products
Nivea MicelleAir Professional Makeup Removers for Face and Eyes – This range just launched when I was there last month and the description quite intrigued me. I’ve been a fan of Micellar water for a few years now and my favorite brands are Bioderma and Simple. I picked up these products because they are supposed to contain not only micellar water but also dry oil which should make removing waterproof makeup very easy. Also, they were available at a very good launch price.
Boots Tea Tree & Witchhazel Cleansing and Toning Lotion – The in-house range of skincare available at Boots is very good and their Tea tree & Witchhazel range I read is quite popular. Tea Tree is antibacterial and Witchhazel calms down skin so this product is supposed to deep cleanse and tone the skin and also fight acne and blemishes. I have been using it for a few days now and the product really works to make the skin squeaky clean.
Boots Tea Tree & Witchhazel Jelly Moisturiser with Berry Extracts – I needed an oil-free moisturiser to battle the extreme heat and humidity in Kolkata and this one seemed ideal. The range with berry extracts is new and this gel moisturiser is supposed to also give long lasting shine control and help prevent the appearance of spots. I’ve started using it and I love the refreshing formula and the fact that it keeps my skin hydrated for a long time without making it oily and greasy.
Hair Care Products
Aussie Deep Treatment 3 Minute Miracle – Everywhere in London I kept seeing ads of the Aussie Deep Treatment products and when I saw that they were available in Boots for a bundle pack of three for 10 pounds, I had to get my hands on them. I kept two products for myself giving away one – Moisture and Colour variant. These are basically deep conditioning hair masks that promise super smooth, silky and hydrated hair. I am using the Colour mask but I don’t really find it extraordinary. It is not bad and it does make my hair smooth but my ends still get dry and the mask does not seem to work on that very well.
Rimmel Mascaras – Rimmel makes some of the best mascaras out there that are really affordable. I picked up two this time – Scandaleyes Wow Wings, a new launch and Volume Colourist with a lash tint colouring formula. Yet to use either of them and will let you know my feedback once I do.
Rimmel InstaFix & Go Primer & Setting Spray – I needed a setting spray and I did not want to spend a lot of money on one so got this Rimmel product which is supposed to be both a primer and a setting spray. Will share my review on it soon.
So that was my small Boots haul. Have you tried any of the products that I bought? If yes, do let me know your experience in the comments below.
Till next time, Ciao.
