Small Boots Haul

Hey Everyone, hope you're all having a great week so far. Todays post is about a few things I picked up today. So I went into Boots to get a few essentials and as always I got totally distracted. I don't know if anyone else is like that but I can spend ages wandering around Boots, checking out all the new products and offers. Im a total nightmare! They had 3 for 2 on all cosmetics and 3 for 2 on all hair care. Obviously I had to take advantage of this and ended up buying a few things that weren't on my list. I told you.. total nightmare! So here is what I bought...

1. Real Techniques Core Collection Brushes £21. I've wanted this set of brushes for quite a while but have never got round to buying them. Seeing as it was 3 for 2 on cosmetics and accessories I thought now would be a good time. I do own a couple of Real Techniques brushes and they are by far my favourite. The bristles are really soft and I love the fact the handles are coloured according to what they are used for. I think I'll do a post on them at some point to give them a full review.

2. John Frieda Luxurious Volume Shampoo and Conditioner £5.89. I have very fine hair and always need a bit of a boost to give it some body. I love trying out different volume shampoos and seeing what difference they make to my hair and whether they actually work! This is my second bottle of this shampoo, I loved it so much. I think it really gives my hair that much needed volume and smells fantastic. So I decided to purchase another one and the conditioner to match. Might as well have the complete set after all.

3. Blink Intensive Tears Eyedrops £6.49. This one isn't very exciting but I thought I'd include it all the same. Since about February I have suffered with very dry eyes and they can be quite uncomfortable so these eyedrops are my life saver! They just make my eyes feel refreshed and moisturised. A must have in my bag!

4. Maybelline Colossal Volume Mascara £7.19. I bought the smokey version of this mascara before and I loved it so I thought I'd give this 100% black version a go. It just makes my eyelashes look super long and very black, something I find very important in a mascara. It also doesn't smudge under the eyes which is definitely a plus.

5. Revlon Nail Art £7.99 each. Anyone who knows me, knows that I love nail polish. So when I saw these I knew I had to have them. They do three different types. Moon Candy which has 3D sparkles,  Neon which has a white polish to go underneath to make it pop and Expressionist which includes a skinny brush to paint patterns with. Obviously seeing as it was 3 for 2, I bought one of each. I got them in the colours 'Eclipse', 'Pink Glow' and 'Silhouette'. I cant wait to try them out! No doubt I'll be posting photos on Instagram in the next few days.

So there you have it, some of the products I purchased today. Have you tried any of these products? What did you think?
