Mini Haul


We all love a haul, so I thought I'd share with you what I've picked up over the last few weeks!

At the weekend I had half an hour spare before meeting a friend for dinner, so I popped into L'Occitane. A few weeks ago they had a competition on Facebook where if you helped them get to 75,000 likes and shared the competition, you would receive a voucher for a free 30ml hand cream in store worth £8.00. I went for the original shea butter hand cream. Along with the freebie, L'Occitane also offered 15% off an item of choice that had to be redeemed at the same time. I chose a 250ml bottle of Almond Shower Oil, as I've seen quite a few bloggers rave about this. It's normally an eye watering £17.50 but I got it for £14.88 with the discount.

Many of you will know that I can't be without a pack of Kleenex Shine Absorbing Sheets (full review here) in my handbag. I've heard these are being discontinued and I'll be gutted if they are! At the moment they're on offer at Superdrug for 99p per pack (50 sheets) from £2.99 and it's free delivery until Valentine's Day, so I bought four packs!! These will last me for a good five or six months now. Get ordering ladies!


Plus a haul isn't complete without some products from Boots! I got the brilliant Seventeen Doll'd Up mascara on offer for £5.29 (full review here), Revlon Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie £7.99 (see it on my recent FOTD here) and the Barry M All in One Top Coat, Base Coat and Hardener £2.99. I've been having problems with my nail varnish peeling off and my base coat was quite old, so I'm hoping this was why! 

Lastly, after my visit to L'Occitane at the weekend I had just enough time for a wander around Primark. Not a lot caught my eye, apart from the black skater skirt. It's pretty simple, but it's a staple item that I've been missing from my wardrobe desperately as it will go with so much and could be dressed up or down. Plus it was a bargain £8.00! 

I hope you enjoyed my little haul, please let me know what are your most recent purchases?

    1. Fingers crossed the rumour isn't true! I wonder if they are just too expensive at full price? xx

  5. Almond shower oil from l'occitane is so good... Use a tiny bit when you shave your legs instead of foam and it stops any irritation and makes your legs smooth and lovely! X
