I went shopping today and I've bought a few things I'm eager to test out/use.
The first and main thing was the Age Defence Cleansing Balm by No7.
If you look back to the post where I reviewed this against the Clinique cleanser you'll know I absolutely adored this! The full sized version cost me £8.50 for 200ml. I would have normally chosen a cheaper product, but recently my eyes (as you know) have been weeping a lot and I've decided to look after them a bit more. I was going to buy the Soap and Glory eye cream as I was recommended it by one of you lovely readers, but due to this being, for me, quite expensive I gave it a miss. It's still on my list of things to try out though!
The next things I picked up in Boots were:
Two 17 Lasting Fix Nail Polishes in Mint Choc Chip and Smoke Signal. I've put some of this on each hand and I have to say I'm mighty impressed. Two coats and a minute later I'm done. That's how nail polish should be!
Next up a few products from the Botanics range. For me Botanics are amazing, I've loved pretty much every product I've used and I would repurchase again and again. These are some new products I haven't tried yet though:
I find that my hair fades quite quickly (over about 2 or 3 weeks) and I'd obviously like to try and keep the brightness for as long as possible. When I was looking for some bog standard shampoo and conditioner I came across these, which use henna (same as I do to actually dye my hair) and I thought I'd give them a bash and see if they make a difference.
I've seen a few blog posts and videos on youtube saying that heat protection is a must and tbh yes it is. However, I used to have a heat protecting spray and it A) made my hair feel very greasy and B)made my straighteners very dirty so I didn't like it and haven't bothered trying to get another. This was a few pennies short of £4 and I hope it's nothing like the one I've used before!
I've been tempted to buy a hair mask for a while now, especially in Lush, however seeing as I'd bought the henna shampoo and conditioner I thought lets give it a whirl so I bought it and I hope it makes my hair soft again.
Have any of you lovely ladies tried any of these products? I know a few of you have the green polish (it looked so good I had to get myself some!), but if any of you have any tips or tricks on how to use/apply hair masks I would really appreciate it!
ta'ra for now x
