I happened to get a spare hour to myself after work so I decided to go shopping and get a few new things to try out from Boots. Some I had been recommended, others I read good things about.
The first thing I grabbed was the Dove Summer revived moisturiser come self tanner. This I had seen a few Beauty girls rave about and a couple of Youtubers also. I am rubbish at applying self tan, I either end up looking like a cheesy wotsit or with god awful streaks. This seemed idiot proof, apply as a normal moisturiser and then wait for Tan to apply, how hard is that? Results.. Well so far so good. I will say some girls have mentioned you don’t get the tell tale biscuit smell that you get with regular tanners, I still did and so it’s not perfect, but I will say it did not last too long and I was left with a lovely glow. Marks out of Ten?? I would say 8.
The Elvive high shine shampoo I had spotted before. I love the hot pink bottle, it looks so cute, but as the inside has to be as good I tried it the night I got it and well I have to say it left my hair soft and smelling good and very clean but high shine, I’m not that blown away, I was expecting full on glossy hair. My hair was shiny but no more so than with other shampoo.
My friend at work Kathy and I had discussed that day about the Rimmel volume colourist mascara. This is the one that is supposed to tint your lashes over time, as I have only just started using this I can’t say if that wild claim is true, I will say though that I do love its application and it is very black and glossy which I like. Time will tell but as a general mascara I do like it.
Last up I wanted to try the collection gel polish in ‘Think Pink’. This is a beautiful Barbie pink colour and I love it. It goes on so well and two coats leaves the nails looking good.The shine is lovely and so far three days no chips. If this is as good as I think then I will be getting more colours. I do think that the Gel polish effect is so much nicer than a regular polish.
That’s it for my mini Haul, let me know what you have been trying out…
