Well, whad'ya know? I've been shopping again. Not only have I bought a few things in my old favourite Boots but The Body Shop and Marks & Spenser was also on my hit list. I got a nice mix between skincare, makeup and one kind of random item. So let's jump in a talk about these juicy buys.

I guess I'll chat about what I got at Boots first. You may notice that I couldn't help buy pick up the La Roche-Posay Seronzinc Spray  - €11. This just arrived on Irish shores a couple of months ago and I've seen a lot of bloggers boasting about how great it is. And being a sheep, I had to pick it up too! So far I've only sprayed it on a couple of times but I'm definitely going to give this a good test and get back to you about whether it's worth the praise. 

Funnily enough, the reason why I actually set foot in Boots was to buy a new setting powder. I read Makeup Monster's review of the Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot - €15 and she liked it so I decided to try it and hopefully it does the trick. Of course, Boots then had a 2 for 1 sale so I picked up It's About Prime Eyeshadow Underbase - €10. I haven't heard much about this. To be honest I only choose it because the display in Boots was a bit of a mess and it was one of the few items intact. But hey, it might be a hidden gem. 

I also picked up this No. 7 Stay Perfect Shade and Define - €10.50 as I've heard this is reminiscent of the Kiko shadow sticks, which I adore. I got the shade Glistering Ray, a shimmery gold and I hope these measure up as they are a lot easier to get a hold of compared to the Kiko counterpart. Finally from Boots is a hair mask called Umberto Giannini Beauty Secrets Moisture Mask - €5.33. Once again, I've never heard anything about this mask and I haven't even tried anything from this brand. I got it as it was on special offer. However, if it's anything special, I'll report back. 

Can we just take a second to talk about how great the beauty hall in M&S is? I'm always surprised by how little it's talked about. It's my go to place to buy Ren products. And this time I got the Ren Keep Young and Beautiful Firm and Lift Eye Cream. I've been loving this brand recently so it seemed like a natural step to try their eye cream. This is also my first foray into anti-aging eyecreams (tear) so I'm curious to know what effect it has on my skin.

In The Body Shop, I picked up an old favourite, the Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil. This is my third tube and I love this stuff. Removes makeup, feel lovely and doesn't irritate or strip the skin. Love it! Next is the Vitamin E Sink In Moisture Mask. I wanted a hydrating mask that wasn't too expensive but still worked. I do like the Vitamin E range overall, so hopefully this one is another great buy. My final and most random buy is the Aloe and Soft Linen Room Spray. I was really drawn in by the fresh, summery scent. And I think it will just be a nice alternative to a candle when a room needs a quick perk up.

Have you tried any of these products? Let me know how you got on!
