Haul time again!
With warmer weather on the horizon I couldn't resist a few summer inspired purchases and as I'm pleased with all of them I thought I'd share. Hope you enjoy this post - I always like reading haul posts myself!
Victoria's Secret Love Spell Body Mist
£8.79 - Amazon here
Come summer a new body mist to add to my collection is always going to happen. I decided after having a smell of the VS ones in Tesco (yes, some stores now sell the range but at £15) it would be 'Love Spell'. This is certainly not a scent for everyone as dare I say it... it does have a rotten fruit smell to it?! But that mellows and the scent takes me back to the days when The Body Shop sold 'Fuzzy Peach', anyone remember that? If you aren't THAT old or just didn't try the cult perfume oil at the time, it's almost a fermented peach scent that isn't as light as you would expect from a peach body mist, though the cherry blossom does lift it. I've also been impressed with how long this specific scent lasts! Not one to buy without smelling but a scent I will be loving this summer.
Shay & Blue Salt Caramel Natural Spray Fragrance
£30.00 (30ml) - John Lewis here
So I gave in after writing my latest wish list and decided to treat myself! Now before buying this I hadn't actually smelt the fragrance however from reviews and the fact it's a salted caramel scent I was 99% sure I'd like it. And thankfully I do! I'm also in love with the packaging. The scent is a little more on the popcorn side than I imagined it to be and I'd have liked a little more saltiness but on the whole this is such a gorgeous scent. As this is a natural spray it doesn't have the best sillage so for that reason I think it should be priced a little lower but other than that this is truly a wonderful fragrance that makes you smell amazing! If you love yummy scents this is certainly one to try out.
Ole Henriksen The Clean Truth Cleansing Cloths x30
£12.00 - Feel Unique here
On to Feel Unique buys now with a repurchase of my favourite face wipes that are most definitely a treat! I mean at £12 for 30 wipes these aren't purchased often but in summer I just can't resist. The reason why I'm such a fan of these wipes is that I feel they do brighten my skin ever so slightly, they most definitely don't give me spots and they smell incredible. Really it's just the scent of them and how energising they are if I'm honest, think sugary orange jelly babies! Seriously these smell like they contain sugar! Totally perfect for the summer months when you want to refresh the skin and for taking on holiday with you (they do a pack of 10 for £6.00). Love, love, love!
Eucerin Mattifying Sun Fluid SPF 50+ 50ml
£12.00 - Feel Unique here
This was a wish list purchase on recommendation of Katie from Katie's Beauty Blog and something I knew I'd eventually pick up, so whilst it was on sale on the Feel Unique website I snapped it up. On trying this out I'm so pleased I did as this truly is a mattifying fluid SPF that's ideal for anyone with an oily complexion. The light fluid literally sinks into the skin and feels like a powder whilst you are applying it - it's that quick! Perfect for applying before makeup on sunny days. This is also another thing I will be taking on holiday with me in a few months. Amazing stuff!
Topshop '5 Years of Beauty' Innocent Lipstick
£8.00 - Feel Unique here
Lastly I couldn't resist adding this stunning lipstick to my basket in order to get the 2 free samples that Feel Unique offer on orders over £30. Well, that was my excuse anyway! I feel Topshop totally know how to draw customers in and this new rose gold packaging certain does just that, plus this pinky hue was calling my name. The formula of this is creamy and gives a lovely semi-matt finish which I like and really is worth the £8 price tag. Innocent is also the perfect shade for summer if you like pink lipsticks like I do. Nothing else caught my eye from the '5 Years of Beauty' collection but this will be a cherished item in my makeup bag.
