A Guide on How to Spend your Free No7 £5 Voucher

As most of you will know the free £5 No7 and Ruby & Millie vouchers are back! All you have to do is spend £5 or more in any Boots Store until 30th January 2011. 
However from past experience it is more than annoying when you are left with the vouchers after the cut off period, because you couldn't decide what products 
to use them on! 

So here are afew (okay, alot) of N07 tried & tested products I love - 
Shimmering Lip & Eye Screen SPF 30

No7 Skincare

 I can't really say I've tried alot of the skincare range as I do like more organic brands and afew of there toners/moisturisers have smelt abit too 'strong' for my liking in the past. 

Though I do love the No7 Radiance Boosting Hot Cloth Cleanser 200ml £9.00/£4.00 with voucher and with 50 five star reviews on the Boots website it seems I am not alone! Just a beautiful creamy cleanser that comes with a muslin cloth to remove the cleanser and exfoliate, leaving the skin soft and very clean. Suitable for all skintypes even quite sensitive skin.

  I also highly rate there Sun Protection range - maybe a little early but definitely worth stocking up for summer and getting a bargain.  
There a two products that really stand out for me the No7 Sun Protection Spray SPF 30 200ml £12.50/£7.50 with voucher, a non-greasy waterproof sun cream in a spray bottle which makes for a very easy application. 

The No7 Shimmering Lip & Eye Screen SPF 30 £7.00/ £2 with voucher is another great product that shouldn't be overlooked. This comes in the same packaging as the concealer stick (which can be annoying if you own both products) and applies much like a clear lipbalm with a slight shimmer to either the eyelids or the lips. Really great for holidays when you don't want to wear makeup or for day to day use on the lips in summer. Again the product is waterproof so perfect for swimming!

Bottom upwards - Essential Lip Brush, Smokey Eyeliner Brush, Eye Colour Brush, Precision Eyeliner Brush and Blend & Contour Brush.

No7 Makeup Brushes & Applicators 

 No7 brushes have to be my most loved/used products out of the whole range - all perfect quality and amazingly priced with the added benefit of a free £5 voucher. 
All brushes mentioned cost £6.64 (£1.64 with free voucher).

N07 Essential Lip Brush  -  Maybe slightly over priced normally but with the £5 voucher this is more than a bargain for a good quality, precision lipstick brush. The square topped brush really does make lipstick application a breeze when going for a bolder or darker lip colour.

No7 Smokey Eyeliner Brush - This works amazingly well for smudging out either pencil liner or eyeshadow near the lash line or under the eye. Really soft on the under eye area yet firm enough to really work out pencil eyeliner. A must for anyone that loves a smokey eye.  Not a brush to be under estimated!

No7 Eye Colour Brush - I'm not overly in love with this brush but it definitely does what it says, which is to place colour onto the lid, wet or dry. I find the brush does work best when used wet though and really brings out the pigment of any eyeshadow.  A nice staple brush if you haven't already got something similar. 

No7 Precision Eyeliner Brush - Such a versatile brush that can create a fine precise line or a smudged out smokey line. However as it's so precise I actually use it for applying concealer to small blemishes which works perfectly. 

No7 Eyeshadow Blend and Contour Brush - One of my favourite brushes out of all the ones I own, this just blends eyeshadows seamlessly and gives depth to the eye. A must for everyone! 
Damp enlarged Flawless Finish Sponges
 No7 Flawless Finish Sponges (Contains two sponges) £3.57/Free with voucher - If you really don't want to spend any money on the No7 products just because you have the free vouchers, then this is for you! These double in size when damp and blend out foundation either to create a more sheer finish or to even out the foundation for a more flawless look. A great product to finish off your foundation routine with. 

The No7 Cleansing/Exfoliating Sponges  both £3.57 (again free with the £5 vouchers) are also worth trying out - great for using with cleanser/face wash or removing messy face masks. 

Mineral Loose Powder Blusher in Soft Damson

No7 Makeup Products 

There really are too many good products to mention without making this post even longer than it already is, so I'm going to try and give a run down of the products I use the most.

Firstly there are some beautiful shades in the No7 Stay Perfect Eye Shadow range £8.00 /£3 with free voucher, all perfectly soft and very blendable. Recommended shades - Truffle, Wheatsheaf and Antique Rose.

As for other eye products the No7 Exceptional Definition Mascara £12.50/£7.50 with free voucher, is a must if you are looking for a good quality day mascara that gives a really natural yet lengthened look to the lashes...one of my favourite mascaras of 2010. 
I also highly recommend N07 Amazing Eyes Pencil in Brown £7.75/£2.25 with voucher, if you a looking for a soft brown pencil for under the eyes or even to fill in light brows. 
The No7 Stay Perfect Eye Mousses £9.00/£4 with free voucher, are also amazing and so pigmented. Perfect for any age (but not so great if you have oily eyelids). Recommended shades - Vanilla, Fudge and Plum. 

As for face products the No7 Quick Cover Blemish Stick £8.00/£3.00 with voucher gives great coverage to blemishes and really does last all day (can be slightly powdery/cakey looking on dry skin though). Another product I always seem to come back to is the No7 Mineral Loose Powder Blusher in Soft Damson (comes with mini Kabuki brush) £9.00/£4 with voucher, just so natural and perfect for this time of year. 

There are ofcourse alot of products I haven't liked in the N07 range which I plan to do a further post on.

Feel free to ask any questions on the products mentioned of course!  



  1. I always buy their eye make up remover with these vouchers (going at the weekend to do it!) so I'd recommend that :-)

  2. Ive got a vouchr lurking in my purse so think I'll def use your post to get some things! xx

  3. Ive already bright two no7 nail polishes with my vouchers they should cost 7 pound but u only pay 2 with the vouchers :-)

    I have searched one already if anyone is interested

  4. I've got myself a few of the brushes so far! 1 eye colour, 2 blending and 1 smoky liner!

    I love them all so far. They eye colour brush is great for really packing colour onto the lid and the blending brushes are superb! Only got the smoky liner brush yesterday, but playing with liners on the back of my hand sure has been fun!

  5. Brilliant post Fee, thank you! I never know what to spend my vouchers on so this is really helpful! xxx

  6. Thanks! Great post! I wanted to get a foundation, but I dont know, maybe its not sensible!

  7. I discovered that the voucher doesn't apply to gift sets :(

  8. I've usually just used the vouchers to buy brushes (bought those eyeshadow ones, and am planning on getting a concealer brush) but I'm tempted to try the sponges and the mascara! Does the mascara only offer length and not volume?

  9. Ooh, I've got four of these in my purse, thanks for reminding me about the offer! I think I'll use mine for some new brushes :)


  10. Thanks for this, I didn't realise their brushes were good quality, I've never paid any attention to them. :P Next time I get a voucher I'll definitely be picking up a brush.

  11. After reading this post I popped to my local boots as I have a couple of vouchers,and bought the hot cloth cleanser. I have been looking for a new cleanser as my skin is terrible at the moment! I hope it works. Thank you for the help :)

  12. now i want to try them all and they don't even sell no7 in canada! actually, that's a lie. they sell them in a local drugstore but the selection's not that great =/. regardless, i'll keep an eye out for some of these :).

  13. thank you so much for this post hun! Normally always end up buying a nail polish with the voucher! I love the look of the eye/lip screen & the blending brush. On to my list they go!

    Aysh xoxo


  14. Great post Fee! I am going to HAVE to go to Boots now tomorrow and spend some dosh. Mr needs a toiletries bag, so there's my fiver spent to get my voucher! I might try the sponges and the hot cloth cleanser! xx

  15. ...AND it's 3 for 2 on No7 - I stocked up on serum:
    normally £21 each (so £63 for 3), 3 for 2 makes it £42, minus £5 voucher = £37 (less than £12.50 each! Funny how I get good at maths when there's a bargain to be had. :)x

  16. What a great post Fee, I always end up with Nail varnish as the layout in our store is a bit rubbish and I never thought about the brushes!! I have another one in my purse though so guess what I am buying this time :)xx

  17. I may go for the blemish stick, great review and it has helped me thanks Fee x
