Shopping Haul #1

So a couple of days ago when I was in town, I decided to treat myself, after having a barrage of medical checkups. I went to Lush, Sportsgirl and The Body Shop.

Some of the items were on sale, so you may not be able to find them at that price anymore, but I'll mention that when I list the price! I've been using most of the products since then and am pretty happy with my purchases!

So naturally I headed into my favourite store, The Body Shop! From here I got the Tea Tree Skin Clearing Lotion ($11.95), Tea Tress Blemish Fade Night Lotion ($19.95), Travel Size Argan Oil Shower Gel ($3.95), Coconut Hand Cream ($6.95) and Peppermint Foot Fizzles ($2.95). The Tea Tree products are working miracles on my skin, and its looking so much better already! 

These items I got on sale from Sportsgirl. They were all heavily discounted at 50% off the sale price so I was happy to pick them up! These beauty products are from their own line, and I've had success with their beauty products in the past. I got the Nail It Moondust Nail Polish ($2.47), Colour It Hair Chalk ($2.47) and Eye Sparkle Glitter ($2.47). I love glitter and the nail polish is great! The hair chalk also has been a pretty cool, and safe addition to my boring blond/brown hair colour!

The last shop on my shopping haul was to Lush, my first time making a purchase. I really wanted to get one of their amazing looking bath bombs, but sadly I don't have a bath. I also discovered they had a makeup range so I'll have to investigate in the future. I got the Ultrabalm ($9.95), Grease Lightning Spot Treatment ($13.95), Yellow Fun ($9.50), Aquatic Toothy Tabs ($2.95) and Breath of God Toothy Tabs ($2.95).  Toothy Tabs ($2.95). The Ultrabalm is working wonders on my dry heels, the spot treatment is saving my face and the yellow fun has been a great replacement for body wash.

The only purchase I was disappointed with were the Toothy Tabs, they were horrible, and I felt pretty sick after using them. The smell and taste was overpowering and after trying one, I'm not going to use or buy them again. I wouldn't recommend these to anyone.

Overall apart from the Toothy Tabs from Lush I'm super happy with my shopping haul!

Have you had a beauty shopping haul lately?

Love Katie xoxo

    This all looks like good stuff. I wish I could use Lush products. They smell so good, but I'm allergic to something in them :(

    I wish I could go on a shopping haul, lol. I love trying new beauty products!

  4. I tried those toothy tabs too! They are weird but I didn't hate them as much as you did!! I love Lush but I recently bought products from there with SLS in them and I felt really disappointed. I guess their image is all clean and green so I figured they would leave out the bad stuff! It looks like you had a lot of fun shopping!!

  5. The only shopping I've been doing lately is for clothes for my wee one. She's growing like a week and is now officially out of 6 month size.

  6. I love the body shop, I love their tea tree blemish stick can not live without it and always have to buy the Vanilla body spray.

  7. Can you describe the products more? I have no idea what the toothy tabs are supposed to do. What is yellow fun? Looks like you got a good haul!

  8. Sure thing, toothy tabs are small and pill sized and are supposed to be a natural replacement for toothpaste. Just chew one, and start brushing! Yellow fun can be used to wash hair, body and even remove stains, pretty much a multipurpose product! Yep lots of fun!

  9. Ah haven't tried the tea tree blemish stick yet, next on my list!

  10. I was not an expert of Body shop or Lush until my Teen daughter bought some and wow, I am addicted to the products
