Beauty Haul and Repurchasing

I've been harping on about spending bans and de-cluttering and here I am with a haul but I have my excuses ready…

L'Oreal Age Perfect Refreshing Toner link
My beloved Liz Earle Skin Tonic had reached it's end and I was too lazy to walk to my nearest Boots that stocks it. Instead I picked up L'Oreal's Age Perfect Refreshening Toner to keep me going until Liz and I could be reunited.
It pains me to say that the Age Perfect Smoothing Toner has been designed for mature skin and it wasn't why I chose this but I guess it can't hurt? I was more drawn to the anti-fatigue properties (Vitamin C hello) as I'm not known for the best sleeping habits and anything that can help with waking me up in the morning I'm all for. If you're interested in this product give it a sniff first as I like the somewhere between fruity and masculine and I'm sure there are some that will be offended by it.

VO5 Plump It Up Amplifying Blow Dry Lotion link
I said in May's Empties post here that I was thinking fondly of VO5 Amplifying Blow Dry Lotion so we knew it wouldn't be long until it made it's way back in my life. I use this blow dry lotion daily and find that it doesn't weigh my hair down and helps give me the lift I like from my hair whilst protecting it from heat damage.

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo[+] link
Another repurchase that I have reviewed fully here. I've managed to cut my use of this wonder product to once a day but it's not one I feel I can do without in my routine. Another couple of months on and I'm still remaining blemish free and I put it all down to this little tube.

Barry M Cor Balmy Tinted Lip Balm link
Following my skin analysis from MyChelle and another similar skin assessment at a La Roche Posay event last month it was commented on how hydrated my lips were due to regular use of lip balms so I had to give the latest release from Barry M a try. Wow these pack a punch. I chose Jam Jar as we all know I like a red lip and I thought this would be handy on my desk at work as an easier reapplication of colour when I haven't got time that the lipstick would require. I think I'm going to like this creamy little beauty.

Peppermint Reviving Foot Soak link
I have picked up this product on numerous occasions then decided it was an unnecessary purchase but following a recent problem with one of my toes and the subsequent pressure it's putting on my feet I decided to treat myself to this foot soak to enjoy after a day pounding the pavement. I've yet to try it out so stay tuned for a review

So there you have my recent purchases, nothing to extravagant to speak of and all very necessary don't you agree. What have you treated yourself to lately?

  1. I love the sound of the Cor Balmy balms, and the Peppermint Foot Soak sounds like it'd feel gorgeous after a long day on your feet <3

    Jess xo

    1. I think it's just what I'll need when I get home from work this evening x

  2. Oooh, I'm going to try the VO5 - thanks! And have a great weekend!

  3. Just discovered the VO5 myself and I'm obsessed! I have super fine hair and I find it's the only plumping product that doesn't really weigh my hair down. I'm going to have to give the Barry M Jam Jar a try myself as I love red lips too :)

    I did my own little review of some VO5 products on my blog if you're interested!
