Fashion and Beauty Haul


I feel like I never get enough stuff together to do a haul, but recently I went a bit wild so now I have lots of things to share with you guys!

The Body Shop Early Harvest Raspberry Body Scrub - I've just had a look online and this doesn't seem to be in stock any more in the UK (I found a US link) - it seems like The Body Shop release and discontinue lines quite a lot, so I wouldn't be surprised if it came back one day. I like the scent and scrubbiness of this so far, but I find the packaging really inconvenient. A word on buying from The Body Shop - I wouldn't bother unless you get a good deal. These scrubs are usually £13, but with the sale and an online discount I got this for £3.90!

Witch Blemish Stick - I like to have something to use on spots if I get them and I've heard that this is pretty good, so I thought I'd give it a go as it definitely doesn't break the bank,

Dove Silk and Shine Conditioner - I think they're probably discontinuing this as I bought it in Poundland and not many places online seem to have it in stock - I think this will be my new place to buy shampoo and conditioner!

Garnier Express 2 in 1 Eye Make-up Remover - Although I love my Simple Eye Makeup Remover, I thought I'd give this a go as it sounded pretty good. I've used it once and although it removed makeup pretty easily, it didn't feel wet, which I tend to like (OK, just me).

Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet in Beau Brun - I basically really wanted to buy a lipstick that day, and I do slightly regret getting this one as it's a little on the pricey side and not a shade I love. Ah well, I will definitely still wear and enjoy it.

H&M Jersey Skirt in Dark Grey - I've wanted a skirt like this for a while and as I was feeling spendy I went for it! This feels quite good quality, so hopefully it will last me a while.

H&M Jersey Playsuit in Blue/Floral - Although online this hasn't been marked down, I got this in the sale for £5, so I'm pretty pleased with my purchase! I like that the pattern is a bit different - and also it's just so comfy! Plus it has POCKETS!

Fivepoundtee Celtic Stag Sweater - I've wanted a sweater for ages that I can just throw on when it's cold and I don't want to think about my outfit. I really like this, as it'll go with anything, it doesn't have any words on it, as I'm not really a fan of slogans on tops, but it's not boring. 

H&M Short Sleeved Top in Grey - A very exciting purchase by me! Not very much I can say about this, it's just a top that I can throw on with anything.

H&M Jersey Top (Not sure if the top linked is the right one as no colours match this) - I think this will be great for a casual look.

H&M Patterned Top (can't find this online at all, but there were lots of this and this style in store) - I absolutely love this top as it can be smart or casual and goes with pretty much everything. I also really love the shoulder details, but this does mean that you have to wear a strapless bra with this top.

Botanics Facial Oil - I've used this a few times so far, some with my night cream and some on its own and I think it's already helping my skin. It seems to have helped some red marks where I recently had spots fade. Even though I have broken out a bit since using it, they haven't been difficult spots at all, so I think it's just that my skin isn't used to a rich oil yet. 

Thanks for reading! What do you think of my purchases?

    1. I've used it once now and I'm not sure if it did anything or was just a coincidence, but it did seem to help :)

  2. I love that eye makeup remover, I've repurchased it so many times! Nice picks :)

    1. Thanks! Yes I think it will be a good one :) maybe with a colourful necklace or something

  4. I love a Body Shop sale and the Raspberry range smells soo good! Also, that playsuit looks so cute!

    1. Body Shop do so many sales, but loads are online so you don't see them! Definitely worth signing up to their mailing list I'd say. Thank you :)

  5. I have that same body butter and I love it! Also, I adore some of the tops and playsuits you picked out, they look amazing on you.
