Boots 3-for-2 Haul

I always have time to kill on Wednesdays and Thursdays after university, and am constantly tempted to pop into Boots (and Topshop) on the way to the bus stop. Yesterday I pretty much gave in, seeing as I was in desperate need of some heat styling spray as it was, and I must say I came away with some goodies!

I've not tried any kind of dry shampoo before, but now that I work out every day I feel that my hair will need a quick solution to get it less icky if I have to leave the house in a rush. Boots had shedloads of Batiste Dry Shampoo on sale - such cute cans, especially the leopard print one - but I settled on Cherry, simply because it smelt so good! I think I may do a separate post in the future of how well it worked for me, so stay tuned for that one!

Secondly, I couldn't resist buying some more Real Techniques brushes. They are simply brilliant and super affordable in my honest opinion - just look at the price of MAC brushes, yeesh. Today I bought the powder brush (for applying powders and mineral foundations), and the expert face brush (for applying and blending cream blushes and liquid foundations). I must have almost purchased them all now, everything but the setting brush, I think!

Now this is what I went into Boots for - L'Oréal Elnett Satin heat styling spray. I've heard great things about this collection of styling sprays and I hope it lives up to the hype. I bought the volume version, because my hair needs a bit of a lift, but they also sold straightening and wave versions too. I'll probably do a separate post on this product too, just because I want to give it a bit of a try out period before I come to a full conclusion!

I've not heard of Nip + Fab before, I don't know if I'm just completely oblivious to things around me or whatever, but I couldn't resist picking up their Pistachio Sundae body butter. Oh man, this stuff smells amazing! It's a dry skin fix, which I would use on my joints (knees, ankles and elbows) to moisturise that gross chicken skin we all get. I bought the 50ml pot but you can also get a bigger version which is 200ml. I have to say I will definitely be purchasing this again, just for the smell alone!

Finally, I bought an Essie nail polish in the colour Licorice. I'm loving the matte nail trend at the moment and I've run out of my OPI black nail polish to use as a base so this, I'm sure, will be a fine replacement.

I'm chuffed that I managed to save £10.94 from my total balance. A good day for killing time!

Have you tried any of these products before? I'd love to know what you think about the idea of dry shampoo especially!


  1. I love the Powder brush! I got it free with my points & so glad :) x

    1. I have to say that I used both of my new brushes this morning and they may be my favourites of the whole lot! X
