Hi ladies! As you may (or may not) have noticed, I've been pretty absent this week!
Last Thursday was my 21st Birthday and after a day at the zoo I had a wonderful meal with my huge family, where they surprised me with a mini family holiday!
As a kid I loved caravan holidays so my family whisked me away for an amazing weekend.
However, home time and Monday morning rolled around and I woke up with an unbearable stomach pains!
After a trip to a&e where I was wrongly told I was pregnant (:o) I was still no better so went to the doctors where I was diagnosed with a stomach and small intestine condition (which I forget the name of!).
I've been bed bound since Monday (therefore unable to go and sit my first year exams at uni!) and today I just had to get out!
Good thing I was able to because the illness has sent my skin awol! (more on that in my next post!)
Here is my pick-me up skin haul!
The majority of these products are from superdrug.
These little sachets of L'oreal youth code moisturiser were free from boots! I picked these up for my mum as she loves loves loves freebies just as much as trying new creams.
This is something else I picked up for my mum. It cost me a grand total of 9p! Its a line eraser anti-wrinkle cream from superdrug's Optimum range. (It was 10p but I get 10% student discount.)
Nivea daily essential Night cream - £4.35
Biore' Combination skin Balancing cleanser - £4.99
Oilatum - £7.88 (Boots)
Superdrug Cooling cucumber face mask - 99p
Superdrug Simply pure aqua hydrating eye gel - £4.59
Superdruf Optimum Super antioxidant grape day cream - £6.49
Superdrug Simply pure Aqua hydrating serum - £4.59
I also bought some anti bacterial hand gel and my usual Charles Worthington mineral hair spa Hair treatment.
Next stop - Lush!
Butterball - £2.40
The comforter - £4.15
Teat tree toning tabs - 80p each
Hair Doctor - £6.50
Space Girl - £1.95
I also picked up Rhianna's scent Rebelle for £30 in boots!
I love the smell of this, but what I don't love so much is the amount of packaging!
I just don't understand why some products need to have so much packaging!
I thought we were meant to be preserving the earth and going green?
Not only did this perfume have an outer sleeve, but it had a selophane wrapper, a box and a cardboard sleeve inside.
I try to be as eco-friendly where ever possible and I probably wont be buying this perfume again even though I love the smell!
Do you use any of these products or do you have any products to suggest?
