Summer Essentials

I popped into town last week to pick up a few essentials using my Boots and Superdrug points; see, saving up your loyalty points really pays off when money is tight! I'm reaching the end of my current shampoo, so in Boots I grabbed another bottle of my favourite Naked Volume Bodybuilding Shampoo, along with a can of Batiste in the new fragrance Graffiti - just to try! I also popped into Superdrug for an exfoliator and some pore strips, and ended up picking up this Arora Pink Grapefruit Body Butter to try as well, since its ingredients list seemed pretty good and I'm trying to be extra careful not to irritate my eczema now I know what the triggers are.

I also placed a little order on Asos with the voucher I won in etailPR's Shopcade giveaway, coming away with Pop Beauty's Face Magnet Primer, as I'm still looking for my Holy Grail primer and this has had some good reviews. I also ordered a couple of skincare items; REN's Mayblossom T-Zone Control Cleansing Gel, and Korres's Sage & Salicylic Acid Regulating Cleansing Gel. You may be beginning to notice a pattern here, but I'm desperately searching for the product which will help to bring my oily skin under control! I'll be reviewing all three of these products once I've had a chance to try them properly.

  1. Ah this is a lovely post, I love seeing different products!

    I'm embarrassed to say I still haven't tried anything from Batiste :0 only because I'm not sure how it'll be on dark hair!

    Be careful with tea tree as sometimes it can make your skin oilier as it tends to strip the skin! :)

    1. I have dark hair and Batiste is fine as long as you don't spray too close and make sure to brush it out well! Thank you, I am careful with the tea tree, I only use it a couple of times a week :) xo

  9. I love the look of the Korres Cleansing Gel - I've used some of their other products (for Combination skin) and they really worked wonders for me! I've also used a sample of that Ren May Blossom Cleansing Gel and was very impressed. Your skin is going to love you :) xx
