I've had to pick up quite a few bits and pieces recently; you know when everything runs out at once and you make a mad dash for Superdrug to restock? Yeah, that. I was exceptionally well-restrained and didn't purchase any make-up or nail polish AT ALL - I hope you are all suitably impressed. So, here is what I did get.
Bodycare Superdrug Haul
My hairbrush has been dying a death for some time, with the little beads on the ends of the bristles pinging off, meaning it's getting quite sharp and causing a lot of pain. This Superdrug paddle brush was only £3.99 and should see me through until I have a bit more spare cash to invest in something a bit nicer - I can't find it online though. Batiste, a total staple for me, is currently on offer at 2 for £4 in Superdrug so I bought a couple of my favourite Tropical version, as you do.
I went for the cheapest nail polish remover available, which was 89p for this Superdrug's own brand Acetone version - I wanted an actual Acetone nail polish to see if it makes removing glitter polish any easier. Watch this space!
My Witch Blemish Stick has also run out and, seeing as it's an important part of my evening skincare routine, I picked up another, currently on offer for just £1.90 in Superdrug. My Garnier Simply Essentials Eye Make-up Remover ran out a while ago now and I've been scraping by without it, but decided enough was enough and purchased a new bottle for £2.99. I was also in need of a new, budget-friendly night cream, having finished my Origins one, so I picked up Nivea Visage Regenerating Night Cream for £3.99.
I found the T-Zone Clear Out Nose Pore Strips in Bodycare for £1.49 for 6 so picked up a pack to give them a whirl, as I've heard some good things about them. Finally, the Peach Deep Moisturising Foot Pack was from Poundland and I'm hoping it will deal with the horrible hard skin on my feet - I'll review this once I've used it!
What have you been buying lately? Are any of these products essentials for you? How long will you go without repurchasing something you class as an essential?

  1. Great choices! I use pure acetone for my nails, if I'm removing gel, regular or glitter polish. It works really well! I usually use the foil wrap method and it's a piece of cake! :)

  2. I've had that nivea moisturiser before and I think I really loved it, I'm almost done with my current night cream so I think I might go back to it!

  3. I usually get essential products before I run out, I'll need to go soon to do some shopping too :)

  4. Wow that is impressive not to have bought any make-up items x

  5. Your essential products are almost identical to mine (: the only thing I have not tried is the pore strips (:

  6. I have heard great things about Witch Hazel, now I need to try it

  7. love your little haul :) the dry shampoos are great

  8. The only one of these I've tried is the Witch Stick, which completely invaluable! I;m intrigued by the foot pack though! :)

  9. I found myself struggling with that night cream which is a shame as I like the glass jar :P
    I might make a superdrug online order as there are a few things I want and my nearest one is a good few miles away.

    I'm forever repurchasing Batiste!
