More Boots 3 for 2 Purchases

The other day I saw on Twitter that some people were getting Dr Jart+ BB Cream in their October GlossyBox. This made me resubscribe immediately as I've been wanting to try some of their BB cream ever since I swatched it in Boots and saw that it seemed great quality and might be light enough for my pale skin!

I still haven't received my GlossyBox but I logged into my account to see which products I'm going to receive and the Dr Jart+ BB Cream isn't on the list. I was pretty disappointed but I'm still looking forward to trying the products I am getting.

When I found out I wasn't getting the Dr Jart+ BB Cream, I took to Twitter to express my disappointment and got into conversation with the people running the Dr Jart+ Twitter account who informed me that Dr Jart+ is included in the current 3 for 2 offer on skincare at Boots. I'm glad they mentioned this as I wasn't aware Dr Jart+ was included but my bank account is looking worse by the day! So much for no more shopping this month! 

I'd actually been interested in the skincare as well as the BB Cream so this was the perfect opportunity to try those products I've been lusting after. 

So lets see what I bought...

There are 4 types of BB Cream ranging from £18.00 to £24.00. I went for the Platinum version which costs £22.00 and seemed like the lightest shade. It's also got SPF 30 which is a massive bonus since I want to keep my super fair skin protected. 

Recently I've been toying with the idea of buying Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask after reading rave reviews but I decided to go for this Water-Max Sleeping Mask instead. It seems like the same sort of idea and I liked the sound of it when I read the packaging. This mask is free from GMO, Mineral Oil, Talc and Pigments. It's also suitable for all skin types. My skin tends to be quite dehydrated and I can imagine it getting quite dry as the weather gets colder so I think this will be a great treat to use a few times a week.

My third product is the Water-Sure Gel which also seems ideal for hydrating my skin. Again this is also free from the 4 nasties mentioned above and it's a refreshing oil-free gel moisturiser. I love the little spatula you get for this so you don't need to dip your fingers in the pot every time you use it. It's so much more hygienic! At £26.00 for 50ml this is cheaper than the moisturisers I generally buy so I'm interested to see how this compares.

Once I've had a chance to try these products out I'll post some reviews on my blog so watch out for those :)

If you like Dr Jart+ or are interested in trying their products you should follow them on Twitter as they seem really helpful.
