Weekend Haul

Last weekend I decided to go shopping as I fancied a bit of a spending spree. I left Boots, John Lewis and Lush £90 lighter and here's what I bought...


Lush have their Christmas items in-store now and I wanted everything! I limited myself to three products though. I had to buy some Snow Fairy Shower Gel as it's the perfect sweet scent and I buy it every year. I noticed a new shower gel called Ponche which contains orange juice, plum, cinnamon and tequila! It's a very fresh and fruity, bright orange shower gel that I really like. It's quite different to what I would normally go for so I'm glad I tried it. 

I also bought a lip scrub in the flavour Popcorn. I've bought one before in "Bubblegum" and that one was so sweet like Snow Fairy which I loved but I've got a thing for salted caramel at the moment so Popcorn is a very welcome treat.


I picked up some Dove Intensive Repair Express Treatment as it was on offer for less than £2 and I was running low on conditioner. I like using a thick conditioner/hair mask so I like the idea of the express treatment as I hate waiting! The Bumble and Bumble Sunday shampoo has been on my wishlist for some time now (I blame Anna at Vivianna Does Makeup!) and I finally decided to pick it up. It's expensive at £15.50 but at least you can buy it at Boots now and pick up some Advantage Points! 


The Ojon Volume Advance range has also been on my wishlist so I picked up a travel size version of the shampoo and conditioner so I could try it out. There's actually a really good deal on the Boots website which I'm wishing I saw before I bought those mini bottles. If you spend £20 on Ojon you get a free full size Volume Advance Shampoo and Conditioner for free! I'm still tempted but I really shouldn't be spending any more money this month.

Another great deal at Boots is their mix and match 3 for 2 deal on make up and other beauty accessories which I blogged about the other day. As soon as I saw Essie nail polish was included I had to get some. I would have loved to buy Mint Candy Apple but there weren't any left so I went with two others that I have lusted over - Peach Daiquiri and Cute as a Button. 

I fancied a new mascara so I went for the L'oreal Volume Million Lashes Excess in Black. This features one of those spiky plastic brushes in the style of the Benefit Get Real mascara which I'd been thinking about buying so thought this might be a good, cheaper alternative.

John Lewis

I only made one purchase in John Lewis. I needed a new bottle of Cleanse and Polish so I headed straight for the Liz Earle counter. I saw a stand advertising the new version featuring rose and lavender in 150ml size with two muslin cloths for around £20. I really fancied buying this version and walked a bit further and saw a nice presentation box for £19.75 for the 150ml cleanse and polish with two muslin cloths which stated "Limited Edition" so I happily picked this up and bought it assuming it was the rose and lavender version. It was only when I got home I realised it was just the regular version and it was probably the 150ml size which made it Limited Edition. D'oh!

So that's the end of my haul and it's hopefully the last haul of the month! What have you been buying lately? Feel free to post any links to your blogs/YouTube videos :)

  4. Wow, amazing haul! I love Snow Fairy, I've managed to make my bottle from last Christmas last right up until now! I save it for special occasions because I'm so scared of it running out. Just bought Sunday Shampoo myself too :)
    If you take an old and empty bottle of shampoo to any Ojon stockist on the 6th november you can get a free full size bottle - just as a heads up seeing as there's some ojon products here :) x
