#2 My Weekend Haul

So I didn’t post last week and I have a very good explanation as to why! I had been at my parents all week as it was my birthday and I completely forgot to bring my laptop with me to post!!

But don’t worry, I used that time away from my blog to brain storm and jot down some new ideas!

So anyways, back to the post. After going out on the weekend (You can read the post here), I had a mini shopping haul at Superdrug and Tesco which I thought I would share with you all!

I’ll start with skincare first as that is pretty much the majority of my haul. I’m obsessed with skincare, even more so now I’m getting older! When I was younger (16/17) I don’t even think I moisturised! Whilst browsing Superdrug, I came across their Vitamin E range, which I honestly never even knew existed. So I decided I’d get some of the collection and came away with Their moisture boost serum, nourishing eye cream, hydrating mist, leave on moisture mask and the  night cream. I’m so excited it all! I’ve tested a few of the bits and can safely say I’m in love with the hydrating mist.


Next up I saw that Garnier had some new moisturisers that were 1/3 off. There was a choice between honey, rose water and aloe vera. I absolutely love aloe vera so I decided to give it a whirl. What persuaded me to buy it was the fact that 96% of the ingredients are of natural origin with the last 4% being for preservation. I have tried this a few times and love it.


I don’t usually buy nail polish but decided I’d make a change and start so I can practice doing my nails more. I asked my Fiance to pick a colour and he decided on this lovely coral colour from Barry M. It’s from their Coconut Infusion line and, oh my God, there were so many pretty colours! I also got a base coat/top coat as mine dried up a while ago.


The Last product I got from Superdrug was medical tape. Need I explain more? who doesn’t have tape in their make up kits? 😛


From Tesco I brought the Aloe Body Gel. I got badly sunburnt on my birthday and needed something to soothe the stinging, burning, itching and peeling and decided to give this a go as it said it moisturises calms and repairs. I  brought the one at first and took it home and I loved it so much I went out the next day to get a bottle. It is honestly the best body moisturiser I’ve ever used!!

So that’s it guys!! I hope you’ve enjoyed my mini haul!


MUA Pro-Base palette Review

Hi all!

I know this is my second post today but I have a lot of products I’d like to review.

The product that I will be reviewing today is the MUA Pro-Base palette. I’m not sure how I feel about this product, it cost me £3, which wasn’t much and I would say I got my money’s worth.

Within the first day of me having it the case began to fall apart. The plastic window cover fell out which I had to sellotape back on to prevent bits getting into the concealer.

I’m not quite sure what all the colours are for but I’ve been using the green for redness and the orange for my dark circles. The orange works really well, it covers well so I have no complaints about it. The green on the other hand wasn’t as good. It’s quite a liquidy consistency (to liquidy for concealer) and when apply it I find I have to build it up in order to see some coverage which uses up a lot of product as I have only used it a few times and am already seeing the silver under tray of the palette.

It’s not a terrible product, but I wouldn’t say it’s a good one either. I brought an unbranded concealer palette from Amazon for £2.50 which I definitely prefer.

I wouldn’t recommend this product but good try MUA! ❤

Much love,
