Saturday Mini random Haul.

As I've recently only been wearing minimal makeup and sticking to my Dior makeup in my previous post, so I haven't really been buying much in the way of makeup.
I have though been having a slight addiction to Ponds Creams after I read somewhere that Kimberly Walsh from Girls Aloud loves Ponds.
So today I bought my third Ponds cream.

I'm wearing it on my skin tonight and it feels so nice.
I do have the Ponds Nourishing cream and the Light Day Cream and none of them cause my skin to have any spots or further blackheads. Just nice soft skin :)
And at £3.98 a jar they're really cheap, so I like experimenting by adding my favourite essential oils to them, usually I add Ylang-Tlang, Rose oil and Geranium.
I love essential oils as as well as smelling gorgeous on your skin, they also benefit it.

Since I bought YSL's Parisienne perfume last year I've had a slight addiction to anything that smells of Rose (the sweet pretty type of rose, not the granny type which I perceived all rose scents to be before trying parisienne).
So today in Boots I noticed that they had an offer on their Original Beauty Formula items, and since I already have the day and night cream, and also I have the Rose Toner and cuticle oil I decided I wanted the Cold Cream.
I tried this stuff tonight and it has the lovely Rose, geranium scent that the other products have and also the cream is a sort of light, airy, creamy formula. I wasn't expecting it to feel like that.
It also really cleaned my face and neck nicely, and I just love the scent. The only thing it didn't do was remove my Mac Studio Fix Lash Mascara and Bourjois eyeliner, so I removed that with my usual Avene Gentle cleanser.

I also bought Nairs New exfoliating Hair remover. I haven't tried this yet, however it claims to remove hair, exfoliate and moisturise and since summer is on its way, I want nice smooth legs :)

I do have a slight obsession for Candles and I always end up buying the big Yankee Candles and get sick/ bored of the smell after a few uses.
So I decided to be a sensible girl and buy two small ones :)

Anyway, that's my little haul for today and I'm really sorry about the lack of blogging lately.
Take care :) x


  1. Great haul! I don't think we have the same Ponds products in the U.S., too bad as that stuff looks nice and moisturizing. I looove Yankee Candles too but not the price lol. The small ones are good though as it lets you test scents before buying the big expensive one.

  2. Great haul! And the candless look amazing!
