Your mum still buys your..moisturiser?!

A good few weeks ago, I bought my mum three Chanel lippies.  My dad thinks it's wrong for me to spend this much money on her so he made her come shopping with me so she could buy me whatever I wanted.

This is what I got..
I've never seen ANY of these items in Boots before, I had a list of moisturisers I wanted to try, the main one was the vanishing cream which I didn't get as the lady behind the counter told me it wasn't in the offer.  I bought the moisturiser in the middle because it smelled pretty nice, I was going to get the Botanics oil free moisturiser but it smelled of rotting veg.  The eye cream was a last minute addition which I wasn't going to buy but as I could find nothing else I liked, I got it as Boots had their 3 for 2 on.  I swatched it in the shop and it had no glitter (yay!)  My mum was the one who found the glycerin and rosewater toner, I did see it but she was the one who suggested getting it.

I got a Dove heat protection spray but forgot to photograph it.

I picked up these two from The Body Shop:

This is a facial massager which I had wanted for some cost me £6.00/£7.00.
This looks like my facial brush and it just that but a bigger version for your body.  They had quite a few in the store but the lady working there said that this was best for using in the shower.  It cost £5.00. 
I know it looks like I didn't buy that much but I did get a fair amount of clothes which proved too hard to photograph because I was dead on my feet and just shoved them into a cupboard.

If you want reviews of anything, let me know! I know I'm going to review two items already but I'll keep them a secret for now!


  1. I've tried the gylecrin & rosewater..I quite liked it. I don't know why I didn't repurchas eit, it was quite a few years ago that I used it. I want that facial massage thingy! *adds to basket*

  2. ahhhhhh u should've got the botanics moisturiser, its so good! im going to review it, then u will be kicking yourself =P x

  3. Hi Rhamnousia, I've got the Vanishing Cream in my blog sale. I only used it once. Tell me if you're interested :)
    Love the packaging of the toner, so vintage and pretty!
    The facial massager looks lke a medieval instrument of torture! :P Looking forward to hearing how it works though :)

  4. Glycerine & Rosewater has done wonders for my skin - great purchase!

  5. Ooooh I'd like a review of the Glycerin and Rosewater toner, I've never seen anything like it here

  6. Yea I would love to know how the Glycerin and Rosewater tone is like :D

  7. Yinka: I've never ever seen it in Boots before, it was where they used to have their old range of moisturisers. I'm saying nothing about the rooler thing apart from this..there will be a review of it on here very soon!

    Nooberella: I tried it on my hand twice and the smell was DISGUSTING so I left it, it might be a miracle worker but the smell is too bad.

    Lillian: Hey, thanks. My mum picked it up in her local Boots as a 3 for 2 which is odd..

    Belle010110: I have used it a bit but my opinion has changed as another product was making it a bit funny.

    SilhouetteScreams: I've never seen Glycerin and Rosewater sold like that before, I used to use pure rosewater when I was younger but then I just stopped.

    Get Gawjus: It's one of the items I'm going to review so watch out for it


  8. looking forward to the rosewater and glycerin review x
