I’ve bought quite a few new products over the past few months, and rather than doing a haul, I thought I’d let you know what I think about them so far!

1. SOAP AND GLORY RICH AND FOAMUS BODY WASH

31JPQPVeQRL._SY300_

– I’d been dying to get a Soap and Glory Body Wash, as they have some delicious sounding scents! I saw this as I was walking about of Boots, and I just couldn’t leave it on the shelf! It smells so good, and leaves me feeling really mellow!

2. JOHN FRIEDA SHEER BLONDE SHAMPOO

487751_l– I recently bleached the ends of my hair, and because my hair is naturally very dark, my hair turned a very brassy colour, which I wasn’t a very big fan of. I did some research into how I could neutralise the colour without doing any further damage to my hair, and I found this. Even after the first wash, I noticed a huge different, and I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks now!

3. REVLON LIP BUTTER IN PINK TRUFFLE

09-01-revlon-lip-butter-pink-truffle-4

– I’ve been wanting to buy a Revlon Lip Butter for a long time now, as they’ve been highly raved about, and I fell in love with this colour whilst swatching some different colours when I was out shopping a couple of weeks ago. It’s such a beautiful neutral colour, and I think it’d go nicely with any skin tone!

4. RIMMEL APOCALIPS IN APOCALYPTIC

Rimmel Apocalips Celestial Stellar Apocaliptic Big Bang Swatches

– I’ve been seeing these a lot lately, and after reading some reviews online, I decided to buy one. I was originally going to buy a fairly neutral colour, but when I saw this, I had to buy it!

5. BATISTE DRY SHAMPOO

batiste-dry-shampoo-dark-and-deep-brown-200ml

– I wash my hair every other day, because if I washed it everyday then I’d damage it, and sometimes there can be some excess oil in my hair. I tried the regular Batiste and that made my hair look grey, but, determined not to give up, I tried this. I really love it, and it works way better than I thought it would!

6. GUCCI PREMIERE PERFUME

nd.15449

– I smelt this perfume a long time ago and fell in love with it, so as I was in a perfume shop the other day I decided to buy some! It smells absolutely beautiful, and I think it really suits me!

7. SIMPLE FACIAL SCRUB

simple-kind-to-skin-smoothing-facial-scrub-75ml-

– My skin is very sensitive, so it’s really hard to find products that work and are suitable for sensitive skin. Even though my past with Simple hasn’t been great, I decided to try this, and I actually really love it! It cleans my skin really well, and leaves it feeling really soft!

8. LUSH TEA TREE TONER

404-Tea-Tree-Water-resized

I’ve recently become quite obsessed with Lush, and as I’ve never had a toner before, I decided to try this! It makes my skin feel really fresh, and it really helps when I have a few stray blemishes!

9. SLEEK BLUSH IN ROSE GOLD

sleek-blush-rose-gold-01

– I’ve wanted to buy a Sleek Blush for a long time now, and I fell in love with this colour when I saw it about a month ago, but I only started using it a couple of weeks ago. It’s a really pretty colour, and has warm undertones, which go really well with my skin tone.

10. COLLECTION 2000 LASTING PERFECTION CONCEALER IN FAIR

shades

– I bought some Collection 2000 concealer a while ago, and I didn’t really like it, but I realised that I’d picked up Light instead of Fair, and it was way too dark. Now I’ve got the right colour, I really love it, and will definitely be repurchasing it once I’ve finished it!
