Sainsbury's, Superdrug & Boots- Bargains & Buys

I have something to admit to you.. I went rather crazy last week. You could even say insane. I visited Sainsbury's (hardcore!), Boots and Superdrug in two separate visits, which for some reason makes it sound better. It's all this GCSE nonsense, it's set my brain into shop-til-you-drop mode. I'll be reviewing some of the more adventurous products, but here's a little overview.

Jergens Naturals Skin Firming Moisturiser
I've used this on and off this week and love it. Someone recommended it on their blog so I had to pick it up (can't remember who). It does take a while to sink in, but keeps your skin moisturised all day long.. and I actually think it's firming up my legs a little. Only time will tell!

Gillette Satin Care Shaving Gel (Dry)
I haven't used this yet, as I wanted to use up my super old one first. I put some on my finger and then washed it off to test just how moisturising it was. It passed that test, so I'm gonna use it soon and report back.

Biore Pore Strips
I've used these once so far after seeing Christina recommend them on her blog, and I'm so glad I picked them up. These actually work and give a lot of satisfaction, money well spent.

Tamara Drewe
Isn't Gemma Arterton gorgeous? It's the main reasion I got this DVD (lame). I haven't watched it yet but will tweet when I do. It looks quite good, definitely my kinda film.

Maybelline 'ONE BY ONE' Mascara
I've tried this out and it gives the most fanned out, long lashes imaginable. If you suffer from hay fever I wouldn't get this because it is such a hassle when it gets wet!
Rimmel Lasting Finish Lip Liner In Red Dynamite
This is so creamy and easy to apply! The colour is really pigmented and it was only £2.99 in Superdrug. Bargain. I may get a few more of these in different colours, they are amazing.
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer
I picked this up in the wrong colour when I was trying to find a back up. I've already got one and depend on it daily, so I'm gutted I got the wrong shade! I was in such a rush I didn't even notice.

Maybelline Colour Sensational Lipstick in Precious Beige (602)
I wanted a bronzed lipstick that made me look radiant and summery. This does exactly that because it has a gold shimmer that makes you look sun kissed. It can be quite drying though, and wears off quite quickly. I have 3 of these lipsticks and the drying factor doesn't put me off!

Revlon Lipgloss in Peach Petal
I love this lipgloss and am so glad I've finally caught on! The amount of times I've seen this on a blog is probably record breaking! It's not very sticky but is really pigmented. A lovely nude peach colour, perfect for summer. It looks great over Precious Beige too. 

It's fair to say I had a rather fun time taking all the deals in at Sainsbury's. Especially the easter eggs! I'm not all shopped out though, not a chance! 


  1. I got them from Sainsbury's, I believe they were around £6? Memory like a sieve! x

  2. You got some really nice things. I've heard great things about that mascara, but I haven't tried it yet because I want to use up the ones I currently have. I'm also adding to my wish list (literally writing it haha) those pore strips! Where did you buy them?
