Drugstore Haul | Re-Buys and New Try's

On Sunday I popped to my local Boots store during my lunch and picked up some products I always re-buy and a couple of new try's too.

First up is the Boots Simply Sensitive Toner. I use the whole of the Boots Simply Sensitive range and I love using this toner after cleansing my skin and removing all my make up. The aloe vera is great for my sensitive skin and is so cooling and calming. It's also great for removing the remaining bits of make up that often get missed in the hair line.

I also picked up the Boots Simply Sensitive Hydrating Night Moisturiser as I am starting to run out. This is great value for money and works wonders on my skin making it feel soft, supple and hydrated after use. 

My favourite foundation ever ever ever is the Rimmel London Lasting Finish 25 hr foundation. I love the serum in this foundation as I find it gives me more of a full coverage look without looking cakey. Plus this is the only brand I have found that has an exact match for my skin tone which is amazing to find as I am super pale and always end up looking orange and patchy with other brands I have tried.

The Collection Sheer Loose Powder is a godsend! I use the translucent powder but I accidentally picked up the shade 1 Barely There.. oops! Hopefully this works just as well for me and doesn't darken the colour of my foundation too much but the Collection powder is so affordable I wouldn't mind going back and picking up the correct shade *face palm*. This powder is great at setting my foundation and keeps it in place all day. Its great for those oily t-zones and I couldn't be without it!

The next product I picked up was Collection's Lasting Perfection concealer in #1 Fair. This is amazing value for money and it is perfect for covering up my dark circles, brightening my eyes and hiding all those nasty spots and blemishes that crop up. You can read my full review of the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer here.

My two new try's are the Barry M Sunsent Daylight Curing polishes. I picked up Vengeance in Wine as I thought it is the perfect colour for Autumn and looks so pretty! I also picked up the Daylight Curing topcoat to go with it. The Barry M Daylight Curing polishes give you the effect of gel nails without the UV lamps. As I am a qualified Beauty Therapist, I have a gel lamp myself so I know how amazing gels look with the colours that pop and a long lasting shine. These polishes promise the effects of gel nails minus the UV lamp. It works by painting your nails in two coats of your choice of colour (it has to be in the Sunset range) and finishing with the Sunset topcoat. The natural daylight then 'cures' the polish giving you that lovely glossy colour that lasts forever! I haven't tried them out properly yet but I am so excited too and if it works I will 100% be buying lots more colours!
