SuMmEr HaULiN'....

Ive been very good this summer..i promised my self i wouldn't buy any skin care or cosmetics since i have so many unopened i stuck to the necessities..sort of!
......and btw that is my belly button in the mirror hahahah ;)

I had a big event this month so i had to repurchase my favourite foundation Estee Lauder Double Wear Maximum Cover Camouflage Makeup for Face and Body SPF 15  in 2 shades darker since i got so tan..i went from a 03 Light/Medium to a 07 Medium/Deep..!

The sales assistant at the Estee Lauder counter insisted she do my was so lovely ... and i got the "guilty consumer" feeling that i also purchased the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Soft Duo Bronzer in 03 Amber Bronze was more than i wanted to spend on a bronzer...(37 euros)...but with 2 products you got a free goodie bag..and everyone knows I'm a sucker for goodie bags..

Estee Lauder Goodie Bag:

Sumptuous Bold Volume™ Lifting Mascara the SA used this mascara on be and i loved it! but i have a few mascaras to finish before i start using this one.
Advance Night Repair Eye a generous sample..i am currently using this at night..its ok dramatic results so far.

Last month i was wondering around a department store when the Dermaglow SA offered to show me some of their products and give me a few samples...
i tried out the Dermaglow 10% Glycolic Gentle Peel Solution sample she gave me and i was sold..
my skin looked amazing every morning after using this..3 days later i shelled out 60 euros for the full bottle..
unfortunately .. 2 huge cysts popped out of nowhere so i stopped using this product for now..
i really hope im not allergic to glycolic acid :(
..i will start using it once a week to avoid iritation after my skin clears up again.

the sales assistant also gave me a free Dermaglow Sun Protect Spf 45!
Another so-so sunscreen ..will i ever find my Holy Grail SPF??

A friend of mine with similar hair to mine (long, wavy blonde highlights) recommended John Frieda Frizz Ease Curl Around Style Activationg Shampoo. i love it! keeps hair smooth and my waves a lot less frizzy! there was also a 30% off on John Frieda Frizz Ease Hair Serum Extra‑Strength Formula For Coarse/Extremely Frizzy i picked it up since i have always wanted to try this. i havent used this yet .. only after my other serum runs out!

My hairdresser recommended Schwarzkopf Repair Rescue Sealed Ends to help with split ends. i wanted to repurchase Loreal Professionnel Spiral Splendour but they didnt carry it any more. These creams both work in similar ways..apply on damp hair and style..i never blow dry my hair .. just wash and braid at night and apply serum to the ends the next morning.

Finally it wouldn't be a haul without a stop at The Body Shop!
 i repurchased The Body Shop Banana Conditioner  and  The Body Shop Aloe Calming Facial Cleanser for Sensitive Skin.. both products i absolutely adore and will buy again and again!!

A new purchase was the The Body Shop Facial Muslin Cloths.
Since i cant try the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish i thought i would use something similar ..the Aloe Calming Faicial Cleanser and a Muslin cloth! i have to say i loveee it!! The muslin cloth is much more gentle on my skin for daily use than the Rounded Handle Facial Brush.

What do you think of these products?
