Recent Boots Haul

So a couple of days ago, I popped to my local Boots to pick up a replacement Benefit boi-ing concealer (as I get through these like lightning) and I came away with all of this.

A bit naughty as I only went in for one thing (ooops) but it wasn't all too bad as my lovely boyfriend decided to buy me my concealer and the hair oil as these were the most expensive things I was buying, which I thought was quite sweet of him!!

The hair products:

L to R - VO5 gloss me smoothly shampoo and conditioner (in its new packaging) and Lee Stafford Arganoil nourishing miracle oil

The Face products:

L to R - Soap & Glory Sexy Extreme Plump Mother Pucker, Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder and Benefit Boi-ing Concealer.

I've used the VO5 shampoo and conditioner before and they're actually one of my most favourites for a cheaper product. It doesn't seem to cause a build up and leaves my hair really shiny. They have recently launched the new packaging and I think that it looks a lot more modern and sleek.

The Lee Stafford Oil is a fairly new product and I can't wait to try this!! It claims to be lightweight and give you the smoothest, silkiest, healthiest hair yet. Thats quite a claim and im desperate to know if it delivers as most hair oils that i've tried, have always left my hair quite greasy looking.

Soap & Glory mother pucker in extreme plump is amazing!! I used this for the first time today and I am very impressed!! I haven't used one of their normal plumping lipgloss products before so this seemed to really tingle for a long time but I loved the results.

I haven't tried Rimmel's stay matte powder before either but i've read good things about this product on various blogs so wanted to give it a try.

And finally, my benefit concealer. I absolutely swear by this product and have used it solidly now for about five years!! Seriously I get through so many of them though as I use it every single day under my eye's and also on blemishes when I have them.

I think i'll be doing quite a lot of reviews on all of these products once I have tried them and can't wait to see the results.

Has anyone tried any of these products?! What do you think of them?!

I'll be interested to see what you think about the Lee Stafford Argan Oil. I was going to buy the Moroccan Oil today but resisted! x

@ Jo - I'll definately be doing a review on it i think as I think quite a few people are interested in it :-) Well done to you for resisting to spend x x

I wanted to buy Soap & Glory Sexy Extreme Plump Mother Pucker, but the price scared me a little bit. When I went home for Eater (I'm originally from Poland) I bought much cheaper equivalent. So far I used it only once, but I was wondering if you also have this weird tingling sensation after application... Anyway, I don't see a massive change in my lips. ;)

@ Mademoiselle Lala - It is quite expensive but its on offer at the moment in Boots for around £6 instead of the usual £10. I do get the weird tingling sensation and it does last for a while, its normal to feel that.
The change wasn't that dramatic, I think the fact that its quite glossy makes your lips look bigger to be honest!! :-) x x
