HUGE SPRING DRUGSTORE HAUL!

16th Apr 2017 - Beauty

As part of the second instalment of my Spring Trilogy series (check out the first instalment here!) I decided to film the BIGGEST drugstore haul I’ve ever done! I don’t know about you, but there’s something about the change of season that inspires me to head to the shops and check out what new beauty items are hitting the shelves. For me, its also a time when I like to stock up on some of my everyday necessities to see me through the next few months. As well as taking a trip to some of my all time fave drugstore spots in Canada, the other week I also placed a rather large Boots order and ended up with a pretty huge collection of skincare, haircare and makeup goodies. So many of you guys tell me that you love my drugstore hauls and drugstore favourites videos so I really hope that you enjoy reading and watching my latest drugstore offering. Grab yourself a cup of tea for this one!

From the size of this haul you might have already guessed that shopping at the drugstore is one of my all time favourite things to do. When I first moved to London I remember spending hours upon end browsing the shelves of Boots and Superdrug, in awe of all the amazing things that I’d never heard of or seen before!

Soap & Glory is one of my all time favourite drugstore brands. When I hopped off the plane in London all those years ago, the Soap & Glory ‘Clean On Me’ shower gel was one of the first things that I bought and ever since then the signature super sweet scent has always filled me with a sense of nostalgia. Nowadays I always make sure to stock up on ‘Clean On Me’ whenever I notice my own bottle running empty in the shower. Speaking of showers, I also decided to pick up the L’Oreal Botanicals ‘Geranium Radiance Remedy’ Shampoo and matching Conditioning Balm. I’m always on the hunt for new hair products to try, so when I saw that the Botanicals range promised to revive dull, coloured hair I just had to add these babies to my basket. I’m yet to try them out but I already know that they smell incredddddible so I have no doubt that I’m going to love them!

It wouldn’t be a drugstore haul if I didn’t include some makeup items right? Well, that’s what I told myself as I approached the Revlon aisle (eek)! While back home in Canada I stumbled upon the Revlon counter and let me tell you, your girl couldn’t hold back! Revlon have such a beautiful collection of lip products available and I just couldn’t resist coming home with a couple to add to my ever growing collection (oops). I decided to pick up a few of their ‘Super Lustrous’ lipsticks including the shades ‘Sultry Samba’ which is a stunning hot pink colour and ‘Carnival Spirit’ a beautiful, sheer and shiny orange. From Boots I added a couple of the NYX ‘Away We Glow’ Liquid Highlighters in the shades ‘Crystal Glare’ and ‘Liquid Prism’. I hadn’t heard anyone talk about these NYX highlighters before so I thought that I would give them a whirl and see how they look IRL. I was expecting the formula to be quite harsh and require a lot of blending, but actually the pay off is lovely and subtle so I’ll definitely be using them a lot this season.

The products that I’ve mentioned are just a few of the items that I featured in my Drugstore Haul video, so make sure you head over to my YouTube channel to check it out and see what other goodies I’ve picked up recently. I’d love to know what products you guys would recommend that I try so please leave me a comment down below and tell me what your favourites are! I’ll be back soon with the last instalment of my Spring Trilogy series! Until then, enjoy!
