Haul: St. Ives, Barry M, Sally Hansen and Sainsburys

Monday, 1 October 2012 21:14

Hey guys! I have a small haul post today for you. I bought these things at different times but thought I'd let them collect and then put them all in a post together. The first three images show things I bought recently at Superdrug:

Barry M Nail Paints in 'Dusky Mauve', 'Orange Web Effects' and 'Pink Iridescence'. I love Barry M nail polishes, they are by far the best value for quality and you just can't go wrong with them. The mauve shade has subtle purple shimmer through it and is perfect for Autumn. The orange web effect one is pretty self explanatory! The pink iridescent shade is just gorgeous, a really pale sheer pink with almost holographic thin glitter. These were £2.99 each for the mauve and pink shades and £3.99 for the effects shade, although I got the web effects free at Superdrug for buying 2 other Barry M products.

This is the Sally Hansen 'Insta-Dri' nail polish top coat. It is a glossy clear top coat that claims to make your nails touch dry in just 30 seconds and it seriously works! I wouldn't use any other top coat now, this makes painting your nails so much quicker and easier. I got it for half price at Superdrug last month, although usually it is £4.99.

The next product I bought was the St. Ives apricot scrub. the gentle one for dry and sensitive skin. I've tried this a couple of times already and must say, it smells divine! It isn't too harsh on my skin, which is great as it can be really dry and some products can sting a little. I think I will definitely be using this every day for a long time! Again I got this for half price at Superdrug recently, although it is £4.99 now which is the full price.

Finally, I have something a little bit different but I love it so much I just had to tell you about it! It is this super fluffy purple jumper from Sainsburys in the pyjama section. It is designed to be worn indoors, as pyjamas (you don't say!), so I got it as a kind of 'lounging around' jumper for the colder months. I have hardly taken it off since I bought it as it is just the warmest, comfiest thing I own! It is just £12, but Sainsburys were having a sale last week and I got it for £9! I just love it!

So there we go, a few random little bits, but I hope you enjoyed it all the same! What bargains have you come across recently?

  4. I really wanted to take advantage of the free web effects polish the other day! But literally the stock for Barry M in my store is so rubbish and I couldn't find 2 products which I wanted. Let us know if it works, I'm intrigued :)
