Mini Drugstore Haul

So on my lunch break last week I wasn't feeling too great, so I decided to take my full lunch hour, get a little fresh air and ended up having a little mooch around Boots and Superdrug, which meant that I finally got round to picking up a few 'must haves' that have been on my list for a little while. I set out with a list and actually stuck to it for the first time in a very long time. I have since bought a few more beauty bits but I thought it would be best to split them into more than one post.

Here's what I bought...



Garnier Skin Naturals Micellar Cleansing Water 400ml £4.99 Boots

When I noticed that I was running low on my beloved L'oreal Micellar Water, I went on the hunt for the New Garnier version. Although I think the L'oreal micellar water is pretty amazing, I've heard such good reviews about the Garnier version recently and you seem to get a lot more for your money, so I thought it was worth a try. I'm excited to use it, so much so, that I'm literally soaking my cotton pad each time I use the L'oreal one, in order to use it up quicker, as I don't want to open the other until it has ran out. I've searched each supermarket I've been to food shopping in the past couple of weeks and was disappointed that I couldn't find it any of them, but I finally found it in Boots and I can't wait to give it a try.

Q Awe The Fine Fragrance Body Spray 100ml £2.29 £1.14 Boots

I first heard of Q when I received a full size body spray from them in one of my first every beauty boxes, Glossybox if I remember rightly, and if I'm honest at the time I just thought, whoopdy-woo it's a body spray! However I was pleasantly surprised to find that Q body sprays are filled with the most amazing scents, and they last all day long too. This is my first repurchase as I didn't know that Boots stocked them until a few months ago and when I saw they were on offer at half price, I thought what better time to try out the different scents! This time I picked up the Radiance spray with Rose and Bergamot, this is the perfect scent for everyday, subtle yet sophisticated.

Vichy LiftActiv Advanced Filler 2ml sample free. 30ml £31 Boots 

Who can resist a freebie? I was looking at the skincare section when I came across a mound of these little 2ml samples amongst the tester tubes. I must admit, I did just pick it up because it was free, I'm not going to lie to you, I hadn't heard of the product before but the fact that it contains retinol definitely intrigued me.


B. Vibrant Lip & Cheek Colour in Fandango 112 £7.99 £5.32 Superdrug

B. is one of those brands, that I've heard of, been intrigued about but never actually checked out, however when I saw these on the lovely Evelyn's blog We Were Raised By Wolves and saw that B. had a third off, making these just £5.32 I found it hard to resist. I love lip colours like this in a kind of pen form as I think they're easy to apply and the perfect size to fit in your handbag. These also look super glossy and the colour range is fab too.

MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighting Powder £3 Superdrug

I have been searching for this product for too long in my local superdrug, I have been in almost every other day just to see if they have it back in stock. Then last week I popped in to look for the B. Lip colour and they actually had a shelf full. This is such a hyped up product that I hope it's as good as everyone says it is, though at just £3 you can't really go wrong.

Do you own any of these products? What do you think to them?
