New In: Maybelline, Batiste, Oilatum & Original Source

I haven't done a haul post in forever so I thought i'd share a few of the beauty related things i've picked up this week.

Rimmel Lash Accelerator in Black
I picked up two of these as I love this mascara and I thought it was worth picking up as part of the 3 for 2 offer.

Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse
I've been using this foundation for years and although I really want to try the Bourjois Healthy Mix I thought i'd pick up another one of these until I have the time to properly try a new foundation as i'm so busy with exams and i'm always in a rush in a morning!

Batiste Dry Shampoos
I recently ran out of dry shampoo and it made me realise how much I rely on these. They were also on 3 for 2 and I picked up a variety of scents as I don't really have a favourite as long as it does it's job! I'm really looking forward to the new bigger cans coming out as it will mean I won't have to buy them as often.

Oilatum Natural Repair Face Cream
I'm definitely a convert to this cream and after seeing it featured on countless blogs I knew I had to try it! I've always had dry skin and this cream really improves it and my foundation looks a lot nicer over the top. It isn't the cheapest product in the world at just over £7 but it's worth every penny and you don't need to use much as it's quite thick.

Original Source Vanilla Milk & Raspberry Shower Cream
I got this from Sainsbury's and it's easily the best £1.01 i've spent this week! I haven't seen this new shower gel in any other shops but it smells amazing (like strawberry milkshake) and I can see myself repurchasing it! I know i'm not supposed to be buying any shower gels this year but please forgive me as I couldn't leave this one and I have used up quite a few of the Original Source ones I originally had! Sainsburys also had some new Original Source shower scrubs which looked really good too; they weren't on offer and seemed a bit pricey but they did smell good like all their other products!


  1. Dry hair shampoo. Best thing EVER

  2. I love the Original Source range, especially the Mint& Tea Tree shampoo, amazing!
    Is that foundation really good? I have pale skin but a lot of the pale colours in other brands stll seem abit orangey :/ But I would reccommend the Bourjois foundations, I use the 10hr Sleep and Bio Detox mixed together and they're so good :)

  3. Thanks for sharing! I love dream matt mousse too :) I've never tried dry shampoo, maybe I should :)


  4. I love the dry shampoo's, they smell so gorgeous & work so well.

    I didn't know they had a big bottle coming out, so looking forward to that! :)

  5. I LOVE Original Source shower gel in Lime so can't wait to try the new one! x

  6. Ahhh! I want to try this dry shampoo!!

  7. I love this post! I always wear dream matte mousse though, they had a 3 for 2 offer on a few weeks ago and I bought 3 of them, not realising I bought a really dark/orangey colour! So I've spent the past month or so being a nice orange shade because I have so much of the foundation, silly me!
