At the very start of this month, my boyfriend and I took a trip to the Body Shop. He works in the same shopping centre as our local Body Shop branch so as a result, he, along with his family and friends, were treated to 50% discount from the store for a few days only. I knew I had to take advantage of this amazing offer so I dragged him there and wandered around the store for over an hour while I found the perfect items.
I realised recently that I haven’t done a haul post in what feels like a while; it’s not because I haven’t been buying anything, it’s more that I have been buying bits and bobs and I didn’t want to do haul posts where I am showing one or two items. When I realised I hadn’t posted in a while, I collated all of the beauty-related items I bought for myself in November to show you guys, I hope you enjoy it!
When I found out Boots were having an event on whereby Advantage Card holders could spent £50 to earn £12 worth of points, I knew I had to take advantage of this. It was a little bit of an indulgence shopping spree as I didn’t really need anything that I bought and I’m not going to lie – part of me feels as though I bought unnecessary items just to earn the extra points. However, looking at everything I bought, I am glad I did so!
I feel like I have been posting quite a few haul posts recently, and no doubt there will be another one soon as Boots have an advantage card event on this Thursday, but I thought I would show you some of my recent Body Shop purchases. I went for a look around last week while I waited for my boyfriend to finish work and I ended up buying some makeup and FINALLY getting a Body Shop loyalty card! I have been to the Body Shop quite a lot recently but have always put off actually getting the loyalty card as there is an initial £5 cost, however I probably would have saved more than the £5 in discount bonuses if I had got the card a few months ago.
I have to be honest: I have had some of these items for a few weeks now and I am only just getting around to doing a haul post about them. It was my one-year anniversary with my boyfriend at the end of September and typically, I used that as an excuse to buy makeup!
At the end of July, I had a quick look on JohnLewis.com at the stuff they had in Clearance. I ended up finding a good bargain quite quickly – a £39 swimming costume for £11.90! I clicked on it and found that they only had a few left but my size was one of them! I thought this was a good omen so continued to look around the website and found 5 items in total that I thought were great bargains but even better clothes. Continue reading
For the past few weeks, I have been seeing The Body Shop’s Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter online quite a lot. Since my makeup-remover is quickly running out, I figured I would try some of this cleansing butter. It has probably been over a year since I last went to the Body Shop but I find that whenever I do, I always spend a lot…
- The Body Shop Sensual Massage Oil – £10
- Quick Fix Brightening Peel Mask from Boots – £4.99
- The Body Shop Silky Cleansing Oil – £10
- The Body Shop Vitamin E Cream Cleanser – £8.50
- The Body Shop Monoi Miracle Oil – £10
- The Body Shop Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter for all skin types – £12
So far I have only used the Massage Oil and Monoi Miracle Oil but I am impressed by both. While they’re not the cheapest items, they were on a Buy One Get One Half Price offer and since they’re oils, I know they will last a long time. Even though it’s not been a week since I left the Body Shop, I’ve already got my eye on some more items I want to buy ASAP…
Peace, love and happiness
