Last Saturday after meeting some friends to have afternoon tea at Covent Garden I decided to do a little trip to one of the Boots in Oxford Street to spend a couple of coupons that I had been keeping in my wallet for a while… That was the excuse at least.
Of course I end up buying more stuff…
I don’t know if this happens to you as well. I go into Boots or Superdrug with some clear list of the things I want to buy but with the intention of having a quick look around…then I start seeing all these things that I’ve seen lately on other people’s blogs and decide to give them a go…
Half an hour (being optimistic here…) later I emerged from the store with a (sometimes huge) bag full of products… Some will power for me, please!
Anyway, these are what I bought.
First, the whole purpose as I said of going into Boots was to get some discounted N7 products, which I feel are on the pricier end of drugstore products, so I used two £5 off coupons.
As I mentioned in my latest post I think, I used the night cream version of this before and was pretty happy with it. My skin is not as firm as it was (damn aging!) and for some reason in winter it becomes more obvious to me.
I now use the Olay Regenerist 3 point treatment cream, the one with the red pot (pssst, buy it from Amazon, much cheaper and free delivery!) together with the new serum.
So I decided to get it for day instead. I don’t remember any spectacular result with the night cream but my skin did look more radiant. So I hope this in combination with the Olay serum (which I use night and day before applying cream) will do the job. I’ll keep you posted.
Please bear in mind that I’m in my late 30’s. I think all these products I’m mentioning will be way too thick for girls in their 20’s…
I saw this in supercute’s Sophie’s Blog (Sophie’s Choice, link on the sidebar) and since I have broken capillaries around my nose and some in my cheeks ( I believe this is the payoff too many crazy sun sessions in my youth…) decided to try it.
This is scary green so I use a tiny dollop only on those areas that I need it. I still need concealer after this but I think it evens out the color and the primer does the trick. I’ve noticed since I’ve been using it my (mineral powder) foundation stays put for much longer (before it just disappeared at the end of the day).
For £6 with the coupon I think this is a pretty good deal.
I will wait for another coupon to try the Shine control primer, which I’ve heard from a Youtuber (dianeuk01) that works really well.
I also bought these…
After how much I liked the Deep Clean range and since I’ve finished those (check out My Gone Baby Gone posts) I decided to try these new ones.
The wipes are great as usual. Have plenty of product (unlike the St Ives or the Superdrug sensitive ones) and leave you with a clean skin.
Haven’t tried the scrub yet.
Check out the rest of the haul in my next post!
Have you tried any of these?
How do you like them?
Have a lovely Sunday!
