Bargain Boots Haul

A haul! Remember those? 
It's been a good while since one of these has appeared on A Yellow Brick Blog - mainly because I have been saving my money/have no money.
 BUT I have  cheeky little one to share with you all today and most of this stuff I purchased with my Boots advantage card points and more or less all of them were total bargains (my fav!) - I think only 1 item cost me more than £3 - so all is good!
Garnier Ultimate Blends The Sleek Restorer Shampoo & Conditioner
Newbies out on he shelves of the UK, I have been eyeing these up since the day they were released. Mainly because of the scents - I am obsessed with just smelling everything when mooching round Boots, does anyone else do this? I saw the larger bottles of these were half price so only £1.94 each so of course picked up this duo - with coconut oil and cocoa butter surely this can't be bad!

Frizz-Ease Overnight Repair Formula
This was £1.75..... yes I kid you not! Under £2 for a full-sized John Frieda overnight treatment - hell yes. Love a good clearance bargain and I got a few in this trip! I'm looking forward to trying this out especially with the weather getting a little warmer - more frizz is bound to try and creep it's way into my life and I'm just not having it!

Lee Stafford Mini Poker Straight Treatment 
50p!!!! Fifty British piece for this mini treatment tube! What a steal! I'm going to save this for before a big night out when I want straight glossy soft locks! 

V05 Smoothly Does It Straightening Lotion
Now this was actually quite a random purchase - I had to get my boyfriend's hair stuff which is by VO5 and I noticed their styling products were 2 for £5! His stuff was about £3.20 ... so clearly I had to get myself something if it was just going to cost me an extra £1.80! This is what I found - it looks fab and is £6.29 on its own so to get this along with the boyf's hair wax for just £5 - bargain city! Really looking forward to trying this out!

L'oreal Elvive Fibrology Hair Mask
Bought it. Tried it. LOVE it. This made my hair feel amazing - I could run my fingers through my hair straight after the shower - whereas normally I'm there with my moroccanoil and tangle teezer trying to get rid of all the knots and craziness! It was half price at £2.54 and think I may invest in another to keep me going! 
Boots Essentials Cucumber Eye Gel
After recently trying out the face mask from this brand I set out on a mission to find another product to try! This like the mask was only 99p on offer and after reading so many rave reviews I couldn't resist! Bring on de-puffed eyes and hopefully smaller bags!

Nivea Soft Cream 200ml
This stuff is a god send and lasts for months and months - I swear the last one I bought was last summer and I haven't even finished it yet! Saying that it is near the end and this had about 1/3 off and had a cute limited edition packaging so grabbed it while I could! This is a lovely moisturiser I use for more or less anything and I love the smell of Nivea products! 

Montagne Creamy Coconut Face Mask Sachet
This sachet was only 66p so thought I would grab it for the night time I decide to give myself a bit of a pampering. I love the smell of coconut and heard this works so well at hydrating the skin so can't wait to give it a whirl! 

Boots Double Faced Cotton Wool Pads
Can't live without these badboys. I don't know how anyone can use small thin cotton pads - I have to have these thick huge double sided ones! I use these mainly for my Liz Earle Skin Tonic which I use twice a day - my routine is incomplete without it! This are also great for removing nail polish - just one pad can do nearly all my fingers!
Bourjois Colour Boost Lip Crayon - 04 Peach On The Beach
This is a product I have been eyeing up for months and months and months - ever since they were announced really!
 I have seen so many people wearing it, talking about it, blogging about it and so when I spotted it the other day I knew it was about time I bought it (and it was with my Boots points so didn't feel like I was splashing out on an unnecessary item!) This colour is gorgeous and I love the finish of these lip crayons - I can tell this is going to be one of my most worn of Spring/Summer this year and I am now itching to buy the rest of the collection!

Burt's Bees Revitaliing Lipbalm with Blueberry & Dark Chocolate 
My addiction to buying lip balms seems to be never ending! This was also a clearance item so for only £1.85 I couldn't just walk past without adding it to my basket of goodies! This smell so yummy and is a great lip balm! Burt's Bees are a brand I really want to try more of so if you have any recommendations let me know!

So there we have it - a little Boots haul for you all! Any products in there that you own/have tried? Have you bought anything from Boots lately?

  1. I haven't tried the coconut mask but I often keep multiple packets of the chocolate mask from the same brand and it works really well! Not as well as say, Origins products, but for the price, it's definitely a great mask!


    1. The chocolate one is the next one on my list to try! X

  2. I hate that lip balm, it just is not my jam..I much prefer the mango one!

    1. Really?! I love it! So tempted to invest in a few of the other flavours too! X

  3. you picked up some fab things!! I always pop the cucumber eye gel in the fridge!! so soothing in the morning :) xx

    1. Feels so nice doesn't it! Bye bye bags! X
