New Beauty Buys

Another little beauty haul full of new goodies. I needed to stock up on some bits after all my product empties. With a treat or two for myself as a little early Christmas present.

First is a bath bomb from Lush called Christmas Sweater. The scent is really strong and smells so Christmassy. It’s packed with ginger and mustard powder. I brought this for my daughter to put in her Christmas eve box so she can enjoy a lovely festive bath before the big day. I love the little reindeers they are so cute.

If you read my previous post you’d know I finished another tub of this Olay Firm & Lift Night Cream. It’s a great affordable option to moisturise and firm the skin. I instantly notice a difference in my skin and have repurchased this again and again since I discovered it.

I had almost ran out of heat protection spray so I picked up this Tresemme Heat Defence. As I like to mix up my hair care, I don’t really have a go to, but as this was currently less than half price I had to snap it up. I’ve used it in the past and really liked it.

Both my Aussie and Lee Stafford conditioners have ran out so I need to pick up some more asap. This Miracle Nourish intrigued me. I love Aussie products, they smell uh-mazing!

I’ve wanted to try this Shower Shake from the Zoella range for a while now and when I saw it was on offer, I had to pick it up. The bottle is adorable and with the cold weather an in-shower moisturiser is great as it means no standing around naked waiting for the cream to dry.

This Honey Bee Good soap from Bomb Cosmetics was gifted to me. The smell is lovely and I’ve been storing it in my clothes drawer to keep my clothes smelling lush.

Saving the best til last, this is the Urban Decay Ultimate Basics Palette

. If you read My Beauty Wishlist 3 you’ll know I’ve wanted this palette for the longest time. As it’s Christmas I thought I would treat myself. I would use every single shade in this most days as I’m always rocking a nude smokey eye. The packaging is beautiful and the mirror is really big. I much prefer this to the other Naked palettes.

That’s it for this beauty haul. I hope you enjoyed seeing my new beauty buys. Have you used any of these products? Did you like them? Let me know in the comments. Thanks for reading XOXO.

    I’ve had that UD palette for almost a year now, and it is the perfect arsenal of basic matte shades. If you are ever missing anything from another palette, this one totally comes to the rescue! And I agree, the mirror is superb!

    I’ve been thinking about the Naked palette, especially now with the Debenhams sale!
