Another mini haul (guess what I bought!)

I went into town today to get some stuff done, and couldn't help but pop into poundland (again) and yet again, I found a couple of bargains :) I was actually so busy that I didn't even make it into Boots! (probably for the best really...I'd only buy more things!)

Predictably for me, those two items are lip balm and nail polish... Actually I did also buy some nail polish remover (which I got ID'ed for!!!!!! I'm 23 for goodness sake!!!!) but that's not very interesting :)

I've been wanting to try a Blistex lip balm for a while now, but somehow never got around to it, so when I saw this Blistex Intensive Moisturiser for just £1 I really couldn't resist :) It has an interesting scent- a lot like toothpaste! But it seems really nice so far- I've only used it once but it had a nice creamy texture (again quite unusual for a lip product) and left my lips nice and smooth.




I also came across another Revlon gem today- this is Plum Nights and it's a beautiful true purple shade, something I've been wanting for ages as all the purples I have seem to have quite strong pink or plummy tones.




I don't think I've been too terrible at the whole 'trying not to buy more polish' thing- after all this was only £1, and I've not bought any others in the past month :)


Have you been saving or splurging recently?

  2. I have a soft spot for purples, and this one is nice :)
    Getting ID'd for polish remover, very odd! I get ID'd all the time, strangest thing was for UHU glue... lol!

    1. Me too :)
      I know! I know I generally look younger than my age.... but I'm sure I must look older than 18 by now!

  3. You can be ID'd for nail polish remover? I'm pretty sure anyone can buy remover here...

    1. Apparantly so... she did only ask how old I was, and when I said 23 she believed me (because anyone under 18 wouldn't saying they were that much older!) but it's never happened before and I buy quite a lot of nail polish remover!
