As I mentioned in my Easter With Marks & Spencer post, I spent my weekend in Norwich. Norwich has an amazing town centre which can only mean one thing... shopping! I thought I'd share some of the goodies I bought with you all. Enjoy!
Ecotools Ultimate Air Dryer Hair Brush - £9.99
I've seen a few posts about these new style of hair brushes from the Ecotools range and was intrigued. They supposedly dry hair 40% faster than normal hair brushes (due to the oval ring in the middle of the brush) and they also have several other benefits too. I'll be doing a review shortly to let you all know what I think.
OGX Anti Breakage Keratin Oil Shampoo - £6.99
Recently my hair has been breaking all over the place (much to my Mother's annoyance). I thought I'd better try out a few products in the hopes that I can prevent further damage. I was drawn to this product as my hairdresser always uses products with Keratin oil in. I also noticed it was targeted specifically for anti-breakage. Fingers crossed it'll work.
OGX Argan Oil Of Morocco Dry Oil - £6.99
I went into Boots purposely on the hunt for this particular product. I recently tried a tester of this oil and fell in love with it. As the haircare range in Boots was 3 for 2 I thought there was no better time to get my hands on it. It leaves your hair really shiny and healthy looking. Always a winner!
OGX Weightless Hydration Coconut Water Conditioner - £6.99
In order to complete my 3 for 2 deal I chose another product from the range, a conditioner. I love coconut scents so had to go for this product. It's supposed to transform dry, parched hair into silky, shiny perfection. I have high hopes for this brand!
Twilight Bath Ballistic - £3.35
I was a little disappointed with the Lush in Norwich as they had barely any of the Easter range on sale. Because of this I decided to pick up an old favourite of mine instead. Twilight is a lovely sweet/floral smelling bath ballistic. I haven't used this product for such a long time so I'm looking forward to using it on my week off!
Phoenix Rising Bath Bomb - £3.35
I was really attracted to this smell despite not knowing what the hell it was. It's not my normal type of scent as it's not sweet or girly in the slightest (in fact I'd say it's quite a manly scent myself). I later found out it was Shea butter and cinnamon. It probably isn't for every one but I had to get it.
Rainbow Bright Gift Set - £10.95
I got this little set as an add on gift for my friend's birthday. It contains a 120g block of Somewhere Over The Rainbow soap (mandarin oil and rose) and a 100g tub of Pot O' Gold shower jelly (orange, pineapple, myrrh and vanilla). I thought the price was really reasonable and the packaging is super cute.
Marks & Spencer
Leighton Denny 'Scream To Go Faster' Nail Paint - £8.80 (normally £11)
I'm loving the beauty range in M&S as of late. They've introduced a load of quality brands such as REN, Bliss, Rituals and their latest brand.. Leighton Denny. I'm a massive fan of this brand and love all of the colours in the new 'Welcome To The Funfair' range. I saw this colour a few weeks back and loved it, however, due to the £11 price tag and my very poor bank balance I had to walk away. I popped in this weekend (having been paid) and noticed there was a 20% off beauty products offer going on. My poor will power and love for the colour tempted me to purchase it at last! I can't wait to paint my nails with it!
Skinny Sculpt & Lift Skinny Jeans - £7.99 (originally £35)
Technically I didn't purchase these items, my Mum did. She saw them in the sale and thought they were too good a bargain not to pick up for me. I much prefer dark skinny jeans as opposed to leggings or denim jeans so I've no doubt I'll get a lot of wear out of these.
The Body Shop
Super Soft Cleansing Brush - £10
This is probably a bit of a gimmick but I'm a sucker for skincare tools. This brush is supposed to deep cleanse your pores whilst being gentle on the skin. You wet the brush, apply a small amount of cleanser and rub over your face and neck. I've yet to try it out but I'll let you know if it's worth it's £10 price tag!
So, I had a semi successful shopping trip and managed to pick up a few items I've never tried before. I also didn't spend too much so my bank balance is still in tact (sort of).
Let me know if you'd like reviews on any of the products and I'll be happy to give that a go.
Thanks for reading!
