Ireland Haul

1:52 PM

You knew this entry was coming right..?? 

I NEVER go to a new place without checking out their local drugstores. In Ireland the main drugstore is Boots & I loved it!!
 

I just can't hide my excitement!!

I made our suitcase several pounds heavier with all of the goodies I purchased!
What I bought..
-VO5 Gloss Me Smooth Shampoo & Conditioner
-Simple Oil Balancing Moisturizer
-Good Things Five Minute Facial
-Bourjois  Healthy Mix Foundation
-VO5 Give Me Texture
-Nivea Invisible Spray on Deodorant
-Simple Eye Makeup Remover
-17 Lipstick in Belle
-Vaseline in Rosy Lips
-Simple Hydrating Light Moisturizer
-Bourjois Bronzing Powder
-Collection 2000 Mascara

A closer look at some of the skin care...

These VO5 products smell like heaven, but they don't do much for my hair.

The Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation is amazing!! I really wish I would have bought several of these because I love this foundation. Did you know that Bourjois is considered a drugstore brand in Europe?!? This amazes me because the quality is amazing; plus when it was sold in the US you could only find it at Sephora.

Another thing I noticed while in Ireland, spray on deodorant is VERY common while gels/solids are not. 

The Vaseline Rosy lips smells like the perfume Stella.

A lot of people say that this smells like a chocolate bar, I disagree but the scent is pleasant. This bronzer is one of the very RARE bronzers that doesn't have shimmer, I really like this so far.

Another products I wish I bought more of - Nivea Daily Essentials Cleansing Wipes in Normal & Combination Skin. These wipes remove my makeup without irritating or drying out my skin. I will be sure to hunt some more of these down on the internet!

And lastly, I found a TopShop there and bought this pretty NICA bag.

Let me know if you use any of the products I purchased, I would love to know your opinions on them!
I hope you enjoyed my Ireland haul!!

  1. nice haul! drugstores have just started to carry some of the Simple line now - I have a pack of their wipes and they're pretty good at removing most of my makeup (some mascara on my lashes). the nivea wipes sound nice too!

  2. I've seen the Simple products around here, but there are several that I saw in Ireland that aren't here yet. Most of them were for us oily skin girls too... Sent via BlackBerry from T-Mobile

  3. actually, Bourjois is made by Chanel so that foundation is a dupe to one of the Chanel ones, not sure which one and yeah, it's an amazing foundation, too bad you didn't get back ups, they do sell it at asos.com but sometimes the shades are limited.  how good is the bronzer?  been dying to pick that one up !
