I'm sure we have all been there, you pop into boots for some essentials and end up landing £40 on the counter. That's just what happened to me last weekend. Since doing the Project Samples, I posted about this yesterday, I actually realised there were indeed a few things that were missing or I needed to repurchase.
Soap and Glory were on a 3 for 2 deal so used this to my advantage and took out three of the things that were on my shopping list. After using up all the sachets of conditioner there wasn't really one that I wanted to repurchase so I decided to try the Soap and Glory one. I've only used it once so haven't really decided on whether I like it yet. Another item that was needed was an exfoliator. With Leanne's wedding rapidly approaching and me having to bear my arms keratosis pilaris and all! - I need to get them looking fairly smooth, this exfoliator heats up so will be interesting to see how that turns out. Finally from Soap and Glory I picked up one of their massive shower gels, apparently these last for ages and I liked a sample I tried out! I often use shower gels as shaving gel too so this should be great value for money.
Some more hair products because apparently I don't have enough. The build up removal shampoo from Boots is something that has been on my wishlist for a while but it has always been out of stock. For once there it was so I picked it up, perfect timing too because I've just finished the Bumble and Bumble Sunday Shampoo, heads up - I prefer this one. Finally I bought a volumising hair dry spray, or however you describe it! Leanne had forgotten all her hair things when she came down and was asking for some sort of spray before she dried her hair, I've always been envious of her hair so this was a must. I tried the Charles Worthington Front Row Blow Dry Spray mainly because it was on offer and I couldn't be bothered to hunt the aisles. Let's just say it is love.
I do love a good Boots shopping spree!
What are you essentials?
