Duty Free...

Wednesday, 1 October 2014

I had a bit of a nightmare in duty free this year, I had planned to not spend anything at all, be good 
and save my pennies. However once I'd got to the airport I was a little nervous and needed something to keep my mind of the impending flight. The only thing I could partake in, was shopping. 

Leanne had a predetermined shopping list which started with MAC so we headed there. For some unknown reason I decided to try and find a nude liptick - I have no idea why as I usually just wear bright lipsticks. After trying a few I had settled on one, couldn't tell you what the name of it was but they didn't have it in stock so I couldn't buy it. This scenario continued for every single item I picked up. Three lipsticks and a foundation, needless to say I left MAC empty handed. 

I was pretty gutted, it's always nice to pick up a couple of new things and it was only when I got to The Body Shop that I picked up some bits. Leanne had heard about the Aqua Boost Sorbet so we got stuck in testing it on the backs of our hands, decided it felt great and promptly bought one. 

Whilst in The Body Shop I saw the moisture serum which Leanne had said is very similar to the less than budget friendly Caudile version. I think this was about £10, they had various discounts there too. So far so good, I really like using this and have noticed a good difference in the condition of my skin. This serum was also really nice to use whilst on holiday on my slightly sunburnt face - oops. 

The final purchase in duty free, apart from snacks for the plane, was the eye cream. I have bought a few over the past year and not like any of them. Most of the ones I have used already make my eyes water and I then just give up on them. Already knowing how gentle the Vitamin E range from The Body Shop I decided to pop this in the basket. Again, so far so good. I can't say I've noticed a huge difference but I think in your early twenties its more about preventing the deterioration of the skin around your eyes. 

Have you tried anything from The Body Shop recently?
