HAUL! New Products From Boots, No 7, Sanctuary Spa, Marks & Spencer, Fragonard, Olay, Westlab, Radox, Dead Sea & More

Hi there! Today’s post is about most of the stuff I bought since the post-Christmas sale started. I’m saying most of the stuff because I always forget a lot… OK, let’s take a look at the goodies!

Boots Skincare Treats The Discovery Collection – this was £10 on Boxing Day. I bought 3 of these. The 2 moisturisers are worth £25 alone! The set would have been great value for full price = £20, but it was the most amazing bargain for half price on Boxing Day!

I bought more face masks – but what else is new? Some half price Disney masks, some £1 masks from B&M Bargains.

The Sanctuary Spa Celebration Hamper – this was £20 on Boxing Day and it had the following goodies:

These look amazing!

And these too!

I bought a few more products from Boots’ discontinued Live + Be range. The cheapest item was £1, the most expensive item was £1.75.

A few more Live + Be products.

I also bought fragrances from M&S. The first 2 were £9.50, the third was £12.50. All of them are repurchases.

I bought a number of different Westlab bath salts, the one above was £2.99 at Boots.

I also bought more Radox bath salts. The one above was £2.25 at Sainsburys.

2 more Radox shower gels – these were about £1.30 (or so) each at Superdrug.

Fragonard Belle De Nuit fragrance – £20 at M&S, the Olay Face Wash was £2.09 at Boots, the the Botanics Face Scrub was 33p (£2.33 plus 200 Advantage points for buying a Botanics product).

I also rescued 2 Dead Sea Natural Mineral Soaps from the clearance bin.

And this is it! Quite a bit, eh? Well, what can I say. I’ll always be a bargain hunter! Thanks for stopping by today! 😊

Alberto Balsam Pink Grapefruit & Guava

Hi there! Earlier this year I have rediscovered Alberto Balsam products. I was quite pleased with the products I tried recently, so I wanted to give Superfruits Pink Grapefruit and Guava shampoo and conditioner for normal or oily hair a try too.

At first let me say that this is my favourite Alberto Balsam scent. The other two Superfruits scents (Mango and Passionfruit, Mulberry and Acai Berry) are really nice, but Pink Grapefruit and Guava smells absolutely delicious. This scent should be part of Alberto Balsam’s standard assortment.

Now let me talk about the products: The shampoo lathers well and it does a great job cleansing my hair and scalp without feeling too harsh. My husband loves this shampoo too – for the same reasons. He even asked me to buy it more often!

The conditioner is quite decent. Whilst it’s nothing special, it does what it says on the bottle. It detangles my hair without weighing it down, so I can’t complain.

In summary, I’m really happy with this shampoo and conditioner combo. Based on my recent positive experience with Alberto Balsam I expected these products to be good, but the fresh and fruity scent has absolutely won me over. I will definitely buy these two products again.

Alberto Balsam Superfruits Pink Grapefruit and Guava Shampoo and Conditioner are available as 400ml each. They’re £1.29 each at the big supermarkets, but you can find these products for £1 in Poundstores.
