Poundland Clearance Haul – New Stuff & 50% Off Everything!

Hi there! A week ago I mentioned that one of the local Poundland stores is closing down and that I might stock up on stuff… well, I did! The store is closing this Saturday, 11 March, and as of now everything’s 50% off! So let me show you what I bought. 🙂

Poundland had 2 eyeshadow brushes and 2 foundation brushes left. They’re mine now. I think Poundland’s make-up brushes are really good. I’ve been using all sorts of different make-up brushes from Poundland for years – and I have yet to come across a dud. I also bought 4 nail art brush sets, and 2 sharpener & eyebrow brush sets. I wanted the sharpeners, but I don’t need the eyebrow brushes. But I can see that these eyebrow brushes might come in handy for nail art…

Whilst almost all the shampoos were gone, the store had lots of conditioners left. I picked up 3 Gliss conditioners (I can pick up the matching shampoos elsewhere). They had all sorts of different conditioners, but I only bought conditioners that I actually like and use. The ones I got for myself are Ultimate Volume, Ultimate Colour and Liquid Silk.

I got myself another Daily Defense Keratin conditioner (bought at Poundstretcher) and Alberto Balsam’s Mandarin & Papaya shampoo and conditioner.

And there’s more hair stuff! I bought another Alberto Balsam conditioner – this one’s Stunning Shine. And I picked up another Harmony Hair Indulgence shampoo and conditioner combo. And I found one more L’OrĂ©al Deep Conditioner.

I found a Wonder Woman shower gel and shampoo set – and the matching fragrance as a roll-on! And I bought 5 nail products2 L’OrĂ©al polishes, 1 Poundland glitter topper, 1 Poundland cuticle oil and 1 Poundland nail hardener.

This is what I bought. I paid ÂŁ14 in total for all these goodies!

Alberto Balsam Stunning Shine Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Alberto Balsam’s Stunning Shine Shampoo and Conditioner. I picked up these two items when they were on special for ÂŁ1 each at my local Asda. It’s a great deal, I know! 🙂 But let’s not discuss my bargain hunting. Let’s get to the review!

The shampoo smells lovely. Many peach-scented products smell of peach skin, but this shampoo smells like the actual fruit. It’s fruity, but it’s not artificially sweet. I like it! I also think this shampoo cleanses my hair well. And at the same time it’s not harsh. Very nice!

The conditioner is good too. It’s quite thin, but it conditions and detangles my hair surprisingly well. And the pleasant peach fragrance really lingers. Awesome stuff!

I don’t think these two products make my hair particularly shiny. But I would say they help maintain my hair’s natural shine. I’m enjoying these products very much and I will buy them again, no doubt!

Alberto Balsam’s Stunning Shine Shampoo and Conditioner are available as 300ml for ÂŁ1.50 each.
