Haul! New Stuff I bought since Boxing Day! 👀

Hi there! Today’s post is about most of the stuff I bought since Boxing Day. There is one gift set I have no photo of because it’s already been packed up for the house move. The gift set is a Thierry Mugler Aura fragrance set (plus mini shower gel and mini body lotion). OK, now let’s look at the goodies I was able to take photos of!

I bought plenty of face masks. Primark had a number of heavily discounted face masks (some £1, some 50p), and I bought over 20. I also picked up 3 Yes To face masks for a total of £2 (reduced to clear for £1 each and a 3 for 2 offer on top at Boots). I also found Simple face masks at Poundland, Boots and B&M Bargains. They normally retail for £2.99 each, but most of them were £1, some £1.49.

A set of mini nail files from Superdrug. The set was 10p (clearance). Bioré Pore Penetrating Charcoal Bar for £1.99 at Home Bargains!

A set of 4 Charcoal Self-Heating One Minute Masks from Bioré£1.99 at Home Bargains. And a set of 3 fruity face masks from Superdrug for £1.49 (I bought 2 sets).

Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Micro Polish – 3 tubes for 60p each (clearance). A set of nail files – these were 50p at Poundland (clearance bin). I use glass nail files at home, but I always carry one of those cheapo files in my handbag.

Sanctuary Spa face mask set£2.99 at Superdrug. I bought 2 sets! I have no idea if these are any good, but I thought I might give one of these sets to a friend.

Imperial Leather Narwhal Always Love You and Imperial Leather Drop It Like A Sloth shower gels. I found these at Poundland – 400ml each for £1 each. I’m looking forward to using these cute shower gels! 😍

And this is most of what I bought since Boxing Day. I did buy 5 nail polishes (all Revlon, £1 each at Poundland), but these have been packed up for the move as well.

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Micro Polish

Superdrug Naturally Radiant Brightening Micro PolishHi there! A few weeks ago I fell in love with Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Brightening Renewal Face Mask. So I wanted to try a few more products from Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant range.

Superdrug also ran a half price promotion. Needless to say, I bought several products. 🙂 But now let’s focus on Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Brightening Micro Polish.

This product promises to exfoliate skin, to refine skin texture and to clarify skin discolouration with the help of kiwi and mulberry extracts, blueberry seeds and fruit acids.

As per the instructions on the back of the tube, this micro polish should be… (I’m almost quoting) massaged over wet or dry skin in a circular motion. Then you’re supposed to add a splash of water and work the product into a lather. And then the product should be rinsed off.

Oh, and this micro polish scrub is meant to be used once or twice weekly.

When I used this product for the first time, I noticed that it wasn’t as gritty as I thought it would be. That’s because this micro polish doesn’t contain any harsh and abrasive ingredients like ground walnut shells or crushed apricot seeds. So whilst this micro polish doesn’t give my face the St. Ives treatment, I can definitely feel its cleansing and exfoliating powers. And I don’t have to worry about microscopic cuts on my skin surface. 🙂

By the way, other scrubs that don’t contain walnut shell powder or crushed apricot seeds are Superdrug’s Simply Pure Smoothing Face Scrub and Olay’s Essentials Smoothing Face Scrub (which, I think, is being discontinued – it’s now available for £1 at Poundworld and Bargain Buys).

Now back to Superdrug’s Naturally Radiant Brightening Micro Polish. 🙂 I think it’s a fab product and I’d recommend it in an instant. I’ll continue to use it weekly and I’ll definitely buy it again! The 75ml tube is usually £4.99. But I paid £2.45 only for my micro polish. So I suggest you keep your eyes peeled for half price or BOGOF offers to get the best deal! 🙂

By the way, since I’ve been so impressed with the face mask (I use it every Saturday) and the micro polish (I use it every Tuesday), I bought a few more Naturally Radiant products which I’ll review within the next couple of weeks.

Thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed the post. 🙂
