Three New Drugstore Purchases

This January was one of the most awful Januaries ever for me. I had just arrived home from an amazing and exciting experience living in Portugal and I was absolutely gutted about the horrible rainy and windy weather! As if that wasn't bad enough I was severely lacking in funds from all of the Christmas gift buying and festivities, so I couldn't even go shopping to perk myself up! Being so poor I decided to take a trip to the drugstore to see if I could find a few reasonably priced goodies to brighten up an otherwise dreary month...

As I mentioned in a previous post I have stopped wearing high covergage foundations and started using only BB creams. I find that if I use a decent coverage concealer to cover up blemishes then my skin actually doesn't look that bad! I picked up this Bourjois 123 Perfect CC Cream seeing as I have used the foundation before (review here) and rather enjoyed it. I'm really looking forward to this as I have seen and heard so many good things about it and I particularly think the fact it has SPF 15 in will certainly make it a summer staple! 

Next, is something not all that exciting but I honestly live such a sad life so this genuinely made me so happy. I've been using the Soap and Glory Hand Maid Antibacterial Hand Cleansing Gel for years now in the original scent and I really like it and it seems to last a decent amount of time. However, seeing as Sugar Crush is my all time favourite S&G smell I just had to pick up the Sugar Crush Hand Sanitizer. It smells a bit like lime mixed with vanilla and it may be a little too sweet for some peoples tastes but I love it! They also now have a hand cream in this scent so no doubt I'll be picking that up soon too!

Lastly, I wanted to pick up my usual Maybelline Falsies Mascara, however I was gutted to find the stand empty and so began my search to find something else to try. I picked up the Rimmel Wonderfull Mascara which supposedly contains argan oil making it more comfortable to wear on your lashes. I've alreaddy tried this out and although I don't quite love it as much as my  Maybelline favourite I do agree that it definitely feels comfortable on my eye lashes and does a really good job of separating them and making them super long! 

Have you picked up anything random in the drugstore recently? I would love to know what products you are trying out?  


  1. Oh wow, I really love the look of the Sugar Crush hand gel. I am literally going to boots today to get some....sooo... I guess that makes me sad too! Really liking your blog.

    1. Hahaha!! It's okay! Thanks so much I've saved yours to read on the train to uni :) xxxx

  2. I really like the Bourjois CC cream but I managed to buy it in two shades to dark so I can only wear it when i'm super tanned.
