Bargain Haul - Savers

Hi Ladies,

Hope you're all doing well, i've been shopping again, eeek i'm so addicted but I went to town today and my aim was too do a bit of christmas shopping and I did do that but then I ended up in savers and managed to buy a fair few items. I've never been in savers before really, which is probably why I got so excited over the shop and how blooming cheap it's prices are and picked up as much stuff as I did. I'm one of those people who can't resist a bargain, especially if I know that boots or super drug would offer these beauty goodies at substantially more. Anyway let's get on to the haul, I ramble way too much for my own good. You can see below everything I brought from savers, and I really did save an awful lot of money (excuse the rubbish pun!) I picked up two things from the 'Beauty Parlour', four things from Rimmel, 6 packs of face wipes, Kleenex facial cloths and some fake nails.


Beauty Parlour


The first thing I picked up was these two products from the Beauty Parlour, I don't really think i've ever tried anything from this brand but they instantly caught my eye because they have very cute packaging, i'm not sure if they're kind of a cheaper version of Soap and Glory? Anyway the packaging was lovely and the products were lovely and sounded really interesting so I thought i'd pick those up and give them ago. The first product I got was the T-zone oil control mattifying moisturiser, this I think is basically a long winded way of saying it's a primer for the t-zone which is meant to keep it matte throughout the day. I think this product was £1.99 and you get 100ml of product so I thought I would give it ago and see if it works. I love the Rimmel Primer that I repurchased in this haul but if I run out or for oilier days I can see this being quite a good alternative. I haven't tried it so I can't tell you if it's any good or not but I used it on my hand and it felt like a fairly good consistency. The second product I purchased was a basic face scrub, I am loving anything skincare related at the moment so I decided to pick this up to help me exfoliate my skin especially as the weather gets colder and I need to try and deal with dry area's creeping up on my face, this was £1.50 so another massive bargain! I'm hoping these products will be really good, i'll report back after using them for a bit and we'll see!


Rimmel 


The next set of products I purchased were four Rimmel Products that I absolutely love, I was going to pick all of these products up at Boots anyway but they're half the price in Savers for some reason. Making the foundation, primer, powder and concealer all under a fiver! Massive bargain. I won't go on about these products too much, I have already done a review of the Rimmel Wake me up foundation and the Rimmel Fix Pro Primer which is one of my favourite products ever - here. I think Rimmel have become my favourite drugstore brand of makeup, their products are amazing and the four products that I brought are my four essentials to get a flawless face. I love love love them and the price that they are in savers makes these products even better. (Let me know in the comment box if you would like to see some more information about the powder and concealer by the way, because I don't mind doing that for you guys at all!)

Face Wipes


The next set of products I brought from Savers was 6 packs of 30 face wipes, they cost me £2.00 for all of them and are going to last me for bloody ages. I always keep a pack of face wipes for lazy days or for removing makeup if it all goes wrong and I was sick of paying 3 or 4 pound from my local supermarket so thought these would be good. 

Fake Nails


The next thing I brought were these fake nails, i'm not sure how i'm feeling about them at the moment, they were £1.00 so I can't really complain and I only really brought them so that I could start doing more nail varnish swatches for my blog, so we'll see!

Palmers Cocoa Butter


Next I brought 2 mini Palmers Cocoa Butter bottles, oh my god, I think this product deserves a full review on my blog at some point. It is my favourite moisturiser in the whole entire world, it smells amazing, leaves your skin feeling like nothing else and is just a really bloomin' good product. I already have a full-size of this product but thought i'd get some mini's so that they'd be the perfect size for my handbag and on the go. I can't explain how amazing this is or how lush it smells!

Kleenex Facial Cloths



The last thing I brought were these Kleenex Facial Cloths, the reason I brought these were completely random, I was going to buy some more of the cheap cloths because I use these to apply my toner to my face before bed and these were only £1.00 for like 50 so I thought I may as well pick these ones up instead and see how they were. In actual fact, although it sounds silly I really love these, I find them so much nicer than the cheap cloths I normally use on my face and these absorb less product meaning i'm not wasting my toner so much, they distribute the product more evenly on my skin as well and they are so much softer and less 'scratchy' so although you get less for the same price I would be more than happy to buy these again! 

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed my bargain haul!
Found any bargains lately?
Lots of love

    I'm always really scared and cynical about drugstore makeup but I think I might try out the rimmel primer as I've heard great things about that too, about to check out your review for it now :)

    Great blog btw, really enjoying it!

  27. Really good post I think I would like to try that Beauty parlor brand I've never heard of it before but it does look like it's a cheaper option to Soap & Glory! I don't have a Savers anywhere near me I had never actually heard it before until this post! :) xxx
