Beauty Haul | Summer Ready Offers

I don't know how it happens. I go onto the Superdrug website for one thing and end up with a big box full arriving at my door a few days later. This time I blame a hyped up product being back in stock, a half price bargain and curiosity. That's the thing about Superdrug, you barely ever pay full price on everything, delivery is free and it reaches you within a few days. It's just far too tempting.

So lets begin with the hyped up product, the thing that was actually in stock for the first time in I don't know how long - UTan Tan Gummies. I loved the UTan and Tone Face Cream and said even then that I was so intrigued by the Raspberry Flavour Gummies, the first edible tan supplement, which are meant to allow direct absorption and create a better tan in the sun or a glow without sun exposure?! The whole thing sounds a bit mad and it's obviously been popular. Lots of the reviews are positive, with people showing a difference in their skin tone and then most of the reviews that are poor or 1 star are simply because the gummies are out of stock again. The Patent Pending product seems quite scientific with lots of ingredients being mentioned in the description like beta-carotene, lycopene, zeaxanthin and copper. This might be an absolute waste of £16.99 but there's only one way to find out really. 

Onto my half price bargain. The Scholl Express Pedi Diamond Pro is usually £39.99 and I couldn't justify spending that much on an electrical that I wouldn't be using loads and loads. However, when it was reduced down to £19.99 I was a little more torn. Other than a foot cream that I use mostly in the Winter and painting my toenails, I really don't look after my feet properly. I wear flip flops most days of the Summer and that can leave my heels dry and not pretty looking. I've tried a foot file but without some proper effort that didn't make much difference. I'm ever hopeful that this is going to transform my feet. This worked out cheaper than buying the Superdrug own brand foot file so that helped make my decision. 
My next purchase was part of my curiosity. I've tried a couple of teatox/detox brands and though they're quite controversial I like to have one or two every so often to reenergise and reduce bloating. I'd never really heard of the brand Some Body but they had a bit of money off their Some Body Teatox Day and Night 14 day box and rather than repurchase Bootea I gave the Superdrug Exclusive brand a go. I've tried one of the night-time tea bags so far it and it didn't taste too bad, gave me a good nights sleep and improved my digestion a little bit. I'm looking forward to trying the day time one soon.

I'm starting to wonder if I've ever made an order on the Superdrug website without buying some dry shampoo! Batiste was better than half price and it's always better to have a back up than waking up before work, trying to sort out your 2nd or 3rd day hair situation to find out you've got no dry shampoo. I quite like the scent of the Batiste Pink Pineapple Dry Shampoo for Summer time and rather than buying one of the mammoth bottles I got a 200ml bottle so that I can take this away on my honeymoon and for weekends away in Edinburgh. A dressing table essential and costs less than £1.50.

Obviously my hair can't survive on dry shampoo alone and my current stash of shampoo is starting to dwindle away. Lots of people have been talking about the new L'Oreal Elvive Dream Lengths range so I bought the L'Oreal Elvive Dream Lengths Restoring Shampoo for long, damaged hair. It's meant to protect your hair against breakages and reduct the appearance of split ends with the help of keratin, vitamins and Castor Oil. It's had rave reviews all over the internet and with my long, bleached hair I fit the bill quite well. This 400ml bottle is meant to be £4.99 but good old Superdrug had it on offer.
I wasn't going to buy the Dream Lengths shampoo without buying the L'Oreal Elvive Dream Lengths Detangling Conditioner. They were 2 for £6 and like most brands they say they work best when used together. Again it's got the Keratin, Vitamins and Castor Oil and is meant to reduce breakage by up to 50%. A few people have said the Dream Lengths range has left their hair feeling a bit greasy after using it for a while so I'll be keeping an eye on that and mixing it up with other products, but I'm hopeful it can help treat my long, heat processed hair.

Finally the reason I actually went onto the Superdrug website in the first place. I wanted to buy a new blemish product as my tea tree oil stick had run out and just on cue a huge mountain started growing on my chin. Witch products were a third off so I bought the Witch Blemish Stick. I've used this before when I was about 16. It does the job and isn't too drying on my dehydrated skin.
