London part 3 - the mega haul and giveaway

I've popped all my purchases from my London day out into one big haul. There's quite a lot to show you, so I'll do as little talking as possible! Further down the page, you can also win a little Vitality Show goody bag that I've put together, so make sure to enter :)

First up are my Boots (we popped in quickly to check out the 3 for 2 offers) and John Bell & Croyden purchases. I bought:

makeup and nail polish

Sinful Colors nail polish in 920 and 830. This is a US brand I've never heard of before but these were only £1.99 each - bargain!
Revlon polish - 260 Girly - this looks to be a dupe for the Illamasqua speckle polishes
Revlon Baby Stick - pink passion - these are brand new so I couldn't resist picking one up!
Max Factor Colour Elixir giant stick pen - vibrant pink
Comvita manuka honey lozenges - I'm hoping these will help with my winter sore throat
John Bell & Croyden lemon and basil bath salts
Korres lip butter stick - I love the Korres lip butters, but don't like sticking my fingers in the pot, so this is perfect. 

Next stop Vitality Show! I've split this out into my actual pruchases, and then taken some pictures of all the goodies I got as part of magazine goody bags or just freebies wandering around.

What I bought:

Perfectil skin, hair and nails vitamins - these were on special at £5 for 30
Peppersmith mints - £1 each
Sukin hydrating mist toner - £7. I wanted to try something from Sukin for ages, and this was lovely and refreshing. 
Niki's Organic Balms original balm -£4.99. We got to have a chat with the lovely Niki who makes these balms and after testing a few, I decided I liked the original smell the best so bought a mini pot. 
Green People scent free cleanser - All of the Green People products had 20% off so I decided to stock up and get a back up of my cleanser for just over £15. 
Nakd cocoa orange bars x 6 - I love these natural snack bars. They normally retail about about 80p each but were on offer for 2 for £1. I'm regretting not buying more!

Onto the goodies... I've separated them out into food, supplements and skincare/cosmetics. 

The supplements/added extras:

The skincare/cosmetics:

The food and drink:

Phew! This little lot is going to keep me going for a while!

  29. The Korres lip butter sticks will not disappoint you- the product feels different to the pots but is just as lovely (and so easy to use!) the product that is my favourite from your haul is the Revlon polish- I love the speckled nail effect and the illamasqua ones are just too pricey so of you've found an affordable dupe then that's awesome!

    Your giveaway looks fantastic too! Would be so excited to try the dhc cleaning oil( as well as everything else, haha) :)


  30. Thanks for all your lovely comments! This giveaway is now closed, and i'll be contacting the winner very soon :) xx
