Boots Panic Buying


You may have seen some tweets the past week or so celebrating the fact that I have a new job…hurrah!

I am so excited to start my new job in a toxicology lab and have been busy buying a new wardrobe now that I can wear my own clothes and not a standard uniform.

I have also, as you can imagine, been putting my discount to good use and buying my final few items with it as after I’ve left Boots i will be rid of temptation and therefore will not be buying anything for 6 months….right??!

I say few….this is what I’ve racked up so far.


I’m embarrassed, horrified and somewhat proud.

I’ve picked up essentials like moisturiser and bobbles, and also brushes and eye make up remover with the No7 vouchers. Some summery nail polishes did not escape my notice particularly the £1.99 Sinful Colours ones, and obviously some must have make up products.

Obviously I haven’t used much of it yet but I wanted to let you know about a few deals I’ve picked up and what’s looking good!

Revlon have a 3 for 2 deal on at the moment which means I’ve picked up my favourite primer, some skin highlights, a new concealer and my first ever BB cream:


So looking forward to trying out the new Revlon items!

Next up I picked up some items from Rimmel:


They have a deal on at the moment when you spend £10 you get a free Scandaleyes mascara which I’ve used before and really liked.
I think you can always use powder and I’ve been looking to get myself a matt bronzer for a while so picked these three up to compare them to more expensive powders and bronzers I already have.

Bourjois also have a similar deal on where if you spend £12 you get a free round blush pot.

I didn’t plan on getting two of these deals but after picking up one I couldn’t help myself!


For the first set I picked up a Volumizer mascara that I’d heard good things about, and of course the blogger fave nail varnish removal pot which has been raved about for glitter polishes.

I then picked up the Healthy Mix Serum foundation after a recommendation for my dry skin and also the infamous Bronzing Powder.


These blushes both look absolutely gorgeous.
I picked up one that has a slight shimmer and reminds me of my favourite Coralista, and also a slightly darker matt blush.


I’ve heard that Bourjois are bringing out some new Cream Blushes which is massively exciting!

I love cream blushes and if these powder ones are anything to go by the cream ones will be super easy to blend and have fantastic colouring.
They’ve already launched in Selfridges and online (3rd of May) and you can get them from Boots on the 15th of May.

There will be four colours and by the looks of things 01 and 02 look stunning for paler people like me and M!

Priced at £7.99 a pop I will certainly be looking at the Cream Blushes when they get into my Boots store 🙂

What do you think of my panic buying so far? Over the top or justified??
What would you buy if you had a discount card for Boots?

Will you be checking out the new Bourjois Cream Blushes??

    Holy moly! What an awesome buy! I wish they sold Bourjois products in the US.
