Drugstore Haul 2013

Hello, I'm Claire I have a serious shopping addiction! Yep, I may have handed over my debit card again, what can I say it was burning a hole in my pocket.

Drugstore Haul
China Glaze Nail Polish Haul
Avene Thermal Spring Water £6.50
As a devote of the Caudalie Beauty Elixir, I didn't think I would ever want to try a new toner, but curiosity caught the cat, or rather me and I had to pick up this little spray. It's supposed to be really good for soothing the skin and reducing redness and irritation. Only time will tell with a product like this, but I'm very intrigued.

Bourjois Bronzing Primer £9.99
This is a recent release from Bourjois new bronzing line, I'm not normally a fan their products, I think they have been quite mediocre in the past, but I swatched this product in boots and it looked quite nice. It's supposed to be a dupe for Chanel's Tan De Soleil, so I will let you know what I think.

Bourjois Paris So Laque Glossy Nail Enamel in Adora Bleu £5.99
Ok fess up time, the only reason I picked up this nail polish was to get the free nail art, I though you could buy it separately, but you had to buy two Bourjois products. You can never have too many baby blue nail polishes though can you haha.

Bourjois Nail Art (Free)
So excited to try these, in particular the bird decals, I have a nail idea in mind for those, stay tuned!

China Glaze Nail Polishes in £5.90 Each 
Highlight Of My Summer
Heat Index
Too Yacht To Handle
That Is Shore Bright

Do I even need to explain why I bought more nail polish? No I didn't think so lol.

 Let me know what you've picked up recently, anything interesting. Also let me know your opinions of the Avene Thermal Spring Water, how does it compare to the Beauty Elixir?

XOXO Claire


  1. Ooh! Great haul!
    I like the Avene Thermal Water to give my skin a bit of a moisture boost before I apply foundation, and Highlight of my Summer is so gorgeous!

    1. Thank you, I'm excited to see how it compares to my Beauty Elixir :-)

  2. I love China Glaze! Lovely colours!


    1. Thank you, I might have a slight addiction haha :)

  3. I love the Avène Thermal Water...especially in summer I always carry it around in my handbag! Very refreshing! :)

    1. Oooh good thinking, I might have to pick up a mini one and do the same haha :-)

  4. Interested to see how the nail art turns out!

    1. Awww such a shame, I'm sure you will be able to find it online, they might sell it on ASOS.com :-)

  6. Awesome drugstore haul Ms. Claire! :) I love the colors of these china glaze nail polishes!

  7. the china glaze polishes are gorgeous colours (and you're right - a girl can never have too many nail polishes!)

    1. Aren't they, I think it's perfectly fine to have multiples of the same colour. For example you can never have too many mint nail polishes, can you. haha :-)


Thank you so much for stopping by, let me know your thoughts on this post by leaving a comment, they really do mean the world to me!
