& this is just a blog

Monday, 5 June 2017


Yesterday I had a body care clear out and sold off all my old toiletries at the car boot sale. The main objective to make space and make a bit of dollar. However like the true beauty junkie that I am, no sooner had I got rid of some, I had bought some replacements. And so the cycle continues...

I am a sucker for new products and cute packaging. If that wasn't enough already for me to smuggle these into my basket, the smell well and truly sealed the deal. I have to admit that I am that annoying customer that likes to smell everything before they buy it. It's a very important factor for me, I love strong, long lasting scented products. I'd like to mention that I am struggling heavily with hay fever at the moment, rendering my nose just about useless, BUT I could still smell these very well which is a brilliant sign. 

Enough waffling Kelsey, tell them what you bought! 

 Sanctuary has just released a new line called Being, to me its the trendy younger sister of Sanctuary. I feel the packaging and diverse scent range is aimed at more my age range (20's). I love that sanctuary have been playful with the packaging and yet at the same time retained its luxurious spa like reputation.  I picked up two body washes in the scents Chili Mango & Tonka Bean and Salted Caramel & Macadamia. Frankly I'm terrible at describing scents so what I will say is they smell really good, good enough to be experienced in person. So go sniff a bottle in your local boots. But just remember that I warned you, if you return home with the whole range it's not my fault. I chose these two body washes in particular because they looked very creamy and thick, whereas other scents  in the collection looked like they had a thinner gel like consistency. I used the Mango & Tonka body wash tonight, and I was very impressed. It has a lovely lasting smell, a creamy and thick consistency and most importantly left me feeling very clean and also moisturised. 

The range also included's Bath Bombs, Body Lotion, Body Mist, Body scrub, Body Butter, Bubble Bath, Hand Cream and canvas bag. Scents include, Cloudberry & Lychee, Hibiscus & Coconut,  Chilli Mango & Tonka bean, Salted Caramel & Macadamia Nut, Water Lotus & Pomelo. 

The second brand which is new to Boots is Miss Patisserie, who I have followed on Instagram for a while now. I was really stoked for her to see her range in Boots, it's always nice to see people doing well. Despite following for months I hadn't purchased anything from her site, mainly because I like to smell my products and therefore avoid buying them on line. Now I've finally wiffed them, I am truly gutted I waited this long to give them ago. I picked up two sugar scrubs, because I am obsessed with exfoliating. I love fruity smells and the water melon and mango scrubs smell good enough to eat. The watermelon one even looks like watermelon, but I honestly don't eat it. I tried the mango scrub in the shower tonight and my skin smells amazing and feels really nourished, and so they should these scrubs are packed with oils to replenish the skin. So please bare in mind if these are left to sit the oils will come to the top, so shaking the tub and stirring is a must. I really love these so far and am intrigued to try more scents out and different products.

Sugar Scrubs available in: Watermelon, Mango, Vanilla, Coconut, Lotus Flower, Peony & Pear.
Other products include, Bath Bombs, Bath Crumble, Coffee scrubs, Bath melt, Body Souffles.

A very successful haul, I can't wait to delve into the ranges further. PS both collections are on Buy one get one half price at the moment! What are you waiting for?
