Boots Haul

I am a huge lover of drug-stores and could easily pass away time testing make-up samples, trying on perfumes and browsing the shelves for the latest hair products.

Earlier this week I took a visit to Boots and after scanning the beauty aisles, my basket soon started filling up with products and goodies which I just had to share with you.

First in my basket was the Rimmel Wake Me Up foundation. I have been hearing great reviews about this foundation and I love the idea that it can brighten up your skin making it more radiant and fresh looking (which is needed when your half-asleep in the mornings!).
I have only used this product once so far but from what i've seen, I think this might just be a regular in my make-up bag. It is medium to light coverage, easy to apply and leaves a dewy finish to the skin. Perfect!

Next I picked up Hair Xpertise Argon Oil which I have been dying to try for a long time. I was drawn to using Argon Oil as it is formulated to replenish dry and damaged hair. I try to look after my hair as much as I can as it is prone to dryness and split-ends after years of hi-lights, so I decided to take the plunge and buy this product in hope that it can restore my battered locks.

I am also in the process of growing my hair and if your hair is anything like mine (barely grows an inch for months) then you'll probably share the same enthusiasm as me when you see this product; Lee Stafford Miracle Hair Growth Shampoo and Conditioner. 

I first purchased these products a couple of months ago and loved them! It didn't make my hair grow miraculously over night unfortunately, but the condition of my hair had certainly improved as it became more stronger and fuller in appearance. So I have decided to buy these beauties again to help restore the condition of my hair.

As it was a 3 for 2 offer on haircare in Boots. I couldn't only stop at 2 products, so I also purchased Lee Stafford Hair Growth Leave-in Treatment to work alongside the shampoo and conditioner. 

This product is designed to be spayed onto the roots of your hair before drying which will go to work in restoring and stimulating hair growth throughout the day. 

I'm very excited to see if the Hair Growth collection will work it's magic and I shall let you know how I get on with the Lee Stafford range and the results I get in a couple of weeks time.

Lastly, I purchased Batise Dry Shampoo XXL. Dry shampoo is amazing but I find I can sometimes go a bit crazy when applying it to try and 'plump' up my hair, making it look cakey and powdery (not a good look). So when I saw this product I just had to give it a go. My hair is rather fine and this product is great for adding extra 'oomph' to the roots, either after washing it or day-old hair. It smells really fruity and you only need a quick spray of this product to get volume and freshness. 

So there we have it, my drug-store haul! I would love to know if you have used any of these products? What's your favourite drug-store buys?


  1. I love all of those things! ♥ I haven't used any of them, but I'd sure love to try!!

    Love, Petush

    my last blogpost is also about a haul, not drugstore products, but clothing.

  2. I recently purchased the Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment and I'm pretty happy with it so I might try the Lee Stafford Miracle Hair Growth Shampoo and Conditioner next. Love this post!


  3. nice haul :) the Lee Stafford growth treatment works better than the shampoo/conditioner in my opinion, i always buy 3 when its on offer in Boots (3 for 2) it's helped my hair grow so fast, I made a huge mistake getting hair extensions put in a couple of year ago, they were that bad I had to cut them out!!! my hair was sooo short and I had bald patches but using this treatment, moroccanoil treatment and using barely any heat on my hair has made my hair grow back to the length it was and made it abit thicker xxx


I love chatting to new people so please feel free to leave a comment.

Also don't forget to leave the name of your blog, i'd love to have a look.

Talk to you soon, Lexi x
