Pay Day Haul: Westfield London

Friday was the best day ever. It was pay day, it was pub lunch day, and it was shopping day!

As some of you may know, I am (attempting) to go on a spending ban for 2 months starting on the 5th of May, so I thought I would treat myself to a final splurge. And I brought the lovely Saskia with me so we could talk about make-up and skin care for hours without anyone saying 'I can't believe you like that stuff'.


The first stop was Boots, where I got myself two Real Techniques brushes to go with my stippling brush. I got Blush Brush (£9.99) and Shading Brush (£7.99) so I could freely mix and match face and eye looks.  

Then I bought a new can of my current go-to skin care product - La Roche-Posay Thermal Spring Water (£7.50). This does wonders to moisturise the skin and is really refreshing to spray onto your face before going to bed or in the morning to wake you up.


Then we went to Debenhams, where Saskia dragged me to the Clarins counter so I could buy a Pure Melt Cleansing Gel. But of course I ended up buying more than that - especially as there was a gift with purchase promotion going on, plus a 10% discount.

If you bought two full-size products, including one skin care product, you got a large beauty bag and four mini skin care products to go with it. And if you bought three full-size products, you also got a smaller bag with body care bits and bobs.

So after being sold by several pitches and Saskia's love for the products, I bought a Pure Melt Cleansing Gel (£17.55) and a Face Treatment Oil (£27) (Lotus - for oily/combination skin), and Saskia got a Pure Melt Cleansing Gel so we could step up to the next gift.

I used the cleanser the night I bought it and I am definitely impressed. The marula oil is nourishing and the gel it's so soft and warming. It's like a skin care special treat. 

Then we have gift one - four products and a large Clarins by John Rocha beauty bag. I chose the Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch, Hand and Nail Treatment Cream, One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser and Super Restorative Night Wear cream. 

Gift two included a Moisture-Rich Body Lotion and a Tonic Bath & Shower Concentrate.

I think you'll agree that's pretty damn amazing!


Then I was totally tempted by the Model's Own bottle shop offer of 6 polishes for £20. Saskia and I got 3 polishes each and I opted for Luis Lemon (Ice Neon), Hedonist (Hed Kandi) and Banana Split (Fruit Pastel), which only cost me £10.
