Friday Treat: Superdrug random bits

So it’s week two of my Friday treat series that I decided to start (as of last Friday). This week’s treats aren’t exactly as exciting as last week’s nail varnish treats, but still – some of the weeks will be more exciting than others!

I decided to head to Superdrug for a browse, to see what caught my eye. First thing that did was the new foundation from Maybelline, their new mousse/foam foundation. I had a bit of a play with the testers to see which shade I’d be, and I really just don’t get it – of the shades I tried most of them seemed pretty much nothing. Just foam, and not even tinted foam. I tried one of the darker shades, just to see if that was any difference and it was slightly tinted but from rubbing into the back of my hand there was absolutely zero coverage…. I don’t really get it. Of course, this is just having a play with a couple of the testers in the shop, but I’ll definitely be waiting to read some proper reviews before I consider picking this one up.

The glamorous life I lead…

So after that I browsed the make-up a bit and nothing really jumped out at me, so headed to the other bits. Eventually I decided I needed a new shower puff thingy and a shower cap for the days where I don’t want to wash my hair (I’m trying to break my current addiction to washing my hair daily)…. see, told you it wasn’t exactly thrilling!

Then I also picked up the new hand cream version of the Garnier 7 Day Moisturiser. I love a good hand cream and have them stashed all over, so this one is to go on my desk at work as my previous one had pretty much run out. I’ve obviously only just tried it, but it feels good, rubs in easily, not greasy, smells nice… will see how I get on and if it’s worth a review after a couple of weeks.

Nom nom nom.

I also treated myself to a cheeky little packet of Starburst… see, not all just beauty treats!


Bought by me.

    for your hands, vitamin e oil and then cotton gloves over night works wonders, and during the day if you get chance vitamin e oil on your cuticules, you hands will look amazing really quickly.

    i love superdrug too, you never come out empty handed do you!
