I know it’s been a while since the last post…
So I just came back from my graduation, which is in London. I met some lovely friends and visited some places. And of course, I did a little bit of shopping. This time, I really planned for my shoppings in order to spend less and get what I want!
So let’s get started!
The first place I shopped in London is The Body Shop.
They do a lot of lovely skin and makeup products. And they are cruelty-free! The most important thing before shopping in The Body Shop is to check out its website to get the latest offer. I got 40% off this time, which saves a lot budgets!
Things I bought:
The product contains Vitamin C and its main feature is not only brightening the skin but also peels off the dead skin and gives it more luminous and healthy look. I tried it last night. It is quite refreshing and makes the skin feeling softer! It is a gel type kind of exfoliator instead of the salty ones. I prefer the gel ones as it is more gentle and doesn’t create redness on the skin.
I love Body Shop lip cream! I’ve been using the shade Mauritius Dahlia every day for winter. It lasts well on the lip. I wouldn’t say it lasts for a whole day but at least it doesn’t bother me eat or drink! So this time I got another one for spring ( on the left ). It has very high creamy colour and it is matte as well. It gives the velvet touch of finishing. Plus, after the discount, it’s only £3.6! Who doesn’t love it?
Then I went into Boots, the one at Picadilly Circus. I think it is the biggest Boots store in London! I can literally spend an afternoon there.
I pop into the NYX stand straight away. As there are only 2 or 3 stands in London. Then I got another lip cream (on the right). Shopping for lipsticks is one of the toughest jobs for me. And I totally forgot I bought one already in the body shop. when I try on my hand, I found the colours are so similar!
It is very pigmented as well. However, I found it difficult to remove it, which I will have to remove it 2 times or more.
I’ve been recommended to buy this hairbrush by friends and finally got them! I read the ad before that it can detangle the hair, and increases the shine. So I bought 2. The big one is for brushing hair when it’s wet, and the other one is portable, which comes with a cover protects the teeth. I found it really helps with the frizzy hair and makes it smoother.

The next thing I cannot miss in London is Jo Malone perfume!
This time I bought Wild Bluebell in 30ml.
One of Jo Malone iconic flavour! The smell that infuses woodland with bluebell. It is just an ideal scent to go with every day.
I thought that was it for shopping in Jo Malone.
However, on my way back to the airport, I found it’s 20% off on Jo Malone (because of the tax-free) I might look around a little.
This French Lime Blossom reminds me of a place that I used to love so much! The subtle floral smell just so suitable for spring! So I got the 100ml one.
I went to MAC pro store the other day- the one in Covent Garden. By using Mac Pro card, 35% off can be applied in any products. (The discount differs by country. In Taiwan, for example, is 20% off, and the USA is 40% off.)
I got a lipstick and a strobe cream.
I’ve heard of this product before but have never tried it. Since I am running out of my Smashbox primer, I am getting this to replace it. The cream luminizes the skin. It is very useful when using it with a matte foundation. And it suddenly boosts the skin to prevent the look of tiredness.
The other lip product I bought. As I said previously, “Shopping for lipsticks is one of the toughest jobs for me.” These 3 lip products are so similar. The colour is so “spring” that I cannot resist!
The last product I got is a mascara from Estee Lauder.
I’ve been using Estee Lauder mascara for a while and is running out of it. And it’s time to try a new one. So I’ve picked up the waterproof one. I haven’t
So I’ve picked up the waterproof one. I haven’t tried on yet. However, I checked the review on the website and is highly recommended. So I am looking forward to it!
Among all the products, what’s your favourite?
