End of Exams Haul!!!

Hello all!

This post is long overdue but the other day I went on a bit of a shopping spree as my treat for finishing my Uni exams. It was a very successful day, but I didn't buy as much as originally thought. Which is good thing in regards to my bank account!

Kit Cosmetics

Soap & Glory Mist You Madly - This was a bit of an impulse buy because it smells amazing! I thought it would be a good everyday scent. As I'm writing this blog post right now, I can't stop smelling it, I just can't get over how much I love it!

Soap & Glory Heel Genius - Another impulse buy, my feet can get a bit dry during the summer so I thought I would give this a go. I haven't tried it out as of yet but I'm excited to try it.

Origins Samples - I originally went into Kit to check out the range of Origin products. But when I saw them all I was a bit overwhelmed by the range of products. One member of staff was very helpful and picked out 4 things I should try. I have oily-combination skin, that is sensitive and is prone to breakouts. She gave me the Origins Modern Frictions Gentle Dermabrasion, Origins Never a Dull Moment Cleanser, Origins Ginzing Moisturiser and Origins Ginzing Eye Cream. I did use the eye cream last night, and under my eyes does feel a little softer but obviously no other difference but so far so good!


Real Techniques Expert Face Brush - Everyone has been raving about these brushes so I'd thought I'd jump on the bandwagon. I haven't had an opportunity to use it yet but it feels super soft. So I'm very excited to give this a go!

Biore Steam Activated Cleanser - This is my second bottle of this stuff. My mum got a free bottle with a magazine once and gave it to me, and then I forgot about it for a while. I rediscovered it about 2 months ago and it is one of the best things! They changed the packaging so it took me a while to realise it and find it. When you use this in the shower, the beads  are activated by the steam to help cleanse your face. The feeling you get when you wash it off is amazing, your face feels so fresh!

Australis Makeup Finishing Spritz - I've never used a makeup finishing spray so I wanted to get one to see if it would make a difference. I've heard a few people talk about it so I thought why not get it to try it out.


I just wanted to say that this was my first time buying things from Lush so I was very excited to try everything out! Thank you Chelsie for introducing me to this little slice of heaven!

Herbalism Cleanser - I've been using this for the past few mornings and it feels so good on the skin. the almond in it is a gentle exfoliator on the skin that isn't too rough. I would have to say the smell for me though is a bit off putting.

Happy Hippy Shower Gel - Lots of people love this one so I'd thought I'd give it a go. It smells fruity and I'm going to take it away with me to Melbourne because the small size is perfect.

Mint Julips Lip Scrub - My lips can get very dry and flaky so someone recommended me to try these out. I'm not a huge fan of mint but I thought this would be perfect for using after I brush my teeth to keep the minty fresh breath. 

Love Lettuce Face Mask - I wanted to get the Cupcake one but they had none left (sad face). So the next best one for my skin seemed to be this one. I used it about an hour ago and my skin feels softer which is a good sign!

Grease Lightening - I tend to get lots of breakouts on my face and doctors have recommended different medical solutions but they all make my skin feel tight. I've been using this for 3 days now and no major differences, though the blemishes look less red and no tight feeling after application (YAY!).

Golden Wonder Bath Bomb - I haven't taken a bath in forever but once I saw these bath bombs, they make me want to get back into taking the occasional bath!


Prep + Prime BB Cream SP35  in Light Plus - Just the thought of foundations and the right colour for your skin sends me into major confusion! Myer had a 1 day offer of 10% almost all cosmetics, so I took this opportunity to get a foundation from MAC. I asked one of the ladies about what was the best type of foundation for my skin in the summer and she recommended this. I'm very excited to try this out!


Revlon Photoready Perfecting Primer - I use Napoleon Perdis' Auto Pilot Primer but it is starting to run out. I got it from my Mum and the thought of having to fork out money for a new one scared me a little. So I'm on a mission to find a new one that is as good as that but with a smaller price tag. I've heard good things about this one so I'm hoping it will be as good! Also, Revlon had a deal if you spent more than $15 you got a free powder brush so why not!


I love Sportsgirl, just putting it out there!

Stripy Dress - I have been looking at this dress for a while but when I saw it on sale I had a bit of a party on the inside and quickly picked it up! I love stripes and it fits amazingly!

Sportsgirl Pout About It Lip Colour in Almost Famous - Sportsgirl do amazing lipsticks for a good price. I'm a huge fan of red but I was wanting a red that had more orange tones in it. This also has a matte finish which I love. 

This was a long post that was long overdue but now it's here! Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed buying it!
