Haulin' - Fragrance Direct & Escentual

Pay day came, and now it is long gone and now I must wait until the next one (oops,) but I did manage to make a killer saving on some things I actually needed to replace...

First up from Escentual I re-purchased my fourth (!) bottle of the Vichy Purete Thermale Hydra-Perfecting Toner. I simply love it, it doesn't feel tight or dry out my skin. Perfecto! Secondly I picked up a new moisturiser from Avene. It's the Hydrance Optimale Rich Protective SPF 20. Let me just say, Hydrance is the right word. Oh dayumn! It's so hydrating, yet light. I'm pleased I got the 'Rich' version because the 'Light' might of been a tad too light. If you have combination skin you might want to try it out though! They also sent out a nail file, which is nice. I always like when companies add that little touch - it's just thoughtful!

So from Fragrance Direct I picked up A LOT of nail related paraphernalia, if you couldn't tell! I bought a cheap pair of nail scissors and they broke after the first week - not great, and when I saw that FD had a pretty large discount on Sally Hansen and Essie (£1.99 for a bottle of Essie? Not bad, right?) so I scooped up some much needed supplies. I'm looking forward to my back getting better, so I can actually bend down to do my feet a pretty pedicure.

A little note though; the colour for Waltz looks more lilac/greige on the website but it is a pure white - which isn't a bad thing, I've got plans for this one!

Have you got any deals shopping recently?



  1. The Vichy toner sounds lovely, I like a toner that's hydrating x

    1. It's pretty perfect after an exfoliating toner. It's really sorted out my skin - I used to use any old toner, and they'd usually be for combination skin - kind of wish I'd found it earlier. :)
