Recent Purchases

It's been a while since I noted down what's been dropping through the letter box or thrown into a shopping basket so I thought I'd showcase a few goodies ordered and bought recently...
I picked up a fair amount from The Body Shop, including a re-purchase of the Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-Oil. I haven't even run out of my first bottle - but as you can't really tell how much is left in the bottle (unless you hold it up to a very bright light...) I thought I'd play it safe and stock up, as I love it so darn much.

Another staple and one I'm keeping for my upcoming flight; the Almond hand and nail cream. It smells gorgeous, absorbs well and keeps my hands soft and hydrated. What more can you need from a hand cream? Another couple of flight essentials; the Satsuma Hand Cleanse Gel - pretty obvious, but I don't want to be picking up any bugs so an anti-bac gel is essential. 

For facial hydration I've also picked up the Vitamin E Facial Mist - I've heard only good things so I'm hoping it will do it's job - as I can't stand taking glass bottles anyway (Caudalie Beauty Elixir... you're staying home, thank you!) I've also picked up the Vitamin C Energizing Face Spritz for my main hold luggage with all my other skincare - this is a great toner for perking up the complexion, perfect after one too many sangria's...

One last thing from The Body Shop and indeed the Vitamin E range (for now... it's proving to get along with my skin very nicely indeed!) the Vitamin E Moisture Serum. Since my stocks of the Avene serum is running low I thought I'd give this one a trial run and see which is better for hydration (and soothing properties too,) but of course I'll review it when I've had more of a chance to use it.

And of course as this is a quasi 'stocking up' for a holiday post - wet wipes were thrown into the basket. I used to use these Simple wipes often during my young(er) days after a night out and they never irritated my skin and got off a good deal of 'gunk' before I went in with a proper cleanser. Even though I can't abide using wet wipes/facial wipes anymore - for flights and if I have a supremely late night on holiday, these are my back up.

What goodies have you purchased recently?
