October Haul: Beauty

Hiya guys, 

I've been shopping, quite a bit, during the month of October and I'll be shopping a whole lot more once I get to York but here is my hail for this month. 

I hope you enjoy! 


 Soap and Glory's Pulp Friction Body Scrub is literally my all time favourite body scrub. It smells amazing, it's not as cheap as I'd like it but it's close enough! It feels thick enough to use as a body masque and has enough grit to buff away the dead skin. This was £8 from Boots and was on 3 for 2. 

 I like The Body Shop deodorants so when I seen this in the sale I snapped it up. It is the Deo Dry and it was £1.25 and the refill was £1

 My younger sister and I love this shower gel from The Body Shop because it smells amazing, like freshly picked Granny Smiths, It also leaves your skin feeling really clean. This 250ml bottle was on sale for £2 from £4.

This is the 'My Fierce Violets' Palette from Lauren Luke who is quite a famous Youtuber. I was very surprised to see this palette in TKMaxx (TJMaxx for all you Americans!)  It was £7.99 and it came with a lipgloss and the mirror has a message from Lauren written on it. I'm not sure if all of them come with a message but this one does! If you live near the MetroCentre, go grab one!

 Again from TKMaxx (MetroCentre) I found this which is my all time best beauty bargain, ever! It's the Too Faced "Insurance Policy" palette and a 11g tube of Too Faced Shadow Insurance. This, wait for it, was £7.99. Yes, that is all! The RRP for this set is £38. Go to your nearest TKMaxx and hunt! The colour pigmentation is AMAZING!

 These tweezers are my favourite tweezers to use, however, I lost my pair I was using and had to buy another pair as I felt lost without them. They are the Mad Plucker tweezers and were £2.99 from TKMaxx.

 These nail paints are by Barry M and they were on a special offer. I purchased Diamond Glitter and Spring Green and got Web Effects 239 FREE! I love a good freebie. I thought for Halloween the green with the orange web over the top would look amazing. I am yet to test this theory! They retail for £2.99, however the web effect retails at £3.99.

 This is Diamond Glitter, one coat on a bare nail. 

 This is Spring Green, one coat, over a bare nail.

 Orange Web Effect, however it didn't break down :\ 

 I love the Coconut range from The Body Shop and this little travel sized Milk Body Lotion was a bargain at £4.

This lip balm from The Body Shop's Chocomainia range was £4 but my Fianc√© kindly treated me to this!  

 The Body Shop throughout October had a little sale on their Body Butters. They were half price. £6.50 (I think) They're usually quite expensive but I thought as it's on special I'd treat myself. I love this scent so much!

 This was a total impulse buy from Morrisons. It was on offer at £1.63 and I thought why not get it. It's always good to look after your gums. 

 I picked this little atomiser up from an Avon Party that I went to for £1.50. The scent is really sweet and girlie and the packaging reminds me of winter!

 This was another Avon purchase and this is the Moroccan Agran Oil Hair Mask. This was on offer for £3.  I've used this already and it leaves your hair really conditioned. 

 This is the Glam Eyes HD eye shadow from Rimmel. I got this at a cheap make up stall in town for £1.99.

 This is a Rimmel 3-in-1 blusher. It has 3 beautiful tones of pink, leaving your cheeks with a fresh flush of colour. This is again from the small stall in my city centre and cost £1.99

 My final purchase from the small make up stall is this Maybelline lip gloss. It is a cream gloss which means the texture is really creamy and feels really good on the lips. The colour pay off is pretty good as well and the colour is like a your lips but better colour. This again was £1.99.

 When I went into Boots I was looking at purchasing a shower gel from Philosophy as I have been eyeing them up for absolutely ages. However the £14 price tag put me off. I found this Gingerbread shower gel by Beauticology in the Christmas gift section for £4.

 Earlier in the month, Boots had a 3 for £5 offer on Simple Skincare wipes and being an avid fan, I swooped  into the store and picked up 3 packs. 

 Another Avon product, this time from the kids range. I got this to see if it would work for detangling my hair as it is the most horrible hair for tangling. It does work! :) It cost me £1.50 on special offer.

My sister bought me this at the beginning of the month when we were starting to get excited for the Nicki Minaj concert happening in 3 days! It is the MAC Nicki Lipglass and it was £12.50

I hope you have enjoyed this post!
