Boxing Day Buys


The festive season may be over, but it just keeps on giving in my household. Over the past week I've been welcomed home with a mound of deliveries - my boxing day buys! Gone are the days I would go into town on boxing day and spend my Christmas money. Boxing Day is all about family, with a cheeky bit of online shopping of course. I bought a ton of skincare and a few other things in the boxing day sales this year.

The first two things I bought were the Origins GinZing moisturiser and cleanser. I've used the GinZing Moisturiser for a couple of years and I love how refreshing and light it feels. It smells absolutely delicious and I've been missing it the past month or two. I picked it up for just £20 on the Origins website. I also picked up the cleanser to go with it. I don't know why I have never tried the Origins GinZing Cleanser before. I knew I would love it, if it was anything like the moisturiser. This is a lovely scrub type moisturiser, it's not at all drying like some scrubs. It feels so creamy and luxurious when using it, my skin definitely feels fresh and new after. This is the perfect wake me up cleanser and moisturiser duo in the morning.

The next thing I bought was the Pixi Glow Tonic. I've been meaning to try this for the longest time! I bought a 100ml bottle for £10. Everyone raves that this just does wonders to your skin. I can't wait to give this a go and see how much a toner can really do. I really loved the Pixi and Caroline Hirons Double Cleanser so I can't wait to try more from the Pixi range.

I thought I was done buying skincare, until a girl tweeted about a crazy sale Superdrug were having and she swore by the Superdrug skincare. So I couldn't help but make the most of the crazy prices. I got a ton of products from the Naturally Radiant range for about £2 or £3 each, madness! I bought the Hot Cloth Cleanser - a dupe for the Liz Earl cleanser. It even comes with a muslin cloth and cost me under £3! I couldn't afford not to buy it. I've used the cleanser once and it feels lovely, it's very similar to Liz Earle, it has that same spa like scent. I also bought the Glycolic Tonic as well as the Glycolic Acid Pads. They both feel so lovely on this skin, I really look forward to this step in my skincare routine. I will do a proper review on the Superdrug range but I also picked up two moisturisers. The 2 in 1 Moisturiser & Serum, I really wanted to try this because I don't usually use a serum! The other moisturiser I picked up from the range was the Brightening Day Cream for normal to combination skin. I haven't used this yet, but I've been very impressed with the rest of the range. The last thing I bought was the Brightening Eye Cream. I've been so bad at using eye cream at the moment. I'm so glad I have found a very affordable skin care range that literally makes me feel like I've been to the spa! I'm going to use this range in rotation with my higher end products.

I also treated myself to some new makeup brushes over the festive period. I had £24 on my Boots card and luckily Boots had a deal on the Obsession Ultimate Marble Brush Set for £24, it was fate! I've wanted to try these tilted kind of brushes for the longest time and these were on such an amazing deal I couldn't not! I haven't tried them properly yet but I will pop a review up soon. The set comes with a couple face brushes, eye brushes, a blending sponge, a silicone sponge as well as a brush cleanser! I've never even tried using a sponge before let alone a silicone sponge, so I'm very excited about this set. Of course they look gorgeous too, thanks to the marble finish. They're still on sale online at boots for £24, reduced from £60!

The last thing I picked up was a repurchase, MAC Mineralise Skinfinish Natural. I love this finishing powder so much but had hit pan badly on my old one. I only really used this for special occasions since I hit pan, so I'm so happy I've bought a back up. I bought the same light shade but the numbers are different and the shade looks a tiny bit different, I hope it still suits me! I bought this with a gift card I received for Christmas - I just love being able to shop and not spend money hehe!

As you can tell my Boxing day buys consists of a ton of skincare. I'm willing to try anything to get clear and radiant skin this year.

Did you pick up any treats in the Boxing day sales beauties?
