Collective Haul | Boots, Superdrug, Primark, Feel Unique, New Look, and more!

Hey everyone!

If you haven't seen my last post, it was my nail polish collection which you can check out here :)
Today I have a collective haul for you and these are the products I have purchased over the last few months or so!
I apologise in advance for some of the lighting in and quality of some of the images!

Firstly, Superdrug had a 'buy one get one free' offer on selected Aussie hair products
The first product I purchased was the Aussie Miracle Moist Shampoo
I love this and have repurchased it multiple times
Definitely recommend this to anyone!
This retails for £4.49

I have wanted to try this for a while and the Miracle Moist Conditioner was out of stock
Recommend this to everyone as well, especially people who's hair is fairly heat damaged:)
This retails for £4.99

At a different time, Superdrug had a 3 for 2 deal across all cosmetics and the first product I purchased was the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in 01 Transparent
I had this a couple of years ago but had completely the wrong shade haha
Provides some coverage and sets makeup flawlessly and lasts the whole day:)
This retails for £3.99

Also on the offer I purchased the NYC Liquid Lipshine in Fashion Ave. Fuschia
I have seen this multiple times on Sineady Cady's YouTube channel and it is known to be a dupe for the MAC Lipglass in Loud & Lovely
Beautiful shade and it smells amazing but I am still yet to try this out:)
This retails for £2.99

Free on the deal I chose the Barry M Nail Paint in 302 Fuchsia
This is very similar to 272 Shocking Pink but it has more of a purple undertone
This retails for £2.99

Boots had an offer on Barry near Christmas where you get a free limited edition Barry M Nail Paint when you purchase 2 products
I purchased one Barry M Gelly Nail Paint for my friend and chose the 349 Rose Quartz Glitter Nail Paint for myself and received the Limited Edition Gold BLE 2012 (they also had a pink but I chose the gold)

I purchased another tube of the Simple Spotless Skin Anti-Blemish Moisturiser at a discounted price in Superdrug
I think this is my second or third tube of this and I recommend it to anyone
I will definitely continue to repurchase this:)
This retails for £4.99

Also around Christmas, I purchased a LUSH bubble beard bubble bar for my friend and a 100g pot of the LUSH Ultrabland Facial Cleanser
This cleanser is amazing and lasts for months:)
Again, I recommend this to anyone!
The 100g pot retails for £10.75

Mine have become a bit battered so I got the image from the New Look website
I purchased this pair New Look Black Ballet Pumps mainly for Sixth form but to wear with anything else at any other time as well
Very comfortable and don't rub my feet at all!
These retail for £7.99

Sorry for the bad quality image!
I purchased a bottle of the Carex Moisture Plus Hand Wash
I have mentioned this multiple times and I use this to clean my makeup brushes which leaves them very soft and clean
This retails in some shops for £1

I don't read magazines very often but I decided to pick up Glamour Magazine
I mainly picked this up because it came with a free gift card worth I think £3, £5 or £100
This was £1.50

The next product I purchased was the Boots Botanics Rosewater Toning Spritz
I have already owned a bottle of this and really liked it but I don't recall seeing any dramatic improvements although I will continue to use it:)
This retails for £3.49

I have wanted some cherry or burgundy jeans for a while and decided to pick up these New Look 32in Burgundy Supersoft Skinny Jeans
They are very comfortable and fit perfectly and definitely a bargain!
These retail for £19.99

I picked up two pieces of jewellery from Primark

The first is this Primark Necklace
It is a three-piece necklace and there is a pink gem/crystal, a silver triangle and a clear gem/crystal
This was £3

The other piece of jewellery was this Primark Ring
This was actually in the sale but I picked up the wrong size so it is a little too big
It is an aqua/turquoise flower with a gold band with some leave/flower detailing
This was £1

I also picked up this 3 pack of River Island Word Stud Earrings
There is a silver pair that say 'happy' and 'hope'
A gold pair that say 'dream' and 'wish'
Lastly, a rose gold pair that say 'love' and 'kiss' - the colour has come off these whilst wearing them and have turned a bit green:(
These retail for £4

I placed my first order on the Feel Unique website and purchased two items from the same brand that were both in the sale!

The first was the TIGI S-Factor Smooth Radiance Gift Set
This included a 200ml bottle of the Smoothing Shampoo, a 200ml bottle of the Smoothing Conditioner and a 200ml bottle of the Smoothing Lusterizer
These all smell like strawberries and cream and I wanted to try these after Zoe from Zoella280390 on YouTube mentioned them:)
This set was £20.47 and has a value of £39.95

I also got the 150ml tube of the TIGI S-Factor "Serious" Conditioner
This is a deep conditioner and has a slightly more minty scent than the other products I purchased although it still smells amazing!
It contains sunflower seed oil which is known to be very beneficial for the hair and it is absolutely amazing!
I definitely recommend this!
This was £9.90 but retails for £14.40

I got another bottle of the e.l.f. Makeup Mist & Set which I had just ran out of
I was looking at the Skindinavia setting spray but couldn't really afford it at the time so I got the e.l.f. spray instead
This does make my makeup last longer and gives it a more natural and less 'powdery' look:)
This retails for £3.75

I purchased a packet of the Sainsbury's Basics 80* Cotton Pads
I feel like I'm constantly including cotton pads in my haul posts but I purchase them so often haha
I ran out of my Primark cotton pads and as I don't have a Primark very close to me, I chose these and they aren't very soft so I won't be purchasing these again but I will finish the packet:)
These retail at 55p

I also purchased this New Look Burgundy Chiffon Sleeveless Belted Dress
I absolutely love this! I purchased this for my Nan's funeral :( and for Sixth form as well
Very comfortable, available in many other colours and fits perfectly:)
This retails at £19.99

Boots recently had a buy one get one half price on all Bourjois costmetics so I purchased two items:)

I think this is my third tube and I got through my second a lot quicker than I thought! This is a great concealer and the first time I have had to pay full price as I purchased the other two on half price offers:)
Recommend this to anyone:)
This retails at £7.49

Also on the offer I purchased the Bourjois Liner Pinceau Liquid Eyeliner in 32 Noir Beaux-Arts which is just a black
I have wanted to try this for a while and my Rimmel eye liner had just run out and I thought I would purchase this now while it is on offer
I have tried this a few times since I purchased it and I really like it! I can't see much difference between the Bourjois and Rimmel eyeliners but the Bourjois one lasts a little longer:)
I purchased this for £3.49 and retails for £6.99

I received this pack of Bourjois Facial Gems free when I purchased the other two items
I won't use these on my face but I might try to use these on my nails:)

Lastly I purchased four home products from Primark!

The first is this Primark Vintage Floral Bed Throw
I saw this in Dollybowbow's recent Primark haul video and immediately fell in love with it!
I am redecorating my bedroom and have changed my design and this worked perfectly!
My mum looked in every Primark she could and finally found it in Cambridge:)
This was £15

I also got this Primark Vintage White Duvet Cover Set
This is a plain white duvet cover and pillowcase set with some vintage detailing around the edge which I really like and it won't steal too much focus from the bed throw:)
This was £16

I also got this Primark White Fitted Sheet and a Primark White Pillowcase
The fitted sheet was £4.50 and the pillowcase was £1.90

Hope you enjoyed this post and thank you for reading!
I would love if you would follow me on Instagram:) @mollylouise96
My next post will be my February favourites and then another personal and lifestyle related pos:)

Have you got/tried any of these products? What have you been purchasing over the last few months?
