Getting those summer essentials: another haul!

I was running a bit low on some of my skincare necessities – if you have followed this blog, you will know my idea of necessity encompasses quite a lot of products – so I did some lovely shopping. I have combined the results of several online orders and actual trips in this post, to give you an idea of what you can expect to see on this blog in the coming weeks and months.

I purchased two of the Colab dry shampoos by the amazing Ruth Crilly from A Model Recommends. I went with floral Paris and the extreme volume version in classic London. Can’t wait to see how these compare to my beloved Batiste.

The second big thing is the Radiant Skin Box by Feel Unique. The beauty box contains the GlamGlow Youthmud, the Ren Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial, the hyped First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads, and the Caudalie Beauty Elixir. This box retails for £35/€49 and is worth double. All of these products have been on my wishlist for a while, so this was a great bargain.big haul with colab, aurelia, feel unique, mac

Those of you who share my slight obsession with organic skin care will have heard of Aurelia Probiotic Skincare. I loved the sound of the Cell Repair Night Oil, with Neroli, Lavender, Rose, and Mandarin. Doesn’t that just sound divine?

I took advantage of a lovely offer and also received two decent samples of the Miracle Cleanser and Revitalise & Glow serum as well as a cute little cloth. I will of course properly review this, but impatient me has already cracked open the Cell Repair Night Oil and it is just as amazing as I had hoped.

Finally, after visiting the Game of Thrones exhibition in Amsterdam last week (absolutely amazing btw), my friend and I ended up at the Mac counter. I bought my first ever Mac lipstick: Peach Blossom. I cannot believe it took me this long, but I can’t wait to see if they live up to their little hype.

So, that was my exciting haul. Some amazing new products I simply can’t wait to try. You can expect first impressions and full reviews of these to appear in the coming months. Obviously, the skincare will take a little longer since I believe you should really try these products for 6 to 8 weeks before you can truly see whether they work for you.

Anything in there you have been lusting after? Let me know 😉


Een aantal belangrijke huidverzorgingsproducten raakten op – en als je mijn blog volgt, weet je dat mijn definitie van noodzakelijke huidverzorging erg ruim is – dus ik ben lekker aan het shoppen geweest. Ik heb de resultaten van een aantal online bestellingen en winkel trips in deze post gecombineerd, om jullie een idee te geven van wat je kunt verwachten op dit blog in de komende weken en maanden.

Een hoop verschillende dingen, waaronder nieuwe huidverzorgings- en haarproducten. Ik heb bij de Primark een aantal heel handige potjes gekocht: super voor op reis of om monsters in over te gieten. Echt een koopje voor maar €1.50.

Ik kocht ook twee Colab droog shampoos van de geweldige Ruth Crilly van beautyblog A Model Recommends. Ik koos de bloemerige Paris en de extreme volume versie in klassiek London. Kan niet wachten om uit te vinden hoe deze vergelijken met mijn vertrouwde Batiste.

De tweede grote aankoop is de Radiant Skin Box van Feel Unique. Deze beauty box bevat de GlamGlow Youthmud, het Ren Flash Rinse 1 Minute Facial, de veel aangeprezen First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Pads, en het Caudalie Beauty Elixir. Deze box kost ongeveer €49 maar is het dubbele waard. Al deze producten heb ik al een tijdje op mijn verlanglijstje staan, dus dit was een koopje.

De lezers die mijn obsessie voor natuurlijke huidverzorging kennen hebben vast al gehoord van Aurelia Probiotic Skincare. De Cell Repair Night Oil, met Neroli, Lavendel, Roos en Mandarijn klonk echt geweldig.

Ik maakte gebruik van een leuke aanbieding en kreeg er twee grote samples bij van de Miracle Cleanser en de Revitalise & Glow serum met een leuk schoonmaak doekje. Ik zal deze natuurlijk gewoon reviewen, maar ik was een beetje ongeduldig en heb de Cell Repair Night Oil al opengemaakt: wat een goddelijke geur!

Na het bezoek aan de Game of Thrones tentoonstelling in Amsterdam vorige week (helemaal te gek trouwens), eindigde ik met een vriendin bij de Mac. Ik kocht mijn allereerste Mac Lipstick: Peach Blossom. Ik kan niet geloven dat het zo lang heeft geduurd voor ik een Mac lipstick kocht maar ik kan niet wachten om deze mooie kleur te gebruiken.

Best een hoop en een paar geweldige producten die ik graag wil proberen. Je kunt eerste indrukken en volledige reviews in de komende maanden verwachten. De huidverzorging zal iets langer duren, aangezien ik echt geloof dat je dat 6 tot 8 weken moet gebruiken om verschil te kunnen zien.

Zit hier iets tussen wat jij al een tijdje graag wilt proberen? Laat het me weten 🙂

    Can’t wait to see your review on the Colab dry shampoos. I haven’t bought them yet because i also love the Batiste dry shampoo and Ruth’s is quite expensive.

      First impressions on Colab are great, but I need a little longer to do a proper compare to my beloved Batiste. Will write it up soonish!

    Awesome haul! I have the Colab volumizing dry shampoo and I love it! I was never a fan of dry shampoo until I tried that one – it does not leave any white residue, and it really provides good volume for 2nd day hair.
    That MAC lipstick looks like a nice every day shade – very soft and wearable. Congrats on no longer being a MAC lipstick virgin, lol! 😛
