Haul: Kiehl's, Aesop, Haircare, MAC

Kiehl's Creme de Corps, Ultra Facial Moisturizer SPF 15, Superbly Smoothing Argan Shampoo, Ultra Facial Cleanser, Ultra Facial Toner, Superbly Smoothing Argan Conditioner, Creme with Silk Groom, Ultra Facial Cream, Ultra Facial Oil-Free Gel Cream

From Kiehl's I picked up their cult product Creme de Corps as I've heard it's a great body lotion, as well as the Ultra Facial Moisturizer SPF 15, which I though would be a good lighter moisturiser to use in summer. I couldn't believe how generous the store assistant was with samples, everything else was given to me to try out! It really impressed me as receiving samples is a great way to try out products from a brand to see what you like. I liked the Ultra Facial samples and I'd consider looking into this skincare line in the future. 

Aesop Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque, Control, Chamomile Concentrate Anti-Blemish Masque

Over at Aesop I picked up the much raved about Parsley Seed Cleansing Masque - and it hasn't disappointed! I really like this masque as a purifying mask as it helps with blemishes but doesn't dry my skin out.  I also picked up Control, which is a blemish gel that you apply and leave overnight. This helps mildy, but I haven't been wowed with this product so far. Whenever I go to Aesop I always get a sample sachet or two. This time I received two samples of the Chamomile Concentrate Anti-Blemish Masque, which was nice to try but I think I prefer the Parsley Seed. Also, the full-size packaging is in a pot as opposed to a tube which isn't as convenient. 

Joico K-Pak Reconstruct Shampoo, Joico K-Pak Reconstruct Conditioner, Matrix Biolage Hydrathérapie, Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave In Conditioner, Bun Maker

I picked up a few hair care products from Hairhouse Warehouse. First up was a Joico pack which consisted of 500mL pump bottles of the K-Pak shampoo and conditioner. This was a great deal and is one of my favourite lines, so I picked this up as it was good value. Next, I picked up a Biolage shampoo as my hairdresser uses this on me and I wanted to try it out properly. This is my current shampoo and I love the scent it leaves in my hair and it leaves my hair feeling hydrated. I also grabbed a new leave in conditioner to try out - and this one from Healthy Sexy Hair was recommended by Amarixe so I though I'd try it out - it smells nice and works okay but it's not my favourite so I'll be looking for something else when I finish up this bottle. Finally I picked up a donut bun maker - which I've tried out but haven't actually worn out yet! 

First Aid Beauty Smooth Shave Cream, Glassshouse Montego Bay Candle

From David Jones, I purchased a travel size shave cream from First Aid Beauty. I've found it hard to find small sized shaving creams at the pharmacy so I picked up this little mini to use when travelling. It sounds like it will be great for my sensitive skin. I also bought a new Glasshouse candle for summer, this one is Coconut Lime and it smells truly fabulous, reminding me of a tropical holiday!

MAC Vegas Volt Amplified Lipstick

Over at MAC I traded in 6 containers and received a new lipstick through their Back to Mac recycling program. I chose Vegas Volt which is a lovely bright orange coral, and I really love it, especially because I didn't have to pay for it!


  1. Great selection of goodies you've purchased! I have the first aid beauty smooth shaving cream and its great, non irritating and works a treat!
