Superdrug Mini-Haul

Last week I was in the holiday spirit and ordered a few items from Superdrug
for my holiday to Florida, which is 5 weeks away but still, I couldn't resist. For those of you who aren't familiar with Superdrug, it's basically a drugstore in the UK, which sells all sorts of beauty products and more. The flight will be over 10 hours and I hate the feeling of my skin being dry and dehydrated on the plane, so I am prepared this time!

Ok so the first products I got were by Simple. I love this brand, most of the products are affordable for everyday use and they really work! I chose the Simple Kind To Eyes Make-Up Remover, Simple Kind To Skin Soothing Facial Toner, and the Simple Kind To Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser. They are all 50ml travel-sized bottles which are great for hand luggage because of the restrictions, and they can be thrown away before I come home so hopefully I'll be able to buy more things out there without going over the weight limit, fingers crossed!
Then I got a travel-sized Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula which I have actually never tried before (I know, disgraceful!). But I can safely say I am loving this already after trying it out, oops. Another travel-sized product is the Nivea Invisible for Black & White Anti-Perspirant which I'll take in my hand luggage as it's always handy with going to a hot country and while in a rush at the airport, as always!
I paint my nails every few days and I don't want to put a big nail varnish remover bottle in my suitcase so I bought the Quickies 20 Nail Varnish Remover Pads which will be perfect for when I'm over there.
Next I bought the Collection Pump Up The Volume Loud Lash Mascara in 17 Ultra Black, and the Collection Pump Up The Volume Waterproof Mascara in 1 Black. I have been using these mascaras for over a year and never bought anything better, I use them every day and I love them! They last me for ages too as when they start going dry, I put a few drops of water in and even though it goes slightly thinner and watery, it's still easy to apply. More from Collection, I got the Illuminating Touch Brightening Concealer in 1 Naked. This is one of the best concealers I have used. It matches my skin tone perfectly and covers my dark circles well (I suffer from quite bad dark circles and have tried everything to get rid of them!). Extreme 24 Hour Felt Tip Liner in 1 Black was another product I purchased from Collection, and I love this liquid eyeliner, it lasts me for ages, it's fast drying and stays on for hours.
I purchased the B. Groomed Eyebrow Kit in Blonde, which I have never tried before but it seems good value for money as it has the eyebrow pencil one end and a wax pencil on the other, with a brush on the lid for softening your eyebrows once the pencil has been applied.
The last two products I got were the ones I was most excited about using now never mind on holiday! They were the 2true Cheek 'n' Lip Tint in Rose and the Sleek Pout Paint in 157 Pin Up. The Lip Tint is similar to Benefit's Benetint but for a fraction of the price, and I think works as good, as well as giving your lips a lovely bright rose colour which lasts for ages. I attempted to put this on my cheeks but it didn't blend very well, although that was probably my fault. The Pout Paint is an amazing colour, a really rich red, but can be blended to make a hot pink colour. You only need the tiniest bit of this product on a lip brush and you have complete coverage on your lips! Another bonus is that you can use this alone or mix with other shades in the range, meaning you'll be able to get your perfect colour.
So that's all I got in my Superdrug delivery! I hope you liked reading this and please comment with products you'd like me to try! Are you going to try any of the products mentioned? What products do you buy from Superdrug?
