What I bought in December - new haul

Well, well, well. Someone has been shopping in December! Who can say no to sales and offers that started just after Christmas? Your girl did a little bit of online shopping.

I know most people don't like hauls since there is no point in doing them, many prefer reviews on products but I really like them since I get ideas on what people are buying and of course, I add products to my wishlist to try next.

Loreal Paris Age Perfect Rosy Glow Mask - an overnight treatment for tired and dull skin. It promises to hydrate, restore skin's radiance and reveal a fresh skin in the morning. I am a fan of the Loreal Pure Clay masks and they worked great for my skin so I hope this one works nicely too.

Loreal Paris Pure Clay Bright Mask - As I mentioned above, I really love this range of masks from Loreal and this is the newest addition to my stash. I have already used this twice and my skin feels so clean and bright after use, and also smooth like a baby's bottom.  I think this one gives me greatest results than the other two I used (Detox mask - the black one & Glow Mask - the red one) but nevertheless, all three work great.

Garnier Micellar Water 400ml - there is no need to introduce this micellar water since everyone has used or uses this one. It is a regular in my skincare routine and I always re-purchase when I run out.

Loreal Fine Flowers Cleansing Toner 400ml - I've seen a couple of mentions on instagram about this cleansing toner from Loreal and since it had a discount, I thought I would give it a try. It is a light and lovely scented toner that refreshes my skin and leaves it revitilized and soft. It has extracts of rose and jasmine flowers and I really like the floral scent.

Bourjois Rouge Velvet Lipstick - Flaming Rose 02 - this is my second lipstick from this range and the formula is amazing. It leaves a semi-matte finish on my lips, it is extremely comfortable to wear and it does not dry my lips. I would call this shade 'your natural lip color but slightly better' but it actually is a beautiful light pink nude.

I also bought these earrings from ebay, not relevant with beauty but I wanted to include them, I have been obsessing with tassel earrings and I think I ordered way to many pairs.

Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven Mud Mask Pamper Pack - these masks were an amazing deal since you get 6 masks for €5. I already tried the chocolate mask and I wish I bought more since I loved how my skin felt afterwards and the luxurious and delicious scent.

Korres gift set - I bought this set just before Christmas and I have been using the Brightening Rose Oil ever since. It is infused with real rose petals, it is hydrating and absorbs instantly without leaving my face greasy or oily. I haven't tried the Brightening Cream yet but I am not excited to, I tried the Brightening Mask last year and it did nothing for me, the only reason I bought this set was to try the oil.

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 - 30ml - This is my second bottle and I think this is a product I will forever re-purchase. My skin loves it! I use it both day and night but on my pm routine, I like to layer my serums and this one works brilliantly in hydrating my skin (hyaluronic acid holds 1000 times its molecule in water). It is a lightweight, watery product and I found that it has similar results as the 'Buffet' that I also use in my night skincare routine.

The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution - 30ml - I believe that this product is the most talked about product from the Ordinary range. Some people call it 'life changer', 'best exfoliator' etc. Used within 10 minutes, it exfoliates the top layer revealing a brighter and smoother skin. I used it twice so far, first time I was disappointed because I haven't noticed any difference and yes, I was expecting a miracle product that would reveal a new face (and a new me!) but second time was better. I know that it takes time to see results so I will continue to use it twice a week.

The Ordinary Retinol 0.2% in Squalane - 30ml - this is a first for me, I have been wanting to try Retinol for ages and I started with the lowest concentration. It reduces fine lines and revitalizes skin and it's a great addition to the pm skincare routine. It is important to use sunscreen when using products with retinol and avoid unprotected sun exposure. Let's see how it works on me!

Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask - this is a re-purchase since I enjoyed using this mask so much (review here). It leaves my skin moisturised, plump and smooth and the results are long lasting. Thumbs up from me!

Two days before Christmas, me and my friends at work visited a shop opposite our office that had offers on perfumes. They had up to 70% and I managed to pick these two. I wanted to buy a couple more to add to my collection but it was a nightmare, the shop was overcrowded and everyone was picking perfumes from the shelves and putting them to their carts and the shelves were empty within minutes. I also bought two for my fiance. The DKNY Be Delicious is a light, fresh summery scent  that I intend to use when the weather gets warmer.

The second one I picked is the Britney Spears Curious, I think I scored this for 10euros! It is a fruity floral perfume and it's so fresh and sweet, love it!!

Did you do any shopping in December?
