There is nothing more that I love than having a mini haul, oh wait a mini haul for Christmas presents!
I decided to grab some things for family as wrap ups and fancied doing a gift bag for everyone with their must have treats inside.
So I was offered to do a little haul on Chemist4U at budget, oh boy did I smash it and get quite a few things for my budget! Now, if I can just avert my family’s eyes from this post whilst I show you what treats I got!
I have out them in separate categories and gone over the hole process of using the website and delivery.
The website is very easy to use and has different sections for categories. I was impressed when you clicked on hair they also had a male and female option too.
This made my experience smooth, very user friendly.
Prices are hit and miss, I got some really good bargains however some prices were the same as shops. You could get some pretty awesome things for low prices.
Adding items to my basket was easy too, I could edit my basket with ease. Add or remove, just with one click.
Ordering was quick, payment taken straight away.
Delivery admittedly was slow, I received these around 5 working days later. But the prices are good so I wasn’t too bothered about the wait for delivery.
Packing was great, packed very well and no breakages. They used the right sized box, there is hope that people will stop using oversized boxes for small items (It is a pet peeve)
Overall it’s a pleasant experience and I will happily purchase in the future.
I needed to grab some cleansing wipes and found there was a few different ones, however the micellar wipes I usually get had sold out.
Instead, I grabbed the Nivea 3 in 1 Refreshing Cleansing Wipes which I have used before.
I enjoy using these wipes to either remove make up or give my skin a good cleanse when I can’t or don’t have time to cleanse.
They are soft but work very well on removing dirt.
Handy to keep in your bag too!
Nivea Soft Refreshingly Soft Moisturising Cream is also another favourite of mine. I use this primarily on my hands and I know everyone in my family is a big lover of this product.
You can use it as a moisturiser for face, body, hands and feet. It’s an all over, all purpose cream and one I reach to more than anything.
Quickies Nail Varnish Remover Pads are a favourite for me and my family. I prefer using these as they are convenient, easy to use and works super well.
One pad removes polish from both hands.
They don’t dry my nails out either and they feel smooth and look nourished.
I love the Fit Me range by Maybelline so was itching to try the Matte + Poreless Powder.
Sometimes I just need a little bit more matte around my nose.
This powder is very fine, sits well on top of my foundation and covers really well.
The colour is great also and leaves skin looking smooth and flawless.
Another Make-Up product I got was a Max Factor lipstick in Star Dust Pink.
I do like pretty lipsticks and this one is just right up my street.
It’s very smooth, moisturising and opaque. I found the colour lasts a good few hours without application and does transfer a little.
My lips felt very soft with this lipstick and really enjoy the formula.
Now the last items I purchased are admittedly for my older lads. They are at that stage where they spend half an hour each morning pruning and preening their hair.
Batiste Dry Shampoo is a well used staple. I purchase this all the time and the lads steal it for their own hair.
The scent I purchased is Fresh as I know they really do like this and they can’t moan about the floral ones I purchase. Hey, I prefer floral!
Last thing on my list was some Schwarzkopf got2b iStylers texture clay.
Clay is something they have started using now, so I was intrigued on how they will get on with this one.
It has a vibrant, fresh scent. Very citrus like. Maybe verbena. It’s a nice consistency and does not dry the hair which is important for their young hair.
I was pleasantly surprised with the site, from the ease of use to the prices and array of different products.
I was a bit sad that quite a good chuck of what I wanted originally was sold out, but I think I did pretty well with this haul and I will be making another purchase soon!
*I was sent these items to do a haul and review, my words are honest and of my own thoughts and feelings.
