Haul: A Little Bit of Everything

Over the past few weeks or so, I’ve been on the hunt for a number of things, and wanted to pick up some old favourites, and it has been quite some time since I bought anything worthy of a haul post (and coming up to Christmas, there probably wont be in the near future either!) but as you will see, these are pretty exciting!


First of all, I stopped by Lush. I needed a new pot of Big shampoo because I have used it up. Buy far the best clarifying shampoo I have used. I also got to bring in my 5 empty pots for a free face mask. Oatifix is my choice, perfect for my dry skin (and with Melbourne weather up and down as it is, I need it!). My other two purchases were a couple of soaps from their Christmas range. Snow Globe has a lovely lemony scent, and Mr Punch smells like, well, punch actually. These blocks can last ages, just but cutting them up into pieces!


Next, I decided to get the rest of the Face of Australia pastel nail polish line, since they were a measly $1.95 in Big W! After trying one, and loving the application, and durability. For that price, you really can’t go wrong. Also from Priceline, I sneakily picked up Australis’ Rose Tattoo nail polish. Metallics are an awesome quick nail polish choice, they dry super fast, and who doesn’t love a rose gold?!


Finally, and probably the most exciting, was that I was lucky enough to find a stand of the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains. I think this Priceline had jumped the gun, because everywhere else either has an empty stand or no space for it yet. So to say that I was excited was an understatement. Priceline also had a Revlon deal of ‘Buy 2, get 30% off,’ so not only did I save a bit over $5 on each balm, but I also used my Priceline quarterly voucher and saved another $8.50! Like everything else, these are priced much higher than in the US, but with discounts, ended up not a lot more than what I would have paid online. Sadly, the orange shade you see is not available in Australia. I picked this up from an Ebay seller ($9.95 including shipping).

Have you found any good deals or bargains lately?? Anything in particular you would like to see a review on?
