Boots No7 is great for providing vouchers for getting money of makeup. I, myself had a 6.50 euros off any skincare voucher and a 4 euros off any cosmetics voucher. They tend to do these vouchers as handouts every few months whenever you buy anything from Boots. To top things off this month they were giving away a small goodie box with any two cosmetic purchases! So I thought …why not 😉 we just need an excuse right haha!
For my 6.50 euros voucher off I had to get a skincare item. I’m currently quite happy with my skincare routine (comment if you would like me to do a post) so I didn’t need any new cleanser or day creams. Instead I picked up the No7 Protect & Perfect Lip Care. This is basically a very intensive treatment for your lips. I tend to get very dry and dehydrated lips from the sun so I thought this would be perfect for the summer months.
“This rich conditioning balm boosts moisture for 24 hours, leaving you with softer, healthier looking lips. Contains Lipopeptides to help smooth away lip roughness and our patent pending antioxidant complex to help protect your lips from the environment”
You get 10 mls of product in the tube (.33 oz) and this retails full price for 14 euros but I managed to pick it up for 7.50 euros because of the voucher. It has a lipgloss tube and the product itself is very much like a cream for the lips. Claims to be hypo-allergenic however this product does have a heavy scent to it so I wouldn’t recommend if your sensitive to fragrance.
Cosmetics wise I only got one thing for a myself and the other thing was for mom so I’m not including that in this post. I got the No7 Airbrush Away Foundation in the shade Calico which I believe is the lightest shade you can pick up in the stores. I’m going to have a full review of this product up on the blog as soon as I can because I personally think it deserves it’s own post.
In the goodie bag (it’s technically a box :P) I got three deluxe sized samples of permanent range products and one full sized. The first is a small 5ml tube of the No7 BB Lips Beauty Balm in the shade Coral Blush which I already have a full size of. I actually own two of these in case you guys are looking for a review of them…let me know 🙂 x
I also got a sample of the No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Facial Sun Protection which is basically a face moisturiser with SPF 15 added into it for sun protection. To be honest its a very low factor in my opinion considering it’s designed for sun protection. I personally think they should have made the SPF at least a 30.
Last of the samples is of the No7 Extreme Length Waterproof Mascara in the shade Black. I’m actually glad I got this because I’m currently running out of my holy grail Estee Lauder Extreme Sumptuous Mascara and have been wanting the try a new one before of course repurchasing the Estee Lauder one. I don’t know how I’m going to get on with this mascara because I don’t like plastic wands I prefer bristles but I’ll update you guys on twitter on how I get on (@SooSoBeauty)
Last product in the box is actually a full sized item. It’s the No7 Stay Perfect Metallic Eye Pencil in the shade Purple. I actually also own this pencil so this will be passed on to a friend or mom if the colour interests her. I do like the formulation of these liners but I wouldn’t say their the best on the market (Urban Decay and Rimmel do way better) but they’re ok if you want something middle range.
I will definitely be doing a review on the Airbrush Away Foundation but if you guys are interested in a review on anything else let me know in the comments below.
