Hidden Beauty Gems.

Friday, 22 July 2011

Hi Ladies.

The other day i popped along to Pound Land to pick up some household essentials for the flat, loo roll, washing up liquid, sponges etc and found myself looking down the 'Beauty Aisle'.

I've been in there before and managed to pick up a couple of Sally Hansen nail items which I was dead chuffed about so I thought I would have a look to see if there were any gems lurking about the shelves. While eyeing up the shampoos and conditioners (as I used mine up in Project Bathroom) I discovered on the top shelf some VO5 products. I couldn't believe my luck, Since their revamp I have been more intrigued to try out their products, I already have their deep conditioning treatment and Miracle Concentrate, and next on my list was to test out the shampoos and conditioners.

I got the Revive Me Daily Shampoo & Conditioner in 250ml bottles. These retail in boots for £1.99 each so I haven't made a massive saving but I got 99p off each of them which I am still pleased about! If you would like me to review them, just let me know. :-)

I also needed some new toothpaste so I had a quick look and saw that they had some Arm & Hammer pastes. I had heard really good things about this brand being good for whitening so I picked up a tube of that too. I'm not sure how much this retails for usually as I think its varied between shops, possibly around £3?? I knew that picking it up for £1 I was still getting a bargain! :-)

Have you ever ventured into pound shops and found some hidden gems? Let me know in the comments! :-)

  3. I love the VO5 Nourish Me shampoo/conditioner, makes my hair so soft! Home Bargain is amazing for hair care products, they usually sell Treseme, John Frieda, all different brands for really cheap. I rarely buy hair care from Superdrug and Boots now cos I know I can get it cheaper elsewhere :)

  4. I found a Rimmel Moisture Renew Lipstick in 520 'forget me not'. It was in a plastic bag packaging too which was great as I knew it hadn't been opened/swatched. Couldn't believe it was only £1 especially seeing as I in Boots these lipsticks are £6.29! There was loads of Rimmel things in my local one too, so definitely worth a look :)

  5. I've picked up a few bargain cosmetics items, loreal eye shadow and rimmel lipsticks.  Today on my way to work I actually picked up a Sex and the City 2 authorised hardback book, total bargain, so worth a look now and then x

    I love Arm & Hammer but hate spending so much on it in Boots- never thought Poundland would stock it! Definitely going there next time xxx

  7. I love browsing in pound shops, shame my town has none! Having to pay crazy bus fare negates the bargains!
