Supermarket Shopping!

Technically it's still Saturday for me as I haven't gone to sleep. This evening I pursued the beauty aisles of 'Asda', a UK supermarket like I was on some kind of secret mission to find something that I supposedly needed. A great way to spend Saturday night, I know. :)

The first thing I apparently needed was a toffee shimmer oil and chocolate bubble bath, of course.



The scents won me over, both of them are by N-spa which I think is exclusive to Asda. The toffee shimmer body oil has a sheer tint and tiny flecks of shimmer, once applied it gives a 'healthy' finish and smells of caramel and fruits. I have tried N-Spa's shower gels in the past too, and the vanilla one is my favourite.



Here's the lot I came home with.
  • Ambre Solaire - Dry face mist self tan. £7.50
  • N Spa - Toffee shimmer body oil £3.98
  • N Spa - Loving chocolate bubbly bath (Limited Edition) £1
  • Montagne Jeunesse - Chocolate masque 97p
  • Rimmel - Eyebrow pencil dark brown £2.98


I needed fake tan specifically for my face, this dry face mist by Ambre Solaire fit the bill. I haven't tried this particular product before, but am in much need. I don't think I have been so pale. *Holiday please!*
Will I be orange like the can, or bronze like the wording? Hmmmm...


Asda also has make up and lots of it. But everything is very cheap and cheerful. I wanted an eyebrow pencil as I have never tried one before and thought a Rimmel one would be a good starting point. And... guess what? It's actually quite nice, I'm wearing it in the photos, but keep in mind I have no other pencil to compare it to, it's a whole new world.



On an extra note, I flat ironed / straightened my hair for the first time since I got it cut. It looks like the layers have done a runner, but I assure you they are there. I am also liking the colour of my hair, it's gone a lot lighter from when I had it dyed.


What are your best supermarket buys?

Also, yesterday I received my 'About Face' book by Scott Barnes, it's just AMAZING, I purchased from the book depositary which has free delivery worldwide. I will do a separate post on it, because it's that great!

Who can resist something that sounds so scrumptious? Mm'mmm....chocolate bubble bath! I'd probably end up licking myself like a kitten, hahaha ^_~

I never have enough luck to find anything at the market! I wish the local markets around me had more treasures. You're so lucky you can obtain such neat finds!!

They have a brand in Tescos which looks IDENTICAL to Nspa and I thought it was the same but it wasn't. Never thought to look in ASDA again.

My two favourite supermarket buys at the mo are the Tescos Vit E wipes and the ASDA nail polish.

I'm waiting for my scott barnes book through amazon..its pre ordered...didnt know about the website you mentioned otherwise would have ordered from there. :(

The N Spa chocolate stuff sounds amazing, and the packaging reminds me of Philosophy :) I'd love to read your reviews!!

I love the ambre solaire selftan. It gives a nice tan and does not go patchy. Much better than St Tropez.

Tali said...

nadine said...

Please keep us posted on how you're liking the Garnier self-tan spray... You can't get much paler than me and while I usually just accept (and sometimes even like) my paleness, I'm thinkg of getting a tanner, just for a change.

Thanks!
