London Beauty Haul: High-End Products

IMG_2083post IMG_2087post IMG_2089post IMG_2096post IMG_2114post IMG_2122post

I’m finally starting my London haul series and because the high-end products post will be the easiest and tiniest one, I decided to make it first. It has just a few products because there are many luxurious brands available in Norway and the ones that aren’t available here and I was looking for in London, always had their best products sold out. It was quite sad but oh well, I guess I have to keep waiting for NARS and Charlotte Tilbury *sigh*
Something similar actually happened at Boots too! Even the drugstore products that I wanted were always sold out.

I really didn’t need another moisturiser but I have a soft spot for Clarins and I always want to try more products from them. I got their Multi-Active Day Early Wrinkle Correction Cream-Gel. To me cream-gel sounded really suitable for my combination skin and I have to start thinking about preventing the first wrinkles already so hopefully this will help.

I love L’Occitane and I get really excited when I see a store because here we have only small counters with their products. I’m a huge fan of their sets, so I was hoping to get some in London but unfortunately there were no new ones or ones that I haven’t tried. At the end I decided to pick a hand cream because L’Occitane hand creams are some of the best. I haven’t tried the Arlésienne Velvet Hand Cream and the scent was amazing, so this was my choice.

Me and my boyfriend decided to go to Liberty’s and get a present for his parents because they love taking baths, so we picked the Aromatherapy Associates Miniature Bath & Shower Oil Collection. It has 10 oils which are: Inner Strength Bath & Shower Oil, Deep Relax Bath & Shower Oil, Light Relax Bath & Shower Oil, De-Stress Mind Bath & Shower Oil, De-Stress Muscle Bath & Shower Oil, Revive Evening Bath & Shower Oil, Revive Morning Bath & Shower Oil, Support Equilibrium Bath & Shower Oil, Support Lavender & Peppermint Bath & Shower Oil, Support Breathe Bath & Shower Oil. I really hope they will like this collection.

And last but not least, again from Liberty’s I got something that I’ve been wanting for such a long time. It’s the Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler and the reason why I wanted it so bad is because I’ve never used an eyelash curler simply because of fear. Yes, I was always too scared to buy a drugstore curler and twist my eyelashes not knowing what would happen to them. It is a pricey tool but I’m sure it will serve me a long time, I already tried working with it and there is a huge difference. My lashes look prettier even without mascara. I’d still recommend not using curlers instead of risking your eyes with cheap ones.

Have you used any of these products?

  1. Oh, lovely post :) I’d love to try the /Shu Umera lash curler, do you think it is better than others in that price range? I love the bath and shower oils as well, from Aromatherapy Associates, the best ever. I’m sure the parents will love it!

    1. Thanks, loved your post, as well!
      Well, I’m about to try the Tweezerman curler, for example, so I can’t compare them at the moment. So many make-up artists that I respect use the Shu Uemura tool that honestly, I didn’t even think twice, it’s a great investment.

      Wish you a lovely weekend!
