Organic Surge Haul

Afternoon beautiful (yes, you!) .. I have a little haul for you here, I ordered this mid June but never got round to taking photo's for a haul. If you follow me on Instagram (allthesimplethingsxo) you would know I finally fixed one of my blogging problems and bought a new laptop :D It's on windows 8 though so I'm really struggling to get used to it hence this taking so long. Anyway.. to the haul!

I told you it was a little one..

First class mask - £8.49
Daily care face wash - Reduced from £5.49 - £2.74
Blissful daily moisturiser - £8.49
Kiss & Make up wipes - Reduced from £3.49 - £0.87

I've tried and loved the BDM so wanted to grab another tub/jar and it was free shipping over £20 I think so I thought I'd treat myself as my birthday had just been. Have to say though, I'm not very keen on the smell of the face wash.. but I shall report back if and when I use it.

I have another collective haul coming up soon (with 2 parts) so stay tuned!

June Empties

I will get back into blogging properly soon.. This blog isn't just for 'Empties', as it seems lately.

Anyway, lets get on with the show


1. L'oreal Preference Hair dye - Tried this for a change instead of the 'nice n easy' ones and wanted to go slightly lighter anyway, so just grabbed a box and didn't look back. + I love the way it has turned out. Repurchase? When my roots need doing, yes.
2. Superdrug Heart On Your Sleeve Dry Shampoo - This dry shampoo smelt lovely, just like holidays and cocktail.. but sadly didn't do too much for my hairs state of cant-be-bothered-to-shampoo-ness. It sadly just made my hair feel a bit powdery. Repurchase? No. 

Make up etc.. 

1. Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation - One of my all time favourites.. I bought it a few years ago when it was all the rage and It broke me out to start with, but after a few uses it was fine. It's a light to medium coverage, but that's perfect for me day to day. Repurchase? Yes as I'm dying to see what to new one is like.
2. Garnier Shine Be Gone Moisture Match - Aimed at Combination Oily skin (Not that you can tell by the name) I wouldn't say it was mattifying in any way nor did it control shine. It did smell pretty nice though. Repurchase? Probably not.
3. No7 Stay Perfect Nail Polish in Milan - I'm not really sure what to say about this.. apart from if you can get hold of it, do! It's such a lovely colour and it's shiny without being glittery (Which when it comes to removal is a bonus.)
4. L'oreal Super Liner - My now all time favourite eye liner, I got in to liquid eye liner towards the end of last year and this has served me a very good 6-8 months. As I have oily lids it's staying power isn't brilliant, but with an eye primer underneath it lasts as long as I need it to. Repurchase? Yes.


1. St Moriz Self Tanning Mousse in Dark - Not much I can say about this that you haven't probably already heard. Although a couple of things I find different to other people, it doesn't dry my skin out and it doesn't transfer (Maybe my skin is just super absorbent or something) So if your looking for a budget self tanner, I'd definitely give this a go, but I recommend putting some kind of rubber/ latex gloves on under your tanning mit so you don't get grubby paws!!
2. Sainsbury's Little Ones Fragrance Free baby wipes - Not alot to say about these really, I used them to clean my desk and mascara wands etc. I did on a few lazy occasions use them to remove my make up, but my sensitive skin wasn't too impressed. Repurchase? Yes.
3. Boots Therapy Relaxing Bath Essence - As you may or may not know, I love own brand bubble baths.. but this did not live up to my usual Asda/Tesco/ etc.. standards sadly. Maybe I just didn't enjoy the scent.. I dunno. But if asked would I, Repurchase? The answer would have to be no.
4. Dr. Bronner's Magig Soap (Citrus Orange) - I tried this as a a shower gel, but it was very much like a soap and dried out my skin (I know that sounds silly given the name but hey thought i'd try it) So I just decided to use it as a pre cleanse when washing my make up brushes, which worked a treat!! Repurchase? Yes.
5. Dove Original Deo - Written about in nearly all my empties. Repurchase? 100x yes.
6. Veet Hair Removal Cream for sensitive skin - Again, not much I can say really.. it works haha. The only bad thing I have to say is the smell.. and i think this goes for most hair removal creams.. they smell like perming lotion (EWW!) But yes, as it says on the packaging.. it  even works on super short hairs! Repurchase? Maybe, but using a boots version this time round (Spolier - It doesn't smell like perming lotion! :D)

Rambling's about rubbish over, hope this wasn't too boring..
