The Blogger Made Me Buy It




I think at least once a week, probably a lot more actually I find myself explaining to my boyfriend that once again I need yet another hair conditioner because 'I read this blog and it sounds amazing and my hair needs it'. He doesn't even ask anymore, he just gives me a look because he knows what's coming.

Let me tell you one thing I've learn't about blogging. It aint good for a shopping addiction. I was already a very bad shopaholic and now every surface, draw, cupboard the lot is so full of beauty products that I'm going to have to start peeling back the floor boards to find somewhere to store it. However my hairs soft and my skins like a dolphins soooo, worth it? YARS.


I've bought loads recently, but I've managed to narrow it down to four of my recent blogger induced buys because these, I absolutely love.

Clinique - Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm - I've wanted to try a cleansing balm for a while now, but after finding a cleansing milk by Soap and Glory that I really liked, I kind of put it aside as I didn't want to mess up my routine. However I'm like a magpie so I always end up wanting the new shiny thing and I kept seeing this pop up. It's £22 so not the cheapest thing ever, but also not ridiculous and I'm very happy that I finally bought it. I've been piling on the festive purple smokey eyes for the past few weeks and it has had no problems getting me fresh faced again. I take a little bit of this (a little bit goes a long way) and massage into my face before using a facial cloth to gently wipe away the day. It doesn't leave any residue, just soft, clean skin!

Nivea Men Post Shave Balm - As a primer ofcourse, not because I shave my face. Although I have heard that you can shave off the ol' peach fuzz, but I don't. Everyonnneeee has been raving about this as a make-up primer and after picking it up at Boots for £2.67 (!!!!) I completely get why! It's amazing! Make-up goes on so much nicer and lasts all day without becoming oily. It smells manly for about 5 seconds, but then you can't smell anything so it's not an issue; and you have to just kind of pour it out, so do this with caution.
WHY didn't I try this sooner. Sorry Mac and Benefit Primers, your going under the floorboards for a while.

Milk_Shake - Incredible Milk 12 Effects Leave In Treatment for all hair types - this does everything. Throw away all your other hair products (maybe not all) because this detangles, adds shine, protects from heat, prevents split ends, helps to maintain colour, adds body and volume and a whole other load of stuff. It smells so unbelievably nice also; I think it smells like Cream Soda, you might think otherwise. My hair is always a mess after a shower and a couple of sprays of this and I can already feel how soft my hair is and how much easier it is to brush through. I absolutely love this because it saves me from having to pile on about 5 different hair products and ending up with greasy hair, faaaaabulous. I got this for £10.75 on Beauty Bay.

Treacle Moon - Sugared Almond Tart Shower/Bath Gel - I keep seeing Treaclemoon popping up on blogs and I think a big reason why these are so popular is the adorable packaging! How cute are the bottles? I can imagine having like ten bottles all lined up looking ridic cute in my bathroom. The Honeycomb Secret has been everywhere at the minute but when I saw this little cutie I actually just couldn't resist the bottle.  They have loads of different scents in shower gels, Body Butters and Scrubs (most shower gels £1.99 in Tesco at the moment) and they all smell lovely and leave your skin lightly scented and so soft.

What have bloggers made you buy this month?
