Told you it wouldn't be long until I stepped into the dangerous cavern that is Boots! I went in with an intention: Nail polish, nail polish remover, eye cream. I guess two out of three with two added bonuses is ok? Right..?

LA ROCHE POSAY HYDRAPHASE UV INTENSE,  £16.50 (x) Having oily skin I find I constantly feel like I'm stripping my skin, and in a way, I think I actually am. Now it's Spring, the weather changes have been harsh on my skin and I've found I need a little more moisure. I'm hoping this will do the trick! It contains Hyaluronic Acid, which we all know is good for keeping water in the skin, and it also protects against UVA & UVB rays.

ESSIE NOT JUST A PRETTY FACE, £7.99 (x) Ok I caved! Looking at swatches online made me want this and I have no shame! It looks like a pinkier version of Eternal Optimist and I'm excited to try it out!

BENEFIT FAKE UP, £18.50 (x) I figured my dry eye area problem wasn't just to do with skin care, it was to do with the wrong concealer. I used to use MAC Studio Finish with no problem but now it seems my poor little eyes are rebelling! I picked this up after reading various reviews online and after swatching it on my hand it seemed really hydrating. Plus its claims no creasing? We'll soon see.

VICHY AQUALIA THERMAL EYE ROLL-ON, £14 (x) This is what I went to Boots for all along! Again, been searching online and the reviews for this seem to be very good. It feels very cooling on the skin and very soothing. It says its for 'dehydrated under eye skin' and that it 'De-puffs, fortifies and soothes under the eyes helping to reduce bags and dark circles' so I'm hoping the combination of this and the new concealer will do me wonders!

So that's my haul done! Have you tried any of these products? Would you like me to review any? Let me know!
