My June Purchases

First up was a little order on LookFantastic.com, with 10% off & free P&P:

The Konjac Sponge Co. Bamboo Charcoal Facial Puff Sponge, £6.99
As my first sponge had gone mouldy and was looking a little worse for wear, I decided to re-purchase one, but this time I went with the bamboo charcoal one, as it is aimed at problem skin, so I was hoping it would help clear up my blemishes. I think this is just as good as the French pink clay sponge, but I don't think it has made a difference to my blemishes, as yet.
JĀSÖN Super Shine Apricot Shampoo, £6.29/480ml & JĀSÖN Super Shine Apricot Conditioner, £6.29/480ml
This was actually quite an apprehensive purchase, due to the fact that the only other JĀSÖN products I had used previously - the Sea Kelp shampoo and conditioner - gave me a really bad skin reaction! But I didn't want one bad experience to banish this brand from my life forever, so I thought I'd give them another try. I opted for the apricot hair products this time, as they claim to make your hair super shiny, which sounded great! They smell so good!

We visited TK Maxx in-store and I also made a few online purchases:

Nine West Cognac Long Bi-Fold Purse, £12.99 (sold out)
I bought myself a lovely new purse! This faux leather number has loads of card slots and is a classic tan and cream colour.
EcoTools Bath & Shower Mitt, RRP £3.99 £2.99
I wanted to replace my mesh shower puffs with something more eco-friendly and natural, so I purchased this wash mitt to try out. It's really effective, plus it's also exfoliating, so I will be purchasing another one soon. These are made out of ramie and rayon from bamboo.
We also picked up these delicious bottles of Virgil's Cream Soda (4 pack), £5.49, and these 1.6L 100% recycled glass bottles, £3.99 each, with screw-top lid, which will be perfect for bottling water and home-made drinks.

I placed my first order on Naturisimo:

Naturisimo Travel Essentials Discovery Box, £9.95
I decided to go ahead and order the latest discovery box - it looks like many of my favourite bloggers also did this (although most were gifted to them). The box includes seven sample size products, which are all travel-friendly. I didn't buy this box for travelling purposes - I just wanted to try out some different brands and thought this was a very budget-friendly way of doing so! I will be aiming to review most of these items after I've trialled them.
I also picked up a sample of Pai's Geranium & Thistle Balancing Day Cream, £1/4ml, which Kate from Wild Organic Beauty has raved about!

I also made a few homeware purchases, which were mainly for the bedroom overhaul - before and after post coming soon. Oh, and we bought a new dishwasher!

What did you purchase in June?

    1. Thanks, Liz! I just had to get that in there about the dishwasher - our old one was second hand from my parents and was over 15 years old! So happy with our sparkly new one, haha. :) xxx

  3. I'd love to know your thoughts on the Jason shampoo and conditioner. Some lovely purchases - the Pai moisturiser is gorgeous, but it's so expensive once you're addicted! I've recently tried Faith in Nature moisturisers, and I really like them! Have you tried them? xx

    1. I'll be sure to post a review once I've sampled them a bit more - they smell gorgeous, though! I haven't tried any of the FIN facial products, but I'd love to give them a try. xxx
