February Haul

As I am tracking my shopping expenses these days and also it is nice to share my haul with all my friends here, here is the list of products I got this month. I have seperated it into 2 categories - Cosmetic Haul and TBS Haul.

The Body Shop Haul

I can brief it as The Body Shop haul as all products except one were purchased from The Body Shop.

1.Earrings from Zuni, Banglore -Rs.520
2.TBS Assorted Soap Kit - Rs.297.50
3.TBS Nail Buffer - Rs.122.50
4.TBS Jolly Orange Scrub - Rs.262.50
5.TBS Olive Scrub - Rs.197.50

So a Total of Rs.1400.

Though my budget was a maximum of Rs.1000.. We never stick on to budgets ;) do we?? Also all TBS products I got were on offer and surprisingly got all the above on 50% discount !!!!! Yaayy!!!

1.Zuni Earrings

These earrings match my Swarovski finger ring, so really wanted this when my hubby sent the pic of this from Bangalore :) [Just to add more glamour to the TBS haul ;)]

2.TBS Assorted Soap Kit

This kit has soaps in the shape and fragrance of banana, olive, orange, lemon and strawberry. I feel they are the usual TBS soaps shaped in the form of the respective fruit.

3.TBS Nail Buffer

This one was bought for my hubby but seeing it leaving a ultimate glossy finish on my nails I am looting this one ;)

4.TBS Jolly Orange Scrub and 5.TBS Olive Scrub

I like trying various bath products like shower gels, bubble baths, body wash, scrubs, etc. These two scrubs are my recent ones :)

Cosmetic Haul

For the first time I got tempted to try new lipsticks and after reading Cynthia's Valentine's [Pink] Lip Colors I was more specific about getting pink colour lipsticks :)

1.Kara refreshing facial wipes - Rs.52
2.Revlon Plump sexxxy lip colour in Flirtatious - Rs.500
3.Maybelline color sensational lip stick in Pink Petal - Rs.299
4.Revlon Nail Color in Iced Spice - Rs.130
5.Maybelline Colorama - Rs.85
6.Coin purse - Rs.35

A total of Rs.1066.

1.Kara Wipes

Having already tried Kara wipes I wanted to try the different variants in these wipes and thus got these 20 refreshing facial wipes for Rs.52.

2.Revlon Lipstick

Revlon Plump Sexxxy Lipcolor in Flirtatious was a random pick and it looked good on me so just bought it :) It is a dark pink color with a bit of maroonish tint to it. This has SPF 15 as well.

3.Maybelline Lipstick

I tried all pinks in Maybelline color sensational lipsticks. The ones that suited me well were Warm me up and Pink Petal and I zeroed down to Pink Petal :) It is a lovely pink shade.

4.Revlon Nail Color

Revlon Nail color in Iced Spice is a nude natural shade [peachy] that I love :)

5.Maybelline Nail Colour

This is a pink shade Maybelline Colorama - not able to find the shade name or number anywhere :(

 6.Coin Purse

This purchase was an inspiration from Rads.. Ya I just looooooveeeed her cute coin purse. I am still in search of a similar one :)

I have spent Rs.2466. Is it a bad amount?
So this is it for the month. Has anyone tried any of the above products? Do share your experience :)

    Nail buffers are used to smoothen your nails and make it even and soft. Facial buffers serves a similar purpose where it polishes and exfoliates the skin :) TBS has facial buffers which I always wanted to try.
