As always, the expiry date on the No7 £5 vouchers approached far too quickly, and I had five to use up! In the end I only used three, the sales assistant manage to both extremely confuse and con me! Ended up paying £5 more than I should have because she convinced me to use the No7 3 for 2 promotion, even though I insisted I didn't want to! GRRRR: note to self, trust your instincts!
Anyways, onto the haul. My first thoughts were to pick up the No7 BB Cream, however after swatching the normal/oily cream in medium, I was worried although the tone was deep enough, it leaned slightly too pink, so I will be trundling back at a later date with a MAC sample pot to decant myself a little sample! In the end, I really liked the look of their new skincare range, and picked up the Beautiful Skin Foaming Cleanser for normal/oily skin - retailing at £9.00 here - to use with me old Clarisonic - foamy face washes seem to work better with this. I had been using the Body Shop Passion fruit gel type cleanser, which lathers up pretty well, but doesn't reaaaaally seem to do anything except clean. First thoughts are that I really like this cleanser, and I will do a review on it in the near future.

I also picked up the Beautiful Skin Purifying Exfoliator, which retails at £8.00 here, as I love me a good old scrub - although I have limited my scrub days to Monday and Thursday as I can get a bit over-zealous with the amount of days I scrub! Again, first impressions on first use are wonderful, I really like it and will do an in-depth review soon.
I picked up the mini kit for my mother, which was a bargain at only £5!
Makeup-wise, the first thing I picked up was the Perfect Lips Pencil in Fire! I have only recently got into the whole red lips thing, and have been using my nude lip liner as a base, but really needed a red one, so picked this up!

Stay Perfect Nail Colour in Temptress, Perfect Lips Lip Liner in Fire, Stay Perfect Nail Colour in Pinky Pure
The Last of my bits are my fail-safe options when it comes to No7 Vouchers - Stay Perfect Nail Colours. The colour temptress is my classic vampy red shade, and has been since I was 18, I am sure you will see a nail of the day with this colour very soon. The second nail colour is Pinky Pure, which I think may be a Limited Edition colour, as I picked it up from the Limited Edition stand. I am currently wearing this, and will be doing a nail of the day on it ASAP!
Hope you enjoyed this little haul of mine!
