discountUK Haul

I recently went into my local discountUK store to see if I could pick up any hair and beauty bargains, and I was not disappointed!  With the exception of 2 items I got everything for 99p! :)


(From left to right) GumTree Henna Hair Conditioner 99p, Twisted Sista blow drying creme 99p, Argan Oil Shampoo & condtioner both 99p, Clearasil Daily Care Wash & Mask £1.49, Hair Boutique Volumising inserts 99p & Malibu lip balm with SPF 30 (pack of 3) £1.49. 

GUM TREE Henna Hair Conditioner 

 
I had never heard of this brand before but I saw the word henna and thought I had to give it ago. I'd heard that henna was great for the hair and for 99p why not? I've only used this once so far because I have a massive tub of TRESemme deep conditioner to get through. I don't think this the product smells particularly nice, but has a nice consistency to it. It says to leave in your hair for 2-5 mins, longer the better I always think. When I tried it I only left it in for a short amount of time thanks to our leaky shower (only quick showers boo) but it did leave my hair soft. Once I've used this a bit more I'll update this space.

Another brand I hadn't heard of but I was looking for something that would tame my mildly frizzy/fluffy post blow dry hair or just make my hair soft and shiny. This product it quite sticky when you get it on your hands but once you work it through your hair no more stickiness. The smell reminds me of jelly sweets and while I'd say my flufffy hair is still fluffy the more I have used this the soft my hair feels. I don't know, maybe its this plus all the other crap I use aswell. :P  I'll keep using it 99p its worth it :)

Argan Oil Shampoo & Conditioner

Argan Oil, hairs BFF.
I've used Argan oil before but not in a shampoo and conditioner so I had to try these. I've used them once, because again I have shampoo and conditioner to use up, and I love it! It some how cut my blow dry time down which is an instant win as it seems to take forever to do anyway, and my hair was lovely and soft after using it. The conditioner smells better than the shampoo, and in addition to having Argan oil the conditioner contains Castor oil, Olive fruit, Coconut oil & Avocado oil. All lovely things for your hair :) I was so happy I went and bought some more £1.98 you can't loose.

HAIR BOUTIQUE volumising inserts

 

I saw a tutorial on youtube using these bad boys and thought how clever! (simple things, simple mind) And thought I'll have a look on ebay maybe sometime. No need discountUK has everything! The box includes 1 large insert, 2 medium and 2 small, along with a guide leaflet with some hairstyles to try. Can't wait to try these a whirl.

Malibu LIP CARE BALM

 

I am a lip balm fiend. You know that question:

"If you could take one beauty item to a desert island what would it be?" 


My answer would be lip balm. I can't leave the house without. I am plagued with dry chappy sore lips if I don't use it. When I saw these babies I was like yes, having those plus the word Malibu sent me to a hot beach far away from this cold horrid weather, along with a glass of Malibu and pineapple to keep me company...mm. They have SPF 30 which is fantastic if the weather decides to get hot, and come in 3 yummy flavours, Tropical, Watermelon & Vanilla. There is no distinguishing colours in the lip balm themselves just the scent. Love these :)

Clearasil DAILY CLEAR Wash & Mask

 

A wash and a mask, well hello dual purpose beauty, This has Avocado & Pomegranate extracts and smells quite fresh. I haven't had a chance to use this yet so I'l update this when I have.

Thanks for reading
