I'm popping over from Oz and was literally going to start a post of the same nature. I miss Boots On my list I have: Soap & glory foot file Revlon lip butter Max factor 2000 calorie mascara Olbas oil Stila foundation (tho really want a more 'chemical free' brand?) And Butter London nail varnish (Can get some of these over here but so much cheaper in UK!)
Try some Liz Earle products - check online for the Boots stores you can buy from - rec hot cloth polish Natural Source are my fave shower gels Check out Lush stores LilyLolo mineral make up [mail order only I think] yy to any Neal's Yard really
That's funny. I've been living here for 15 years preparing to move back to Canada and trying to think about what things I need to stock up on before we leave.....weirdly Olbas oil also figures on my list. Bodmin Pill you can't buy Olbas oil in Canada now can you?
Not sure if you can get them where you are but regular brands i live are: Soap & glory products (don't bother with their cosmetics) (boots) Barry m (ESP nail varnish) Urban decay (shadows&eye liners) Liz Earle Neal's yard Barbara daly (I think that's the name) in tesco
Weleda and yes to carrots are v nice, want to check out organic surge too. I didn't release butter was American, I like the idea of less chemical filled nail polish, but it's $20 here so I get sucked into the $6 Rimmel ones! Ta for the thread bod Will defo check out chemist.co.uk, thanks May also have to purchase a perfume in 'duty free' - does that even make much difference these days?!
I would get kerestase products like their hair masks (really expensive here in Canada). I also really miss clarins which is reasonable in the UK. I used to love their tonic shower concentrate and body polisher - smells like a spa. welded a you can buy in health shops in Canada. I would also buy cheap makeup brushes - really miss Boots own brand makeup brushes which are about 5 to 8 pounds. I would have to pay 22 canadian dollars for the same brush at shoppers drug mart or 26 dollars at bodyshop. I also used to like avene and roc which are at boots - avenue is really expensive here.
