Boots No 7 £5 voucher - What do you normally spend yours on?

I quite fancy trying the Poppy King lipstick range myself, though I could be really sensible and invest in a new eyeliner brush with it.. Not sure of its quality though so I'll have a look next time I'm in Boots.

Make up brushes

They usually include ruby and milly in the no7 offer so I either get an eyeshadow brush (can never have too many and they are only £5) or the No7 eye make up remover (which is very good!!).

I've never been able to use it as my skin reacts to so much stuff that i play safe & buy Clinique.

I wish they'd stop giving my vouchers i can't use Sad

usually cleanser or facial wipes or the odd nail varnish. I don't ever like their lipstick colours, or the nail varnish unless it is vvv dark or clear. their lipsticks are odd , aren't they? and the eyeshadow too. Or is it me?

Nail varnish
And I always regret it as imo it is poor coverage and little staying power. Then i go and do it all over again Confused

Their tinted moisturiser is quite nice
mascara not bad either

brushes is a good idea

They also do packs of 3 cleansing cloths for £5 - not exciting in the least but can never have too many and if they're free...

I use Boots no 7 cleanser, exfoliator and moisturiser so usually just use it towards that - however, if I do want to treat myself, a nail varnish (although the range of colours is a bit bland) or mascara if I need some.

I have spent them on nail varnish a couple of times. Last time I used it on an eyelash curler.

Are they giving them out again at the moment then?

DS loves the nail varnish displays with all the colours, so I let him choose us one. He went for a classy dark pink that got us a lot of compliments Grin

I nearly always buy their facial wipes. I also like their eyeshadows.

Facial wipes here too. I don't use them every day ( I try to be good) but they are fab for when I am very tired or travelling.

the No7 eyeliner brush is pretty good, and the foundation brush is excellent - Lisa Eldridge uses one in her online tutorials.

The lipsticks ARE weird, aren't they? I love a lipstick but none of the No7 colours ever call out to me. The only one I like is that orangey-red Siren.

the skin renewal microdermabrasion scrubs (face version and the body one) are fab and last for ages. leave skin so smooth (but go gently to begin with!)

they do a smoky eyeliner (looks like a liquid liner but is actually a powder) is lovely too. comes in black, brown and shimmery grey.

oh and their concealer brush is fab too. looks like a mini foundation brush.

Shower gel for dp or make up brushes. I hate No 7. I always used to get Ruby and Millie stuff but think they've stopped doing it now.

@wildfig, glad it's not just me. I love make up and browsing all the different ranges, but I have only ever bought and liked 2 No 7 lippies, both v similar colours, a kind of nude. I might invest in the dermabrasion stuff though, it has good reviews

They do a shower gel thats usually with the bath products on a seperate aisle.

Think it's about £8 not worth it but smells ok for £3 with the voucher so usually get a couple for holidays

Foundation brush is vv good

I like their exquisite curl mascara

The illuminator is good (designed by Lisa Eldridge)

And I got a great slatey blue/grey matt eyeshadow pallette there recently
