USA Beauty Buys


As you may already know, many beauty items - makeup, skincare, fragrances are much much cheaper in the States. So in order to save myself a few pennies and also treat myself to a few things I wouldn't usually be able to get my hands on - I picked up some items whilst on holiday.

Clinique Acne Solutions Foundation - this stuff in the UK is actually called Anti-Blemish Solutions and I've been wanting to pick up a bottle of this for a long time. I've tried a sample before and loved it so fingers crossed it works for me. I may do a full review on this in the future too.

Korres Lip Butter - I've heard great things about these lip butters and now I can see why! They are so soft and creamy leaving your lips moisturised and not sticky. Plus is smells like pudding.

Chloe Rollerball Perfume - In the US, especially Sephora, these rollerball perfumes are everywhere. We just can't seem to get hold of them in the UK and any we do have are limited. It's a great way to try out new perfumes or to have a travel sized version of your favourite. This Chloe perfume is new to me but I love it! It's  more fruity than floral which suits me down to the ground.

Bath & Body Works Fragrance Mist -We need a Bath & Body Works in the UK!! This place is amazing. There were SO many fragrances to choose from I had no idea where to start - but I went with this fresh cotton scent which is lovely to spritz on throughout the day.

Bath & Body Works Hand Gel - These anti bacterial hand gels are full of little beads that burst and disappear on your skin leaving behind a wonderful scent! I got this one in fresh apple as I love the smell of apples and my hands smell and feel really clean after using it.

Anthropologie Hand Cream - Anthropologie as well as selling clothes and accessories is also full of unique soaps, perfumes and creams. I had to pick up this mini hand cream to keep in my handbag which soaks into the skin without making them feel greasy so it's perfect for everyday use.
