Small Asda Haul

So here is another random supermarket haul. Just a few bits of make up, skincare and jewellery I picked up at Asda one night last week. By the way, for any American readers, I think Asda is basically the same thing as Walmart. I'm not actually sure cause I've never been to a Walmart (or anywhere in America for that matter) but I know Asda is part of the Walmart 'family'.

Gold Necklace - £4

The first thing I got was this gold necklace. It's a bit different to the normal style of necklace I would go for, but I really like it and it was a bargain. If you remember my New Look Wishlist post I did in March, I included a couple of short, chunky necklaces. Although this one isn't really 'chunky' it is quite big for a short necklace (Am I making sense?).

St. Ive's Apricot Scrub (Blemish Fighting) - £3.60 

I first tried this product a couple of years ago when it was the old packaging and I really liked it. I repurchased it quite a few times in a row and it was part of my regular skincare routine. I never used it every single day as I think because it's a scrub it would be a bit too harsh, but I did use it 2/3 times a week. For some reason, I just got out of the habit of buying it but recently I've missed it so I'm looking forward to having it as part of my routine again.

Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturiser -  £3

This is another product I've tried before. I'm not really too fussy when it comes to moisturiser. My skin isn't really sensitive at all so I've never had a problem with any moisturisers I've tried in the past. I remember liking this when I used to have it so thought I'd just get it again. Also I like that it's oil-free so it doesn't leave my skin feeling too greasy.

George Bronzer - No. 1 Radiant - £3.99

The next thing I got was this Bronzer from George. I got it in No. 1 Radiant. I'm not sure if there are other shades but this was the only one available in the store I was in. I tried this yesterday and my first impressions are okay. I did find it quite hard to blend in though and I had to work at it quite a bit to get a more subtle look but this might be because I am really pale. I think I'll definitely still use it though. I'll just need to make sure I only use a little bit at a time and do plenty of blending.

Blistex Raspberry Lemonade Blast Lip Balm - £1.74

I love trying new lipcare products. I have far too many but when I see kind of different 'flavours' like this I just can't help myself. I love sweet and fruity lip products so thought 'Raspberry Lemonade Blast' would be a good one to have. I am always buying new lip balms. I use them constantly and because I carry them everywhere I seem to lose them a lot and never actually finish them.

Gold Watch - £12

And finally, I got this little 'antiquey' looking gold watch. I just love the design of this and think it's so pretty. I don't wear a watch every day but I think this will be a nice accessory to wear sometimes and as I've said before I much prefer gold jewellery to silver and this will go with a lot of stuff I have.

Have you picked up any goodies recently?

Also, on a slightly random note, did anyone watch the first episode of Britain's Got Talent on Saturday? One act that seems to have really caught everyone's attention was Attraction's shadow dance. It is an absolutely stunning and emotional performance.  If you haven't already seen this act, I highly recommend you go and watch it (but have a tissue at the ready).

You can see it on YouTube by clicking here.

Thanks for reading.


  1. Lovely necklace! And when you use that scrub, is it harsh in any way? I can see it being harsh for everyday but even once a week does it still feel harsh?


    1. Hey :) I don't find it to be harsh if I only use it a couple of times a week. My skin isn't sensitive though so other people may find it too harsh that often. xx
