Hola all. So today is the first day of my mini break and what kind of break would it be if I didn't pick a couple of things up that I'd been eyeing up for a while.

So, I picked up the Olay Total Effects Wake Up Wonder moisturiser. I got a sample size version of this a few weeks ago and I have been very impressed with it.
I always used to see Olay as more of a 'middle age' brand, but as soon as I used this I noticed an instant difference. My skin and especially around my eyes looked brighter and more awake. It's also lovely and mooisturising but without being greasy.
I first looked in Tesco for this and it was priced at £13.99. I checked on my phone how much it was in other places and it was £9.99 in Superdrug. Brilliant, I thought until I looked on the Boots website and found it at £7.99! So.. I went to Boots and picked it up there.

Then I picked up two of these bad boys, Umberto Giannini Backcomb In A Bottle. As soon as I read the word 'backcomb' I was sold! I love to have a little lift in my roots but because my hair is so fine I find it so hard to without backcombing the hell out of it, which as everyone knows isn't ideal for your hair. This apparently is supposed to give the backcombing effect without all the actual backcombing! Mega. I haven't tried this yet, but when I do I'll be sure to do a review. These are on offer in Boots - 2 for £7.50 so I thought with the money that I save from the Olay, I'd get these.
