I picked this body scrub up the other day when I was mooching around Sainsbury's. I saw that Good Things was on offer with 1/3 off, so as well as picking up some of their face wipes, I also treated myself to this. For £3.50 I figured you can't go too bad.
Now I like my scrubs to be nice and gritty, the coarser the better in my book. The Soothing Exfoliating Scrub is not coarse, it is not gritty. It is much more like a cream with little bits in. This doesn't mean I haven't enjoyed using it. It leaves my skin feeling super smooth and soft, and as all Good Things products do, it smells divine. This was a great product to use after I went a little red in the sun over the weekend. It calmed my skin and stopped me scratching, and my skin felt pleasantly soothed after.
This is a loveky body scrub if you're only after a light scrub, or indeed have sensitive skin that needs soothing. It ks available from Boots, Superdrug and Sainsbury's for £4.99 but it's on offer in Boots for £3.33 at the moment!

Now I'll be honest here, I'm not a massive Topshop fan. I have precisely one piece of clothing from Topshop, and rarely, if ever go in, even to have a browse. I find the clothes are too expensive (I'm on a pretty small budget these days) and being rather larger than I would like, I've stopped buying clothes at the moment.
However, I do like to pop in when the sales are on! And seeing as I had a £10 voucher from my sister as a birthday present burning a hole in my purse, I trolloped over to see what they had.
This is what I got, all for the lovely price of £11 - bargain hunter Queen Steph!
Bottom row: Sunglasses case £1, baked eyeshadow £2, Gloss Stick in Glisten £2, and a notebook £3.
I'd been on the look out for some ringbinders for a little while now, as I am massive geek and like to tear out and keep all my favourite articles, celeb interviews, hair and beauty how to's, all that kind of stuff from magazines, and I wanted to file them away nicely so I can go back to them and use them, instead of them just lying on my coffee table in an ever growing pile!
The sunglasses case is a lovely floral pattern and it's huge too which is great as I'm actually planning to use it as a case for my hairbrush. It normally ends up floating around the bottom of my bag getting all kinds of dirty from the little bits of fluff and rubbish that live there, so I thought a nice sunglasses case would be a great way of keeping it clean when it's in my bag.
This is the eyeshadow with flash.
Now the Gloss Stick is possibly my favourite. I bought mine in 'Glisten' which on the colour sticker looks like quite a bright pink. I was a little unsure that it would suit me, but I thought I'll get it anyway. After unwrapping it and having a look I'm actually quite pleasantly surprised.
Here's the bullet with flash and without:
Let's have some swatches:
So there we go lovelies, sorry it's such a pic heavy, long post - I got a bit excited!

Firstly, thank you to all of you who have followed & are reading my little blog - it means a lot! This blog has been a long time coming - secretly this is my second attempt. I've made it a big New Year's resolution to get this blog off the ground & really get into the habit of posting regularly & maintaining it.
Just to keep you all interested, I've got posts on my amazing Topshop haul - I got 7 items for £11! I've also got posts on YSL, Accessorize and, even though it's way gone now, a post on my Christmas nails because they were just so pretty.
So, I hope you're all as excited as I am for what's to come in the future for Beauty Daze and I hope you keep reading :)
