London beauty haul!

Hello everyone!
I'm soooo excited because I've been to London for the weekend and it was so amazing! Seriously, the best city I've ever visited. My brother and I had great time together and we saw many different areas, such as Soho,Chinatown, Kensington, South Bank, Westminster and everything was so beautiful! Seriously, I want to live there, I'm in love with the underground... :)
While I was in Italy I planned where to go shopping and I even asked you in this post what I should get, so let's start with this beauty haul!!

 First, I went to Boots, oh my gosh this is the best store I've ever seen: offers, awesome beauty brands, lovely women ready to help you! I immediately get lost (ahaha) but I asked for help :D I saw Soap & glory and I took the Flake away body scrub (thank you Olivia for your suggestion!), which smells heavenly! 

I started sniffing every product and I fell in love with the Clean on me, this is... fricking amazing! I could not get the full size because of the luggage weight so I took 2 smaller bottles :)

 Oh, let's just stare at it. Isn't it a masterpiece? The Origins stand was gorgeous but I decided to get only this little treasure (Super spot Remover) because it's not cheap at all!!

 And then, here it comes: the concealer everyone talks about and everyone loves. I finally got my hands on the Collection Lasting Perfection concealer and I do not regret. It gives the most flawless finish to my skin!

Bourjois is not available in Italy so I couldn't waste the chance :) I had my eyes on the Flower Perfection foundation for a while and I love it! I immediately used it and... what else can I say, big thumbs up!

 I got the Healthy mix Serum foundation for my mum, because she asked me to get something for her too, so I decided to take this, which promises radiant skin (She loved it, yes!)

 After all these 'goodies', my second stop was The Body shop, it's so cute! The girls are lovely and nice! After staring at all their products, I decided to get the Banana Shampoo and conditioner (which were part of their bestsellers): I can't wait to try them!

It was love at first sniff with this little Mango body lotion, I just couldn't stop myself: 2£, I mean 2£!!!!!

And then the Coconut Body butter, I'm sure you all know this product really well :) It has an amazing, fresh and balanced smell, one of the best ever!

 To style my hair I was used to using the John Frieda Frizz Ease Serum, which was full of chemical ingredients such as Petrolatum and Paraffin. After seeing Essiebutton's post about her hair routine I thought that the Coconut oil hair shine could be a better alternative.

 I wanted to try some skincare too, but I was not sure of what to get so I picked up the Vitamin E kit: I can try basically every product to know if these agree well with my skin :)

 I know, it's early for eye creams but lately I have pretty bad dark circles and my eye contour is really dry so I got this, I will definitely try it out!

 Ta da! This is the king of my purchases! The Real Techniques Core Collection is finally here with me!! Do you remember? I put this in my Desire post (here)! I had to look at 6 Boots stores to find it!!

 This is the mythic Buffing brush.... Speechless! :)

 The detailer brush for concealer and eyes.

 The Pointed foudation brush, interesting!

 The contour brush!

 My last beauty stop was Lush. Since I have this brand in Italy too, I only got the Honey Trap lip balm: 
BEST BALM EVER! I had to repurchase because I ran out of it and it costs less than in Italy!

One little tihing! My London pen! I will use it to remember this unforgettable trip!

So that's it for my beauty haul! I know, I went a bit crazy, but I only got things that I can't find here! :)

My clothing haul will be up really soon!!
Please feel free to ask me any review of these things! I'd love to help you out!

What do you think of the products I got?
I really hope you enjoyed it!
