My London 3 Item Haul

As much as possible I want to blog everyday. So far I rarely miss a day. Even if I am not feeling well (you know I am peri menopausing now, so I get really bad days once in awhile) or I am tired I still make it a point to post everyday.

My schedule is either I blog early in the morning (like today) before my day gets crazy or I do it at night (like yesterday) when I am already winding down from a hectic day.

Anyway, I don’t know if you can call this a haul since I only have 3 items. But I still want to share this with you cause it’s beauty related.

If a CVS shopping bag gets me excited, this one too!

IMG_2459If I have a personal shopper in the U.S. I also have a personal shopper in the U.K. LOL!

Seriously, Boots drugstore is the CVS in London. And there are make up drugstore brands that I like and you only find it in the U.K. or any drugstores in Europe.

One UK drugstore brand that I like is Bourjois Paris.

I used to ask Vinny to get for me when he was still studying in London. Actually, he’s not the one who buys it himself, he asks my good friend Marivic who stood as Vinny’s Guardian while he was living there.

They would meet up for lunch usually week ends and Vinny gives her my list.

But now that Vinny is no longer in London Marivic sends my goodies thru her friends that goes there for vacation or her friends that would come home to Manila for a vacation. Which is not often. But at least…

So, I still get my Boots stash. Not as often anymore, but still.

I follow mostly British YouTube Beauty Gurus.

This is my personal opinion. I find British women more hygienic than Americans. I came up with this conclusion after years of watching and observing these Beauty Gurus.

I can tell. Believe me. I am very particular with personal hygiene. I can even tell you who among the American youTube Beauty Gurus that has very bad hygiene. But of course, I am not going to mention it here. I don’t want to troll.

So, anyway….

These 3 Bourjois products that I told Marivic to buy for me are recommendations of Liza Eldridge, Celebrity Make up Artist and she also has a YouTube channel. I will link her YouTube channel and her blog below.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum | Bourjois Bronzing Powder + Highlighter | Bourjois Healthy Mix Correcting Concealer

IMG_2471Bourjois’s Healthy Mix line is made of vitamin-rich fruits. And I am crazy about fruit therapy now a days. All the skin care products I am using now are all fruit based.

This Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation is 16 hours radiance-boosting even, revived complexion. I have uneven skin tone and I also have a lot of pigmentation so I need something that’s good to even out my complexion that will last the whole day. This is also good if you’re over fatigue. It’s suppose to give you radiance and boost your complexion.

If Liza Eldridge uses this, then it must be good.

IMG_2473Bourjois Healthy Mix Correcting Concealer.

I have a lot to conceal. hahahaha. I am forever looking for good concealers.

Liza Eldridge uses this, so it must be good.

You know I am obsessed with Bronzing powders. Most British Beauty Gurus that I follow swear on this:

CollageBourjois Bronzing Powder + Highlighter.

I am so excited to use this! It smells so good. It smells like chocolates.

And here’s my bill:

IMG_2476So, for the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation and the Bourjois  Healthy Mix Concealer it’s only £14.98. 

The concealer was on sale! yay! From £7.99 it’s now £3.99. I saved £4.00. Cool.

IMG_2477And for the Bourjois Bronzing Powder + Highlighter: £7.99.

All items were below £10 each. Such a great product but so cheap. That’s why I like drugstore brands.

Marivic didn’t forget to send me my favorite chocolates!

IMG_2480Claudia and me already ate the white chocolate with Hazelnut Crisp last night!

Thanks ‘vic!

Here’s to more beautiful days ahead.


This is where you can find Liza Eldridge.

  • Hi Ms. T why don’t you try Garnier Dark Spot Corrector its amazing it really eliminates dark spot i accidentally pick it up in Boots coz I found the No. 7 one way too expensive this one is only £8. ( 3 for 2) while No. 7 is over £18 and garnier is so much better it brightens your face and eliminates dark and age spot. I will look at Bourjois Products if I’m in Boots thanks for the tip.

  • Trivia about Bourjois & Chanel makeup — they have the same owners. Some of their formulas are very similar. 🙂

  • There’s Boots in Thailand. It’s like 7-11 there, you find it in most places
