Victoria's Secret Haul

Hi Everyone!

Today I have a little beauty haul to share with you. I feel like it's been ages since we have done this properly as my spending habits have really improved due to me now saving for a house deposit. However I am not completely recovered from my beauty addiction and splurged on three items from Ebay, so for what it's worth I did get a really good deal on them. 

The items I bought are the Victoria's Secret Midnight Dare body cream, body lotion and fragrance mist. I have bought tonnes of stuff from VS before, all beauty though as I don't think they do any clothing or lingerie in my size. It's such a shame really because I like the style, maybe I should do a "what I would have spent" post on them. Leave me a comment below if you would like to see that and I will happily oblige.

But anyway, let's go on to my first impressions for each item I got.

Firstly, I wanted to compare the difference between the body cream and the body lotion. In the photo below I have swatched the cream at the top with the lotion at the bottom and you can tell that the consistencies are different. The cream is thicker with a more souffle, body butter like texture and the lotion is a lot more light. I got both because I want to use them on different areas, the cream is perfect for areas where I really need that deep moisturising effect such as dry skin on my knees or elbows. The lotion will be used as more of an all over body lotion particularly on my legs to make them all nice and smooth but with a non greasy finish. Both smell incredible, the raspberry and sandalwood scent is nice and strong and really fresh and fruity. 

This leaves us to talk about the fragrance mist. I have been using the fragrance mists for years now as they are always guaranteed to smell amazing and they have a very similar effect to perfume however are cheaper and come in bigger bottles which is always a bonus. I have worn this body mist to work over the past week and got compliments on it, mostly from the girls as I would definitely say it's more of a fun girly scent than a really deep musky one which guys tend to react better to in my experience. I have no idea why that is! 

Overall, I am absolutely chuffed with the three products, VS never disappoint with their skincare range and once I use these up I will probably get another scent to try out.

I hope you liked this post, if you want to see more hauls or beauty posts just let me know below in the comments.

Thanks for reading!

Love Sally X
