Priceline Haul (with the Hair Goodie Bag GWP)

Wednesday 26 February 2014

Because I'm a sucker for a "Gift With Purchase" I couldn't resist picking up the Priceline Hair Goodie bag the other week.

Luckily I actually did need to pick up hair products, so the GWP came at a good time. 

I went into Priceline not knowing exactly what I was going to pick up but I knew that I needed some dry shampoo, a hair mask and a leave in conditioner.

I ended picking up...

Toni & Guy Cleanse Dry Shampoo x 2

I ended up buying this after Jodi from Goo Roo Beauty raved about it on her youTube channel, and I've loved it ever since. It's a bit more pricier than Batiste but I think it's worth it. Adelaide weather has been awful lately (a couple of heatwaves followed by lots of rain) so I've been using a LOT of dry shampoo. 

These were on sale for $10 each so I picked up 2. 

Edward Beale Argan Oil Leave In Spray Conditioner

I use a spray leave in conditioner on my hair everyday to both help the heath of my hair and to help detangle my hair. 

I've been using the Organix Coconut Leave In Nourishing Milk, which I love. But the spray mechanism isn't working, so I'll use the EB spray first and then reuse the bottle for the Organix spray. 

L'Oreal EverCreme Deep Nourishing Masque

And finally I got this hair mask as I use one every week to help hydrate my dry and damaged hair. My hair is currently half natural and half bleached (I've got an ombre effect and from chin level down, my hair is blonde). It has been a while since I've bleached it (maybe about 8 months) but because my hair had 6 years of monthly beaching my ends are quite dry. I go through hair masks quite quickly so even though I have 2 half used masks left, I know I'll need this very soon.

I've heard some great things from bloggers and youTubers about the EverCreme range. I've tried the EverStrong mask and loved that. I was so tempted to buy the shampoo and conditioner but I already have an abundance of shampoos and conditioners so I skipped it for now.

I didn't realise that this was on sale (30%) as when I was instore as they didn't have any sale signs on any of the Ever ranges. Because I also bought other products (not hair related) neither the sales assistant or I realised that my haircare wasn't over the $40 to qualify for the goodie bag. 

And here's the goodie bag... 

There are some products that I'm excited to use (like the bun maker, masks from John Frieda and Pantene, the JF Frizz Ease product and also the dry shampoo) and others that I'm not really interested (like the rest). 

I like that they give the coupons, as it's hard to have a hair dye colour that will suit everyone.

Check out Jasmine's post (here) where she goes into more detail about the goodie bag.

I also picked up some make up and skincare. Not everything here was picked up on the same day, but it was all hauled within the last 3 weeks.

I love Antipodes and was excited to see 2 limited edition gift sets in the last Priceline catalogue. I got the version which has the Joyous Protein-Rich Night Replenish Serum (10ml) and the Avocado Pear Nourishing Night Cream (15ml). Antipodes is on the higher end of natural skincare (think Jurlique or L'Occitane prices) so I'd love for the range to be sold at Priceline so I can use my quarter vouchers to get more!

These MNY by Maybelline eyeshadows had been out for a few weeks, but I didn't really notice them until I saw them on sale. They're usually on sale for $3.00, but was half price. I picked up 3 colours.

There are a lot more colours available online (here) than I found instore. I liked these 3 colours so much that I picked up 4 more on Monday. 

I'll have swatches up very soon!!

Maybelline have a few new products so I picked up the new Fit Me foundation stick and a new Bold Matte lipstick. They didn't have many testers for the lipsticks, so I googled images of them and picked up the colour based on the swatches. 

I also picked up the Maybelline Baby Lips after seeing it in a bloggers FOTD post.

A product that had been on my wishlist for a while is the Physicians Formula Bronze Booster.  I like that it has 4 colours in the pan, so no matter your skintone, there's a bronze to suit you. 

I was really excited to see the Nuxe Reve de Miel lip balm on the shelves of Priceline. I've been wanting this for a while but up until now it was only available online.

It's quite thick so I use this more in the morning and before bedtime. It's beautiful on the lips. After using this, my lips feel soft and smooth. 

I really hope that Priceline stocks more of the range as I want to try out their skincare. 

Revlon recently released their new Parfumerie scented nail polishes and Priceline had an introductory price of 2 for $20 (they are normally $15.95 each). I had trouble picking out only 2 colours, but ended up picking "Beachy" and "Wintermint." These polishes have an inbuilt perfume in them that's activated once they've dried. 

"Wintermint" isn't a colour that I would normally pick, but there was just something about it. I couldn't put it back on the shelf. "Beachy" is a beautiful bronze that will be perfect all year round. 

The last thing that I picked up was a Palmer's gift pack from Christmas. I have wanted this for a while and just couldn't say no to it since it was less than $12 for 4 products (it's RRP is $29.95!!).

It contains a moisturiser, serum, eye cream and night cream. I've used the night cream before and it's amazing.

What Priceline goodie bag do you want to see next? Skincare or make up? What brands or products would you love to see in it?
