London drug store shopping spree

I love London! I love the architecture, the sights, the museums, the food, and the shopping. Shopping list in hand I went looking for brands and products that we can’t buy in the high street in Denmark.

On the top of my list was Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream, I simply adore it. My hands are really dry, especially in the Danish windy weather. So this hand cream was really missed in the 5 years since I moved back to Denmark. I also bought the anti-ageing version with spf 25 for the summer period.

Another product that I’ve been itching to get my hands on was Colab Dry Shampoo. I’ve been reading about it on A Model Recommends and I wanted to give it a try. I haven’t been using dry shampoos as I prefer to wash my hair on a daily basis (I know, it’s not good for my hair, but it’s a habit of mine). I got two cans; the Colab Sheer Invisible London and Colab Extreme Volume Paris. I originally wanted both in the scent London, but Superdrug didn’t have it in stock. But I do like Paris too.

I got three facial cleansers. Vitamin C+ Brighten Skin Renew Cleasing Oil from Super Facialist by Úna Brennan which I love and leaves my skin clean and still hydrated. Garnier Micellar Cleasing Water which I like too. It’s very similar to Bioderma that I’ve used for a while now. But it’s a lot more budget friendly than Bioderma. Last but not least of the cleansers is Yes to Cumbers Daily Gel Cleanser, it is really good and it smells lovely, but it’s a bit too drying for my skin. So I only use it when I really need to. But I will bring it with me on city vacation, where I feel like I want a good cleanse after a day in the a crowded city.

I found some makeup too. This will just be a short listing of names as I will write about them om my blog in the next few days. Two lip butters from Revlon in 025 Peach Parfait and 010 Raspberry Pie. Three Maybeline New York Color tattoo 24hr in 70-Metallic Pomegranate65-Pink Gold, and 35-On and on Bronze. One L’oreal Paris Color Riche L’ombre Pure eyeshadow in 601 Chameleon. And lastly Soap and Glory Archery 2 in 1 Brow Filling Pencil & Brush in the colour Hot Chocolate.

It is also my first time to present my very first Youtube video. The making of it was so strange because my accent has completely changed since I left London. Now I sound like a proper Dane when I speak English, which I never used to do before.
