I’m always grateful when the sales assistant hands me a €7.50 off voucher at the till in Boots. However, the voucher is for No.7 products. I’m really not a fan (although their lipstick in Starshell is one of my favourites).
When I was in college I seemed to be in Boots a few times a week (god knows why) and one term I had an endless supply of No7 vouchers. I actually used to struggle to find products to buy. I hated the eyeshadows, eye liners, lipliners and glosses so I often bought skincare items. A few years on and really nothing has changed. The same weak products in the range are still weak.
Anyway, I found myself with three vouchers this week and not a clue what to spend them on. As I mentioned, I’m not a fan of the brand in general. I find it very over-priced and many of the products remind me of their 17 range but with fancier packaging. I find the pigmentation of the eyeshadows and glosses disappointing and the formulations of the eye liners and brow pencils just don’t cut it for me.
That being said, I was determined to find a product to spend the voucher on :)
I swatched and tested a few bits n’ pieces and settled on two items…
No7 Quick Cover Concealer and No7 Nail Polish in Pink Grapefruit. (Reviews and swatches to follow)
I just couldn’t find anything to spend the third voucher on. I was tempted by an oil shower wash but left flustered. I would love to hear what you have picked up with your vouchers in the past or recently. Any recommendations?
