Beauty Shopping with Chemist 4 U

I am a bit of an impulse shopper and when I am browsing, researching a post or just looking for inspiration I often end up buying things I've read about on blogs or just randomly buy things I think I could like.
Beauty Shopping with Chemist 4 U
Chemists 4 U is one of the sites I have gone to on more than one occasion because you can find some absolute bargains with some products being much better priced. It is also as the name suggests an online pharmacy and it has the option of getting quite a few services such as the electronic prescription service.

I love that the website is split into sections so you can find pretty much everything you need for numerous ailments. There is also a huge range of products to discover and lots of incredible brands featured within the beauty section and I was kindly given a store credit to the value of £30 to spend on cosmetics and it took me quite a long time to decide what I would really like to try but in the end I did manage to choose three items that I had read a lot about.

The first item was Juicy Couture Dirty English for Him.  Those of you who are not aware, I am married to BeautyKingUK and he has a bit of an obsession with aftershaves, so much so he has more than one option for every day of the month!  So to add to his collection, a brand he owns nothing from the brand. I wasn't too sure how this scent would work with the mister but he actually really liked it and am sure he will do a full post on it over on his own blog.

Dirty English opens with opens with peppered mandarin, blue cypress, Calabrian bergamot, cumin and cardamom which pakcs quite a punch and it is an instantly warming scent. The heart notes of marjoram and black leather accords are accompanied with sandalwood, Atlas cedar and vetiver root which are incredible together and brings the scent into a woody Citrus stance before the while base notes of agarwood, ebony, black moss and amber musk settle the fragrance.  Priced at £16.99 here, this is a great fragrance for those who are a fan of intriguing bottles and long lasting scents.

My second item comes from Elizabeth Arden, one of my favourite skincare brands, but instead of skincare I went for Lip Tint in shade Plum as it was the one which stood out to me the most and I do love a berry lip.   This Lip Tint has been described as being skincare for the lips and I am sure everyone has come across the Eight Hour collection from Elizabeth Arden by now.

Enriched with emollients, protective sunscreen (SPF 15) and vitamin E, this Lip Tint glides onto the lips leaving behind a hint of colour as you swipe and what I love about it is how lovely it feels on the lips. I was expecting it to be greasy and slightly tacky to the touch, but it is neither of those. Priced at £9.49.

The Final item I chose comes from Maybelline and again is a product I have seen people rave about. The Fit Me Matte + Poreless Powder. It contains no oils or waxes and is said to give a natural coverage that leaves skin the way it was meant to be…fresh, breathing, flawless.

For a highstreet powder, this is actually quite good, I haven't tried anything from Maybelline in some time now but have really liked using this and I do sometimes mix it with my setting powder as well.  Priced at just £2.89 I wouldn't have minded too much if this product wasn't as good as I had read it was, but it is.

I think Chemist 4 U is a great service whether you use it for prescriptions, advice or like me to grab a bargain.  Have you tried the site?
