Its been a while since I have flexed my shopping muscles and got down to business! After a much deserved spending ban, it came to a point that I actually needed to buy a few things and My Gawd it felt good! Heres what I got..

As I mentioned in this post, my Avene Thermal Spring Water breathed it last recently so I immediately placed an order for a new one, and while I was at it my eyes fell on the Cleanance Gel Cleanser which has been amply praised by bloggers and promptly it went onto the cart. I haven’t started using it but will eventually let you know how it fares.

Another product which I used up (yay!) was my Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair and although I am probably going to repurchase that anyway, I thought I’ll try the much lauded Midnight Recovery Concentrate by Kiehl’s. I LOVE it! I had used couple of samples in the past and had really liked it but nothing can beat the effects of a continuos use. I have been using it every night on its own for the past week and I think this is going to be a staple! My Nuxe Reve de Miel was also scraped and polished off recently so a repurchase was in order! Do you sense an empties post coming your way? Yes it is!

Amazon.in was running a discount on the Real Techniques brushes and I got my fill! I have been itching to get the Multi Task brush and the Setting brush for the longest time and as soon as I saw them on a major 25% discount I had to grab them! The Multi Task brush came in a small travel set which has two other brushes which I am eager to try! Now that the pictures are up I can finally start using them!

Not technically a haul as these were sent to me by the NARSissist team for being a die hard Nars fan! Oh yes through and through! Pretty excited to finally try a Nars nail polish and that color has parttty written all over it! Its called Gold Viper and its part of their limited edition 3.1 Philip Lim collection. The eyeshadow duo called Jardin Perdu is part of the Nars Fall collection. You can check out swatches and review of these here and here.

Nike Free run 5.0 aqua blue and orange accents

Finally, the most exciting purchase! I have wanted a pair of Free Runs for years and finally made the splurge. Just look at the gorgeous Aqua blue and bright orange.. Gah! I love it! An all black ensemble and these is going to be SO cool or chic? Cannot wait to take them out for a run!

That is all for the new things! Let me know if you’ve tried any of it and liked?

Have a GREAT weekend everyone!

    Ooh what a fun haul! I’d love to know what your thoughts are on the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate – I’ve been eyeing that up myself. Also, how are you liking your Nike Frees? I think they are so freaking comfortable!

      Thanks Camey! I love them! In fact I had no idea it came with arch support which I need because flat foot! The color is so bright I can literally blind people with it in daylight! lol! 😀

    Love the beauty products but the Free Runs have really caught my eye! As winter is kicking in (and I previously never ran, I used to only swim but now I’ve also taken up running) I went out this weekend to get some new winter running gear. I think my running shoes are beginning to get old and warn out, so I’m keeping an eye out for what I should get next (I suppose in a few months). Yours are gorgeous, those colours can only make you want to jump out and go for a run!

    • Divya

      I did see your update on Insta! :-) I hope you get better soon and can start running! I am occupied with work related things lately so haven’t been able to get much workout but hopefully will be done soon and can finally wear these shoes!

      • Sofia

        Well I did do the stupidity yesterday of running up in the mountains behind Barcelona… It didn’t get rid of my nearly cold (lol) but it did put to the test my new gear, which I think was warm enough!

    Nice haul. Divya! Seems like you had some pre-Christmas shopping fun 😀 So do you think that you’ll stick to the Midnight Recovery Concentrate by Kiehl’s from now on? Or will you buy the ANR serum again?

    • Divya

      Hey Melissa! This is far from Christmas shopping ha ha! I am definitely splurging a bit more later! 😉 I really like the Kiehl’s right now, in fact the most difference that I saw was on the pores on my nose which has never happened! I’ll finish this bottle and then decide which one to get! :-)

  6. Xuvious

    I’ve been thinking of trying the Avene Thermal Water. Your post has served as a bit of a nudge! 😉
    Love the Kiehl’s MRC as well, a staple for me too. :)

  7. Shana PFR

    Love the sneakers! I have been itching to Nike Frees!

    You picked up some of my favorite RT brushes :) The eye brush in that set is perfect for blending out cream shadow, and I hope you agree that the multi use brush is great in every way!

    • Divya

      Hi Shana! Thanks for the tip! I have a lot of cream shadows will try using them with this brush! You should definitely get a pair for Free Runs.. wait for Black Friday 😉

  8. Agata

    I love the Nikes! I think they are the best sports shoes out there! I have all of these real techniques brushes and I love them! I did try the Avene Thermal water in the past but I didn’t feel like it did much more me. Nice haul though, enjoy your new goodies!

    • Divya

      Hi Agata! Thank you! I am glad I waited for these colors to appear! 😀 I have been using my Avene a lot but in combination of a few other things and somehow the whole concoction is working really well! So now I don’t want to change lol! :-)

    Shopping after a spending ban must’ve been so liberating :p. Your purchases look great!
    I love most of the Real Techniques brushes, my favorites being the blush & the buffing brushes. The blush brush (just tried saying that 5 times in a row) is really good for a light sweep of color. I’m contemplating getting the MAC 116 – are there better ones out there?

    • Divya

      Oh yes it felt good! :-) Besides I tried and contained myself in a budget! 😉 I have the blush brush and love it with powders! :-) I think MAC 116 is good but not outstanding.. the shape is great from precise application but you would be left wanting some more! I am in love with the Multi Task brush right now.. its exactly what I wanted my 116 to be! 😀

    Love those Free Runs! The colors are amazing!

    I have tried that Avene cleanser years ago, but it broke me out REALLY bad. I don’t know if they have reformulated in the meantime, but I hope you’ll have better luck than I do! Great picks from NARS! Would love to see both on you!

    • Divya

      Thank you Sunny!! 😀 I love them too! Pretty adventurous on my part though! 😛 I am usually pretty toned down with colors but not this one! :-) I hope that cleanser doesn’t break me out! Pretty scary!

  11. Diana P.

    Another haul, yes!!! Great picks as always, I’m so excited about the Nars products in particular!!! I was using the same Avene gel as a teenager, but I can’t say I loved it that much, because of my acne prone skin… A mint soap is more effecitve for me now, but for beautiful skin girls, like you, this cleanser is perfect and not drying at all! 😀
    Happy weekend! <3

      Hey Diana! Thank you thank you! I didn’t buy too much and I am pretty happy about that given my shopping habits! 😛 I read some positive thoughts on that cleanser and thought it’ll be good when I have breakouts besides its so much cheaper than the rest that I use! 😛 Hope it works! 😀 Hope you are having a great weekend so far! <3 :-)
