Duty Free Purchases!

I escaped Ireland recently for a week and popped into the Loop on my way and then the Duty Free on the way back. There was nothing I actually needed but sure you know yourself, like a kid in a sweet shop and all that. 


Victoria's secret beauty

First up was a visit to Victoria's Secret for a body spray. I thought this would be handy for work as it's a lightweight bottle and although it's not super long lasting, it's also only €12, so I'm not going to feel guilty for coating myself in it several times a day. I went with Aqua Kiss, which contains "rain-kissed freesia and daisy". It's a lovely fresh scent, summery but not sickly sweet. I liked it so much that I picked up the matching body and hand lotion on the way back. I actually prefer this to the spray as the scent lasts longer on the skin. The next time I'm in the airport I'll be stocking up on more of these. 
Love it.
Lastly, on the way back I also picked up a Pink body spray in Sun Kissed. This is pure coconut and vanilla goodness, like Summer in a spray. Nom.

OPI base and top coat

I needed both a new base and top coat so this 3-in-1 from one of my favourite nail brands, OPI, seemed ideal. It's also a nail strengthener, which is great for the likes of me with my weak nails and so far I'm really liking it. This was around the 14/15 euro mark.

Clarins instant light natural lip perfectors

I also spotted this set of two full size Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors in the original pink and peach shades for a measly €22. One of these on their own is €18.50 so I did pretty well there. I recently ran out of the pink one and have never tried the peach so it's all coming up Millhouse. 

And that's my lot! I was as always tempted by the perfume, MAC and alcohol (although my sister in law kindly took care of the latter for me. Brandy cream for the win!) but I talked myself down! 

Are you an airport shopper too or do get too overwhelmed by all the many brands?

  5. Love the sound of the VS bits & bobs, great prices too! I'm NEVER in airports. Probably a good thing, because when we were on our Honeymoon I basically handed over every spare penny I had to Boots on the second day. And that was just me in a big Boots. Imagine me in Duty Free! Holy shit...bankruptcy!!

  6. I rarely buy from airport actually, I'm not sure why! I think it's because I fly from Shannon and the selection isn't massive there. And it's Manchester T3 that I fly from usually as well, which I haven't properly looked at as I flew from there around Christmas and the group of us were busy eating. And the other time I've gone from there I was so engrossed in a book that I didn't want to shop!
