USA Beauty Haul!

It's been nearly a month since my trip to San Francisco! I canny believe it! I had an incredible time - it was my first ever trip to the USA and I basically ate all the food and bought all the things. Obv.

One of my most anticipated stops for beauty was Credo Beauty A.K.A Heaven. I had quite the list for myself, and for a few other people too, and in the end I got what is pictured above. There was much deliberation, and I wanted 1000 more things of course, but I'm not made of money ;)

I have wanted to try Marie Veronique for so, so long, so I headed straight for her shelf and picked up the Pre + Probiotic Mist. A hydrating coconut water mist with a microbiotic complex and many other goodies. I am loving it so far!
I also needed a new eyeliner and from their vast selection the Antonym Cosmetics Eye Pencil in Noir stood out to me the most; it's buttery soft, black as can be and vegan. It's a dream! I will be so sad when it runs out as there isn't a UK stockist... yet??
I did want to try the Ultra-Hydrating Shampoo from Acure, but as it was out of stock I thought I would try the Clarifying Shampoo instead. I am loving this so far, it has made my hair so shiny after every use. I would still prefer to try the hydrating to benefit my bleached ends more, but will have to order from iherb in the new year, and I'll try the conditioner too!
Lastly, I picked up two travel sized charcoal deodorants from Kaia Naturals. I was going to get a full size but when I saw the adorable minis I couldn't resist because then I could try two scents instead of one! I chose Lime Mint and Juicy Bamboo.

And that's all! I did forget a few things, but I was so overwhelmed and having good chats with everyone in the store, so all is forgiven ;)

I also stopped at Sephora, obviously, and made a beeline for Bite. I wasn't sure what I wanted but ended up coming away with a Matte Lip Creme Crayon in the shade Fraise, a beautiful red with orange undertones. Not the best for making your teeth look whiter, but I love it none the less. Red scares me, but I think I've been quite brave wearing this regularly ;)



I got the ILIA Mini Tinted Lip Conditioner set from Anthropologie for 30% off! Thanks black Ffriday weekend deals ;) This set comes with a different colour to the more expensive mini set that comes with a purse, and the tiny lipsticks are so freakin' adorable.

I then picked up the Herbivore Blue Clay Soap from an Urban Outfitters, as I'm about to run out of my Osmia soap and this was $10 cheaper.

When in Wholefoods I finally came across Andalou Naturals and had to pick up some of their sheet masks because they sound so good. I can't wait to use them, but the single use-ness of a sheet mask upsets me - what if it's utterly awesome and I can't get them again?? I also found more Acure haircare so I could have got the hydrating shampoo after all! I should have bought it, silly me, but instead I picked up the Deep Root Conditioner which I've only used once so far and it seem's to be quite good!.

And that's all! The rest of my money went on vegan snacks to bring home, lots of those little seaweed snacks (WHY are they not an easily accessible thing over here?!) chocolate and funny flavoured crisps. Oh and I bought an oven glove and a hat, too.
