Celebrating 50 Years of Boots Northern Ireland


It's hard to believe that Boots has been going for 50 years in Northern Ireland! That's almost twice as long as I've been on the earth and even longer than my mum who doesn't turn 50 until next year!

I have always adored Boots. It definitely started my pharmacy obsession as a child. No 7 tan was a huge feature of my childhood - so much so that my mother used to apply it to my pasty white legs for PE in primary school! My early teens featured a lot of Seventeen and Barry M makeup but now at 24, I've turned to a few different brands to help keep me looking my best. I've picked three products that I'm loving from Boots at the moment that I highly recommend. 

I've been using this product to help combat my post acne breakout skin. Coming in at £60, it's definitely an investment product but a worthwhile one in my eyes. I tried a sample of this before I bough it and saw results the following day - it's THAT good! This has helped to make my feel more nourished and also has helped my general skin texture - the redness, the acne scars and exciting breakouts. It truly is a wonder product that I couldn't speak more highly of. 

This is a recent discovery and it has slowly worked its way into my everyday routine. This is the perfect under eye concealer. It's has lots of luminosity in it with a light coverage to hide the under eye circles. The greatest reason I return to this is the fact is doesn't crease - concealer miracle! 

Before we even start on the product, how cool is this packaging? No7 Lash Impact is one of the ranges best selling mascaras. With a huge wand that helps to separate lashes (and works very well on bottom lashes) and gives lots of volume, this mascara is the perfect everyday companion. One coat provides enough volume and length for the office but when multiple coats are applied, the formula remains glossy, not clumpy! A great mascara for all occasions. 

Happy 50th Birthday Boots! I also have to give a shout out to my local store (Boots Abbeycentre). Through many operations and different forms of sickness, their pharmacy team have always looked after me and my mum so well - forever indebted!
