Vogue's Fashion Night In Haul

The 1st of November was the date of Vogue's Fashion Night In where various online shops were offering discounts, competitions and special gifts to people logging on to their websites. The only one that grabbed my attention was the goodie bag being given away by HQ Hair to the first 300 customers to spend £20.

To get the goodie bag I ordered these two products from Bumble & Bumble; Prep and Quenching Complex. I already knew that Prep is a great product. It detangles your hair, is a great base product for blow drying and it helped my hair to grow quicker. I ran out a while ago and never had the funds to repurchase it until now. It is quite possibly my favourite hair product ever, I can't recommend it enough! I tried the Quenching Complex last night and my ends look like they're in really good condition, I can barely see my many split ends. It feels really light and my hair doesn't feel greasy at all. I think this could be a life saver when I get my hair bleached again (aiming for next week, fingers crossed!).

The 5 free items came in this pretty Paul & Joe tote bag. There was a sample bottle of Moroccanoil which is something I've wanted to try for ages, a sachet of Frederic Fekkai's Colour Care hair mask, a tube of Philip Kingsley Scalp Mask, a bottle of Philosophy's Purity facial cleanser and a mini Nars Multiple in South Beach.

I already own a fullsize Multiple in Copacabana which is a shimmery white colour, perfect for highlighting. This sample size is so cute & dinky and fits right in my makeup bag. South Beach is a beautiful golden bronze. I'm so pale so I was worried it might be a bit dark on my skin but it blends out really well to a light golden shimmer.

I've not tried the Philosophy cleanser yet but I'm excited to try it out as I love their products. I already bought this Philosophy Kiss Me Tonight lip treatment from their QVC store and it makes my lips amazingly soft. You're meant to put it on overnight and when you wake up the next day you're left with super soft lips. You can also use it as a regular lip balm. It will be so worth the money this Winter as my lips get so dry in the cold and it works well as a lipstick base too.

Ignore my goon face but check out my shiny hair!! This is purely down to the Moroccanoil! I used a tiny drop all over my hair when it was damp and after blow drying it my hair was so shiny and frizz free. When this bottle runs out I think I'm gonna have to invest in the full size version but because you need such a tiny amount this should last me quite a while.

Did anyone else get anything good from Fashion Night In?
