Health & Glow are just bringing it at the moment; housing a load of my favourites, a stellar pharmacy section and with the more recent addition of a smattering of premium haircare brands it’s my go-to place for when I’m in the mood for a hit of everything all rolled into one.

Usually when I purchase something, I quietly write it down in my notepad and add it to my list of ‘Recently Purchased Items That I Haven’t Told People About Yet’ list. I wait until the list no longer fits on one page and finally get off my derriere to write a haul post. However, every now and again something slips through this process and I just have to alert you guys about my latest purchase – hence the child-like ‘Look What I Got’ title 😉 I have been lusting after this product for probably over a year now, so when I got it I just had to write a blog post about it immediately!
