• {Beauty} Recent Purchase ~ Victoria Secret

     A few weeks ago (mid-october) I had an amazing opportunity to visit the USA for the first time in my life. I would have loved it even more if it was my vacation time but no peeps such luck does not befall me, I instead went for work for a week. I do not know yet when I will have another chance to visit (it is on my bucketlist) so I decided to lengthen the visit by going the weekend before I was expected to be in the office and leave the weekend after. I did not regret this decision, my only regret is I did not have enough spending money to play with (maybe next time). Anyway whilst visiting New Jersey for work I decided to go into New York during the weekend and happened to stumble upon Victoria Secret. I have never been to a Victoria Secret shop and neither ever I thought about shopping there but my colleague wanted to buy some items so I thought I take a look too. There were so many things I wanted to buy, the lingerie was absolutely gorgeous (and pricey), stylish and oh la la. But with a limited unplanned budget I only managed to get a few items.

    VICTORIA’S SECRET BODY CAREShea Hydrating Body Lotion, when I saw this body lotion I knew I had to have it and not only because it was on sale for 2for1 but because it smelled absolutely divine. I did not care that it was $18 (£11) it was totally worth the purchase, I am currently using one and given the free one to my sister who’s using it religiously. The body lotion gives an all day hydration, gently absorbs into the skin, is soft on the skin, not greasy and it’s very nourishing to the skin. This lotion is paraben free and I love that you get a continuous moisturizing effect all day long.

    Since I have been traveling a lot in 2015 and God willing plan to travel even more in 2016 I thought it wise to pick up a travel bag filled to the brim with travel size head to toe body moisturizing products. This travel gift set was priced at $25 (£16) in store and again I think for what it’s packing it’s worth the price.

    VICTORIA’S SECRET BODY CARE NEW! Hydrating Body Lotion Gift Set, this travel set contains: Smoothing SCRUB WASH, Ultra Rich CREAM WASH, Hydrating BODY LOTION and weightless BODY OIL, all 100ml bottles individually priced at £5.42. I can not wait for my next trip abroad to carry this travel set, I have always remembered to pack the face products but never remembered to buy/pack body products so this is a real treat for me.

    Whilst in store I was also able to pick up some nice bras (couldn’t afford undies 🙂 ) which after I got measured by the lovely assistants I was told I was a 36 TRIPLE D which is basically E cup in the UK. My boobies do feel really comfortable in my new bras and they are completely covered which is a rarity for me, the bras has always got somehow managed to allow my bust to escape on the sides or in front which can be very embarrassing in your type of clothes. Though each bra cost me $45 and I am not saying I will be running back to Victoria Secret I will say there bras are really exception and so comfortable. The material is strong yet soft and very comfortable to wear, every time I wear these bras I am always in awe of how well they fit my chest and how comfortable I am in them. I have an unfortunate habit of taking bras off when I feel uncomfortable but now I have been so comfortable with these I am forgetting to take them off most days.

    Have you ever bought anything from Victoria Secret before? What did you think of the Bras, Beauty products and other products you purchased?

      I’ve never tried any actual beauty body products from Victoria’s Secret! I’ll have to check them out!

      I remember when shopping at VS was a must whenever I popped into the mall and loved their scents for lotions and parfumes. I’m sure these feel and smell great! It’s wonderful that you’ve been able to travel so much and I hope you get more opportunities to do so in 2016

      I’ve used Victoria Secret products a few times. They’re great! And they also make amazing gifts!

      I never go in to Victoria’s Secret, though these look like they’re good quality body lotions. Maybe I’ll stop by if I put together a spa basket for a family member!

      I rarely go into Victoria Secret anymore but I used to buy their lotions and body splashes often when I was younger! I’m glad you were able to extend your stay and get to see more of the US than the office!

      I’ve never tried Victoria’s Secret body lotions because I’m quite particular about the brand I use. That being said these look like great gift options!

      These are great Victoria Secret purchases and would make great gift ideas too. I love that fact that the Lotion is on sale 2 for the price of 1 and the travel set is only $25. These are items I will have to check out.

      There’s no doubt that Victoria Secret is among the most established brands when it comes to apparels. Though, I haven’t used their lotions yet. I think I’ll give it a try after reading your blog.

      I always go to VS for their bras, never thought to try their lotion 🙂 Fun.

      Victorias Secret is such an established beauty and Lingerie brand. These looks really effective.

      I buy their bras all the time. They have some of the most comfortable pants, the name escapes me. They are like the softest t-shirt you’ve ever worn, on your legs.

      I’ve been shopping at Victoria’s Secret for years and I love their body lotions. I haven’t been in lately, but I need to stop by and see what’s new.

      Congrats on your first US trip! I love shea butters! I’ll have to stop by Victoria’s Secret and get some! Its great on winter skin!

      I’ve lived in America all my life and I’ve yet to visit New York, so lucky you! Isn’t it fun to shop in high quality stores and splurge a little? I love Victoria Secret too and will pop in the check out these new lotions you mentioned. Thanks so much!

    15. November 24, 2015 / 5:01 pm

      I have to admit, I don’t shop at Victoria’s Secret as much as I did when I was a teen/in college but I still pop in from time to time! That Shea Hydrating Body Lotion sounds AMAZING! I’ve always loved VS lotion <3

    16. November 24, 2015 / 2:31 pm

      I haven’t visited VS in a long time. When I was in high school, and part of college, I’m sure I had every single scent from their collection!

    17. November 24, 2015 / 2:19 pm

      Victoria’s Secret is definitely a treasure trove of beautiful lingerie and beauty products! I always love visiting one of their stores whenever I’m at the mall. I love the products you picked out!

      I’ve never seen these products before but now I really want to try them. I’m always looking for new body scrubs and creams.
