Attached to this blog is my first ever video blog. Well, it’s my second really, I did one yesterday, but as the item was out of stock I didn’t see much point in posting it!

I had planned to do a video blog today about an amazing face cleansing brush – something that I alternate with my Clarisonic, but then I ended up in Primark and was literally overwhelmed with excitement at the unexpected beauty items I came across. I spent £11. I came away with wrapping paper, a lace knicker, 2 hair doughnuts, a sleepwear top, eyelash curlers, hair bands, and a make up/cosmetics bag.

For basic items, Primark’s value is unbeatable. Pyjama bottoms, zip bags for swimwear, and their wrapping paper, that I bought when I desperately needed some today, is so much better than I expected it to be. The danger is, of course, that you overload on products and clothing items that you don’t really need, because they are all priced so reasonably, and actually they aren’t needed and just cause clutter!!

Anyway my buys today – the beauty ones anyway – were much needed and appreciated!

They also do something extremely similar to Hanky Panky’s signature thong (my favourite, most comfortable underwear, stretch lace) for £1, as opposed to £18. The Hanky Panky is so comfortable you can do a work out in it. I remember a few years ago the American ladies at my gym handing them around to each other in the cafe, after a trip back home to the USA. They are slightly cheaper in the US, but very often have sales and offers, and at this link they currently do.

12 Comments on Primark Beauty Accessorise, Underwear and my First Video Blog

  1. Wonderful idea Susie to do a video blog as it brings a new and fresh dimension and simply nice to see you “live”. I had to smile at the eyelashes curler and for the only reason that although my hair is so dead straight and lifeless, my eyelashes are very curled so much that I sometimes think I need an eyelasher straightener! and that’s for the top eyelashes as I have never had much in the lower part. I have ordered myself as a birthday treat a Clarins facial brush, I’ll let you how it works (or not) on lesser young skin! x

  2. Hi Susie Amy, what is a cleansing brush?! love the video blog btw. Are you planning to do any blogs on fitness and food at all?

    • Thanks so much Lainey. I will do the cleasning brush over the next week. I do write about fitness and diet sometimes on my blog, have a look via the search box X

  3. So nice to see you “live”, as Trish said.

    I went to Primark when they opened a store here in Barcelona, but it was ages ago. I must go back and see what I find, because you have given me some ideas.

    Thanks for the vlog

  4. Hello Susie Amy,

    Some great cheap and cheerful products there! Can you recommend a lash enhancing serum? I have been reading many online reviews however I’m still sceptical. XxX

    • My friend was just trying one that the doctor gave her for glaucoma – apparently excellent for growing eyebrows and eyelashes. However she had a bit of a reaction with it. I would be very interested to find out what actually works out there.

  5. ~ Thanks for your wonderful post…
    I love all articles about eyelashes, mascara, as I have really straight lashes and when properly curled makes my eyes look bigger and gorgeous..

    I so love sharing with others about great products.~ The best ever“ heated eyelash curler I have ever found is the Hot Lashes eyelash curler, makeup Artist kit. Loved the reviews on Amazon and was impressed. There is also a site of the same name Hot

    This curler is exactly like the Shu Uemura curler with a amazing 24K gold plated curler and this small pink heater base. Keeps my lashes curling till the next day. and my eyes really pop…HTH~

  6. Really needed a new eye lash curler so decided to get the Primark one after I watched your video , and it really is great, pleasantly surprised! X

  7. You are too cute, girl! It’s been so fun to get to know you and all of the other gals here… honestly it’s the best part about doing the site.

    How are things across the pond? Will you be able to visit home anytime soon?
