Collective Feelunique, Drugstore & Sephora Haul

It's been a while since I've done a haul post, not because I haven't been hauling at all, but because my hauls were really small and random and I was waiting so I would gather a few products and then show them to you guys. If you follow me on Instagram, you can see pictures of my mini hauls all the time. Most of the items I hauled are drugstore and also an order I did a while ago from Feelunique.
From Feelunique I ordered 2 things, the Redken Hair Cleansing Cream Shampoo and the Burt's Bees Sensitive Night Cream. The Redken Hair Cleansing cream is a very famous clarifying shampoo in the beauty community , I've been wanting to buy it for years and I finally caved in. I've only tried it once and I have to say that this stuff is really, really strong, it completely dried out my scalp, so that means that it does work but next time I'll have to be careful and not leave it for more than 5 minutes on my scalp before I rinse it off. Also the smell is amazing, it has a gorgeous fresh lemon scent which I love.
The Burt's Bees Sensitive Night Cream was an impulse purchase, I've been trying different skincare products for a while now, and I wanted to get a moisturizer for when my skin reacts to the weather changes, and that happens to me a lot. Until now my skin has been really good, so I can't say how it works when my skin is drier and itchy, but I have been using it for a week or so, and it's really good. It has a very light texture, I can easily blend it on my skin and it doesn't feel sticky at all. It can be a little heavy to be used under makeup that's why I've been avoiding that, but for night time it's really good.
Now to the drugstore goodies, I got this new Garnier Fructis Goodbye Damage Split Ends Serum for my hair. I love trying drugstore hair products, and whenever I see a new one at the store I know I have to get it. I don't usually use hair serums, I only use hair creams and oils for straightening my hair, but I got this to use it just at the ends. I've used it a couple of times and what really surpsrised me is how thick this product is, it has a texure between a serum and an oil and it leaves my ends really soft. Also, I absolutely adore the bright orange packaging, isn't it beautiful?
Well as you can see I went a bit crazy and hauled a bunch of mascaras, and the funny part is that I never combine mascaras, I only use one for 3 months or so. I first purchased the Radiant Professional Studio Perfect mascara because of the lovely youtuber Lucy, it's her HG mascara and I wanted to use it even though I knew that it has a rubber brush which I'm not particularly a fan of them, but I got it anyway. Radiant Professional is a greek brand and I'm not sure if and where its sold outside Greece. To me it's a very basic mascara, it only gives me length because let's face it, I'm not blessed with full lashes like Lucy, but I like the fact that it holds a curl. 
I also got the Sephora Lash Plumper mascara in Ultra Black because Sephora had a great deal for about two weeks, you could buy any Sepora mascara for only10 euros. I haven't purchased a Sephora mascara before, so this is my first time. I haven't opened it yet because I'm saving it for later, but I read really good reviews about it, I read that it gives volume and keeps the lashes really soft, which are the two things that I'm always looking for in a a mascara.
Lastly for mascaras, I saw this new packet at the Essence stand, you get the new Get Big Lashes Triple Black and the Get Big Lashes Waterproof mascaras for the price of one, which is only 2.9 euros! I just couldn't get pass up this deal, they were so cheap, and they had tones of them so if you want them you should definitely check out your nearest Essence stand and grab one. I haven't try them either because I'm saving them for later.
I also purchased a few more stuff from Essence, I got a new base coat because my HG one from Radiant Professional became very gooey and I needed to replace it but I decided to try the Pro White Hardener instead, from the Essence's Studio Nails line. It's a very basic base coat in my opinion, it does the job but I don't think it's as great as the Vitamin Force from Radiant. 
I also got the Lash & Brow clear mascara, I don't usually use clear mascara for my brows, especially since the last one I had from The Body Shop was awful, it was really wet and it was leaving  my brows hard. This one from Essence is not like that at all, is doesn't leave tons of product on my brows, I really like it, and if you're searching for inexpensive clear mascara you should check this one out.
Lastly from Essence I got a lip liner in #11 In The Nude, I got this one because it was the most nude of all the shades they have, and because my HG shade the #1 Soft Rose was discontinued, it was a pink nude, this one is more of a beige nude but it's still very pretty.

So that's all the stuff that I hauled the past few weeks, I also hauled a few more stuff lately from the drugstore and online but I will do a seperate post when I'll have them all in my hands. 
Have you tried any of these products, did you like them? Let me know!
