I rarely stop by the Phase I or Avenues I branch of Boots (wedged in wall-to-wall with yet another Starbucks). Normally, I’d visit the Phase II or Avenues II branch of Boots (because it’s one store over from Bath & Body Works which is my usual haunting ground). However, I’ve been hitting up pretty much every single branch of Boots that I can think of, in search of Batiste Dry Shampoo – A Hint of Colour Medium & Brunette (featured here) because it seems to have vanished, country-wide (which makes me very, very sad). It had the nicest scent out of all of them, and the powder was tinted (matching my hair perfectly). That stuff was my favorite! So, if anyone happens to know where I can find it locally, please do share. I’d be much obliged to ya! Anyways, I was at Boots and opposed to just the Buy Two Get One Free deal that they’re usually promoting (which forces your hand into purchasing more stuff), they actually had a legitimate Sale going on (25% off most items), so I stocked up on a few “necessities”.
It doesn’t get more old-school than Labello! Labello lip care sticks have been around for more than 100 years! The word “labello” comes from the Latin words “labium” (lip) and “bellus” (beautiful). The labello lip care sticks are also sold under the name Labello Nivea, Liposan and Nivea Lip Care. It is produced by Beiersdorf AG in Germany and Austria. It’s sold almost everywhere in the world but again, people buy it in bulk from Europe because supposedly the European version is superior.
