Every year it always seems to be that I end up getting paid just before Christmas which means I have a full pay cheque in the bank ready for the boxing day sales. This year was no different so I put aside a bit of extra cash to treat myself and headed online to check out the sales. I only picked up a couple of bits but after sharing what I got for Christmas, I thought today I would share with you what I picked up during the boxing day sales too. I didn’t buy as much as I thought I would, just a few bits and pieces which I have had my eye on for a while now.
One of my absolute essentials in life is hand cream and you usually won’t find me without any. I have one in my handbag, on my desk, on my bedside table, and in the bathroom – I literally don’t go anywhere without a tube of the stuff. I had my eye on this trio from Molton Brown for a while so when I saw they had made their way into the sale I couldn’t help but pick up a set to try. They all smell absolutely delicious and feel so luxurious and nourishing on my hands.
Nails Inc released a bunch of different sets this year which all looked equally amazing. They had a fab set in Boots I had my eye on but unfortunately it sold out before I managed to pick one up so when I found this little beauty on the John Lewis website, I just couldn’t resist. Inside is an illuminating face mask, an iridescent lipstick and two nail polishes – a glitter top coat and a metallic rosy pink. Everything is so shimmery, I cannot wait to use it all.
I picked up one of the Stila Glitterati Lip Top Coats because I am obsessed with lip toppers at the moment and I love the subtle shimmer this adds onto the lips. You can wear it on it’s own or over a matte lipstick for a sparkling finish. Finally the Cover FX Illuminating & Prime kit which features a primer, setting spray and a mini of the custom enhancer drops. I have wanted to try these drops for a while but I couldn’t justify the price until I had tried these a few times before to make sure I actually like them. This set is a good little way for me to try out the brand and get the glow in the process – I’ll let you know how I get on.
So that’s everything I picked up beauty wise in the sales. I didn’t get as much as I thought because I did pick up a lot in the run up to Christmas and a lot of my gifts were beauty related. Let me know what bargains you managed to snag below.
