I always ask people where they find the cheapest products so I thought I’d write a post about where I buy most of my things! 🙂
I mostly shop at Boots – they have the best loyalty / points card on the market with a huge 4 points to every £1 and always have offers on such as 3 for 2 or free gifts so the combination of offers and advantage card points is always good in my books. I recently used my ad card points to treat myself to a Jimmy Choo perfume so you can see why I love collecting points! They have extra points offers on the app or on the paper vouchers they send out every 3 months so there’s plenty opportunities to save up for your fave beauty buys and get them with your points so they’re practically free and that’s always a bonus in my books! You will see I get a lot of No7 stuff (a Boots own brand) which might seem expensive but I only ever buy it when they have vouchers out which often correspond with offers such as buy one get one half price so there are bargains to be had there!
As a result of this I don’t tend to look at Superdrug as the prices are similar and there card only offers 1 point per £1,, although I did get some bargain hair products at less than 50p each in their clearance section the other day!
Both do a free beauty magazine with their loyalty card but having read both the Boots one offers more useful advice I would say!
I always get my makeup brushes from Wilkos as at £4 each in the premium range you can’t get much more quality for a super cheap price! I also get cotton face pads from there to remove my make-up as they’re 50p each compared to nearly £2 in Boots!
I have also shopped at Asos for some makeup brands as they often include them in the sales (you often have to properly look for them as they don’t often appear in the usual sale pages) such as Rimmel and Bourjous.
If you know of any more places to bag some bargain beauty buys let me know in the comments!
