It seems a little premature hauling products that I haven't even received myself yet, let alone photographed but when it comes to sales shopping, you've got to get in there quick if you want to make the most of the bargains that are to be had. Late last night, I purchased a few things that I'd had my eye on for a while that had gone into the sale and I wanted to share them with you as soon as possible so that if you wanted to pick them up then you could do before they sell out!
|January Sale Bargains|
1. Feel Unique
When the sales hit, the first place I headed over to was Feel Unique where I know from previous Boxing Day Sales that they always have a good deal on their GlamGlow products. Their original mud mask has been a firm favourite of mine ever since I reviewed it in this post and I have repurchased it several times.
The tingling and exfoliating youth mud mask gives amazing results INSTANTLY and it is hands down the best mask I've ever, ever used. I'm getting married pretty soon and I want my skin to look amazing. The only mask that I can trust to give me and MR WLL amazing looking skin is this one so I have bought a couple from Feel Unique for us to use over the coming months.
I actually purchased the charity version of the pot, called the Cure Sexy Special Edition, that donates money towards Breakthrough Breast Cancer. The pink pots are exactly the same as the original GlamGlow mud mask in the black pot, both are 50g and usually retail for £49.99. The only difference is that in the sale, the black pots are £37.49 (25% off) and the pink are £34.99 (30% off). You can click here. to purchase the pink pot or head on over to Feel Unique for the black pot if the pink have all sold out and as always, with Feel Unique, there's free delivery too.
2. Space NK
For me, the most enticing sales always tend to come from Space NK as I'm tempted to try out new brands or products that I haven't tried from a particular line before, which was very much the case this year as I picked up the Elemental Herbology Travel Essentials Kit (50% off- £12 down from £24) which contains a shampoo, conditioner, body wash and hydrator. I have tried some samples of their skincare this year and I've been really impressed with them so being able to try smaller sizes of their wash products without having to commit to buying the full size really appeals to me.
The best gift sets, however, have to be the Laura Mercier ones which are again, 50% off. The one that I liked the sound of the most was the Body and Bath Luxe Quartet in Almond Coconut (£30 reduced from £60). This is a fantastic set offering a pot of the honey bath, scrub, soufflé body crème and a candle which all combine to create a really relaxing Bathtime experience. I've bought this to use in the run up to my wedding to help me to have some chill out, pamper nights. I also purchased the Body and Bath Duet in the same fragrance (£15 down from £30) which contains bath salts and the same soufflé body crème. I usually use the pistachio line from Laura Mercier so it'll be really nice to try a new scent.
3. Jack Wills
One shop that I head to during the sales every winter is Jack Wills. Their winter accessories are my favourite over any other store and they always have AMAZING discounts at this time of the year so I always buy my key knitwear pieces to use for the remainder of the season and for many winters to come as they are impeccably made.
This year, I have bought the Anderby Hat and Glove Set in red which has a knitted red headband and matching gloves with WILLS on them in a contrasting white. They're also available in the signature Jack Wills navy and pink. For £26 down from £34.50, I think they're a great saving and a fabulous buy.
4. House of Fraser
Finally, the store that I ALWAYS shop at, especially when they have a sale on, is House of Fraser because they always have amazing deals on my favourite brands. If you were a reader of my blog earlier this year then you'll know that I was contemplating buying a Furla Candy Bag. Well to cut a long story short, I ended up splashing out massively on a Mulberry Bayswater and decided to lay the idea of the Furla to bed for a while. When I was on the HoF website, I saw that they had some GORGEOUS colours available for £92.50 for the large size and I just HAD to buy a pink one with my Christmas money. I cannot WAIT for it to arrive!
Another sale I couldn't WAIT to check out was the Benna sale. They have an amazing online store with a great range of designers that you can't just pick up on the highstreet. I'd heard a YouTuber talking about the collectable Monica Vinader bracelets and I was really happy to see that a couple went into the sale including the gorgeous Pink Gem Fiji Bracelet that I've had my eye on for a long while. These make great stacking pieces, as do the Monica Vinader stacking rings which are super popular too- the Amethyst Siren Stacking Ring is my sale pick this Boxing Day.
If you're into statement necklaces then the embellished Mawi jewellery is an awesome choice. Personally, I'm going for their Pink Crystal Heart and Spike Drop Earrings which are so sparkly and will be perfect for lots of party outfits throughout the year. I'm really focusing on investing in key pieces that are good quality so that they're long lasting and wont tarnish so these will be a welcome addition to my collection.
That's all of my sales shopping done so far and all from the comfort of my living room, do let me know if you spot any other bargains!
