Boxing Day Sales Buys

I managed to go shopping before work on Boxing Day, and bagged a few bargains in Boots and Debenhams!

 

I’m not usually one for sale shopping, but I thought I’d see what all the fuss was about this time. I was in town Boxing Day morning for 8am to squeeze in some shopping before my friend and I started work at 10. Town was eerily quiet. I suppose that’s the way it should be the day after Christmas, but I was expecting mass queues outside Next and people struggling to carry all their bargain buys.

Our first stop was Boots. I headed straight for the No7 gift section and nabbed a couple sets – they were all half price after all! The first thing I picked up was the No7Β Beautiful Skin set. The main reason I picked up this set was because of the sturdy vanity case, but I’m looking forward to trying out the contents. The case contains: Beautiful Skin Sumptuous Bath Milk, Beautiful Skin Perfecting Body Polish, Beautiful Skin Blissful Body Wash and Beautiful Skin Nourishing Hand & Nail Cream. All the products have a subtle cucumber scent which is really refreshing. It’ll be a nice change from using bath bombs and bubble bars. I also picked up the No7 Stay Perfect set, which includes 5 metallic eye pencils. I’ve tried travel versions of these in the Beauty Wonders advent calendar – and I loved them! I also picked up the Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh Christmas Gift Set. Daisy eau so fresh has raspberry, wild rose and warm plum notes – a super refreshing scent.

I popped into Debenhams and bought theΒ Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream Christmas Gift Set. Daisy Dream is floral and fruity, packed with blackberry, grapefruit, pear and coconut water. I love Marc Jacobs perfumes and of course, the bottles are so beautiful too.

Did you treat yourself to anything in the sales?

    Although I'm not usually one for January sale shopping (well.. except for Online of course) – I did happen to pick up a few nice bits in the Boots sale this year!

    Nothing better than picking up a good bargain – especially when it's half price!

    I was so tempted to buy something, but in the end I was good and did not buy anything. The Stay Perfect set is very tempting though, I really want to try more eyeliners this year and eventually get better at it.

    Looks like you got some really lovely bits in the sales! πŸ™‚ I had been tempted by the Marc Jacobs gift sets but joked with the bf and said I’d get them next year when I’ve ran out of Daisy haha.
