Steal of the Week


If I had ordered both products above online my order would of come somewhere around the £35 mark. However I found both products in TK MAXX in pristine condition for....

Dum, Dumm,Dummmm...

£5!!

The Balm Hot Mama Shadow/Blush was a jaw-dropping £2 from the RRP £19.00 and with it being in a security clear wallet, I knew it hadn't already been swatched by hundreds of other customers. 

As for the quite large bottle of Philosophy Inner Grace Body Spritz, I purchased that on clearance for £3 from the RRP £21.00. Thinking back I really should of got afew of these as the scent really is beautiful for spraying onto clothes or as a light scent on the skin.

Both equally amazing savings!


You can really get some great discounts on brands such as Stila, NYX, Philosophy, Tigi haircare and the Balm in both TK Maxx and Home Sense. 

A word of warning though - the hygiene level in both shops is pretty shocking and below what it should be! So taking Hand Sanitizer (and even makeup remover wipes) with you is a must as you don't want to get anything sticky or gloppy on your hands when picking up products. 
 

With a saving of over £30 this definitely deserved the 'Steal of the Week' slot!

You'd have laughed at me, I picked up the IG and put it back! I am on a no spend at the moment and even £5 as it was in my TKMaxx was too much. Agree on the bargains but they do vary. Thankyou for this. Jan x

Fab steals! Love TK Maxx's beauty section lately but I totally agree about the hygiene levels...as in, so low they're barely existent.

I saw some Philosophy in my local TK Maxx a couple of weeks back so they must have them nationwide. I didn't pick any up as I'm trying to use up some of the fragrances I have but you're right, they're such good bargains. Oh damn, I wish I'd bought some now. x
