I'm pretty sure everyone likes a bargain after Christmas especially with Christmas money and gift cards to spend! However you can go for the crazy option of being trampled all over whist shopping on the high street. OR you can shop online from the comfort of your sofa whilst watching a Christmas film and eating chocolates.
A lot of people seem to complain about the online sales after Christmas not being that good and I agree, some aren't. However I personally just bypass the rubbish ones and visit the sites I know do offer really slashed prices. My general rule if I am going to treat myself in the Boxing Day sales is it has to have 50% off at least and free delivery!
So here are some great beauty buys that I have found so far...
Shop the SPACK.NK sale!
The SPACE.NK sale is one of my favourite sales as it makes all them higher-end brands more affordable. Plus this year there is a free delivery code - SNKHARR saving you an extra £5! I have already snapped up the Laura Mercier Cool Classics for Eyes Compact which contains two lovely eyeshadows and a cake eyeliner (above image: bottom right). I also spotted a Chantecaille Real Skin Compact (above image: bottom left) which has been amazingly reduced to only £10. It is only available in deep shade now but as this is a cream foundation this would be a perfect product for contouring with!
Another product that caught my eye was the Shu Uemura Cream Eyeshadows (above image: top right) that comes in 6 shades (some nice neutrals in there) and are only £7.50 each. As for a wonderfully cheap palette there is the Laura Mercier Bonne Mine Palette (above image: top left) that contains one bronzer, two blushers and two highlighters... I'm actually wondering why I didn't get this now!
Debenhams isn't my favourite website to shop on as I don't think it is organised well and I always have problems spending gift cards on the site, however there are always some good savings to be had after Christmas. As you can see a lot of Philosophy products are half price... with even a few non-festive products included as well. Also I spotted a really nice set from Nip + Fab for only £12.25 (above image: bottom right) and trust me the Pistachio Sundae Body Butter and Multi-Fix Oil are really lovely products. There are also a few Benefit sets in the sale as well! Plus there is free delivery across the whole site right now!
Other sales that are worth a look...
Forever 21 - Probably the best savings online for clothing and accessories! Forever 21 are offering an extra 50% off all sale items meaning items are starting from only 99p!
ASOS - The beauty sale isn't as great as previous years however there are some gems, plus some great savings on shoes and clothing.
Urban Outfitters - The gift/homeware section is always my favourite in the sale; so many unique products! Here are my favourites - Antique table mirror (Beauty & The Beast style!), Rose Floral Rug, Leave Please Doormat (I need this!), Pups Salt & Pepper Shakers.
If you know anymore great sales online let me know in the comments.
Hope you all had a lovely Christmas Day! I got thoroughly spoilt but annoyingly I was ill and didn't even have Christmas dinner!
