Budget Beauty : Where to buy.

Friday, 22 August 2014

With so many beauty blogs existing in the blogsphere, we all tend to have a ever growing wishlist of products or brands we would like to try. On occasion though, our bank balance doesn't allow this, so we will go without. Save for it or maybe even pop it on a birthday list. Having said that, there are a couple of places you can look online for specific beauty discounts, I'm always having a look on these sites so I thought it was fair to share my thoughts on them.

Now I will admit, it is a bit hit and miss with the ASOS Beauty sale, however pair the savings you make with a discount code and you could be on to a winner. There currently isn't too much on offer in their up to 35% off sale, however I did manage to pick out some bits. If you like a tan, there are a few fake bake products discounted along with this Instant tan from Xen Tan.  I find sales like this are a great time to think ahead and plan for birthdays or maybe even Christmas. Gift sets like this one from Fake bake would be a fab set to give someone who likes to stay bronzed all year around! ASOS always seems to have various nail polishes from OPI, Nails Inc and Models Own in their sale, so it's worth having a look to see if they have any shades you are lusting after, or ones you have struggled to get your hands on.

I find Fragrance Direct is the Tkmaxx of the online Beauty shopping. You have to rummage a bit to find some good deals. Which is slightly annoying, but if you persist & have the time to spare you could come across some really good deals. You can get a few 'drugstore' bits on there for cheaper than you would in Boots or Superdrug. This Revlon cream blush is down to £3.99 & the Max Factor Mascara has a huge £7 saving on it. I find that Fragrance Direct is a good site to get some decent skincare deals, I was surprised to see a few products from the Body shop on there along with the popular brand Elemis - There's quite a lot on offer. Well worth the time spent searching in my opinion.

All Beauty (formerly Cheap Smells) is my go to website if I want to get hair products and perfumes. They have some amazing savings on particular brands. The Macadamia Oil brand has a lot of fantastic deals including the Healing oil spray which is down to £9.49 instead of £23.50. There also a lot of TIGI products on the site at really good discounted prices so they are worth a look. Along with the more high end perfumes, I love to have a look on All Beauty for the cheaper - dear I say it Celebrity perfumes because you can get them for a pretty decent price. I'll admit I like the Britney Spears Fantasy perfume & if i can save myself £23 when purchasing it, then why wouldn't I pop it in my online basket? It's definitely a site you want to check out if you are thinking about getting a new scent or want to treat hair to a bit of TLC. 

There are also the more obvious places like checkout out department store sales, I know House of Fraser currently have a sale on, along with Debenhams.  Beauty Bay and Feel Unique are also hosting sales at the moment.

Use the Discount code SIZZLE15 for 15% off your order at Look Fantastic 

Much Love,
