A little Boxing Day sale haul..

I love a good sale, so as you would expect I was up bright and early this morning to make the most of the boxing day sales! To be honest I was a little disappointed, by the time I arrived my local shopping centre was so much busier than normal and a lot of the stuff I was planning on buying was already out of stock! Although I did manage to get a few gems! Normally my Lush sale is rubbish and I never leave with anything - although this year they had a load of gift sets left over.
The first gift set I brought was snow fairy which contained a 100ml bottle of Snow Fairy, a 30g shimmy shimmy shimmer bar and a 70g angels delight soap. Originally this was £13.50 although it was down to £6.75 in the sale. I think this is packed beautifully although my only issue with both gift sets is that the bombs/soaps aren't individually wrapped inside the outer packaging.
Next I picked up Mr Frosty, which contained a mini blue skies bubble bar along with a big blue bath and cinders ballistic. I thought this was great value at just £6.25 (originally £12.50) and look forward to putting it to use.
Admittedly I was left pretty disappointed with the Boots sale since my store looked more like a jumble sale with barely any products left, although I did manage to leave with four things I'm really happy with. Since I love perfumes I picked up this little sampler set to try some new ones out for just £7.50 (originally £15) it contained a 5ml Moschio Pink Bouqet, a 10ml bottle of Ghost Deep Night, a 10ml bottle of Lipsy London and a 5ml bottle of Ted Baker's Sweet Treat Polly. I also picked up a set of four french connection lipglosses for £6 (originally £12) as I really liked the look of them.
Of course I couldn't leave without getting my Soap and Glory fix and picked up two of their gift sets. Face time originally retailed at a whooping £25, although like everything else was half price in the sale. The set contains for items; The Feel Good Factor Translucent BB cream (50ml), Off your face cleansing wipes (25) Puffy Eye Attack Turbo boost hydragel (14ml) and a Smooth Operator lip balm. Next I picked up the 'You do the bath' gift set for just £8 with contained a full sized Foam call body wash and butter yourself body cream.
Finally I picked up some reduced slipper socks for just a pound in Primark along with a DVD in HMV to snuggle up with to night.

Have you found any good bargains?

    1. I think I managed to leave before the shops got majorly busy, I'm the type of person who walks out of stores if they're rammed so I avoided most of the clothes shops! I've managed to spend £50 on a New Look order although not much else has caught my eye xxx

  4. I love Boxing Day sale. I picked up so many things from Lush, at my nearby Lush store, they have so pretty much all of the Christmas products and gift sets left over. I wish I have gotten Mr. Frosty though, I really want to try the Big Blue.
