This morning I headed out to the Boxing Day sales in town to see what bargains I could find. My first point of call was Boots and I had two things in mind - a Michael Kors perfume set and the Soap & Glory set of lip crayons called 'Loved & Glossed'. Neither of those ideas worked out too well for me as I wanted the Citrus Michael Kors perfume not realising they only did the Glam perfume in a set and the Soap & Glory set had sold out. I got to the sale about 20 minutes after the store opened so I think they must have all sold on Christmas Eve.
I was a bit dissapointed at first but then I saw all of the half price Philosophy items so picked up the 'Peppermint Stick' shower gel. Yummy and only £7! I also remembered that I'd been wanting the Calvin Klein Down Town perfume since it launched not long ago but was holding off for the sales. I got this for £16.87, also half price and it's a 50ml size! Finally I spotted a few of the Soap & Glory 'Once upon a Lime' sets that contained items from the Sugar Crush range. I really like the body wash and body scrub so was pleased to see smaller versions of these in this set along with a full size Body Buttercream and a shower scrunchy. This was down from £18.00 to £9.00.
Next I headed to Debenhams but I didn't really see anything good there apart from perfume sets. Normally I buy several of these as they are hard to refuse at 1/3 or 1/2 off but as I already got 3 bottles for Christmas, I don't want to have too many hanging around my room!
Normally I miss the half price Christmas stock in Lush as I forget about Lush until it's too late but I was in the store just after it opened so I had a good range of stock to choose from! Yay!
I also went for the Best Wishes set containing the Golden Wonder bath ballistic, Snowcake soap and Luxury Lush Pud bath ballistic all for £6.75! I now have a nice mixture of some products I've used before (and love!) along with some new things I fancied trying.
I'll be heading back to the sales tomorrow for the start of the Fenwick and John Lewis sales so there could be a part 2 to this post!
