I’m not a big shopper when it comes to sales. I hate crowds and like to get in and out of the shops quickly. The idea of elbowing fellow shoppers out of the way in the hope of getting a bargain is a bit much for me. One sale I do visit every year however is Boots. All their christmas gift sets are always reduced to half price and it’s a great way of stocking up on my favourite bath and body brand Soap and Glory.
I usual buy every gift set in the sale, as long as I will use everything inside, and it’s usually enough to last me a few months. Bath time to me is my little time for relaxation and luxury in a very busy day, so I like to treat myself to nice bath products. I also got a few make up bits to try including lots of lip glosses and a tin of eyeliner pencils.
This year I bought absolutely loads, as there was so much great stuff on offer, a couple of the sets featured below were actually christmas presents from my husband and I’ve also included the set I bought before christmas in the picture below. I popped into boots today and noticed that there is still loads in stock so if you’re a Soap and glory fan too and love a bargain I’d recommend popping down to have a look.
Sorry for the low quality photos, there is no light at all in my house. But never fear I have ordered some studio lighting and plan to take far better pictures in the new year!
This may seem a bit indulgent but I will use everything over the next few months and actually saved a lot of money – plus there’s no harm in treating yourself once in a while is there!
Apart from a few new clothes for the girls I haven’t bought much else in the sales. Has anyone else got any beauty bargains?

Is there a catalogue I can get?

I’m very much the same, sales are my idea of a nightmare – particularly on Boxing Day itself! I stick with online usually – I stocked up on a few bits from feelunique this year, they had a great sale this year.
Soap & Glory is a brand I’ve always wanted to try but never known where to start – do you have any suggestions?
And I can sympathise with poor lighting in your house, I have the same issues!
Enjoy your goodies and I wish you the best for 2014!

Thank you, I really love soap and glory shower gels and bubble baths, they come in really big bottles and last ages. I also love their body butters as they smell great.
My all time favourite product is Pulp Friction which is a really good body scrub. So I’d say try and of those.
Have a wonderful New Year xxx
