I was pretty disappointed the first time I got round to going to the January sales last week. I asumed cos we were away until the 29th everything had kinda gone before we got chance to have a look. But this week has been a bit more successful, I picked up a few thinks in TKMaxx which I shared with you a few days back and we've had the odd bargain here and there.
Boots is usually the first sale I run too, I was desperate to get my hands on some Soap and Glory sale stuff, but of course, by the time I had got there (and to several other Boots' in the North West) they had all sold out. Yesterday I did manage to pick up this little baby though.
I'm sure everyone saw the 'This Works' beauty balls this year - there we're two available, one with a shimmer balm, like this one and another with a sleep balm, I think. I've never tried this brand before, although I have always lusted after their skin care range. According to Boots website the beauty balls were originally £10 before Christmas, the website says they are still priced at £6.67 but I managed to pick this up for (not £3.33, as the sticker say) but for £2.42! I have no idea why they have such random pricing in Boots. So although I didn't get the Soap and Glory stuff I was still happy with this.
I tried the balm out last night as lip balm and it's worked really well over night. My lips are flaky or 'crusty' (ew!) as they usually would be, so I'm happy. The balm can also be used as a highlighter for your face and cleavage..I think I will give the cleavage thing a miss, but I will certainly be trying it on my cheeks! I'm now on the hunt for the sleep balm ball too, so I can have a full set!
Did you manage to pick up some Boots bargains?
P.S. Does anyone remember a few years back when Boots did 75% off a few weeks after the sale started? I''m praying they do this again, there is so much gorgeous Sanctuary stuff left that I need to get my mitts on!
