Every year I order a lot of my skincare (body skincare; shower gels, body lotions, bubble bath etc) from Boots in their 50% off Christmas sale. This usually lasts me all year so I don’t have to buy any shower gels, body lotions etc for the rest of the year! I also pick up anything else that catches my eye and this year I got some wonderful gift sets at fantastic prices. I also bought a lot of it with my Boots points so didn’t have to hand over much of my own cash at all, so it seems like even more of a bargain!
So, here’s what I got!
Joules Bath Fizzers -
I absolutely love bath bombs so I picked these really cute egg-shaped bath fizzers from Joules for only £3 :) The packaging is adorable and I've already used the white one and it smelt lovely!
Soap and Glory Powder Trip
I was planning on buying this full price, so when it was reduced to £10, it went straight into my basket. This includes Solar Powder (a multi-shade bronzer), Love at First Blush (multi-shimmer blusher) and Glow All Out (luminizing face powder). These powders retail at £11 individually, so to get three and a brush for £10, it is excellent value! This is still available online :)
Gok Bath Time Collection
I love the Gok range and really like the bath essences, so this trio was perfect. They're all 200ml so will provide me with lovely bubbly, beautifully scented baths for a long time :)
So Snug 4-Pack of Socks
Every year I buy these socks, they're really good quality and great value when they are reduced to £5! These are so comfortable and the patterns are really cute.
Ted Baker Holy Smoke! Candle Duo Set
I got these beautiful scented candles from the Ted Baker range and they smell amazing! They're pretty big so they should last a long time. They come in a really nice patterned box that I'm going to use as storage :)
Ted's Sweetest Treat Fragrance Set
This set from Ted Baker includes a bath gem (bath fizzer), a really nice perfume called 'Polly' and a 100ml shower gel. I really like this gift set, everything smells gorgeous and it was an absolute bargain for £7.50.
Salonniere by Jenny Packham Lipstick and Blotting Papers Set
For £7 this was a massive bargain! Four beautiful lipstick shades, some blotting papers and a lovely little clutch bag that I will use as a makeup bag :) I absolutely love all the shades but can't speak about the quality as I've only just received them so haven't tried them out yet!
Betty and Walter Bubbly Bits
In this set, there is a flannel, two 45g bath cubes, a 50ml body lotion, 50ml body scrub and 50ml shower cream all housed in a beautiful tin. I think the tin on its own is worth £5 so I'm really happy with this purchase, it all smells gorgeous too!
Sanctuary Weekend Get-Away Collection
I absolutely love Sanctuary, the scent is gorgeous and the products are amazing quality for the money. In this set you get: a shower puff, luxury bath float 75ml, body lotion 75ml, body wash 75ml, foaming bath soak 75ml, body scrub 50ml and hand cream 30ml in a large orange travel bag. For £9 this was great value and I love all the products included :)
French Connection Body Trio Collection
I really love the French Connection sets and get them every year and this year they're the best ever. I absolutely love the scent and the packaging is gorgeous, I love the false wood effect on the pumps. In this set you get a 250ml body lotion, 150ml body spray and 250ml body lotion all in a really nice travel bag. I love that everything has a pump, its so practical and makes them so easy to use.
Ted Baker Devoted To You Gift Set
I love the Ted Baker scent, so I stocked up on their products! In this set you get: a headband, 150ml body spray, 200ml body wash, 250ml bath foam, 50ml body souffle and a 50ml hand cream which for £10 is really good value! I love this set :)
bareMinerals Loud Lips Duo
As this is from the premium makeup range this only had a 1/3rd off but £12 for two bareMinerals lip products that normally retail at £15 each is excellent value. The purple shade is called 'Berry Remix' and the pink shade is called 'Pink Pulse'. I have tried Pink Pulse and it gives a lovely sheer wash of colour and is super hydrating. I really like these, so glad I picked them!
Sanctuary Luxury Travel Treats
This set includes: a 75ml body wash, 50ml body scrub, 50ml body moisture spray, 30ml hand cream and 75ml luxury bath float all in a little travel bag. I had to pick up another sanctuary set, for £6 this was an absolute steal working out at about £1.20 per item!
French Connection Mini Pamper Collection
I absolutely love the style of the French Connection products this year, they look so amazing! In this set I got: a shower puff, 75ml body wash, 75ml body spray, 50ml body butter and 50ml body polish, all in a lovely little box. I really like this set and for £6, you really can't go wrong!
I got some incredible bargains this year and managed to get much better gift sets than I did last year so I'm really happy!
Thanks for reading!
