Last Friday I threw caution to the wind and ended up going on a little shopping spree with my mum. As well as picking up some autumn clothes, which I will be posting about soon, I also stocked up on some beauty bits.
I recently wrote about my Estée Lauder doublewear foundation, and how I finally feel like I’ve found the holy grail of foundations. Unfortunately that holy grail is over £30 and seems to be running out after around 6 weeks of use.
I wasn’t sure whether I should repurchase, despite it being by far the best foundation I’ve tried in years, when I got an email through from Boots with an exclusive special offer of a free gift when purchasing at least one makeup and one skincare item from their Estée Lauder counters.
I am a total sucker for a free gift and this one looked totally amazing so off I went to Boots to investigate. I didn’t want to spend any more than I had to so I asked what their cheapest skincare item was and the lady behind the counter passed me the Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Foam, which she said was really lovely and cost £10.
There was a choice between two free gifts and I opted for the day set which included the Mini Bronze Goddess Pressed Powder Palette in shade Light, Little Black Primer (2.8ml), Perfectly Clean Cleanser (30ml), DayWear Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant SPF15 Creme (15ml), Pure Colour Envy Gloss in shade Plum Jealousy (4.6ml), Sumptuous Extreme Volume Mascara in Extreme Black (2.8ml) and The Illuminator Radiant Perfecting Primer & Finisher (15ml).
I have yet to try most of the items in my free gift but they all look amazing, and the bag itself is so beautiful. I’m really happy with my purchases.
Whilst I was in the shop I also needed another sleep spray from Champneys but whilst browsing the Christmas aisle (I mean, how can you avoid it, it’s so pretty), I came across a gift set which not only included the full size product, but also had an eye mask and sleep balm too, for only £1.50 more than the spray on its own.
I also saw a beautiful nail polish gift set from No7 for my mum as part of her Christmas present, and as it was 3 for 2 on gifts, I ended up picking up the Zoella mug too – so pretty!
The Estée Lauder offer is on until 14th October in Boots stores. This post is not in collaboration with Boots or Estée Lauder, I just wanted to share the good deal!
