I guess I'm sad but one of the things I love about Christmas is the sales after (or before as they now tend to start) and I go shopping every year normally on the 27th. This year I even popped to my local town on Boxing Day to check out the sales in store, and to try and hunt down some Lush sales bits but the store was completely empty even when I got there at 11am. I haven't included the clothes I bought in the sales and have instead included the beauty products I picked up, mainly from Space NK as they had such good deals.

This was sort of an impulse purchase as I spotted it in the sale and have yet to try any Jurlique skincare so I went ahead and ordered it. This is a creamy cleanser that helps wipe away the impurities of the day and moisturise the skin with a fresh rose scent. 

Diptyque Oliban Candle | £28.00 (£14.00 on sale)

Again I picked this up as i've been wanting to try out Diptyque candles for a while and this one was half price so I though it was the perfect opportunity. I think this was part of their collaboration with painter Julien Colombier, hence the artistic style packaging and jar. This scent is quite strong in my opinion with notes of sweet oriental vapours.

This was a must when I saw it on the sale online as I was considering buying it at full price. the palette contains three blushes; Luminous Blush Snapdragon, Mineral Blush in Songbird and new exclusive shade Wisteria. I find these to be so pigmented and you really only need a dab on your brush.

Lipstick Queen Oxymoron | £22.00 (£6.00 on sale)

I picked this one up on a whim as the price was just so good. To be honest I actually haven't used it yet as I just put it away in my collection, however, I will be trying to use it over the next few weeks and if I like it I'm sure you'll see it on my blog soon. This is a creamy blusher but can be used as a lip product too. The shade is a mauve pink with a matte finish.

This Works Deep Sleep Night Time | £22.00 (£11.00 on sale)

This is one I picked up in the store and I'm so glad as it seems to be full price still on their website. I've seen this sleep spray everywhere recently and it really intrigued me as I sometimes really struggle to sleep. The spray contains an aromatherapy formula that calms the mind and relaxes the body leading to a better nights sleep. There is also a mini balm that can be applied to pulse points to help aide a better nights sleep. So far I'm really impressed with the spray and I would go so far to say that I'm sleeping better than ever and definitely struggling to get up in the mornings as my bed is just too nice to leave.

Eve Lom Duo 

I picked this one up in the store too and unfortunately I can't find it online, I'm pretty sure it was around £25 on sale and half price so £50ish at full price. The set contains the famous cleanser and rescue mask. In all honesty I have yet to try this properly as i've had so much other new skincare to get through but again i'll be using it more over the next few weeks and will report back.

Laura Mercier Ambre Vanille Bath Set 

Sorry but another I picked up in the store and now can't seem to find online or remember the price but I think it was around £22 on sale at half price. I got the Creme Brûlée set for christmas and it smelt so divine and then when I smelt this one in the store it was amazing I just had to get it. This one contains bath honey, body butter, body wash and a fragrance all in a fresh vanilla scent.

Nuxe Body Oil and Lip Balm Set | £37.50 (£17.95 on sale)

I picked up the lip balm of this around October time and by December I had finished it as it was amazing. I spotted this on sale and just had to get it as I'd been wanting to try the dry body oil for a while. In the set you get a 100ml body oil with a spray applicator and full size lip balm. I knew I already love the lip balm but the body oil is great as well for moisturising but not leaving your skin feeling sticky.

What did you pick up in the sales this year?



  1. Wow you did so well to get those bits in the sale, I had a look at SpaceNK online but I think I had missed all the good bits. I have the pillow spray and it's so addictive, I have such a deep sleep when I use it.
