SHOP smart in the sales and you can bag beauty favourites at extra-low prices.
Gift sets typically offer savings on top-brand products — and when these are reduced, the discounts are even bigger.
Grab a treat for yourself or break up the sets to use as birthday gifts throughout the year.
You could even buy now to get ahead and save for next Christmas.
SPEND LESS AND GET MORE: There are great deals on premium beauty brands in the sales. For example, a bottle of Clarins Double Serum Eye, 20ml, is £48.45 at Boots.
However, the Clarins Double Serum Eye collection set is down from £58 to £43.50. You get the same size serum, as well as Total Cleansing Oil, Curl Mascara and a Clarins wash bag.
A bottle of Clinique Happy 30ml perfume spray costs £25.50 at Allbeauty.com. Head to Sephora.co.uk and you can pick up a Clinique Have A Little Happy gift set for £23.45, down from £35. The deal includes the same perfume spray plus Happy body cream.
MAKE-UP DEALS: MAC lipsticks are popular but with a price tag of £16.57 each at Boots, they do not come cheap. The MAC Powder Kiss lipstick gift set at Boots is down from £38 to £25.33.
The pack has three full-sized lipsticks, meaning each one works out at half the normal price at £8.44. Nails Inc nail polish is £8 a bottle.
But the Keep It Tonal set has four bottles and is down from £22 to £17.60 at Sephora.co.uk. Each bottle works out just over half-price at £4.40.
EVERYDAY ITEMS: The sales are also great for everyday essentials. Nivea’s Perfectly Indulgent gift set, down from £20 to £8 at Superdrug, includes body lotion, shower cream, hand cream, face cream, day cream and night cream.
A bottle of the Nivea Irresistibly Smooth body lotion alone costs £3.99 at Superdrug. Buying all items individually would come to at least £14.
