From freebies to money off, if I spot a great deal on beauty products I’ll list them here.
There’s always a discount at Body Shop, and many other retailers and brands have offers and sales. Here’s my pick of the best savings right now.
Some articles on the blog contain affiliate links, which provide a small commission to help fund the blog. However, they won’t affect the price you pay or the blog’s independence. Read more here.
Every month or so look out for special Advantage Card promotions. These usually offer £10 back in points when you spend £50 in shops (£60 online). I’ll add details here when I find out they are happening.
Save £5 for every £20 you spend
Boots is running a “Fall Back Into Beauty” promotion where you’ll get £5 off every £20 you spend. So spend £40 and it’s £10, £60 and it’s £15 and so on.
Items in the offer are clearly marked on the website, and it looks like you might be able to stack them with other promotions (eg 2 for £30 on L’Oreal).
Anyone with valid student ID can get a 10% discount at Boots. You need to go into a shop with your ID and your Boots Advantage card and ask for them to be connected. Once that’s done you only need to present your Advantage card in shops or sign in online to get the discount.
Advantage Card boost weekend
The most recent took place Thursday 27th February to Monday 2nd March 2020.
Rather than the standard 4 points per £1, you’ll get £10 worth of points for every £60 you spend. It’s online-only this time.
Since one point is worth 1p, that’s close to 20% off! You get the money back as points to spend in Boots at a later date.
This offer excludes the Dyson Airwrap styler and a few other things, but you can use it on everything from shampoo and sun cream to car seats, FitBits and Dyson hairdryers.
Body Shop discounts
Before buying anything at Body Shop, look for a special offer. Sites like Vouchercodes or Vouchercloud always have one kind of deal or another, usually at least 25% off, but often more. Personally I wait for 40% discounts.
Also take a look at your bank’s cashback offer. I’ve often seen extra discounts on Halifax and Santander’s apps.
£5 voucher on your birthday
Love My Body members get sent a £5 voucher on their birthday every year. You can sign up for the scheme (for free) here.
Other regular discount codes
15% off at Fabled by Marie Claire
On the tube the other day I saw an advert for 15% off a new beauty site. It’s called Fabled and it’s from Marie Claire magazine. It seems to have a huge range of products, including Molton Brown, Lancome and super high-end brands such as La Mer. The code WELCOME15 should give you the money off.
