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.

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.
Advantage Card boost weekend
Shop at Boots from Friday 27th September until Monday 30th September 2019 and you’ll get a fantastic boost on your points. Rather than the standard 4 points per £1, you’ll get 20 – as long as you meet the minimum spend of £50 in-store and £60 online. Since one point is worth 1p, that’s 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 and Dyson hairdryers.
£15 off when you spend £60
It’s been a while since this promotion has run but it’s one we always look out for. Simply spend £60 and you’ll get £15 off. And it works for multiples too. So spend £120, and you’ll get £30 off. Ends Monday 30th September 2019.
Body Shop discounts
Before buying anything at Body Shop, look for a special offer. The O2 Priority or Vouchercloud app always have one kind of deal or another, usually at least 30% off, but often more. Personally I wait for 40% discounts.
Also take a look at your bank’s cashback offer. I’ve seen extra discounts on Halifax and Santander’s apps.
£5 voucher when you recycle old containers
If you take five empty Body Shop bottles, pots, tubs, jars or tubes into a Body Shop store you’ll get a £5 voucher to spend. You have to bring all the containers in at the same time, and you also need to be a member of the Love My Body loyalty scheme (it’s free to join).
£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.
