These posts always prove to be very popular so I'm back with another beauty bargains post and this month, there are brilliant gift with purchases you need to know about.
If you read yesterday's post, you will know that I am in love with the Anastasia Beverly Hills Luminous Foundation. If you spend £50 on any ABH products, you will receive a free full size Dream Glow Kit, which contains 6 highlighters, which can also be used as eyeshadows. The formula of Anastasia highlighters is beautiful - all are very finely milled and apply so evenly. Even if you aren't a fan of highlighters, you could use this as a gift.
If you spend £50 on Hourglass products, you will receive a mini Veil Mineral Primer, which creates a velvety, poreless base for any foundation applied afterwards. If you are new to the brand, I highly recommend trying their Ambient Lighting Blushes - probably the best blush formula on the market. They are soft, blend like a dream and are intertwined with the powders to create a subtle lit from within look.
If you spend £125 on Feel Unique, you will receive a Luxe Skincare Beauty Bag worth £160, which contains 15 deluxe sample sized products.
Charlotte Tilbury is the Brand Of The Month, which means that there is free international shipping on all orders. In addition, there are two free gifts available. The first is a deluxe mini Legendary Lashes 2 mascara with all orders and the second is a free Pillow Talk pouch with any purchase from the Pillow Talk range.
There is a Hair Care Heroes Kit available with purchases over £65 within the hair care range. This kit is brilliant and contains some of my favourite products. They are all decent sizes so you will get a good idea of how a product works for you and whether it's worth buying the full size. My top recommendations are Olaplex No. 3 - this is a miracle worker for dry, damaged or frizzy hair. Used as a pre-shampoo treatment once weekly, it really does work wonders in terms of strengthening and repairing hair. A brilliant hair mask is Coco & Eve Super Nourishing Coconut & Fig Hair Masque, which not only smells amazing but also really nourishes and tames the hair, leaving it frizz-free and glossy. A scalp and body scrub that is absolutely brilliant as it doesn't tear the skin but really leaves it so smooth is Ouai Scalp & Body Scrub. And of course, I have to mention GHD as I haven't been without one of their straighteners since I first discovered them in 2003!
Finally, I have to mention their Advent Calendar is available to pre-order. Even if you aren't a fan of advent calendars in general, you are bound to be impressed by this one with a value of over £680 and a price tag of £195. I cannot see any dud products in the listing and they are all decent sizes too.
There are weekly discount codes on this site. This week, the first 250 customers to use the code HURRY at checkout will receive 20% discount on their orders and everyone after that will receive 15%. Their Advent Calendar is available to pre-order. I am still using products from last year's and have actually gone on to purchase some full sizes of products I discovered through it. It has a value of over £420 and a price tag of £79.
Some of my top picks to use the discount code on are: Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex - this is a really plumping eye treatment that really diminishes the appearance of fine lines and makes the eye area look more rested. The Advanced Night Repair serum is my most repurchased skincare product ever so I obviously recommend buying that (especially with 20% off!). Full review here. This serum is the product that I have recommended most often to so many people who have gone on to repurchase it regularly.
Other advent calendars available to pre-order:
I know it may seem early but a lot of advent calendars sell out quickly because of the value they offer. I always love the L'Occitane calendars and have had the classic one for the last two years. I love that they contain a variety of products (hair, body, skin, fragrance etc) and I have used every single product in them. The luxury one is more expensive but contains bigger sized products. Both of these are available for purchase right now!
Feel Unique has two calendars also - a 12 day one and a 24 day one, depending on your budget. Both have a great selection of products, with a full size Huda palette in the 24 day calendar! Both are available to pre-order.
The Molton Brown calendar is available to purchase at the moment with 24 exquisite products ranging from candles to shower gels, fragrances and more!
One that sells out quickly every year because of the amazing value it offers (including full size products) is the Space NK advent calendar. You can sign up to the waitlist and it's available to purchase from October 1st.
The ASOS calendar tends to be hit & miss but looks pretty good this year as they have expanded the range of beauty brands that they stock. Available now for £70.
Has anything here caught your eye? If you bought an advent calendar this early, would you be able to resist opening it until December 1st? 🎄
