Boxing Day Sale Shopping 2013 - Boots and Lush



This morning I headed out to the Boxing Day sales in town to see what bargains I could find. My first point of call was Boots and I had two things in mind - a Michael Kors perfume set and the Soap & Glory set of lip crayons called 'Loved & Glossed'. Neither of those ideas worked out too well for me as I wanted the Citrus Michael Kors perfume not realising they only did the Glam perfume in a set and the Soap & Glory set had sold out. I got to the sale about 20 minutes after the store opened so I think they must have all sold on Christmas Eve.









I was a bit dissapointed at first but then I saw all of the half price Philosophy items so picked up the 'Peppermint Stick' shower gel. Yummy and only £7! I also remembered that I'd been wanting the Calvin Klein Down Town perfume since it launched not long ago but was holding off for the sales. I got this for £16.87, also half price and it's a 50ml size! Finally I spotted a few of the Soap & Glory 'Once upon a Lime' sets that contained items from the Sugar Crush range. I really like the body wash and body scrub so was pleased to see smaller versions of these in this set along with a full size Body Buttercream and a shower scrunchy. This was down from £18.00 to £9.00.

Next I headed to Debenhams but I didn't really see anything good there apart from perfume sets. Normally I buy several of these as they are hard to refuse at 1/3 or 1/2 off but as I already got 3 bottles for Christmas, I don't want to have too many hanging around my room!

Normally I miss the half price Christmas stock in Lush as I forget about Lush until it's too late but I was in the store just after it opened so I had a good range of stock to choose from! Yay!



I chose the Stardust set in a beautiful pink glittery star box containing Rock Star soap, Candy Mountain bubble bar, Snow Fairy shower gel, Snow Fairy Sparkle, Star Light Star Bright bath melt and the Space Girl bath ballistic. A fabulously girly mixture of very sweet scented goodies. Very pleased with this, especially since it cost just under £13!

I also went for the Best Wishes set containing the Golden Wonder bath ballistic, Snowcake soap and Luxury Lush Pud bath ballistic all for £6.75! I now have a nice mixture of some products I've used before (and love!) along with some new things I fancied trying.

I'll be heading back to the sales tomorrow for the start of the Fenwick and John Lewis sales so there could be a part 2 to this post!

Have you picked up anything from the sales?
Do you prefer to shop online or in-store?
