How did you go with the Boxing Day/Post-Christmas sales? I didn't do too badly. Actually I'm happy with my little hauls; I didn't go bat-shit crazy, yet still managed to pick up some nice bargains. Here's a look at what I snapped up!
~ Talika Eye Therapy Patch
~ Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hairspray
~ Ciate Paint Pots Nail Polish in Sugar Plum
~ Mecca Cosmetica Natural False Lashes
~ Origins Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay (sample)
~ Kate Somerville CytoCell Dark Circle Corrective Eye Cream (sample)
~ Kate Somerville ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment (sample)
It was exciting to get some cool products (seriously can't wait to try the eye patches) at a discount and know that I was also building up points towards my first Beauty Loop box. A bit annoying though, that lots of the items in the 50% off sale section were 'currently unavailable online'. I'm super-happy with my choice of samples as I've been wanting to try something from Kate Somerville. This online shopping experience was a rollercoaster alright; I went from excited to disappointed to frustrated then pumped and relieved when it was finally over!
~ Lord of Misrule Shower Scream (ROFL)
~ Bohemian Soap
~ Figs and Leaves Soap
~ Ice Blue Soap
I really wanted some Rose Jam shower gel, but by the time I got online on Boxing Day, nearly everything in the Sale section was 'out of stock'. We went to my local Westfield to see a movie five days later and I was shocked to see plenty of half price items still for sale. I then proceeded to drop dead, and my ghost bought three soaps and a large Lord of Misrule (the only size left) all at 50% off. SUPER HAPPY (even though I missed out on my favourite Rose Jam). Of course, because I was now a disembodied spirit, my product label read Lord of Misrule Shower 'Scream' instead of 'Cream'. Spooky! I really hope I like it because now I have a fucking massive 500 gram bottle. LOL
OZHair & Beauty
~ Sebastian Thickefy Foam
~ Redken 06 Volume Rootful Root Lifting Spray
~ Redken 10 Guts Volume Spray Foam
I love Sebastian Thickefy Foam. It's pretty much my favourite product for injecting volume, body and thickness into my fine hair. But it's so expensive. I just cannot spend $39 on a hair product without feeling sick. So I was thrilled to find it for $19 at OZHair & Beauty, even though I'd never shopped there before. It was free shipping once you spend $50, so I used the opportunity to add some Redken volume products to the old cart, since the brand is so raved about.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I also bought hubby some new undies from AussieBum, various goodies from ABC Shop online and I might have dropped $118 at Chemist Warehouse yesterday on their half price makeup! I went in with my family thinking only Rimmel was on sale, but the other makeup brands were also half price. Needless to say I swatched shit for ages until Mr 8 gave up and sat on the floor. I vaguely heard hubby muttering "Are we done yet?" on a continual loop in the background, although it was only when I sensed certain defeat in his voice that I decided I should probably get to the checkout. LOL. There are big savings on brands such as Rimmel, Maybelline, Revlon and Sally Hansen; I don't want to be an enabler, but you should probably haul arse to Chemist Warehouse and check it out!
Don't miss a post!
