Turns out i wasn't the only one who had this idea, as the trafford centre was packed as usual! But i still managed to pick up some bargains :)
First off i popped into LUSH. I got three gifts, two of which were marked down christmas ones and one was a full priced, non christmas gift with some of my favs in....
Ice blue soap
Mr Butterball bath ballistic
Cinders bath ballistic
Happy Hippy showel gel
Father frost soap
Strawberry santa shower jelly
Happy hippy shower gel
Up you gets emotibomb
+ 2 x 10% off vouchers and a £5 off voucher with the gifts
total price = £24.14
Next up was the Body Shop, and with body butter at £5 i couldn't resist getting more than one!
They also had an offer for any two big bottles of shampoo for £12, i've never tried Body Shop shampoos so i thought i'd give them ago.
and last but not least, a mattifying day cream from the sea weed/oily combination range. I was impressed by their tea tree blemish fading night lotion so decided to invest in one of their day creams.
Raspberry body butter
Blueberry body butter
Peach Body butter
Nettle oil balancing shampoo
Olive glossing shampoo
Sea weed mattifying day cream
Total price (including 10% off and an extra £5 off with my Love Your Body card) = £27
Note: Love Your Body cards are a great investment (if you like the body shop that is!) You pay an annual membership fee of £5 for the card, and with the card you get...
. 10% off ALL purchases for a year.
. £5 off in your birthday month
. £5 off on your 4th stamp on the card (you can only get stamps with store perchases)
. £10 off on your 8th stamp
. invitations to exclusive member events
. exclusive offers
. updates on product launches and offers
Over all, i'd say that was a good haul :)
i'll probably do reviews on the LUSH stuff soon, as there is a lot to get through!
