True to form here in the UK, one or two glorious days of sunshine and warmth have been quickly chased away by dark clouds, gusts of wind, rain and storms. If you’re staying in, exhausted or simply need some R&R this weekend, it’s the perfect excuse to do a bit of window shopping online and bargain buying.
It’s also worth noting that if you’re buying your health and beauty bits from Superdrug you can order online and collect in store for free, or get free delivery when you spend over £10. If you have a Beauty Card (their free loyalty card), standard home delivery is free on any order. Beauty Card holders also get an extra 20% off fragrances this weekend.
Replacement brush heads for electric/battery powered toothbrushes can be really expensive, so I like to keep an eye out for discounts. You can currently get 4 Oral B Precision Clean brush heads at less than half price for only £8.48 (usual price £16.99). Superdrug also have a range of toothbrushes from the Oral B Pro range at half price, so you can snap up a new electric toothbrush for around £25.
Holland & Barrett are currently running a better than half price sale. Top picks include :
350 1000mg Omega 3 Capsules at £11.49 (was £34.99) / 100 B12 capsules for £4.09 (was £8.19) / 500g Manuka Honey at £18.49 (was £36.99) / 60 Evening Primrose capsules for £7.49 (was £14.99) / 120 Flaxseed Linseed Oil capsules for £6.84 (was13.69) / 200 Magnesium tablets for £9.17 (was £18.35).
There’s a range of Venus razors and shave gels at half price at Superdrug so you can pick up the Venus Swirl razor for only £5.97 and the Gillette Sensitive Skin Satin Shave gel (I really like the Satin gel range) for £1.73.
Want to get on board with juices and smoothies? The Breville Blend Active is down to £21.99.
There’s a rather pretty looking Revlon foot spa at £19.99 on Deal Of The Day, so you’ll have to be quick as it’s for Sunday only!
Planning a day trip, a long weekend or a week long break? Stock up on travel sized essentials at 3 for £3.
Want to keep yourself occupied at home? Art, whether it’s sketching, colouring in or doodling, can be great therapy for anxiety. I love the Staedtler Noris Club Fibre felt tips (pack of 20) that you can pick up for £6.99 from Amazon. There are also some really funky colouring books, such as the Animal Kingdom one for £3.99.
If you fancy trying something a little different, there are some fab watercolour pencils also by Staedtler for only £6.61 for a pack of 24. It took me some getting used to when I first tried these out, but they’re great fun!
