Boots Hair & Skin Gummies – £10 + 3for2 + Free Click&Collect
I came across a Boots own brand of beauty gummies the other day described as being a “glowing blend with selenium, biotin and zinc for healthy hair, skin and nails.”
I compared them against one of the most popular brands that cost £20 for 60 gummies. They appear to contain the same amounts of each vitamin and mineral! The difference is that the Boots gummies for 60 only cost £10.
They also offer 3 for 2 across their supplements range. That essentially means you can get 3 x 60 gummies (180 gummies) for £20, the same price one tub of the pricier ones. Bargain! I’ve just ordered some of these to give them a try but I’ll be mixing and matching the 3for2 offer so I can stock up on more magnesium supplements, too.
For a limited time, they’re also offering free click & collect on any amount (usually £15). Free home delivery for orders over £25.
This is in addition to a range of other offers on the site, like £10 off a £20 spend on No7 products.

Free Health & Wellness Support Groups & TalkHealth Plus Membership
The TalkHealth Partnership is a great company offering a range of support groups for different health conditions, online health clinics where you can ask specialists your questions, articles, blogs & more on their website. I actually blog for TalkHealth on occasion, and I’ve participated in several of the support programmes, all of which I’ve found to be fab.
They more recently launched the TalkHealth Plus membership for access to more content, which they’re currently offering for free.
Check out TalkHealth here, where you can sign up for a free account & free TalkHealth Plus membership.
This isn’t strictly a frugal find, but it’s a well priced magazine subscription with a difference. The Posability magazine is for the disabled and chronically ill community, providing a range of content from lifestyle, personal stories, discussion on poignant topics, competitions and more. For disabled and families with disabled children, this magazine serves those who’ve mostly been left out from mass media and magazines, and they’ve been doing so for about 10 years.
The magazine subscription is £15 per year, which supports this company to continue doing such great stuff. Various articles can also be found on the website.

Get Frugal With Your Mobile Bills (UK)
If you have a contract phone or PAYG, when was the last time you shopped around to check you’re getting the best value for your needs? It might be a good time to see what’s out there so you’re not paying more than necessary.
I’ve used GiffGaff for, shock horror, about 10 years now. Of course prices have gone up in that time as all network providers have hiked fees, but they still seem to be better value for money in many ways. Their PAYG rates are lower than the big brands I’ve compared them to, and their Goodybags offer great value at a range of different price points. What I like about the Goodybags is that they’re just for 30 days so there’s no contract to be tied in to.
For instance, a £6 p/month Goodybag gives you unlimited calls, unlimited texts and 500MB of data. You can roll the contract each month or just buy a Goodybag as and when you think you’ll get use from it. When a Goodybag isn’t in use, you can just use pay as you go credit. I find the website and the app are both pretty decent to navigate, making it convenient to check your balance or top-up.
GiffGaff also sell new & refurbed phones, sometimes at a discount to what they’re priced at elsewhere. You also get free GiffGaff to GiffGaff calls and texts providing you top-up credit or buy a Goodybag within that 3 months period.
Wherever in the world you are, it might be worth seeing what you get for your money with your current provider and whether there are others out there that could save you some pennies.
