With the summer sales in full swing I’ve traipsed around the shops and trawled through hundreds of online pages to bring you some of the best beauty bargains out there .
Marks and Spencer
Not one of my regular beauty haunts, I must admit but whilst browsing in the home department I wondered along (like a moth to a flame) to the beauty sale. Stock was limited but there’s some bargains to be had – this is what I picked up
Lazy Spa – Shape up contouring gel Was £6 now £1.50
This all over intensive body contouring gel contains CellActive® – Shape and witch hazel. Combined with massage, these active ingredients help to firm, tone and reduce the appearance of cellulite. With a beach holiday coming up, it’s got to be worth a go.
Busy But Beautiful Body Shimmer BalmWas £5 now £1.50
Give your skin a subtle luminescence with this sexy scented body balm. I was more attracted to the tin, which you can re-use as a great make-up brush holder or a stylish case for all your beautiful cosmetics, but the balm itself is a lovely highlighter type balm for the body and smells divine.
A lot of people don’t realise that ASOS stocks beauty treats, as well as fashion faves. Their ever expanding beauty department includes brands such as GHD, Nails Inc, Illamasqua and Soap and Glory.
There’s some great bargains to be had in their summer sale, here are my top pics…
Nails Inc SS11 Collection Was £25.00 NOW £16.25
Featuring four on-trend colours, ideal for creating this season’s colour-clash nails.

Inspired by the catwalks and this season’s on-trend colours, they are ideal for creating fashion-forward looks.
Soap & Glory ‘Clear Here’ Oil Control Daily Moisture Lotion 50ml Was £8.20 NOW £4.75
