If the UK’s unseasonable weather has got you longing for distant climes, you may be finding it hard to part with your Thomas Cook brochure (remember when people actually used to go and pick up stacks of holiday brochures from the travel agents?!).  You might be planning your last minute package break in the sun, or looking forward to your meticulously planned road trip around the foothills of central Greece – either way, we could all do with saving some pennies on our holiday purchases couldn’t we?

I’ve got two deal alerts to tell you about today, the first one is from luxury flash sales website, Cocosa.

They’re currently offering a 50% discount on a selection of beauty brands including: Margaret Dabbs, St Tropez, Sachajuan, Rodial, Bite, Strivectin and This Works.  My picks of the sale are shown above – especially the St. Tropez set which delivers great value for money on a top-selling brand.  The Holiday Boutique sale runs until the 26th August… but the most popular items will sell out long before then.

.

I’ve also just got wind (I kinda want to leave that sentence right there) of another beauty deal from Cult Beauty who are doing a special GWP in the form of a “lucky dip” goody bag when you spend over £40 on the site.  And by “lucky dip”, I mean… only partially secretive because I can reveal, via the power of copy n’ paste that you’ll actually get:

Institut Esthederm Technology Cream (10ml)
Collin Micellar Radiance Cleansing Water (50ml)
d.j.v. Beautenizer Fiberwig LX Mascara

PLUS ONE OF THESE…

Paul Labrecque Daily Shampoo & Conditioner (30ml)
OR
Philip B Russian Amber Imperial Shampoo & Conditioning Creme (15ml)

PLUS ONE ‘LUCKY’ BEAUTY TREAT FROM….

BECCA Resurfacing Primer (15ml)
DuWop Revolotion Bronzing Body Moisturiser (29.6ml)
Ultrasun Ultra Sensitive SPF 50 (15ml)

That’s non-too-shabby for a £40 order now is it?  While stocks last!

Happy shopping beauty fiends, I’m off to see a man about a washing machine, the glamour.
