Tesco – Christmas in July

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 16 - 2012

Tesco’s Xmas Press Day is one of my favourites and is the only one I’ll be managing to get to this year…. something which gives me ultimate sad-face.  You’ll see why if you read this post.  Nonetheless, if I was going to be able to attend just the one, Mr. T really knows how to drag the festive spirit out of me.

The beady-eyed amongst you would have spotted a wide range of Christmas beauty goodies on display (that’s if you managed to scroll past the Christmas dessert table).  Let’s face it, Christmas is still ages away, so I’m not going to go into major details but the standout selections at Tesco this Christmas include:

New range of hair styling tools called T-H-X (Total Hair Experts) offering: curling tong, hair dryer, styling wand, digital straightener, volumising hair dryer, hot air styler, wave tong, and more.

Some great-looking affordable gift sets from the Extracts range

A new Steam Cream tin for Christmas!

Very sparkly hair accessories

and my favourite…

Kings & Queens is coming to Tesco!

I got a bit excited about the last one, you know, what with K&Q being my favourite bodycare range, ever.  I usually buy it online… and was doing cartwheels at the thought of being able to pick up my favourite shower gels along with my shopping… until I found out that it’ll only be sold on Tesco Direct.  Pop goes that bubble.  Sigh.  Still, at least I can get it delivered to store for free.

Anything in the above Yuletide selection taking your fancy?

    Did I spy a marmite teapot in the background of one of those images? Oh I so have to get that!

    Oh my gosh, this is quite apt in a way as let’s face it, our weather is far from Summery right now!

    Oh how jealous I am that you have access to Kings & Queens. The Honey body was is my absolute favorite. I buy at least 2 bottles every time I order from Zuneta (The only place I found that sells it AND delivers to the US) I must go to the UK soon…maybe at Christmas and fatten up at Tesco and haul some more Honey body wash gel! Thanks for the great pictures!

  5. We used to have Kings & Queens here at Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada, but then it disappeared and I cried. I loved the Caspar Myrrh so much! I need to order some from Zuneta I think.
    This looks like such a fab event!

  6. I really like the Bah Humbug cake! Thanks for sharing the pretty pictures. I’m getting excited about the holidays!
