Deal Alert: Travalo £5.50 each with free delivery at CheapSmells!

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 4 - 2011

Argh, look what happens when I go away… all the awesome deals come out!  I’m loving this one in particular courtesy of CheapSmells (I typo’ed CheapSmalls then and gave myself a massive smirk).

Back to this Deal Alert – Remember when I talked about the Travalo Perfume Atomisers?  Well, they’re fairly inexpensive to begin with but CheapSmElls are offering them at an unbeatable price this weekend only…

£5.50 with gratis delivery and you can carry a fair amount of your favourite perfume around with you wherever you go.  I took my Travalo on holiday with me this week (filled with Apothecary EDT incase you care) and it was fabulous for quick on the go spritzes.

Hope you’re having a lovely Sunday, it’s Saturday night as I’m writing this and I’ve not long got home from my 5 day break in London, want to go back already!

If you’re interested, they’ve got the Milani Holographic polishes on sale at $3.99 each, the Milani Jewel FX (Lippmann dupes) on sale at $3.99 each and bunch of lovely NYX Rouge Cream blushes on sale at $4.75 each.

Me?  Well… I’ve just done a shopping basket drive-by.  Filled her up, hit ‘checkout’ and balked at the shipping price (it’s not extortionate but still, $17) and now I’m umm-ing and ahh-ing.  I normally wouldn’t hesitate but I bought 4 Zoya polishes yesterday, I’m currently “watching” a fragrance on eBay and I’m going on holiday next week.  What to do, what to do….

If you’re fancying a splurge, tell me what you’re wanting!  We can either talk one another away from the edge or flex our enabling muscles!

Deal Alert: Bioeffect EGF Serum – Today Only

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 24 - 2011

In celebration of the Icelandic ‘wonder’ serum’s 1st birthday, Bioeffect are offering a free travel-sized version of their serum with every full-sized purchase.

Sadly, too rich for my blood (I might change my mind when the fine lines start creeping in properly), the £125 serum contains the revolutionary ingredient, Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF).  A substance which occurs naturally in human skin and has the ability to speed up the rate of cell turnover.

You’ll be hard pushed to find too many negative reviews of this product – trust me, my Mum’s had me searching many-a-time.  I applied for a sample bottle last year and although I’m not quite at the age where I might experience visual results to WOW me, I did notice an impressive boost in general hydration.  So much so, that the ‘crepey’ effect I get down the sides of my nose disappeared completely and the pores in that same are appeared more refined thanks to the improved skin structure.

If it’s so wonderful, why haven’t I bought it?  Well… because it’s £125 and it’s 15ml.  That’s a lot of money for not a lot of product.  If you have a lot of money to spend on not a lot of product.  I thoroughly recommend giving it a go.

Bioeffect EGF Serum is available today only with FREE next day delivery and a free travel-sized version.  If you’ve been contemplating that purchase, now is the time to go for it.

Deal Alert: Massive saving! Elemis Tri-Enzyme Set on QVC (TSV)

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 20 - 2011

Fancy a new luxury skincare regime to ease you gently into the cooler months?  How about saving around 60% while you’re at it?

For today only, you can pick up an Elemis Tri-Enzyme three-piece set on QVC for a hugely discounted price of £44.80

Let me show you how the saving works out.  For a total of £44.80, you get…

1 x Elemis Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing Facial Wash (200ml) – RRP: £28.00 (roughly)
1 x Elemis Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing Gel Mask (50ml) – RRP: £46.00
1 x Elemis Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing Night Cream (50ml) – RRP: £41 (roughly)

Combined, the usual RRP on these three products would be approximately £115!

If you’d like to read a review of the mask, I featured it last year – also be sure to read the comments because there’s some interesting additional input from an esthetician AND a biochemist!

If I hadn’t just bought myself a new lens for my camera this week (£320 ouch), I would be having a little splurge today.

Do you ever take advantage of the TSVs on QVC?

Deal Alert: Four Graze Boxes delivered to your door for just £5

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 18 - 2011

I’ve seen these Graze snack boxes reviewed on a number of beauty blogs over the last year and when I saw this deal pop up last night, I took the plunge!

The deal’s valid until midnight tonight and I’ve bought it for Mr. L because I’m still on mega-diet-from-hell until I’ve shed my final couple of stone.  It’s always the last push that’s the hardest huh?

Is £5 for 4 a good deal?  I know they sometimes give one away for a £1 but I don’t think you can get more than that.

Let me know if you indulge and more importantly, tell me what your favourite Graze selections are so I don’t choose the revolting ones!

Don’t forget the promo code NAILS and be aware that the offer ends on the 21st!

NEW Elemis Sp@home and a tantalising offer from TimeToSpa!

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 12 - 2011

Elemis have recently introduced a new bodycare concept to the brand’s repertoire with Sp@home, a range designed to turn the mundane into something a little more indulgent, helping you to create your very own Elemis spa, at home!

Based around FIVE main categories, the Sp@home range includes everything you need to recreate a more therapeutic experience in your own bathroom.  From bath elixirs to hand lotions, hard-working body oils to temple balms for instant relaxation.  They’ve even developed a new room mist to help create the perfect atmosphere.

Infact, the room mist has become a surprising favourite for me.  I was worried it might be a little bit overpowering, like walking into a very alternative crack den!  My (slightly mental) fears were misguided because the Quiet Mind Room Mist* is gorgeous and for something that I considered a bit ‘unecessary’, I’m going through my bottle at a rate of knots.  Infact, it hasn’t even made it back onto my dressing table because I keep it on the floor by my bed so I can spritz my pillow before I climb in!

The Tranquil Touch range is destined for best-seller status with some of the best patchouli-based aromatics I’ve had the pleasure of sniffing.  Warming, woody and creamy with great depth and complexity that you wouldn’t expect to find in a range of bodycare products.

Prices start from around £14.00 but there’s a rather decent offer on at TimeToSpa.co.uk for the whole of August…

If you spend over £50 on the website, you can choose a full size Sp@home shower gel worth up to £20.50.  And let’s face up to it, it’s not exactly difficult to spend £50 on Elemis now is it?

Do you make attempts at recreating the spa experience in your own home?  What’s your favourite product to get you in the mood for a bit of pampering?

Deal Alert: £17 for £35 worth of Murad Skincare goodies!

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 10 - 2011

Over at Living Social, they’ve got a cracking Murad Skincare offer which is only live for a little while longer.  Spend £17 and receive £35 worth of store credit for Murad.co.uk, a solid bargain for anyone wanting to dip their toe into a high-end skincare brand.

Perhaps you’re considering your first foray into anti-aging products or just want something a bit special to tackle those Summer oilies?  Either way, a 51% saving from an official supplier is not to be sniffed at!

Mr. L loves the Energizing Pomegranate Cleanser so it’s a shame I’m not buying it for him eh?  Instead, I’ve got my eye on the new Hybrids Skin Perfecting Primer (dewy) but I’m a tad concerned it may be a bit dark for my skintone.  I’ll have to search for reviews (of course!)

Swatched: Mavala collaboration with Elle, free with August’s issue

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 30 - 2011

I only received these Mavala/Elle polishes yesterday* but thought I’d better get them swatched and up on here ASAP as many of you were unsure about whether the shades were unique enough to warrant multiple magazine purchases.

Well, they’re standard cremes, no hidden fireworks but they are all formulated beautifully.  Two coats is shown for each swatch below which is impressive when you consider that I didn’t bother with a top coat and they were touch dry within a couple of minutes.

In other words… if you have 100 reds, oranges and greys already, you’re not gonna need these but if you’re looking for fuss-free, handbag-sized backups of some of your most used and ‘go with everything’ shades, you could do far worse than picking them up.  Oh and don’t forget the free magazine 😉 (sorry Elle)

.

Elle magazine goes on sale from the 3rd August, cover price is £3.70

* PR sample

Hands up if you remember the last time Elle collaborated with Mavala on an exclusive nail polish?  That would be me, it was pretty unforgettable after all.

Well, they’ve been putting their heads together again and this time have come up with not one, not two… but THREE exclusive polish shades that ELLE will be giving away free with next month’s magazine!

The magazine goes on sale from the 3rd August and I foretell them flying off the shelves quicker than you can get them in your baskets so if any of the shades take your fancy… be quick.

Will you be picking one (or three) up next week?
