Have I mentioned that I love a good bargain? I have? Well, let me say it again: I LOVE a good bargain. Any chance to save a rand or a hundred, I’m there like a bear. With time being so scarce for me these days, I prefer buying all of the essentials in bulk. One shop and I’m done. Stores where I can get all of my goodies in the same place? Even better. Online store? Ding ding ding, jackpot! Well, Clicks is having its infamous Beauty Fair at the moment, where they’re running some awesome deals on a variety of their products – from skin and hair care to fragrances. And if that’s not enough, if you’re a ClubCard member, you can get 10% off all colour cosmetics, across all brands.
I can’t think of a better time to do your beauty shop. The fair is almost over but if you haven’t managed to grab your beauty essentials yet, you still have a chance as it ends this week. No worries if you don’t have time to shop in-store, just go onto their site and place your order online. Use their click and collect service, do your shopping over your lunch break, and fetch it when you’re ready. I thought I’d share some of my favourites that are currently on special at the moment. Just in case, you know, you’re looking to try something new or stock up on your old faves.
Natural hair products – 3 for 2
I’ve been raving about the awesome selection of natural hair products that have recently landed on Clicks’ shelves. And I know some of you are on a budget, so what better way to get all of your hair care products in a range than with this offer at Clicks? From my old faithful ORS and Shea Moisture to newbie fave Cantu, you can grab 2 and get the third for free. Some of you have asked me where I get my bomb hair gels from, I get most of them from Clicks. You can also get Tresemmé and Clicks’ hair tools which are on promo, also 3 for 2. It’s a naturalista’s dream to be able to get her hair goodies at the same place she gets all of her other beauty needs.
Skin care products – 3 for 2
Yes, all skincare products. From your lotions to washes, if you get this (and next, and next) months’ face essentials at Clicks, you’ll be saving a ton. My favourite goodies on offer? Johnson’s of course. You can get all of your Johnson’s arsenal here with the third product bagged for free. I love using all of the same brand as part of my routine and the Johnson’s range works so nicely together. Another fave of mine is L’Oréal’s Pure Clay Masks which work perfectly for the 3 for 2 special so you can grab all three jars to multimask. For an extra special me-time treat, you can also combine them with their new Pure Clay washes.
Colour Cosmetics – 10% off for ClubCard members
If I were stuck on a deserted island, and could only have 1 item of cosmetic with me, it would be lipstick. Hands down. I’m a strong believer that a great lippie can change your mood. I’m really loving a lot of L’Oréal right now, from their mascaras to eyeliners. But my fave is their collection of lippies, particularly the L’Oréal Colour Riche Matte Obsession in Mahogany Studs and Plum Tuxedo. The Mahogany is a beautiful nude brown that works so well for us brown girls and Plum is a deep velvet purple. I love these lippies because they’ve finally cured my matte lippie phobia. No cracks, no ashy look, they glide on easily and stay on the whole day. LOVE. Their mascara game is so on point too. I’ve been raving about their Volume Million Lashes line and their Miss Manga. An extra fab thing is if you spend R290 on L’Oréal cosmetics, you’ll get a free gift box of L’Oréal goodies – whether you’re a member or not. Another staple fave is Revlon’s Colour Stay Gel Envy line. So much so, about 80% of my DIY mani station at home is a Revlon colour. They apply beautifully, last a good 7-10 days and the range of colours is killer.
If after all of that you still want to add a bit of luxury to your cart, grab yourself a bottle (or two) of your favourite perfume while you’re at it. If you’re looking for a new signature scent, Clicks has a wide range of fragrances for spring. Many of them come with a complimentary 100ml lotion, like this one from Coach. Now, if you’re smart, you’d grab a couple of these now as they make such great holiday gifts, birthday presents – and self-pampering treats too of course 🙂
