If you’re still looking for an advent calendar, this could be the saver for you. Our tester fully rated and shared this festive find: “The variety of products is spot-on, from everyday skincare must-haves to party-perfect holiday makeup. Plus there’s hair and body care, as well as finds for the home” Use code EXTRA at checkout to get an extra 10 percent off the listed discounted price of £85, bringing the actual price down to £76.50.
The Medik8 C Tetra Serum, voted IndyBest’s Best Buy in our Vitamin C Roundup, is one of our skincare saviors. So it’s certainly exciting to see it on sale. Reduced to £29.25, with the EXTRA code reducing it to £26.32, we highly recommend you give it a try. Our tester raved about the ingredients, ease of use and skin brightening results and still uses this product as part of their daily routine.
This eyeshadow palette got the great title of best overall in our eyeshadow roundup. Our tester praised the number of shades, the intensity of the pigments, and the handy mirrored lid, and had nothing but good things to say about it. Now, with a decent saving of almost £10, by adding the code EXTRA at checkout, it works out to just £15.75.
To say that Sol de Janeiro’s butt cream is a fan favorite would be an understatement. While it may have a funny-sounding name, the powerhouse product has been heralded as a go-to for soft, nourishing skin. Now 20 per cent off, it’s been thrown into the bargain basket with a saving of £9.20, and you can get a further 10 per cent off by using the EXTRA code.
Estée Lauder Advanced Night Recovery Synchronized Multi-Recovery Complex Serum: Was £64, Now £48.96, Lookfantastic.com
Voted best for people in their 50s in our anti-aging serum round-up, this serum left our tester with more hydrated and visibly plumped skin. They claimed it helped clear their skin and leave it with a healthy-looking glow, and we couldn’t ask for much more than that. It’s currently £16 off, which softens the selling point as a great Christmas gift.
Sleek Make-up is already a low-cost label, but that sometimes makes the selling price a little sweeter. The liquid eyeliner costs almost £6, but with over 50 per cent savings, it’s now less than £3. Just don’t forget to add the code EXTRA at checkout to snag this bargain.
NYX Professional Makeup’s ultimate shadow palette: was £16, now £10.80, Lookfantastic.com
NYX’s ultimate eyeshadow palette scored 4.5/5 stars in our best eyeshadow guide and was named the best colorful pick. Our tester said it’s best “for anyone who wants to go wild with their makeup, whether you’re going for green, red, or a whole rainbow of colors.” So it could be the perfect gift for a friend or family member who loves makeup, especially since with code EXTRA it costs just over a tenner, which could make it a secret Santa budget depending on your price point.
With a massive 73 percent savings, this wireless hair straightener from Babyliss has shot to the top of our bargain list. We’ve already given this tool a thorough IndyBest review, praising how easy it was to use, the long-lasting results, and the portable aspect that made it perfect for big nights out or topping up on the go. If you’re in need of a new hair straightener or looking for an eye-catching Christmas gift, we highly recommend taking a look.
Currently reduced by nearly a tenner if you include code EXTRA at checkout, that’s a remarkable bargain when it comes to this cult-classic mascara buy. It is said to add volume to lashes and help separate them, minus any clumps, and the tube is also ergonomically shaped for a comfortable grip.
We used this mascara in our best mascara for sensitive eyes, where our reviewer praised the way the wand was able to “reach the inner lashes” while also “defining each lash separately and individually.” They also commented on the “long wear” of the mascara.
Elizabeth Arden eight hour cream skin protectant: was £28, now £17.64, Lookfantastic.com
An iconic multi-tasking skincare buy, you don’t want to miss out on this huge savings. Reduced by over £10 when you add the code EXTRA, this means the skin protector is now under £18. A thick ointment suitable for use on chapped lips, dry patches of skin, cuticles and more, infused with Vitamin E which should also help ease the pain.
