Boots discount section - Beauty bargains I found today

Just a quick one today, I felt the need to share my bargain finds with you (and it would go on longer than an Instagram caption!) SO, when I go into Boots I always check out the discount shelf - y'know the one that's hiding at the back with all the odds and ends on. Whether its a misshaped packet or a discontinued line, most the time there is something in there that is worth snapping up. A lot of the time I find the discounts are due to a change of packaging, essentially the same item but with a revamped label for a new season. I often find high children's SPF in there, which is defo worth stocking up on for summer. However, I am not such a fan of the supermarket chilled discounted section, mainly because it ends up in a fight. As soon as the discount sticker trolley is wheeled out people are around it literally vulturing it up all fisticuffed. Not for me thanks.


In Boots however, I found two tanning products and a dry shampoo. I have to go in with the main find first, I can't wait to divulge, and that is the Vita Liberata Trystal Minerals. This is a self tanning bronzer for the face, adding instant colour but also develops a tan too. I have never tried this brand but have heard good things about it, so when I found this reduced from £35.00 down to £7.00 (Yes I just heard you gasp) I had to give it a go. I went over to the tanning section just to try and work out why, my conclusion is that they are now only selling one shade instead of two (in that store anyway) so they were shifting the other shade. Now, the shade I got is medium, and being fair normally I would go for the lightest shade. However it was too much of a bargain to let go, so I will just have to use sparingly and see how I go! It also has a "luxury" Kabuki brush in, which actually is quite nice and soft.


Second item, L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Self Tanning Tinted & Shimmering gel (can you tell I have summer on the brain now!) I could not work out why this one is reduced, I found it online for £8.99 so maybe a packaging change? anyway I snaffled it for one whole pound. I like using tinted tanners on my legs in the summer, if I put on a skirt and have the "oh god I look like death" kinda vibe, I can put something like this on and get an instant pay off. Plus I can see exactly where I am putting it!


Lastly a dry shampoo, Umberto Giannini Glam Cheat Volumising Dry Shampoo. Now normally I avoid dry shampoos because I just don't really like the texture. However I have only tried one brand so really I should give it another whirl - plus this one is volumising which appeals to my lank locks. This was reduced from £4.00 down to £1.50.


It's definitely worth having a look at the discount section, you may find a hidden gem, or get to try something new. Have you found anything good Boots bargain bucket?
