Heads Up On Soap & Glory Offer!

Every year, I blog about the fabulous Soap & Glory offer at Boots. Usually around the same time each year, the biggest S&G Christmas set is slashed to half price. This year it's The Best Of All gift set, which will be dropping to £27 from £60! Doesn't take a mathematician to work out that's even better than half price! The offer will start tomorrow (Friday 14th December) at 7am and I'm going to shock you by saying for once, I don't think I'm going to buy it! Every year, I've stayed up until midnight then woken at 6am in the hope I could buy it online or else my Mum has gone to Boots before it opens to get it, but I feel I have a ridiculous stash of S&G stuff to get through that I don't actually need more just now. Saying that, I use the hand and foot creams every day (so always need them) and have grown to quite like the mascara. Sexy Mother Pucker I love too, but have loads of, same goes for the shower gel and body butter (yes I'm still working my way through the 1 litre special edition tub). So if you're curious as to exactly what's inside and the value then here's a rundown:
CLEAN ON ME SHOWER GEL £5.50
SMOOTHIE STAR BODY LOTION £10
PEACHES & CLEAN CLEANSING MILK £7
THE RIGHTEOUS BUTTER £10.50
SUGAR CRUSH BODY SCRUB £8
HAND FOOD £5
HEEL GENIUS £5.50
THICK & FAST MASCARA £10
SEXY MOTHER PUCKER LIP GLOSS IN PUNCHBOWL £9

That lot comes in at £70.50, so you're normally saving a little more than a tenner on the set (plus you get it all in a pretty bag too), but you're saving £43.50 if you can snag one tomorrow. Be warned you need to be quick. Yes, Boots will get extra stock in especially for this event (I think mine had at least 100 sets last year), but in the past, stock has already gone by lunchtime and you'll rarely (not sure if it's ever happened) be able to pick it up another day. Last year, I got the set off my points, which meant I paid nothing for it-a double whammy bonus!! Do you think you'll be queueing up for this one? Let me know if you get it x

  2. Gawd, I'm exactly like you - always got loads of S&G kicking about. BUT, I'm probs gonna go for it and get them in anyway - usually one for Xmas for my sis and one for me. I'm told it's included in 3-4-2 this year but I'm not sure if that's actually the case!

    1. I'm sure I have enough body lotion and shower gel to last a few lifetimes! Ooh, yeah it isn't usually in 3 for 2 once the offer is on. I've been avoiding Boots this year actually, was quite disappointed with the Christmas gifts and usually spend hundreds of £'s, but nothing took my fancy.

  3. I've never actually tried much in the way of S+G, but I have £45 worth of points... am tempted. Thankfully, a six week old baby means that I'm up at stupid o'clock, so may try and get in there online!

    1. Yes online too. Usually their site plays up a little as everyone is cramming to buy it (my experience from previous years, but it works eventually).

    1. I'm finding it so hard to resist considering it's still in stock online. My local had loads too even at lunchtime. I could get it off my points...but trying to be good.

  7. I saw this offer before christmas and stupidly thought 'nah I don't need any more smellies etc'. Then the other day I was aimlessly surfing the web when I found your pretty blog and this post and thought damn I've missed out!

    Good news is though - I went to a large Boots store yesterday and managed to pick up TWO of these (one for myself and another to stash away as a gift for someone). It appears as though the Boots store in question hadn't advertised that they were only £27 each so people were ignoring them!

    Thanks for the prod for getting myself a good bargain! :-)
