Bargains

Lancome logoFree £8ish Lancôme beauty sampleFree Visionnaire or Genifique anti-aging serum at counters

Free sample

If you head to your nearest Lancôme counter you'll find two Lancôme skincare freebies up for grabs. No voucher's needed, just ask for a 5ml sample of either Genifique serum or Visionnaire serum - you'll only get one at a time.

Based on the full-sized 30ml versions, we’ve figured these freebies to be worth about £8.40 for the Genifique serum and £8.20 for the Visionnaire wrinkle corrector.

There are 500,000 samples available and 85% of these will be the popular Genifique serum. Each Lancôme counter in the UK will have samples and larger stores will have more allocation. You'll find the counters in department stores, Boots and some pharmacies.

As stock is limited when the samples are gone, they’re gone.

While you are at the counter, you can also get a free 15-minute face pampering session, no booking required. There is no obligation to buy anything or act on any advice, but be prepared - it might try and upsell you.

Ciate logoCiaté 10 nail polishes £25*Via Blagged code. Polishes norm up to £9 each

10,000 avail

MSE Update Tue 7 Apr, 8.44pm: Please ensure you enter the code using all capital letters and no space. It will only work if you type it exactly as we have - if copying and pasting, make sure you delete any unwanted spaces.

There also appears to be an issue with the code not working on some mobile devices. So if you're having problems on your smartphone or tablet, try a PC or laptop instead if you can. We're looking into this and will update here when we have more information.

If you enter the MSE Blagged code BLOCK70 online at beauty brand Ciaté* you'll get a set of 10 full-size nail polishes for £25 (down from £83.34). Delivery's free.

You can choose one of two sets - Classics and Pop Brights - which normally cost £6-£9 each, a few of which can be found in the Ciaté sale. With 10 for £25 via our code, this works out at £2.50 per polish.

This is an ongoing offer until all 10,000 sets are sold. Ciaté has warned these orders may take up to 14 working days to be delivered.

More info

This offer cannot be used with any other promotions or codes.

Poundland logo£1 branded beauty bargainsIncl Stila, Rimmel, Max Factor, Eylure and OPI

Ongoing

As the wonderful Dolly Parton said: "It costs a lot of money to look this cheap". And she's right, buying make-up isn't easy on the pocket.

So we've done the glamorous job of scouring our local pound shops looking for branded beauty bargains. Some are discontinued (they were the hottest trends once, so we think anyway) and others are still in the shops with a big price tag.

Click the image below to see our haul:

Poundworld

  • Stila sheer colour tinted moisturiser 50ml - £21 elsewhere online
  • Boholash, Salonsystem diamond false lashes - £7.99 elsewhere online
  • Elegant Touch Union Jack nails - £6.45 at Boots
  • OPI nail shatter 15ml - RRP £13, but we've seen them for £4.49 delivered
  • Miss Eylure false eyelashes - £4.09 at Superdrug
  • NYC false lashes - £2.99 at Superdrug

Poundland

  • Rimmel Wake Me Up mousse - £5 at Tesco
  • Rimmel Glam Eyes trio - £4.99 (incl delivery) elsewhere online
  • TOWIE false eyelashes - £13 for a 3-pack elsewhere online, so about £4 each
  • Calvin Klein sheer creme eyeshadow - RRP £1.50, but we saw it for £5 elsewhere online
  • Rimmel 60 seconds nail polish - was £3.70 at Tesco, now £2.70

This is what we found in our local stores. Speaking to Poundland and Poundworld, they say you can get these items in most stores, while stocks last.

Can cosmetics go off?

The British Skin Foundation says:

"Cosmetic products will remain safe to use provided they are stored under suitable conditions and not subjected to extreme temperatures."

"To ensure the maximum durability of cosmetic products, they should be stored in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight and with the lids firmly closed."

It also said the use by date on cosmetics, is from when you open the product. So if it says 18 months on the box, it should last for 18 months from when you open it, provided it's been stored correctly.

Origins logoFree Origins mini-facials & product samplesMake advance booking at ANY of its counters

Ongoing
Book ahead at any Origins counter across the UK. After a skincare consultation, you'll get a mini-facial, comprising a cleanse, exfoliation and face mask.

You can also pick up some free samples, these are subject to availability, so you'll only get them if they're in stock.

Sales and Discounts

Superdrug logoSuperdrug 10% off toiletries for students*Via NUS Extra card & registered Beautycard. In stores only

Ongoing

If you're a student with an NUS Extra card, you can get 10% off toiletries at health and beauty retailer Superdrug*. You'll need a registered Beautycard as well (Superdrug's free loyalty card). The discount's only available in its stores, not online.

Who is eligible for an NUS Extra card?

The NUS Extra card is available to all students aged over 16 years (including distance learners, vocational and part-time students). It costs £12 and is valid for 12 months from the date of purchase. You can use it to get discounts at lots of stores and websites, including Asos, Spotify, Amazon and Domino's.

More info

Excludes prescriptions, phone cards, mobile phones, postage stamps and baby milk.

You can't use the card with any other coupon offer, discount card (such as staff discount) or with selected in-store offers.

Boots logoBoots 10 points (instead of 4) per £1 for over-60sJoin the free Boots Health Club

Age 60+
Boots Advantage cardholders aged 60 or over can get 10 Advantage Card points per £1 spent (usually 4 per £1) on Boots branded products by signing up to Boots Health Club.

Once registered, you'll be sent a printable voucher via email to show in-store, with your Advantage card, for the extra points.
MSE Charlotte says:

Each point's worth 1p when redeemed on virtually any Boots-branded product in-store at Boots, so this is effectively a 10% discount on Boots branded items. Don't assume Boots is always cheapest though, if you can buy items 10%+ cheaper elsewhere, go there instead. See full Boost Loyalty Points guide for more Boots tips.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.
