  • Trick to get 30% off all Boots No7 beauty, and it can be stacked with other deals

    Trick to get 30% off all Boots No7 beauty, and it can be stacked with other deals

    For example, get No7 Future Renew serum for £18 (normally £43). Online only

    Now Ended

    We've a trick to get a big discount on No7 beauty products online, but it's not on for long so you'll need to go quick... If you sign up to the No7 beauty Advent calendar waitlist*, you'll be given a code for 30% off No7 products, valid until 11.59pm on Wednesday 20 September. Once you've filled in your details, the code should be on the page where the sign-up box was.

    Signing up to the waitlist means Boots will email you a link when its No7 Advent calendar is available (we'll do our analysis on it closer to the time), but there's no obligation to buy it, so you can just sign up to get the 30% off code.

    Boots confirmed to us that the code's valid on all No7 branded items, and it can be stacked with other offers.

    To really max the deal, look for items that are both 3for2 AND 'save up to 20% off'

    We found the popular No7 Future Renew collection was included in these offers, so you can make some big savings if you've been waiting to try these products. Here are a couple of examples of how you can use the 30% off code and stack it with the other deals:

    • 3x Future Renew Serum*, 50ml – £18.04 each after deals stack (normally £42.95 each). It's £38.65 in the 'up to 20% off' deal. Add three to your basket and you'll get one 'free' as part of the 3for2 offer, making it £77.30 for three. Add the 30% off code at the checkout, and it drops to £54.11 – a huge saving of £74.74 on the normal price.

    • 1x Future Renew serum*, 50ml; 1x Day cream*, 50ml; 1x Night cream*, 50ml – £16.35 each after deals stack (normally £34.95 to £42.95 each). With the 'up to 20% off' deal, the serum is £38.65 and the creams are £31.45 each. Add one of each product to your basket to get one of the creams 'free', and it's now £70.10 for three. Add the 30% off code, and it drops to £49.06 – a whopping saving of £63.79 on the normal price.

    MSE Rhiannon says:

    This is a neat trick to get 30% off your usual No7 purchases, even if you don't want to buy the Advent calendar this year. It doesn't run for long, but don't use that as an excuse to buy anything you don't need or won't use. If you know you're giving No7 as gifts for Christmas this year and want to spread the cost, this could be a good opportunity to get a discount.

  • 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.

    • 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, it said 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.
