If you go online to Boots* or visit one of its stores (find your nearest*) until 11.59pm on Thu 7 Dec, you can get a Ted Baker 'Porcelain Rose Garden' toiletries set for £25 (norm £50), subject to availability. We totted up the value of items based on the cost of full-sized and similar items and the rough total came to £56.50, so we reckon it’s a decent deal for £25.

This is part of the annual Boots 'Star Gift' Christmas promotion, which is popular with MoneySavers and in the MSE Forum every year. Each week it releases an offer on a different gift product in the lead up to Christmas.

M&S logoM&S £35 beauty advent calendar (worth £250)*But you'll need to spend £35+ to get it

Go quick!

One of the most eagerly awaited beauty advent calendars for MoneySavers is the £35 M&S* version, available in stores (sold out online).

Even if you don’t have much use for an advent calendar, it’s often cheaper to buy beauty products in sets such as this - this one's filled with products worth £250+ if bought separately, including items from Ren, Rodial, Eyeko and Nails Inc.

The only catch is you'll also have to spend £35 on clothing and/or homeware (excluding furniture) to even be eligible to buy it, so technically you have to spend at least £70 at M&S to bag your calendar. It won’t confirm stock, but last year it sold out so go quick.

MSE Oli takes a peek behind the doors and has a look at some of the beauty advent calendar's contents...

MSE Rhiannon says:

If you're spending £35 in M&S anyway, it could be worth picking this up and opening it to split up to give as presents, not just for Christmas, but throughout the year.

No7 logo£170ish of No7 beauty products for £40*Its popular beauty advent calendar is in store & online at Boots

Go quick

If you’re a fan of Boots No7 beauty products, this could be a Christmas cracker, as even if you're not intending to open an advent calendar each day, this is a way of grabbing beauty items you'd buy anyway at a fraction of the normal price.

MSE Update, Thu 26 Oct 12.34pm: The No7 beauty advent calendar is now sold out online, but it is still available in some stores, while stock lasts.

Go online to Boots* or into large stores (find your nearest*), and you can get the No7 beauty advent calendar for £40, while stocks last. Although this wasn't officially going to be available until Wed 25 Oct, Boots has confirmed it's been made available a day early online and in some stores.

It contains 25 full-size and mini No7 beauty and skincare products including mascara, nail polish, eyeshadow and creams, which we reckon are worth £170ish if the products were bought separately – based on the proportionate cost of the full-sized equivalents – so getting it all for £40 could leave you in seventh heaven.

Standard delivery's £3.50 or you can collect in store for free. While Boots says there was plenty of stock when the beauty calendar went on sale on Tue 24 Oct, you may want to go quick as these are usually snapped up fast.

Here's what the No7 beauty advent calendar includes:

Superdrug logo£6 for two Superdrug hot cloth cleansers*Liz Earle-alike. Cruelty-free 150ml tube plus muslin cloth

Ongoing

Superdrug £6 Liz Earle-alike hot cloth cleanserIf you're looking for a cheaper alternative to the popular Liz Earle hot cloth cleanser, you can get a cheaper version from Superdrug* – it's normally £5.99 for a 150ml tube and muslin cloth but it's currently 2for1 on offer online, so now could be a good time to give it a try.

MSE Forumites swear it's just like the Liz Earle hot cloth cleanser, which is normally £16ish for 100ml plus the muslin cloth. It would be £47ish for the 300ml you'd get with two tubes of the 150ml Superdrug version, which means you could save £41ish by downshifting.

Obviously we can't guarantee you'll be able to face a change from the pricier brand, but it's worth keeping your eyes peeled for offers like this if you'd like to try it. 

See the Superdrug hot cloth cleanser forum post to see what forumites think.

Soap & Glory logoSoap & Glory 'Happy Glamper' set £16*Incl face wipes, hair brush, anorak & eyeliner

While stock lasts

MoneySavers always love offers from Soap & Glory, and we suspect this one will get you into a lather...If you go online to Boots* or visit one of its stores (find your nearest*), you can get a Soap & Glory 'Happy Glamping' survival kit for £16 while stocks last.

This gift set includes face wipes, full-size eyeliner, foldable hair brush and a showerproof anorak (not to be worn in the shower). If bought individually, the cosmetic and hair/body care items would cost £23.50. However, as you can't buy the anorak, brush or bag on their own, we reckon it's a good offer as you effectively get three bonus items unavailable elsewhere. Delivery's £3.50 if you order online, or you can collect in a store for free.

Boots says stock levels are good, but as Soap & Glory offers are always popular, you may need to go quick if you want to clean up with this one.

Soap & Glory 'Happy Glamper' survival kit includes:

  • 'Rushower' dry shampoo, 50ml, norm £2.50 at Boots.
  • 'Hand Maid' hand sanitiser gel, 50ml, norm £2.50 at Boots.
  • 'Sexy Muther pucker' red lipstick, norm £3.50 at Boots.
  • 'Original Pink' body spray, 100ml, norm £4 at Boots.
  • 'Off Your Face' face wipes, 25, norm £4.50 at Boots.
  • 'Supercat Skinny' black eyeliner, norm £6.50 at Boots.
  • 'Take Me Any Hair' foldaway hairbrush
  • Showerproof 'Glamorak' anorak
  • Cotton bag

Feelunique.com logo'Free' five beauty samples from Feel Unique*£3.95 delivery. Brands incl Bare Minerals, Ren, YSL etc

Ongoing

If you go online to Feel Unique*, you can use its 'Pick ‘n’ Mix' offer to receive five mini beauty samples for free. You'll just have to pay £3.95 delivery, which will then be returned to you in the form of a Feel Unique voucher code worth £3.95 to spend online against a future purchase (can't be another Pick 'n' Mix bundle).

The voucher code's valid for 60 days from the day your freebies are dispatched. You can’t use the voucher code on future Pick ‘n’ Mix orders, and you can only use one code at a time.

The minis available in this offer range from a 0.7ml Givenchy Very Irresistible EDT to a 50ml He-Shi tanning gel. Many other brands are included, eg, Kenzo, YSL, Shiseido, L’Occitane, Ren and Bare Minerals but will be subject to availability.  See full T&Cs* for this offer.

MSE Rhiannon says:

This offer's great if you want to try new products but don't want to take the plunge and buy a big bottle. It's also useful if you're planning to make your own beauty advent calendar as they're all under 100ml.

Lancome logoFree £4-£10ish Lancôme beauty samples*5ml serum plus one of five 5ml moisturisers at counters

Free sample

If you head to a Lancôme beauty counter (find your nearest*), you can ask for a free 5ml sample of Advanced Genifique serum plus one of five moisturisers. There's no voucher needed, and based on the full-sized 50ml versions, we've figured the moisturiser freebie to be worth between £3.55 and £6 and the serum £9.83 based on the full-sized 30ml version.

There are 2,000,000 samples available which will be released in batches throughout the year, but when they’re gone, they’re gone. Each Lancôme counter - there are 685 in the UK - will have the samples but larger stores will have a bigger allocation. You'll find the counters in department stores, Boots and some pharmacies.

The Lancôme samples are 5ml tubes, available in five types of moisturiser (plus Advanced Genifique serum):

  • Advanced Genifique serum - works on fine lines and dullness, for all skin types. Worth £9.83 based on the full-sized 30ml version.
  • Hydra Zen day cream - soothing and hydrating, for dry skin. Worth £3.55 based on the full-size 50ml version.
  • Visionnaire day cream - anti-wrinkle and for improved skin texture. Worth £5.40 based on the full-size 50ml version.
  • Visionnaire night cream - gel texture. Worth £5.30 based on the full-size 50ml version.
  • Renergie Multi Lift day cream - lifting and firming – for more mature skin. Worth £4.48 based on the full-size 50ml version.
  • Advanced Genifique cream - works on fine lines and dullness, for all skin types. Worth £5.90 based on the full-sized 50ml version.

In order to get your freebie, you'll need to answer a few questions about your skin type (whether your skin is shiny, tight, or normal), which should take about three minutes. Remember, there is no obligation to buy anything or act on any advice, but be prepared - it might try and upsell you. 

Free facial or hand massage

While you are at the counter, you can also get a free 15-minute facial or 10-minute hand massage, no booking required.

Boots logoBoots discounts via app*Download app and use offers in stores

Ongoing

If you have a Boots Advantage Card, you can get personalised offers and discounts at Boots* by downloading the Boots app. The offers vary for each person, as they are tailored to your shopping habits.

How to get the app and offers

  • Download the Boots app* via the App Store or Google Play.
  • Go to 'My offers' and sign in using your Advantage Card number. This links your card to the app and you can then select offers by loading them onto your card.
  • Choose the offers you'd like to use in 'Offers just for me' and select 'Load offer to Advantage Card'.
  • Next time you use your Advantage Card, the cashier or self-checkout will ask you if you want to use the offer in that transaction. 

What can I get?

These are some examples of offers we've seen when trying the app (of course as the offers are personalised, not everyone will receive the same ones):

  • £1.50 off when you spend £15 or more in a single transaction
  • 20% off a shower gel or body wash

The best thing about this deal is that the offers usually work on top of other in-store discounts. I got a £2 Nivea shower gel for 80p by using a '20% off' deal from the app on top of a half-price in-store offer.

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.

  • 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

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.

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.
