There are two types of people. Those who love stepping foot in a beauty shop. And those who don’t. Not because you don’t like shopping or anything. No. Just because the moment you enter the shop, it’s like Disneyland for beauty and you don’t know what to pick. So you stay ages walking around. Before finding what you want. Or you have another alternative. You go online, have a browse, spot a few things you want and then, head over to the shop. Believe me, it makes everything so much easier. So when Sally Beauty UK got in touch to offer me just that, well I could not say no, could I?
First of all, a few words about Sally Beauty UK. They are the world’s largest supplier of professional quality beauty products and have one of the most extensive ranges of beauty and hair care products in the UK. Sally sells to both consumers and professional customers – including hair stylists and hair, nail and skin salon owners. They store over 5000 professional products and their top selling brands include Maria Nila, Sugarbear hair, GHD, Tigi Hair, OPI, Lord & Berry, Sienna X, Wella Professional, L’Oreal Professional.
Sally Beauty UK gifted me a £50 gift card to spend in store on beauty as part of their Spring Into Beauty campaign. That’s not the best part, but wait. I went in store last week with Laura, my former flatmate from Glasgow. Let me tell you what I laid my eyes on. Spring is finally here even though we don’t really feel it, and I had not updated my nail polish collection in ages. I am also going to Tuscany in April so I need everything to be perfect.
Choosing between all the fabulous nail polish colors was so hard but I managed to make a choice: OPI Infinite Shine Gel Effect Nail Lacquer in Purpletual Emotion (which Laura also had a crush one and treated herself to) and OPI Lisbon Collection Nail Lacquer Tile Art to Warm Your Heart Blue. And because a manicure would not be perfect without topcoat, I choose, on Laura’s recommendation, the Sèche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. The best one to keep your nails perfect even though you might be doing the dishes! What she said.
Last but not least, the two other picks of my haul are a shampoo and a conditioner. Mine was running out so I needed to buy some anyway. It was just the perfect timing. I went for the Glycerol + Coco Oil Nutrifier range from L’Oréal Professionnel Paris which I think is only available in stores for now. The range aims to repair damaged hair, which is perfect for me, really. I am the worst when it comes to hair care.
I will let you know how I get on with these. Especially the nail polishes as I really like the colors. However, the most exciting thing about this haul is that, from the 1st to the 30th of April, when you spend £50 in store or online, you get a beauty box full of goodies worth £70. How cool is that?! Just for your info, here is the content of the beauty box:
● Cosmetic Blending Sponge (exclusive product)
● Comedone Extractor (exclusive product)
● Nip + Fab Kale Moisturiser 10ml
● Retinol Face Mask
● Skintruth Moisturiser 100ml
● Tantruth The Secret 100ml
● Salon Systems Strip Lash
● Marvelbrow Instant Eye Mask
● Crystallite Earrings
● Lord & Berry Mini Black Eyeliner
● OPI Mini Mango Avojuice 28ml
● Color Club Nail Polish in the shade Mrs Robinson 15ml
● China Glaze Base Coat 14ml
I think I have all I need for quite some time. Indeed, the beauty box will have me covered for a few months! And all that for free! If I were you, I’d start making a wishlist right now because stocks won’t last long!
So here is for the beauty haul. I have not done one in ages. Those who have been following me for a while know how minimal I am with makeup. So good thing that the beauty box has such a varied content. They also are products that I had never tried before for the biggest part and I was always curious about, so I think that again, it is the occasion! Go have a browse on their website, or have a look on their Instagram.
Did you know about Sally Beauty UK before? If yes, have you ever shopped in store or on their website? What did you think? I think it is pretty easy to reach £50 when it comes to beauty, so really, getting that beauty box is super worth it. Do you think it is a good bargain?
Thanks a lot for stopping by. I hope you liked this post.
See you soon,
