If you had £25 to spend in Boots, what would you buy?

I've managed to collect £25 worth of Boots points ( this is good for me, normally get to about a fiver then crack and buy nail polish or something ) so I'm wanting to treat myself then start collecting again with the Christmas shopping. So what should I get?!
I was thinking maybe something to help my skin get through winter, it's quite dry and prone to redness. Or some nice make up? Any wonder products I need in my life?

LaCoste touch of pink perfume is £20 instead of £38.

I would wait until December when they always have a soap and glory promotion - masses of yummy goodies in a mini suitcase for around £20. (usual price for all the stuff in the bag would be around £50) .

Ooh that's tempting Mrs W I was going to ask for some Daisy anyway!
And pink, yes maybe I might be best waiting til the Christmas stuff is out, an extra present to myself!

You don't get points on purchases with points.

I have about £60 in points, but I don't need anything at the moment. I would like a few perfumes but Boots don't do the ones I'm particularly interested in. I might wait until I need some skincare or something - I tried the Super by Nicolas Perricone range a while ago and it seemed pretty good.

Just got a card through the post giving me double advantage points all month ( for my birthday, apparently! ) so think I'll hang on a bit longer. I think the £50 spend/£12 points offer must be in store only, you have to spend £75 on line, which I don't really have today! sad

I cant see the Lacoste perfume for £20.00

Thanks fridge, I suspected as much

I'd get a new epilator (or the best part thereof) seeing as DP hasn't replaced my old one that he kindly fucked up 'improved' for me.

Or some new make-up (buy 1 get 1 half price on several brands at the moment, I noticed).

I'd use them for the Christmas pressies! Then treat myself with the cash saved instead

I just got the superfacialist rose facial oil and creamy cleanser for double cleansing, they are both really nice winter skincare. Think the oil was £14.99 and the cleanser £8.99. It's 3 for 2 as well!
