Best place to buy beauty products

I regularly buy Clarins and Liz Earle products, but I'm not sure that I'm getting them for the best price.
Sometimes I buy in Boots ( Advantage points) and sometimes direct from the company websites ( free samples).
But is there a cheaper way to stock up?
Any good websites with better prices and which are easy to use?

John Lewis price match (doesn't include online stores though) so they always have the lowest high street price.

I buy beauty products from Boots generally and from Primark at times. I find Primark to be a bit cheaper than other places.

Since when did Primark sell Clarins and Liz Earle?grin

Boots because I have an advantage card but I find they can be quite overpriced, Superdrug are usually cheaper (but not always) however they don't do all the brands I like

Otherwise I like to shop from Amazon too because it's easy to get free delivery, and great for skincare products from other countries

Feelunique are pretty good. And Beauty Bay. Worth a look.

Another one for QVC here for Liz Earle - also, the LE website does give some freebies depending on how much you spend.

I also find M&S pretty good for some other high end brands, especially if you can get 20% off with your Sparks card (I use for L'Occitane, Neals Yard and REN)

I luckily get student or staff discount at most stores/brands as I work at Westfield

I love HOF as they offer student discount on beauty & have a good reward card and order in store programme. So if something is out of stock in store I can order it until midnight, and receive it next day like I bought it in person - useful as HOF don’t necessarily stock every beauty brand in store (like MAC). Easiest for me as they offer student discount all year around rather than on occasion like Debenhams/John Lewis. Can you get a unidays code off someone?

SpaceNK often has promotions like £10 off a £45 spend. HOF also has the same £10 off offer from time to time

Cult Beauty online has a 15% discount for new members?

Also Feelunique/look fantastic always have promotions on too. The only issue is that the best brands they stock are typically excluded from promotions.

With Feelunique you can become a Platinum member and get a 10/15% discount (can’t remember) from your favourite brand for life. I use mine on Tigi hair care as they’re excluded from promotions smile
