After weeks of adjusting to lockdown life, we’re slowly getting used to our new normal, including how we shop for groceries. Whether that’s planning ahead and ordering your weekly shop online (if you can get hold of an elusive delivery slot that’s not three months away, that is) or learning to queue two metres apart outside the supermarket and then abiding by the one-way system once inside, we’re starting to think we’ve got this lockdown thing, well, on lock.
But one thing we’re starting to notice is our depleting beauty kit – not being able to whizz to Boots on our lunch break or peruse the shelves of Space NK has left our make-up bag and bathroom cabinets looking a little bare. As we come to the end of our favourite products, we’re left wondering how best to stock up on our beauty essentials – and perhaps even treat ourselves to the odd little luxury or two.
While waltzing around department store beauty halls, spritzing and experimenting with everything we can get our hands on, might seem a while a way (and truth be told, it may well be), there’s a little known secret that we feel it’s time to shout about.
Sainsbury’s stocks major beauty brands, from Korres to Weleda, so you can actually top up your beauty kit while you’re getting the weekly shop. No need to put in extra orders from multiple online retailers, get it all done in one go, whether ordering for delivery or visiting the store in person.
Back in September last year, the supermarket giant had a huge expansion of their beauty offering, adding a whopping 1,400 new beauty products to their existing offering and creating bigger beauty areas within stores. The new offering included brands such as Korres, Balance Me, Bondi Sands, Nip + Fab and Weleda, with Sanctuary Spa having already been added to the collection earlier in the year.
Whether it’s your make-up, skincare, haircare or nail polish supplies that need replenishing, you can simply add everything you need to your trolley (virtual or real) during your next big shop. Some make up-products are not currently available online so the retailer can focus on essential grocery items, but there’s still plenty of choice.
Here’s a breakdown of the best beauty products you can find at Sainsbury’s, in stores and online.
