The Boots 70% off sale is finally here

It’s finally that time of the year again: Boots has put on its annual 70 percent off sale and we’re so ready to stock up on our favourite beauty goods.

Each year, the popular drugstore launches a huge sale which usually takes place on the fourth Friday after Christmas. But despite this year’s instalment being slightly delayed it is finally taking place today on 1 February.

The exciting sale was first launched by the retailer four years ago and was designed to banish the January blues we all struggle with this time of year.

It is often made up of leftover Christmas stock such as beauty gift sets rather than on everyday needs like toiletries and other essentials. Throughout January, there has been a 50 percent sale on most of the festive gift sets but if you’ve had your eye on any of them, you might want to wait until Friday in case prices are reduced even further.

These include the Ted Baker Pause for a Pamper Gift Set which is currently priced at £25 but could become £12.07 with 70 per cent off, Soap & Glory Scent-Sational Bunch Gift Set which is currently £20 but could be £12.90 and Yankee Candle Mother’s Day Gift Set which is now £24.50 but could be £15 with 70 per cent off.

You can also expect sales on Estee Lauder and Giorgio Armani products, as well as make-up from brands such as Clinique, No7 and Smashbox. Other products on offer include Winky Lux Royal Collection (now £13.50, from £45), My Mood Phone Case and Lip Balm (from £20), Skinnydip Shells Hand Wash Cream (from £12.50),  Jack Wills Men’s Mug and Socks Giftset (from £12.50), F2 Freestylers Head Stall (from £14) and Fat Face Kids Backpack (from £20).

These aren’t guaranteed price reductions, but based on the way the annual sale usually works, hopefully it’ll be a pretty accurate estimation. What we do know, however, is that the products above are some of the best bargains on offer today.

Shop everything from beauty and bath products, to perfumes as well as other goods – but beware, the annual Boots 70 per cent sale is only available in stores, so you’ll actually have to make the trip to your local store instead of ordering online.
