The term self-care can be interpreted in plenty of different and equally valid ways, but one of the most common and enjoyable is taking time for ourselves and indulging in a little beauty therapy. And no high street store knows this better than Boots – particularly if its latest launch is anything to go by.
The new self-care skincare and make-up bundle for her, which is currently available on the Boots website, is stuffed with staple products that most of us keep stashed away for days when we’ve got time for a bit of extra pampering – think sheet masks, replenishing moisturisers, nail polish and even make-up pick-me-ups like lipstick and mascara.
But here’s the brilliant part – if you bought each item in the pack individually, you’d spend upwards of £60, but Boots is offering you the change to get your hands on the whole lot for just £35.
Highlights include an array of Garnier products, from micellar water to hand cream to one of its bestselling Moisture Bomb sheet masks (pro tip: pop yours in the fridge as a refreshing treat in these ever-soaring temperatures).
There’s also mascara from Maybelline, nail polish from Essie and hair oil and eyeliner from L’Oreal, the perfect finishing touches for your routine.
However, while we’re all for self-gifting, Boots doesn’t just suggest investing in the self-care packaging for yourself: ‘Who deserves some kindness in your life?’ the brand asks on the listing.
‘We know how important self-care is, and now more than ever, we want to help you to look after yourself and those around you. Get a bundle of best-selling self-care products delivered straight to the door of someone who has been there for you.’
Considering the saving is almost half the RRP, we’ll definitely be tapping into the one for us, one for them mentality. And relaaax…
