Boots No 7 Voucher - Mini Haul

This post is going to be 2 fold - firstly to tell you about the amazing offer that No 7 at Boots are currently running until the 7th October 2012 (quick sticks kiddy winks) and secondly to show you just how useful those pesky No 7 vouchers purse fillers can be (see mini haul)!


Boots are giving away No 7 vouchers 99.9% of the time (yes that is an exact statistic from my imagination) and until recent years 99.9% of the time, I'd bin them. I eventually realised I was being an idiot and that while the vouchers made their products cheap as chips I might as well check out what they had to offer and I'm glad I did as they really do have some fantastic products!


Last week I happened to glance at the most recent voucher I'd received and when I realised that I could use it in conjunction with the 3 for 2 offer that they're currently running I knew I was onto a winner and had to a) use to straight away and b) blog about it so I could let everyone else know! I pretty much felt like I was stealing from them with £5 off skincare, £3 off make up and third product I chose being free!? I'll let the receipt below do most of talking...


If I'd paid full price for the 3 items I bought (No 7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Water, No 7 Stay Precise Liquid Liner & No 7 Stay Perfect Nail Colour) this little haul would have cost me £21.50 instead of £8.50. That's less than half price! Things could not have been more bargainious. 



I have to admit this offer was particularly enticing as their Stay Precise Black Liquid Liner is my preferred choice anyway so I thought I might as well get another one while it was going cheap. I'm rather fussy when it comes to liquid liners. I can't get to grips with the pen ones and the liquid ones have to have a very thin brush. This ticks all the boxes for me - I like the brush and as a result it's easy to apply, it's a rich black colour & it stays put. Can't ask for much more really & I doubt I'll be straying from this any time soon given the price!


My second purchase (aka my freebie in the 3 for 2 part of the deal) was the No 7 Stay Perfect Nail Colour. I have a slight obsession with nail polish and was looking for something wintery to add to my collection now the colder months are well & truly upon us. Their nail polish range isn't the most exciting in the world. The colours are very safe and most annoyingly they're not named or numbered! However I settled on this gorgeous glittery plum colour which I'm going name Glittery Plum (for want of a more original name). I can't wait to try this out!



Last but not least I picked up the No 7 Beautiful Skin Cleansing Water. I had heard a few good things about this cleanser and was keen to try it and see if I could find something that was more readily available to counteract my addition to Bioderma! Alas, this has not been the case. Although this is undoubtedly a good cleanser which I'll definitely use up, Bioderma is a great one so unfortunately my views on this product were slightly biased from the get go! I won't say much more as I've planning on doing a post on cleansers in the near future! What I will say though is; go and get yourself a No 7 voucher and make the most of the amazing offer mentioned offer or any others they have on! It's such a great way to try out new products without parting with too many of your pennies! Who knows? You might find something you can't live without!

  8. Found this blog via Sprinkle of Glitter, and am already a fan after reading just one post :)

    I'm glad I stumbled across this particular post, as I have been debating for a while whether to purchase Bioderma or give this No7 one a bash. I think I might take your advice and purchase the No7 one with my voucher while I can. Will definately be trying out Bioderma in the near future too though.

    1. Thanks for stopping by & leaving such a lovely comment Nikki! Personally I prefer Bioderma but yes, definitely worth trying the No 7 one seeing as it's so cheap (when using the vouchers) & Bioderma aside, it's definitely still a great cleanser in its own right! xCx
