Best Beauty Savings: May

Best Beauty Savings May


Looking to treat yourself but don’t want to break the bank? Escentual is home to a huge range of luxury deals that you’ll want to get your hands on. My own shopping basket is overflowing, so I had to include some of my personal favourites in this month’s luxury for less line-up. From fragrance offers to brand-wide deals, keep reading to see the best beauty deals currently live on Escentual…


Best Brand-Wide Savings


If you want to update your entire skincare routine or stock up on your favourites, here are the brands with their complete line-up on offer…


Antipodes: 20% Off

Save on Antipodes Manuka Honey Mask

For a natural skincare treat, Antipodes’ skincare range is bursting with luxurious formulas that treat a range of skin concerns. Everyone I know who’s tried the New Zealand-based brand has instantly fallen in love with them, just like I have.

I’ll admit that I’ve tried a lot of Antipodes skincare, but my favourite has to be Manuka Honey Mask, which effectively targets blemishes without drying out the skin.


Avene: 20% Off

 Beauty Savings Avene Tolerance Control Recovery Balm

A firm-favourite here at Escentual, French skincare brand, Avene, can help you with any skin care concern. Concerned with ageing? Use the Physolift range. Struggling with dry, sensitive or allergy-prone skin? Avene Tolerance is for you! My personal favourite? The Avene Tolerance Control Recovery Balm; it’s my go-to when I want to soothe the eczema itch that flares up on my chest.


Klorane: 20% Off

Klorane Cupuacu Repairing Shampoo for Very Dry Hair

If you want to give your tresses some TLC for less, consider Klorane your new best friend. And with 20% off, this is the perfect time to try out a new range.

But it gets even better if you have dry or curly hair: the new-for-2022 Cupuacu collection for very dry hair currently has a whopping ⅓ off! I know a few Team Escentual members who will be making the most of this deal…

My personal favourite Klorane range to stock up on, however, is the Mint Detox collection, which is perfect if you live in the city and are exposed to polluted air; I always make sure that I have a back-up of the quick-fix Aquatic Mint Dry Shampoo to soothe my greasy, flat locks. The ultra-cooling range tingles your scalp – you can feel it getting to work detoxing any build up!


Star Free Gifts


Is there anything better than getting more than what you’ve paid for? Here are my standout free gifts with purchase available now…

Clarins Father’s Day Gift – The Clarins Men’s range is a firm-favourite here at Escentual HQ, but it also makes the perfect caring gift for any man in your life. When you buy any two Clarins Men’s products, you get the Father’s Day Gift for free; it contains 6 best-selling minis that make up an entire routine!

L’Occitane Refill Forever Bottle – This chic bottle is the perfect way to add style and sustainability to your bathroom. With any purchase from the L’Occitane refill range, you get the silver refill bottle for free.

L’Occitane’s wide range of shower gels caters for everyone, but mine and Keavy’s all-time favourite is the Cherry Blossom version. If you’ve seen our Bath and Shower Essentials, you’ll know how much our Merchandiser, Eleni, loves the L’Occitane refill range!

Prada Luna Rossa Toiletry Bag – Whilst stocks last, not only do you get one of the striking Luna Rossa scents, but you also get the free Luna Rossa Toiletry Bag that comes with any purchase of a 50ml or larger Luna Rossa.

My favourite is Luna Rossa Carbon, which is an addictive, masculine floral-amber scent. When my partner wears it, I swoon!

Every month, we curate a themed box of eight mystery scents to help you discover new fragrances through our #EscentualScents Perfume Blind Trial. Going in blind allows you to form an honest first impression of a scent, without knowing the brand. At just £19.95, not only is the experience fun and educational, but the cost of the box is redeemable as Pretty Pennies worth £19.95. This can be spent on anything on-site, including the fragrances featured in the box. You won’t want to miss the June box, where eight vetiver scents are featured.
