2022 is flying by, and I cannot believe it is already September, almost October! But, September is a very exciting time in the beauty industry: big brand launches hit the shelves, and so do the *Christmas* gift sets. Gift Sets not only contain expertly chosen routines prewrapped for your loved ones, but they are great value for money if you’re looking for a self-care treat, allowing you to enjoy your favourites for less with some added extras. There are also some incredible free gifts to make your Escentual delivery extra exciting. Read on to discover my favourite best beauty savings…
Skincare Deals and Free Gifts
With the cold weather approaching, our skin goes through a lot. Check out the skincare sets that will rejuvenate your routine…
I think everyone at Escentual has at least one holy grail Dermalogica product (mine is the Dermalogica Precleanse), so you know it’s going to be an exciting gift for any skincare fan. This month there are two free gifts on offer: the Brighten Dull Skin Set with the Glycolic Cleanser and Age Smart Serum when you spend £80 and The Ultimate Cleansing Brush free when you spend £100 on Dermalogica (excluding gift set purchases).
Clarins is bursting with iconic best-sellers from their reformulated Lip Oils to the Hand & Nail Treatment Cream – both of which come as an incredible free gift with every purchase of two Clarins products (one must be skincare or foundation).
Bodycare Deals and Free Gifts
The Prodigieux range is iconic, known particularly for the multi-purpose Dry Oil. For just £20, the Nuxe Prodigieux Travel Pouch Gift Set is an ideal way to trial the luxurious body range or to stock up on your favourites in travel-friendly sizes. The body products can be used all year round, soothing dry skin in the winter and adding a healthy glow for the summer!
L’Occitane is the place to look for those who love skincare with luxurious scents and sensory textures. Transform your own shower experience or give the gift of a luxurious routine with the L’Occitane Pour Homme Shower Gel Duo – anyone can indulge in L’Occitane! L’Occitane knows how to make a gorgeous gift set, and I love that they cater for everyone with eco-friendly packaging as the icing on the cake.
Makeup Deals and Free Gifts
Yves Saint Laurent
Everything from YSL feels like a luxurious gift, but the Couture Must-Haves Set contains some YSL essentials! From the volume effect mascara to the lavender-jasmine Libre Eau de Parfum mini, the gift set is the perfect way to dip your toes into the world of YSL.
There are so many adorable Benefit gifts this year tailored around the theme of sending love postcards. Not only is every gift set housed in beautiful designs, but they also offer brilliant savings to try new products or replenish your Benefit staples. If you’re looking to try the classics, the Benefit Totally Glam Telegram Gift Set has a Hoola bronzer, They’re Real Mascara, Gimme Brow Gel and a Porefessional Primer; all the essentials!
We want to remove any worry that comes with trialling a new brand or routine, so we have introduced our Escentual Promise to allow you to shop risk-free. Collagen brands, Vida Glow and Proto-col have selected products with a money-back guarantee.
Haircare brand Aveda has also joined our Escentual Promise so that you can upgrade to this sustainable hair care brand without the risk of disappointment.
Every month, we curate a themed box of eight mystery scents to help you discover new fragrances through our #EscentualScents Perfume Blind Trial. Keeping the brand and scent a secret encourages you to trust your nose, and you may just be surprised with the outcome! 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 this autumnal inspired box: eight spicy scents are featured.
On top of the free gifts and offers currently available, Escentual also has a rewards scheme to save you money on future orders. You receive two Pretty Pennies for every pound that you spend. Pretty Pennies are redeemable on future orders – the more you spend, the more you save, as each Pretty Penny is worth 1p.
