There are hundreds of excellent premium hair and beauty products websites available – most offering speedy service whatever your favourite shampoo and conditioner, cosmetics or cleanser. Frequently you can also get free UK delivery which makes these websites even more attractive, if you know exactly what you want, rather than schlepping out to the store. Gorgeous Shop and Salon Skincare are two websites well worth checking out.
What is not so easy to find, unless those well known stores are running specific promotions, are websites that offer premium – ie famous modern and traditional brands – at discounted prices. Here are two places where you can find a wide range of discounts and gifts with purchase – not on every product offered, but certainly on a wide selection.
Gorgeous Shop offers beauty, hair care and male grooming from a large selection of brands including Clarins, GHD, Kerastase, Redken, Decleor, and Becca, plus nail care by OPI, Essie and Seche and much much more. There’s loads of information about each and every brand and product, plus delivery options which range from free (6 day) UK delivery to next day and international delivery.
This is a very black based website which from a viewing point of view I don’t like so much, but I have to say that the range of products, not to mention the discounts, and the extremely quick checkout process will make this a site well worth shopping from.
Click straight through to the Outlet area at Gorgeous Shop to see what’s there, for some brands it’s pretty well the full product range, and for others selective products, with different discounts for each. Also check out Gifts with Purchase – there are a lot of those as well.
Salon Skincare is a well designed website offer another huge range so take your time. You’re unlikely to find every product from every brand carried, which includes MD Formulations, Gatineau, Philip Kingsley, Clarins, Elemis, Rodial and Caudalie, but you will find seriously good discounts on most products, quick delivery and lots of information.
Frankly who doesn’t love to find their favourite products for less, and with free delivery. My advice is the next time you’re shopping for hair care, skincare or grooming products you should have a good browse round here. The discounts are well worth having, the free delivery offer (UK) irresistible and did I mention gift wrapping? You’ll find that as well at Salon Skincare.
Both of these websites are very good for gifts and premium beauty brand sets, and slipping in a treat for yourself. Needless to say both are tried and tested and I’ll be using them again soon.
As always with discounts check the RRP on one of the main beauty websites (I always do this), and then see who is selling the specific product you’re after for less on one of these two great websites. What more could you want?
Back to Paris…..Yesterday I visited the Alaia Exhibition at the Musee de Costume in Paris and couldn’t resist trying on a dress in the store. More about that tomorrow………
