Boots Clearance Haul!

I think by now most you guys will have noticed that I love a good bargain , so ever since my friend told me about the Boots Clearance store based in Beckton I've been begging her to take me. Last night we finally made the trip  and I thought you guys may be interested in what I brought while I was there. What surprises me most about this place is that I've only ever seen this one post on it - I don't know if that's because its too out of the way for most people or that people are just unaware of it, but I think it's something everyone should have in their city because its amazing!
They seemed to have loads of these Coconut & hibiscus scrub's and since I love everything that it coconut I had to pick one up! At just £2 for a great 400ml of product I thought this was great, although I could only find it online on the US Boots website where it retailed at $9.99. Next up I found a couple of Soap and Glory bits in the form of Slimwear and Return to Slender Body Contouring Gel, I don't really buy in to these types of products but when you see S&G for just a pound each you make a run for the tills with no questions asked. Lastly for body products I found this Sanctuary Body Milk Spray for just £1 (spot a theme here yet?!) I hear a lot about this brand but have never really put there products to the test so I look forward to doing so. 
Again Umberto Giannini is one of those brands I've heard about but have never tried for myself so I couldn't resist picking up the Umberto Giannini overnight magic hair repair for just £1, I've only been using it a night but I love the idea behind it and the 'no rinse' remedy - Perfect for me as I prefer to wash my hair of an evening rather than waking up earlier in the morning. These Boots Expert heat protection intensive conditioner's were 2 for £1, I'm passing one on to my mum but look forward to trying it since my hair suffers so much heat damage!
This Loreal Perfect clean Foaming gel wash normally retails for around £5 so I was happy to see it for just £1 as I love the idea behind it - I got to try it out last night and really liked it. Down the same isle of random products I found the Witch Anit-blemish redness relief moisturiser, liquid concealer and tinted moisturiser all for £1.00 each - I love this line from Witch so was so happy to see it, although I really hope this doesn't mean Boots is stopping to stock it.
I'm a big fan of Neutrogena so was happy to see their Norwegian formula intense repair lip balm  for £1, The Vaseline was a bit of an impulse buy at the till but how could I turn down something limited edition that I wanted to try for just 50p?! I didnt find too much in the make up section since most if it involved bright shades of blue, purple and even green we did however find this No7 Eyeshadow in innocence for of course just a £1 and this lovely 17 Blush for just 75p. Saving the best till last I stumbled across this Japonesque Angled Foundation Brush for just £3.50, amazing considering it retails at £17.50 normally and I've been wanting to try an angled foundation brush for some time now. 


So there you have it, a little rumaging at £17.75 later there are all the amazing products I found at the Boots Clearence store. I'd reccomend stoping by if you're in the area - I found a link with all the details here

    1. I don't think there's that many, I'm actually not sure if this is the only one or not. The reduced items in my local store are always rubbish and still five times as much than at this store xx

  11. Hi all!

    Sorry to tell you, but I went to visit Boots Clearance at Beckton today and it's closed down! There's a sign outside advertising the unit to let. It was there a few months ago as I visited it with my mum. Such a shame, as I'd had some great bargains from there over the years.
