I’m sure a lot of you are familiar with Feel Unique, Look Fantastic and Beauty Bay for discounted beauty products, but one online retailer you might not have heard of is AllBeauty.com
Not quite as glossy looking as the others, I’d describe it as an online TK Maxx – i.e. no frills and you have to search patiently for what you want.
All the big brands are represented and categories include:
- Sun & Tan
- Bath & Body
- Gifts & Sets
I wouldn’t take too much notice of the RRP (recommended retail price) figures which are never reliable on any website. Instead, research the other online shops and compare the actual selling prices.
The luxury brands in particular, seem to have very generous discounts. i.e. Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask, £69.95 instead of £95.50 (although that price is still out of my league).
Not everything is heavily discounted, Tom Ford lipsticks – which I have always wanted to try, are a mere £3.00 cheaper than elsewhere, but if you do your research, there are some very good bargains.
I’m particularly pleased with the huge £15.00 saving I made on Elizabeth Arden Superstart Skin Renewal Booster (review here). I paid £30.00 instead of £45.00 and I still can’t find it cheaper than that anywhere else on the net.
There’s also free Royal Mail 48 hour Tracked Delivery on orders over £15.00.
I’ve left the big and important question for last – Is it old, tatty stock?
I’m happy to say that no, not at all. I received my second (oops!) order today, and I can assure you that all the packaging and products are brand new. Everything came properly and securely packed as well.
UPDATE 7th February 2016
All Beauty used to be called Cheap Smells – I actually remember buying from them! Can’t think why they changed their name though…
