How am I such a habitual internet shopper and yet the whole “Black Friday” thing totally escaped my notice? Some of the deals are quite incredible! For a start, Omorovicza have up to 30% off everything. EVERYTHING! Until Sunday! If ever you wanted to try something from this ridiculously luxurious brand then now is the moment – the Deep Cleansing Mask, usually £57, is £39.90 (here) and the Queen of Hungary Mist (one of my top all-time beauty products) is £36.80 (here).
Most significant, however, is the discount on my new “Holy Grail” product, the Elemental Emulsion. It’s sod’s law that I was aiming to write an in-depth post on this pre-Christmas but hadn’t yet managed to get around to it; for now, a quick precis will have to do. I have been using this ultra-light moisturising fluid almost every day for around six weeks, now, and I’m finding that I reach for it automatically without even considering my other options! The Elemental Emulsion is a very, very light hydrator – it feels barely any richer than applying a watery serum – but it really does the trick when it comes to hydrating central-heating-battered skin. For people who are worried about moisturisers being too rich for them, this is perfect; for people needing an extra moisture “boost” pre-face-cream, this is also perfect. I find that it is effective enough alone, but those with drier skin may like to add a cream afterwards. As an in-betweeny kind of product, it is just absolutely spot-on, for me – I use it before a BB or CC cream, before tinted moisturiser, after a serum at night, whenever. I don’t worry about it being too rich or oily, no chance of greasy skin breakouts here!
I had been holding off with the review because I do find myself cringing a little inside when a product is very expensive; it makes writing about something much more difficult if you know that the last line is going to read, “and this costs…..five thousand pounds!”. But with 30% off? Brings this down to a not-too-bad £63 (here). And I say not too bad, because it really isn’t: you need so little of this fluid to cover your entire face that I reckon you use around 50% less than a normal face cream, (watch my brilliant justification process at work here), which means that really it’s just over thirty quid! Almost a bargain. Hohohohoho. You can find Omorovicza online here: Omorovicza.co.uk
Other deals of note:
GAP have a whopping 30% off everything – kids, mens, coats, everything. I’m stocking up on colourful socks and scarves for nieces and nephews! You need to use the code SHOPGAP here.
John Lewis have some really good offers on electricals, including big things like dishwashers and washing machines. (I am SO glad that I bought both a dishwasher and a washing machine from John Lewis three weeks ago and that they are now both reduced. Note sarcasm.) JohnLewis.com
