Soap and Glory For Less


Whilst out for a walk in the gorgeous sunshine we had been having the other day I popped into my local department store; Morleys. I am unaware if and where Morleys have other branches, so I'm not sure if any of you will be able to get hold of any of these items.

I didn't intentionally go in to look at beauty products, as Morley's is more of a home store. But whilst wondering round I saw a "bargin bin" filled with reduced beauty products and to my delight, the majority of the items were from Soap and Glory.

I picked up four items...


Catch a Wrinkle Day Moisturiser, Boots RRP: £11

How to Use:
All skin-type suitable, (but perhaps not oily enough for extremely dry skin types).
Use Soap & Glory Catch a Wrinkle in Time Age Avoiding Day Moisturiser . Just massage a light layer over a well-cleansed face and neck, let it soak in before you put your make up on, and hopefully you will. (Catch one. Or more. Ideally, you’ll catch them all.)

Eyes, Lips, Face

A couple of weeks ago ELF or had their "last ever" 50% off everything weekend sale, the offer had been tempting me the 2 or three previous weekends that they had run the offer, but the phrase "last ever" did it for me and I hopped along to the website and started chucking things into my online shopping basket.
I set myself a limit of £20 once the discount had been taken off, so I was getting £40 worth of products. So, here's what I got...
