Beauty Bargains: thisworks, Fekkai & Essie


I always get quite nervous walking into TK Maxx (TJ Maxx if you're American!) purely because I'm unaware how much it's going to affect my bank balance. Their beauty and hair section has been on top form lately, a few months ago I couldn't believe my luck when I discovered 3 Essie polishes for £10 so I had high hopes when I made a trip more recently. 



I stumbled across a whole section of Frederick Fekkai hair products and before I knew it the Glossing Cream had made its way into my basket. I've heard great things about it, mainly from Ameila and Fleur, and for less than half the original rrp, it was a complete bargain at £9.99. I've found it works best applied to the ends of damp hair and once blow dried it leaves your locks feeling soft, smooth and sleek (I realise it's packed with silicones galore, but that still didn't stop me!). The purchase I was most chuffed with, was the This Works: Perfect Skin set as I've wanted to try something from their line for a while now. Inside is the Perfect Hands hand cream, Tired Eyes Serum and Perfect Cleavage (a tightening and toning serum for the chest and neck, something I feel I don't need as of yet but as I turn 22 tomorrow, it might not be too much longer before this is put to use!) Reduced from £22, to £12, it immediately joined the Glossing Cream in my basket without a second thought! I'm in need of a new eye product as I'm almost out of my Origins Ginzing and so the other two products were bonuses! Last but not least, I headed over to see what other Essie goodies they had to offer and as well as the polishes, there were many other nail treatments. I picked up the Smooth Trick Deep-Conditioning Cuticle Oil - it has a little rubber point which fills with product when the tube is squeezed, really quick and easy to use! At only £3.99 I was also extremely tempted to pick up a strengthening nail treatment for the same price but a sense of self-control took over!

It's safe to say I left the store that day with a huge Cheshire cat grin spread across my face and I certainly felt quite pleased with myself - it's the little things, eh?!

Have you picked up any bargains recently?
