I often extol the virtues of TK Maxx. I bought my favourite Michael Kors leather jacket from there. I wrote a guide to shopping there. And just yesterday, I showed off my latest bargain buy. I love the place, and could (and often do) spend hours rifling through the rails.
Although I’m usually drawn to the clothing, I’ve recently discovered that TK Maxx does a blinding line in beauty products. I’ve mentioned before that I’m a terrible product snob, but unfortunately I don’t have the bank balance to back it up. So to find high end products at hugely reduced prices makes me squeal with actual glee.
After spending 15 minutes crouched down on the floor, rooting right at the back of a display shelf full of skincare, I emerged triumphant with this beauty. Elizabeth Arden released this special edition Eight Hour Cream to celebrate 100 years of the brand – I had my eye on it when it first came out because I’m a sucker for cute packaging, but at £22 it was a little pricey. In TK Maxx? Just £12.99.
After reading Caroline’s brilliant post on eye cream, I decided to invest in a good one. I’m always trying to nose out a bargain and this Laidbare cream was £4.99 with an RRP of £15. I also love the quirky name. Seriously – I’m a marketer’s dream.
I just cannot resist the lure of a luxury candle. TK Maxx cleverly place them alongside the queue for the tills, so of course I have to sniff them all while and waiting. And of course I have to buy one. Well, wouldn’t you if they were £7.99 from £27.99 and smelt like a dream? I know Lucy would.
Have you ever bought beauty products from TK Maxx? What’s been your best bargain?
