My mum was visiting me last week from Scotland and she wanted to pick up a few Christmas presents so I took her to Cheshire Oaks. This is an outlet village with some great discount shops. They have some really good brands there now with outlet shops. Such as Mulberry, All Saints, L’Occitaine, Ugg, Molton Brown, Burberry, Next, Micheal Kors, Fossel and Vans to name but a few.
My favourite place to shop whilst I am there is most definitely The Cosmetics Company Outlet – I think there are 5 of these stores in England. They sell Smashbox, Mac, Bobbi Brown, Ojon, Origins, Estee Lauder and a few other brands. There are some great bargains to be had. I went with skincare in mind as I really don’t need any makeup right now. I am on a real skincare kick and I wanted to pick up a few things to help brighten my dull dull skin.
So here is what I picked up,
I bought 2 Christmas Gift Boxes from Origins One and one from Ojon. The Melvita set was from L’Occitane. So in the Origins boxes there was,
This Mask Duo set from Origins have the Clear Improvement Mask and the Drink Up Intensive Mask at the CCO these were £17.25 for the set. I am really looking forward to trying these masks. Next I bought the Nature’s Difference Box set,
In the Nature’s Difference you get Rejuvenating Cleansing Milk, Skin Rejuvenating Treatment Lotion, Skin Rejuvenating Serum, Skin Rejuvenating Treatment. This was £29.25. I am really excited to use the Treatment Lotion.
The Ojon Gift Set was £11 and has 3 miniature sized products,
They had a few different sets I went for the Dry Recovery Set and in there you get a Dry Recovery Hydrating Shampoo, Hydrating Conditioner and a Restorative Hair Treatment. I have wanted to try some more products from Ojon ever since getting their Hair Oil in the Harrods Glossybox. Why are products so much more desirable in miniature size?
The Melvita set as I said was from the L’Occitane shop and all the Melvita products were half price.
Melvita is an Organic Skincare brand and I wish I’d picked up a couple of their oils (maybe next time). In this Bio Excellence Radiant Skin Set you get – Miceller Toner, Facial Scrub and a Day Cream. This set was £6 so it’s a great way to try a few products from a brand I don’t know too much about.
Have you tried any of the products I picked up? Have you been to The Cosmetics Company Outlet before? Is there any near where you live?
