Everyone loves a good bargain. There’s no feeling quite like punching the numbers and figuring out how much money you’ve saved with a purchase. This feeling is best experienced through places such as TJ Max or Nordstrom Rack -mostly because then you’re getting the highest quality of products at a cheaper price point. I personally live for raiding the beauty racks of TJ Max -there’s just something about the promise of discovering a stowed away sephora classic or even discovering new products from brands you’d never usually shed out the money for. I’ve had my fair share of successful hauls and good TJ max days -but yesterday afternoon superceded any of them. Not only did I find products I’ve always wanted to invest in, but the sheer fact that I bought all of these for less than the price of one of them is enough to impress me.
Let’s start with the most impressive and go down in descending price. When I saw the Estee Lauder Clear Difference Advanced Blemish Serum my jaw dropped, and when I saw the clearance tag on it my jaw practically fell off. I bought the serum for an insane $32 in comparison to the original price of $82. I. Know. This serum sounds like everything I need right now, I’ve been suffering from a surprising number of breakouts recently and keep wanting to try new products but I know that only further irritates. So all I needed was a good reliable brand’s serum that I could rely on rather than experimenting with a bunch of cheaper stuff, but I’m trying to save money on beauty lately so I was stuck. This find was god sent and I can’t even begin to accept how cheap I got it for, I have a really good feeling about this one (keep an eye out for it in a future favourites post!)
At this point I must have began to drool, I actually physically hesitated and took a step back when I spotted this product -there’s no way I’m this lucky right now, I had accepted a years worth of luck with the Estee lauder find. I’d heard about this product repeatedly from my favourite skincare guru Caroline Hirons- that for me is enough to trust a product. Cane + Austin’s Retexture Pads were almost glowing to me, I could not believe it. These pads promise to fix your skin’s texture, reduce fine lines and enlarged pores as well as correct dark spots. I’m always in the market for a new chemical exfoliating pad but this one has always been the holy grail- and I finally got my hands on it for half the price! Bought for $29.99 in comparison to the original price of $60! Beyond excited for this one!
Again, a surprising sephora find. I always peruse the hair section with the rare chance of finding a Caviar product -so the surprise when I finally did was insane! The hair products I usually lean towards are serums or masks, I guess it’s because I prefer something that’s going to give me instant results rather than a shampoo/conditioner combo that’ll help more overtime. So I found the Caviar Micro-Bead Fill & Fix Treatment Masque, I don’t actually know much about this product but a Caviar mask for $9.99 in comparison to the original $42 sounded pretty impressive to me. I’ve heard amazing things about caviar so I’m excited to try it!
These next two products are repurchases of things I’ve bought and loved before -but if cheaper than why not! First is Taylor Swift’s Wonderstuck perfume in a smaller bottle. Now, this is actually also exciting because I’ve always struggled to track this perfume down, and my Taylor Swift obsession led me to constantly be searching for it. But after recieving it for a birthday gift last year I was happy enough, but finding the smaller version was exciting enough as it is -let alone the fact that it was only $9.99 in comparison to the original $30. I was over the moon about finally finding it and the cheap price point was perfect.
Finally, The Body Shop’s Wild Argan Oil Bubbling Bath soap is not only one of my favourite Body Shop scents but it also gives the most bubbles a bubble bath product has ever given me! So I was excited to find this product for half the price, and with my eagerly anticipated move to an apartment with a bathtub soon- I can finally completely delve myself back into regular baths so this couldnt have come at a better time!
Let me know what your favourite TJ Max or TK max experiences have been – I love reading about a good bargain!
