It’s that time of the week when you can bag a bargain

(The Independent)

Whether you need to stock up on your favourite make-up and skincare or are looking to discover something new, the Boots £10 Tuesday is the time to do it.

Each week, the retailer slashes the price of its big-name brand products to just £10, which is often a huge saving on the usual RRP.

In previous weeks, we’ve seen a Mac prep and prime lip pencil reduced, as well as a skincare expert Caroline Hirons’s “holy grail” product, Pixi glow tonic.

As this is a flash sale, it lasts for 24 hours only and owing to its popularity, things do sell out fast, so you’ll have to act quickly. It’s a run, don’t walk situation.

Even if your beauty bounty is well stocked, it offers the perfect opportunity to pick up a present for a friend at a discounted price; who doesn’t love saving money?

To help you decide which products you need, we’ve rounded-up of the ones we think are well worth splashing the cash on. You can thank us later.

You can trust our independent round-ups. We may earn commission from some of the retailers, but we never allow this to influence selections. This revenue helps us to fund journalism across The Independent.

No7 match made custom blend foundation drops

If you’re looking for an alternative to foundation, this could be the answer you were looking for. Simply mix these concentrated foundation drops with your favourite moisturiser (if you’re looking for inspiration, this Kate Somerville delikate recovery cream, which took the top spot in our guide to the best moisturisers for sensitive skin) or primer (our favourite in the review of the best is the Sisley Paris instant eclat glow primer) and apply to your face. The brand suggests using one drop for light coverage, two for medium or three for full. A great option for nailing the skinminimalism beauty trend.

Oral-B 3D white refill heads

Admittedly one of the least fun things to spend money on, so it’s always good to see oral hygiene products in the Boots flash sale. If you already have an Oral B toothbrush (if you don’t, read our review of the best electric toothbrushes and no doubt you’ll be persuaded) these are for you, since dentists recommend replacing your toothbrush head every three to four months. Inspired by professional dental tools, these are designed to clean tooth-by-tooth and, according to the brand, the bristles will help remove plaque build-up.

No7 instant illusions airbrush away primer, 30ml

There is little point in spending ages perfecting your make-up if it doesn’t last, nor should you build a great skincare regime if your face is left dry and parched after an hour of wearing foundation. Luckily, this No7 primer may just save you here. Working to reduce the appearance of fine lines and pores, the brand claims it’ll leave your skin perfectly smooth all day. For optimum results, apply to skin after you’ve moisturised.
