• Beauty Bargains and Hidden Gems with Chemist 4 U

    I was really lucky to be asked to take on the challenge of finding some beauty bargains and hidden gems on the Chemist 4 U website.

    Prior to them contacting me I had seen the brand before when looking for online stockists of makeup with a limited budget but hadn’t purchased there before.

    I had £30 to spend so wanted to maximise the items I could buy.

    What did I buy?

    I purchased the following:

    Amazingly this all came to under £30 with postage!

    For me, it’s always great to try new things and to find them at brilliantly low prices was good too.

    Initial Thoughts

    I tried all the products and the lipsticks and the palette were my least favourite. I was pleased I hadn’t bought them at full price as they were not really for me.

    The Revlon palette had no pigment in any of the eyeshadows and the lipsticks were not protected so the powder mixed in with them. It’s a shame as it looks gorgeous.

    A couple of the lipsticks broke almost immediately, I couldn’t turn one of them up and another one snapped off. They also had a distinct kids makeup plastic scent which was a little off putting.

    I wasn’t mad on the colours too but that is what you get with a lucky dip.

    The O.P.I nail polish was outstanding. Such a gorgeous colour which isn’t done justice by the picture on the website. I actually researched the swatches prior to purchasing this.

    The By Invitation body cream was a standout. I have the perfume (it’s nearly finished) and I love the scent so to come across this beauty was fab. I can continue to using the scent without having to purchase a whole new bottle. The texture was lovely and light and sunk in to the skin really well. Definitely a great purchase.

    The other items were items I always buy anyway so it was great to see them at a good price.

    Have you shopped on line for budget beauty? Have you tried online chemists before?

    Let me know what you think?

      I have never even heard of this site before but it seems like there could be some bargains to be had. What a shame about the palette and lipsticks though, you would think with the lipsticks being CK they would be of a bit better quality x

      It definitely looks like you got your money’s worth and your choices were great ones. I always love hidden treasures.

      It is awesome you found yourself some hidden gems, I have to admit I wouldn’t have thought of looking at somewhere like Chemist 4 U for beauty bargains, perhaps I need to give it a try.

      The opi nail polish sounds like it is worth a whirl – I love it when you find an amazing product at a reasonable price. May have to have a look on Chemist 4 U x

      I don’t think I’ve ever bought from a site like this, what you got sounds too good to be true. I’m glad that you got a few standout items x

      Looks like a great site if you know what you want to buy

      I have tried online chemists before and I do agree with you that they can be a bit hit and miss which is a shame . My favourite budget brand is NYX as they are cruelty free and their lipsticks are fab!

      For £30 I think you did fantastically – seems like the website has some really good deals!
