Sneak Peek: The Boxing Day Beauty Sales

Mon, 24 December 2012 3:45PM

It’s all about Christmas now, of course. But, what can I say, I’m always looking for the next big thing. So I already have my Boxing Day plans sorted.

For me, Boxing Day is when you end up with a box full of your favourite beauty products, thanks to the chaotic sales that occur nationwide.

I’m sure I’m not alone. Who doesn’t love stocking up on old faves at a fraction of the price?

Without further ado, here’s my list of the best beauty bargains to race for this Wednesday …

Who: The Balm

Where: Selected David Jones stores


  • 30% off all Christmas packs and limited-edition palettes (including Balm Jovi)
  • Buy two products and get 50% off the second product (as long as it’s of equal or of lesser value)
  • ‘Bright and Pretty’ and ‘Bold and Bronzed’ kits will be down to $34.95 – that’s is a 62% saving!


Who: Essie Nail polish

Where: Myer

What: 35% off the entire range (wowzers, Primpers!)


Who: Napoleon Perdis Cosmetics

Where: Napoleon Perdis Concept Stores, click here for a store locator


  • Up to 70% off a selected range of products
  • The new Beauty Stamps in Love and Fame (heart- and star-shaped beauty spots for your face: cute!) will be discounted from $29 to only $15!


Who: ghd

Where: At approved ghd salons and at ghd

What: Up to $50 off selected styling tools until stocks last …

  • ghd air, $149 (save $50)
  • ghd IV Styler, $199 (save $40)
  • ghd Gold Series stylers, $239 (save $30)

When: From the December 26 – January 25


Who: Molton Brown

Where: David Jones

What: There are 10 Molton Brown gift packs on sale, all at only $55, which is a saving of up to $30. My pick of the bunch is the Coco de Mer Duo (a shower gel and body lotion enriched with coconut, honey and tonka bean).


Who: Bobbi Brown

Where: Selected David Jones and Myer stores

What: Bobbi Brown’s Deluxe Skincare will be available at great-value prices:

  • Soothing Cleansing Oil: 400ml for $90 (normally 200ml for $60)
  • Eye Makeup Remover: 200ml for $68 (normally 100ml for $44)
  • Hydrating Face Cream: 100ml for $122 (normally 50ml for $82)



Can’t get into town? Lucky then that some great skincare and makeup specials are but a click or two away.

Our faves?

At David Jones, save 25% on a lovely selection of Mor, Grown and Burt’s Bees, and 20% on the entire range of Dermalogica. Nice one, DJs.

Over at Myer, now’s the time to stock up on Revlon makeup – there’s up to 30% off some gorgeous buys, such as our beloved Lip Butters and PhotoReady Perfecting Primer.

    Myer had specials on quite a few beauty brands, was surprised! Some Benefit packs were reduced, Estée Lauder gift packs were reduced…some bargains to be had if you’re brave enough to go to the shops! :)
