I don't know about you, but I can spend hours in the beauty hall of a department store, going from counter to counter, testing things, swatching things, desperately trying to avoid makeovers, sniffing products, touching products, poking things. Yes, I'm a bit of a beauty geek, I know.
But, when a department store has a special event going on in their beauty hall, I'm even more likely to pop along and poke more things! I didn't know this, but twice a year House of Fraser hold their "Beauty Confidential" event, which has some fabulous offers, events and wonderful competitions, both online and in their 63 stores around the country. This year's event starts tomorrow, 23rd April, and runs for two weeks up until 7th May.
What can you expect? Well, in their main offer, if you spend £50 in-store on beauty at House of Fraser, or on HouseOfFraser.co.uk, you'll get a whopping £10 off any of these beauty essentials:
1. Gucci Guilty Fragrance
2. Lancôme Visionnaire Serum
3. Decléor Baume Intense Relax
4. Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator
5. Guerlain Noir G Mascara (my favourite! And, at £25 instead of £35, an unmissable bargain)
6. Clarins Hand and Nail Treatment Cream
7. YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick
8. Dior Forever Foundation
9. Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye
10. Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream
House of Fraser are also holding two competitions, both of which have completely wonderful prizes. Firstly, there's the Espa Day Spa package competition where you can win a day at the (completely beautiful) Spa at the Corinthia Hotel, worth £350. I've been lucky enough to spend an hour at the Corinthia spa before now, and I can promise you that this prize is not to be missed!
Or, if a spa day doesn't float your boat, you could try and win an overnight stay at the achingly trendy Babington House, which comes complete with a treatment from the wonderful people at Cowshed.
There's also a wide variety of in-store events from brands such as Guerlain, Shisheido, Nails Inc, Creme de la Mer, Thierry Mugler and Clarins, so keep your eyes peeled for what's happening in your local store!
As if all that is not enough, make sure you follow @HouseOfFraser on Twitter, as they'll be doing a daily giveaway too, with their hashtag: #beautyconfidental Oh, and you might want to keep an eye on the House of Fraser Facebook page too, you never know ...!
What are you waiting for? Get shopping! Make sure you pick up a copy of their Beauty Confidential magazine while you're there, too.
