The Summer Top Up Sale

Just as July about to start; I start running out of cream, where best to get nice moisture cream. None other than The Body Shop think I have found me go to store guys; even when it’s a bargain bucket going on there guys, if you work out the best deals when you go in. 

After a series of researching of how much of my fine luxury items that I had brought in The Body Shop summer sale; I had to do a bit of maths to know what the percentage was of each product, I do have to point out that I did have to use a calculator to workout. Never got on with maths in the first place; plus the receipt didn’t really have much of the original price to it, so I had to look it up for starters. 

I do have to confess my dear sweet readers; I don’t even have Maths GCSE, not because I didn’t want to learn. It was because I didn’t like it and it didn’t like it; so I gave up even trying to get on with it, that’s what calculators are for in my book. Along with I prefer the whole writing side of things than maths calculations; that’s why I wouldn’t want to work in a store again, however is a maths question for you. I want to see if you can work it out; by the time you get to the end of the bottom of this blog, which one will last the longest and more cheapest way of doing it. 

Okay. I walked into The Body Shop with one of my closest friends Megan Ann; to begin I started picked up three different types of body cream Shea, Strawberry and Almond & milk. Each product had 200ml with the costing of each pot of £15 a time; with one pot it may take me a month and few days to use up, if I had three of those it would cost me £45 for three months.

As I went round the table I had seen a sale on the table. Once I had got round to the other side; to my amazement I could get more in a big pot of moisturising cream, in each one pot came with 400ml. The original price of the product was £30 each; however with the sale on using the 10% which came down to £20 a pot. From the original price of £30 I would get 60 days worth of money from having two products that big; using the sale of 10% which comes to £20, I would get 40 days out of the two products. 60 days is roughly 12 weeks in total use of both products; with the summer sales of £20, the number of weeks of 40 days are roughly 12 weeks. It looks more likely the 400ml is more worth it than the 200ml moisturiser that I had originally. 

When it comes to the shower gel if I went for the 250ml strawberry shower gel costing me £5 a time. Compare it to the big strawberry shower gel at 750ml at the original price of £15.00 to the sale price of 5% which came to £10.00. This big bottle can last me about 3-5months; as I had brought this on my birthday at the start of the year, yep that’s a lot of showers and baths in that time. 

All in all my little goodies came to £50 just for three items that I use daily; what’s more is that if I brought three pots of 200ml and the shower gel, it would be £55 all together. So the best option for me to get the three goodies for £50 than four goodies for £55.

Apologies if my maths isn’t correct it’s just an average estimate thing than the full thing. Love my little hauls that I love getting that I use daily. I will have another haul coming soon keep an eye out for it in the next couple of days; something that you may think, hang on this is completely different to than any other haul she has done
