Boots is one of our favourite beauty destinations to shop at the best of times, offering everything from affordable skincare to high end hair tools. But when it announces one of its storewide savings event, its offering of beauty bargains becomes completely irresistible.
However, even the most savvy of beauty buyers can find the offers overwhelming. Do you stock up on a year’s worth of practical items? Prepare for the heatwave by buying the best everyday SPFs? Or should you finally take the plunge for that investment beauty buy you’ve been waiting for?
What is the Boots summer sale?
This year, Boots will be running its Summer Savings Event from the 8th of July to the 13th, but crucially, the sale only applies online, so no need to tackle the crowds to get the best beauty bargains in your basket. Phew.
Offers are currently running across perfume, electricals, hair, skincare, makeup and tools, so you’ll be hard pressed not to find something you want or need.
To avoid the sale panic setting in, read on for my best picks from the Boots Summer Savings event and nab yourself a bargain (or ten).
Dyson’s hair tools are a huge beauty investment, but the quality and results you get when using them are pretty incomparable (trust me, I swear by them). If you’ve been waiting for a good deal before making the commitment, now is the time: Boots is offering £100 worth of points when you purchase the Dyson Corrale, which is basically a free £100 gift card to spend on anything you want in the store. Yes please!
No7 Summer Glow Beauty Bundle
Looking to give your skincare and makeup a summer revamp? This No7 kit includes all you could need to achieve super glowy summer skin, including the No7 Radiance+ skincare range. The saving on this kit is mind blowing, setting you up with a full skincare routine (plus all the makeup goodies) for just £64.
L’Oreal Magic Retouch Temporary Instant Grey Root Concealer Spray
For those of us with longer hair, tying it up in the heatwave becomes pretty non-negotiable. But if you find that your sleek bun never looks as polished as the celebrities‘, there’s a reason as to why: it’s all down to this can.
It’s a celebrity hairstylists’ (now worst kept) secret thanks to TikTok, and is used to spray around the hairline to give a fuller appearance to hair, covering up any lighter patches where the scalp shows through. The best part is it’s now down from £8.99 to £5.99, so stock up!
OGX Thick & Full+ Biotin & Collagen pH Balanced Conditioner
Okay, shampoo and conditioner might not be the most exciting beauty buy, but it’s a practical and money-savvy one at the very least. Boots is currently offering half price on a huge selection of haircare, so why not stock up for the next few months and save a pretty decent amount of ££ in the process.
This conditioner from OGX is great for those looking to add volume and thickness to their hair and in my opinion, offers results that rival more expensive products on the market.
Isle Of Paradise Ultimate Glow Kit
The heatwave is well underway, but the same might not be said for your tan. To give your body and face a glow boost ahead of any summer plans, get your hands on this kit from Isle of Paradise. It includes one of our favourite face tanning drops, as well as a full size body mousse, body mousse refill and tan mitt. The kit is worth over £66 when bought separately, but is just £27.50 with the summer savings offer.
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser Oil Free Natural Skin Perfector
If you’re a makeup addict, now is the time to stock up on cult Laura Mercier products, with 20% off across the range. If you prefer a tinted moisturiser, this is one of the best on the market. The oil-free version makes a perfect lightweight summer base for those with oilier skin types, allowing you to build to a light-medium coverage.
La Roche-Posay Retinol B3 Serum
If you’re already a La Roche-Posay loyalist or want to try the brand for the first time, here’s your chance to get your hands on its products for 20% off. LRP is great for those looking to try actives such as retinol for the first time, and its Retinol B3 Serum (currently £30.40) is an Eliza-approved entry point due to its low retinol percentage and cocktail of skin soothing ingredients.
BaByliss Platinum Diamond Straightener
If the Dyson Coralle is out of your budget, a more affordable alternative is BaByliss’ Platinum Diamond Straightener, which is currently half price at £55, usually £110. It features Ionic frizz control to smooth hair while you straighten, and heats up within a matter of seconds for super-speedy styling.
Skinny Tan Wonder Collection Gift Set
Yes it’s another tanning set, but this one is slightly different. With more than 50% off the original price, this kit contains full-sized products of Skinny Tan’s Wonder Serum, Gradual Tan and Dry Mist Finishing Spray to get you on track to a healthy summer bronze.

Dr Jart+ Ceramidin Moisturising Set
The internet has always collectively fan-girled over Dr Jart’s skincare products, with the Cicapair range going viral thanks to its almost magic-like ability to conceal redness with just one cream. The real superhero from Dr Jart’s range (especially for those looking for a moisturiser to tackle dry skin) is undeniably the Ceramidin Range (specifically the Ceramidin Cream) which cocoons skin in a silky, super moisturising veil to nourish and help repair the skin barrier. As the cream itself is normally £30, with this set you’re getting this for 20% off and the benefits of a toner and mask.
