Editor's Guide: How to Shop the Sales

It’s sales season and we’re all looking to make a bargain! But it’s so easy to end up with a bunch of stuff that you don’t need or use. So what should you consider when shopping the sales? Here’s a quick guide.

KNOW WHAT YOU NEED
Before buying anything new, give your makeup bag a clear-out. Throw away any broken or out-of-date products, and get rid of anything you haven’t worn in a long time. Then see what’s missing. Make a list of what you need and focus on getting those products. This will help you curb any impulse spending.

 

FOCUS
It’s fun to experiment with new shades and products, particularly when a lower price removes some of the risk. But always ask yourself: “Will I actually use this?” If you’re doubtful, don’t shop it. It’s not a bargain if you never use it.

ASK AN EXPERT
Struggling to choose between two or three products? Ask your Oriflame Consultant for their advice. Their job is to be experts in all of the products available to you, and to understand your personal taste and needs.

READ ONLINE REVIEWS
Still unsure? Read an online review. Reviews are honest and impartial feedback left by other customers online. It’s a great way to check if the product’s right for you.

UNDERSTAND VALUE
Percentage discounts always grab the eye, but don’t forget about offers – sometimes these provide even better value for money.

STAY CONNECTED
Signing up for emails and following Oriflame on social media (@oriflame) will help you keep up-to-date with products when they go on offer.

SET A BUDGET
Decide how much money you are willing to spend in the sales and stick to that. It’s not worth getting a shock at the end of the month!

KNOW WHEN TO SAY NO
Some products never go into sale. If you’ve been lusting after a new skin care set, don’t splurge during the sales on something else. Instead, put that money aside and save up for the products you really want.
