Planning a holiday is fun isn’t it? Getting everything ready, packing and that early morning dash to the airport. Even in the stress of remembering to pack adapters, and make sure the oven is switched off, it’s all such a fun experience because you know…you’re going on holiday! But the beauty lover in me doesn’t just love the holiday part, in fact the airport shopping in World Duty Free is almost as good as the holiday!
I’d say that World Duty Free is the Beauty Mecca. Every single beauty brand you could possibly want can be found here and all those favourites of yours are cheaper than anywhere else because they’re duty free. It’s an excellent opportunity to stock up on your beauty favourites for less than ever, and also to pick up some new bits (like I do, every time!) to take on your trip!
So in the spirit of sharing with you one of my favourite beauty shopping experiences, here’s five reasons why shopping at World Duty Free is even better than you think:
As I mentioned, World Duty Free stock every beauty brand you could think of. There’s all the high-end brands you’d expect, like: Chanel, Dior, Benefit Cosmetics, Urban Decay and even M.A.C. But did you know they also stock brands like Tom Ford and Jo Malone? Which is pretty impressive considering the fact that neither of those brands ever have any type of seasonal ‘sale’ so buying from World Duty Free is the only way of getting these extremely high-end products for less – pretty cool huh?!
2. Everything Under One Roof
It’s not just perfume and make-up you can buy at World Duty Free. And it’s not just the traditional bottle of spirits to pick up on your way to jetting off. Nope, there’s so much more you can pick up at World Duty Free, including handbags, sunglasses, food and snacks and when I went to Gatwick they even had Pandora jewellery there!
3. Multi-pack Savings
Not only do they stock all your beauty favourite brands, they also offer some amazing multi-packs of products that you’d never be able to imagine! For example the Benefit Porefessional Face Primer Travel Trio. A three-pack of everyone’s favourite smoother-than-smooth face primer, it only costs £53.15. Which individually would cost £78, so you save £24.85 – nearly the price of a whole tube! Such great value! Another special multi-pack I love is the Salvatore Ferragamo Signorina fragrance two-pack. Which is one of my favourite perfume brands but hard to find, so a two pack is great for stocking up.
But not only do they have every brand you could want, prices you can’t beat and multi-pack savings. Nope, they also have Travel Exclusives which are products that you won’t find anywhere at all. I wrote about the previous Nars JetSetter collection a while ago, and it really was stunning, and I can’t wait to try the new updated collection. At the moment there’s some incredible collections and products. Most notable for me was the Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy New Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette. The reason I love this so much is that Estee Lauder haven’t realised more than the odd quad eyeshadow palette for a while, so a palette is a dream as I really rate their eyeshadow consistency. And it’s all the nude basic shades that are perfect for everyday wear.
5. Pick and Collect
The best part about shopping at World Duty Free is that even if you get caught in traffic, or you don’t have enough time planned in to browse, you can shop ahead of your trip! Yes, you can browse the website in full, pick what you want to buy and collect it from the special desk at your chosen airport. It saves all the time in the world and also means you can take full advantage and shop with ease. Plus for people like me, I pick what I want ahead of time, collect it at the airport and still have a browse for a few extras!
I really can’t recommend shopping at World Duty Free enough. Now I just need to book a trip somewhere so I can shop first…
