Run, don’t walk – you’ve only got 24 hours to make use of the retailer’s flash deals

It’s Friday, which means one thing – the Boots £5 sale is back. After the success of its £10 Tuesday offer, its Friday sale follows the same idea of offering flash bargains, slashing some of its leading products to a mere fiver.

The offer is available for one day only, both in-store and online, and things do sell out fast, so you’ll have to act quickly.

In previous weeks we’ve seen some of our favourites reduced, including a No7 hydration mask and an Aussie’s hair mask. And you can also expect products from other household names – think Liz Earle and L’Oréal. There really is something for everyone.

Whether you need to stock up on your favourite make-up and skincare, or are looking to discover something new, the flash sale is the best time to do it.

And if your beauty bounty is well stocked, why not shop for your loved ones and make use of the discounted rate to pick up a present?

To make sure you stay in the know, we’ve curated a round-up of the products we think are well worth splashing the cash on, including one of our favourite cleansers, which is now 50 per cent off. You can thank us later.

You can trust our independent round-ups. We may earn commission from some of the retailers, but we never allow this to influence selections. This revenue helps us to fund journalism across The Independent.
