In the past I've always used TK Maxx for clothes or shoes. I've never looked at the beauty products because I thought they were all obscure, weird expensive stuff that nobody bought. Then last year I noticed a free cruelty-free make-up brands there and picked up a Too Faced eye primer and a NYX lipstick. This time I went and had an in-depth look at the beauty and came back with a mini haul!
It was quite spooky, because I had been looking at Alba Botanica's leaping bunny certified sun care range online the same morning and lo and behold I went and found it at TK Maxx. I picked up the aloe vera SPF30 and the green tea SPF45. These aren't mineral sun creams but they have good reviews from what I've read and don't contain oxybenzone or octinoxate. I might add that the weather's gone lousy since I bought them so they have yet to be opened.
All in all a fabulous haul from TK Maxx and Homesense. The trouble with getting attached to these products is that you often can't get them online in the UK unless with a bank loan, so I suspect I will be stalking these shops on a regular basis.
Has anyone else found great things here?
