Advantages Save money with premium brand companies
Disadvantages Postage can be expensive (but look out for free postal discount codes)
Cheapsmells.com is a fantastic website in which you can find some fab bargains from premium cosmetics brands. There is also Cheapsmells.co.uk but they are virtually the same site just advertising different items on the first page when clicked on but you can register on either site if you live in the UK.
It can also be found on Twitter and Facebook (two of the most popular social networking sites where you can post invitations about the site on to one another).
I bought a small fragrance gift set of Calvin Klein Eternity for my Dad, it contained 3 different varieties of the Eternity fragrance including the limited edition and new version of it, so there were 3 15ml bottles in the set altogether for £11.65 rather than its regular retail value of £35, so it was a massive saving of 66%. Plus my Dad has only ever tried the original which he loves so it gives him the chance to try the others and they are the perfect size for travelling. So this is an example of some of the fab things they have for sale on this website. I am guessing that some of the items on the website are old stock or discontinued stock from certain brands or gift sets that did not sell very well. However this is still great because if you loved a discontinued item from a specific brand you may be able to still purchase a few of them on here to keep yourself stocked up. For example, Clinique have a serum called Turnaround Visible Skin Renewer which is a serum that gently exfoliates the skin without harsh exfoliating granules however it used to be in a slightly thicker consistency which Mum adored having a drier skin which they no longer do... but I can buy it for her on this website.

There are several other headings including Home, Register (the link to create an account), Delivery (to describe delivery charges which range from £5.00 to £20.80 – so they are not particularly cheap if you are buying just one item), FAQs, Contact (with email and telephone number), My Account and a Log in button.
Cheapsmells accepts many cards including VISA, MasterCard, Switch and more. Plus the more important PayPal which most people tend to use now which is incredibly quick and easy – it just requires your password for your PayPal account.
This definitely has to be their Yves Saint Laurent’s Touche Eclat Radiant Touch which is an undereye highlighter pen which usually retails at £24.00 but you can get it on Cheapsmells.com for £16.55 (saving 31%). Plus in the UK you can only buy this product in one shade whereas on Cheapsmells.com it comes in another shade.The other great buy that stood out from the rest on Cheapsmells.com was the Tigi Shampoo and Conditioner Duo sets in 750ml bottles which are £14.95 saving 40% since they usually retail at £24.95. Plus these large bottles look great in the bathroom and they last for such a long time!
A fantastic site with a strange name but it definitely stuck in my head! Great products at cheap prices – perfect for those of us that love premium brands but not at their ridiculously high price tags! Go on treat yourself or buy some Christmas presents early! Fool your friends into thinking you spent a fortune on them – that always goes down a treat!
