High street shop you’ve never heard of cheaper than Boots selling top brands like Lancôme & Rimmel for as little as 59p | The Sun

THERE'S a shop you've likely never heard of where you can pick up branded goods for half the price of high street stores like Boots.

Bodycare is a discount retailer with around 130 stores across the UK and sells everything from toilet paper and shampoos to high-end cosmetics.

Shoppers can nab top brand items for massively discounted prices compared to well-known chains such as Boots and Superdrug.

For example, Rimmel London's 30ml bottle of Match Perfection Foundation sells for just £6.99 at Bodycare, while Superdrug sells the same bottle for £9.99.

This means you would save £3 by buying the same item at Bodycare.

Rimmel's 8ml Black Extra Super Lash Mascara 101 sells for £3.99 at Bodycare compared to £4.99 at Superdrug.

You can even get high-end brands at a huge discount.

For example, Elizabeth Arden's Flawless Finish Sponge-On Cream Makeup foundation costs £20.99 at Bodycare, while Boots sells the same item for £30, meaning you would save £9 by buying it from Bodycare instead.

And a 30ml bottle of Lancome's La Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum perfume costs just £49.99 at Bodycare, while at Boots it usually costs £65.
