Beauty queens, if the Boxing Day sales are not already your favourite time of year, it will be soon!
Why is Boxing Day such a massive shopping event? Well, since most retailers buy a whole load of extra stock for Christmas, there is usually heaps of stuff left over that they have to get rid of before the new year. This is why Boxing Day is the shopping day that beauty dreams are made of. Mascaras, eye creams, perfume, serums and more are all on sale.
Below is a list of the Beauty Sales worth knowing about for Boxing Day. Alternatively, you can also shop the full list of Boxing Day Sales so you don't miss out on a single bargain.

Almost every major retailer had a Boxing Day deal last year. Savings varied greatly between different stores, with higher end retailers like David Jones and Saks Fifth Avenue offering smaller discounts on a selected range and more affordable stores like Priceline offering almost 50% discounts.
Here are just a few of the beauty retailers and their Boxing Day sale from last year.
This year is a very exciting year in beauty. The growing popularity of beauty giants like Sephora and MECCA is forcing other beauty retailers to be more competitive.
So what does this mean for Boxing Day? We can expect to see some top notch sales and very low prices as sites like ry.com.au, Alive Skin & Hair and Nourished Life compete with the bigger stores. Similarly, prices at the major department stores will also be lower given the increased market competition.
Here's a list of some of our favourite stores that we think will have a sale.
The real reason here is price. It is extremely unlikely you'll ever find better prices on the current ranges of beauty in stores.
Beauty and skincare products can be a little harsh on the wallet. Buying the right skin creams and the luxe foundations that you love is expensive, so why not stock up when they're cheaper? If you buy products at the sales that you would ultimately have to buy at some point, you'll end up saving yourself a wad of cash.
Also, loads of brand release a few limited edition products in the lead up to Christmas. So if you don't snap them up in the sales, you won't get another chance to try them.
This is a personal choice really. Some time there are one off sales in store but most of the time in store sales are reflected online.
When you shop online you don't have to deal with crowds or packed carparks. You can also very easily compare products across stores. Products are also less likely to sell out online because the online store links back to a central warehouse, whereas a bricks and mortar store only has what's in the stock room on the premises.
If you prefer the experience of visiting a store and physically browsing through products then maybe in store shopping is for you. If you know what you want and you want to compare prices across multiple store quickly and easily, then online shopping is definitely for you.

finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
