For my honeymoon I went to Greece where I found SEPHORA! Hello!
Aside from that, as I was really hot and uncomfortable the whole time I did end up doing more shopping than necessary. Over in Greece they have lots of Apivita and Korres around even in regular mini pharmacies (which I frequented for bite sprays!).
I picked these up from the Airport – it was buy one get one free and just 5 euros a pack – so for a total of around £8 I ended up with 4 bottles of Korres body wash!
These cost about £7.50 each in the UK so it was a good bargain! I chose Vanilla Cinnamon (yum) and Jasmine – both are really gorgeous, the scents are not overpowering and they feel good on the skin.
In the slightly bigger pharmacies I kept seeing bargain bucket type things with Korres goody bags – these had a mixture of products in them and were about 40% less than retail price. I chose two:
There was also a red lip kit and a bronzed one.
These were around 16 euros each – in the Coral lovers is a lipstick, polish, eye pencil and mini fragrance. In the Khaki lovers is an eyeshadow, lip gloss, black eye pencil and mini perfume. I checked the stand nearby to see if these were current colours (they are) and asked if they were close to expiry (apparently not and they’d have at least 1-2 years on them once opened).
Who knew Greece had such beauty treasures!
What kind of goodies do you pick up on holiday?
