A Duo Of Post-Holiday Sales To Save Your Budget From Extinction

It’s a few days after Christmas, so we’re not exactly flushed with cash. With going overboard on presents and traveling expenses hitting us hard, we could really use a budget break and a little inexpensive pampering for ourselves. That’s where this duo of stellar sales comes into play. Peep the list below to spruce up your beauty regimen and wardrobe without having to eat ramen the rest of the month.


The holidays are almost over, which means it's time to start regretting all those boozy eggnogs and sugary gingerbread cookies. Your skin is also probably feeling the backlash from all that pigging out. To save your pores — and budget — Berkeley-based skincare line Super is extending its sale through the end of the month! The complexion-saving lotions and potions will be slashed to 50% off! Not even Santa was that generous! Shop everything from the Hyper Hydrator (no dry patches, here!) to the Lush Lips conditioning balm for a smooth winter pucker. It’s sales like these that make us feel like we’re making a clean getaway!

Super, 1833 4th Street (at Hearst Avenue); 510-809-4366.


Didn’t unwrap any designer threads this Christmas? No worries, you can still score some high-end gear without having to hawk the goodies you did end up receiving. How so? Carrots is dishing out deals on luxury brands like Viktor & Rolf, Mason Martin Margiela, and Helmut Lang at 50% off starting today! Scurry on over to the shop and pick up everything from cape cozies to knitted pullovers on the cheap, and get a jump start on having the most stylish wardrobe of 2013.

Carrots, 843 Montgomery Street (between Pacific Avenue and Jackson Street); 415-834-9040.
