Women Could Be Saving GBP 200 or More Per Year on Their Health and Beauty Bills, Says Savoo

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Feb. 28, 2011) - Shopping channel QVC revealed that the average woman spends £2,055 on maintaining her looks in the course of a year but, according to, she could be saving over £200 of that by searching for special deals and shopping smarter with voucher codes.

The research shows that on average £289 is spent on facial products and £717 on body maintenance; considering the average voucher code from Savoo gives consumers a discount of 10 per cent, health and beauty bills up and down the country could be reduced by a considerable amount.

In the current financial climate, sustaining an intensive and expensive health and beauty regime is difficult for many women and this is resulting in an increasing amount of shoppers turning to voucher codes. Getting money off high-priced items, such as Clarins Hydra Care Tinted Moisturiser and Aveda Green Science Face Firming Creme, makes a real difference to the purse; a 10 per cent saving on these or any other hair and beauty products with a Look Fantastic voucher is just one example of Savoo's current codes.

A survey carried out in December 2010 by the World Cancer Research Fund also found that one third of British people think gym memberships are too expensive. Spiralling costs on services means that consumers are purchasing home fitness equipment, DVDs and console games just so they can continue to exercise. Savoo lists deals and discounts from a wide range of online stores selling health and fitness equipment and media; currently there is a Zavvi deal, which offers up to 60 per cent off products from its fitness shop.

Simon Bird, Retail Partnerships Director at Savoo, said: "Women tend to find products and stick to a routine that works for them, which means when costs go up they tend to pay the price. However, savvy women are increasingly looking for deals and voucher codes so that they can maintain their health and beauty regimes, whilst saving money at the same time. With the average voucher from Savoo offering a 10 per cent discount, this means women all over Britain could be saving over £200 on their typical yearly health and beauty spend, which could go towards more family essentials."
