Information about Boots
Boots is the UK's leading pharmacy-led health and beauty retailer. Both the high street store and online site offer a complete range of beauty, fragrance, baby, diet, fitness and hair products, and pharmacy services.
The brand was founded in 1849, so it’s been around for a considerable length of time, always keeping up with the latest health & beauty trends. If you're after something health and beauty related, Boots tends to be the go-to store – and with over 2,300 stores across the UK, it’s very likely that there’s one near you.
If you're feeling peckish, there's also the famed meal deal on offer at £3.39 or less (or £3.99 or less in London and airport stores). You get a sandwich (or equivalent), a side and a drink. It offers some pretty good options in comparison to supermarket meal deals, which makes them a student favourite if you're after a quick lunchtime treat.
Boots product examples
You’ll find everything you need at Boots in terms of health and beauty products, including prescription medication, makeup, skincare and toiletries. The brand also offers an excellent range of gifts (especially at Christmas) alongside other items such as photo albums, swimwear and sunglasses.
Boots has really upped its game in terms of premium beauty brands on offer over the past couple of years. Today, you’ll find brands like Fenty Beauty, Huda Beauty, ICONIC London, KVD Vegan Beauty, Kylie Cosmetics and more, all available from the Boots online store.

Boots Advantage Card
Boots Advantage Card is the retailer’s loyalty scheme, offering you the chance to earn 4 points (worth 4p) for every £1 you spend. If you’re a regular shopper at Boots, you can rack up points quickly, especially as there are often ‘extra points’ offers and promotions. You can redeem your points for money off (though they can’t be used as part-payment). For example, 3560 points would be worth £35.60, and enough to get you your favourite foundation for free!
There are also tons of exclusive Advantage Card holder offers available through the Boots app. You just need to select which offers you’re interested in and load them onto your card so they can be automatically applied when you’re at the checkout. It’s as simple as that!
Recycle at Boots
Boots is doing its bit to help keep our planet beautiful by offering you the chance to bring in any empty beauty, health, wellness and dental products (from any brand), that can’t be recycled at home.
When you bring five empty products to one of the in-store recycle bins, Boots will give you 250 Advantage Card points when you spend £10 or more (worth £2.50). Everyone’s a winner!
