December is, without a doubt, dominated by Christmas, but once the big day has been and gone, it’s all eyes on the next big event. The sales.
For there are few days aside from Black Friday that are better for swooping in on a freshly discounted item that’s been idling on your wishlist for the best part of the year. With the main present-giving day of the year out of the way, you can concentrate your funds on getting that item that Father Christmas somehow didn’t end up leaving under the tree.
With free next day delivery for Prime members and seemingly every possible product under its digital roof, Amazon is one of the best places to find a bargain.
The online retailer has it all, from Amazon’s own range of tech - think Fires, Echos, Kindles and Ring Video Doorbells - to beauty essentials, handy DIY tools and groceries including American sweets and booze.
In fact, think of a brand and we defy you not to find it somewhere on Amazon’s endless digital shelves. The month after Christmas is the moment you’re most likely to find rollbacks on thousands of products, helping your cash stretch further.
We’ve found the best products in the sale to buy now and have in your hands as soon as the next day.

Philips Lumea Prestige IPL Hair Remover
The Philips Lumea Prestige is one of the most popular IPL hair removal machines on the market and there is good reason for that. The all-rounder is the brand’s most powerful model and will ensure unwanted hair has met its match with smart features and a tailored program for every part of the body.
The Lumea Prestige comes with handy attachments for your body, face and precision areas like your bikini line or underarm and features a SmartSkin sensor that automatically sets the intensity based on skin tone and the sensitivity of those areas.
It should only be used on naturally dark blonde, brown and black coloured hairs, which you specify based on a scale provided.
Skin should be hairless before use but opt for a razor over waxing or epilating for increased performance. Apply the window directly against your skin and press the button for the light to flash.
It automatically assess suitability for use as a type of safety check and will not work unless the window is placed firm and flat against your skin. You can either opt individual flashes for precision areas or reduce the overall time for larger zones like the legs by keeping hold of the button and sliding the device down the area, letting it zap as it goes. Be careful not to treat the same area twice in one session.
The removal is virtually pain less and you actually start seeing results in just three uses. It is fully charged in around an hour and a half and then can be used corded or cordless.
