Preparing for summer involves stocking up on your favourite beauty buys, and for a limited time, you can now get Estée Lauder's much-loved foundation for less.

The Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Foundation with SPF 10, now £33.57 here (was £39.50), has been reduced on the Boots website as part of a huge premium beauty sale, saving shoppers £5.93. But there's a way to get it even cheaper.

When you enter code 'FOUNDATION5' at checkout, you'll receive a further 5% off the popular makeup buy, bringing down the price from £33.57 to £31.89. This saves you a total of £7.61 on the RRP – but the deal is only running online.

There's also the chance to bag a free Estée Lauder gift set worth £111 when you buy two selected products. To qualify, simply add one skincare or foundation from the brand to your basket. Or, if you buy three items, you can get a free setting mist gift worth £28 – while stocks last.

The Double Wear foundation is a matte, oil-free formula, promising 24 hours of medium-to-full coverage. It's also sweat, heat and humidity-resistant. Beauty lovers can choose from over 60 shades for all skin tones.

The Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation is a best-seller for a reason

The lightweight product is easily buildable, so you can create the perfect base for any occasion. Its formula is both non-comedogenic and fragrance-free.

Over at Boots, more than 3,700 people have given the Estée Lauder item a five-star rating, earning it an average score of 4.7. One shopper shared: "I have bought this product for many years and would not buy anything else. It does what it says. Doesn’t fade and lasts all day."

A second wrote: "Stay in place makeup is exactly what it does coverage is so smooth and light. Honestly, this is the best makeup I have ever had."

While a third gushed: "This is my foundation of choice, the coverage is amazing, can be a bit expensive, but I watch for deals. Would not use anything else."

It's on sale for a limited time only

But someone else found the formula to be a little drying, adding: "It does go flaky around my nose a bit, I have very dry skin though but I find a hydrating primer makes the appearance a lot better."

Shop the Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place SPF 10 Foundation for £33.57 here instead of its usual RRP of £39.50. To get it for even less, be sure to add code FOUNDATION5 when you reach the checkout, which will lower the price to £31.89 – saving you an extra 5%.

We're also huge fans of the NARS Cosmetics Natural Radiant Longwear Foundation, £31.20 here (was £39), which offers a natural-looking finish. You can buy it at Lookfantastic.
