    Superdrug is offering up to 55% off in its Black Friday sale, but the MSE Deals team noticed that one of its featured deals is a fair chunk of change more expensive than elsewhere. Its offering the 'I Heart Revolution chocolate' vault tin for £40 (was £80) but the same item's CHEAPER at Revolution, at £24.

    (Prices correct at time of posting but be aware they may change.)
