Budget Skincare Buys

Monday, 22 April 2013



Hi Girlies! Now I love having expensive skincare with pretty packaging as much as the next person, but when it comes down to it I'd rather have the lipstick than the cleanser, but maybe that's just me? So, I thought I would share with you all some cheap beauty products which really work and could make great alternatives to some high end products. 

One really cheap product which I love is Sudocrem. I've heard that lots of celebrities swear by this so I thought I would try it out for myself to see if they were right. Turns out they were, It dries up spots and clears them faster than most products that I've tried (trust me, I've tried hundreds!) that actually claim to treat acne. I got this little pot from the 99p store so its a real bargain. Its a really handy size to carry around with you so it's great if your travelling or staying overnight somewhere. I always take this product if I'm going on holiday because it's also really good for sunburn, being a pale girl I burn so easily and it rarely turns into a tan. I wouldn't say that this product is as soothing as some after-suns but it does work the same or better than most that I've tried to help clear up the sunburn as quickly as possible. Although I would just use this for my sun burnt face as it doesn't spread too easily so could take quite a while to rub all over your body! 

Another product which I find is great for sunburn (can you tell I get burnt alot?!) is the aloe vera gel by Holland and Barrett. Now, I'm sure your all aware of the fact that aloe vera is really soothing and great for sunburn but I've seen a lot of brands selling similar products to this one for twice the price. This has no additives or perfumes so you can't smell it when you apply it which I think is a good thing because nobody really wants to smell like aftersun and it means you can wear whatever perfume you want with it if your going out on holiday. This costs £6.99 or 2 for £7 which I think is a pretty good deal because its something you can just keep in your cupboard and are always going to need! This product is also amazing for sensitive skin as it doesn't contain any preservatives like its competitors. 

There are so many cleansers and make up removers out there now that its hard to choose one and find one you like and that works for you. I use baby lotion to take my make-up off and it works a dream! It removes my make-up no problem, even my waterproof mascara. I love this because it doesn't dry my skin out like a lot of make up removers so you don't have to cake your face in moisturizer straight after using it. I was surprised that when I started using this product my skin cleared up really well too. I've suffered with bad skin since I was 11 (unlucky or what?!) and fortunately its got a lot better now but I still love it when I find something that really helps to give me clear skin! 

At the moment, I'm using this Nivea eye make up remover because although my baby lotion does remove my eye make up, I much prefer to use a liquid to a cream for removing my eye make up. This one removes all my eye makeup without the need to rub my eyes too much because that can sometimes make my eyes sore, what more could I want? and its great for sensitive eyes/skin. 

Another product which I love is the Simple Hydrating Light moisturizer. My skin can get really dry or be really oily so I find that this product works well for both types depending on what my skin feels like doing that day. It is really moisturizing but its still light so it doesn't block my pores or make my skin oily, and it only costs around £2! It was on offer in sainsburys the other day so I currently have 3 boxes in my draws! 


Have you tried any of these products or know of any that I should try?

  2. Hi gorgeous, lovely post. I have also heard so many nice things about sudocrem. Need to get it for myself but it isn't sold here so for me it will cost a bit more. But if it is as great as they say then it is totally worth it. x

    1. It's one of those staple products because it does so much and can be used in so many ways! If you buy the big size tubs they last ages, I've had this tiny one for about 10 months now and it is still half full so it is value for your money. Thankyou for following me on Bloglovin, means alot! xxx
