Last week I had a little time to kill whilst in town. At these times I usually browse makeup counters or shoes and buy something over priced just because I’m bored, then yep, you guessed it, cry later when I see what little cash I have. But this day was different, this day I picked up three things so cheap I had to check the till receipts after I’d used them to make sure they were the price I thought they were.
First up is a product I’ve used loads in the last week and it was the cheapest by miles. Whilst in superdrug Looking at cleansers I spotted an own brand range on the bottom shelf that id never seen before. Normally I’m cautious of new cleansers as my skin is rather dry so I normally go for ones I know, but when I looked at the price I had to look not once, but three times to make sure it was correct!! I’m talking about the superdrug simply pure spot clearing face wash And it was …… Wait for it……
Yes folks there was no pound sign there, it really was 30p! Hmm for so little is it going to damage my skin? Well according to the packaging it’s fragrance free, paraben free, hypoallergenic, dematalogically approved and has visible results from day 1. In the basket it went! I had a mini breakout so thought I’d give it a go and test it’s spot busting properties lol.
I was pleasantly surprised by this product, it didn’t have a smell to it but it was exfoliating and cleansed REALLY well, even removed mascara (although im not encouraging cleansing round the eyes with exfoliating cleansers *cough*) the only problem I had with this was it was quite runny, which for 30p I’m not complaining. My skin didn’t feel too dry after and I did help to calm my breakout.
I wouldn’t use this everyday, maybe twice a week as it may get drying but for 30p, what a bargain of a lifetime :)
Next up (if you can follow that) was something else I got from superdrug And it was the MUA lipstick in shade 1. I think I’ve blogged about this before so il keep it short. It’s basically a berry red colour and for £1 it’s a brill lipstick. The colour lasts for a couple of hours so isn’t too bad for a cheaper lipstick and you get lots of product for your buck. Warning- This lipstick tends to bleed a lot, please wear lip liner :).
Last but def not least I went to primark Well I got quite a few bargains from here but my fave was the love vanilla and wild rose body scrub. Ok, ok so I picked this up for the cute little pearls on the packaging, it looked so pretty and after a quick sniff I was sold.
So basically, this is a sugar scrub, it was £2 and it has a pleasant smell. I wouldn’t say it was vanilla or a classic rose scent but defiantly floral. The product is very a scrubby but very sticky, this may put a lot of you off but I usually exfoliate then wash with shower gel so it didn’t bother me. For the price it was nice and you get a generous 220ml so I more than likely will buy it again. They do a different scent so will maybe but that next time, I also know my girls will be fighting over the pretty pot when it’s done.
I hope you enjoyed this post, I’m sorry if I rambled about the cleanser but it was 30p haha. Have you got any bargain products you want to share? Please let me know as I’d love to give them a try
