Amongst all the very expensive beauty brands I buy and try, I keep coming back to some old faithfuls that really don’t cost a lot at all.
In fact, as I am getting older the price per product increases if it’s going on my face but gets cheaper if it’s a body lotion, potion or cream.
I wanted to share a couple that I have been slathering on recently – and they definitely won’t break the bank.
First up is Superdrug’s Vitamin E All Over Body Cream with Argan Oil at a whopping £2.99 for 475ml. This is a revelation. Firstly, it’s massive so a pot will do you for ages. Secondly, it’s limited edition – two words always guaranteed to get me hooked. Thirdly the smell is UH-MAZING, a lovely fresh, clean scent with a floral base. It glides on easily and is great for dry skin, but in particular areas like elbows or legs.
Superdrug are 100% happiness guaranteed, meaning it’s suitable for vegetarians, vegans and absolutely no animal testing. I seriously cannot believe the value of this cream. Buy it now.
Next it’s Sophie La Girafe Baby Protection Cream – a product sent for me to try on the kids which has now been secreted away in my make up bag.
Part of the range that brought you the teething wonder toy, the Sophie la Girafe skincare collection was founded by former beauty editor Jonna Jalkanen. It’s full of natural ingredients, without allergens or strong essential oils that’s perfect for baby skin – but also an amazing hand cream for you. I love it – plus the size (50ml) means you can chuck it in your bag and use throughout the day too.
And finally, the world has gone mad for a coconut – and I’ve gone mad for Vita Coco Coconut Oil (250ml) which I have been slathering on my lips, skin and as a hair conditioner. It’s 100% raw, organic and so good you can even cook with it. Just don’t go mad with it as a moisturiser on your face as it’s quite rich and will probably cause a few spots.
