As I mentioned in my previous 'best of the drugstore' post (you can read it here) that most of us are probably feeling the financial pinch after Christmas, I thought I'd share my best of the drugstore products. And today I have my Best of the Drugstore skin care. Lower end skin care can be a bit hit and miss, but I think there are some real gems hidden in the eisles of Boots and Superdrug. So here are my picks:
Boots Botanics Hydration Burst Dual Action Cleanser // £5.99
This is a relatively new purchase but one I love! This product is very strange though, its a gel that melts into oil when it comes into contact with water. This is designed for dehydrated and sensitive skin - like mine. And this really does give me a thorough cleanse without making my skin dry or tight! I like to use this as my second cleanser, after removing my makeup and my skin is left clean, fresh and soft.
Soap and Glory Scrub Your Nose In It // £9 POST
I love, love, love this stuff! Its an AHA scrub that also doubles up as a mask. This lifts away dead cells, is deeply clarifying and refines pores! After use my skin is so soft, smooth and clean! I like to use this 2-3 nights a week, although if you have very dry skin I'd say only use it once a week as it can be quite drying.
Superdrug Vitamin E Refreshing Toning Mist // £2.99
This stuff is another drugstore love. Its a toning mist, rich in aloe vera to sooth and refresh the skin and Vitamin E to protect from the environment and many other vitamins to hydrate dry or dehydrated skin. I like to use this as a refreshing spray throughout the day when my skin starts to feel tight, or when my makeup becomes uncomfortable.
Soap and Glory Speed Plum Overnight Miracle Moisture Mousse // £14 POST
This overnight moisturiser is brilliant for anyone with dry skin or those just looking for that extra moisture injecting that skin needs in winter. This has super light mousse like texture that really packs a punch in terms of hydration! This promises to leave skin soft, smooth, radiant and reduce fine lines for glowing happy complexion! After using this my skin does feel soft, smooth and hydrated!
Soap and Glory Speed Plump All Day Moisture Marvel // £13
Another great product from Soap and Glory in the form of this daily moisturiser. This promises to brighten, firm and moisture for smoother looking skin! This is works great on my skin. It leaves my skin hydrated and smooth all day. It's also a great base for makeup!
Good Things Manuka Honey Daily Moisturiser // £7.99 POST
My skin loves this in winter. Its an intense moisturiser that is without Sulphates, mineral oils or Parabens. The skin loving ingredients include bees wax and royal jelly to intensely hydrate and bee venom to plump and firm!
Quick Fix Facials Anti Belmish Mud Mask // £4.99 POST
If blemishes are your problem this is the mask for you. Whenever I have a break out I reach for this and it literally takes the heads of spots (gross, I know). It is formulated with a bunch of great ingredients like Dead seas mud, salicylic acid and tea tree to prevent and help breaks outs. This mask would be great for those with oily skin to use regularly.
Superdrug Face Mask // £2.59 POST
These Superdrug face masks are brilliant value for money and perform like some with a much higher price tag! My favourites are:
- Superberry Exfoliating Mud Mask - this is a great gentle exfoliator and leaves my skin super soft and smooth after use.
- Aloe Vera De stress Mud Mask - I love this because it smells like my much loved Glam Glow and works in a similar way. Although, its not as good, it does leave my skin softer, smoother and more radiant looking.
So they're my top skincare picks from the drugstore. Have you tried any these? What are you top budget skin care picks?
Until next time...
