Budget Beauty Buys

If you’re feeling a mighty pinch in your Prada purse at the moment, but still want to treat yourself to a couple of beauty buys then check out my top 12 affordable recommendations to get you through January:

1. Montage Jeunesse Chocolate Face Masque£1 Superdrug

You might have sworn off chocolate for the New Year, but no one said you can’t slap it all over your face! Yum Yum.

2. Garnier BB Cream£7 Boots

BB creams were a hit last year and are likely to become even more popular. Disguise imperfections and blemishes while maintaining a light dewy look.

3. Bourjois Effet Smokey Eye Pencil:£5.49

This double tipped pencil with a smudging tool on one end will instantly glam up back to work January make up.

4. No7 Airbrush Away Primer:£19.50 Boots

Not so budget, but a cheeky skin investment! If your skin is still recovering from the party season give this a try under foundation for a brighter smoother complexion.

5. Velcro Rollers (Denman Medium ThermoCeramic)£3.57 from Boots

Volumise and glamorise dull January days with gorge bouncy hair without forking out for an expensive blow dry!

6. Dove Visible Effects Nourishing Body Lotion£4.99 Superdrug

Don’t let the cold weather leave your skin looking dull and feeling tight, this nourishing lotion from Dove moisturises intensely without and greasy residue – winner!

7. Eyebrow Threading£3

Yes i did say £3, if you go to the right parts of London town then your can expect to pay this little (or less) try Tooting, Hownslow or parts of East London for perfectly shaped brows which cost less than a Starbucks! Tidy brows make such a huge difference to a face – absolute must!

8. Vaseline Lip Therapy Coco£1

A must have handy tin of lip butter, and this one smells of sweets! Delish.

9. Models Own Beetle Juice Nail Polish£5

A lick of nail paint brings a smile to most ladies. Inspired by the wings of a Beetle, these ‘Beetle Juice‘ polishes have an amazingly cool double colour finish and look so pretty on.

10. The Body Shop Lipscuff£8

I love this for smooth kissable lips. Scrub away dry flaky skin with this gentle scrub.

11. Look Beauty Double Hit Lip£8 exclusively at Superdrug

With a lippy at one end and a matching gloss the other, this is a gorgeous beauty item and money saver in one!

12. Sweet Almond Oil£4 approx from health stores and chemists

A bottle of Sweet Almond Oil means your beauty treatments are endless…massage into scalp for a hair treatment. Add an essential oil to create a personalised body moistuiser. Apply to dry cuticles, elbows and knees…There is so much you can do!
