I am very excited to have been invited by Sarah to be a guest blogger and also honoured to have her fantastic writing on my blog. To get started I thought I’d tell you a little bit about me; I am a self-confessed bargain hunter. I believe that you can look and feel good without breaking the bank. There are so many brands and products out there that are just as good as their more expensive counterparts and my aim is to share these findings with everyone on my bargain beauty journey. Therefore, I thought it would only be right that I share with you my top budget products for a pamper evening, as we all need a little self-care every now and again. All of today’s products can be bought for less than £10 each!
Soap & Glory ‘Heel Genius’ Foot Cream (RRP £5.50) – If I am having a full pamper session to really relax, I use a variety of products from head to toe. Starting with the toes, this cream is a product that I have absolutely sworn by for years. It is the only product I have used on my feet that completely gets rid of dry and rough skin. It is scented with the typical Soap and Glory smell and feels really nourishing on the skin. I would recommend putting socks on after using however if you have wooden floors or you will learn the slippery hard way!
The Body Shop® Body Butter in ‘British Rose’ (RRP £6.00) – This is one of my more recent finds as I am notorious for forgetting to moisture my skin on my body! The cream feels luxurious on the skin and smells amazing! To be honest I would highly recommend any of the body butters from the body shop as they are more than worth the price.
Loreal ‘Smooth Sugars’ Clear Scrub (RRP £9.99) – This scrub is unusual for a couple of reasons, you can use it on your lips as well as your face and it also has self-heating properties! Admittedly the warming of the scrub on my skin was something to get used to, but it leaves my skin feeling really soft and gets rids of any dryness. I love the kiwi scent as it is really refreshing, but it may be a bit strong for some. For me this is a firm staple in my pamper routine.
Montagne Jeunesse Face Masks (RRP £1.00 or less!) – The ultimate bargain cruelty-free face mask! You can get these masks in such a variety of scents and textures that it is easy to find the one that suits your skin. You can also use their online beauty matchmaker to find a mask to suit your needs. I have always used these face masks and loved every single one that I have tried, even the messier ones!
Disney Princess Belle Hair Mask (RRP £3.99) – I love a good hair mask to round up a pamper session. Using a deep conditioning hair mask really helps to manage my frizzy hair and add some moisture back after using heat products. Another fantastic brand for deep conditioning treatments is Aussie, their products smell amazing and really do work on reducing frizz.
So there we have it, 5 products for less than £10 each for the ultimate budget pamper session. I hope you enjoyed it! Thank you for letting me share my budget beauty tips with your audience Sarah!
Note from Sarah – A big thank you to Kate for hopping over to my blog and sharing her tips for a budget pamper evening. I love these ideas, and I am definitely in need of the Loreal Clear Scrub, so that’s now on my list of must-buys. And as I always seem to be on a budget, everything being under £10 is right up my street!
