Top 5 Affordable Skincare Products

Hi everyone! I don't know about you but for me personally I find myself much more likely to buy affordable skincare as it just isn't something I want to spend lots of money on buying high end brands. I would much rather spend my money on high end make up and then save money on skincare because I think you can get some amazing drug store products. So since it is getting colder and my skin is about to dry out even more than normal I thought I'd share with you some of my favourite products that are also affordable.


From left to right:

- Johnson's Makeup Be Gone Moisturising face wipes. Can I just say I have literally tried basically every affordable brands face wipes going, I love them because they are so quick and easy but these Johnson's ones are my absolute favourite, I swear by them! I buy the moisturising ones which is the blue packet which are specific to dry skin but you can also get the refreshing wipes for normal skin. I haven't found any face wipes that I love as much as these yet and I've tried a lot. Even the more pricey Body Shop ones just didn't compare. I love the smell and they are so effective at getting your make up off plus they leave my skin feeling so refreshed. They are £3 from my local supermarket however they are on offer quite a lot at half price so I would definitely keep an eye out and try them because they are amazing!

- St Ives Apricot Scrub. I know everyone raves about this but it really is worth the hype, this is the travel sized tube as it takes me quite a while to go through them plus this one was from my holiday to save room in my suitcase. I have the driest skin ever on my nose, it gets so flaky really quickly so I use this every other day or every few days and after using it the dry skin is instantly gone. It smells really good as well and I don't find it harsh on your skin at all and this isn't the sensitive skin version either. I believe the full sized product is around £4, different shops vary in price however it lasts ages and really does make a difference.

- Dirty Works Eye Cream. I really like this brand because it is so affordable, I buy this from Sainsburys and I get really tired looking puffy eyes when I don't have a very good sleep and this really does improve it. One thing I really notice when I wear this is that I can almost feeling a firming sensation under my eyes as if the skin is getting tighter, a good feeling though because it makes me realise it is working! My bags and puffy eyes are instantly reduce, I couldn't remember the exact price for this but I believe it is around £4.99. Compared to some of the higher end eye creams you can buy this is a bargain for a product that actually works as well.

- Nivea Gentle Cleansing Cream Wash. This is amazing for dry and sensitive, I like to use this when my skin isn't in dire need of heavy duty products but still needs some TLC as I find it so refreshing. It is very moisturising and it leaves my skin feeling so insanely clean. I also get a lot of redness on my face and I think it calms it down a lot, also it smells so nice! You can buy from from Boots for £3.15 which is so cheap and great for when your skin needs a pick me up but isn't in really bad condition.

- The Body Shop Vitamin E Intense Moisture Cream. This product is definitely aimed at people like me with very dry skin as it is so hydrating, so if you have normal skin I wouldn't recommend it as it may leave you feeling a bit greasy. I love to use this after I've used the St Ives Apricot Scrub on my nose and it absorbs into my skin straight away leaving it so soft. A little goes a long way with this product as well so you get really good value for money, it retails at £13 so it's pricier than anything else I have included on this post however if you have really dry skin like me it is a life saver!

Let me know in the comments what affordable skin care products you love!
