On the whole, rinse-off products like shampoo and soap can be bought on a budget and you can easily save money on everyday products without feeling like you're depriving yourself. Your essentials - facial moisturizer, SPF and intensive products like night serums - will require a little investment and it's best not to scrimp on these. To make real savings on your beauty budget, head to the supermarket for a few surprise buys like coconut oil and even food colouring. Being thrifty with the bathroom basics will hopefully leave room for a little (cheap) indulgence! Here's our guide to how to look great on a limited beauty budget.
Boots Aqueous Cream
As winter draws ever closer, a soap-based cleanser might feel too drying for your face. Aqueous cream removes make-up and 'melts' in water, leaving your skin clean without any of the drying squeak, and at £3.97 for a massive tub, it definitely falls into bargain category. You can also use this product as a moisturizing shave cream and as a body wash for sensitive skin, replacing your normal soap.
