Great Skin Under £5

It’s not a complete myth that spending a bit more on skin care can be better for your skin, but after trialling oodles of products out over the years, I have found some amazing skin care products costing less than £5. I think it’s about time I share them with you lovely readers out there and help you get fantastic looking skin.


I’ve only recently started using a couple of these products including our first one up; St Ives Blemish Fighting Apricot Scrub. This scrub is great for those of us with spot prone skin who need a quick refresh to clean those pores. I absolutely love the scent of this scrub and you can definitely smell the apricot in it. The gritty bits are not too harsh on the skin and left my skin feeling and looking healthier. I try to use this once a week as not to be too harsh but also get the best looking skin possible.

Next up and one of the best face masks I have ever used is the Quick Fix Facials Anti-Blemish Mud Mask. This mask is great for clearing the pores and helping fight those pesky spots. I love to use this once a week again for a quick refresh and also give my skin a healthy glow.

My favourite bargain is the Wilko cocoa butter body lotion which is under £2!! My mum recommended this to me years ago when I started with my problematic skin and I have never looked back. This is my go to product when I start having a flare up and need to stop using a few products. This moisturiser leaves my skin soft and clears up dry skin and spots within a couple of days. I would recommend this to anyone who needed a cheap product that definitely works.

For those of you looking for a multi-purpose affordable product then look no further than the Olay Double Action moisturiser day cream & Primer. Again my lovely mum put this in my christmas stocking and it is one of the best light moisturisers I have ever used. It primes my skin perfectly for my foundation and also stops it getting shiny throughout the day.

God bless my lovely mum for putting me onto some of these products in the first place. Between the two of us we have found some great bargain products over the years.

I hope you find some use in these products and get the urge to buy them for yourself. They are must have items for your makeup table or bathroom cabinet.
