Hi everyone, hope you are all well and enjoying your summer. I was brain storming for days about what I should write my next post on. I have so many blog post ideas but there was none I wanted to write. Do you ever get like that? Skincare is something I don’t really splash out on, £20 is probably the most I would ever spend on any product unless I felt like the world was going to end if I didn’t buy it. So I think that makes all of my skincare products pretty affordable.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

Let’s talk about the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. I use this daily at night times to remove my make up. This works wonders for removing make up, even when I wear really heavy make-up after using 3-4 cotton pads with the water rubbed on it my face is clean. After use your face feels soft, clean and fresh – there is no feelings of grease or oil left afterwards which is great as this is advertised as a no rinse cleanser. This product is £1.99 on boots.com it is a complete and utter bargain.

The Body Shop Vitamin E Cream Cleaner

Next to discuss is The Body Shop Cream Cleanser, I know I already spoke about this in my June Favourites post so I am gonna keep this paragraph short and sweet. I use this after I have taken off my make-up just to get rid of the last little bits of dirt on my face if there is any. This product leaves my skin feeling cleaner, softer and fresher. This is a very effective product, it’s hydrating and suitable for all skin types. This costs £7.50 and comes in a reasonably large bottle so it will last a long time even with every day use, totally worth the money.

 

Fair Naturally Cotton and Cucumber Facial Toner

I use this after cleansing my face, this is normally the last product I use before I call it quits when cleaning my face at night. This is a gentle toner with a very crisp and fresh scent to it which I adore. This is a very cooling toner which is nice on the skin and leaves skin feeling soft and refreshed. The best thing about this product is the smell, I’m honestly obsessed with it. This costs £4 and is worth every penny.

The Body Shop Skin Clearing Tea Tree Face Mask 

No post discussing skincare favourites is complete without talking about a face mask. This face mask is super cooling and refreshing designed to calm blemished skin. When I get spots, which I do right now, I always lean towards this mask. This won’t 100% clear anybody’s spots so don’t think it will, however it does lessen the appearance of them. This mask is super easy to rinse off and leaves skin feeling smooth and clean.

 

The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Day Cream

Last product on my list is my new favourite day cream. This is designed for sensitive and dry skin, I do  not have particularly sensitive skin but the skin on my face can get really dry at times. This moisturiser is free of fragrance, preservatives and alcohol. I use this every morning without fail before applying make up – it is SO hydrating. It is £13 which some may think is a bit pricey as you do only get a small tub but a little goes a long way with this cream. You don’t need to apply loads and loads, it’s so moisturising and nice on the skin it’s unreal.

So here is the end of my favourite affordable skincare products, most from The Body Shop which is not surprising. Maybe I should branch out and try some other brands, so if anyone has some good skin care brand/product recommendation please let me know in the comments. If you have tried any of these products or want to know more I would love to hear your thoughts as well.

I hope you all enjoyed reading this,
