Budget Beauty Buys for Skin, Body and Hair

A Model Recommends

This is my roundup of some great budget beauty buys for skin, body and hair. Some of these are real gems! I’ve tried to include new products and not repeat myself too much – you can see a previous “budget buys” edition here: My Cheapest Beauty Tricks. (See also the “back to school” video that I made last year.) Rather than re-word everything that I wrote to go with the video, I’m pasting in the Youtube blurb that I did! It has all of the product links and a couple of mini-reviews, so make sure you have a read. I’m popping that down below the video box.

This is a follow-on to the budget makeup video. I’m sorry there’s none of the “everything for a dollar” type stuff, none of it really made the cut! As always, I only talk about beauty products that I have tested and that I actually USE. There are thousands of products that COULD go into a video like this, but if I wouldn’t use them and then I wouldn’t recommend them to others either.

The two face creams here are lovely; the Soap & Glory Clear here is one that I have used for a couple of years now on oily days. The Vichy Normaderm is GREAT for skin that is showing signs of ageing but that is also acne-prone or tends to break out into spots and blemishes at a certain time of the month.

The gradual tanner from Dove is a nice one, I’m going to do a Gradual Tanner video soon as I rely on them a lot and don’t really like proper tanners.
The Sheer Blonde products are great. The ones that lighten are definitely not for me – I spend too much on my salon visits! – but the highlight enhancing version is great. It’s like a clarifying shampoo, kind of, that lets highlights shine through by removing product build-up.

OK, enjoy, Make sure you subscribe, too! I’m at the Notting Hill Carnival so comments may take a little time to appear and for me to answer! xxx
