Beauty Products: Top 5 under £5

I've recently picked up a couple of products over the last few months that I've been ridiculously impressed by and the best thing about it? They're all under £5!

Garnier Miscellar Cleansing Water (Combination/ Sensitive)
Since the hype of Miscellar Water’s I say I’ve tried and tested around 5 different brands and surprisingly the cheapest (per ml) is my favourite. It removes waterproof makeup ridiculously easy, cleanses the face without leaving any residue and isn’t harsh on the eyes or skin. With the Garnier Miscellar Cleansing Water I the find I only need to use 2 large square cotton pads back to back to remove all traces of makeup and bottle lasts for weeks even with daily use.

Palmers Cocoa Butter Lip Formula
There’s tons of lip moisturisers on the market but most people don’t know that a lot of them only protect your lips and don’t actually nourish them. Palmers have been a brand I’ve known and have loved for years and their lip products are a firm favourite. However recently they’ve produced tinted moisturisers which have to be a 2 in 1 saviour when it comes to moisturising your lips whilst adding some colour. The butter itself smells incredible (dark chocolate) and leaves your lips feeling smooth and moisturising, it is non sticky and lasts a long time without being tacky or becoming dry and grainy.  

N Spa Coconut Shower Scrub
This could potentially be the best smelling body scrub of all time. The scent is like freshly cut coconut with a milky sweet undertone of coconut milk. The scrub itself is packed with vitamins A, E and B5 to nourish whilst passion fruit seeds buff away dull skin. The contents of the scrub have a grainy like texture that isn’t too harsh on the skin but has just enough grit to get to work on dead skin cells. As for the longevity, this has been used nearly every day in my shower for the last 2 weeks and I'd say I haven't even reached 1/4 yet as a small amount goes a long way.

Superdrug Antibacterial Strawberry & Raspberry Hand Gel
I always carry around an antibacterial hand sanitiser for those times when your hands are feeling a little grubby or you’ve reached a public toilet and there’s no soap! However my usual ones where just your average run of the market with that strong alcoholic scent that felt a little too harsh on the skin. There are a couple of brands that have some scented products but they’re a little too pricey for how small they were. I spotted this one in my local Superdrug and the scent is amazing - A fresh tangy mix of raspberry and strawberry that leaves your hands feeling squeaky clean without any sticky residue.  

Maybelline Colour Tattoo – And On Bronze
There was a huge hype about these products a while back and I never bought into it. However when I took advantage of the infamous 3 for 2 in Boots I picked one up to try out and I’ve been using this shade nearly every day to add a summery shimmer to my eyes.  The texture is creamy and can be smoothed onto the eyes and blends in beautifully using your fingers. It has buildable coverage and the product itself doesn’t crease but does fade ever so slightly after 9 hours which I think is pretty impressive for an eye product!
