Five affordable – but utterly awesome – skin care products
SAD FACT: empty bank accounts go hand in hand with the month of January. Not only have the Christmas present purchases stripped us dry, but the fantastic New Year’s Eve festivities seem to cost us a small fortune, too.
But just because you’re lacking cash it doesn’t mean your skin needs to suffer. And when there are cheap and cheerful buys such as these sitting on beauty shelves here, there and everywhere, you’ve actually got no excuse not to treat your skin to a whole lot of lovin’…
BEST BEAUTY BARGAIN #1: LonVitalité C10 – Crystal Whitening & Moisturising Hand Mask
I adore this brand. Each of its products leave my skin glowing, and I love the idea of hydrating my dry hands in an easy way. This hand mask (read: glow-inducing gloves) contains spiffy ingredients to help eliminate age spots and nip the appearance of fine lines in the bud, all while instantly boosting your paws’ hydration levels. Having said this, the fact that it’ll cost you less than a fiver seems ludicrous, really.
BEST BEAUTY BARGAIN #2: Sukin Cream Cleanser
A winning cream cleanser is an essential for all bathroom cabinets, and this gentle gem removes make-up and surface grime while also nourishing the skin with oils of rosehip, avocado and wheat germ. Oh, and it is $9.99, so that means dry, sensitive skin can be happy and clean, without breaking the bank. Love it.
BEST BEAUTY BARGAIN #3: DermaVeen Intensive Hand Cream
Perfect for applying after the winning hand mask mentioned above, this seriously hydrating – but non-greasy – hand cream will relieve dry, chapped hands, and help heal split cuticles. It’s perfect for your handbag, desk and bedside table, and is definitely good value at only $8.99.
BEST BEAUTY BARGAIN #4: Montagne Jeunesse Cucumber Peel-Off Masque
Want to treat your face to a little pamper session, too? After cleansing, apply this peel-off goodie. Why? Well, the removal process is not only rather fun, but it also has a deliciously fresh cucumber scent and helps remove impurities, leaving you with smooth, refreshed skin. Plus, it only costs $3.95. Cool, huh?
BEST BEAUTY BARGAIN #5: you, me & everybody® Bodhi Me Hand Wash
Want to maintain those outrageously hydrated hands you’ve created using these purse-friendly products? This delightful hand wash is enriched with rosemary oil, orange oil, and vitamin E to help not only clean your hands, but also leave them feeling soft and supple, too. Yep, it won’t strip your natural oils, so your paws stay moisturised, no matter how many times you find yourself taking a trip to the bathroom. Better yet, it’ll only set you back $5.99.
