70 Budget Beauty Buys For Under £5
Though it's easy to spend a fortune on beauty products without really thinking about it, you don't always have to splash out to look great. There are loads of really reliable products in your nearest Boots or Superdrug that'll do the job on a tight budget. Some beauty cupboard basics — like nail polish remover — don't really vary much whether you spend £2 or £20. Other cut-price substitutions might vary more, but it's simply a case of finding the cheaper brands that work for you. If you're looking to reduce your beauty budget and don't know where to start, begin with products that need replacing frequently (like mascara) or those that you wash off immediately (like shower gel and shampoo) and reserve your pennies for better-quality moisturiser and foundation. Budget beauty is also the perfect way to experiment with new fads, like bright eye shadow or glitter nail polish, before graduating to higher-quality products once you've worked out if the look is right for you. To help you on your way, we've picked 70 of our favourite reliable beauty buys for £5 and under, including everything from intensive conditioners to brow-shaping kits.
