Budget Beauty Picks

Who doesn't love a good budget beauty buy? I personally find it much more exciting finding new products on the high-street as opposed to a luxury counter. I've recently discovered some amazing gems but I thought I would show you some of my old favourites too. Get ready to make a trip to Boots!

Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Repair & Protect Conditioner | This is actually the product that inspired this blog post. I picked it up on a whim as I needed a new conditioner but it turned out to be a real winner. It feels like an expensive treatment but you use it everytime you wash your hair and it leaves it feeling beautifully soft and smooth. It's super rich but doesn't feel greasy or weight the hair down and it smells absolutely amazing! And it's only £3 - say what?! 

The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution | Obviously I couldn't talk about my favourite budget picks and not mention this guy. I've found it really hard to find something similar to this at the drugstore and I probably won't any time soon. It's loaded with acids and works as a mask to gently exfoliate and leave my skin radiant and glowing. You only need to use it two-three times a week as it's quite a concentrated product but it's such a great little gem to have in your stash! 

Barry M Satin Superslick Lip Paint | Truffle Shuffle | I used to love this lipstick but sadly it melted and wasn't useable anymore so I finally repurchased it and I honestly don't know what I did without it! It's the ultimate pink-brown nude and the formula is so creamy and pigmented. This formula is quite glossy but it can be blotted for a beautiful matte finish. 

La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo + SPF30 | I always struggle to find a good moisturiser with sun protection but LRP has nailed this one! It's part of their Effaclar range so it still helps with imperfections and marks but now has UV protection - woo! The formula is super light and it absorbs in minutes making it a great base for makeup! I can't recommend it enough! 

Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealer | C1 | You guys are probably sick of hearing me talk about this but it's become such a firm favourite! I use it under my eyes and on any imperfections and redness and it gives a beautiful smooth finish. They've recently bought out a supersize which I need to pick up asap! 

Eylure X Fleur De Force Brow Define | Medium | I'm super fussy when it comes to my brows and what I use to fill them in. So many products are either too dark, too warm or the completely wrong consistency but this is the best pencil I've found - especially for the price point! It comes with two shades which makes it really easy to get a defined brow that doesn't look one-dimensional. I've also found that the nib doesn't break off like a lot of the more expensive versions do! Win! 

Lush Lip Scrub | Honey | I don't like to spend a lot of money on lip products and when it comes to scrubs I don't think you can beat the Lush ones! The particles are just the right size to gently buff away any dry skin without being harsh or abrasive. I have the Honey scent which almost smells like vanilla candy canes - it's so good! I definitely need to get the Chocolate one next! 

The Ordinary High Adherence Silicone Primer* | The majority of my primers focus on adding glow and radiance but this is the one I opt for if my skin is looking a bit shiny or I want to blur my pores. Unlike some other silicone products, it feels silky rather than powdery and my foundation applies really smooth over top. If you want a long-wearing base you have to try this! 


What are some of your favourite budget picks?
