This post is kind of what it says on the tin! In some beauty blogging circles, it’s easy to lose the value of money and find yourself wanting to spend a silly amount. It’s nice to treat ourselves every so often (because we’re worth it!) but sometimes we just want high quality results for very few pennies… Enter this little collection!
There are some things that you really do not need to splash out on such as dry shampoo, shower gels and cream cleansers. Boots and Superdrug sell really good options and I wouldn’t even think of looking for high end versions because, quite simply, what’s the point?!
Here are ten purchases under a fiver (including a freebie!) which I have repurchased or would definitely repurchase again – nice midweek, guilt free treats for even the tightest budget!
