I'm back again with my budget finds... and yes, everything you see above is under £3! As always this just goes to show that you don't need to spend a small fortune for good quality products. Whether it's checking out the makeup section in Poundworld or snapping up half price products there are always bargains to be had - fact!
So here are my bargainous beauty must-haves this week...
Vaseline Lip Therapy Cocoa Butter
On Offer £1.23 (RRP still cheap at £2-ish) - Tesco in-store
Over the years I've gone through countless Vaseline tins but for the past year other lip balms have taken over and I forgot about the little silver tins of Vaseline. That is until they created a new retro look to the tins and I realised they did a Cocoa Butter scent. This is pretty damn yummy and a great lip balm to throw in your bag for cold autumn/winter days.
Rimmel Apocolips Lip Lacquer
£1 each (RRP ££6.49) - Poundworld in-store
I think I've possibly been the slowest beauty blogger in trying these but at £6.50 each I just wasn't so sure I needed them. What was until I picked up one on offer in Tesco and then later discovered they're currently in Poundworld and proceeded to pretty much snapped up the entire range. At £1 it's a no-brainer and there are some great berry shades perfect for this time of year.
Natural Collection Lipstick in Raspberry
£1.99 - Boots in-store
This was a lipstick that was flagged up to me by a post from Miss Budget Beauty and I'm very glad it was as Natural Collection is a brand I tend to walk past in Boots as the packaging is pretty bland and nothing ever jumps out at me. However Raspberry is actually a very nice lipstick that I've been wearing quite a lot of recently. The shade I'm sure will pretty much suit everyone, is fairly autumnal and comfortable on the lips. It's a thumbs up from me.
L'Oreal Ever Riche Nourishing & Taming Shampoo
£2.99 (half price on entire range RRP £6) - Tesco Direct here or in-store
I try not to babble on about avoiding SLS's in shampoo for the fear of boring everyone but I really honestly believe it's the best switch you can do for your scalp and hair. I've tried countless SLS free ones now in an attempt to find a good foamer-upper (yup.. that is a word) and one that isn't moisture sapping and discovered my holy grail shampoo in the process! This wonderfully white creamy shampoo works wonders on dried out hair that needs, well nourishing and taming, and regardless of if you avoid sulphates or not it's a pretty damn good shampoo. Plus it smells like an Estee Lauder fragrance! Super cheap at the moment so worth giving a go if you haven't already.
Herbal Essences Breakage Defender Intensive Mask
£1 (RRP £3.99) - Poundworld in-store
I've been using the Herbal Essences hair masks for a long as I can remember (though I can't stand their chemical laden shampoos) as they do the job and only require a minute on the hair before washing off. So last week when I saw this on the shelves on Poundworld I was pretty pleased and stocked up on a few. I like all the different ones for different hair types but I especially like this as you can apply it from root to tip... great if you are prone to breakages near the roots and end up with a halo of frizz - like me! So far so good with this one... especially as it's rivalling my favourite 3 Minutes Conditioner from Aussie at the moment. The mask also comes with a fruity mango and coconut scent that is pretty delicious.
