Whilst I love to make my own hair and beauty products, my awful hair and skin require some hardcore professional action before I'll even dare to leave the house. What with me being a scrimp-a-holic and all that I obviously take a frugal view when it comes to the beauty products I buy.
Here are my-
favourite best hair and beauty buys for under £5
I'm yacking on about them in this 'ere video but I've popped the details of where you can buy the bargain items below. If you can't view the embedded version do click through direct to Thrifty Telly for a look see.
Phil Smith Long Locks Conditioner - My hair has been in terrible condition lately due to my medication but this has soothed it nicely. I picked it up in Sainsbury's when it was on offer, I'm looking forward to trying out more of the Long Locks side of this range.
Witch Hazel - It makes the perfect, cheap toner. I loved it for years then stopped using it for a while in favour of other products but I'm back on it because it works better than anything else and is really refreshing.
Superdrug Aqua Hydrating Serum* - I can get horrid dry patches on my face toward the end of a foundation wearing day. I've been trying this out for three weeks and after a week or so those dry patches just stopped happening. Magic perhaps?
Boots All in One Cuticle Remover - Now, this is odd. I've been able to find this in Boots stores itself up until very recently but I can't find it online. However I have been able to find it on eBay for £1.49 (plus p&p) or 4 of them for under a fiver including p&p. Bargain for such an amazing can't-live-without-it product.
Superdrug Vitamin E Body Butter* - They bill this as 12 hour moistrisation but I beg to differ - for the positive. It lasts much longer on my dry skin.
