With the heat turning up, trying to look and feel our best while also trying not to melt on the floor can be tricky! It’s also that time of year where festivals and events are in full swing, which means money in other areas can be tight. If you’re looking to refresh and pamper yourself on a budget, then look no further. I’ve compiled a list of my top beauty buys – all of which are under £5 each and all can be found in Superdrug who offer student discount.
Some of my finds I have tried and tested, others are on my wish list.
Charcoal toothpaste 75ml – £2.99
This is a product I currently use and I love it! There are a lot of products on the market that claim to whiten your teeth and while I haven’t used many, this is a good and inexpensive option. I have noticed a difference in the brightness of my teeth and it’s perfect for me as I regularly drink coffee and fear the dreaded stains that could cause. This toothpaste is available in two products –
one of which is designed for sensitive teeth.
Barry M Under the Sea Nail Paint – £3.99
I’m a big fan of keeping my nails colourful, especially during the summer months when vibrancy is a must! Barry M have released a new line of nail paints called ‘Under the Sea’ and it brings all the mermaid vibes. I have yet to try it but I’ve read the final colour depends on the base colour you choose.
e.l.f. Jelly Pop Juicy Gloss, Superdrug – £5.00
Another one on my wishlist is this gloss, available in Cherry or Apricot and exclusive to Superdrug. This product looks ideal for keeping your lips hydrated in the heat and it claims to be non-sticky which is a bonus! Jeffree Star even rates it 5*!
Garnier Moisture Bomb Chamomile Hydrating Face Sheet mask
– Currently on offer £1.99 (usually £2.99)
I love a good face mask and this is one I recently tried. It’s super hydrating and really easy to apply. The scent is lovely and I instantly felt refreshed and rejuvenated after use. If you suffer with dry skin or just want a boost, this is an ideal and affordable option.
