Today I am sharing with you some of the best affordable skincare products I’ve tried this week. Being on lockdown allows for that extra time to consider the benefits or flaws in a product. After intensive review, the following must-have skincare items have my gold standard seal of approval:
1.Paula’s Choice Defense Essential Glow Moisturiser SPF30, £10 (30ml), www.paulaschoice.co.uk
Should you be new to Paula’s Choice, I will let you in on a little secret – this brand kicks serious ass. Providing superior skincare results with pretty much every product I’ve reviewed; this moisturiser works wonders for my complexion. My skin type is dry, and I find it instantly soaks into the skin, working its magic in Nanoseconds and keeping me feeling sheer delight for the entirety of the day.
Including mineral sun protection and an array of antioxidants to thwart free radicals from environmental factors and blue light, this cream literally has you covered. Such components as argan, liquorice root extract and kiwi, mean you can kiss goodbye to aging and dull skin. Expect instead, an even complexion of radiant luminosity (hooray). At £10, this is the perfect way to see for yourself just how good it really is! (Suitable for all skin types).
2.MD3 Firm 3Neuropeptide Serum With EGF, £14.99 (Was £59.99), www.amazon.co.uk
Check out the unbelievably massive price drop on this awesome serum! The world may be going to shit, but we can bag an outstanding skincare product with the money we would have spent at Costa’s on our daily commute! See, every cloud and all that? EGF is a remarkable ingredient that usually costs a fortune to get your hands on.
For those who aren’t aware, EGF stands for epidermal growth factor and its basically a protein that heals skin. It does this by sending signals, conditioning your skin cells to behave like the youthful ones we all favour). Now, if only I could get a product that train my brain to act more mature. I do love Bioeffect EGF Serum, but it is over £100 and this one is equally as good and on offer. Duh!
3.Yardley of London English Rose Nourishing Hand Cream, £3.46 (100ml), www.amazon.co.uk
Because everyone needs this in their lives right now! What better choice than the creamy feel of this nurturing hand cream? Roses have to be my most cherished flower (for candles, perfumes and skincare), so for me – having to apply this a zillion times a day is a win-win! Combining 95% natural ingredients, being paraben-free and boasting the skin-loving ingredients (essential fatty acids and vitamin E), whilst costing next to nothing – this hand cream is too good to miss.
4.Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream with Niacinamide, £12.45, www.amazon.co.uk
You don’t need to spend crazy amounts of cash to ensure you stay looking beautiful (cue the universal sigh of relief). When stuck in a domino effect of sleepless nights, you need that extra help to keep you (at least appearing) like you’re not the walking dead. Behold the household brand, Olay. A classic that never fails to deliver fantastic results – this formula contains the key ingredients to reduce bags, puffiness, lines and wrinkles. Phewsie!
