Beauty on a Budget - July

July 30, 2015

Happy Thursday Ladies!

Todays blog post is going to be the start of monthly posts where I am going to discuss beauty and skin products that are at a reasonable cost and have good results! (Beauty on a Budget)

There are a huge amount of products out there nowadays and its hard for one to know which one is the best. To know that the most expsensive product isnt always the best and the cheapest one isnt always the worst.

My cupboard is full of a mixture of everything. But the main thing for me, is getting the point accross of the importance of ingredients in a product. Thats what makes the biggest difference between products.

So heres the first of my Beauty on a Budget for July:

Priceline had 40% off skincare for 2 days only and I went in to pick up a few things.(As if Im not going back to Ireland in a few weeks and my case isnt already overweight..What harm!) 

1. Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse body Oil. 

This has become a cult beauty product.  Its designed for your face, body & hair. It smells delicious. I had never used this before but I heard about it and wanted to try it. Its usually quite pricey. But with the 40% off I got it for $15 / €10 

It has vitamin E, no perservatives and 6 natural plant oils which are really nourishing for the skin. It has a gorgeous bronze to enhance a glow! There are many ways to use this dry oil and I will do a seperate post on it so keep an eye out.

2. La Roche Posay Cicaplast Baume B5.

This is an amazing soothing balm for irriated skin. I have very irriated skin on the back of my arms and little spots show up. Its a skin condition called Keratosis Pilaris. Its so awful! Iv had it my whole life- but certain factors make it worse. This cream is the only cream I have ever seen results with it. 

Its got 5% vitamin B in it which is very healing and moisturising to the skin and can penetrate down to the lower layers in the skin. Its designed for irritated skins such as sensitive and dermatitis.
Approx €12/$18

3. Rimmel Natural Bronzer

Iv been using this product since I was 12 years old I say! Its so affordable and so good. It lasts ages (if you dont drop it) and I just find it goes on so well and suits my skintone.

I got the 025 Sun Glow which is Matt, no shimmer.
Its waterproof and has spf15 (still need a spf under it tho if in the sun!)
Approx $15.95|€10

4. Max Factor False lash Effect Mascara

I usually wear Benefit's mascara but a friend reccomened this one and so far so good.
Approx $25|€20
