A BEAUTY ROUTINE THAT DOESN’T BREAK THE BANK
It’s absolutely possible to form a great skincare routine solely from products bought during your grocery shop. Here is a list of products under $30, that will make you look super glowy.
GARNIER HYDRA BOMB FACE MASK
Price: $5 | For $5 you get dewy, hydrated skin in 15 minutes. But the best thing about this mask is that it has no annoying flappy bits and actually fits the face properly.
CETAPHIL MOISTURISING CREAM
Price: $9.30 | Cetaphil is a brand loved by dermatologists because it’s gentle, fragrance- and paraben-free and great for sensitive skin.
THE ORDINARY SERUMS
Price: $9.90-$25 |The Ordinary is a Toronto-based skincare brand that sells ridiculously cheap, ingredient-specific skincare. We’re talking $10 for a serum.
TRILOGY ORGANIC ROSEHIP OIL
Price: $26 | Slathering an oil on your face might seem counterintuitive if you’ve spent years trying to remove the stuff from your pores, but it’s a one-way ticket to dewy skin.
NIVEA DAILY ESSENTIALS REFRESHING TONER
Price: $10 | This product removes any extra grime or make-up and tightens/closes pores. Every time I’ve tried a fancier toner, I’ve switched back to this one.
GARNIER BB CREAM
Price: $16 | A BB Cream (beauty or blemish cream) is basically a tinted moisturiser with a bit more oomph.
CETAPHIL GENTLE SKIN CLEANSER
Price: From $10.50 | This is an awesome gentle cleanser for people with dry or sensitive skin, plus it’s great for the rest of us to use in the morning.
AVENE CLEANANCE CLEANSING GEL CLEANSER
Price: $25 | Finding a cleanser that takes every scrap of make-up and grime off without drying the skin out is tricky, but this one ticks all the boxes.
It’s best for people with oily skin or those who wear a lot of make-up.
