The Cutest Lip Crayons
Lip crayons are a wonderful invention. Not only are they simple to use, stay on for ages and suit any age group, they're perfect for popping into a pocket or tiny clutchbag - especially if they're cute mini lip crayons like this one from Essence.
This is part of a new collection, priced just £1.99 (wilko.com) which come in four shades, including this perfect pink one, pictured.
If you've always wanted to be one of those ladies who can apply lipstick without a mirror, here's your chance - ...
Super Duper Multi-Tasker!
Sprays have started to become popular again - we seem to be moving away from thick, rich facial products and favouring more lightweight formulas that can be easily and quickly applied.
This is one such spritzer that we're excited about. In May, Superdrug launches B. Confident Hyaluronic Acid Facial Spritz, £7.99. It's a quick spray of lots of good stuff that does several jobs at once.
Despite its rather clinical name, this is a lovely, fresh product that gives skin an instant boost. As ...
£1 Shampoo Is A True Bargain
If you gather all your hair products together and add up the cost, you'd be shocked - shampoos, conditioners and styling products can run into hundreds of pounds. So if you can make any savings, it's well worth it.
Creightons has always been a favourite of ours - it's great quality, comes in big tubes that last for ages and the prices are amazing. The brand has just relaunched its collections, and there are now five different ranges - with all shampoos and conditioners £1 each (Tesco and ...
Cute Face Masks For Every Skin Need
Single-use face masks are a great idea. Skin's needs change, so you can often find yourself with three or four face masks on the go ... one for hydrating, one for calming, one for de-clogging and one for boosting radiance.
So, if you can buy a few at a time, for different needs, and use them as you need them, that's the way to go.
These lovely little masks from Nugg are just £3.29 (selfridges.com), and come in seven different formulas, so there will definitely be one to suit what's going ...
New Bhs Own-Brand Beauty
As big believers in supermarket beauty, department store own-brands are usually one step up - and often the price reflects that.
But the new range from Bhs is amazingly well-priced, and it's a really nice collection.
Live Love London includes cosmetics, haircare and bath and body products, ranging from a bargain £2 to £10, so all ranges are affordable.
We love this Light & Blush Palette, £9 (stores nationwide) which is similar to some Nars palettes, with six shades to create a ...
Time To Tan …
We’re not quite out of winter woollies yet, but there may be times when you feel like baring your legs this spring. And the first self-tan of the year can be difficult to get right.
All those months of having legs encased in tights or trousers and arms covered with long sleeves means you’re starting with a blank canvas to work on. Skin is pale and perhaps dehydrated, and if you apply too much tan, or the shade is too dark, it can become blotchy and patchy, or just too orange.
Our tip ...
Little Pot of Healthy Glow!
We love Bourjois - and we especially love their Little Round Pot Blushes, £7.99 (Boots). They last forever, and the colours are perfect.
So we're delighted with the new shades, launching on Wednesday. Our blonde tester has been using Corail Tentation, a coral shade that's makes the complexion look like it's been outside in the fresh air for a healthy walk, and it's the most natural shade we've seen for ages.
Fraicheur De Rose is more of a definite pink, that looks pretty on darker ...
Free Kenzo Clutch Bag
Never ones to pass on a free gift, we love this gesture from The Perfume Shop. It's the best of the bunch of their spring free gifts with purchase - and we think it's a cracker.
With any purchase of Flower by Kenzo, 50ml or larger, from £60 (theperfumeshop.com) from this week, you'll get this classy Kenzo clutch bag.
It's one of those little treats you probably wouldn't buy for yourself, but a clutch bag is really handy. The wrist strap means you have both hands free for a glass of ...
Instant Glow In A Bottle
It's that time of year when you notice how much winter has taken its toll on your skin. When the sun starts to peep through suddenly any greyness or flatness in the complexion makes your whole face look tired and drawn.
We've found the answer ... this brilliant new little bottle of magic from GOSH. Lumi Drops, £7.99 (Superdrug) give the skin instant radiance, and a natural looking healthy glow.
It comes in three shades - the one pictured is Vanilla, which is great for paler complexions - ...
Look Out For Baby Balmi …
We at bargainbeautyblogger are big fans of Balmi, a simple yet ingenius lip balm that is forever in our handbags and pockets. Imagine our delight when we discovered Baby Balmi - a cuter than cute smaller version of the fab balm.
They're just £2 (Primark) and currently come in two flavours - Fresh Mint and Summer Berries, which are perfect for spring.
If you're not familiar with Balmi, it's loveliness lies in its shape - simply purse your lips and the pyramid shape will moisture both lips ...
£1.99 Body Spray Is A Classic
Impulse Body Spray is a bit overlooked these days. It's great value, a handy size for popping into your handbag and the scent isn't too strong, so you can top it up during the day without running the risk of it being overpowering.
This new scent, which launches today, comes in a funky can and is scented with the spring smells of bergamot, frozen lemon and bitter orange. Impulse Why Not? £1.99 (Superdrug) is a limited edition, so keep an eye out for new launches from this iconic brand.
New Vintage Range – All Under £5
On bargainbeautyblogger we promise to bring you the newest and best beauty bargains around. Every day, we'll be featuring a new bargain beauty launch, an affordable little treat for yourself or a well-priced gift.
Today, we love this new range from home décor and accessories designer Gisela Graham has got us clearing a space on our bathroom shelves.
The collection includes two fragrance choices - Spring Blossom and Summer Meadow - with hand wash, body wash and bath foam. The packaging is ...
They're taking the young teenagers' market by storm ... but we all love an Emoji, don't we! These lip balms made us smile, so we look forward to having them in our handbag to help keep our lips soft - especially since they're just £2.99 each from Superdrug, launching next month.
Just keep them away from any teenagers or little girls you may know, or you may find they disappear!
Ease The January Blues …
So this is the time of year when we all get fit and give up doing all the things that we know are bad for us ... right?!
Even if you're not on a health kick, January is a good time to be kind to yourself and your body. The cold, wind and rain play havoc with skin, and as a result, it needs some extra care.
Ragdale Spa have launched this lovely new range specifically aimed at making the skin look and feel better. All priced under £10, Active Spa is soothing and comforting, and best of ...
Tasty New Hand Gels for £1.25
Handwashes can feel like a treat. They're lovely to have in your bathroom, and if they smell delicious, they can actually lift your mood. Really. Wash your hands with something exotic and breathe in the scent afterwards by cupping your hands together - it's a definite spirit-lifter.
But if you can't justify spending a small fortune on a designer hand gel, try these new I Love ... Cleansing Hand Gels. At £1.25 each (Superdrug), they're a serious bargain.
They come in Strawberries and ...
