Skincare Where to Spend & Where to save

I wrote a make-up post Where to Spend and Where to save not too long ago and now it's skincare's turn. Over all I would say spend on skincare but there are some tips on where you can save and whats worth the money.


Cleansers. I always find that as much as I try cheaper alternatives I always end up back with my old favourites. The Clinique Take the Day Off cleansing balm is never out of my bathroom and the Emma Hardie Amazing Face Moringa Cleansing Balm is luxury to the nth degree. For me I end up trying cheaper cleansers and either just not being impressed (see The Loreal Fine Flowers Range) or I love it and then someone tells me that it has a nasty ingredient and spoils it forever. 

Masks. Although I put Glossier in the save category in my make up post and they're not the most expensive products in the world their masks are a lot more than you'd pay in Boots or Superdrug but absolutely worth the money. These two little pots have lasted my months, maybe even 6 months, so spending £30 on these two is well well worth it. 


Treatments. This post is not sponsored by The Ordinary and actually sometimes it pains me to give them so much positive press considering recent developments but I can not deny that their products are affordable and effective. I use a wide range of their products which I mentioned in My Skincare Routine post recently and prices start really really low. If you need a spot treatment, retinol or acid then start with The Ordinary. If you start on a low budget you can work out what treatments work for you, what strengthens and then look for higher end or better formulas of what you know works for you.

For me,  I've been using them for a long time and probably will continue to do so. As I've said before I always watch my budget even when I dont have to and if its not broke, don't fix it.
