Bargain Beauty

I have written many posts on great bargain beauty bits and pieces.  There are so many great ranges and products on the market that deliver great results and don’t come with a luxury price tag.  Today I’m talking about a few recent items I have tried.

No bargain post would be complete without a mention of Penneys.  I’m not a big tan fan but I absolutely love the gradual tan from the PS range.  It is a thick and decadent cream that will leave your skin super soft and silky whilst building a gorgeous tan.  I use a small amount on my legs as I like a very light tan.  It goes on well and delivers great results.  It is a steal at €5.

I love liquid liner and Wet n Wild’s new fine liner is fantastic.  It has the same finish and lasting power as a gel liner.  It is like a felt liner and is very easy to use.

Lidl’s Cien nail polish remover is a must discussed item on many blogger lists.  It is absolutely worth the hype.  It has a pump top and removes varnish quickly including glitter which is usually a chore.  Their shaving gel is another great buy.  It is great for sensitive skin and does the job.  It leaves my legs silky smooth and I’m very happy with it.  Both items are under €2.



If you want big bouncy curls with plenty of volume then the old way of doing it is the best.  You won’t look particularly glamorous but it will be worth it.  Old fashioned rollers create the perfect look.  Section your hair into three main pieces and roll the curlers backwards.  The clips on the roller will hold them in place.  There are 12 in a pack for €1.50 in EuroGiant.


TK Maxx can be a treasure trove of beauty goodies at discount prices.  I picked up some top coat for my nails for €2 and Nip + Fab’s Bee Venom eye cream for €9.99.  I haven’t yet tried the eye cream but it is next on my list once I finish my current tube. The top coat is great and contains UV protection.


Original Source shower gels are my favourite and Dealz is the best place to get them at €1.49 each.  They all smell gorgeous and they are vegan friendly.


Finally, I’m addicted to eBay. I’m always looking for bargains. My latest purchase is a brush egg for about a euro. It is grand and handy for giving make-up brushes a good clean.

I’m delighted with the bits and pieces that I have bought and tried. I’ll have more bargains for you very soon.
