The Best of the Budget Buys

After stowing away a drawer full of thumbsed-up Boots bought beauty bounty for my ‘Budget Buy’ category, I thought I’d just put it all out there and tie it up instead with one big fat YouTube bow. The ‘Best of the Drugstore’ if you will, some newly acquired, others I’ve been harbouring a love affair with for sometime – I’m telling you I went through more tubes of the Rimmel Sunshimmer Instant Tan than I did tins of baked beans while I was at Uni. But there’s a good smorgasbord of products in there all under the tenner marker. Skincare is skimmed over (watch the video, for that ramble), but there’s plenty of makeup offerings and a haircare one too, to weigh up.

And if anyone ever spots me within a one mile radius of a Boots, send me in the opposite direction. It’s a dangerous place.

    I love the blush! I really like the John Frieda hair products but I think the hair products from organix work really well, you should try them 🙂


  • Beauty Angel

    I live within 2 minutes of Boots, I seriously wish they would bar me! I spent €50 today because my coupons were expiring today and of course I MUST use them. It’s saving money really with them, yeah right!

  • Katie

    I used those John Freida Shampoos for a long time, they were the best drugstore products I had ever found for my hair!

  • Amber Hunter

    I love the color tattoo’s but they are always sold out of the shades I want! (Also, I love the Grace Coddington book it was so interesting!)
