They say to save the best for last, and I tried to do that with this post, which is the last one in my Skincare Week on the blog! I decided to put together a list of my favourite skincare buys which you can get from your local drugstore, and they're all under 10€! I tried to make it as international-friendly as possible, so we have some European drugstore goodies as well as Boots favourites. Let's see what I chose.
Let's start off with Yves Rocher. It was hard to choose one favourite from the brand, because I used to use an entire line of their products for oily skin, but they recently revamped it and I haven't tried any of the new bits. So we have the Chamomile Cleansing Gel, which costs around 6€ in Slovenia. This is an amazing gel, you can even remove makeup with it, or just use it for cleansing your face.
Next, a Balea favourite - you knew it was coming, I like me a little bit of Balea (or a humongous amount, whatevs). Aqua Serum is an amazing moisturizer for the summertime and throughout the year as well. Despite being very light, it provides a lot of moisture to my skin and sinks in very fast. You can use it under makeup as well. Price is around 3-4€ - awesome!
A scrub is also an important part of my routine, and I really like the Burt's Bees Deep Pore Scrub. The price for it is around 6€. It's Peach & Willowbark by the way, and it's quite a harsh scrub. I wouldn't recommend it for sensitive skin, but for my oily & problematic complexion, it's great. Use it once a week, not too much. I also like it for my body!
Dr. Scheller's First Wrinkles Reducing Care is also another one I like to use under my makeup. It's light and has a nice scent, sinks in quickly, and is supposed to help wrinkles as well. I don't really have them, but it's a good moisturizer for the price. I'd also like to recommend their Face Wash with Pomegranate, which costs 6€, but I couldn't find it for the photo!
Neutrogena makes this great face wash which you can also use as a mask. I really like it as a mask, because it draws out impurities very well (plus I like looking like a ghost). It's the Visibly Clear 2-in-1 Wash and Mask. It costs around 6€ and does a great job, it's amazing for problematic skin which I definitely have.
Weleda Skin Food has been mentioned a few times this week, so I don't think I need to ramble about it too much. It's a very potent natural moisturizer with a strong herbal scent which is great for dry patches. Price is around 9€.
Finally, we have a Boots item - the Una Brennan Superfacialist Rose Hydrate Facial Makeover Oil. I really like this for cleansing and even removing makeup, but I haven't tried it overnight as of yet. I really have to do! It has a very strong rose scent and feels quite pleasant on the face. This might be an euro or two over 10€, but it's often on offer, so that's my justification for including it.
That's it! I'd love to include a few more items, but I will try to do more budget friendly posts in the future.
What is your favourite budget skincare item?
