Skincare on a Budget - 5 Fantastic Hydrators!

skincare products featuring the ordinary marine hyaluronics, squalane, hada labo premium lotion, neutrogena hydra boost, simply pure serum

Not everyone has the option to invest in high-end skincare...

For me, being on a budget means I’m always on the hunt for cheaper alternatives that keeps my skin hydrated and happy!

Today, I'm bringing you five brilliant budget hydrators that not only provide ingredients that actually work, they can also be incorporated anytime and in my experience have played nicely layered under anything :) With more and more of us choosing to spend more wisely, these would also make great products to look out for during a low-buy month.

I love keeping a stash on hand for either pairing under more active formulas or on their own when giving my skin the day off.

Review: Payot Blue Techni Liss - protecting skin from blue light technology

Parisian skincare Payot is a luxury brand I recently became reacquainted with after many, many years, when their Hydra 24+ Baume En-Mask* landed on my doorstep a few months ago for a review. It soon turned into one I’d enjoy and use regularly. So, I was pretty excited when I was given the opportunity to try out this latest line up - Blue Techni Liss – which is all about protecting our skins from the effects of blue light technology.

Although more research needs to be done, it’s something more and more brands are beginning to share awareness due to the ageing and pigmentation effects blue light can have on the skin.

Quick Reviews on Skin Care Buys From K-Beauty.

Korean skincare products from brands Hada Labo, Heimish, Innisfree, J.One

(Some products were gifted*)

I’ve been a fan of K-beauty for quite some time now because their skincare approach focuses on gentle hydration to achieve a healthy glow what is known as "glass skin." Using high quality ingredients and technology far more advanced and cheaper than the western world (which is rumoured to be ahead by as much as 12 years!

Now let’s be real, I know at the age of 47, my days of achieving glass skin has long gone, lol! In fact, I don’t think my skin ever had the luck of the draw to begin with. But what I have to agree with is since using the slightest drop of anything from that side of the world has definitely helped put some  radiance back into my skin - even at my age.

So, it wasn’t long before I wanted to delve in more of what Korean Beauty had to offer, and while I was at it, I thought I’d throw in a cult status from Japan too! I decided it was high time I experienced my first shop with big Asian website, Yes Style, which as British Beauty Blogger Jane rightly pointed out is like cat nip! They've always got some promotion going on featuring a ton of offers from big brands from South Korea and Japan as well as few bits and pieces from the U.S such as e.l.f. Apart from offering beauty products they also sell accessories, homeware and even clothing (post not sponsored, by the way.)

BH Cosmetics – Desert Oasis Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette - Review & Swatches

Bh Cosmetics Desert Oasis Eyeshadow and Highlighter Palette

Did I really need a new one? No, of course, I didn’t. But for some strange reason, the beginning of a new year sees me set my sights on a new palette in some form to take with me on my Summer hols. Knowing I had enough palettes to open up a small shop, I decided I wasn’t going to pay very much for this latest one. I had been eyeing up this palette for months after seeing Youtuber, Tati Westbrook raving about it. So, I decided the Desert Oasis Eyeshadow & Highlighter palette from B.H Cosmetics would hopefully be the one I’d be packing as it really does have a tropical vibe to it! Then ABH released Riviera! Lol!
