Drugstore Favourites!

These are a handful of products, that are mostly available in Boots stores, which I love! I'm a huge believer in affordable products, as not all need to be high end, to be good! Anyway, I have a selection of moisturisers, that I switch between, depending on the day, my mood, what I feel like, etc. Some of these I have tended to forget to use, others are newly acquired ones. You'll be safe to know these are all drugstore products, that I genuinely use.
L-R: Dove Visible Effects Nourishing Body Lotion, ASDA Skin System Young Skin Matt Finish Moisturiser, Simple Kind To Skin Hydrating Light Moisturiser & Clean & Clear Shine Control Daily Facial Moisturiser
L-R: Nivea Pearl & Beauty Deodorant, Dove Visible Effects Nourishing Hand Cream, Bio-Oil, V05 Miracle Concentrate Elixir with Argon Oil & Nivea Soothe & Protect Lip Care
 I firstly received the Dove Moisturiser as a set for Christmas, & I think its wonderful! It applies lovely to your skin, without it feeling sticky. Same goes for the matching hand cream. I rarely use hand cream, usually because I don't find the need for it, its an extra thing I could go without & they tend to leave a residue on your hands that quite frankly, annoys me. However, these leave your skin moisturised, from when I bathe at night, till the next night.

As for the face moisturisers, it depends on what my skin is feeling like when I wake up. Some mornings, my skin is still moisturised from the night before's night cream, so I don;t feel the need to re-moisturise. However, some mornings, I feel I need an extra injection of moisture, which also helps my foundation blend beautifully. I bought the ASDA Matt one a while back, just on a whim as I saw it. I like to use this if I just want to apply a moisturiser during the day, as it gives a matte finish, rather than the glossy, wet looking one, as some do, if you don't intend on applying make up.
I received the Simple one as a set for Christmas, again. I would definitely repurchase this. I love all of the Simple products, as they are so gentle. This hydrates your skin, perfectly, making your foundation a dream to work with.
Lastly, is the Clean & Clear one, which again, I bought on a whim. I love trying new, inexpensive products, as if they do nothing for you, you've not wasted a huge sum of money, which is great if you suffer from sensitive, break out prone skin. This one is lovely & light. I used to use this before the Simple one, although this is just as good.

Nivea! Cannot go wrong with this brand! I've had this deodrant before, so I decided to re-purchase. When it comes to deodorants, I'm up for anything new. As long as they do the job! I'm unsure whether this does release pearl extracts, although, the concept makes me feel very glamorous, so that's good enough for me!

Bio-Oil. We've all heard of it. I've had mine for a while, only remembering I owned it. I'm hopefully going to start keeping this in my skin care regime, & pray it does wonders! This is a product that's you need time & patience for results. The actual product sinks into your skin, leaving it feel very soft, & not sticky. You can also add a few drops of this to your bath, which I do need to try!

The V05 Miracle Concentrate Oil is a new product of mine, which I recently bought in a blog sale. I'm planning on doing a review if anyone is interested? I was unsure of what this would so for me. So far, I love this. I like to sue this on my damp hair, through the ends, & blow dry. This leaves my hair silky soft & manageable. Its a lovely product to instantly add moisture!

Lastly, Nivea's Soothe & Protect Lip Care. I keep this on my bed side table & apply at night when my lips aren't feeling their best. I wouldn't definitely re-purchase this, especially since I'm running out! This coats your lips lovely, not irritable, as some lip products make me feel like I just want to wipe it off. By morning, my lips are as good as new. Also this contains SPF 15, which is always a bonus!

So, there you have it. A selection of my drugstore favourites. They are all budget friendly, & importantly, do the job!
I hope you enjoyed this little post!
