I am so intrigued to share my drugstore beauty underdogs with you guys. Usually we all get lured by those fancy packaging, advertisement and more importantly, clever placing of skincare and cosmetics products in departmental stores. But there are tons of goodies in drugstores, which can do decent job for the money and mostly get ignored because they are available at the friction of price.
I am sure we all must have something in our stashes which are our cult products. Keep reading to check out what I have to share.
No7 Precision lips pencil in Nude
I adore this product to death. A real cult product and essential of my daily makeup routine. The perfect nude colour, neither too pink, nor too pale but gets very little attention. I mostly use the said product as an eye brightener. It gives the most au naturel look. Colour comparison was done against Rimmel scandaleyes waterproof kohl pencil although they are completely different products.
Price: £ 6.75
No7 Crème Touch Face Powder in Candlelight
I am on second pan of this cult beauty. A creamy texture powder, very fine milled which gives a nice subtle, dewy finish. No7 categorize this under the foundations because it gives a sheer coverage as well.
On those days when really don’t want to put anything on my face, I apply this powder with puff or brush on well moisturised skin for clearer completion.
Price: £ 8.50
If purchased with £3 off coupon, then it's a real steal.
Avene Cleanance K crème gel
This product changed my life. I got a sample of it initially. I used it for three days and saw the result instantly. It definitely has a wow factor. Specially design for oily and blemish prone skin, which cleanses the clogged pores thereby encouraging the elimination of spots, blackheads and blemishes. It has AHA’s and BHA’s which clear out and exfoliates dead skin in a very gentle manner, revealing fresher skin underneath.
It has oil-absorbing microcapsules which keeps skin matte all day long. It is perfect moisturiser for winter season when I get some dry patches on my cheeks and flaky skin at my T-zone area. Only problem is, it has very strong chemically smell which can put off some users at once but once you apply it, the smell just disappear.
Price: £ 11
I was really amazed by the quality and results I got from these masks. So easy on pocket, so tough on targets. And they smell so delicious. My favourite from the bunch are deep cleansing fruit mask and superfruit exfoliating mask. You can get these masks in tubes as well but I find the sachet more convenient and they give me the freedom to try different masks without sticking to same masks for ages. These sachets can easily give two to three applications of masks. I will suggest emptying the content in clean container to save it from wasting.
Price: £ 1 each
