High street heroes: skincare

Finding the right skincare can sometimes be a bit tricky, and while I will freely admit to having been a bit of a high-end obsessive for a while, there are some truly great products on the high street. These are a few of my current favourites that not only perform amazingly well, they also won’t break the bank.

High street hero skincare products

Kiko Cleansing Eyes and Lips – a bi-phase makeup remover, this needs to be shaken together before use to activate the formula. A great dupe for Lancome’s iconic Bi-Facil, it removes all traces of eye makeup and even works well on waterproof mascara. I’m on my third bottle and I can’t see myself shifting to another brand any time soon! £5.90 for 125ml

Good Things Manuka Honey Daily Moisturiser* – Infused with manuka honey, Royal Jelly and bee venom, Good Things provides a budget friendly option for anyone who has wanted to test out the bee venom skincare rage, without the crazy price tags. This is a lightweight moisturiser that sinks into skin really quickly, but leaves it feeling hydrated throughout the day. It’s also free from parabens, mineral oil, and SLS. If you’re allergic to bee stings, you will need to avoid this one as it contains real bee venom, but otherwise, it should be suitable for most skin types. £7.99 for 100ml

B. Pure Micellar Water – Micellar waters are super popular at the moment and provide a quick and easy way to remove makeup and surface level dirt from the skin. Superdrug own brand B.’s micellar water is extremely gentle but really effective. I like to use mine as a first cleanse – removing my foundation before following up with a hot cloth cleanser afterwards. It’s scent free, and at £4.99 for 150ml is a bit of a bargain.

Amie New Leaf Skin Exfoliating Polish – this is one of my favourite ever exfoliators. Not only does it have the most amazing mango smell, but it’s also quite gentle and yet very effective at removing dead skin cells. I tend to use this once or twice a week, massaging gently into damp skin, before rinsing off. It costs less than a fiver, so why not add one to your shopping basket next time you’re in Waitrose?
