The £1 beauty essentials

You'll often see me talking about my favourite high end products on this blog, but beauty really needn't be expensive. There are some fantastic bargains to be had out there (check out my recent post on creating an entire skincare regime for less than £50 for example!) with prices starting from just a few pence. I've pulled together a few favourites that will set you back no more than £1 each. Yup, just a single shiny gold coin.

£1 beauty essentials
Nivea Essential Care Lip Balm - lip balm is a serious life essential as far as I'm concerned and you can guarantee there'll be at least one of these blue Nivea lip balms floating around in my bag at any one time. I love the fact they're really reasonably priced, but also aren't made up of mineral oil, so they actually help to hydrate long term.

Cuticura Hand Sanitizer - if you've got any festivals coming up, then hand sanitizer is a must-have in my books! These cute little bottles from Cuticura are just £1 each at Primark and come in lovely fruity scents that will leave you feeling clean and fresh, without the harsh alcohol scent some hand gels leave behind.

Wilko large cotton pads - cotton pads are a dull, but essential part of most beauty regimes but since discovering these ones from Wilko, I refuse to purchase the more expensive ones from Boots and Superdrug any more! These are a really generous size and are great for removing eye makeup or using with some micellar water for a first cleanse. At just 65p for 50, it's worth stocking up.

Makeup Revolution single eye shadows - there's not many makeup products you can find for £1, but I'd highly recommend picking up some solo eye shadows from Makeup Revolution next time you're near a stand. These are seriously pigmented, blend like a dream and if you didn't know the price, you'd think they were a lot more expensive!

Primark nail files - some cheap nail files can be a bit rubbish, but I've found Primark's to be pretty good quality and really budget friendly. You get three for £1 in a pack, meaning you can pop one in your handbag for emergencies and keep the others at home for a pamper session. I'm loving the summery flamingo print of these too!

Make it yourself body scrub - home made body scrubs are super simple to make and can be done for just a few pence. Mix a bit of coarse sea salt or granulated sugar with some olive oil and you've got the perfect cheap body scrub. If you want to get extra fancy, drop in a few drops of your favourite essential oil for added benefits.
