I was told on another thread about wilko toner water, it is fabulous, not drying at all. 95p. Exfoliating gloves from poundland/poundworld(the nearest town has both). body shop vanilla brulee or papaya body butter, I only buy these when there is a super duper sale on and the price goes down to about £4.80, with free delivery when you spend ten pounds. Superdug self heating exfoliating face masks are really good and are 99p. I have 2 teen dds so we get through a lot of beauty bits and bobs.
Garnier Micellar Water. It comes in a huge 400ml bottle which lasts me 3 months and is always on offer somewhere. The last bottle I bought was £2.66 from Tesco, but if you have a Savers near you it's £2.99 all the time. Even full price its £4.50 and it's the best thing I've ever used on my skin - I've had spots and blocked pores all my life but my skin has cleared right up since I started using it.
Tressemme shampoos and conditioners - 900ml bottles which last forever and again, are always on offer for a couple of quid, bit still under a fiver full price. My hair's never looked or felt better.
If you have a Lidl near you their 79p handcreams are fabulous, especially the anti-ageing one.
Pound shops are AMAZING for makeup - I've had Hard Candy, Sally Hansen, OPI, Calvin Klein, Revlon, Maybelline, L'oreal etc stuff from there. Also Nice n'Easy hair dye - I bought 24 of my favourite shade which worked out the same price as 3 packs from Boots!
Boots Natural Collection makeup - their lash lengthening mascara and eye-shadow in Willow have been staples of mine for years, and all their products are £1.99. Often on 3 for £5 or three for two, too.
Thanks for your replies everyone. I've made a note of all of them and will look at them individually as and when I need things. I'm particularly interested in the Superdrug Naturally Radiant range as a couple of you have recommended that.
