Beauty on a budget!! my dear!
Ok so if you are anything like me you are probably having up and down days at the moment; you have probably gained a couple of pounds, you're probably drinking more than you should, and having perfect skin is perhaps the last thing on your mind!
You have more significant issues like bills and wondering where your next rent/mortgage payment might come from. So with all that in mind, I decided to write my first article on how you can have a pamper night without having to dig into your Monzo savings pot.
When the going gets tough, our budgets have to get tougher, which is hard - especially if you're anything like me, this girl likes her luxury items!!! …and I am unapologetic about it as there is nothing wrong with liking nice things.
I like my skincare like I like my men!!!! expensive and good to look at
But Until Covid 19 disappears, we should be looking for the best bargains we can find. Although we all love Chanel luxury face cream - these can simply be added to our Christmas list and mailed straight to our rich aunt…In the meantime, consider me the cheaper version of a fairy godmother here and ready to gift you with perfect skin for under a fiver (£5)….Now if you are a Waitrose or Marks and Spencer's snob like me, you likely don't want to be told to get your ass to Aldi as you more than likely quite like the older lady at the checkout packing your organic goods neatly and carefully into a nice eco/vegan/universe friendly straw bag!
But we are living through a crisis and these are tough times my dear; now is not the time to be picky, and Aldi ain't too bad, the food is actually lovely. Also they do very nice candles that actually smell exactly like a very well known luxury brand ( if you do go, try not to get barred for placing their entire candle box in your trolley!!!). As I think they cost £3 instead of the luxury brands 50 something pounds…but better than the candles, the skincare is cheap as chips!
Now I cannot promise you that your skin is going to be like a Victoria Secret’s supermodel, I would be lying… you don't get that for a fiver, despite what the adverts may say! But if you need a pamper night, I promise that your skin will feel smooth and hydrated. I tried it, and my boyfriend spent the entire night stroking my face and pinching my cheeks (face cheeks of course!) Take the time to pamper yourselves my loves, and get on YouTube to listen to some mindfulness. If you don't take care of you, everything else falls apart, so make sure you prioritise yourself. I have a gang of kids that take up all of my attention, I do everything for them. Still, If I don't have mummy time then they don't get the best version of me; they get a woman hanging on by a teeny weeny tiny thread, so as well as your skin my loves, your mental health is essential!
Healthy mind EQUALS healthy skin and all that jazz…
Below you have the cleanser, The Lacura serum and The golden clay mask :) (Aldi bargains)
Ciao for now!
