I've always loved skincare, and I do love to invest, but that's not always necessary as there are so many great picks for a lower price. Over the years I've tried a lot of inexpensive skincare brands and I've found some absolute gems which I can't wait to share. Whether you're looking for some cheaper bits and bobs, or you're starting off building your skincare collection, I hope you can take something away from this post. I'm aware that some of these are around the £15/£20 mark, but that's still a lot cheaper than some skincare products from higher end brands, so I still wanted to include them...

The Body Shop Chamomile Cleansing Balm, £10: I've used this stuff for a couple of years now, and I don't think I'll ever use a high-end makeup remover since discovering this. If you suffer with dry skin, or you like something a bit more luxurious to take your makeup off with, this is lovely. It's super gentle, yet removes every trace of makeup.

Liz Earle Cleanse and Polish, £14: This is that mid-way point between cheap and expensive, but it's about £10 cheaper than some other cleansers in my stash so I thought I would include it. This is the perfect cleanser for any situation, it's super creamy, hydrating and also removes excess makeup. I love to use this in the mornings, rinse it off with a warm cloth, and my skin feels amazing and nourished.

LUSH Tea Tree Water, £8.50: I love this stuff and I really need to purchase a new bottle! If you're looking for a spray/toning product which is going to help reduce irritation and redness, this is so so good, I can't recommend it enough. The tea tree helps to keep the skin clear and refreshed by keeping away bacteria. I use this morning and night and it's the perfect skin pick-me-up.

Pixi Hydrating Mist, £18: This is another in-between price wise, but I adore this product and it definitely wont have you out of pocket. If you suffer with dry/dehydrated skin, this is something you need in your collection. I'll spray this onto my skin after cleansing and pat it in to ensure it's giving my skin all the benefits and hydration it can possibly soak up!

LUSH Oatifix Mask, £6.95: LUSH have some great natural masks which are good enough to eat. My favourite from their collection is Oatifix which is geared to hydrated and plump the skin, whilst the oats help to exfoliate. Again, in the winter this is something I'm constantly reaching for to make sure my skin is always at it's best.

Eucerin Brightening Day Cream, £22: I tried this after it came in a beauty box and I fell in love with it. It's a french brand, and I love how sensitive it is on the skin, it's not fragranced so I feel like it would be good for everyone. In the mornings my skin always looks super dull, so anything to counteract that am I'm in! This really does help to brighten the skin, it's a great base for makeup too as it sinks in quickly.

The Body Shop Vitamin C Eye Reviver, £15: This is my life savour in the mornings, is a great eye product for those early starts! On one end it has a cooling gel which is dispensed through a metal roller that de-puffs and cools the under-eyes. The other side is a cream which is very lightweight and doesn't clog up the area, perfect for using under makeup. The Vitamin C is great for brightening and making the eyes look and feel more awake.
