Beauty products that are great value for money and long lasting are something that make me far happier than they probably should. I don't have the funds (who does?) to be buying things over and over again because they aren't long lasting, sometimes even when you use a tiny amount they still seem go down at a rapid rate. So if like me you like your hard earned pennies to go far then keep on reading!
Claudia Louch Chamomile Face Wash*: This is a gel cleanser that I've waxed absolute lyrical about throughout the past year. A pricey option but boy do you get a lot of product, 240ml to be precise. I use this most days because it really helps to keep my somewhat blemish prone skin completely under control without making my complexion dry and parched. The scent of this is a complete dream too, I really think the entire Claudia Louch range is awesome in general but the cleansers, in particular, are fantastic.
Elizabeth Arden 8-Hour Cream: The do it all balm that really does do it all. I remember when I bought this and I was so grumpy about the price tag but it's one of those products that you such a tiny amount that I honestly think this will last me until I'm in my 30's. I'm currently using this as a lip balm and I forgot just how good it was and how quickly it gets to work to heal any dryness, I've also been using it on a cut on my finger and it's been really helping to soothe that as well. So many makeup artists say that this is their secret weapon and I can see why.
Nuxe Reve De Miel*: This small little jar of lip balm goodness lasted me a solid year and I've used it every single day without fail. For the £10 price tag I think you get your money's worth and then some, it's such a thick luxe balm that you don't need to pack it on to get the benefits. The chocolate orange scent is delicious and it's not the end of the world if you accidentally
on purpose lick some of it off.
Rimmel Match Perfection Loose Powder: Let's be real here, loose powder is a faff to apply and, even though, some of them are easier than others they're still a faff. However the amount you get and the fact that a little really does go a long way means that a loose powder isn't something you're going to have to be buying every few months. Granted you can take them on the go but I still think they are such great value because they last so long.
Origins Make a Difference Moisturiser: Over the years I've tried so many moisturisers that I've lost count, some of them I go through at a rapid rate but then others last me 4-5 months even with daily use. Of course it goes without saying that you have to know how much to apply, it should be about a pea size amount. Origins are always a brand that I've found that always offer the best bang for my buck, with the exception of the GinZing daily moisturiser.
MAC Mineralize Skin Finish: I feel like I've spoken about these a lot lately but hey what can I say they're awesome. I'm beginning to think that I've got a magic compact of Soft & Gentle because, even though, this is my most used highlighter anybody would think that it's never been touched in 3 years. If you're somebody who loves glowing skin (who doesn't?) than I would highly recommend this, not only beautiful but you get so much for your money that again I can imagine I will be using for the next few years and still probably never reach the end.
Do you have any beauty recommendations that are long lasting?
