Best Cheap Beauty Buys Under £10
Celebrities have professional makeup artists to help them perfect their look every day, but they also need to rely on everyday high street makeup products too. When they’re not sitting in the makeup chair being primed for TV and film for hours with luxury products, they need simple and easy makeup and skincare items that are available for us all to try.
From shower oil, to baby wipes, Sudocrem, and bath salts, the celebs we see on our TV every day use a wide variety of beauty products that you will find in supermarkets and high street stores everywhere; from big-name brands like Johnson’s to traditional favourites like Pond’s Cold Cream.
Here are some of the best celebrity beauty buys for less than £10 that we can all invest in. We can’t promise that you’ll suddenly look like Holly Willoughby or Fearne Cotton by using these products, but if the celebs trust in these simple beauty buys over the luxury alternatives, then they should be good enough for us mortals, too.
The Sanctuary 2-day Moisture Shower Oil
ITV’s This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby uses The Sanctuary 2-day Moisture Shower Oil. Use in the shower and your skin will stay moisturised for two days. Holly said: "It's really good because when I get out of the shower I don't have to moisturise, so that really works."
E45 Moisturising Body Lotion
The Greatest Dancer coach Cheryl uses E45 Moisturising Body Lotion for dry skin, proven to reduce roughness and flaking. The Geordie beauty said: "You don't have to use mega-expensive products – you just need to find the right products for your skin."
Johnson's Baby Wipes
£10 for 12 packs
Celebrity Juice star Fearne Cotton uses Johnson's Baby Wipes. She said: "I carry them with me everywhere. They take your makeup off and moisturise simultaneously."
Girls Aloud star and mum of two Kimberley Walsh used Sudocrem to help with acne during her pregnancies. "Cheryl and I put it on our spots before we go to bed - we've shared that beauty tip with the rest of the girls," she confessed, referring to her former bandmates.
Epsom Bath Salts
The actress and founder of lifestyle brand Goop, Gwyneth Paltrow, apparently uses Epsom Bath Salts to flush out toxins and ease aching muscles.
Ponds Cold Cream Cleanser
Australian pop singer Kylie Minogue uses Ponds Cold Cream Cleanser, a rich, thick, facial cleansing cream. She said: "It's really changed my skin. It's an old classic, it's made such a difference."
Vaseline can be used as an under-eye wrinkle treatment and general skin moisturiser; former model Tyra Banks gave out free pots of the petroleum jelly to every member of the audience of her talk show.
Astral All Over Moisturiser
Actress Joanna Lumley uses Astral All Over Moisturiser. It’s been a popular all-round moisturiser since 1953. Joanna said: "I'm thrilled to try all sorts of face firmers and wrinkle-reduction creams, but the one I always come back to is plain, simple Astral cream. I've used it for over 35 years and it just works for me."
Strictly Come Dancing presenter Tess Daly uses Bio-oil. The oil is designed to help the appearance of scars and stretch marks, and is good for dehydrated skin too. Tess said: "It's one of my beauty staples and contains the healing oils of rosemary and camomile to tackle dry skin. It goes a long way and you can even add a few drops to your bath."
