A Couple of Winter Skincare Essentials That Are Under £5!

As Summer has faded and Autumn has approached I have found myself reaching out for a couple of my skincare winter favourites. I buy these products year after year as they are cheap and they work.

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream (Concentrated) - Retails for around £3.59 for 50ml

A little goes a long way with this glycerin enriched formula, you only need a tiny amount to get super soft hands.  I love the scent, which I find strangely comforting but if you are not a fan of scents, it disappears soon after application. The cream comes out clear and has a thick gel consistency but pleasingly it is non greasy. One of my favourite hand creams and now one of my husband's too. My husband has terribly dry, sore, chapped hands in winter and this works instantly for him, as the packaging is of a smart design he doesn't mind using it....

Vaseline Lip Therapy Original - Retails for under £2

I apply this every night on my lips as soon as the weather starts to get chilly and I wake up with beautifully soft, smooth lips. It comes in a 20g tin and it lasts ages. I have used Vaseline (petroleum jelly) for years and I don't think I will ever stop having a tin in the house. It really is a household essential.

Last year I discovered the wonders of Vaseline Lip Therapy Cocoa which is lovely and I alternate this with the original version. On my to buy list this year is the Rosy Lips version, apparently it tints the lips as well as providing the usual moisture.

What are your bargain winter essentials?


  1. I love vasaline, Ive seen superdrug has the BIG tins containing lots of little tins I might have to get me some.

  2. I love those little Vaseline thint, especially the cocoa butter one (:

  3. You can never go wrong with Neutrogena and Vaseline. Very affordable yet with high quality. Moisturizer is a must in colder months. Skin gets dry easily. So instead of body lotion, I switch to my favorite Omorovicza body oil.


Please leave your comments, I love reading them and will reply to all :-)
