Great Beauty Items For Under £10- Post #1

This is the first post of my series featuring beauty products that I have tried, liked, and will be repurchasing, all for under £10.

Soap and Glory Hand Food (£5)
-I love the smell of this hand cream and it works amazingly. It's not greasy at all, and it really softens and moisturises my chapped hands. (Full review here)

The Body Shop Shower Gels (£4)
-The Body Shop shower gels always smell amazing and are a real treat to wash with. They are thick so last a long time too :) This Jasmine one is one of my faves! (Full review here)

The Body Shop Vitamin C Energising Face Spray (£9)
-This face spray is really refreshing, I spray it on in the morning and it brightens my face as well as wakes me up! It's particularly good during the summer or for holidays.

John Frieda Anytime Volume Refresher Spray (£5.50)
-I use this volume spray everyday after I've straightened my hair. It gives it a huge lift, making it easy to style and adding lots of texture (Full Review here)

No 7 eyeliners (£7.25)
-I have been using these No 7 eyeliners for years- I love them, they never smudge  (Full review here)

Blotting sheets (Approx £1.99)
-These are fantastic for combating shine and oily skin during the day. I keep them in my handbag and simply dab onto my face when it's looking greasey (Full review here)

Carmex (Approx £1.30)
-This is a little wonder product- it keeps my lips soft and not chapped all year round, I'd be lost without it! (Full review here)

Essie Nail Varnishes (£8)
-My favourite nail varnishes at the moment! I love the intensity and strength of the colours, and they last about 4 days without chipping! (Full reviews of some here)

Broadway Nail Stickers (£2.99)
-A great way to make your nails look interesting and creative without much faff or effort! (Full review here)

John Frieda Hair Dye (£9.99)
-This is my favourite brand of hair dye to do at home. It is easy to apply with the foam formula, hardly any mess, and the colour stays vibrant for at least a month. I particularly love the Dark Red Brown shade! (Full review here)

Rimmel Acopolips (£5.99)
-There's been a lot of hype about these, but for a very good reason: they're fab! The colours are intense, they're not sticky at all and they last quite a long time on your lips! (Full review here)

What do you think of this series? Have you tried any of these products?
