New affordable Skincare Haul

Tuesday 21 July 2020 Banbury, UK

Lockdown have been relaxed a little while ago, as you all know, so few days ago I had my first trip to my local shopping mall. Last time I set foot in there was many many, many, months ago , like obviously for all of us. I was rather excited on getting my hand on few products that I was actually in need and also trying new little things. Face mask  (yes always wear your mask when out people to protect the most vulnerable!) and anti bacterial hand gel at the ready I was off for my little shopping trip. 

Few things that I needed was body lotion /cream and also a face hydration cream and it is without any surprise, that Superdrug deliver on the subject. As much as I love Boots, Superdrug never disappointed me. I always navigate between one or the others. I love Superdrug for their approach on affordable but quality products and Boots for offering more luxury items especially in the make up and skincare range.
Without any further do, here what I purchased:

Avocado Body Butter - Superdrug £3.99/200ml
I came across this Avocado Body Butter tub. Its a new product from Superdrug own brand but I just adore the packaging, the easy access tub, the natural extracts, but also it is 100% vegan, cruelty free and of course for the delightful avocado scent.  This beautiful tub just tick all the boxes for me and as I always love trying new things from high end brands to Hight street affordable alternative. This one has to come back home with me.

Almond Body Milk- Superdrug £3.99/ 250ml
In the same range I came across this Almond Body Milk also by Superdrug own brand. I am usually more of a Nivea lotion but I was, once again, seduced by the cute bottle like packaging and like the butter version, this product is also vegan, cruelty free and everything else in between. Also the scent ,which is divine, and just like that this bottle end up in my basket. Since my purchased I tried on few occasions this body lotion. And as expected I am pretty satisfied with the result. It is light, silky, the lotion get absorb by my skin very quickly and leave my skin feeling soft and moisturize like it should be. At any point I felt my skin feeling sticky or left with some sort of residue. Overall a lovely body lotion. If I were to make one comment its that the scent is not as strong as I first though. After application the scent is almost non existent, in all honesty this is not something that bother me but if you are after a product, that leave for few hours a lovely scent on your body, then this product is not for you. But as body lotion moisturizer go, it a very decent one. 
Would I purchase it again? Probably Yes.

PS... SUN Protect Sensitive Face Cream - Primark £3/ 50ml
The next one is a bit of surprise buy for me. This PS... Sun Face Protect by Primark was something that I never though I will buy one day from Primark. You should know that I am not a huge Primark base fan.
I have nothing against this shop but in all honestly this is not a place I usually go. Long story short I came across this SPF Sensitive Face Cream and as I am someone that believe on protecting your face from sun damage all year round, this product intrigued me and I was ready to give it a go. This the very first time that I buy a skin care product from Primark. So in all honestly the low price shock me a bit and I am not too sure what to expect? It will be in my opinion a very interesting product to try for few weeks and I will definitely report back.

Have you tried any skincare products from Primark before? I would actually love to hear your though on the matter.

I hope my little beauty affordable haul. Have you been skincare shopping lately if yes I would love to hear what you got your hands on. Leave me a comment!
