We all like to save the cash don't we. There is nothing worse than putting your card into the chip and pin reader and seeing your money be zapped away, so any cheap products that do the deed at a decent price is always a rather good thing. Here are 4 (and I had to choose 4 because otherwise this list would be quite long!) of my favourite bathroom products that I keep returning to and repurchasing, and they're all priced at under a fiver.
Beverly Hills Formula - £2.99: This is my favourite toothpaste ever, and I did blog about it about a year ago I think. This toothpaste is the best whitening product I have ever used. When I was given a sample, the challenge was to use it for a week or something and see if you could see a significant difference in a week or two. I found the results to be so quick, that I ran out and bought a tube straight away. It's recommended to put a little bit of the toothpaste on your teeth before brushing for extra whitening, and I have found in the year I've been using it that my teeth are whiter, brighter, and I'm happy with the colour that it has helped to achieve. As far as I'm concerned, if this helps to keep my teeth looking nice and white and healthy, then I'm gonna carry on using it, and not bother with other teeth whitening products.
Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor - £4.99: My bathroom is never empty of Aussie products..I have just counted and I currently have 9 bottles of various Aussie bits and bobs..oh yes! However, the 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor is one item I don't ever go without. Due to having my hair dyed every 6 weeks, I try to keep it in as good of condition as I can, and the 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructors help deal with any dry or damaged hair I have in the mean time. I usually use this twice to three times a week, leave it on for slightly longer than 3 minutes, breath in the gorgeous smell (how can anyone not enjoy the Aussie scents?!) and wash out, et voila..beautiful, soft and more nourished hair. This truly makes a significant change in the way my hair feels, not to mention smelling fabulous!
Johnson's Baby Bath - £2.90: I have also previously blogged about this item too. There is something about Johnson's Baby Bath that just makes me feel like I'm being snuggled into a warm embrace from the past. Once I've poured the first few blue drops, I'm taken back to being very young, and I suddenly feel very comforted and relaxed. It's super sensitive and should be fine on anyone's skin, and a big bottle lasts a really long while. It won't give you the mountainous bath of bubbles you might get with a Lush product, but it's soothing, simple and baby soft. Every Sunday night, I have my Johnson's bubble bath time, and yes, you guessed it..I go to bed sleeping like a baby.
Dove Deeply Nourishing Body Wash - £2.40: This has been my staple body wash for years now. I love the simple and clean fragrance, but the winner for me is just how moisturising it is. The consistency is a lot thicker than some body washes but lathers so well, and after I've used it, my skin feels fabulous. I do find that using this in hot countries shows its real potential. After a long day in the sun, your skin needs moisturising more than ever, and after using this, my skin feels so different. This always gets packed into my suitcase, and will be again when I go away in December.
So there are just 4 of my fave bathroom products under £5 - hard working items that don't break the bank - everyone's a winner right?
