5 BEST SUPERMARKET BEAUTY BUYS
Are you guilty of making the odd sneaky purchase… or five?
Quite skilled at leaving shopping bags in the boot of your car until it’s “safe” to bring them inside?Photograph via Glamcheck.com
Packaging and tags removed and thrown in the bin before they even make it inside?
Not that I’VE done any of the above things… I’ve just “heard” stories of this style of sneaky shopping manoeuvre from sources who shall remain unnamed. Got to protect the sisterhood, haven’t we?
I will admit to more than a few sneaky supermarket beauty purchases though.
If you throw them in your trolley (or add to cart when shopping online) it’s just part of the grocery budget, right? Right?
Of course, top of my supermarket beauty list is Garnier BB Cream, which I talked about here.
But over the years I’ve long gotten over any sense of beauty product snobbery I may have held when my budget may have been less scrutinised.
Instead I continue to make it a mission to uncover products that are hip-pocket friendly, yet still deliver what we need them to.
The good news is that there are lots of products that fall into this category.
I realised long ago that this should not be surprising news as most beauty products available in our supermarkets, salons and makeup counters are “descended” from three big beauty giants.
These beauty giant companies invest truck-loads of dollars each year into finding or creating “the” next big thing in skincare, haircare or cosmetics.
The technology behind that new hair treatment your stylist is talking up is probably similar to one at your local Woolies. Often the only big difference is the price.
Whichever way you fall in regards to performing a sneaky supermarket beauty purchase, I thought I’d let you in on the five products that should be on your grocery list.
1. Invisible Zinc Tinted Daywear Light Anti-Ageing Moisturising sunscreen, $16.22. I live at the beach. When I’m walking the beaches at any time of year, I need protection. This gives me that and a tint that means my skin won’t frighten anyone I might bump into on my way.
2. Pantene Nature Fusion shampoo and conditioner, $8.52 each. I have a dodgy psoriasis scalp. There are few shampoos out there that don’t inflame it. These don’t. And that’s a beauty budget win for me.
