Budget Tweets of the Week: Beauty Tips

Beauty products can be expensive but twitter is full of savvy budgeters who know how to stay gorgeous for less.

I asked do you have any good beauty on a budget tips?

Here is how twitter responded…


lidl’s perfume for £3.99suddenly Madame glamour is my must have

Aldi Lacura make up and moisturisers – they have won awards – their £2.39 mascara is a must have


colleges offer facials, manicures etc cheap to give students the experience – Def wdnt try waxing tho :/ #budgettweet


Wash your hair regularly and try lots of new styles  (that’s me!)


Totally free but incredibly hard to get your hands on- its called ‘sleep’ – miracle stuff! #peskykids #yawwwn


use baby oil as eye make-up remover? #budgettweets

use eBay to get sample sizes of ‘quality’ products like Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream – only need a little & works wonders!


water. Lots of water.


Aldi beauty serum, less than £4 and beats Boots no 7 in all the reviews!


always keep sudocrem in the house. Used on any spots or redness overnight really makes a big difference! #budgettweet


Waitrose’s baby bottom butter. A fab winter/night cream, lip balm, dry skin treatment Louise:-)


@Avon_UK  basic face cream, large tub £3-5 lasts 6 months or so & works wonderfully. Used 4 years, better than Expensive Olay


I use coconut oil (food grade) as a moisturiser for face and body also an eye make-up remover. It has a million beauty uses.


Thanks for the great advice Twitter!

    Love this blog and the beauty tips! I have to admit, as founder of Someone Else’s Wardrobe, I’m a big believer in high quality bargains and clever budgeting. I love the Lidl Madame Glamour – it’s a gorgeous smell and lasts for ages! Not only have I used it but it makes great gifts for people so perfect for this time of year to fill those stockings 🙂 xx
