Bargain Buys: Get The Best For Your Money. 

Like many girls, there’s an endless list of things I want (need). Literally, it’s never ending because as soon as I get my hands on something, I see the next thing for my wish list. I know most girls are the same so I’ve compiled a few bargains I’ve seen recently so you can reep the benefits too. I’ll continue with these posts if you guys like them so make sure you let me know via the comments/insta/twitter. 

Glamour Magazine

You can get some AMAZING free gifts in magazines every so often and I find Glamour does the best! Last month it was a tube of a new St Tropez tan and this month there’s a range of Model Co makeup! They’ve worked with Model Co previously and I remember getting a lip liner I LOVED but then begrudged paying £16 for another when it ran out as I knew how cheap I had it previously. So you can imagine my excitement when I saw it in this months issue for only ONE POUND. Obviously I bought two. Also there’s an eyeliner, mascara and lipgloss available worth a combined £55. I’m now on the hunt to find the gloss! Always check out the magazine freebies when you’re at the supermarket or newsagents. Primark 


I’m sure you already know the bargain store that is Primark. But did you know they’ve bought out a small range of Perspex beauty organisers? You know the ones that are everywhereeeee on Instagram and allow you to show off all your designer makeup? I needed a new one for my ever expanding MAC lipstick collection and was so happy to see this bargain one for £2 when id usually expect to pay between £15-£60 (depending on size). 

The top left holder is the Primark one, that’s holding the foundations, lip liners and 6 lipsticks. 



Also from Primark, these cute little bikinis that cost me something ridiculous like £2 or £3 and were perfect for lazy days on the beach when you don’t need to dress up too much! How can you argue for that price? 


Zara Sale 

I wasn’t even aware of this until I went into my agency and all of the bookers had huge boxes delivered! Head to the Zara website and there’s TONES of stuff in the sale. Grab yourself a bargain!


Spotify Premium

I’m new to Spotify so recently took advantage of their free week trial of Premium. I was pleasantly surprised by their offer of another 3 months for just 0.99p – how could I refuse that? This offer is on until June 30th so if you’re new to Spotify also, take advantage of this amazing offer! Have you spotted any more bargains, freebies or money saving tips?

Argan Oil Review. 

I have a bit of an obsession with dewy, flowing faces, smooth and soft skin, and glossy, silky hair…. Basically all things ‘hydration’!! With this in mind, I always jump at anything that claims to offer a good shot of hydration. 

I think it’s safe to say that most of us associate quality with price… High price – high quality. Low price – low quality. Right? Wrong. 

My aunty was recently telling my mum all about these new hair products she had tried and loved! They’re basically a range of Argan Oil hair products which sounds all very normal and well with the world going Argan Oil mad at the moment.. But there’s a catch. 

These products are from POUND LAND! Yep, pound land. A pound each. 100 pence. They can’t be any good, surely? Wrong again. I’ve started using this range out of curiousity and I’ve been pleasantly surprised. When it comes to my hair, I usually splash out a little and use Bed Head or Wella products because I assume they’re better for my bleached hair. 

Here’s a few products that I’ve purchased (note that there is a few more that I’m yet to try in this range!) 

   Shampoo, conditioner, treatment mask and heat defence leave in spray.

   

  

The shampoo and conditioner do feel a little runny but it’s not a problem once the product actually hits your hair. The shampoo still lathers up and the conditioner still coats the hair nicely. 

  
The mask is creamy and oily in a nice way. After soaking my hair in this for a while whilst I was in the bath, my hair was left luscious and silky and with a healthy gloss. 

   

This leave in spray is the perfect finish before blow drying and styling your hair. It’s always a good idea to defend your hair from the every day styling heat and a little extra moisture to get you through the day is only a good thing. 

All in all, I’d give these products an 7/10. They have brilliant hydrating properties and have left my bleached hair feeling lovely. They’re also amazing considering the rediculously low price! They also small fantastic.  The only down side is the runnyness which takes away a certain hint of luxury and means you have to use more product than normal. I would definitely recommend getting down to your local pound shop/pound land/ b&m etc and picking some of this up!
