Beauty on a budget | Skincare part one

It can be quite hard to find skincare items that leave you glowing but don't break your bank account, so I thought I would put together a little series that goes through some of the amazing skincare products, old and new, that are really quite affordable.

The first one I have for you is tried and tested, it's a cleaner, moisturiser and a makeup remover. What is that miracle? I hear you ask, well that miracle is Pond's Cold Cream.

Pond's has been around since 1840, that's nearly 200 years of women using it and going back for pot after pot. It's used by celebrities, endorsed by generations and seems to have gone a little over looked in recent years!

But first things first, lets talk price. This little beauty cost me a whopping £1.99. I couldn't even buy a ticket on the bus for that price! It comes in a beautiful glass pot (Glass!? For £1.99!?) and smells of flowers. I'm not sure which flowers, but hey, flowers is a lot better than many other smells.

It looks like a standard cream, is of a medium thickness and is perfect for ANY skin type. How do you use it? Well all you have to do is massage it onto your skin and remove the excess with a clean cotton pad. It'll leave you glorious and glowing, perfect for the silly winter months!

Here's a fun little advert from the 1930's, we all still worry about the same things today, nothing changes in 100 years!

So if you're after a budget beauty item go out and try this gorgeous cream!

  1. Cold cream is awesome! I've always used it to take off my eye makeup but I never knew it's history or even that it was also a cleanser and moisturizer. It's pretty amazing.
