Skincare On A Budget

It is safe to say i'm a skincare addict and I believe it is definitely worth shelling out a few extra pounds on skincare if the products are going to be more effective. However i've come across a few affordable product that I love. I did one of these affordable skincare post last year which you can read here.
Starting with cleansers I have the Amie Morning Clear Purifying Facial Wash, I think Amie is a great affordable skincare brand and this cream cleanser is so lovely. It feels moisturising on the skin whilst leaving the face feeling clean. There are no SLS or parabens in it and is even vegan friendly. The other one I have is the Organic Surge Daily Care Facial Wash, this one is a great basic face wash which you could use both morning and night. Again it has no nasties in it, isn't drying and can even be used on sensitive skin.
I've been really into The Body Shop skincare products recently. One of my favourites has been the Seaweed Clarifying Toner. This is a great alcohol free toner which leaves the skin feeling refreshed; perfect for people with combination skin. The other product is the Vitamin E Eye Cream, this is a lovely light eye cream which leaves the skin feeling soft and helps with puffyness and fine lines. 
A product that was a savior to my skin last year is the La Roche Posay Hydraphase Intense Masque, this is a moisturising mask perfect to use and dehydrated combination skin because it doesn't feel too heavy but is nourishing to the skin. Another Amie product I love is the Morning Dew Matte Finish Moisturiser, this mattifies the skin whilst being moisturising. A great cheap everyday moisturiser that is perfect for dehydrated skin. 
Finally some masks, the first being the Dr Organic Manuka Honey Face Mask, this is a clay mask which not only deeply cleanses the skin but is also nourishing. The manuka honey is also perfect for getting rid of any blemishes. A new favourite which I can't get enough of is the Super Facialist By Una Brennan Tea Flower Deap Clean Pore Purrifying Clay Mask, this is definitely the best affordable clay mask i've found. It feels the skin feeling so clean without be drying, it also helps with any pesky blemishes. Finally I have the Garnier Pure Self Heating Sauna Mask, this one heats up as you apply it and after being washed off leaves the skin feeling so refreshed. Perfect as a quick fix to oily, spotty skin. 

So those are some of my favourite affordable skincare products at the moment, I hope this was helpful to anyone who is on a budget. Feel free to leave some of your favourites in the comments section.
