12 Best Beauty Buys in Supermarkets

Published by Donna Coppack on

If you have spent the last half an hour trawling around you local supermarket slaving away putting broccoli, bin liners and milk in your trolley then you deserve a treat.  

These products are all under £10 and can be added onto the weekly shop for a little pick-me-up without breaking your budget.


Cien Nail Varnish Remover- £1.49

I have mentioned this stuff before.  It is hard to be excited over a nail varnish remover but this one removes all traces of nail varnish easily, it doesn’t leave a white residue and it has a pump top to stop spills, best of all it is only £1.49!
Suddenly Madame Glamour- £3.99
A great dupe of Coco Mademoiselle.  This is a great everyday scent, the silage and the longevity aren’t as good but for the price you can’t go wrong. 


This is a great finishing product or just something to brush through your hair after a shower and before drying to make it more manageable.  They also stock Phil Smith Total Treat Argan Oil which I haven’t tried but at £4 might be worth a punt.
I received a sample of both of these as I love sulphate free products and was really impressed.  They are beautifully packaged and feel a real treat to use.  My only bugbear with these is that it is not easy to figure out which is shampoo and which is conditioner from the bottle.


I’m not going to list anything for Morrison’s out of protest at it’s terrible excuse for a beauty aisle.  It has nothing of interest, just items you can get anywhere.  Save your money and shop else where for beauty supplies.


Real Techniques Brushes – From £6.98
I’m not sure any more needs to be written about these brushes.  The only point worth adding is that you can buy them in Asda!

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer £4.18
Beauty bloggers favourite, enough said.  Make Up Alley 4.1 – Their liquid Liner is worth a look too.


If you fancy trying out a balm cleanser this is a great one to start with.  It comes with a muslin and does what it says on the box.  I have read a lot of reviews comparing this favourably to Liz Earle Hot cloth cleanser.
Really good foundation for oily skin, stays all day, only problem is limited range of colours.


This has a cult following by the dry skin brigade.  It is formulated for babies and is very gentle yet effective. I would personally use this as a balm cleanser along with a muslin, as it is mainly olive oil and chamomile which would be too much for my skin as a moisturiser but would remove makeup like a dream.
Cute cult beauty product, the only downside is the unsanitary container. Make Up Alley 4.0


Lacura Q10 Anti Wrinkle £4.99 
For drier skin and highly fragranced but if you are fine with that, it is a beauty steal.
It contains – retinol (wrinkle reduction), glycerine (moisturiser), linoleic acid (anti-ox and repair) and Ubiquinone (Q10) Make Up Alley 4.4
Lacura Wrinkle Stop £4.99
This is one of those serums containing syn-ake (see what they did there) which is a chemical that mimics snake venom and temporarily freezes the face.  This is a good dupe for the Nip+Fab Viper Venom Wrinkle Fix and for the price is worth a go.  
So no matter where you do your next shop, you can fling a little something for you in your basket too, well unless your in Morrison’s.

Good picks! I love the Suddenly Madame Glamour, the Chanel Coco Mademoiselle is my usual perfume so its really useful for topping up and taking with you – I just wish they did travel sizes of it! xx
