Pamper Yourself For Less Than £5

I love a good pamper.
Especially after the gym on a Friday night to mark the end of the week and to get refreshed for the weekend.

You don't have to spend a fortune either to put a basic pampering kit together so yesterday lunchtime, armed with my last £5 in the world, I challenged myself to find the essential beauty basics on a very limited budget.

This is what I decided on:

Radox Moisture Soak - 99p; Mudd Sea Mask - £1.01;
Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deep Conditioner - 99p; Coconut & Shea Butter Body Butter - £1
All from Superdrug.

I also treated myself to an MUA lipstick in shade 4 - £1.

It looks shockingly pink in the tube but it is actually very sheer and wearable. It applies like a dream and is incredibly creamy and moisturising.

This brings the grand total to...£4.99!

Clearly they are not the most luxurious items available but I just wanted to show that you can buy everything you need for a relaxing makeshift spa evening without breaking the bank!

Samples and travel sized items are a great buy if you are looking to try something new or you are simply on a tight budget.

I hope you all have a lovely Friday night; I'm off to soak in a hot Radox bath while my face and hair masks do their work!


  1. ooohhh enjoy. I love nights like that! :D

  2. I like this post alot! I've bought two of those as my pamper items in the past :p x

  3. Great post! I am short of cash at the moment, but I have £5 to spare and am going to do something like this tomorrow!

  4. I keep hearing great things about Essie 3 Minute Miracle, too bad I can't find it here )=

  5. @GABY - it's actually the first time I've ever used anything by hair now smells like bubblegum! Maybe you can get it on ebay?

  6. oooh sounds like a perfect night in to me, just add chocs/sweeties/takeaway and a movie, a gorgeous hunk to snuggle up with and jackpot!!!!

    hope you enjoy(ed) your night :)
