The saying goes that ‘you get what you pay for’, but when it comes to beauty products, how true actually is this? Does a product have to have a high price tag to guarantee quality? Or, should the formula - and how well it actually performs – be the main marker?
The truth is that the price of a beauty product doesn’t necessarily reflect how good it is. You could spend £50 on a moisturiser that doesn’t do what it says it will, while another £5 face cream totally delivers.
While there are plenty of high-end products that do live up to the hype and are worth every penny, there are also plenty that don’t and aren’t. Equally, when it comes to budget-friendly beauty, lots of low cost products work just as well as – and sometimes, dare we say it, even better – than their pricier counterparts.
The tricky part is knowing which to pick. Which is why we’ve rounded up our favourite budget-friendly beauty buys in one handy place. From makeup to skincare, these products might be low on price but they’re high on quality – these best buys really will rock your world.
