May: Budget Buys Featuring NYC BB Cream Sticks & Boots Vitamin E Gentle Eye Cream
This month I have been all over these two products, both under €5 so easy on our pockets. I'm all about budget buys but it has been so long since I have gotten bowled over.
Firstly let me start with NYC and their beautiful BB Beautifying Blushable Cream Stick. It costs only €3.49 and is the most beautiful budget blush I have ever bought. It is now in my top 5 of favourite blushes (that will be another post for another day). It is a creamy blush in stick form. Packaging is simple but sleek and I like that a lot. The blush itself is super pigmented that I would advice using your brush/fingers on the stick rather than the stick on your face to avoid a clown face. Great addition to the handbag as well. I have only seen Soho Pink (rose toned) & Never Sleeping Pink (coral toned) in the shops but I really hope they come out with more!

Now for an eye cream! I've never really dabbled in Boots own brand of skincare products, but back a few months ago I was in desperate need of a new eye cream and I didn't want to spend a lot and that is how I discovered this...
Boots Vitamin E Gentle Eye Cream is light and absorbs into your skin effortlessly and quickly. It has SPF15 and all for €3.99. I have battled with eye creams for years and this has made a big difference to me. My dark circles are lighter, and it really brightens up the whole area for me. My laughter lines don't look as deep and I am attributing that to this cream. One other thing that I have noticed is that I haven't used concealer around my eye area the last 4 weeks because this cream really has made all the difference. I am currently kicking myself for not taking before and after pictures but I know for next time not to underestimate anything again.
I hope you enjoyed this months Budget Buys and I definitely think I should make it a monthly fixture to LWR, so let me know what you think? Or do you have a budget recommendation? I would love to hear about it. Let your fingers do the talking and leave a comment below.
