#SBBC Day 20 - 10 Products under €10


A lot of my beauty products cost under €10 - but here are 10 of my favourites, in no particular order.

1. Paese Matte Make-up Base.

This is my favourite primer, it's really smooth and soft on the skin. It costs €8.95 from Cloud 10.

2. Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Reconstructor Treatment.

This is one of my favourite hair treatments along with the Hask products. This smells delicious and leaves my hair silky soft. I'm actually out of the big bottle of treatment, but I have a few of these sachets on standby. A 250ml bottle of the reconstructor treatment costs €6.39 from McCabes & most chemists and supermarkets.

3. Daiso Puff & Sponge Detergent.

This was definitely one of my best buys this year. You can read my full post about it here - and see how well it works. I never thought I'd actually enjoy cleaning my make-up brushes! It costs just under €4.50 on eBay.

4. Catrice Hey Nude! Lipstick

The minute I saw Nina's review of this lipstick over on Lovely Girlie Bits, I wanted it. I finally tracked it down on a Catrice stand in town and I picked it up immediately. It's a fantastic nude colour, really moisturizing, and lasts ages. It cost €4.49, available from Catrice stands nationwide.

5. Essence I Love Stage Eyeshadow Base

I actually only became aware of this eyeshadow base when I saw a couple of posts about it during the May/June blog challenges - I'm so sorry I can't find a price for it at the minute, but I know for a fact it's under €4 and it really does do the job. An excellent eye primer!

7. Sure Women Maximum Protection Anti-Perspirant Deodorant

I reviewed this already here - the stuff is fantastic. I've used it every day since, it's legitimately the best anti-perspirant deodorant I've ever used. Gone are the days of damp armpits or sweaty underboobs (sorry). Mine was a press sample, but I'd happily pay double the €6.99 for it. It's THAT good.

8. Vichy Aqualia Thermal Soothing & Repairing Lip Balm

I have a full post and review on this here - it's a must-have for the cooler weather, and I always make sure I have a backup. It's an amazing lip product and one I will happily repurchase for years to come. Nothing else I've used has repaired my cracked lips in such a short space of time. This costs me €3.95 a pop in my local chemist.

9. Radox Brazilian Fusion Shower Gel

Radox Shower Smoothies are some of my favourite shower treats, and I always pick them up when I see them on offer. The last time I went looking, I saw this instead - Brazilian Fusion shower gel. It's a limited edition and it smells delicious, like most of the Radox scents. I also like the handy little hanger at the top of the bottle. This, along with other variations, is currently on offer in Tesco for the crazy price of €1.29. The regular price is €2.59 for a 250ml bottle.

10. Hask Argan Oil Intense Deep Conditioning Treatment

This was a saviour of mine during the hot weather. It revived my frazzled hair instantly, and lived up to every claim on the packet (which is rare). You can read my full review of it here. This cost €2.99 from my local chemist.

I can't wait to read about everyone else's bargain buys! If you're not doing the #SBBC and have discovered a brilliant product that costs under €10, please let me know in the comments!
