I don’t generally blog about beauty. Mostly because I feel so totally unqualified in this area. But actually, that’s the beauty of blogging. It requires zero qualification, just a point of view. Besides I’m no more qualified to talk about food, yet I’m always blathering on about that, so why not beauty I figure.
So, a bit of background on my beauty shopping. I’m not a slave to brands but I do like to take care of my skin. I thoroughly cleanse and moisturise twice daily. My husband calls it “The Routine”. To give you an idea of my spending level for beauty and skincare products, my preferences are generally L’oreal, Olay and Nivea. Within my price range, I find they offer the best value for money and quality of product. I also love a bargain and these brands regularly have offers. Inadvertently, I recently bought some night cream for an older age range from L’oreal. Doesn’t matter I thought, I’ll just use it up and make sure I check my next purchase properly. But actually it made my skin really greasy and the product itself felt heavy on application. When I went to buy an alternative, Superdrug (the shop I happened to chose that day) had an offer on the Olay Anti Wrinkle range. I had never tried it before but actually it is perfect for my age group. Preferred brand, bargain offer (half price at £5 in Superdrug) and suitability…ch-ching.
