In this age of austerity and the recent VAT increase, I'm cutting back and making economies so that I can still afford a fashion fix (or two!). First to go are my more expensive lotions and potions. After all, the price tag doesn't necessarily equal effectiveness.
My thrifty skincare tip is Nivea's new Pure & Natural range. Put together natural ingredients and Nivea's expertise and the result is affordable face and body care products that are free from parabens, silicones, colourants and mineral oils – with a whopping 95% of ingredients from natural origins.
My new skincare regime comprises Nivea's Pure & Natural Anti-Wrinkle Day and Night Creams (below, £8.49 each). They help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. What's more, they've been proven to outperform the world's best-selling anti-wrinkle cream. Not bad for under a tenner each, eh?
Nivea's Pure & Natural Body Lotion (below, £3.57) and Hand Cream (above, £3.05) are equally purse-friendly. Both contain argan oil, a natural source of vitamin E, which softens and smoothes my skin brilliantly. The body lotion is especially good right now for tackling dryness, while the hand cream gives intense moisturisation.
Last but not least is my favourite product: Nivea's Pure & Natural Milk & Honey Lip Balm (above, £1.99). With milk and honey extract, organic shea butter and natural jojoba oil, it's super-hydrating – a miracle stick for my winter-chapped lips. Plus, it tastes yummy, too.
The Nivea Pure & Natural range also includes a Facial Moisturising Day Cream (£5.10), Facial Cleaner and Toner (£3.36 each) and Body Moisturiser (£3.57). It's available from 20th February at www.nivea.co.uk and selected stockists, with the anti-wrinkle creams available exclusively at Boots and boots.com. Superb skincare on a shoestring? You'd better believe it.
