10 Under £10

Everyone loves a budget beauty gem, am I right or am I right!? I've been having a little think lately about some of my favourite affordable beauty products and thought I'd put together a wee list of the gems you can pick up for a tenner or less!
Ten Beauty Products Under A Tenner
Una Brennan SuperFacialist Salicylic Acid Purifying Cleansing Wash | £7.99/150ml | My all-time favourite facewash; I cannot sing its praises enough! It smells gorgeous, it's super gentle and non-drying on my skin, yet by some form of magic seems to really help keep my skin looking clear.
Nuxe Rêve de Miel Ultra-Nourishing Lip Balm | £8.55/15g | A blogger cliché, to be sure, but it's a cliché for a reason - it really works! I'm not a huge fan of the scent of Nuxe products, but I can kind of overlook it because of how great this is for hydrating dry, chapped lips and leaving them good-as-new overnight.
Toni & Guy Casual Matt Texture Dry Shampoo | £7.49/250ml | I admit it's more than I'd ideally be spending on a dry shampoo but it's my ultimate favourite... No white residue and it actually leaves my hair looking presentable - my scalp is super oily so many dry shampoos fall short, for me.
Garnier SkinActive Oil-Infused Micellar Cleansing Water | £5.99/400ml | This is so gentle on the skin and doesn't sting my eyes, meaning I can use it to remove all my make-up in one go - no faffing for me! You just shake to mix the oil with the water, soak a cotton pad and swipe over the skin. Obviously I only use this as a pre-cleanse, I wouldn't depend on it as my only cleanse.
George Highlight & Define | £3.50/12ml | This is pretty much a perfect dupe for Benefit's High Beam but at a fraction of the price and, in my opinion, with better packaging. It gives a lovely glow to my skin without being overtly sparkly. I love it!
Ten Beauty products Under £10
Sally Hansen Hard As Nails | £4.75/13ml | I'll admit I'm useless at remembering to use this, partially because I rarely get chance to paint my nails anymore, but when I do remember, it gives a lovely glossy finish and makes a great base for nail polish.
MUA Luxe Eyeshadow Palette in 'Paradise' | £8 | This has been my most-used eyeshadow palette since I got it, it's got such beautiful shades in and they wear really well. The price belies the quality, I'd happily pay twice that price for it!
Tea Tree Oil | £1.88/10ml | Tea tree oil is an absolute staple for me, I don't have a favourite brand (this is just a cheapy one off Amazon!) but I love it to just dab onto spots, as I find it really brings the redness and soreness down overnight.
Kind Natured Coconut & Passionflower Body Wash | £4.99/250ml | This smells gorgeous and, being SLS-free, it doesn't irritate my eczema - it just leaves my skin feeling clean and super-soft. Love! I've got a post on Kind Natured's bodycare products so check that out if you'd like to learn more about this brand!
The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector | £5/30ml | Cheating a little here because the photo shows the big 100ml tube which is actually £11... But you can get a smaller tube for under a tenner so I'm counting it! Nothing else works quite like this to soothe and heal my eczema-prone hands.

Have you tried any of these products? What are your favourite affordable beauty products? I'd love to hear about them!
