My 5 Holy Grail Drugstore Skincare Products

Recently I have found the perfect skincare routine for my skin, I have normal/combination skin with the occasional problem with breakouts when I’m stressed or it’s that time of the month. So I thought I would share my 5 holy grail skincare products which are affordable!
1. Nivea Express Hydration Primer (£4.99)

If you’ve been with me for a while then you will know that I absolutely adore this moisturiser/primer! One of the reasons why I love it so much is because it’s a multitasking product which saves time and money! I use the one for normal/combination skin and it works wonders for my skin, smooths out every pore and my make-up routine works perfectly with it too!

2. Simple Kind To Eyes Soothing Eye Balm (£3.99)

I am quite the night owl so I tend to get terrible dark circles and bags quite often so I can use all the help I can get! I’ve been using this for over a year now and I really couldn’t live without it. Now I know I could just be like any normal person and go to bed early but when you’ve been in the routine of going to sleep at around 2 o’clock every day for the past year or so, you get stuck in that habit and your eyes pay for it! This cream is fantastic at taking down any puffiness and tames that ‘I’m a zombie’ eyed look in a matter of minutes! How awesome is that?!

3. Garnier Skin Naturals Pure Active 2in1 Make-Up Remover Gel (£4.99)

Yet another multitasking product I adore, not only does it remove every last trace of make-up but it also clears any imperfections. Again I have used this for quite some time and this is my third bottle and I know it won’t be the last! I use this pretty much every day, even when I haven’t worn make-up because it still benefits my skin and calms everything down.

4. Simple Kind To Skin Pore Minimising Toning Cleanser (£4.85)

One of my biggest skin problems is large pores however since using this after removing my makeup I have noticed a difference in my pores which is amazing, the only complaint I have with it is sometimes it can leave a bit of an oily film on the skin but other than that it is amazing!

5. Garnier Pure Active Anti-Blackhead Deep Pore Wash (£2.65)

I bought this as a replacement for the Garnier Pure Active Blackhead Clearing Scrub. I’m not sure if they have changed the packaging or what however I picked this up anyway and turns out that I like it a lot more than what I originally wanted! It has less exfoliating beads in it so it’s not as harsh on my skin which I am seeing benefits from. Before I started using this wash I used to have quite sensitive skin on my cheekbones and around my nose however since using this one, those areas aren’t as sensitive anymore.


Well, there’s my holy grail skincare products, what’s yours?
