As a uni student I know how hard it is to keep yourself looking gorgeous AND survive. Beauty products can be expensive! So I've put together a few ideas for you...
The Body Shop Facial Brush ($4.95, www.thebodyshop.com.au)
Who needs a Clarisonic?! These babies do a great job for a fraction of the price. Simply pop your cleanser on it, then use gentle motions over your face (circular usually works best) and rinse. You'll see your makeup come off along with all the dirt and grime. Use it 3 times a week, or if you have sensitive skin only use it once a week as it is gently exfoliating as well.
Cactus Brush (variable, eg $22.95 from www.thebodyshop.com.au but also available at Priceline, chemists etc)
Who needs expensive body scrubs?! Dry brushing not only helps to exfoliate and regenerate your skin cells, it also helps to increase bloodflow and lessen the appearance of cellulite. Cool, right? Keep it in the bathroom for use before your shower. Take care of it and it'll last forever.
Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser (variable, available at chemists and Priceline)
You don't need expensive salon brands to get your skin clean. This baby is a great cleanser, gets rid of all the dirt and will love even the most sensitive of skins. If you're oily, they also have an oily skin cleanser. Best thing is you can pick up 500mL for under $15.
What are YOUR beauty bargain buys?!
