Beauty on a Budget

As winter is fast approaching we have found some of the best beauty buys to keep you under budget and still feeling and looking fabulous. These new products are perfect to keep our skin smelling great and super hydrated over the winter months without breaking the budget.

Sally Hansen Color Quick Fast Dry Nail Color Pen

No your eyes weren’t deceiving you – you did just read “quick fast dry nail color pen”! This is one amazing product and we see a lot of products but this one caught our eye as almost too good to be true. We tested the 04 Hot Pink colour and it completely amazed us, it goes on so easily, the colour is gorgeous, the texture is just like nail polish out of bottle plus it dries really quickly and seems to last longer than normal nail polish. Just click colour and go! It will be so hard to go back to boring old nail polish in a bottle after this baby has found its way into our beauty bags. For the busy traveller this will be a must have and we will be surprised if you can resist having only one colour in your bag as there is a fabulous range of 18 colours to choose from and really reasonably priced too at under $15 each. Check them out when you are in Priceline or your local chemist.

Pantene Pro V 3 minute Miracle treatment

At this time of the year when you hair has had months of sun, surf, colour and partying over the summer it is the perfect time to try this little wonder treatment from Pantene. The 3 minute miracle treatment is so easy to use and works like a treatment at the hairdressers leaving your hair feeling light and bouncy and really easy to manage. The concentrated treatment cream helps repair damaged hair, split ends and dry and brittle hair from too much hard living, just pop it in on after you have shampooed and then leave on for the required 3 mins then voila clean, gorgeous hair raring to go.
