'Luxury' Products That Are Actually Worth The Money

'Luxury' Products That Are Actually Worth The Money

Having been raised with a Cockney as a Mother, I always have at least one eye firmly fixed on finding a bargain. I will never pay over the odds for a product that isn't 'worth it', and if I find something that works and is super expensive I will always do my best to study the ingredients lists and find a lower priced dupe. 

The beauty industry is booming and the customer is demanding. Girls (and guys) who have grown up on social media want products that makes them look as good as the Instagram Models they follow, and they want it to be affordable. Usually the market caters for them and there are truly excellent and active ingredient rich products out there that are both inexpensive and produce results

That being said, there are a select few luxury products I have found that actually warrant their healthy price tag and have transformative effects that are unmatched by any low to mid-price product. 

Your pockets will not thank you, but your face certainly will.

Stay beautiful,

When I first tried this product I have to say I was sceptical. I doubted that an 'at home' peel could produce a result of any worth; but I was wrong. Somehow this peel manages to visibly make a layer of skin melt off your face without leaving it red and chapped. As gross as it sounds, you will shed like a Snake - but unlike Retinol you wont continue peeling once it washes off. The result is clear, glowing and baby smooth skin. It's also a perfect alternative for people whose skin breaks out with a Retinol or Retin-A. - £85.00

When I purchased this serum I could almost hear the screeches of "decadent Capitalist Pig" from my fellow shoppers. Priced at £62.00 for only 15ml of product it is astoundingly expensive for such a tiny bottle - BUT...it works (unlike most eye products on the market). You get the combined power of both acids and Retinol in a way that's gentle enough for use on and around the eye. The Ferulic acid has also been proven to enhance the effectiveness of the Retinol, making it one of the most powerful and transformative products on the market for combating and eradicating lines around the eye, without ending up puffy or greasy. Our eyes are usually the first place, on most of our faces, that become a victim to the sands of time; so incorporating such a powerful serum into your routine will ensure a youthful appearance within a matter of weeks. with effects that last years. If ageing and lines around the eyes are one of your primary concerns this serum is really your only option. Although it's a small bottle you only need a drop. It will last a lot longer than you would anticipate. 

Priced at a whopping £105.00 this is certainly a luxury for the majority. But if you have perpetually parched and dry skin this is an instantaneous rescue remedy. It also caters for those who are dry but still suffer with acne or frequent breakouts; a market within skincare that is prevalent and often ignored. Although this mask is super moisturising it isn't greasy or clogging making it perfect for almost any skin type. If I wear this mask overnight I will wake up with skin that looks as clear as glass. It will also double as a moisturiser for dryer days as it penetrates and does not 'sit' on top of the skin. The way I justify this to myself is that I end up using far less foundation and concealer because my skin ends up so clear and glowing. That maths works out...right?
