Isn’t it an amazing feeling when you find cheap beauty products that are just as good as an expensive version?
We’re big believers in getting more for your money when it comes to your cosmetic spend, which is why we couldn’t be more excited about Asda’s latest beauty launch – a super affordable moisturiser that’s reportedly comparable to Clarins’ HydraQuench Cream.
The Sun reports that Asda’s £6 Nspa Ultra-Hydrate Cream matches up to Clarin’s pricier product in terms of its 12-hour hydration promise and light texture, and even contains some of the same ingredients.
Asda describes the moisturiser as a ‘an ultra-hydrating cream developed to relieve dry skin, leaving it soft and smooth. Perfect to use when the changing weather can drain the skin’s moisture or when skin experiences dry patches.’
The dermatalogically tested cream is said to be suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin. Both Clarins’ and Asda’s pots are sold in 50ml quantities, so you get the same amount of product for your money.
When the Nspa tub was compared to the Clarins’ version, which costs £30 more, at a testing house, both products left the skin feeling ‘intensely moisturised, fresh and radiant, without leaving behind an oily residue’.
So, if you regularly fork out for a spendy facial moisturiser, you could save yourself (more than!) a pretty penny by switching to the cheaper cream.
Asda aren’t the only supermarket to be offering a fab range of cheap beauty products – Aldi recently launched a hot cloth cleanser that’s said to be just as effective as Liz Earle’s famous balm, at a fraction of the price.
The £3.99 cleanser has been flying off the shelves after it was reported that it was a dupe for the £14 Liz Earle product – and it even comes with its own muslin cloth, just like the original.
