I was in Tesco a couple of weeks ago for my usual shopping and found a bargain bin of reduced items – in fact, it’s not unusual to find me routing around them.
I found a few things I wanted to take home but managed to control myself.
I am always on the look out for impressive hydrating products after discovering some fine lines I never realised I had until I lost 2 stone. I cannot help but feel guilty for not drinking enough water while I set out to change the way I looked.
I bought two facial cleansers for 99p in case I did like it and a glycolic fix scrub for £1.98 – originally I thought it was a Tesco’s own brand that was end of line, so wasn’t expecting great things.
I later saw an independent ad for this brand in a magazine, so realised it was un-linked to Tesco and is still selling elsewhere around the £4 – £15 mark.
I am in love with foaming cleansing washes at the minute but after recently purchasing Bobbi Brown’s Beauty Rules book, it advises those with dry/dehydrated skin should use a cream based cleanser, not foaming. Foam cleansers are preferably for oily skin to dry you out.
However, the habit of cleansing the face while in the bath is far more convenient than with cotton wool.

I ditched my 99p Home Bargains Foaming Face Wash immediately to try my new purchase out. Although I love the squeaky clean feel of the latter, it has been hydrating at all.
The glycolic scrub fix has also been another gem of a purchase. The exfoliation is very gentle and now much more preferred over my £1 cyclax Apricot scrub which now feels too harsh for me. And what is even better, it feels intensely moisturising.

The glycolic acid is meant to be like a subtle acid peel but without the hefty price tag and process endurance.
The range is no longer stocked in Tesco at this clearance price, so if you are also looking for something that works, you can find the products here.

I do recommend these products if you are facing new lines from your weight loss.
