Beauty products with a tiny price. Review by @AbbiieLeigh 0 221

Are those bad skin days weighing you down? No matter how much make up you put on you can always seem them pesky spots or blackhead. Ew right? Oh and is your hair dry and not going the way you want because of winter? I’m here to tell you that there is a solution. All it takes is just under £10, patients and drinking plenty of water. Simple right?

On my own quest to get clear skin after the many winter months of hiding my skin with darker make up I have decided to get a better care routine. I have searched low and high across the internet for a product that suits my skin but I had no luck. I started to give up until- I went to tescos!

 So everyone thinks to get perfect skin you need a huge bank balance, well I think not. So lets start with the basics.

 Firstly you need a good scrub for your face that will clear your pores, fight oil and help to tighten them back up. Here is T-zone. After two uses my skin looks dramatically better. The smell is nice, the feel after use is amazing and it comes at a lovely price of £1.50. Not so bad is it? A few instructions for this product would to be

  • Wipe all make up off before use

  • Wet your skin with warm water

  • Gently rub product into areas most affected

  • Wash with warm water then cold (cold tightens the pores back) 

  • Pat your face down with a clean towel.

 Who knew it was that easy? I recommend using this product twice a week.

Okay so now we’re becoming pore free we need something to make sure our face doesn’t dry out. This product is simply wonderful coming at a price of £1.50- I used this as a teenager until they discontinued it for a while. My Skin- No Shine Mattifying moisturise suits ANY skin types. That’s right ladies yes it does. It also smells beautiful with kiwi and raspberry extracts.

  • Only apply to clean skin

  • Use small amounts as it spreads well 

  • Apply to neck area


p> Also My Skin has a gentle face scrub that you can use instead of the T-Zone. It has honey extracts which honey has been proven to remove blackheads

Now if you get dry lips in the winter this next product is a must have-in-your-bag kinda product. It’s the Nivea hydrocare lip balm. It smoothes on quickly, leaves no nasty white bits and last for an hour each time. It gives your lips a pop and puts the moisturiser back where it belongs. This product is £1 at any pound shop or £1.50 in tescos.

Okay so we’re feeling fabulous right now with our steals and hidden gifts from the beauty gods right? All we need is shiny/ strong hair. This product isn’t in tescos but you can get it from ebay/amazon for a price of £1.50 each. It a deep/protein conditioning back that restores damaged and dry hair. I’ve recently used this product and seen instant results but just be careful to wash out properly or you’ll have greasy hair! Ick.

 Ladies you can thank me later! Go out and get these steals and send me your photos and @AbbiieLeigh on twitter for your chance to be featured on the website.

We are extremely excited to announce multi-million selling producer and DJ Calvin Harris, in what is a BRITs first, is to make his debut BRITs performance in a unique collaboration with 2018 British Female and British Breakthrough winner Dua Lipa and 3x BRIT winners Sam Smith and Rag‘n’Bone Man. They join the previously announced George Ezra, Little Mix, Jorja Smith and The 1975.

As announced on 12 January during ITV’s one-hour special ‘The BRITs Are Coming’, Calvin Harris is nominated for British Single and British Artist Video of the Year for his collaboration with Dua Lipa on ‘One Kiss’ – which was the biggest-selling single of 2018 and spent 8 weeks at the top of the charts. In addition, Dua Lipa is nominated in both categories for her single ‘IDGAF’ bringing her total number of nominations this year to four. Sam Smith is up for British Male.

Jason Iley, BRITs Chairman and Chairman and CEO of Sony Music UK & Ireland said: “I’m delighted that Calvin will be performing at The BRITs for the first time ever; he is a global superstar who has created some of the biggest hits with the biggest artists in the world. The stats say it all! He will be joined by a trio of incredible British talent – Dua Lipa, Sam Smith and Rag‘n’Bone Man – each of whom are individually amazing performers and have been lighting up the UK charts. This will undoubtedly be one of the stand out moments of the night.”

Calvin Harris, the multi-million selling global superstar DJ and producer will be making his BRITs debut in 2019. With 240 million global sales, five UK Top Ten albums (two of which topped the charts), 14 UK No. 1 singles, 33 UK Top Ten singles and massive collaborations with some of the biggest and most exciting artists in the world over the past decade including Rihanna, Pharrell Williams and Ariana Grande, Calvin’s trajectory over the past decade sees no sign of slowing down.

Dua Lipa – who is the most nominated female artist in BRITs history for the second consecutive year – returns to the 2019 show. Her eponymous debut Top 5 album produced seven singles, including the Top Ten hits ‘Be The One’, ‘IDGAF’ and the UK No. 1 single ‘New Rules’, which she performed at The BRITs last year; ‘New Rules’ has since spent a record breaking 45 weeks in the US pop chart and made her the youngest solo female artist to have amassed one billion views on YouTube. Dua Lipa is also the first and only female artist to have four lead tracks accumulate over 500 million Spotify streams. Dua is nominated four times, with two nominations for Best Single and two nominations for British Artist Video of the Year, for her solo track ‘IDGAF’ and for the Calvin Harris track ‘One Kiss’ – a collaboration which resulted in Dua achieving the longest-running No. 1 single for a UK female artist this century.

Multiple BRIT, GRAMMY and Oscar winner Sam Smith returns to The BRITs this year, to join Calvin Harris. With a whopping seven UK No. 1 singles and two UK No. 1 albums under his belt, the 2014 BRITs Critics’ Choice winner is also celebrating having achieved combined global album sales of 20 million with his 2014 debut, ‘In The Lonely Hour’ and last year’s ‘The Thrill Of It All’. Calvin and Sam’s track ‘Promises’ went to No. 1 upon release last summer. Sam is nominated for British Male Solo Artist this year.

Three-time BRIT winner Rag’n’Bone Man – the second artist to win both BRITs Critics’ Choice and British Breakthrough awards after Sam Smith, and the only artist to win both in the same year – returns to The BRITs as part of this incredible performance line up. His debut album Human debuted at No. 1 upon release in 2017, becoming the fastest selling male debut of the decade, subsequently achieving triple platinum status in the UK and selling more than three million globally. Rag’n’Bone Man and Calvin’s collaboration ‘Giant’ went straight into the Top 10 in the UK singles chart upon its release in January this year.

We’re so excited to announce No. 1 selling British band and double BRIT 2019 nominees The 1975 as performers at The BRIT Awards 2019, alongside the already announced George Ezra, Little Mix and Jorja Smith.

Jason Iley, BRITs Chairman and Chairman and CEO of Sony Music UK & Ireland said: “Following their critically acclaimed, third consecutive No.1 album last year, I am pleased to welcome The 1975 back to the BRITs stage. After a fantastic year for the band, it’s great to see them join an already incredible line up, for what is sure to be an amazing night.”

The 1975 said: “We’re humbled to be nominated for two BRIT Awards and are excited to be coming back to The O2 to perform on the night. It will be a brilliant show!”
