4 Beauty Products For The Budget Conscious | Clozette

Whether you are a student with limited budget or saving up for that dream vacation, you don’t need to sacrifice looking good as these four products will deliver goodness without hurting your wallet.


The Face Shop's Power Long Lasting Sun Cream 

Part of the Natural Sun Eco Range, The Face Shop's Power Long Lasting Sun Cream is primarily a sunblock but it also works well as a makeup base. Its non-stick formula is very ideal for the hot weather and keeps your makeup intact as it effectively controls sebum production so you don’t have to worry about sweat and oil disintegrating your on-fleek face makeup! 

Best thing about it, its tinted color can also function as a sheer foundation, just right for that sunscreened but no makeup look. This multifunctional product retails for S$29.90.

Etude House Play 101 4-Way Multi Brush

If you don’t feel like buying too many eye makeup brushes or just want to have a handy brush you can bring every day in your pouch, the Etude House Play 101 4-Way Multi Brush is an ideal choice. It’s a Blending, Edge Liner, Smudge, and Gradation brush all in one. All you have to do is change the ends depending on your needs. 

With that in your purse, you don’t have to worry about having to tag along four brushes. Best thing about it all? It’s affordable at S$17.

Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip Crème

Lip crèmes are all the rage now and one of our favourites has got to the Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip Crème. It has a comfortable texture that glides easily on your lips, doesn’t smudge, and holds well even after eating. This is available in Singapore via online retailers for around S$13 (shipping not included).

Honey and Sugar Jelly Body Scrub

Need a well-deserved body scrub at home? Then indulge with Skinfood’s Honey and Sugar Jelly Body Scrub! The texture of this scrub is similar to petroleum jelly with sugar granules. 

And if you think it might be too abrasive on your skin, don’t be intimidated because the granules actually feel gentle on the skin due to the jelly-like consistency of the product. It also isn’t sticky when rinsed and leaves your skin feeling smooth and fresh. Priced around S$12 to S$15 at Qoo10.sg, this 200g scrub is a treat to dry and flaky skin.

Most people say that we shouldn’t take long showers because it can dry out our skin. But if you’ve had a long day, you know how comforting and relaxing showers can be, especially warm showers, and how you just want to stay under it forever.

If body acne or irritation is something that constantly troubles you, then dry brushing will solve all of that! This natural bristle brush exfoliates your body’s skin to help get rid of dead cells that might have accumulated and its massaging properties help promote cell renewal! However, never brush too hard because you will just be damaging your skin even more! Stay patient and brush gently to get the most out of this tool.
Bath & Massage Oil

If your showers are your only time to relax and decompress, using a massage oil at the beginning of your shower routine will immediately calm your senses and relax your muscles. Simply pour enough oil in your hand, wet it a little bit to form a lather, and feel your stress melt away!

Konjac Sponge

A konjac sponge is a godsend for those with sensitive skin, or anyone who just wants a gentle cleansing tool. This extremely soft sponge effectively removes surface dirt and unclogs your pores without irritating it or stripping it! Use this in the middle of your shower as the warm steam opens up your pores.

Charcoal Face Mask

Masking while in the shower is a perfect way for you to get two things done at once! The warm steam of the water will open up your pores which will allow your face mask to thoroughly clean out your pores to prevent blemishes from popping up!

Skin Conditioner

If you want to moisturize your skin, but don’t like the sticky feeling of body lotion and you’re always on-the go, then the NIVEA In-Shower Skin Conditioner is the perfect product to use while bathing! Your wet skin will easily absorb its silky texture, and once you rinse it off, it leaves a nourishing touch to give you that light, moisturized feeling throughout the day!
