Beauty on a Budget : Aqueous Cream

Beauty on a Budget: Part I
Aqueous Cream

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you'll know I'm a student. And yes the student life is wonderful, not many commitments, no paying taxe blah blah. But the major down side is the budget. For me, living in Oxford is expensive! So after paying my rent, I dont always have a lot of spare cash. That's where being a beauty junkie/addict/obsessed freak, It can be quite difficult to stretch the pennies. So I've come up with a series, giving tips and tricks to Beauty on a Budget! 

Want to know my cheap and cheerful secret to soft elbows and knees? Yep, Aqueous cream. Most of us has some of this stuff hiding in the back of our cupboards somewhere, and it's a great alternative for all those expensive lotions and potions for your dry bits. 

At under £5 for a tub of this thick white cream will last you FOREVER without breaking the bank. A dollop of Aqueous cream on dry knees and elbows after a shower relieves that itchy dry skin which is so irritating to all of us. As well as being great for rashes, eczema and other skin irritations.

Admittedly - it doesn't smell sweet and fruity like other more luxurious lotions, but if you're on a budget. This is the ticket.
