My Saturday night in: Cheap pamper sesh with my boyfriend

It’s coming up to Christmas, I’ve got a lot of uni work to do and I don’t have a lot of money to go out. Which means I’m stressed and poor.

I haven’t been looking after my skin as much as I’d like to as I decided to wait til Christmas so that I could get nicer skincare that won’t cause my face to breakout, however seen as it’s ‘that time of the month’ my skin isn’t the best it could be.

I decided to go to a shop called Body Care as I know they do some decent, cheap products and I really wanted to try tinting my eyebrows at home.

Products used:

  • Beauty Formulas tea tree deep cleansing nose pore strips (99p)
  • Colorsport 30 day brow tint (£2.99)
  • Beauty Formulas charcoal clay mask (99p)

Step 1


Me and my boyfriend used the nose strips first to get rid of any blackheads and dry skin we had. These are great because they do what they say on the packaging and they’re only 99p, which is a bargain for these as for some reason they are so much more expensive everywhere else (£6 at Boots!!).

Step 2


We did the face mask next which was extremely refreshing. This was also a complete bargain so I can’t really complain about the results as it basically does what you expect. I like how it makes your face feel cold because to me that means that it’s doing something even if it’s not something that makes my skin look amazing and that it’s not a complete waste of money.

Step 3

My boyfriend didn’t follow this step as he already has nice eyebrows. This is the second time I’ve tinted my eyebrows. Before starting the tinting I plucked and shaped my brows a bit. As you can tell my brows are extremely patchy due to over-waxing them (by a pro btw, I didn’t do them myself) and I like the naturally thicker look so I am growing them and filling them in with the tint.

The tint worked as in it made my brows darker however it didn’t fill in the patchiness which is fair enough, it wasn’t expensive and it more or less did what it said it would do.

Overall I feel I’ve had a successful pamper sesh, especially because of how cheap the products were. My boyfriend seems to enjoy the soft skin they have given him and I’ll continue to use the products until I can afford something better. I’ll also use them when my skin is looking bad. So if you’re down-in-the-dumps like me then I reccomend!!
