Well over the past few weeks I have been testing out some of my recent purchases and I thought I would compare expensive vs the cheaper option to see which is best. Surely bigger price tag means better product?
The Body Shop Seaweed Pore Cleansing Facial Exfoliator (for oily combination skin). 75ml. £8.00.
This toner 'cools, refreshes and leaves skin shine free'. Well I was dissapointed with this product, I honestly felt like I had got some cotton wool ran it under the tap and wiped my face with it, leaving my skin feeling damp and not really refreshed. When I think of toner I think of exactly what they have described but for me this did not refresh my skin and took quite a while to soak into my skin. My face felt clean after using it and the packaging is nice. Luckily I used one of my Boots No7 £5 off vouchers for this so it only cost me £3.00 I still wouldn't get it again even at that price. Overall I give this product 4/10.
I have to say this is an absolute bargain! This toner does everything a toner promises, my skin feels cooled, refreshed and very clean, it also smells gorgeous. Yes the packaging is just standard compared to the long elegant packaging of the No 7 Toner but for 75p who cares! Overall I give this product 9/10!
I am glad I tested both the more expensive and cheap versions of these products I wouldn't have usually picked up a Tesco toner I am very happy I did as I have now saved myself some money!
Have you found any own store brands that have really impressed you?
