20 Under £20 Beauty Buys We Love This Month

From a new, high-street candle brand to affordable eye make-up and nourishing hair care that promises speedy results, here are the 20 buys under £20 that we’re loving right now…


Heath Shower Mask

Niche brand Heath was founded by a father and son duo who wanted to create a range to tackle daily grooming concerns, accessibly and fuss-free. We love this shower mask which is powered by steam. Formulated with fruit acid AHAs, it works to exfoliate skin, unclog blocked pores and break down dead skin cells while you wash – a great stocking filler for any man in your life.

Dr. Hauschka Translucent Bronzing Tint, £19

If you love a good glow, but find physical tanning products too daunting, don’t worry. Akin to a liquid bronzer, a small amount of this tint blends and adapts to your individual skin tone for natural and believable radiance. It’s also vegan, while the moisturising benefits of plant extracts help keep skin hydrated underneath.

Kiko Lost In Amalfi Glide & Bright Lip Stylo, £10.99

Kiko’s Lip Stylo’s are ideal for anyone who prefers more of a balm texture. The oil and wax blend formula offers a hit of moisture, while coating the lips in a soft veil of colour. Layer it up a few times for a more intense finish. The ‘Red Dress’ shade is suits-all, while ‘Heavy Nude,’ is great if you’re seeking something more subtle and wearable for the daytime.

Centred Unwind Detangling Primer, £18

Knotted hair is no match for this hard-working detangler. Formulated with glycerine, vitamin E and nourishing panthenol, a good misting on damp hair helps to tease knots and boost moisture levels. You’ll find it adds a bit of volume and shine, too, while smoothing out any fluff. A must-try if you’re always on-the-go, but still like your hair to have that sleek, glossy feel.

Earl of East Candles, From £20

If you’ve never heard of the brand Earl of East, it’s time you did. Hand-made in Hackney, they’ve curated an edit of candles formulated with eco-friendly soy wax and zero chemicals. We love Smoke & Musk, which is warming and cosy – ideal for this time of year. If you’re after something more aromatic and floral, opt for Wildflower, which is brimming with jasmine, rose and geranium for a sweeter scent.

Ruby Hammer Precision Eyeliner, £18

When is a black liner ever more than just that? When make-up master Ruby Hammer MBE is behind it. She created this everyday staple with longevity in mind. Jet-black in pigment, it looks and feels glossy and expensive, while the smudge-free formula is seriously impressive. It’s easy to scribble on and blend too, thanks to its creamy, velvet-y texture.

E.L.F. Holy Hydration Make-Up Melting Cleansing Balm, £10

If you love a cleansing balm but are on a budget, then this rich formula from E.L.F is for you. Making light work of even the most stubborn make-up, it melts into skin to transform into an oil, which sweeps away every last bit of dirt. Added hyaluronic acid, ceramides and peptides mean skin gets a hydrating and collagen-plumping boost, too – all for just £10.

Wander Beauty Double Date Lip & Cheek Duo, £19.26

Fans of cream blush, take note. Wander Beauty’s clever duo pot houses both a cheek and lip balm for natural-looking warmth. Great for on-the-go, layer the two together or wear them separately – either way, the gel-like texture will melt into your skin fast, with no need for brushes. Added sunflower seed oil and green tea extract work to lock in moisture and keeps cracked, dry skin at bay, too.

It’s A 10 Miracle Texture Fiber, £17

You may not have heard of It’s A 10 before, but it’s a best-selling brand in the US – and now, we can finally get our hands on it here. Their Texture Fiber has been a huge hit, thanks to its thin, lightweight texture which gives just enough grit, without weighing hair down. Expect extra volume, bounce and a vacation-like wave that’s both natural-looking and lived-in. 

Available At ItsA10Haircare.co.uk


Ruba Beauty Make-Up Blending Sponges, £7.99

New brand Ruba Beauty has just landed, bringing with it a set of impressive tools, and this blending sponge has become our go-to. The three-sided edge makes it a great option for blending, contouring and defining. Use the slanted-edge of the sponge for more control, and the smaller edges for any hard-to-reach areas – think under the eyes and around the nose. The larger surface can be used for all-over buffing. The texture is soft, too, so application is always seamless.

Sleek Make-Up Brow Laminate Gel in Clear, £5.49

The laminated brow trend shows no sign of waning and the easiest way to keep your arches fluffed up, but still groomed, is with a clear gel. This new one from Sleek creates the illusion of a fuller and more sculpted brow – just start by using it backwards against the natural direction of your hair growth, before going the other way and smoothing everything into place. Added Hemp Seed Oil provides extra hold, as well as hydration so you don’t get any of that tell-tale crispiness. 

Available At SleekMakeup.com



Mark Hill Blow Dry Cream, £6.66 (was £9.99)

We’ve only just discovered this blow dry cream, but safe to say it’s a luxurious treat. A small amount run through damp strands will leave hair soft, shiny and more voluminous – all without weighing it down. Expect frizz to be more manageable too, thanks to organic Moroccan argan oil which smooths and conditions. The best bit? You can recycle the bottle when you’re finished so waste is kept to a minimum. 

Available At MarkHillHair.com


Comfort Zone Water Soul Face & Body Wash, £18

Designed to be used on hair and the body, this does-it-all wash contains olive oil and gentle, biodegradable exfoliators which soften, while also getting rid of dirt. It foams up ever so slightly too, so it never feels stripping or abrasive. Uplifting and softly scented, it provides a bracing experience every time, but with silky-soft results.

Available At LookFantastic.com


Catrice True Skin Hydrating Foundation, £6.95

Affordable foundations don’t get much better than this. Created with hyaluronic acid and watermelon seed oil, it has the kind of silky, lightweight texture that blends easily, delivering believable coverage which is dewy and fresh-looking. Great for perfecting your skin’s texture, without coating it too heavily – you’ll still see freckles peeking through. 

Available At JustMyLook.com


treStiQue Highlighters, £14 (was £16)

One of our favourite new launches, these small, highlighting crayons are easy-to-use, with a creamy formula that skims over the skin lightly, so you never deposit too much pigment. Scribble them onto your cheeks to see the glossy sheen appear. Unlike other illuminators, there’s minimal shimmer, too, so it never looks too over the top, while the in-built sponge means blending is a breeze. Use only a small amount on your brow bone, cupid’s bow and eyelids for an all over glow. 

Available At Revolve.com


KVD Vegan Beauty Dazzle Eyeshadow Sticks,

We can’t get enough of the pigment payoff from these Vegan Eyeshadow Sticks. Loaded with light-reflecting pearls, you can sweep these on directly from the bullet for a 3D effect that catches the light. They have a clever water formula, too, which not only feels refreshing, but dries down into a smooth, on-trend, glossy finish. An easy way to take on glitter for the festive season. 

Available At Boots.com


Tanologist Gradual Tan Lotion, £11

If the idea of an instant tan instils panic, this gradual formula is the way to go. Ideal for those wanting a subtle, sun-kissed tint, it’s also brimming with nourishing oils to keep skin smooth and hydrated. Plus, unlike similar iterations, the results last for at least three to four days, so you can expect it to go the distance. 

Available At BeautyBay.com


Typology Facial Scrub, £18

It can be hard to find physical face scrubs that don’t aggravate the skin, which is why we’re loving this new one from Typology. With small, circular beads, it whisks away dirt and grime, while the gel formula transforms into a silky, nourishing oil that simultaneously hydrates and plumps. Great for those prone to oiliness, or anyone looking to refine and smooth open pores. 

Available At Typology.com



Aveda Pramasana Scalp Brush, £17

It’s no secret Aveda do some of the best hairbrushes, and their latest offering is no exception. With firm, yet gentle, bristles, this gently exfoliates the scalp as you go, helping to loosen product build-up and get rid of any impurities. The benefits don’t end there – it’s designed to increase micro-circulation too, so hair growth is encouraged over time. A must-have for all hair types.

BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Mini Ornament, £9.60

Still looking for Christmas gifts? This mini ornament is guaranteed to please any beauty obsessive. Inside you’ll find BECCA’s much-loved Skin Perfector, which was created to suit all skin tones, while subtly highlighting with a metallic sheen. Apply it with a damp beautyblender for a more intense pigment payoff or sweep it over the highest points of your face with a buffing brush for a subtler effect.
