10 under €10 - budget beauty you need to try featuring Dove, Nivea, L'Oreal, Maybelline & more!

I feature a lot of high end beauty products on the blog but I do also love a good bargain & there are some budget beauty products that I always have in my collection. I have previously posted 20 brilliant beauty products under €20 but today I thought I would go one further and post about 10 beauty products that are priced at less than €10 and should be in your collection. I have linked to a lot of the products on the Boots website but I am not sponsored or affiliated with them, it is purely for convenience if you want to buy any of the products.  Let's get started!

Dove Advanced Hair Series Oxygen Moisture Root Lift Spray: This is a brilliant product for adding volume to the hair without weighing it down, making it greasy or leaving it crispy. The nozzle means that it can be sprayed directly at the roots and then you need to massage it in before blow-drying. It is usually priced at €8.99, but is currently reduced to €4.49 in Boots.

L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oils Nourishing Shampoo: Elvive is a great range of haircare with a range to suit all hair needs including oily, colour protection, repair, volume. I love the Extraordinary Oils range because it suits my dry hair. It smells good, lathers well and rinses easily without leaving any residue. The 250ml bottle costs €4.49 and this 400ml bottle is priced at €6.29 but it is often on offer in Boots or the supermarket.

L'Oreal Elnett Heat Protect Spray: The final hair product I have here today is also from L'Oreal, but from the Elnett range. This is a great spray to use on damp hair before blow-drying. It protects the hair from heat damage and adds some volume but I would say that you should be careful not to be too heavy-handed with it as it can leave some build up if you use too much. It is usually priced at €9.99, but is currently reduced to €7 in Boots.

Nivea Q10 Plus Firming Body Lotion: This will come as no surprise to any of my regular readers because there is barely a month that goes by where I don't feature a Nivea body lotion in my empties posts! I have used Nive body lotions since I was a teenager. They absorb easily so there is no waiting around to get dressed, they are light in texture yet very moisturising and you can't argue with the price! This 400ml bottle is priced at €9.99 in Boots but I picked one up last week in Tesco at half price.

Nivea Nourishing Hand Cream: Another Nivea product! I always have a few hand creams on the go and this travel size is perfect for in my handbag. It is moisturising, non-greasy and has a nice fresh scent. A 100ml tube is priced at €4.29 but I bought this travel size for less than €2 and it was on 3 for 2 - result!

Soap & Glory Sugar Crush Hand Sanitizer: Another handbag essential is a hand sanitizer. I love these mini bottles because the 100ml bottles that some other brands sell are sometimes too big for my handbags but the 50ml is a perfect size. This scent is quite strong - sugar and citrus combined but if that isn't to your taste, there are a number of other scent variations available. This is priced at €3.50.

Maybelline Superstay 7 day gel effect nail polish: Simply put, this is the best range of budget nail polishes you will find, They are opaque in one coat, although I tend to use two. They give a glossy finish, are long-lasting and the wide brush means no streaking. If you don't own any of these polishes, do yourself a favour & buy some! They are priced at €6.79 each but are often on offer.

Maybelline Master Shape Brow: I like the waxy formula of this product and the fine nib on one end  is perfect for mimicking the look of brow hair and love that there is a spoolie in the other end. I do tend to favour retractable brow products but at €4.79, you can't have everything! 

Seventeen Eyeshadow Mono: These eyeshadows are buttery soft (almost a little too soft as they can crack quite easily), very pigmented and easy to blend. The wear time isn't as long as some of my higher end brands, but at €4.89, I'm not complaining. Seventeen is a brand that used to be quite over-looked but over the past year, they have re-packaged their products and have launched a lot of new products so they are definitely worth checking out.

Max Factor Miracle Touch Creamy Blusher: I had to include this blush because although I really don't like the cheap packaging, the product inside is beautiful. I have the shade soft pink and it is such a pretty colour. Don't let the fact that it is a cream blush scare you because the texture makes it very easy to work with and it won't disturb your base product. It is priced at €9.99 and Max Factor products are currently on 3 for 2 in Boots.
