How big is your beauty budget? Are you constantly spending more than you intended on skincare and makeup? Maybe it’s time to have a think about what products you can replace with simple pharmacy alternatives!
While we all love indulging in expensive French or American skincare, it’s easy to overlook the products available at your local shops. In this month’s Pharmacy Finds we’re sharing four of the bellabox team’s favourite chemist bargains.
Dry Feet And Heels: Dermal Therapy Heel Balm
bb Brand Partnership Manager Anna’s Pick
Cracked heels aren’t exactly a hot topic of conversation, which is a pity because bb Brand Partnership Manager Anna has found the ultimate product to fix them. Dermal Therapy Heel Balm is available in pharmacies across Australia and contains 25% Urea to soften dry, cracked heels and feet. You’ll never be embarrassed by your feet again.
Easy Hydration: Vaseline Spray And Go Moisturiser
bb Global Brand Director Sam’s Pick
Next time you’re standing in the middle of a pharmacy aisle looking for a new body moisturiser, just remember two words: Vaseline Spray. Our Global Brand Director Sam has tried every lotion, cream and moisturiser out there and come up with her ultimate recommendation. Vaseline Intensive Care Spray Moisturiser. Just spray it on for silky smooth skin in seconds.
Itchy Summer Skin: Natralus Paw Paw Pure Gel
bb Beauty Editor Julia’s Pick
Insect bites, sunburn, rashes, grazes – in summer these are daily occurrences! For me in particular, it’s mosquito bites. If there’s a mosquito around you can bet it’s going to snack on me. My pharmacy find is Natralus Paw Paw Pure Gel, which combines the benefits of organic paw paw, organic aloe vera and vitamin E to soothe irritated skin without drying. It definitely stops me from scratching.
The Eye Enhancer: Maybelline The Falsies Mascara
bb Brand Coordinator Rosie’s Pick
Mascara is a beauty staple – but did you know that you should throw it away just three months after opening to prevent the spread of bacteria? Depending on your budget, you might want to rethink the high-end mascara after hearing that. Luckily bellabox staffer Rosie has you covered. She uses Maybelline Volum’ Express The Falsies, and her lashes always look HUGE! It’s great for everyday or evening wear, and it’s available at your local pharmacy right now.
