Five Under £5 April 2016

Last month got away from me & I totally missed the Five Under £5 post but I’m back and I have some great things to share with you. If you want to get involved and link up your monthly finds then head over to Julia’s blog at Rainbeaubelle

Pig Nose Black Head Mask

Korean skincare comes in the best packaging! I included the TonyMoly Sheet Masks in my February post & saw these recommended to me after I had checked out. I am obsessed with getting rid of blackheads (TMI) This is a 3 step mask & although its all in Korean there is a step by step diagram on the back which is easy to follow. I bought 4 packs & only have one left. Its safe to say I really like them & they’re very affordable despite being sent from Hong Kong.

Cute Sticky Notes

HEMA Sticky Notes

I am terrible at remembering things so I like to stick post it notes around my house & even have some in my car just to remind me to do certain things. These cute ones are from a Dutch shop called HEMA but don’t panic they have not only opened a few stores here (in London) but you can also order online from their shop. They carry a great affordable selection of stationery & so many other things. I often spend ages browsing the site and filling a very large basket. The arrows are also post it notes too, I couldn’t resist them.

Metallic Washi Tape

Now this is becoming quite a habit, I purchase at least two new rolls a month and have a growing collection. This is my newest addition and my current favourite. I order mine from eBay as they have such a massive selection and its pretty good quality.

Collection Lip Crayon

Collection Work The Colour Lip Butter 

I really like lippies in crayon form, I find them easy to apply, travel with and they are so fuss free. This is one from Collection which is a Boots only brand and their makeup is very affordable but don’t be put off by the cheap looking packaging because the products are very good quality. This is in the shade Vintage Rose, its a very pretty peach and perfect for the Spring. It has a slight glossy finish, feels comfortable on the lips. Oh & you don’t need to sharpen these – they just twist up! Easy peasy.

    1. The Collection Lip Crayons are amazing – great if like me you prefer a no fuss / effortless lip product.

    1. Sheet masks are my discovery of 2016 – I have a stash of these TonyMoly ones – if you get the chance I highly recommend checking them out.

  1. I also adore washi tape Vicki! It’s kind of addictive as it just makes everything look cuter, from birthday present wrapping to postcards stuck on a wall. And I must check out Hema, we have Tiger Stores here in Belfast which I think is similar. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Yes, HEMA is quite like Tiger. Its way to easy to spend ages in there and come out with a bag full of things you didn’t go in for. Its like Aladdin’s cave

  2. I have read about Hema on your blog before Vicki and still haven’t bought anything from there, I am going to go and have a proper look now. You’re right, the Korean packaging is ace isn’t it? Worth it just for that I’d say. My skin is suffering at the moment so it could do with a bit more TLC and probably sleep! xx Thanks for joining in
