11 Boots Products Under £10 With A 5 Star Rating, Because Who Doesn't Love Value For Money
Ah, Boots. The saviour of British pharmacies. Whether you have memories of being dragged around the brightly-lit store by your mum as a tot or that magical moment when you finally get your hands on an advantage card, there's no doubt that this high street pharmacy is a staple of the British shopping experience. But what makes the store even more appealing — especially when you can't rely on your parents anymore — is the vast array of Boots products for under £10 that are actually pretty decent.
From skincare to perfume, body spray to nail varnish, when you get the itch to find some bargains, Boots have more than enough to choose from. And I'm not just talking about any old products. Oh no. I have compiled a heavenly list of items that are all not only under double-digits, but they also have a five star rating on the Boots website.
These quality products will have you living your absolute best life this summer, and your bank account will definitely be thanking you for it. I mean, if there were ever a time to stock up on copious amounts of L'Aimant and 4711 body fragrance, soothing facial masks, and some refreshing Vichy water spray, it's during a sweltering, British heatwave, right? So go on, treat yourself.

2Coty L'Aimant Parfum de Toilette
Flowery, summery, and timeless, Coty's L'Aimant Perfume is certainly a must have for a romantic day in the sun.

5Soap & Glory Take Your Pink
You've probably received many a Soap & Glory item as a well-deserved Christmas or birthday present. But this cute little set, comprising shower gel, body butter, hand cream, body scrub, and a shower puff, is a real treat. Especially as it's all for a glorious tenner! What a bargain.
6Vichy Water Spray
When you're on the go in this heat, it's a tad inconvenient to carry a fan around with you. That's where Vichy's Thermal Spa Water Spray comes to the rescue. "Naturally enriched with 15 minerals and 13 trace elements", this water spray will not only refresh and cool you down in the sun, but it also "decongests through relieving redness, soothes sensitive skin, [and] reinforces the skin's natural protection." Talk about magic.
7Barry M Pinking Out Loud Nail Polish
You can never have enough nail varnish, can you? Especially when it's a beautiful, pastel gel top coat. Delivering the "look and resilience of pro salon gel nails without a UV lamp of the expense," Barry M's Sunset Nail Paint will give you "long lasting" nails with no need for base coat. Hallelujah!
8Spectrum A10 Brush
You can never have enough brushes, especially when they look as aesthetically pleasing as this. Vegan and cruelty free, this brush is perfect to "sweep highlighter across the cheekbones, brow bonne, bridge of the nose and cupids bow for a subtle glowing finish." Spectrum have also stated that "no Unicorns were harmed in the making of these products." Thank goodness!
Not only will you smell beautiful with this L'Aimant Bodyspray, but it is also a "cool and refreshing way to lightly mist your skin." Similar to the perfume with a combination of "bergamont, neroli, peach, strawberry, rose, ylang-ylang, vanilla, vetiver and sandalwood," what more could you want for just over £1?
