19 Boots Products Under £10 That Prove Your School Make-up Bag Contained Some Gems After All

Boots

When thinking about cult beauty products, it's easy to picture innovations from brands like Glossier or Drunk Elephant. In other words, products that are either only sold abroad, on the expensive side, or not available in any IRL locations in the UK. But why do we overlook the products that are right beneath our noses? These cult beauty products from Boots are under £10 each and proof that it's worth looking closer to home.

Boots has been offering up affordable skincare and make-up buys that really work since its inception in 1849. Stepping into the bright white store interior conjures up memories of accompanying your parents on their weekly shopping haul and, later, of your own teenage years experimenting with horribly bright eyeshadows and glittery body lotion.

Along with its own award-winning No7 range, the high street stalwart stocks every low-cost brand under the sun. And it's always adding to its already huge list. Earlier this year, Boots launched American brand CYO and its Matte Foundation, which has already earned rave reviews from beauty editors both here and across the pond.

Of course, we can't forget the nation's tried and tested favourites. L'Oreal's Elnett hairspray has been going strong for years, as has the likes of Cetaphil's extra gentle cleanser and the one and only Sudocrem. From Real Techniques' five star brushes and sponges to Kim Kardashian's favourite Bio-Oil, here are the other cult beauty products you can pick up from Boots for less than a tenner.

5. Maybelline Dream Velvet Foundation

9. No7 Protect & Perfect Lip Care

11. Bio-Oil

Even Kim Kardashian's a fan of this one. Designed to improve the appearance of things like scars and stretch marks, all it requires is a twice daily application.

12. Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

Both make-up artists and models use this mascara on the regular. As well as doing the obvious, it also conditions lashes to keep them as healthy as can be.

13. Palmer's Coconut Oil Hand Cream

14. Boots Essentials Curl Creme

17. Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick

A lot of these products have been proving their worth for years. Instead of spending loads on an iffy item, why not put the above to the test to see if their cult status will really live on?
