5 beauty and skincare favourites from Asda

Today on the blog I'm going to be sharing five of my beauty and skincare favourites that are available to buy from Asda. If you're a regular reader of my blog you'll know I've been trying out lots of new bits from them recently so I'm excited to share some of my top picks with you!



My first favourite is actually a face mask and it's their papaya and hops brightening and radiance peeling mask. This exfoliating mask aims to soften and brighten any dull, lacklustre skin by removing any dead skin cells. It's also enriched with papaya and hops to help reveal a more radiant and brighter complection!

I don't know about you but I absolutely love peel off masks, there's definitely something weirdly satisfying about them isn't there?! I would say the main thing I noticed with this one was how radiant it helped to make my skin look, it really did help to give a natural healthy looking glow to my skin whilst also leaving it feeling super soft. I think this one would be perfect to use during the summer months when the sun finally makes an appearance. 

Besides the practicality this mask smells amazing too, it definitely smells good enough to eat and is the perfect fruity summer scent! Another bonus is that the mask costs just £1.50, which I think is very afforable for what you are getting.




Next up is another skincare favourite and it's their rejuvenating serum from the nspa expert collection. This product aims to reduce the appearance of wrinkles whilst also improving skin firmness too. Now I can't talk about the wrinkle side of things as I am only twenty one, however I do have some fine lines on my forehead! I've been using this product once a night, and that seems to be enough to let it work its magic. After just over a week you could already see that the fine lines on my forehead were becoming less visible, which I think is amazing! I've been using the product for a while now, and it hasn't cleared them up completely which I wasn't expecting but it has definitely made a noticeable difference, so I was very pleased there.

One of my favourite things about the serum though, is how much more radiant it's made my skin look. I suffer from dry skin myself so it's pretty hard to get my skin looking radiant without using makeup, but this has massively helped with that. It adds a lovely subtle healthy glow to the skin which is perfect with the warmer months approaching, as that's a time I usually wear alot less makeup. So, if you're looking for a serum to help brighten up your skin, then I think you'll really get along with this product. 

Another thing to mention is that this is definitely a light weight product, the formula feels quite watery and seems to soak up into the skin really quickly, which is a bonus if you're looking for something quick to add into your skincare routine. So, overall I do really like this product.. I didn't know what to expect for such an afforable serum but the results are definitely showing well!




Next up is a blush, Asda do some gorgeous blushes but their cosmic baked blusher in the shade 'Galaxy' has to be my favourite, it's a really pretty shimmery pink colour. Formula wise, I really like the product it's packed with pigment and adds a gorgeous shimmery blush to the cheeks without being powdery at all. I always seem to prefer baked blushes and bronzers myself, as I think they add such a lovely healthy glow to the skin.. and this definitely does that!

It costs just £5 too, which is a little pricier than some of their other blushes, but I just love the quality and colour of this one. You also get a huge amount of product in the pan too, so this is definitely going to last me for a long time, especially since you hardly need any product on the brush to build up the colour at all.




Another product I've been loving is the smoothing eye cream from nspa. This one supports delicate skin around the eyes, and is enriched with hyalurolic acid and tetrapeptides, which aim to reduce the appearance of fine lines and crows feet around the eye area... I don't actually have crows feet myself so I can't comment on this helping those but I suffer from pretty bad fine lines directly under my eyes and I also have bad dark under eyes too.

I've been using this one twice a day, which is recommended and the main thing I've noticed is the difference to my dark circles. It's really helped to brighten up and add more radiance to my under eyes, which is a huge bonus for my tired looking eyes.. I find a lot of products don't live up to their claims when it comes to dark circles but this has really helped to make a difference. It hasn't completely gotten rid of my dark patches, which I wasn't expecting at all but I am still very impressed with the results. 

Now for the fine lines, mine are pretty bad.. I have noticed a difference and it's definitely reduced the appearance of them but not enough to make a dramatic difference, however saying that my under eye fine lines are pretty bad.. I do suffer from a chronic illness myself which causes a lot of fatigue so that's something to bare in mind. I would definitely repurchase this eye cream for the benefits to my dark circles alone though and it's definitely become one of my favourites for helping to reduce them, especially considering the afforable price too!




Lastly but by no means least is the their amazing highlighter palette, which I've been reaching for so much ever since it's arrived! The palette includes four different shades, which I think are very versatile and I'm glad that there is definitely a shade for every skin tone in here. The 'lustre' shade is perfect for us pale skin girls, and it gives the skin such a pretty pearl like glow - it looks gorgeous in the inner corners of the eyes too! I've also tried using the 'Glow' shade on my cheeks and it makes for a lovely blush, so it's definitely a handy multi-purpose palette.

I just can't get over how beautiful these shades are, and what makes them even better is that they are packed with pigment too! I really like the formula of all of the shades, they are not powdery at all and apply beautifully. Another bonus is that they are pretty well long lasting too, it will definitely last you a good 5-6 hours before it looses it's full capacity and needs topping up. It's really afforable too at just £6 which makes this such a great dupe for lots of high end palettes in my opinion!



I hope you enjoyed reading about some of my beauty and skincare favourites from Asda, I have loved trying out lots of new bits from the brand recently and have been so impressed with the quality of the products for the price!

  1. I love nspa products- they're so cheap and cruelty-free too! I've tried their moisturiser and sheet masks and I'm super impressed. The Asda baked blush looks gorgeous too, it kinda reminds me of Milani Luminoso.
