Our Favourite Beauty Buys Under £50

Our Favourite Beauty Buys Under £50
Knowing where to invest your money when it comes to your beauty routine can be tricky, so we asked the Space NK team which beauty products they really rate under £50. From Sol de Janeiro to Tan-Luxe, there’s something for everyone in their edit…

Dr. Dennis Gross

AHA/BHA Daily Cleansing Gel, £ 12,75

“I have had acne for most of my adult life, so cleansing is a hugely important step in my skincare routine. Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Pore Perfecting Cleansing Gel is incredibly thorough, but gentle. It’s soap and sulphate free, so doesn't dry my skin out at all. I use it morning and evening (after removing my make up with an oil-based cleanser), and it now lives in the shower as my teenage son has started using it too.” – Alys from Cambridge.


Ren Clean Skincare

Evercalm Barrier Support Elixir, £ 45,00

“Looking after your skin barrier can help fend off breakouts, ease redness and keep dry patches at bay. It’s no surprise that it is a big talking point in the skincare world right now. As someone who battles with blemishes, I tend to avoid formulas that have oily textures, but Ren Clean Skincare's elixir has been a game-changer and has helped soothe and rebalance my skin. I’ve been recommending it to everyone.” – Victoria, senior buyer



The Butter Illuminating Tanning Butter, £ 25,00

“I'm currently obsessed with the Gradual Illuminating Tan Butter from Tan-Luxe. I used it on my wedding day a few weeks ago and my tan was so flawless and even people asked if I’d had a professional spray tan.” – Becky, store manager at Beverley


Sol de Janeiro

Brazilian Bum Bum Cream, £ 21,00

"I love Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Cream because it is literally a holiday in a pot. It smells absolutely divine and leaves my skin feeling soft and firm." – Zoe, store manager at Norwich


Sol de Janeiro

Beija Flor Elasti-Cream, £ 21,00

“Like Zoe, I am a huge fan of Sol de Janeiro’s classic body lotion and I love the fragrance – it smells like holidays and instantly lifts my mood. Recently I’ve switched allegiances and started using the brand’s latest offering. The Beija Flor Elasti-Cream is slightly richer in texture and is formulated with plant-based collagen to firm and plump skin.” – Helena, skincare, fragrance and bath & body buyer


Paula's Choice

Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant, £ 12,00

"Paula's Choice Liquid BHA Exfoliant gives me smooth, poreless, flawless skin every day. It’s a skincare must-have for me." – Katie, store manager at Norwich


Malin + Goetz

SPF 30 High Protection Sunscreen, £ 34,00

“I am terrible at remembering to use SPF every day. Before Malin + Goetz launched this formula, I found sunscreen heavy and cloying, especially after I’ve applied my makeup. This mineral-based formula has a gel-like texture that’s lightweight and is completely invisible. It’s ideal for not just morning applications but re-applying throughout the day.” – Amy, art director



Super Glow Night Repair, £ 40,00

“Tan-Luxe Superglow Night Repair is a firm favourite in my post-gym skincare routine. First I use the serum and then the oil to complete the ritual to help refresh and revive my skin after a sweaty workout.” – Sam, store manager at Sevenoaks



No.9 Bond Protector Nourishing Hair Serum, £ 28,00

Olaplex is yet to release a bad product in my opinion and the No.9 Bond Protector Nourishing Hair Serum might be one of its best to date. It hydrates and strengthens hair without leaving it with that gloopy, sticky texture, and it conveniently provides heat protection up to 232C.” – Victoria, beauty editor



Beauty Elixir, £ 18,00

Caudalie Beauty Elixir is one of my menopausal skin saviours. It’s ideal for cooling down my skin and restoring brightness. I repeatedly spritz throughout the day.” – Penny, store manager at Sevenoaks


Rare Beauty

Positive Light Tinted Moisturiser, £ 29,00

“Of course, my favourite product was going to be something from Rare Beauty. Fans of Selena Gomez’s beauty brand might have been expecting me to name the Soft Pinch Liquid Blush, but I promise you this tinted moisturiser is absolutely brilliant. It’s lightweight, it’s hydrating, it provides impressive coverage, and it leaves your skin with the subtlest glow.” – Julie, makeup buyer



Curl Charisma™ Rice Amino + Avocado Hydrating & Defining Mask, £ 33,00

“Products like this make embracing your curls easy and effortless at home. Packed full of nourishing avocado, chia, flaxseed and caster oils, this mask rehydrates thirsty hair and gives your curls a natural definition, minimising the usual halo of frizz.” – Charlotte, new brands buyer
