Ah! We all love Wilko's, don't we? As a student I was never out of the shop, picking up my toiletries, stationery and household bits and bobs.
I was intrigued to find out the budget brand has released a new range of health and beauty products from just 68p each, so I jumped on a train to London on Thursday to find out more at the company's press and blogging event.
|The very generous goodie bag|
Sun protection starts from a reasonable £2 and there's even a handy Family Care Pack (including a moisturising sun lotion, after sun lotion and a kids' spf 50 lotion in a clear travel bag) for just £10!
Being fairly pale, I was also pleased to hear Wilkinson has made the ethical decision to sell sun protection at a minimum of SPF 15 - a big thumbs up from me!
My favourite products? The Shower Smoothies, without a doubt. These 200ml beauties are comparable to Radox's, but cost around half the price. Just £1 each, you can bag two of these for £1.50 in store and they're available in three scents - Blackcurrant, Sweet Vanilla and Honey and Fruity Berry. While they do contain small exfoliating beads, they're soft on the skin and smell great. Well worth the money! Give them a go and pop them in your basket next time you're in Wilko's - I thoroughly recommend them.
The brand's Shower Creams (250ml) are also £1 each or two for £1.50, as are the Foam Bubble Baths and Hand Washes.
Also available are the cheap as chips mini hand sanitisers, only 68p each.
The brand has added an extensive hair collection to its new range - with prices from £1.48 each or two for £2. Take your pick from hair mists, shampoos, conditioners and protecting and hydrating products.
Desperate dieters may also be interested to hear Wilkinson has launched its own range of slimming aids, with products starting from 30p.
Also worth a look is Wilkinson's new Skin Therapy range. And with items starting at just 57p, you can't really complain. Included in the product line-up are the brand's 3-in-1 Fragrance Free Facial Wipes (57p per pack or two for 97p), a cleanser, toner and moisturiser (at 99p each), hand and nail creams (starting from 59p), facial treatments (from 98p), eye make-up remover (98p) and bath and shower treats (from 89p).
A big thank you to the girls at Tangerine PR for hosting such a lovely event. It was lovely to meet the team and the buyers and people behind the new ranges; they all talked passionately about the products and their love of the new collection was clear.
Do you have your eye on any of these products? Or have you tried any? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
