Asda’s NSPA range continues to wow us…

We were raving about the Mother and Baby range from nspa at Asda earlier in the year and now, seemingly,  they are doing equally great things with their Beauty Rituals collection of cleansers, facial oils and moisturisers.

Whilst the packaging on the products might be basic the ingredients and performance are making beauty editors and rival brands sit up and take note.

Allure mag might have banned the term ‘anti ageing’ but we’re pretty glad of the age defying Bouncy Night Cream (named after its voluptuous texture) and Smoothing Day Cream with SPF15. Or their Nourishing Facial Oil – which is brilliant for perking up skin when you’ve had a night on the prosecco and need to look vaguely less like a zombie for the school run.

The average price of the nspa range is about a fiver – so zilch guilt factor – but looking at the whole range they have ‘versions’ of a lot of  well-known ‘hero brand’ wonder products – so it is worth being curious and putting things like their Hot Cloth Polish and Flash Serum to the test, we reckon…

Our brilliant £3 beauty bargain…

Asda (yes, Asda!)’s NSPA Mum to Be range includes some great products; their bump butter, for example, smells divine and is super rich… But it’s their Nipple Balm that has been blowing our mind this week, and we haven’t once used it on our nipples!

The product normally retails at £5 but good ole Asda have rolled back the price to just three quid…

Editor writes: “OK, once you can get over the fact that you are carrying Nipple Balm in your handbag, this stuff will be your new best friend. Essentially you can use it for any of the millions of tasks you might otherwise use Lanolips for – or for that matter, Eight Hour Cream – lips, cuticles, hands, elbows etc, or taming those eyebrows… I love rubbing a bit into my cheeks for a bit of a dewy/outdoorsy look but you could actually go the whole hog and blend it with your regular moisturiser for a little extra boost. It’s fab as a barrier of your toes rub in flip flops or rubbing into your ear lobes when you take your earrings out. 

NSPA Nipple Balm is made with medical grade Lanolin and Rose Hip Oil, so if you actually were using this on your boobs, it would be totally safe for breastfeeding. But also means it’s good news for those with sensitive skin… 

As this product is super cheap at the moment I’d be tempted to stock up – except for the fact that I think one tube will probably last me six months. Obviously, you will get some funny looks when you whip it out in public (and maybe some helpful types offering to redirect you to your areola!) but just roll with the smugness that this is thirteen times cheaper than Eight Hour Cream (not that we don’t love Eight Hour Cream, but…) so your skin will still love you but you can spend a bit more on shoes *cough* – I mean, groceries…”
