I'm a skincare whizz – the Primark buys that can work wonders and what I'd never spend my cash on | The Sun

A BEAUTY whizz has shared her honest thoughts on the skincare range at Primark, revealing which items to nab and the ones to swerve.

In the recent years, Primark has become the go-to for those wanting to up their beauty game without forking out a fortune.

But are their products actually any good? One pro in the industry, Dr.Erma Derma (@ermaderma) took to TikTok to talk all things skincare – and here's what she had to say.

PS… Ceramide Toner

First up in the video was Ceramide Toner – this £5 steal is formulated to assist with hydration, according to the brand's website.

The skincare whizz said: ''Ceramides help protect the skin barrier by moisturising it and strengthening the skin.''

Another ingredient the dermatologist spotted was oat extract – this natural skincare staple is ''really good for an anti-inflammatory effect''.

Overall, Dr. Erma noted that this was a food product worth nabbing.

Future's Bright Smoothing Scrub

Next, the pro moved onto Future's Bright Smoothing Scrub that sells for £3.50.

But despite the tempting price, the beauty expert urged shoppers to steer clear from this item.

''I do not recommend using this since the mechanical scrubs can cause damage to the surface of your skin.

''On top of this, this has lemon and Yuzu, which can cause irritation to skin and cause sun-related sensitivity.''

Although lactic acid is a great exfoliant, the combination of a scrub and acidic lemon won't do any magic to your skin.

PS… Skin + Salicylic Acid Serum

Last but not least, Dr. Emma shared her opinion of 2% Salicylic AcidGreen Tea Extract Serum, a 25ml bottle of which retails for £3.50.

Not only is it a great price, but the whizz insisted its formula will help those struggling with acne and blackheads.

However, when it comes to green tea, the pro claimed it has ''weak evidence for anti-inflammatory properties''.

Dr. Emma advised beauty fans to not sleep on budget alternatives, writing: ''Skincare does not need to be expensive!

''Sometimes you are paying for the packaging or the name!''
