Primark’s new skincare range might just be the most affordable and effective yet

Primark may not be your usual go-to for skincare, but thanks to their latest launch, it’s time to rethink. The high street hero, known for its affordable price tags, has just announced a brand new skincare range in collaboration with former Glamour Beauty Director-turned-influencer, Alex Steinherr.

As for what’s included? Think moisturisers, masks, cleansers and eye creams all for under a tenner. In fact, the entire 20-piece range doesn’t include a product over the price of £5 – and that doesn’t mean the quality is compromised.

Having worked closely behind the scenes with the brand for some years, Steinherr was committed to making good skincare accessible to the masses. She spent two years researching and developing with labs based around the world to ensure her range would be the skincare solution sought after by her loyal followers, who she explained often ask for more purse-friendly alternatives to the luxurious beauty brands she often recommends.

‘I have dedicated my career to sharing the best quality skincare I could find. I’m extremely passionate that everyone deserves beautiful skin, which is why I’ve often been disheartened by some of the cheaper alternatives on the market,’ she wrote on Instagram.
