Budget Beauty Buys: Dirty Works Review

I spotted some of the retro-packaged 'Dirty Works' skincare range on offer in my local Sainsbury's the other week so a review was begging!

I purchased both the face wash and the night cream at half of their original price and having been using them both for a few days.
The face wash is lovely in that it doesn't get too soapy when you initially rub it (I hate an over use of sodium laureth sulfate!) and isn't to sticky when it's applied and washes off well. The scent is quite unusual in that it's not the usual soapy smell often associated with face washes, but I found it quite refreshing. It's only £3.99 full price but it is always nice to buy new products to try at a little less!
I found that it removed my make-up well and in applying a toner afterwards there was no residue which was a good sign.

The night cream is particularly nice as it is very light (I don't like a thick cream at bedtime!) It sinks in extremely quickly, although I do have skin on the drier side of the spectrum. I usually use Bio Oil and haven't bought a regular night cream for quite a while. I was already using Dirty Works eye cream which I love and so far, the night cream has been a good buy. I'd been using Bio Oil for months so I'm guessing it will take a wee while to see any obvious changes!!

I do have to confess that I am a sucker for retro and glamorous  packaging and do have a special affinity for Soap & Glory, but at these prices I was very happy to try Dirty Works and have not been disappointed.
All in all, I would give it a 7/10.
Have you tried it? What did you think?
*PS- There's a Flash Sale on my Redressing Website this month! Grab yourself a bargain xXx

I tried their face wash and wasn't pleased at all, I couldn't get past the smell, but I tried their foot cream and it was lovely.
