Inexpensive Beauty Find: Tesco Along Came Betty

Posted by Lipglossiping On November - 9 - 2011

Another supermarket, another vintage-inspired bodycare range… all I can say is, these must sell really well!  Sainsbury’s have Dirty Works, Asda have Ella & Rose and now Tesco have jumped on-board with the new Along Came Betty!

These ranges all look a bit samey (I guess that’s the point) but I can totally see the appeal for those who can’t afford to fill their S&G addictions and I bet Grandmas are forever picking them up for younger, female members of the family!

The lineup features a range of body and skincare products inspired by 1950s screen stars and beauty icons. It includes:

~ So Much Bubble Skin Softening Bath Soak (£3.99)
~ To the Skin and Beyond Ultra Rich Body Butter (£4.00)
~ Hey Sugar Sugar Easily Spreadable Body Scrub (£5.99)
~ Clean Around the Clock Soft Skin Shower Wash (£2.99)
~ It’s a Skin Thing Ultra Light Body Butter (£3.99)
~ Say you Scrub me Scrubby Skin Polish (£3.99)
~ The Big Scrub Mitt (£2.00)

Along Came Betty will be selling at 1/3 off from 16.11 to 06.12 and also available on 3for2 from 7.12 to 03.01 January making it ideal for stocking stuffers and hamper builders alike!

    I dislike own brand versions of S&G, the Sainsburys stuff mostly smells horrible.

    I just think you can’t beat the original, although I am not impressed with the re-branding and re-smelling of S&G now, its put me off a bit

    So far have tried the shampoo, conditioner, face wash and mascara. All great with a lovely, subtle smell. The wow mascara brush tends to get clogged up, not sure whether I had an iffy brush, but mascara brilliant!

    Just brilliant! I’ve been using these since they hit the aisles! The bath foam is to die for, skin so soft after getting out and then lashings of the body cream, which goes a LONG way! The pore treatment washes work better than the Clinique stuff I’ve been using for years and I’m so in love with the scent, I’ve bought the ACB eau de toilette!! I might not look like a 50’s screen icon, but in my mind I smell like one! :) I’ve also invested in the smokey eye shadow (use your own brushes or look like a clown, same with any I guess) and the long lashes mascara is brilliant! I’m useless at using eye liner, but this one is so easy to use!! Give it a try, worth it at the supermarket price rather than the over inflated cosmetic company prices!!
