Our skincare should make us feel beautiful, confident and ready to face the day – but does it require an investment of not only time and energy, but also money – so it’s important to shop smart…

Rule 1 - Scrimp or splurge?

Skin supplements, cleansers, serums and moisturisers are all basics which are worth spending money on, but they needn’t be extortionate. However, don’t listen to those people who say that you can scrimp on a cleanser – derailing your skin at the first stage of your routine is not a good idea. Our view is that we only have one skin, so we better look after it!

Choose a formula which will smooth, soften and hydrate skin, as well as remove impurities which clog your pores and inhibit skin’s natural repair and renewal. Replenish Cream Cleanser thoroughly cleanses the skin and uses coconut oil, sweet almond oil, shea butter, vitamin E and phytoestrogens to help restore density and radiance. Following up with the Replenish Gentle Toner help to tone, refresh and hydrate the skin as well as refine the appearance of pores.

Rule 2 - Use your discount codes

Make sure you’re not missing a trick. Many of our emails and mailings have discount codes so make sure you quote them when placing an order (and of course don’t let them expire!) Sign up to receive our emails here, or via our call centre to be sure you don’t miss out.

Rule 3 - Buy duo packs

Make sure you’re completing your routine for the best results – a day cream needs the matching night cream (rather than the day cream for both) and a cleanser should always be followed by a toner. To help you get the best results for your skin and make the most of your budget, we offer discounts on all the products you would commonly buy together, including the Intensive and Replenish Day and Night Creams, our Replenish Cleanse and Toner and the Replenish Shampoo with either the Nourishing or Intensive Conditioner.

Some products, however, are designed to multi-task and these are great if you want to tackle a multitude of skin bug bears in one go, particularly on a The Radiant Tint Moisturiser SPF30 in Light and Medium blurs the line between skincare and make-up by nourishing and hydrating the skin as well as using light-reflecting pigments to flatter lines, wrinkles and redness.

Rule 4 - Take advantage of schemes

By referring a friend to Healthspan both you and your friend can save (your good deed of the day!). Your friend will receive £5 off their first order and you’ll get 20% off your next order too – find out more here.

All our skin and hair care products are now available on Subscribe & Save, a scheme which enables you to save time and money when ordering your products. It’s the ultimate solution for busy people – you can set up your subscriptions and manage them via our call centre or online at You will save between £1 and £6 on every pack* and if your product is ever available at a lower price in a sale, our Price Match Promise means that we’ll always automatically give you the lowest price.

Rule 5 - Know what’s what

Avoid common pitfalls when purchasing skincare and make sure you know what you’re getting. Lots of brands picture their product tubes or jars alongside the outer carton, making it look like you’re getting more. Don’t be deceived – check the product sizes and quantities so you know what you’re getting.

The price of a product doesn’t tell you everything about the quality of a product either. If you want to know how good a product is, compare the ingredients. Our Intensive Day and Night Cream contain pure retinol, rather than less effective forms (such as ‘pro-retinol’) used by some other brands, plus other well-known mature skin saviours like hyaluronic acid, SPF protection and vitamins C and E.

Rule 6 - Read the reviews

It can also be helpful to hear how other women have got on with the products you’d like to try. All of our product pages display independent product reviews and the results from our pre-launch user trials, helping you shop smart.
