Here are 5 affordable items you can add to cart to recreate your favourite spa experiences yourself, with each one costing just $50 or less.
If increased time spent inside has your skin looking a little lacklustre, a body scrub is guaranteed to perk it up. This Bondi Beach option by SENSORI+ is one of our personal favourites, with its luxurious feel and affordable price tag.
Made with avocado oil, coconut oil and eucalyptus, the scrub acts as a 2-in-1 exfoliant and detoxifying agent, which means you'll come away feeling both refreshed and squeaky clean.

One of the easiest (and cheapest) ways to pamper yourself is to invest in a face mask or 2. Not only can you find options to suit any skin concern, but there are also plenty of masks out there that ring up at less than $10.
Our top pick is this biodegradable mask by Sukin, which will give your skin a much-needed hit of hydration for the tiny price of just $5.39 ($3.56 off the RRP).

If you want to go all out, you can also add an exfoliating foot peel to your spa day. Made with Alpha Hydroxy Acids and salicylic acid, the peel removes dry, hardened skin over the course of a few days.
While the treatment may sound a little off-putting, you'll be glad you tried it when your feet emerge silky-smooth. Grab a treatment pack from Chemist Warehouse today and nab $6.60 off the RRP.
