"What's the price of YOUR daily regime"

So I a came across an article in today's Mail Online (good old Daily Mail:)) about the cost of your day-to-day beauty products (read the article here). Anyway, some of the amounts looked rather high so I decided to look into mine:) Now, I never been 'addicted' to make-up or beauty products. Actually, I find that less expensive facial creams are better than some of the 'designer' ones. Two of my current favourites are Olay Complete Care Everyday Sunshine priced at a very reasonable £8 and Botanics Mattifying Day Cream SPF15 costing ONLY £3.50! I did try some expensive creams but I found them a bit too heavy. From my mum's point of view (and trust me she knows) if you are still young and don't have a problematic skin than less is more. Once your skin starts maturing (hopefully that's still a very long time away for me!) then you might need to invest into a few 'higher end' lotions and potions. However, when it comes to decorative cosmetics  (or make-up) I tend to go for pricier brands, although I don't really use that much make-up on a daily basis. Touché Éclat (love it) No7 BB cream, lip gloss and that is me done:) Oh, and on the night out I will add mascara but that is it. It takes me around 3 minutes maximum to do my so called 'make-up' which is perfect when you have a toddler to look after! Anyway, the total of my daily products comes up to around £144 (think it's pretty reasonable in comparison to others?!). So what's yours?

Olay Complete Everyday Sunshine £8, Nivea Facial Scrub £3.50, BDJ Organics Shampoo £5.50, Botanics  Mattifying Day Cream £3.50, Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat £25, L' Occitane Shea Butter Mom&Baby balm £14, No7 BB cream £13, Molton Brown hand lotion £16, St Tropez Everyday Moisturiser £14, Revlon lip gloss in coral £6, Original Source shower gel £2.20, Chanel Natural Finish Loose Powder £34.
