Kate Middleton was once spotted purchasing a drugstore face cream and it's a total bargain.

Of course, as the future Queen Consort, Kate has access to the best skincare products on the market and no doubt has a beauty stash jam-packed with top-of-the-range moisturizers

But that doesn't mean the Duchess is against cheap high street purchases, as a royal fan once spotted her buying a particularly affordable Nivea face cream. 

During a shopping spree on The King's Road in London, a fellow Boots customer witnessed Kate picking up a tub of Nivea’s Visage Pure and Natural Moisturising Day Cream.

The cream, which has since been rebranded as Nivea Naturally Good Face Cream, is priced at just £5.99.

This Kate Middleton-approved moisturizer is a must-buy if you're on the hunt for an affordable yet refreshing face cream as we head into summer. Packed with hydrating, natural ingredients and under £6, it's a no-brainer purchase.

"Kate looked like an ordinary shopper as she went up to the counter to buy her cream," the onlooker said of the moment they caught a glimpse of her in store. 

"It was only when I took a second glance that I realised who she was," they added. 

The bargain Nivea skin treat boasts a "refreshing formula" made from organic aloe vera, jojoba and almond oils, promising to leave skin feeling fresh and relieved from tightness and dryness.

And it's certainly not just Kate who's a fan of the stuff, as the product has racked up heaps of raving five-star reviews. 

"So pleased with this cream, I love the smell, the texture and how it applies. Feels light but works so well on my slightly dry sensitive skin," one happy purchaser penned, giving it top marks. 

Another applauded its ability to leave her skin feeling hydrated, not slimy, writing, "Despite its richness, it absorbs quickly and evenly and doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy or oily." This rich, hydrating texture means the cream would be an excellent choice to try the latest skincare trend, slugging (and if you're intrigued about that - read our guide to find out what is slugging)
