Kate Middleton's go-to drugstore face cream has been halved in price this Black Friday, making it less than the price of a takeaway coffee. 

The Princess of Wales may have unlimited access to the best skincare products on the market, but that doesn't mean she's opposed to using cheaper alternatives. 

Kate Middleton's radiant complexion has long been regaled by royal fans, many of whom are desperate to achieve the 41-year-old's glow without breaking the bank. Fortunately, that won't be necessary. While the princess has undeniably favored luxury face products in the past, it's no secret that she's also a big fan of less expensive options. 

In fact, Kate Middleton was even spotted in 2011 buying a pot of Nivea's Visage Pure and Natural Moisturizing Day Cream in Boots on The King's Road in Chelsea, London. The VIP sighting was reported by a fellow customer, who initially didn't realize that she was in the presence of royalty.

"Kate looked like an ordinary shopper as she went up to the counter to buy her cream," the witness told a Sunday paper, before describing the future Queen's Consort's temperament as "friendly and chatty." 

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

The cream, which is now called Nivea Naturally Good Radiance Day Cream, is selling at Ocado for just £3 right now – half the price of its original £6. The unbeatable deal, which is available until November 29, is just one of many exciting Black Friday deals to hit the stores this winter.

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).

With high-flying reviews, a mega low price tag and a royal stamp of approval, we'll be stocking up.
