Most women are always on the lookout for the latest beauty cream to help them stay looking younger for longer. However new products are not always better than older, tried-and-tested products, and many of the beauty products that were available in our grandmother's times are still available today - and many are a complete beauty bargain.

Although some may dismiss these long-time products as old-fashioned, too cheap to work, or not full of the latest science to work as well as new products - consider this: would these products still be in existence if they really didn't work?

So what inexpensive retro beauty products can still be bought today? Here are Checkout Spy's top ten grandmother-inspired beauty products.
