Beauty products can get really expensive. Especially since we, women, generally use a number of products for various purposes and after all it turns out to be quite a shocking amount of money that we spend for skincare, hair care and make up products. If you happen to be in search for new ways on how to save on beauty products that you need, it could be a good idea to know a few simple rules that will help you to save lots of money in a long term.
Quality over quantity
I know, many of you would contradict me that they would prefer to have more products rather than something really expensive, and I would totally understand this womanly need of “the more the better”. Yet one thing to know: if you buy good quality products (which generally are a little more expensive), they tend to last longer. It is better to purchase a little more expensive, yet better nailpolish rather than 3 or 4 cheaper ones simply because a better quality nailpolish would last much longer. And if you think that a cheap one would last only 2 or 3 days and you would have to get a cotton pad and a nailpolish remover, remove your make up, apply a new one and do it all over again after a couple of days… No way. A quality product wins in such case – a good nailpolish will last over a week!
If you happen to be lucky and catch a good product during sales, be sure you get something that you need or might need soon. If you know that your mascara, for example, is about to end relatively soon, grab another one if it’s on sale: you will be able to save some money in a long term (even though you might spend a little more than you expected now).
Since sustainability issue has become extremely popular and it’s become fashionable to be eco-friendly, make sure you do your job: in case you have some products that you don’t need, share them with your friends. And encourage your girlfriends to do the same!
