Everyone loves to look great, but sometimes that comes at a high cost. Here are 7 Secrets for Saving Money on your Beauty Routine that can help you look great all without breaking the bank!
1. Shop the Drugstores
Drugstores are known for their higher prices but they are also known for their sales. Check the weekly sales flyer at your local drugstores for big savings on some of your favorite brands. Remember to join the stores loyalty programs for even more savings, often advertised prices are only for members and typically it’s free to join. In addition to weekly sales and store rewards programs you can also stack coupons from Coupons.com to save even more.
2. Use Sparingly
Most people use more product than they need to use which means your products will waste away quickly. Read the labels of your favorite products to see how much you should be using to increase the life of your product. Transferring product to smaller containers will also help you consciously use less, this is especially true if you buy larger family size or value sized products.
3. Substitute the Basics
Most people are extremely loyal to a few products like Foundation or Eye Cream. You can try switching items like Mascara or Lip Gloss that might not be as important to you to a Drugstore brand to save money without compromising quality.
4. Clean out your Cabinets
Often products get pushed to the back of your cabinet or the bottom of your make up bag. By cleaning out your bathroom you may find products that aren’t empty that you can use in place of buying new.
5. Ask for Samples
Don’t forget to ask for a sample before buying a new beauty product. Most beauty counters will give you a small portion of a product to try before you invest in a full size item. You can also ask for additional samples anytime you make a purchase, this is a great way to try new products.
6. Buy in Bulk
Warehouse stores and Salons often have larger sizes of popular brands and products available at a discount. You can also stockpile beauty items by purchasing several items when you find your favorite brands on sale. Just remember to check the expiration dates, some items will expire quicker than others.
7. Make Your Own Products
It is easy to make your own homemade beauty products like Facial Masks, Hair Masks and more. You can find recipes just by searching on Google or check out the DIY Pinterest Boards for lots of recipes on Homemade Lotion, Conditioner, Whitening Products and more.
