Save Money on Beauty

Filed under: Beauty Tips,Skin Cleansers — admin

The pursuit of beauty can be very expensive. Factor in the cost of shampoo, conditioner, nail polish, make-up, perfume, and lotions, to name just a few of the products you might use, and you could end up spending a small fortune. Don’t be discouraged though because it is possible to have everything you need, while saving money on beauty products.

One way to reduce your costs on beauty products is to use homemade products. In fact, some home beauty treatments are simply a matter of using a single ingredient. Investing in a good book that will show you how to create your own products will save you lots in the long run. An extra bonus is that your products will be chemical free, especially important for those who have sensitive skin.

Comparison shopping is a good way to get products at the best price. Make a few phone calls and check store ads. Ask if you can get free samples with your purchase. Some stores may be willing to sweeten the deal to make a customer out of you.
Waiting for sales is an excellent cost saving measure. Many products will be discounted from time to time. The trick is to stock up when they’re discounted, so you’ll hopefully have enough to last until the next sale.

New products are frequently priced at lower introductory prices to entice consumers to give them a try. You may even get free samples of a related product from the same manufacturer. The beauty companies know that if they can get you to try their product, you may continue to use it. Take advantage of this and save some money. You might even discover a new product you absolutely love.

Sometimes buying a more expensive product can save you money in two ways.

1. You love it and actually USE it.

2. It’s more concentrated so you use less.

Also, shopping with a Direct Sales Consultant can sometimes save you money, if they offer a money-back guarantee. Companies that offer natural beauty products AND a guarantee can be a better deal than buying in bulk at the discount store.

Review: Aveeno Cleanser with Soy Extracts

Filed under: Aveeno,Skin Cleansers — admin

My most recent test product is Aveeno Positively Radiant Cleanser with Soy Extracts.

The Aveeno product descriptions states:

Brings out skin’s natural radiance. Helps even out skin tone and texture. Oil-free. Hypoallergenic. Soap-free. Noncomedogenic. Lifts away dirt, oil and makeup without over-drying for naturally radiant skin.

I have very sensitive skin, so I thought this would be a great product to try.

First the pros – The Aveeno cleanser comes in a nice pump and it smells wonderful. It is a pearl-looking cleanser and is very smooth. The cleanser cleaned my skin well and it felt smooth afterwards.

The cons – My face was slightly red after cleansing. If you have highly sensitive skin, this one might not be the best skin care product for you.

If you use Aveeno Positively Radiant Cleanser at home, please let us know what YOU think.
