Look Beautiful For Cheap

The cost of makeup, skincare products, haircare items and other beauty products can really add up. However, you don't have to go broke to look beautiful. Follow these simple to tips to save money on beauty products.

Cosmetics - beauty products

Shop online

Shopping online is your best bet to save money on cosmetics and other beauty products. Comparison shop and use retailers such as drugstore.com and strawberrynet.com 

Generic beauty and bath products

Go generic

Gasp! As horrible as it may sound, it's really not that bad. I don't mean that you have to give up your favorite lipstick or body scrub. But the generic version of many staple products will suffice, such as soap, body wash, body lotion and even eye cream.

Buy products that do double duty

Your body lotion can double as a sunscreen. Your tinted moisturizer can be your anti-aging cream. Products like baby lotion and astringent are great because they have multiple uses. Mineral makeup is another fine choice because a little goes a long way.


Get your beauty fix

If you haven't heard about BeautyFix, you should definitely check it out. By signing up with BeautyFix for $50 every quarter, you will receive 7-10 full size (or deluxe sample size) beauty products. You save a significant amount of money because the total value of the products is over $400. For example, this is what's inside the first Beauty Fix.

  • Amarté Aqua Veil Pure Hydration Serum - Full Size
  • Amarté Natural Wonder Cream - Deluxe Travel Size
  • Jane Iredale Shimmer Powder in Rose Gold - Full Size

I am part of the beauty panel that selects the products (after testing them) that go into each BeautyFix kit. So I can tell from personal experience that these products are top notch. One of them retails at $105, so you are getting your money's worth with nine products. After signing up, you can be involved in the BeautyFix community and get some fabulous perks - like gift cards, special prices, and a chance at a free BeautyFix too.

Homemade facial

Use homemade beauty products

Many facial scrubs, cleansers, makeup removers and other products can be made from ingredients in your own kitchen. Here are a few fabulous homemade beauty products.

I am saving a ton of money using the Bring It Home Beauty DVD. I purchased it to learn to color my roots correctly. I was scared at first but the DVD shows highlighting with foils, cuts for men, boys and girls, bang trimming, and styling. It works! I am cutting my whole family's hair and saving money. I am going to buy the nail DVD.

Very relevant and valid advice in the current environment. I particularly agree with the online purchasing, huge savings can be realized there. Shoppers should also consider the Unboxed and Testers that are available from these retailers. Kozmetika so Zlavou Value Cosmetics Andre
