Saving Money on Beauty Products

Jul 27, 2008
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.

Avoid purchasing beauty supplies or cosmetics at high priced cosmetic counters. Generally you will get a better price at a local discount store or drugstore. Or, see if your hair stylist can give you a deal on the product line she carries. If you're a loyal customer she may be happy to reward your loyalty with good prices on great products.

Another option is to avoid name brands in favor of generic or store brands. Often these products contain the same ingredients as the more expensive brands. You're just paying more because of the name on the bottle.

Check the Internet for sources of your favorite beauty products too. If you decide to shop on the Internet, be aware of shipping costs. Sometimes you can get free or discounted shipping if you order a certain amount. Some online sites even include free samples of other products with each order. A few include a free gift with each order. It pays to shop around and is easy to do online.

So, there you have it. It pays to shop around and shopping smart will help you to save money on beauty products.
