Whether you buy a few or many, beauty products, cosmetics and toiletries is an area you can always stand to be a little more frugal with. Especially if you’re someone who enjoys wearing makeup and indulging in beauty items, you may not even realize how much money you are spending every year on items which can perhaps be avoided – and may even be items you’ve never used or forgotten about. 

Here are four helpful tips if you’re looking to save a bit of cash on your beauty and cosmetic items. 

  1. Take the Time to Look for Discounts 

You will always be able to find bargains when it comes to beauty products. It may be a bulk-buy deal, such as 3 for the price of 2, or it may be a deal such as discount cosmetics by Maple Prime. Online deals offer the best opportunity for grabbing lower prices compared to shopping physically in high-end stores, and you should take the time to look during great sale periods, such as after Christmas. 

  1. Finish What You Already Have 

You might be out shopping when you spot a new lipstick shade you love even though you have ten unfinished ones of similar shades at home. While it’s okay to try out new products and colors occasionally, it’s a good idea to look at what you have already got and try and use them up before you go shopping for more. Otherwise, you risk products being shunted to the back of the drawer, forgotten about or going out of date – which means it is a waste of money. 

  1. Have More Cohesion Within a Household 

A large, growing family will undoubtedly have their preferred brand and products of everything, such as shampoo, toothpaste, and beauty products. However, this can get messy and expensive when you must buy four different brands of the same product. Try and find unity within the family by communicating which brands or versions of products you can all agree on, and then you only must buy one large version of that – therefore saving money and time. 

  1. Think About What You Use 

A lot of people impulse buy beauty products, whether it’s a makeup palette that looks shimmering and enticing, a face mask that you feel like you suddenly need after a bad day, or other beauty luxuries that you see because you feel as though you deserve a treat. 

Take a step back and think about what you want – and need – within your daily beauty routine. If you only ever wear natural shades of makeup, then a bold eyeshadow palette might look pretty in the shop, or perfect for the odd night out, but if you only ever wear once a year during a special occasion, then why waste money on it? 

If you prefer natural body treatments and shampoos, then cut out the extra luxuries with toiletries if they are not needed – even if they look and smell nice!
