What do you consider when picking products? If you have allergies or seriously sensitive skin, that may be your first consideration. If you don’t have those issues, most likely you are looking at the price tag early on in the decision making process.
Some products are just too far out of reach to even bother looking at. I love Dr. Perricone’s line, but a $500+ price tag is just too much to even bother with. I have his cleanser and have used the supplements in the past which I really liked but with 3 college educations to save for, $500+ is out of my league. There are lots of products I’d like and I’m sure work better than cheaper choices.
So, what’s a girl to do? there’s only one way to balance our posh desires with financial responsibility… Picking reasonably priced products in our beauty repertoire! Save where you can, for some it will be on mascara, on others it will be on moisturizers, nail polish or (insert your idea) then splurge on one or two items.
Another way to save is with a signature product, for me, it’s my fragrance, morning, noon and night I’m wearing Chanel Gardenia. This one step saves me time and money, not to mention the dusty clutter of lots of perfume bottles. I just can’t imagine wearing anything else AND it has the added benefit of a nice collection (I’m up to 6) of the same bottle.
