As the household bills pile up in my ‘bills to be paid’ folder, I become more convinced that the days of expensive beauty products are nearly over. As one of my favourite bloggers, Ingrid often states on her blog, Glossy-Beauty, it’s not so important that ALL your beauty products are really expensive. She believes that it IS possible to get away with having some that are cheaper – as long as they feel right for you.
I hope to slowly find, trial and review some of these products, so that I can save in this area and so that I can share this knowledge with many of you that I know are also paying huge electricity bills and feeding families.
The first one I have come across, that I really like is GAIA Skincare’s Geranium and Palmarosa Intensive Moistruizer. I have been using Paula’s Choice Hydralight Moisture-Infusing Lotion (under the recommendation of one of my very knowledgable and very clever colleagues, and very good friend, Rachel). I just adore this product. It’s like rubbing riata all over your tired skin every night (I love riata – it’s such a yummy sauce). However, at $40 for a small bottle, I just couldn’t justify this anymore, so off I went in search of a cheaper option, which is $12.95 at Priceline.
I have been using this product for about six weeks now, and my skin feels just as good as it did when using the riata (yum). This is an organic product, for sensitive, dry skin. It smells so lovely and I like to mix it with three drops of the Sukin Rosehip oil – divine. My skin feels lovely after I apply it and then just as good when I wake up the next morning.
What night moisturiser you use? What are your thoughts on expensive verses cheap when it comes to beauty products?
