How to avoid overspending on beauty products.


Introducing more than one product at a time or changing your routine too often can end up causing more harm than good.

Your skincare is there to do the hard work for you, so let it do it!

It’s much easier to stay consistent with your skincare lineup if you don’t have a stash of new products staring at you every time you open the bathroom cabinet.

I also find that if I stick to my routine, I start to see the results I’m looking for and the temptation to look for something new is much less.

Again, skin care samples are a great way to get a feel for a product before buying the actual size. You’re unlikely to see major results or claims from a trial size, but I find them to be a great way to see if something is an instant “no” for my skin.

Buy your stock.

Regardless of the size of your beauty product collection, I can’t tell you how fun it is to browse and rediscover the products you love. It’s even more fun if you get a small basket and try to pick out a full face of products you haven’t used in a while. I guarantee there will always be at least one product that you will fall in love with again, or it will be a great way to keep an eye on the products you have opened.

If you go through your inventory regularly, it helps you identify how long you have been open for different products and what you are actually going through.

For me, blush is something I never tire of, but every time there’s a new formula to try, I gravitate toward the same shades. Keeping track of the options I already have on hand (and love!) makes it easier to bring back that peachy blush when I know I have 15 more at home.


Ultimately, I’m not here to tell you how to spend your money, but it helps to keep these things in mind so that shopping for beauty is fun and rewarding – not driven by hype or sentiment. that you’re missing something better.

Beauty is meant to be pleasurable and if you get to the point where you’re overwhelmed, it really helps to take a step back and simplify everything.
