5 top tips to save money on beauty products

Most of us lovely ladies enjoy using make up and cosmetics, but sometimes it can get costly. So here are my 5 top tips for saving money on beauty products:

1. Homemade Beauty Products and Hacks

How great is the idea of making our own beauty products at home. Pinterest is very inspiring, with lots of different products to try and create! Plus, there are tonnes of great hacks too, using products you might find in your home. Like, did you know that you could use coconut oil to help shave your legs, deodorise your body and as a lip gloss? There are so many multi-use products that can save you money so get pinning to find out more!

2. Check out the Drugstore Dupes

Of course we would all love to use high-end beauty products and cosmetics, but sometimes we just can’t afford to. However, there are so many great dupes for these products available in your local drugstore. Here are some of the best ones I’ve come across:

As you can see, there is such a big price difference, yet the products are actually very similar.

3. Shop Online

If you read this blog often, you’ll know I’m a bit obsessed with shopping online (for example 10 of the best places to shop online). Therefore, it just had to be in one of my tips! You can use the shopping comparison tool on Google to find the product you’re after at the best price. Here is a quick price comparison I did for the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge:

It’s quite a handy tool if you want to shop around and get the best price, plus it adds it up to a total. It’s also good to be aware of when online stores are offering free shipping or deals on certain items.

4. Swap with Friends

Speak to your friends and see if they have any make-up they want to swap. Obviously, this wouldn’t be recommended for items like mascara, but it might work for other make-up. For example, have you ever picked up a foundation, tried it out once and felt it was completely the wrong colour for your skin so shoved it in a drawer? Or perhaps you were given some make-up for  a gift and it just isn’t you. This is likely to have happened to your friends too, so why not do some swaps? You could even make a fun evening out of it!

5. GratisfactionUK*

I recently came across GratisfactionUK, the UK’s fastest growing freebies site. I’m always up for a freebie, so couldn’t wait to see what gems I could spot! Being a bit of a beauty junkie, I wanted to see what they had. Clicking straight onto cosmetics and beauty, I noticed that they currently have offers on Aussie, Benefit and Bare Minerals. You can get your hands on the items through competitions, giveaways and samples. Therefore, this website is perfect if you want to save a bit of money on beauty products. There are also flash bargains and voucher codes so it’s worth checking out GratisfactionUK if you are shopping online and want to get a good deal on whatever you may be buying.

  1. No way! I had no idea there were ways to get this stuff cheaper…head slap! I am off to do some shopping today!

  2. Oh gosh I wish I would swap with friends, none of my friends wear makeup!! I love finding better ways to spend my money!! I’ve never shopped online before, I should really do that

  3. That looks like a great site to get makeup at discount or a sample of something really good. i don’t have a friend to swap with but I love that coconut oil and all its uses.

  4. I agree with shopping online! I’m the mother of 3 soon to be 4 kids and it just makes things so much easier, then having to drag them in and out of the car constantly!

  5. Make up can be so expensive- especially if you are getting any of the quality stuff out there- these are some great tips! Thanks!

  6. I always search around online for discount codes before I buy anything as you never know. And sometimes if you leave something in your basket for a few days you’ll get an email saying ‘Forgot something? Here’s 10% off’ x

    1. It’s definitely a good idea to do that. Yeah, that is very true too! They are eager for us to buy 🙂

  7. It’s amazing how expensive it can get too. If you don’t know how to save money, you can really bust a budget. I love your tips on lip care! I had no idea you could do that.

    1. I know, it is mad the difference in price, but often they’re so similar!

  8. Shopping online where you can compare the prices is definitely a great option. I do this often!

  9. I just started making my own cleanser and using oils for moisturizing my face. Never considered swapping with friends especially on products that don’t match my skin tone. Great tips!

  10. I have found that some of the drugstore dupes are just as good if not better than the name brands. I have a drawer full of dupes makeup. I don’t mind them at all.

  11. These are some great ways to save money on beauty products. I also like to look for sales of beauty products on different sites, as well as free shipping! Love buying makeup and beauty products.

  12. Great tips. It’s always important to know the true retail price of an item before shopping online. So many sites like to jack up the price and make you think you are getting a good deal.

  13. wow, I love these ideas. I could surely save some money and put it to some good use. I often try to find deal and coupons before buying a product that helps to an extent
