What do you splurge on, what do you save on?

For all the skincare items out on the market, there are many price points that go from a couple of dollars to a few hundred. 

 

For me, my splurge item would have to be my Lancome alcohol-free toner. It smells so refreshing and feels the same when applied. I save on masks, using Queen Helene's Mint Julep Mask. 

 

In theory, the most expensive things work the best but that's not always true. What do you all have to say?

Re: What do you splurge on, what do you save on?

No prob! Has it always been giving you that error or is it random times?

Re: What do you splurge on, what do you save on?

I get the same thing when I hit "reply to".

Re: What do you splurge on, what do you save on?

I have just become addicted to the Agenist purifying mask scurb little bit, which I got a sample of last week in store. It is AMAZING! theres no doubt that this little beauty will become my skin care splurge. Other than that, I try and find little diamonds in the rough at places like TJMaxx or Ross for other skin care product. I found my new favorite overall line (Yea To Carotts) at Ross and each product was only like $3-$4!!! Smiley Happy 

Re: What do you splurge on, what do you save on?

I just bought some a few nights back. $3.99 per bottle and the bottle are big! love TjMaxx!

Lylysa -

 

I used to be able to reply but have had problems since they re-did the site.

Re: What do you splurge on, what do you save on?

Ah, than it probably is just tied directly to the browser and not some random glitch!

Re: What do you splurge on, what do you save on?

I usually splurge on serums, eye creams and my night cream.  I've tried tons of them and I keep coming back to Clinique's Repairwear line because nothing works better for my skin without irritating it due to fragrance.  100% fragrance free all the way.  The night cream and serum combo is especially good, since I'm 31 and still have no lines on my forehead yet (knock on wood)! 

 

I do occasionally splurge on lip color if I find one that is AMAZING (other than Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments in all colors), but the other thing I usually get is Caudalie's Cleansing Water.  Amazing at removing all makeup, cleansing and toning in one step.

@waterbaby1981 good to see you on here! How are you and baby? Smiley Happy

 

I have to agree that the fragrance free skincare products have been doing WONDERS on my own skin so yes, they are a great investment!

Re: What do you splurge on, what do you save on?

Unfortunately, I'm willing to splurge on anything. BUT, that being said, I actually use up everything i buy, and purchase only what i really really want and need.

Re: What do you splurge on, what do you save on?

I'm the same! Like @MoreGun89 has said, how much you pay is the quality you get. 

 

I would have never thought I'd buy an expensive toner from Lancome, but! I did. And no regrets. :] 

Re: What do you splurge on, what do you save on?

Oh do tell about the toner! Which one is it and what do you love about it?

Re: What do you splurge on, what do you save on?

Hi Consolvo! I use the Lancome Tonique Doucheur. First of all, it smells really nice and refreshing! I noticed that after using it for quite a while now, my skin has been getting softer and more supple, and smooth! Even without having to refridgerate this, it feels nice and cool on the skin - can't wait to use it in the summer! :] 

 

I have combination skin that's oily on the T-zone. 

Re: What do you splurge on, what do you save on?

@DaisieWilde- What scent is that paticular Bond No.9 perfume? I splurge on everything and save on nothing. Smiley Tongue

Re: What do you splurge on, what do you save on?

I like to splurge on all-over-my-face items. Skin care, foundations, tinted moisturizers, and concealers. I'll save on almost anything else because I usually get sick of something and get rid of it to try something new. I'm pretty frugal in every other are of life too. 

Re: What do you splurge on, what do you save on?

Like a lot of people that have replied, I splurge on any product that is going on my face! So my cleanser, treatment serums, moisturizer, foundation, etc. Things that I'll save on are brow pencils and lip liners; those don't really matter to me lol

Re: What do you splurge on, what do you save on?

My splurge is Skinceuticals CE Ferulic; it's really pricey but I love it, and now that it's part of my routine I don't want to stop using it. I usually just go with what works well for me. I don't think anything I use for skincare is what I would call inexpensive, but some of it is less costly than the rest. I tend to save on things like lipglosses and eyeliner, because I go through them so quickly.

 

Outside of makeup, I splurge on things like bags (that I wind up using for years and years) and save on shoes (which I tend to be hard on and go through quickly). I have a friend who has a huge collection of Jimmy Choo / Christian Louboutin shoes, but shoes have just never been my thing (she might feel the same way about things I tend to collect, though!).

Re: What do you splurge on, what do you save on?

Does anyone splurge on haircare? I remember glancing on an article awhile back that says you really just need to splurge on shampoo and not conditioner. 

 

I usually don't really care what shampoo I use (but I will never go back to Fruitess). But I do work to find the best hair mask treatment and I don't think anything will beat Kpak Reconstructor. 

Re: What do you splurge on, what do you save on?

I splurge on conditioner! I love Sachajuan's Deep Conditioning Treatment (or something to this effect -- I forget the exact name). It's so moisturizing (I use it once a week or so). I should probably splurge more often on shampoo, too, but I tend to use the cheaper stuff.

Re: What do you splurge on, what do you save on?

@thatbluebox- I splurge on shampoo and conditioner I use the Keratase Line and I couldn't imagine using anything else.

Re: What do you splurge on, what do you save on?

@triciaann12- I use the Chroma Captive Shampoo and Conditioner. I have color treated hair and it's a shampoo and conditioner that helps to hold color in for 40 days. Now with that being said I used to get color and highlights every 4 weeks now it's every 6 so that's savings in itself. I also use and alternate between Chroma Thermique which is for colored treated hair and the Nectar Thermique which is for dry hair that I use before blow drying and I did have the driest hair ever and no shine at all,it always just looked like if the wind blew it would break off. Now it's so soft and shiny that I have never thought about looking back to anything else and never will. I got really mad at myself because I didn't find it sooner. 100% true story!

Re: What do you splurge on, what do you save on?

@triciaann- I alternate between the Chroma Thermique and the Nectar thermique before I blow dry and what' so exciting to me is that's all I use besides a small amount of hair spray to finish off.(AAAAAAA like the angels are singing about it right now).Smiley Happy What did you want to try? No nothing is heavily scented but they are heavenly scented. Honestly they smell sooo good.

Re: What do you splurge on, what do you save on?

I splurge on my hair care. I use Wen cleansing conditioner, hair masque and refresh spray, Josie Moran Argan hair serum and Carols daughter Hair milk. (i have super spiral curly hair that frizzes and its super long, to my waist, and thick so i use double n most people)

 

 

I save on face stuff. I use St Ives cleanser and exfoliant and Queen Helenes mint julep mask as well s some "home" masks ie egg yolks.

Re: What do you splurge on, what do you save on?

Bath products. I will think nothing of spending $20+ on a body wash and then tend to be a bit more frugal when it comes to skincare for my face! 

 

I guess you could also say the products I get for my hair count as splurging; I have dreadlocks and tend to spend most of my money there for organic shampoos and hair oils. Totally, totally worth it, though.

Re: What do you splurge on, what do you save on?

Eyeshadows lol
