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?

I splurge on skincare items and haircare items,but tend to save on bath products.Love Ole Henriksen products! Also save on mascara,either using Maybelline,travel sizes,a bunch of samples too...Smiley Tongue

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

@triciaann- Yes it has transformed my hair. No frizz. Nothing but soft shiny hair.  I have not used this little amount of product ever until I started using Keratase. It's like I used everything before I used Keratase and the last thing I used was Pureology and the products frrom them cannot even come close to Keratase.I won't even consider anything else. Do you have long thin fine hair? If so yes the Christalliste is the right choice.The masquintense for fine hair for a treatment is great if your hair is thin.The hairsprays are expensive and I like the Double Force Controle Ultime but it last forever. If you like that much spray you should probaly stick to what your using now. And yes I don't use mousse, volumizer , gels or root boost. All I use is one or the other thermique treatments and that's it. And I think it's great that you want your natural color. I really can't say enough about these products. You just don't know how great they are until you use them.Smiley Happy

@triciaann12- I'm so glad I could help you. Anytime. I always purchase off the Keratase site just because they only authorize very few salons or web sites to sell their products,so no I don't think it's crazy because if you pay so much money for something you want to make sure it's the real deal. But I think drugstore.com would be okay to purchase from.The Nectar thermique smells so good and I can't even hardly smell it after I dry my hair so I think you'll love it!

Eyeshadow palettes & foundations!

I have always splurged on skin care items, and tended to save on hair care, and eyeshadows and lip products.  However, the more I started to wear shadows, I learned about pigmentation and staying   

power, so I now spend money for brands like Urban Decayand Stila.  I still will buy cheap lip glosses and try them out, I've had expensive lip glosses that were way worse than some $2 lip glosses I've loved.  

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

Ya I don't think the most expensive things necessarily work best. If only it were that easy...

I always pair up Sephora reviews with Makeupalley.com reviews to try to wittle down my list of potentials when I'm looking for a new product. Usually, the most expensive product almost never comes out on top.

 

I think, at this point, all of my products are in price ranges that I'm fairly happy with. If the products are more expensive, they usually last a bit longer. I think my biggest splurge at this point is my Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Mandarine-Basilic perfume Smiley Happy

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

It depends on your skin and what it needs, I have some friends who get cheap stuff because its the only thing that works for them without making them break out. 

I use dermologica its pretty expensive but keeps my skin clear and soft. Its what ever works for your skin.

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

All other makeup/skincare items I usually try to do brand name but for facial cleansers and body lotions I always look for the cheapest deals or sales at drugstores.

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

Anything skin related, I splurge on because I break out so easily.  I tend to save on lipstick and glosses.
