When my I started on my blogging journey, I would marvel at all the wonderful full time bloggers out there and wonder where on earth do you start?  I wasted about 18 months of my time on a blog that was going nowhere because I didn’t know the basics or the tips and tricks of the trade.

1. Exfoliator

Body scrubs are a most, especially during the summer.  If you find you have run out don’t worry, head to your cupboards, and mix some sugar and olive oil or sugar and honey to form a paste.  Use as you would with your branded exfoliator.


2. Foundation

If you’re coming to the end of your foundation, mix it with your day cream.  Voila you have your very own tinted moisturiser.


3. Teeth whitener

Running low on your favourite teeth whitener?  Baking soda has you covered. It gently removes stains and discoloration.  Sprinkle a little baking soda in to your hand, wet your toothbrush and then dip in the baking soda.  After brushing rinse thoroughly.


4. Dry Shampoo

One of the wonder products must be dry shampoo.  It’s great for those times you don’t have time to wash your hair.  If you run out, you can still freshen your hair with a light dusting of baby powder – although make sure it is a very light dusting or your hair will turn white!


5. Perfume

Make those last drops of your favourite perfume last longer by adding some to unscented body cream.  You now have a wonderful fragranced body cream to use all over your body.

6. Face Mask

Your kitchen cupboards come in useful again for your weekly face mask.  Put a few drops of your current cleanser in a bowl, add a dash of honey and a pinch of salt.  The honey will give your skin a healthy glow while the salt helps open your pores to get rid of any excess oil.


7. Make your products last longer

  • Turn shampoo and conditioner bottles upside down to get every last drop out.
  • If you can’t squeeze anymore product out of tubes, cut them open and scoop out.
  • Scoop out the last bits of lipstick and mix with Vaseline to give you a lovely tinted lip moisturiser.
  • Think multi-use products, use lipstick as blusher, blusher as eyeshadow or mascara as eye brow definers.


8. Swap your products

Try swapping out some of your more expensive products.  If you can’t live without Micellar water, opt for an own brand product.  Some luxury mascaras are just crazy prices.  Again, try own branded products or shop online at the likes of Feel Unique or Look Fantastic where you can get branded products with up to 50% off.


Why not see what you can save on your beauty budget by using some of these tips.  Have you got a recommendation for some more beauty bargains?  I’d love to know about them.
