Student Guide to Looking Good, for Less


You’re young, you’re free and you’re learning all the time. Not just from what you are studying, but about life in general. Oh, and there’s not a WHOLE lot of money to go round. In between food, accommodation, clothes and some entertainment – where does a beauty routine and some essential beauty products fit in?

Easily, I tell you. While you are no doubt naturally gorgeous, there’s no need to suffer when it comes to your beauty routine! Here are some awesome tips and tricks to saving, and still smiling pretty!

A Multi-Tasker

When having a host of separate products is just out of the budget, look for products that can do it all! A BB or CC cream fits the bill here – it’s a primer, concealer, foundation, powder and blusher in one! Annemarie Borlind BB Cream Multi-Talented Beauty Balm combines 5 qualities for a fresh radiance in one innovative product. The moisturizing day-care cream, containing botanical hyaluronic acid, comes in shades that leave the complexion looking naturally beautiful, even and radiant.

Light-reflecting pigments make fine lines and wrinkles appear less severe. A natural anti-aging complex reduces damage from UVA and UVB, protects the skin against negative environmental influences and free radicals, alleviates irritation and has a soothing effect. All at a great price!

Shop Wisely

What happens when you do have slightly expensive taste? Or products that you adore using? Well, try to take advantage on online sales and coupons, or sales in stores. If at all possible, stock up on your favorite products when they are on sale, so you save in the long run. Or look for online specials, such as those on COSME-DE.COM, and get yourself some MAJOR middleman cutting deals! Good business sense huh?

Sample Queen

If you feel you would really like a product that is quite pricey, why not pluck up the courage to ask for a sample? The worst that could happen is someone could say no. But more often that not, they’ll be happy to let you try, so you can see whether the product suits you before splashing out!

Lather Less

Another great beauty saver is to save on both product and heating / water bills! You can get away with washing your hair less (time saver too) by using dry shampoo in between a lather. Living Proof. Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo is reasonably priced, cleans beyond ordinary dry shampoos. It is infused with patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA) and Triple-Action Cleaning Technology, and absorbs and removes oil and sweat. It leaves virtually no visible residue or powdery build-up behind so it works on all hair colors. Even better, it delivers a light, clean scent throughout the day. Bonus!

Covet the Coconut!

This next tip may seem a little strange, you’ll get it in the healthy foods or world foods section. A great big tub of coconut oil. Yes, everyone is extolling the wonders of coconut oil and it gets a little boring, BUT, it’s a beauty on a budget miracle! It’s cheap, and can be used as a makeup remover (even mascara), a shaving oil, a hair masque or a deep skin moisturizer! You can’t beat that! Grab yourself a tub today!

We’ll talk about some simple ways to live a healthy lifestyle in the upcoming post! Stay tuned for it!
