When you just cant afford your favorite skincare from hsn what do you use
What affordable skincare do you buy like face wash etc.. when you can no longer afford your favorite thats sold here on hsn? Like my ssc products but my checking account is hurting right now. Anyone have some ideas for me?
L’oreal is Lancome in cheaper clothing. Baby wipes are great for removing makeup (face and eye). Any drugstore moisturizer will work; read the ingredients to find one for your skin type and use the label to find your “for oily skin, for dry skin, etc”. Spend the bulk of your money on a serum either from ROC, Oil of Olay, Neutrogena or Alpha Hydrox (depending if you want AHA, BHA or retinol).
Walmart is your best place to shop due to drugstores mark up higher, so check out FLOWER cosmetics (very good quality), Milani, Maybelline and again, L’oreal.
I lived on drugstore products for a LONG time until I was able to afford HE products and yet, still, my Holy Grail lipstick is made by Maybelline : )
Ava & Maya Daly’s sparkly Tinkerbell skin lotion that makes me glimmer in the sun.
That reminds me, I need to do some shopping on HSN.com.
Sweet Clover, I thought of a few things you might try.
First, try Ebay! Someone there might be selling the SSC cleanser, at a much lower price.
Second idea: at Facebook, there are local “buy, sell, trade” groups.
Join some of those groups and see if there are any beauty products for sale.
Thirdly, try yard sales, garage sales, thrift stores, even rescue mission type stores.
You never know what you might find! Lots of ladies are beauty product “addicts”, who buy way more than they can ever use, then end up selling them or donating them.
Here is something you might want to consider, I was trying all sorts of products to remove my bullet proof makeup. Finally in desperation I went to the kitchen pantry and tried coconut oil. It works great has saved my eyes lashes and lots of $$$’s.
L’Oreal Rivitalist line.
I just discovered L’oreal’s Age Perfect line while I was away on vacation – love it! Plumps my skin immediately, love the eye cream especially. L’oreal is the less expensive version of Lancome as they are from the same makers. I’ll be sticking to Age Perfect line for now, try it.
Look for drug store brands that are dupes for higher priced products. I always buy CVS brand face lotion, that has the same ingredient list as CereVe PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion. Also, if you haven’t already, do sign up for any discounts and/or scan weekly ads for deals on beauty products at your local drug store.
Have you heard of Derma e? I bought some cleanser, and a moisturizer that came with a scrub.
All from a local drugstore, 20% off, but online it’s 30% off, and I had a coupon for reward dollars.
Same day, no shipping charges, and discounts. My credit card thanked me 🙂
I still will buy from Sig A and M Asam and still have products that I use daily.
Should I say good bye to my 2 SSC face washes that I have on auto delivery both are at34.50 each which is cheaper than the new price but still high in cost??????
I do agree with the Cerave cleanser recs, but that will take up a big chunk/about half of your $20 budget.
I’d just scour the skincare section of your local drugstore and find affordable products that you need until your budget increases.
Honestly, I no longer use any HSN products and have found many more affordable skincare options out there, but really haven’t found anything…facewash, daycream, & nightcream…even in a set, for less than $20. I’m sure I could, if I had to, though. Just use it, even if it’s not the greatest…it’s still better than nothing.
Oil of Olay Classic cleanser is a good deep cleanser and leaves the skin moisturized. It’s about $6.00. Same with the classic moisturizer in the pump bottle.
I like Cerve anything at Drug Store for general skin care. Anything else you would need for problems I think you could find at Drug store like ROC or Olay.
My soon to be Mother-In-Law uses RoC products. Her dermatologist told her they were the BEST products you can buy over-the-counter. They must work, her skin is flawless and she’s in her mid 60’s!
wow!!! everyone gave such great ideas. i think most importantly, when it comes to the financials, the best piece of advice that i can give is to look through any and all available coupons that you can use to defray the cost of the product(s). sometimes you may think that something is un-attainable cost wise when with a coupon it can help make your dream of purchasing a reality. also, make sure to look through weekly ads/circulars for your local store prior to visiting. many weekly ads are available online so you can browse the circular without even leaving your house. i think with a little advanced preparation you will be able to achieve your goals.
as for basic skin care not offered by hsn, i would recommend researching a skin care line that offers products FOR YOUR INDIVIDUAL SKIN TYPE!!! if you are dry, you will need different products than someone else with combination skin, for example.
if you do not know your skin type, i recommend going to your local sephora store where the employees are highly trained and it would be a free consultation.
when it comes to me, i have acne prone skin so i like to use mostly the burts bees and desert essence skin care lines. as for naturals, i also like jojoba oil and all 100% pure shea butter. coconut oil is also a great and super-affordable moisturizer. as for a skin care line that is readily available at most locations, i am a fan of st. ives scrubs. st. ives is most likely available even at your local grocery store.
i also recommend visiting ulta (online and in-store), iherb (online) and also harmons discount beauty- which goes by the name "harmons". this is my favorite store outside of hsn. harmons is owned by the same company that owns bed, bath and beyond. harmons has both store locations and is available online.
i hope that this all helps!!! good luck, my friend and stay blessed. xoxo
