Few things in life fill me with more joy than opening the lid of a truly luxurious beauty product. It’s superficial, I know, but there’s something about the feeling I get when I know I’m giving myself something big. I guess this famous advertising slogan sums it up so well: it’s because I worth that, right? This is essentially how consuming luxury beauty products makes me feel, whether it’s giving myself a nourishing hair mask or taking the time to really massage in my nighttime moisturizer.
That said, there are some products that I prefer to buy on a budget. While some high-end alternatives to my budget beauty favorites are wonderful, when it comes to spending my hard-earned cash, budget shopping wins. After many years of testing and trying new beauty product launches, I have come to find that some products are just not worth a great expense, either because the budget options are just as good, or because that the results just don’t justify the money.
