Recently I’ve been looking for a more savvy way to stretch my money as far as it can go. It seems that every time I want to try a new product, or replace one I’ve used up – the price just isn’t affordable anymore. I’ve made it my personal mission to find affordable products for our visitors which can transform your product purchasing into a rewarding experience. Here are some of my absolute favorite beauty finds – for a lot less $ than expensive name brands.

CVS Argan Oil Renewing Conditioner

This product is incredible! It’s a dupe for the major competitor OGX, which has a popular product line of shampoo and conditioners. The cool thing is that our affordable CVS version has an identical ingredient list to its competitor OGX – Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco Conditioner. The only difference you’ll notice, is in your wallet. The contents, volumes, and results are all remarkably comparable – you’ll wonder why you haven’t tried it earlier. The cost is only $5.99 and you can order the Argan Oil Conditioner directly off CVS.com. This holds true for other products from this beauty line including: CVS Keratin Straightening Conditioner and CVS Coconut Milk Moisturizing Conditioner.

High end skin care products can run hundreds of dollars, while a dupe (or mimic) is available for less than $20 if you know where to look. Companies such as Walmart, CVS and Rite Aid have perfected the beauty brand dupe. They offer extremely affordable beauty lines known as Equate Beauty, Renewal by Rite Aid and CVS/pharmacy.

Equate Mild Liquid Facial Soap

Equate beauty products are comparable to the Clinique brand line. The ingredients are nearly identical and they offer moisturizers, wrinkle serums, toners, dark spot correctors, and facial soaps to name a few. A great example isEquate Mild Liquid Facial Soap which is available for less than $8, while its Clinique competitor is retailing almost two times that price for the same quantity, ingredients and contents. This facial soap can be used on dry or combination skin types and leaves skin feeling refreshed!

Renewal Sulfate Free Color Protect Moisturizing Shampoo

Rite Aids’ house brand – Renewal, offers Sulfate-Free Color Protect Moisturizing, Rosemary & Juniper Shampoo, for $4.99 on Riteaid.com. This product is comparable to L’Oreal EverPure Sulfate-Free Color Care System Shampoo offered for a lot more money. These cost savings will earn you big bucks in the long run, especially if you purchase comparable product dupes for all your beauty needs!

CVS Stress Relief Moisturizing Lotion

CVS Stress Relief Moisturizing Lotion is one of my personal favorite body lotions. It has elements of chamomile and Lavender which sends your senses into an ultra ‘zen’ mode. It is comparable to Aveeno Active Naturals Stress Relief Moisturizing Lotion but costs much less money. The lotion contains natural colloidal oatmeal to help nourish skin and is only $10.49 on CVS.com. The Aveeno competitor is more expensive for the same product.

Knowing how to price save and compare amazing products is a skill you will want to use! Saving money on your regular beauty products allows you to spend more money on something unique or special. I’ve been able to purchase extra cosmetics from my savvy shopping habits, and you can to! Give one of these great products a try the next time you’re out looking for your major brand label. You will not be disappointed with the results – I promise you! Enjoy keeping yourself pampered and fabulous ladies!
