Whats your budget on hb Anonymous 16024

I don't buy any makeup except for lipsticks because oh yes pretty colours love it. Lipsticks last long even though I use them almost everyday. I have about 4 I think and it's been more than one year or two that I didn't buy any.

I don't spend a lot on haircare because I use what I have in my kitchen to wash and do masks. I think it's been more than one year. I only bought recently two products to try because it's made for curls. Cost me about 40 euros but I don't mind since I didn't buy any hair product for a while and it is quality stuff.

I don't buy much skincare products either, now good soap is enough for me. Recently I used pH neutral stuff I buy at the pharmacy. Costs less than 10 euros for 2 soaps if I remember correctly. But i swap a lot because I like to try soaps. I avoid conventional ones so I either buy stuff at the pharmacy or at bio shops.

As for health well I'm really inconsistent with the way I nourish myself so… It's either I spend way too much on junkfood or nothing at all or I'm being a good girl who buys nice meat and a bit of vegetables and fruits. I avoid fish now because it's so overpriced for its worth now with all the pollution. Too bad cause I do love the taste
I don't spend money on meds I don't live in US
Im taking better care of my illness tho. (It's not mental)

So in one year I usually don't even spend 100 euros in Health and beauty.

you don't wear sunscreen? you should start if not.

health: my medicine is about €260 a year currently sigh

mascara: €6 about 3-4 times a year
brow pomenade: €25 but it lasts like 2 years
sunscreen: I haven't been sticking to one brand
shampoo: €12 for a bar that lasts me a year easily, no conditioner

so a little over 300 both combined. No I don't use skincare, don't come for me, moisturizer does nothing.

No I don't. Most sunscreen have bullshit ingredients. I don't expose much to the sun anyway and I've never got sunburnt even when I did by going to the beach or going hiking. I prefer to use oils for my skin, forgot that part because I sometimes forget to do it.

Nice tbh, it's not over the top. Too bad you pay so much for your meds, I'm so glad I don't have to because it would cost me a fortune

shampoo. soap.

Anonymous 16035

I buy everything at the drugstore now. My eyeliner is the most expensive at $16. I also use mascara which I think is around $10 and face sunscreen that was around $7-8, I think. I've never paid attention to how long these last… My facial cleanser and toner are like $6-7 each and my make-up remover is just the drugstore brand lol.

My body soap is about $6 for a huge thing, and I think my shampoo and conditioner were also around $6 each for pretty big containers.

Nice! Is your skin okay with those ?

Im thinking on buying a few hair products. I wash my hair with what I have in the kitchen as I said but I've tried a few products for curly hair recently and it was not as bad as I thought (good quality stuff obv but since it's still industrial stuff I was worried) so I'm following a lot of pretty gals with nice curls who don't use random shampoos they find while buying groceries so I kinda trust them and I'll choose stuff from what they use. But it certainly will increase my budget.

You just reminded me.

Yesterday I bought dollar store eyeliner for the first time and it was sticky and hard to remove if you made a mistake.

So at least a few bucks per item. Usually I just get shit from Walmart. I don’t need to go to Sephora or anything. It’s $16 for a tiny little beauty blender there. No amount of fancy merchandising is going to convince me that’s worth it.

I'm 32 and I have some texture but nothing horrible. I've actually had my skin complented several times lately. I don't have any deep lines, crow's feet, 11s, etc. I'm really worried about developing forehead wrinkles so this time inatead of buying the regular gokujyun moisturizer I bought the anti-aging one that is about $10.

I'm lucky that I rarely get acne and when I do it's hormonal acne on my chin that gets hidden by my mask lol.

Anonymous 16104

Nta but hormonal acne is a woman thing.. because you know.. we have hormones.. it's not exlusive to girls/women in their teens either, it can happen during a woman's menstruation at any point in their life and pregnancy can cause it too. It's why girls/women are often recommended to go on the pill to deal with acne (stupid imo but does happen a lot)

Do you work in construction or in a warehouse? Both of those professions are terrible for your skin I think

Adding to my previous post: About 3-4 months ago I stopped washing my facd in the morning and I haven't noticed any changes in my skin. My face wash and moisturizer now last twice as long.

However, I apply deodorant after my shower at night and in the morning so I go through it quite quickly. I live in Japan and deodorant comes in small sizes and is way mord expensive than in the US.

Does anyone know a solution for bad skin texture? I have a lot of big pores, some look like actual holes in my face. And I hate it. The cleaner I keep my pores, the bigger they look because they’re empty and more obvious. Is it possible to do an at home deep skin peel? I don’t have enough money to do a clinic one. Ive heard okay things about glycolic acid but I don’t think most at home acids are powerful enough to completely peel that top layer of skin off.
