Ways to save, even when you spend !

The main focus on beauty blogs is what we buy and how we use it. I for one like to use quality ingredients on my face, as far as my skin care routine is concerned. I always find a way to figure out how to effectively use my products to get the most of them.

One of my favorite products to use after washing my face is Peter Thomas Roth Max Correction Pads. Coming in at $36.00 for 60 it is by no means, cheap. However, it WORKS like a charm. And, thats what counts. Plus, it is formulated without parabens, sulfates, synthetic dyes, phthalates, GMO's , triclosan. Now that I've told you what it doesn't have, I will tell you that it contains 10% glycolic acid and 2% salicylic acid.

What I do to make these last twice as long is simple. But I don't know if everyone thinks like me , so , I thought I would share.

You will need :

A cuticle scissor (any scissor will work, Cuticle scissors are just easier to use)

I didn't say this was going to be rocket science (LOL) I just simply cut each of them in half. They are saturated enough that you can easily get 2 uses out of one pad. (I also do this with my neutrogena makeup remover wipes,when I am not wearing too much makeup).

Snip- Snip

That makes 2

I usually cut 4 pads at a time. I use half of one every night  after washing my face. So, this turns 60 pads into 120 pads. Double the use. Leaving me a savvy shopper and a happy camper !

Another product that I am realy into is called " Every Drop " . It does what it says; it gets every drop. So, if you have a tiny bit of product trapped in a jar, it will get it out and you can use it on your skin.

This is great for getting the last bit of product out of any jar , container etc. I just used my foundation so you could see color comparison to show you how it works. It is a very cool concept and I really like the idea of getting " Every Drop " out of my makeup, skincare, hair care, lipstick, etc !
