One of my favorite money saving strategies is to get one beauty product to perform multiple tasks instead of buying multiple products. For example, when I recently ran out of liquid hand soap I decided I didn't want to buy more hand soap. I happened to have a large bottle of Dr. Bronners liquid castile bathing soap on hand so I simply filled the empty hand soap dispenser with the soap I normally use for bathing. If you look at all the potential uses listed the label on a bottle of Dr. Bronners's castile soap you soon discover just what a multitasker this soap can be.
There are lots of beauty products that with a little creativity can multitask and be put to use for a new task. Take the common toothbrush. There are products you can buy spicifically to exfoliate dry lips. Instead of wasting money on these products for dry lips, you can gently exfoliate them by gently brushing them with a soft bristled toothbrush.
A shower cap can not only keep your hair dry in the shower, it can keep wet hair dye contained to your head. If you dye your hair at home wearing a cheap shower cap while the dye is setting can prevent the dye from dripping all over your home. When you travel, be sure to pick up some free shower caps at the hotels you stay at to save for those at home hair dye jobs.
The most versatile beauty product I own is dark brown eye shadow combo (H.I.P. by L'Oreal). Depending on the type of beauty brush I use, I can apply my brown eye shadow as an eye liner, an eye shadow or to fill in my eyebrows. These are just a few examples of how being resourceful can save you money. If you think in terms of multitasking and imagine products you already serving a new purpose you can save money while patting yourself on the back for being such a resourceful Diva!
