When it comes to my beauty regimen, I’m all about affordable options and finding ways to save. I rarely stock up at Sephora unless I have my VIB coupon for 15% off my entire purchase. And my Neutrogena face wash and Almay eye makeup remover pads are only purchased when they are buy one get one 50% off at Ulta. The icing on the cake is that places like Ulta and Target are really making strides when it comes to affordable and QUALITY beauty products. E.l.f. Cosmetics has been a game changer for me! Have you tried their $6 primer yet?!
As much as it excites me to find affordable products, I have found that on rare occasions some products are just worth the splurge. No generic brand even comes close to replicating the results you get with these products. The quality over quantity rule definitely kicks in from time to time. Cue the anti-aging superstar: retinol.
Retinol Fusion PM | Peter Thomas Roth, $65
I originally started using retinol because it’s NEVER too early to start fighting wrinkles but I quickly learned that products with retinol do so much more. As someone who still breaks out on occasion, this serum really helps with the skin renewal process. It’s marketed to those trying to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles (ME) but also works with any redness or minor scaring you might have from acne (ME). It feels as light as water and is dry by the time I walk from my bathroom to my bed. The Vitamin C and E infused serum is oil-free and fragrance-free. Yeah, it’s $65 but if you’re only using a few drops a night, you can definitely make it last. I rotate using it with a rosehip oil I get from my local herb shop to stretch it even more and have had the same bottle for over a year now. Give this Retinol Fusion PM serum a try!
I can’t put all my cards on the table in one post! Plus, your bank account will definitely appreciate spreading these out. I’ve got a handful of other products worth the splurge coming your way soon. Do any of you swear by a beauty product that’s totally worth the price? Leave a comment and tell us about it! I love trying out new products.
Have a great week!
