10 Ways to Penny-Pinch on Your Beautycare with the Rising Cost of Living! - Give Me Cosmetics

10 Ways to Penny-Pinch on Your Beautycare with the Rising Cost of Living!


We are all aware of the scary society we live in right now, with the aftereffects of the pandemic and the ongoing war in Europe. World events are dictating our economy and with things like taxes, petrol, energy, and household bills on the rise. It’s even more important to protect the pennies any way you can. We get it.


But its 2022, and we can’t go back to living like we’re from the stone ages. It may seem like a luxury, but our self-care is so important for our physical and mental well-being. Factoring out looking after yourself will only make the trying situation we’re living in harder.


So here at Give Me we have collated together our best money-saving ways of looking after your wallet but also keeping up with your self-care needs.


  1. Skim down on your spa treatments – We all LOVE a spa day! But if you can possibly recreate as much as you can at home. Play some relaxing music, shut the bathroom door, and relax and unwind at a quarter of the price!
    We have products specially selected from head and skin to body to make your DIY spa just as magical.

  1. Invest in skip-care – By cutting down on your product use, you can make your products last longer. Try adding more days in between washing your hair. This will help spare your favourite products, help restore natural oils to your hair and reduce water wastage! (Big one!) You can also try to use less product that you usually would do try and stretch for longer use.

  3. Try washing your hair in cold water – I know! Hear me out before you think I’m crazy. but with rising energy bills, it’s not as crazy as it sounds! Plus, the benefits of washing you’re your hair in cold water include, reduced damage, helps to lock in moisture with your products and protects coloured hair from fading! (Which also means less trips to the hairdressers!) Not sounding so crazy after all!

  1. Find multi-use products – nowadays there is a product for everything, but if you can manage to find something that doubles up in multiple ways, it’s a winner!
    For example, our cleansing balm is a gentle cleanser that doubles up as a makeup remover that hydrates and removes impurities. Alternatively, our Makeup- Remover also doubles up as a hydrating anti-ageing cleanser! Pair up with our machine washable Eco pad with either of these products for use after use, with having to buy single use makeup wipes. Cost effective on your purse and beneficial for the environment!
    In addition, our Day cream also acts as a great night cream as it is lightweight and quickly absorbs. Keeping you hydrated through the night, without the greasy residue on your face (or pillow!)
