While we all would love regular trips to the spa, the truth is we can’t all afford weekly beauty treatments like massages, manicures, facials and laser hair removal!
I’ve found some great at-home beauty treatments and spa-substitutes to help carry you through those ‘in between the salon’ times:
GEL MANICURES: Sally Hansen Salon InstaGel Strips Manicure Set
—Instead of paying upwards of $30 for a gel manicure, you can grab this Sally Hansen set (and refills usually run around $13).
Just like all CVS beauty purchases, shoppers have 60 days to return any products they purchase for any reason.
Benefits are the same for Nail HQ purchases! All Beauty Club members get $5 back in ExtraBucks Rewards for every $50 spent on qualifying beauty products.
LASER HAIR REMOVAL: TRIA BEAUTY Laser Hair Removal
If you’re looking for a more permanent solution to hair removal, the FDA-cleared Tria Hair Removal Laser uses the same laser hair removal technology found in the doctor’s office in the convenience of your home for freedom from constant shaving and waxing. It retails at $395 at www.triabeauty.com which I realize doesn’t look like it falls in the ‘budget’ category, but when you consider typical laser removal necessitates multiple office visits and costs thousands of dollars, this is cheap in comparison!
*Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System
—I found this at CVS a couple years ago on sale AND with free facial cleanser! It’s under $30 and considering the competition is around $200, you can’t beat it, even if you don’t use it everyday.
*Hydroxatone Essential Beauty Box ($49 at Ulta & Ulta.com) & Instant Face Lift $55
—before going under the knife, try a topical alternative that has been proven like this one!
*Willa Naturals Skin Care – start young, stay young (great for any age – paraben free, sulfate free, DEA free) – $14
—P.S. Look to teen or even men’s products when it comes to skin care – often times they’re more natural and less expensive than female counterparts!
*Vitacost “Be Well” Box
—for $13.99 you can get some of the best health and wellness products sent right to your doorstep each month, with no long term commitment! Plus, when you sign up for Vitacost, you can earn $10 towards a $30 purchase.
