I’m a DIY girl, no shade to ladies who get everything done, I just don’t enjoy spending my time or money on beauty stuff. I hate going to spas and getting manicures and don’t find that kind of thing relaxing at all, I’d rather spend big on travel/fun experiences.
Face sunscreen/body sunscreen- $5/month
Argan oil- $10/month
Exfoliating scrub – $0 make myself from brown sugar and olive oil, which is in the grocery budget
Moisturizing face mask- $0 make myself from honey and olive oil, which is in the grocery budget
Hair cuts- $0, I cut my own hair
Eyebrows- $0, I do my own
Epsom salts- $.25 for baths, I buy it at Costco
Razors- $5/month, from dorco, I shave it all so I go through a lot
Shampoo and Conditioner- $12, I buy fancy stuff and have super thick/long hair
Detangler- $6/month, again I get fancy stuff
Makeup- $5/month, I only buy like twice a year (cheap mascara, cheap eyeliner, nice brow pencil, cheap eye shadow)
Nails- $1.33/month, I buy two bottles a year and keep my toenails painted at all times, no nail polish on my hands as it always chips off from cooking/being active anyway
That still comes out at $44.58 a month, which seems like a lot to me since it adds up to $534.96 a year, or $5,349.60 every 10 years!
Percentage of net income spent on beauty each year: 0.7 %
