Where do I begin? I don't even remember the price for most of the stuff I use. The cheapest ones are aloe vera gel, honey, tea tree, oregano oil, and lemon juice which I sometimes use topically. 

I use Mineral Fusion products which are all relatively cheap ($7-$15 dollars for a scrub and toner). But then I also use more expensive stuff from Image cosmetics because they use mostly natural ingredients that don't break me out. The Image cleanser I use costs around $25-27 dollars. 

Cover FX SPF primer - $30 (normally $36, I got a discount but still SO expensive)

Various drugstore concealers, from $7-$12 (still haven't found one that matches my skintone)

Smashbox Liquid Halo foundation - $42 (now I know where my paycheck goes, lasts about 2 months if I use it regularly)

Backup foundations - Bourjois healthy mix foundation - $12 (lasts a long time), Lilly Lolo mineral foundation - $18, Meow cosmetics finishing powder - $16 (lasts a long time)

Boscia blotting paper - $10

Desert essence lip balm - $3, Chanel lipstick - $18, Buxom lip glosses - free with sephora points

Eye creams and concealer - usually free samples I get from the mall cos I never have enough money left for those

Now I know why I'm poor. I won't even mention the $ I spend on facials. 

PS. I don't use all this crap on my face at the same time...these are just things I have and use from time to time. 


Edited by WishClean, 03 September 2013 - 10:17 PM.

Supplements: inositol, DIM [not as frequently now!] digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips/ low acid [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3, superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme supplements, magnesium citrate [sometimes]. 

Lifestyle & Skin Care: Low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials...

Do you like primer? I've never used it before. How helpful do you think it is?

shy.gif I seem to have a problem! lol. And I didn't even add everything to that list. But I also use a lot of samples.

About primer...I think that a good foundation shouldn't need primer, just a good moisturizer. Unfortunately, if you have dry or oily skin or visible pores, you might need a primer more than a moisturizer. The primer I use can also work as a moisturizer with spf, so at least it's multitasking. It helps my foundation last longer, that's about it.

Free on a day where I don't care about how my face looks :P

I'd say 100$ on days where I do care, I have a lot of high end makeup and when I want to cover my skin I go mad with the makeup.

EEK...figured I'd chime in.  I know this is an old thread, but I figured I would go ahead and do a post just so I can pull my hair out later when I look at the numbers and the spending, lol.

 

Makeup Remover: $40 (Lasts forever though)

Cleanser: $4.00 (Big thing of Johnson & Johnson Head to Toe Baby Wash-this will be lasting me awhile)

Toner: $16.00-about 3 months

Moisturizer: $40.00, $26.00 (I use two) will last about 6 months

Eye Cream: $50.00 (sheesh) about 3 months

Foundation: $22.00, $24.00 (I'm using two different ones) will last about 6 months

Primer: $21.00- 6 months

Powder: $25.00, $38.00 (I use two different mineral powders for both oil control and concealer)

Eye Shadow....Um...I have quite a bit.  Probably best not to put a number on this for fear that the hubby may be looking over my shoulder one day....neutral.gif

Lipstick/gloss: Yeah...we won't even go there, either....crazy.gif


Current skin care routine:

 

AM

 

Rainwater Botanical's Soap for Troubled Skin

Spot treat with Acne.org's AHA

Clinique Moisture Surge Intense

Clinique All About Eyes with Baobab oil

 

 

PM 

 

Clinique Take the Day Off Balm with Adzuki Micrograin Facial Scrub (All natural-awesome stuff!)

Acne.org Cleanser for extra cleansing ( I wear a full face of makeup)

Frugally Sustainable Blemish Astringent/or Rainwater Botanical's Toner for Troubled Skin (All natural-very soothing and non-drying)

1 1/2 Pumps of Acne.org's 2.5% BP 

Clinique All About Eyes with Baobab oil

Acne.org's Moisturizer (small amount)

 

When I get home from work, I like to let my face breath, so generally, I will use Clinique Take the Day Off Balm with the Adzuki micrograins, followed by a more gentle regimen. Currently, I am using Bare Minerals Blemish Treatment on any actives...LOVE this stuff!

 

 

I've recently added a mask to my routine.  It's all natural and very cheap.  Bentonite clay and apple cider vinegar mixed with a wee bit of tea tree oil. This is great for blackheads!

 

I am currently 100% clear with this mostly natural regimen.  

 

Makeup: Merle Norman's Purely Mineral Makeup Powder

Merle Norman Aqua Balance liquid foundation

 

Primer:

Studio Gear Primer
