With so many NEW products popping up every week, it can be tough to stay on top of the new trends. When products first launch they are NEVER on sale and rarely cheap, but staying up with the latest in beauty and skin care doesn’t always have to be expensive. I’ve got TWO ways you can use to keep those extra coins in your pocket.
9 times out of 10 your favorite place to shop for beauty and skincare has an app. Ulta Beauty, Sephora and Nordstrom all have apps that you can make a personal account for. The Ulta Beauty app is a way to keep track of your points that you gain from shopping either in store or online. These points can be redeemed for money off future purchases. Often times Ulta also has promotions going on for double or TRIPLE the points for certain products or brands. This can help you accumulate points faster! Same goes for Sephora you accumulate points (1 point per dollar spent) and redeem them for money off your purchases. Nordstrom’s points are converted to Nordstrom Notes which are equivalent to cash off purchases in store or online. For every 2,000 points earned, a Note valued at $20 USD will be automatically issued to your Nordy Club account. Using the Nordstrom app, you may also be able to redeem points for smaller Note denominations: 500 points for a $5 Note, 1,000 points for a $10 Note, or 1,500 points for a $15 Note.
The next way to save you some coins is by far the easiest.
I’m sure you’ve probably noticed that beauty box subscription services have skyrocketed over the last few years. They are a great way to try out products without the overwhelming decision of which new products you should purchase first. The subscription box services hand pick products for you based on your own preferences. They usually give you a questionnaire when you sign up and ask you about your skin type, hair type, and beauty preferences. Then, you pay a monthly fee to receive a set of new products every month! A few of the services include Birchbox, Ipsy, BoxyCharm, Allure and Deck of Scarlett.
P.S. The subscription price is usually less than the price of just ONE of the products you’ll receive! Awesome right?
Hope this helped beauties! Happy shopping!
