budget friendly skincare product on a white tableWhether you’re on a budget, or interested in cultivating a more minimalist lifestyle that reduces consumerism, my new video “5 Frugal, Budget Beauty Tips” highlights ways you can:

  • Save money on green beauty (AKA non-toxic cosmetics) when you’re on a budget.
  • Maximize and extend the life of your makeup and skincare.
  • Limit your overall consumption and waste.
  • Look beautiful on a budget

When you become a more budget-minded beauty consumer, you’ll be saving money and helping conserve the earth’s resources. Double win!

If you’re over 40, I think you’ll especially appreciate tip #5, which is my favorite. (I know I shouldn’t have favorites, but I do!)

You can watch the 5 Frugal, Budget Beauty Tips video on YouTube, or right below.



Since I always get asked for the product names I feature in videos, I’ve listed them below with links to buy them in the U.S./Canada for your convenience.*

Frugal vs. Cheap

My suggestions aren’t about buying cheap cosmetics. Not all of the items featured are low-price, but they are high-quality products at various price points from green beauty brands I trust.

If used in the ways I describe in the video, you’ll get better results and savings than buying less effective, cheaper products overall.
