My oldest daughter is a self-proclaimed beauty junkie. I kid you not, she has boxes of expired product stashed all around my house because she can’t bear to throw it away. At this point in her life, she’s subscribed to three different monthly beauty boxes and/or bags and I’m absolutely certain that, given the funds, she’d add one or two more to that list. Beauty boxes, she says, are a great way to get expensive products on a budget. The downside is that they typically come in itty-bitty sample sizes, so if you find something you like, you get a day or two of luxurious pampering before you’re left with a teeny-tiny, very empty bottle.
I’ve watched her run out of her fabulous little finds for months, all the while thinking: there has to be a better way to save money on luxury. And there is! I may not be able to convince my stubborn daughter, but maybe I can convince you: Perfectly Posh prides itself on offering spa-quality products at a seriously affordable price, and they’re full size to boot.
To prove my point, I’ve taken 3 of my daughter’s subscription minis, found Posh replacements, and tallied the savings. The end result is pretty darn impressive.
Vine Vera Resveratrol Merlot Moisture Day Cream vs. Perfectly Posh’s Never Grow Up Face Cream
Both are filled with Glycerin, shea butter, and botanical extracts but the Vine Vera cream retails at $146 for just under two ounces, where Never Grow Up Face cream is $24 for 1.5 ounces.
White and Elm Rosehip and Argan Antioxidant Serum vs. Perfectly Posh’s Dawn on Me Daytime Facial Oil
Both contain jojoba, grapeseed, argan, and citrus oils and vitamin E, only White and Elm retails for $28 an ounce and Dawn on Me retails for $10 less at $18 an ounce.
Palmetto Derma Rejuvinating Antioxidant Mask vs. Perfectly Posh’s In a New York Minute
Both contain glycolic acid, kaolin, and aloe but where Palmetto Derma’s mask is $64 for under 2 oz., Posh’s In a New York Minute is $18 for two full ounces.
Total Savings: $178
