I don't know about you, but sometimes I do tend to get a little bored of my beauty regime. Using the same products day in and day out can start to make you yearn for new products to try out. Not because you're unhappy with what you currently use, just because it's fun to test out new products now and then.
Obviously, when you've already got a fantastic selection of products to use, it seems wasteful to randomly buy new ones to try out. The thing is, it doesn't have to be. Want to know how you can find new products that you love, without going on a major beauty product haul? I've gotten a little creative and come up with a few ideas for you.
Read reviews of products before you buy
If there's a product that you've been dying to add to your beauty regime, before you invest in it, read up. Take the time to read reviews of the product from your favourite beauty bloggers. So that you can get an idea of whether it's right for you. Look for reviews that are written by people with the same skin type as you, as this will give you a better idea of how a product will work with your skin.
Make you own soaps, face creams and scrubs
How about getting creative and making your own products? You can find plent of recipes for homemade products at Real Simple.
The great thing about making your own products is that you get to choose what goes into them. You pick the ingredients and the scents, you can tailor your products to your skin type and needs. There are plenty of ideas for DIY beauty products online. Such as on this website, www.Beauty Product Warnings.com, so you shouldn't be short of ideas.
Get testers to try out
Most beauty brands offer testers, so if you're craving new products to try, using testers is a great option. Head over to your local department store or beauty store and get testers of products that you fancy trying out. From face masks to makeup, most brands offer testers, at least most high-end brands do. It might not be as good as having a whole new product, but it's a great option as it lets you try before you buy.
Become a beauty blogger
If you're beauty product crazy and like the idea of reviewing products, why not start a beauty blog? Blogging is a fantastic hobby as it's a great way to meet new people and make new friends. Plus, if you build up a good reputation, you can collaborate with a range of brands to get free beauty products to test and review. For beauty addicts, beauty blogging is a fantastic pastime. Simply because it's a great opportunity to work with brands and test and review new products for others to have a look at how the products they're interested in really work.
So there you have it, the best way to find new beauty products to try. If you're yearning for some new products to try but don't want to go crazy on a massive beauty haul, the ideas above could be perfect for you :-)
Lots of love x
