Women constantly feel the pressure to spend due to elaborate marketing techniques by companies. Many advertisements are geared specifically towards women and include promises of stellar results on beauty products, hair products, and other items that companies insist women need to look and feel beautiful.
But are these products really needed, or can they be skipped? We’re going to share a few money saving tips for women when it comes to beauty products and the first tip is to ditch the pink!
Did you know that many products that are in pink packaging or 'feminine' looking packaging contain the same or nearly the same ingredients as the products sold on the shelf for men? Next time you’re buying shampoo for example, look at the ingredients between the two - they will both do the job, but the one in pink or more feminine packaging always tends to be priced more.
So in order to save money, don’t focus on the products marketed towards women; focus on the ones that have the ingredients you want or that work best for you. By not getting caught up on the packaging, you’ll tend to save money.
