There is nothing worst then getting ready to do your hair, nails, or makeup and realizing that you have run out of one of your favorite products! To avoid this issue, I usually do the following to help me avoid being in a predicament where I have to make an emergency run to the nearest drugstore in order to finish a beauty regimen in progress:
- Always be sure to replace your products when you have about 2 uses left in the container. That ensures that you will not have to put the bottle upside down half an hour before using the product and pray that you will amass enough product to use.
- Take advantage of the sales!!! Places such as drug stores, will usually run a special on beauty products every month. BOGO (buy one, get one) specials are my favorite!!!! And stores like Walgreens will provide you with a rain check for a sale item if they are out of it during the sale. Always be sure to ask for a manager if they are out of your favorite product that is on sale! Be sure to check the expiration date of the rain check and all rules that may apply. Another great way of getting a good discount is with coupons! Target RedCard holders usually receive store coupons for products that you usually purchase, so after you have completed your payment, make sure that your cashier hands you the coupons that print out!
- Have an emergency backup product! An emergency backup product usually for me is a less expensive similar product to the brand that I am faithful to. While it may not give you the same results as your trusted brand, if you are in a bind in the middle of the night getting your hair ready for the week, you will be able to rock a decent hairstyle the next morning until you have a chance to swing by the store and replace the empty containers.
I hope these tips will help you avoid another crisis and will help you better prepare your supply of beauty products.
