And over the years I've managed to discover a few gems among the discards.
For instance, the super cheap Stridex pads, made for acne, work as well on my skin (pores, fine lines and wrinkles) as the fancy anti-aging products ever did. I've used the sensitive skin pads for almost a year now and I'm as happy with my skin as I was when I was using the expensive prescription Renova. They don't have any alcohol in them so they're not drying, and the salicylic acid exfoliates really well. And, it costs like $4 or something crazy like that. The best thing is I'm no longer tempted to go back to the dermatologist for Renova.
So I guess there is a silver lining to 'sharing' beauty products with daughters. I do wish my youngest would come home soon, though. I'm going to need one of those hairbrushes...eventually.
Are there any unexpected 'finds' in your beauty routine?
