We’ve all seen how cosmetics are sold online and online retailers like Amazon and eBay can be incredibly lucrative.
But what about how much they actually cost?
It’s an ongoing debate about the value of cosmetic products and if buying from brands is a good or bad decision.
It’s a controversial topic.
The new book, Beautyblenders, reveals that the beauty industry is a business, not a charity, and that there are big differences between how consumers are presented and the products they buy.
The authors found that consumers often think cosmetics are only for wealthy people and that it’s often cheaper to buy from a low-end, “cheap brand” such as CosDNA or Sephora.
And there are many other reasons to be wary of cosmetics.
For example, the study found that most cosmetics consumers were more likely to have received “free samples” from retailers like Sephara, Sephalia, and La Mer and that they were also more likely than other consumers to have been given free samples from big-name brands like Estée Lauder, Chanel, and MAC.
We’ve got a list of 10 tips to help you decide whether buying cosmetics is worth it. 1.
Buy from a reputable online store with reputable products.
When shopping online, you can save up to 60 per cent on a single purchase.
If you’re buying from a major online retailer, you may be able to save more, because they have the lowest prices on the internet.
CosDNA’s site is the cheapest online retailer we checked, with a 20 per cent discount on all cosmetics purchases.
Be aware of potential health risks.
Many online retailers are not properly tested, and they can contain ingredients that can make you sick.
These ingredients are often used to make products like lotion, lotion with SPF and sunscreen.
So if you’re going to be using a lotion on your face, you might want to check the ingredients before you buy.
Be wary of products made by brands who are known to have poor environmental and ethical practices.
There are a number of products that have been linked to the use of slave labour, including MAC, Burt’s Bees, and Dr. Martens.
While the majority of brands have an environmental policy, there are brands that have a record of ethical problems.
You can read more about the links to these brands here.
Cosmetics that contain the ingredients of palm oil, coconut oil, or animal by-products are also not ethically acceptable, so these are also often bought at cheaper online retailers.
Know the ingredients in your skin care products.
It may seem obvious, but it’s important to know what you’re using and how it affects your skin.
Many brands of products contain ingredients known to cause allergic reactions, and it’s good to read labels before you purchase.
