Steal vs Splurge

Everyone deserves to have fabulous skin every day, but sometimes the wallet strings are tighter than others. Here’s a few products to get you through the rough patches:

My favorite multitaskers $35 and under:
Naked Body Butter hydrates the skin all day. Naked Body Butter is fragrance-free so I can add my perfume du jour and *poof* you’ve got a scented moisturizer that prolongs the life of your fragrance.

Best of Skintentions-BRAND NEW! Daily moisturizer and SPF in 1 easy step that prevents UVA + UVB damage. $35

Problem Salved the 20-in-1 wonder balm. Grooms eyebrows, prevents chafing and blisters, heals chafing, nourishes cuticles, and more all for $18

If you’re in the mood to splurge-my favorite multi-taskers under $80:
Bliss/Philips Bikini Perfect Deluxe Spa Edition trims, shaves, and epilates all in 1 with 6 different grooming heads. It’s shower-friendly and makes a perfect travel companion. $59.99 (if you get your under arms waxed, the Bikini Perfect pays for itself in 2 months-the epilator is extremely easy to use-I was an epilator novice and mastered the art of under arm hair removal after 2 uses)

The Youth As We Know It Moisturizer-clinical levels of 10 active ingredients that can be used day + night on face, neck, and the under eye area. $79

You can feel fab about investing in our triple oxygen instant energizing mask. Here’s how I always justify this purchase-the mask is $52 ($93 if you buy two). When I use Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask 3x/week the mask lasts me at least 5 months (I use about 6-7 pumps every use). That means it costs $8.60 (just over $2/week if you REALLY want to break it down) for an at-home masks that instantly energizes, detoxifies and brightens my skin.

And, to help you tighten your belt (literally!), we’re giving away a free full-sized Lovehandler with every purchase*

About karenglidden

My name is Karen Glidden and I’m the web content coordinator for Bliss. I will be the primary author of Bliss n Tell. For all your beautification needs, please refer to blissworld.com My background is not beauty related at all. I graduated from Boston University and worked at Starbucks for many years climbing their corporate ladder. Pre-Bliss, my idea of a milky cleanser was the residue left on my face after making cappuccinos all day. I’ve been with Bliss since October 2007 and have been converted into a product worshipper. I’m the MacGyver of skincare. I love inventing new uses to beauty products. You’ll find me putting toner on my legs to help with dry skin, wearing my glamour gloves on the subway to smooth my hands, and using skincare in my hair to tame flyaways. Oh, did I mention that I’m totally frugal. Yes, this little Bliss girl is a ‘recessionista’ for sure (hey, I still have student loans to pay off!) My skin type is normal. I’m not particularly breakout prone unless it’s stress related or hormonal. I’m not too oily, but sometimes dry all over depending on the weather. I’ve got an even skin tone and not too many fine lines, wrinkles, or hyperpigmentation. I have some sun damage from years of sun-worshipping sans SPF, my greatest skincare regret in life. My biggest skin concern are fine lines/wrinkles around my eyes and laugh lines around my mouth. Oh, and some uh….cellulite on my bum/thighs. Yes, I am human (you can stop pointing and laughing now, thanks!). My Favorite Bliss Product: I can’t choose just one. It’s a tie between Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask and A Tan For All Seasons Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask is my five minute beauty fix for just about everything (breakouts, dull/tired skin, dryness). A Tan For All Seasons is my best friend. It’s a stink-free tan in a can. I cannot live without a sun-kissed glow all year (without the UV damage, of course!)
