Constant changes over the past year have brought on many beauty revelations. Suddenly, we’ve all gotten way more comfortable performing at-home manicures, tackling our own hair color, and even performing spa-level facials complete with top-of-the-line treatments and the latest skincare tools. But one major lesson that’s presented itself is that up to this point, many of us have been spending entirely too much money on beauty products. As a beauty editor, that’s a tough pill to swallow since I get so much joy from sampling the most spendy products out there. But on the other hand, that very activity has taught me that a product’s price tag doesn’t always determine its efficacy and that there are tons of products that cost pennies on the dollar and perform just as well.
