It's a common misconception that natural products are seriously pricey! That's why I've made it my mission to prove living a toxin-free life can be affordable for everyone! Often the size difference between natural and mainstream products confuses people. The truth is that cheap supermarket products can be full of fillers, whereas natural products are more concentrated with all the good stuff. This means you can often save money with natural products as you don't need to use as much to see the same results! To learn more about buying organic on a budget... here are my top 5 tips!
1. Buy in bulk!
A great way to save money is to buy in bulk! If you find a product you love, purchasing the largest size will usually mean a discounted price per use. Here at Nourished Life many of our products have the option of buying in bulk, including the Elektra Magnesium Mineral Salt Flakes. For a lesser price of $132, you can purchase the 4kg size. This bulk pack not only lasts longer, it's also much cheaper than buying four individual 1kg bags or sixteen individual 250g bags!
2. Look for ingredients, not brands!
To achieve the most out of your skincare, it's important to look for ingredients not brands! Once you discover the ingredients that work best for your skin, you won't need to use as many products to achieve a beautiful complexion. If you're looking for products that offer deep hydration for example, keep an eye out for Argan Oil. This nourishing ingredient is also key in many of the Swisse products we have available. To combat anti-ageing, I recommend using skincare filled with Q10. This powerhouse antioxidant prevents premature ageing and improves the quality of your skin. A great day cream option is the Lavera Basis Anti-Ageing Moisturising Cream with Q10 $25.95.
3. Swap Certified Organic for all-Natural!
When shopping on Nourished Life, you don't need to worry as much about looking for certification logos. These logos can be cheap for businesses as they don't need to pay for certifications! To find the very best toxin free skincare, look out for products that are natural instead!
4. Make sure you cover the basics!
In order to save money, a great tip is to cover the basics. A fantastic example of this is using a water filter! Water filters remove all of the hidden nasties in your tap water, which means less purchasing of disposable water bottles! I find that using my Waters Co Ace 1.5L Alkaline Water Filter $169.95, even encourages me to reach for reusable glass/ stainless steel bottles. Getting enough water each day is also incredibly beneficial for the health of your skin! You won't need to be buying as many plumping and hydrating products!
5. Use Afterpay!
If you've had your eye on a more expensive item on Nourished Life but don't want to break the bank, you need to know about Afterpay! Afterpay is a new system we've introduced where you can pay for any order over 8 weeks with 4 interest free payments. This allows you to splurge without feeling guilty! It's the best way to spend your money wisely on natural skincare and beauty!
