The 6 things women shouldn’t skimp on

November 3, 2015

woman-girl-young-beautyEverybody likes a good bargain. We boast about getting something at a 50% sale or saving with a generic brand or by buying second hand.

However, we would argue that there are certain things you shouldn’t skimp on. By all means be as frugal as can be in general, but not with these six items.


You are going to spend a third of your life in bed so why not make sure it’s time well spent. A poor quality, sagging mattress will give you back problems later on in life, which is going to cost you more than a proper mattress anyway.


Sure, those comfy granny panties do the job but do they do much for how you feel as a woman? You don’t have to wear fancy, expensive, frilly underwear (which is usually too uncomfortable for daily wear anyway), but good quality women’s underwear (assuming you are a woman) is definitely a must. Even if it’s only psychologically, they will make you feel better than cheap underwear will.

Skincare products

If you look after your skin now your future self will be eternally grateful. A good skincare routine is about more than buying expensive products of course, but quality is an important ingredient. As usual, you don’t have to buy the most expensive products on the market, but it is good to invest in good skincare products that suit your skin. This includes face wash, day and night moisturizer and very importantly sunscreen!


Have you ever heard the turn of the phrase, “smell of cheap perfume”? That’s because cheap perfume can be smelled a mile away and it’s not the kind of impression you want people to have of you. You don’t have to buy expensive designer labels but don’t opt for the cheapest discount bottle you can find.

Running shoes

Running is great for you, but it is not without its potential for injury. Much of the risk can be avoided if you wear proper running shoes though. Don’t make the mistake of thinking all that foot support science is just a money-making scam. You need the right shoes if you are going to run.


Out of all your makeup products it is your foundation that you shouldn’t buy on the cheap. It is after all quite literally the foundation of the rest of your makeup. The difference between high end mascara and bargain bin mascara isn’t going to be as noticeable as it is with foundation. Cheap foundation won’t blend in well or do its job properly. Don’t do that to yourself.
