The beauty product industry is in full bloom. Ranging from makeup to skin and hair care, right down to producing different products for literally every part of the body, the beauty product industry has its way of grabbing consumers.

Consumer buying decisions are being heavily influenced given the sweeping array of products.  It is only natural for you to feel overwhelmed if not a little confused and end up buying products that you in fact don’t need.

Fret not, we have you covered!

Here is a list of 5 beauty products that you don’t need and shouldn’t buy:

1. Toner

Toners are used to provide for a deep face cleanse.  Most of us buy toners to remove the extra oil and grime of our faces and get rid of clogged pores. However, your face cleanser already does that.

You do not need another product in the form of a toner to remove any residual debris from your face. We suggest instead that you invest in an effective face cleanser that suits your skin and it will do the entire job in one go.

2. Anti-Cellulite creams

Cellulite is a condition where your skin appears to look like orange peels, dented, rough and lumpy. Needless to say it is unwanted and has you spending a lot of money trying to find a cream that gets rid of it. However, for the long run, cellulite cannot be removed by using creams.

The use of caffeine dehydrates the cells and makes them less visible. Retinol may thicken the skin and thus cover the lumps. Both solutions however are temporary and the condition will re occur eventually.  We suggest you ditch anti-cellulite creams and make way to the gym!

3. Foot masks

Foot masks are a product that you should definitely drop. Although the skin on your feet appears thicker, your moisturizer will do the trick. All you need to do to keep your feet soft and clean is a hot water dip followed by applying moisturizer. Feet masks are a needless expenditure and cost double the price for nothing.

4. Lip Scrub

Our lips do deserve to be taken care of. But what you don’t need is a lip scrub.  For dry and flaky lips all you need is a piece of cloth dipped in water. Rub the cloth on your lips and achieve the same effect you would with a lip scrub that costs twenty times as much.

5. Shaving Cream

This one may come as a surprise. But shaving creams are really an unnecessary spend nowadays. They used to be vital for softening hair follicles for easier removal.  However, now you can use your conditioner or shower gel to the same effect.

Most shower gels contain glycerin which helps retain moisture making the shaving process easier.  Ditch your shaving creams and give this a try!

It is easy to get carried away when buying beauty products. After all, everyone wants to take care of themselves and look their best. However, it is also essential to shop smart and we hope our list of 5 beauty products you really don’t need helped!
