Hold on a sec! did you say monthly? I can't even imagine spending that much for my beauty kits monthly,your sis here usually by a moisturizer and keep it for months because applying little bit of moisturizing cream is enough,no use pouring the whole bottle on my body,no joke it's true same to my facial wash,cleanser,Deo,body wash.I guess.. my sun cream is now 8 months old ha!ha!ha!

My dear sis,try not be a spendthrift and save some money for yourself,it doesn't mean that you should not enjoy your life but don't waste,and when you do that you can't go wrong once you are addicted it is not easy to overcome.Take care..and have fun!

HECK NO! If it is something that I can use without it causing sevre damage to my scalp, then I use it and I never spend more than about $5 for it. I use Neutrogena cleansing bars which are less than $2, and for moisturizer, I use whatever I can get really. I only use shampoo and conditioner for my hair, I rarely wear make-up, and I use chapstick for my lips. I do not spend a lot of beauty. I cannot. I cannot afford it. Women who spend that much for things they do not really need are only fooling themselves. It is excessive vanity, and that kind vanity is not cool. Sure, everyone has a little vanity in them, but if you spend more than one hour in the mirror, then that is when you have to question your sanity and your morals. Life is too damn short to be looking at how good you look all of the time.

maybe i'm vain but i didn't spend my time for an hour in a mirror, 10-15mins will do hahaha.. anywayz i tried using different cheap beauty products but it doesn't work good to me that's why i switched to expensive products. my skin is sensitive that's why i'm harding a hard time choosing good products that will suit me heheeh..

I guess you can call a lot of woman vein. A goon moisturizer for you face will keep you looking younger for a lot longer. It only takes $10 or $15 to get something decent to start out with. I started using moisturizer on my face when I was 20. Now I am 36, I see friends I went to school that look 10 years older than me. It has really paid off. No one can guess my age. Afford it, please........;-)

i think not only women are doing this even guys do this. my wife once bought me a bar of oatmeal soap and from then i always make a point i buy some for myself. i also use some facial wash and some hand sanitizer. i use lotion specially with my hands though on the other side my wife does not use lotion that much. i also use lip gloss specially when it is cold for sometimes i get cold sore. so lucky you for you are still single. if you get married that kikay kit will cost 200 for you and your husband.

yeah guyz are vain too, sometimes they are more vain than girls, but it doesn't mean that they are gay, they just want to feel or look good & the example of that is my uncle lol if i get married, those kikay kit will be just $50 or less coz the budget will not go into my kikay kit anymore but for the food & necessities of my family hehehe.. anywayz, long to no chat huh?

Oh, this is a funny discussion. For me, i don't really spend that much. But because i normally find the more expensive products as more effective, i consider buying some when i finally get my online earnings. :)

I only spend for my shampoo,conditioner,lotion,deo and lip gloss.Sometimes I don't bother how much I spent for that coz I seldom buy for my own,my mom is the one who always spend for my kikay kits.Besides I'm not fond of using some of the beauty products.I only spend for my needs not on my wants.hehe

Oh my daughter! You are spending too much on your beauty kits! I hope your earnings from mylot would be sufficient! Ha!ha!ha! Well I can't blame you because your Mommy here is also spending that much too. So no problem for as long as you don't ask from Mommy ha! Seriously I believe that is normal for a woman specially to young ladies like you. We really do spend a fortune to keep ourselves fresh,beautiful and fragrant all the time. Anyway, I believe it is worth the money we spend. We are working hard so we have to pamper ourselves. We deserve it.

Oh yes that is very right! ha!ha!ha! $10 dollars would not be enough because of course being vain as we are, we will not buy cheap products. We of course prefer to buy the quality ones.

Shampoo-$22.95 (last for a month) Conditioner- $22.95(last for a month) Face wash-$20 Face toner-$15.55 Face moisturizer-$20 Soap-$25 body lotion-$22 lipstick and gloss-$35.90 Deo-$5 face(powder,concealer)-$60 Whoa I never realise this till I read your post and started calculating mine. I need to spent less on products!! Look at that a total of $249.35!!! and that usually last for a month or a month and a half!! this is like a serious wake up call! Money shouldn't be spent on beauty products. It can be spend on beauty products but a controlled amount. I think I'm gonna need to start budgeting!!

wow that is alot..I don't think I spend that much on stuff like that. Lets see: Moisturizer: $6.00, shampoo: 3.23, body wash: 3.50, lotion: 3.50, Deo: 2.75, styling gel: 3.12 total: $22.10 a month. Some of the items you listed I use, but I don't have to buy them every month, maybe every couple months. Like my makeup stuff I only buy it every 2 or 3 mos.
