TAG! How Much Does Your Face Cost?

I've seen this tag going around and basically what it is, is you total up everything you use on your face in the morning. I'll be going over my typical makeup routine and my current skincare routine. I'll have to look up prices of these because I can never remember what I pay for things. This seems really fun, so here is my how much does your face cost tag! :)

Starting off with skincare:

-Aveeno Ultra-Calming Foaming Cleanser- $6.47
-The Body Shop Aloe Calming toner- $12
-The Body Shop Aloe Protective Serum- $21
-The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Lotion- $13
-The Body Shop Vitamin C Eye Reviver- $22 (they no longer have this exact product, so I priced it by the replacement they have now)
-Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 55- $7 (couldn't find the price for the SPF 55, so this price is based on SPF 45

TOTAL: $81.47

Now onto the makeup. I couldn't fit everything in one picture so I'll total each picture then do a final total:

-Sephora Anti Shine Primer- $17 (Sephora no longer has this product, however they do have another anti shine primer that's in a different package and it's the same size as this one, which I used the price of)
-Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion- $20 (old packaging, pricing from the new squeeze tube)
-The Body Shop Black Velvet Apricot Lip Balm- $6 (I honestly don't remember if this was $6. It was a holiday flavor from like two years ago but the rest of their lip balms are $6)

TOTAL: $43

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette- $50
Philosophy Melting Marshmallow Lip Shine- $10
bareMinerals Flawless Definition Mascara- $18
Maybelline Color Tattoo Eyeshadow in Bad to the Bronze- $5.84 
NYX Eyeshadow in Aloha- $4.99

TOTAL: $88.83

bareMinerals Matte Foundation in the color Fair- $27
The body Shop Blush in the color 04- $16 (they must've repackaged these blushes because different ones are on the website)
The Body Shop Lightening Touch in shade 01- $14.50
e.l.f. Tone Correcting Concealer in the color Ivory- $1

TOTAL: $58.50

GRAND TOTAL: $271.80!

Good grief! I never thought about how much all this stuff actually costs! But there you have it folks. That's pretty much everything I use on a day to day basis. There are days like today, when I'm not wearing makeup and then there are days where I add a few more things to my routine, but this is really it on a typical day for me!


  1. I've been meaning to do this tag, but my skin care routine is all over the place right now because I'm trying to finish some products (mostly samples) up. I do enjoy this tag, though!

    1. Definitely do one once you have a routine down! This was such a fun tag to do :)

  2. I will have to do this. Should be fun! Divide the total amount by the number of days in, say, six months, it won't seem so bad. For instance, your total of $271.80/180 days (6 months)= $1.51 per day!

    1. Ah I didn't really look at it like that. Although some days will be different depending on the products I use. Thanks for making it seem less harsh though momma! ;)

  3. I now what you mean! I was scared to do this tag for a while! I really like some of the same products like urban decay but I haven't tried the naked 2 palette yet. Great post!


  4. Man! That hurts to think about doesn't it! But I love The Body Shop skincare :)

  5. Great blog - these posts are always scary to see how much it adds up to! Say high to your newest follower from the UK :) Maybe you could check my blog out too?

  6. Awesome blog, nice to see a regular person giving a true review of products and not a famous person or model.

    Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sunblock SPF 55-- I started using this this summer. Love it seems to be the only sunblock I do not break out from.

    1. Agreed with the sunblock! It's been the only sunblock to not break me out either. Thank you so much for stopping by :)


Thank you for all your comments! I'll reply back as soon as I can :)
