How To Cut Costs With Clear Skin (It Isn’t As Hard As The Government Makes It Look) *Discount Code*

Hey everyone. Just for a time frame our current prime minister is Rishi Sunak so that means this post is accurate for at least a couple of weeks, give or take. I’m not gonna get much more political than that because I know you are all sick of hearing what crap is going on in parliament, so I hope you this content cleanses you from that evilness. Nonetheless, we still gonna be on the topic of how expensive everything is.

Honestly, I don’t know how valid I am for saying this as I don’t even make enough to get taxed, I don’t pay for any bills and I am in a very fortunate position. The thing is though, I love a fucking bargain and as though I didn’t get scared buying the bare minimum before, I sure as hell am now. And it’s so rude that everyone’s birthday decides to be around this time! I mean oh my days christmas is enough of a stress but now you are basically robbing me. Have some respect and get born in May or something.

Why I’ve said all that though is because I’ve been spending lots of time trying to find the best deals. The thing with me though is that I also get so pressed about the quality adn whether or not things are a scam because let me tell you what, I ain’t about to be throwing out money willy nilly even if it is 50p. That gets me half way to poundland, bitch! But let me tell you, if I was a cat I would have wasted all 9 lives decades ago because I’m a curious as hell. Any time I see something with a satisfyign instagram post or just anything with the word “discount” or “free”, you’ll catch my attention every time.

And it literally doesn’t matter what it is. 99% off a rabbit’s cage? You never know. Free hair ties for anyone living it LA? I mean I live in the UK but I can find a way. It’s actually crazy and it rarely ever works out for me. It either costs full price when you include shipping or even the 99p is looking a bit much for me. But bit’s all worth it for that 1 of 1000 things that actually is a total bargain! So why not share the fun?

Do with it what you will but these thing are genuinely tried and tested by me. I’m gonna make it a new series though so you’ll realise I am only putting in one deal today because literally that’s all I have at the moment, but just give me time! You don’t find deals like this everyday.

So why am I taking so long to literally tell you what the product is? I don’t know. So imma just say it now. The slay product that I have a banging discount for is Skin+Me and basically it is a customised facial routine from an actual professional that gets posted to you! (the products, not the professional)

And I bet you’re thinking “how the hell is that gonna be cheap, this girl is making shit up” but let me tell you something, if you go through this link here or use the code ALLISONL59MK at the check out, you can get it for FREE. Well, you do have to pay £3.50 for pharmacy tax but that’s literally it! Shipping is free and you will get your first and fifth daily doser for FREE and if you act fast you can also get free samples of the cleanser and moisturiser!

My mum always tought me that if it sounds “too good to be true“, it probably is. And I live by that, but I really I was entrigued and it actually worked out for me! We love that for us because now you don’t have to risk it!

So basically, it is cheaper to get a personalised science-proven skincare routine sent to your front door than it is to have to buy some own-brand face wash that probably makes your skin worse as well as buying a moisturiser. I don’t know about you but it isn’t a hard choice.

It’s also such a satisfying package. Like I know that is so irrelevant but for me that shit makes a difference. It’s got similar type of vibes to soap and glory where the labels are kind of sarcastic and fun instead of robot-esk, if you get me. I’ll put a photo of what my box looked like and you can see how it has my name on my literally daily doser thing and it is so fun because it comes portioned out for you. You twist it until you hear a click and then boom you’re good to go.

And you won’t have to keep remembering to reorder because they do that shit for you. They have the whole routine all worked out and when the next package is gonna be delivered. But obviously you can make changes to it yourself if you want.

Personally I have never been to big on skincare and I would be using that budget mindset and going for the cheapest thing apart from just water. And to be honest I still don’t know crap but the names sound fancy and exact so imma take it for real. I’m here staring at myself in the mirror like “damn, this hypophysosupercalafragalistic acid serum is working wonders for me”. You know that if the names of the stuff sound like they could summon some sort of devil it must be some good shit.

But for real, I hope some of you look it up and decide to look after that beautiful skin of yours. No joke though I have found my skincare routine to actually help me slightly hate myself less. I know that is cliché as fuck and for real it’s basically what they recommend in school assemblys where they are like “please don’t kill yourself, it’ll give us a bad rep. Instead drink some tea, have a bath, wash your face… get over it” and I am one of the last people who would admit that they had a slight point.

But I feel like taking that time for myself and looking for the improvements to make the £3 investment worth it has helped a lot. And I just love how it was made for me and it’s just so slay overall. What makes it so fun as well is that it’s a great convo starter either with a friend, or just with yourself if you are the type of person who likes to talk to themselves (could never be me:/). And I feel like anything that is a bargain is so much better. I say that to my friends too, like they could be wearing something so fucking ugly and then be like “I got it in the charity shop for a strand of my hair” and I suddenly start to die over it! I can just appreciate the absolute slay find. Also I feel like saying if someone sells you something for a strand of your hair, don’t do it girl. In that case it is too good to be true and I don’t want to see you made into some voodoo doll or framed for murder, ok?

Anyways, I hope you appreciated that and let me know if you do want this to become a series because I feel like it really could be fun. I’ll also let you know if something is a complete waste, so just comment if there is something you want me to test out for you and I’ll let you know if it’s worth the money! I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.

Why Does Nobody Appreciate A Bargain?

POV: it’s Saturday. You are with a friend on the train and because we are so spontaneous we say “hey, why don’t we go to Botanic instead?”. You feel crazy because you are now getting off one stop later, what a rush. You go around and live the quirky life you desired as you shop in charity shops. Then bam, in one of the last shops you go to you find the biggest bargain ever (or at least that I’ve ever seen). It’s a literal Panasonic Lumix digital camera for £20 and it’s pretty much brand new! Who am I, Bargain Hunter?

Advertisements

But then guess what? You go home completely buzzing, ready to show this win because my mum loves a bargain too (or so I thought). Then when I walk in the house like the retro bitch I am, I shove the camera in their face and go like “guess how much this was?” and they’re like “Ummm-” but they takin’ too long so I gotta but in like “£20!”. *crickets* In fact, there weren’t even any crickets. They were too busy going and wasting all their money instead of appreciating my find. What is up with these people?

Advertisements

And tell me why the fuck they turn to me and say “don’t you have a phone?” They really said that, deadass. Bitch where is this whole “when I was your age all I had was my imagination” type shit? You should appreciate me becoming a retro gal and finding enjoyment that isn’t on my phone. And anyway, did you not hear what price it was??? Like… get your ears checked girl. You know what? I’ll just take a picture of your ear with my NEW camera, so you’re welcome bitch.

Advertisements

And you never know, this could be my calling. I could become the next big photographer but they don’t give a shit. Do I have any interest in doing that? No, but I could. Maybe if they were motivational or nice then I would become a photographer gorl. But never mind, I guess this is good for my autobiography “that bargain bitch: the price you pay for appreciation”. Don’t think I’m not taking notes bitch

Sometimes, though, I have to admit that at some points all these discounts are making me pay more overall because I will buy that shit just because it’s cheap. Like I was near about to buy this wireless apple watch charger (that was probably non-functional) when I don’t even have an apple watch, all because it was like £2.50. And I was also about to buy a really small tripod that was so crusty musty that I felt sick to my stomach, only because it was 50p. To be fair, I never actually bought those things, but you better bet that I have bought some random crap. I can’t remember them all but I will list a few

  1. A ping-pong net: To be fair, we do actually have stuff for ping-pong/table tennis (whatever the difference is) so I could kind of justify it, but then again I haven’t played it since a really dark time in the third quarantine and I don’t know if I’m ready to go back there. But it’s the one that is pretty snazzy and clips onto the side of your table and you can pull the net out to whatever length you want. And guess how much it cost me? £1.50! No joke. I was loving it. Will I ever use it? Who fucking knows but now I have a great convo starter for every single time it is in my presence

2. A 10 pack of A5 booklets: Don’t even ask me what the fuck was going on here because I just want to leave that behind me. But let me tell you anyways. I was going through one of those phases where you panic because you don’t know shit about how to revise well. Then one day I was shopping, as one does, and I was in easons (RIP) and there was this 10 pack of A5 booklets. I wouldn’t have given a shit if I hadn’t seen the bright yellow sticker that said £3. I don’t even know if that is fucking worth it because I tried it for one subject and it just really stressed me out. The pages were thin as fuck and I couldn’t get it to look nice. So now, as a result, I am £3 down and have 10 useless booklets taking up room on my bookshelf. Do not recommend tbh.

3. Lastly, because I rarely regret a good bargain, I’m gonna talk about a broad topic which is buying stuff that you already have just because it’s cheaper and you never know, maybe there could be a zombie apocalypse and the only thing that stops them is another lip balm. Don’t come looking for me when you can’t find another burts bees anywhere, I’ll be living freely. It does get out of hand as some point though because it’s such a fucking waste. I have so many body lotions and face masks that are so out of date I could probably get them sent out to be used for a science experiment.

I know everyone in the comments is gonna be going on about how it’s a whole marketing tactic and that you can’t believe that I would actually fall for that, but bravo to the bitch who came up with the tactic because it is hella smart. I’m not even ashamed to admit that I will fall for it again and again and I want it to continue that way. No matter what the product is, if I see a mega discount, you better know I’m gonna go get it and then go home and brag about it to everyone. Honestly, they do get sick of it, but who is the one who can handle their money well? Maybe I’ll spend £50 on 67 random pieces of crap, but at least I won’t spend that much on fucking jeans.

Lol, yeah I guess that is all I have to say about bargains at the moment. Honestly, though, who all loves a bargain because I know I do but I feel like nobody really respects it. It never gets old. You get such a sense of pride that you somehow found something at such an amazing price and probably nobody else will get it, especially if it’s in a charity shop which is something I’ve really gotten into lately. I find it so fun to compare prices because I’ll deadass go into a shop like Pull and Bear or Stradevarious and go around point at clothes like “can you believe I literally got a top that is EXACTLY like that for £2, and they are selling it here for £39.99?! I could never” and then I’d continue that with every item of clothing until they kick me out.

And what about it? Fight me. Anyways, I hope you have a great day, stay safe and stay yourself PERIODT.
