Once upon a time there was a beauty-product loving princess who wouldn’t dream of stepping into the bath without her favorite $35 a tube perfumed shower gel, then rubbing a squirt of $80 a bottle anti-aging lotion onto her shower-fresh skin.
Ahhhh, the good life. The stock market was hitting unprecedented highs, and our princess was thinking early retirement.
Then the recession hit, leaving the pricey product princess’ old age nest egg in the toilet.
Faced with the possibility of pushing a shopping cart through the park in her golden years, or even worse having to smile at homely babies...er, um... adorable cherubs at the entrance of her local Walmart, our princess had to make some cutbacks.
Now her bath regimen consists of the budget-friendly Suave Naturals Body Wash in Tropical Coconut and Suave Skin Therapy Cocoa Butter with Shea Lotion.
Both discount potions are rich, creamy and smell wonderful, making the affordable feel surprisingly luxurious. Best of all, at about $2 each, they leave her with cash to stash!
Don’t be shy fellow princesses. Come on, tell me. What are your recession concessions?
