How Much Is Your Face Worth?

Another tagged post from me today, and this one's courtesy of Jess who blogs over at Lovely Jubbly (the creator of the #BlogYourSocksOffSeptember challenge!). Jess was tagged herself by Lisa from Lisahh-Jayne, and when she decided to tag everyone reading the post who wanted to do the challenge, I decided to give it a go!

Basically the idea is to take a look at your everyday products, add up the total and see how much you spend on your face. I've included my skincare and brushes as well as my make-up, so have done it all in sections (at the non-discounted prices) and then added it up separately. You can see what I use on a 'normal' day here:
Clockwise from top left: Superfacialist cleanser, Garnier moisturiser, Superdrug serum, Bourjois foundation, EcoTools brush, Body Shop foundation brush, Body Shop eyeshadow brush, Real Techniques brush, Urban Decay mascara, Benefit palette, Body Shop night cream, Rimmel concealer, Benefit blusher

Superfacialist by Una Brennan Rose Hydrate Creamy Cleanser - £7.99
Superdrug Simply Pure Hydration Serum - £4.59
Garnier Skin Naturals Moisture Match - £5.99 (I'm using up the free samples I've got of this at the moment but will invest next week when they're finished)
The Body Shop Vitamin E Nourishing Night Cream - £11

Total:  £29.57

Bourjois 123 Perfect Foundation in 51 Light Vanilla - £10.99
Benefit Big Beautiful Eyes palette - £24.50
Rimmel Hide The Blemish Concealer in 001 Ivory - £3.99
Benefit Sugarbomb blusher - £23.50
Urban Decay Supercurl mascara - £15

Total: £77.98

Body Shop foundation brush - £12
Body Shop eyeshadow blender brush - £10
Real Techniques blusher brush - £9.99
Eco Tools Airbrush concealer brush - £5.49

Total: £37.48

Grand total £145.03 *clang as jaw hits floor*

Blimey that's a lot! I'm not surprised that the vast majority of that is make-up to be honest as there are three premium products in there, but they were all bought as presents and the eye palette and blusher have lasted for ever, so in my mind it's a worthy investment. That said I think this is also a good indication not only of the range of products available at lots of different price points that still work really well. It'd be interesting to do this post on a regular basis and for other products as well, as I'm in the process of working out what works for me and of having to seriously economise on make-up (though I do have lots of nice bits that were bought as gifts which I haven't cracked into yet) so I'd like to see how the cost of my face changes with time.

I'm not tagging anyone specific but if you're reading this post then please feel free to do the challenge!

Do you prefer premium products or are you more a drugstore girl? Are there any products where you prefer to spend more and others a bit less? What products do you use on your face every day? And how much do you think your face is worth? Let me know in the comments and have a great day!
