    God knows we go through a hell of a lot of shampoo and conditioner (7 people 2 with waist long and 1 mid back length)
    Same with soap.

    But while I personally don't use razors or the like we go through them like they are going out of fashion with 2 men and 2 teens shaving daily.

    No creams or make up for me and the girls use their own money mostly for theirs.

    I cut everyone's hair.

    Actually now that I think about it, I do spend $12 a week on moisturiser. So that's $600 already per year...

    I don't know if I even want to think about this..... but here goes...
    Waxing every 6 weeks X $90 = $720
    Haircut every 8 weeks X $110 = $660
    Shampoo and conditioner = approx $150
    Makeup/skincare - not much, seem to have reaction to everything, so really only use rose hip oil and maybe mascara = approx$200
    That is all I can think of, trying to do a budget at the moment, so must include these things in!

    This is approx per year:

    Face stuff $600
    Waxing $360
    Haircuts $250
    Makeup $250-$300

    I don't count razors and shampoo as I get that in groceries and also the shampoo is used by everyone. I usually need to replenish skincare and makeup every 3 months, I don't colour my hair and have stopped getting blow dries to save some money (also I go straight home to bed after so it's a waste of money). It's amazing how much cheaper cuts are without a blow dry!
    I've recently started using some dermalogica products again mixed in with other cheaper ones so my skincare is the most expensive. Makeup is fairly modest in price too. I'm not too phased by what I spend over the course of the year. I don't do nails or go crazy with anything else really. I'm pretty chuffed I don't have to colour my hair, that costs a bomb!

    Literally about $15/year on shampoo & conditioner.
    About $40/year on moisturiser, one tub lasts me about a year.
    $10 a year for a thing of mascara.
    I let my leg hair grow free, and use an epilator for armpits & nether regions so that was an $80 cost that has lasted me over 10 years.
    And I cut my own hair at home.
    ...I think that's it?

    I'd find it hard to work it out!
    I don't spend a lot anymore. I used to buy top end products
    when I lived in the UK, but things seem pricier here plus money is tighter now. And I'm rocking the mum look :-P But I do get my hair cut regularly.
    So,
    Haircuts $300 (home salon prices)
    Waxing supplies (have my own hot wax heater) $50
    Make up $150 (whatever is on special at chemist warehouse!)
    Razors, facewash, shampoo, etc all cheap stuff, just bought with the weekly shop. I use Aldi body wash, Head and shoulders 2 in 1, and me and DH share the shaving gel. Lol.
    I actually really like the Aldi lacura sensitive face moisturiser. It's great for my dry skin and very cheap!
    I would like to treat myself a bit more again in the future when I am able.

    I have worked it out to be about $2000 which surprise me!
    I've recently switched to go-to skin care though which compared to my sorbolene has taken me from $8 a year to around $500. BUT for the first time even my eczema has GONE! So worth it.

    Hair is by far my most expensive, $200 every 6 weeks = $1700 p.a.

    I use shampoo which is from memory $30 for 1L which lasts about 3 months so $120 on shampoo

    Fortnightly eyebrow wax $20 x 26 = $520

    Makeup - I buy supermarket / Priceline stuff usually, maybe $30 per month = $360

    Skin care - I was buying more expensive stuff but it wasn't making a difference so went back to supermarket stuff, probably costs around $20 per month = $240

    I get a few pedicures a year, so maybe $120 for that, but otherwise paint my toenails with nail polish I already have which lasts me forever

    So in total, approx. $3,060 per annum. And I still don't feel pretty 😱
