The Pink Report: Where do you fall?
Recently, I saw an overview/teaser of The Pink Report, which is a study of Women & Walmart as Beauty and Personal Care consumers. It seems like an interesting study, if the teaser is any indication, though as a mere beauty blogger, $1500 for the full study is out of my budget!
I thought I would share with you the part that was the most surprising to me–both as a beauty enthusiast, as well as looking at my so un-beauty aware family members–that 22% of women in the study spent under $50 a year on annual beauty spending of color and facial skin care. I guess I am still continually surprised that more women (and people in general) don’t have to stick to meticulous skincare regimens (just thinking SPF and cleanser, even). I wish I could be one of those people who didn’t have to do anything to their skin! (My parents are both examples of those people!)
I know where I fall. I think even when I first got into beauty, I was there–cleanser, toner, makeup remover, SPF, and a night cream can really add up, even if you buy affordable products, on an annual basis.
