Initial up front costs can save you a lot in the...
(Taken from my blog, "Secrets to My Success")
I did a cost comparison in college on two skincare brands I'd used. One was Clinique which most middle-class women and teens deem affordable and yet "better" than over-the-counter cleansers. The other was a much more expensive and high-end Clarins Paris. I looked at the initial setup costs and then how long they lasted. While Clinique was cheaper up front, Clarins outlasted Clinique by several months and gave me a much greater complexion. One jar of their gentle cleansing cream lasted me a year. Skincare products are like haircare products-the more expensive and better quality you get, the less you have to use.
