Average Woman Wastes $300,000 Worth of Beauty Products in Her Lifetime
As someone who has been married over a decade, I know that a woman's side of the bathroom is just a tad bit larger than the man's side. What-with-all their fancy makeup and lotions and perfumes and nail polishes and shower gels...well, you get the idea.
While I knew most of it never gets used much, I didn't realize it was this bad!
According to a new survey, the average woman wastes $300,000 worth of beauty products in her lifetime!!
Women buy 6,495 different products, including 840 moisturizers, 360 nail polishes, and 300 lipsticks and only use 10% of them. So, they spend about $330,000 on all this and waste 90% of it.
Topping the list of things women waste the most include:
- Nail polish
- Shower gel
And here I am worried about throwing away a toilet paper roll if it has one sheet left on it!
The study also found that men buy 960 products over their lifetime, or about 12 a year, and they use all of them. But, one in four men admit to dipping into their wife's supply of goods.
Now, excuse me while I go paint my nails in "gorgeous green".
