The Luxury-Meets-Drugstore Mix Bag For Days When You Want A Bit of Both

Like pairing your favourite five-dollar white t-shirt with a pair of hundred-dollar jeans, you absolutely can go high-low with your skincare. Here's how we do it.

When it comes to finding your style, it’s all about picking the right pieces that are right up your alley. That means countless rounds of trial and error, experimenting with what works for you and what doesn’t. If anything, learning to pair patterns and textiles together is more important than mere branding. Who is to say you cannot get quality pieces at low prices? Some of our street style icons rep just that.

The same logic applies to beauty products as well. Skin conditions and reactions to a product differ for everyone, so what matters really lies in the product listing and ingredients used. An expensive product may do nothing to your skin, while a drugstore one might work magic on you. In other words, expensive may not necessarily mean good, and affordable does not mean bad either. Especially when you’re broke what with the sale season coming at you from every corner.

Drugstore products are now formidable competitors to big brands with big-ticket ingredients like Vitamin C, kaolin and natural oils being added into their repertoire. They work just as well or even better than some big brands, and that’s good news for anyone. And, with that said, it is 100 percent okay to mix them both up. It is sort of like mixing luxury labels with street labels, except this time for your skin.
