💎 Melanie’s Affordable Crystal Etsy Shops Masterlist 💎

Here’s a list of Etsy shops I’ve found that sell affordable crystals and stones! These are only the ones I’ve discovered so far, so please add on or message me if you have any more (especially if they sell bulk for cheap!). Who doesn’t love lots of crystals and stones for low prices?!

I’m moving out in 3 days and I have wayy too much stuff to take with me. I have a ton of candles that I made awhile ago and haven’t sold on Etsy yet, and unfortunately I can’t take them with me. I cannot bring myself to throw them away, so I’ve marked them down to $1 for 4 oz candles and $2 for 8 oz candles. If you have the time please check them out or reblog this! Shipping is only $5.50! They are all handmade with 100% soy wax!

Skin Care on a Budget

As much as I love luxury beauty products, it’s only realistic to accept that not everyone can afford the luxury price tag. (tbh I can’t either) Here’s some examples of cheap skin care routines and products.

Consider that each product will last you, with daily use, about 3 months. This can vary on many factors, but I’ll stick with 3 for simplicity’s sake. So, that 30-something dollar toner might seem pricy, but if it’s 300ml in size, it should last you a long time, making it more affordable.

Also, for the cheapest possible routine, stick to the 3-4 necessary products for proper skin care. In the following sample routines, I will put an asterisk (*) next to these necessary products. Of course, a routine with more products with more quality formulations will give you, well, MORE. However, if you’re choosing between rent and a $80 serum, you should probably choose rent.
