This week I decided to do a different post. I was curious to know how much I spend on my hygiene/daily products I use. To be more specific, how much does my face cost each day? Well, we are about to find out!

0.65 mL/day ($0.05/day)
For the longest time, I was using a 2-in-1 shampoo/conditioner (which may be the culprit to my dry scalp). When I switched shampoos, I had to pick up a separate conditioner. I decided to go with the Rocky Mountain Forest Mint Conditioner as it was similar to my shampoo. The consistent smell is a bonus!
0.94 g/day ($0.15/day)
With my dry scalp issue, I decided to stop using hair gel. Most hair gel products contain alcohol and other ingredients that dry your skin. Rocky Mountain Pomade allows me to use significantly less product compared to hair gel, but with a similar style. My hair is very finicky when it comes to styling, so I find myself using more product than I probably should.
0.1 mL/day ($0.07/day)
After finishing another successful ‘Movember’ last year, my wife challenged me to grow out my beard for an entire year. I have never grown out a full beard but have to say I am happy with it so far (considering the maintenance involved with it). I am currently using Rocky Mountain Sandalwood Beard Oil to keep my beard healthy and hydrated. This stuff smells awesome too!
1 razor per month ($2.63/month)
I have been using Dollar Shave Club razor blades for a few years now after being forced to replace my first-ever razor. While I am growing out my beard, I am using my razor significantly less often and can get away with using one blade per month. Nowadays I am using my razor to touch up certain areas on my face/neck.
I personally recommend signing up with Dollar Shave Club as it is convenient and flexible. Picking a delivery schedule that works for you (mine is every 4 months) ensures that you are swapping your razor blades as often as you should and need. Plus, you avoid the issue I went through where retail stores may stop selling your previous razor blades. If you sign up for Dollar Shave Club using our link, you will help support The Couples Blog which is much appreciated!
Here is a bonus item I use daily to style my beard. What I really like about Rocky Mountain’s Beard Comb is that it has three different ‘sizes’. Depending on what area you are combing (moustache, cheeks, neck, etc.), you can use either side of the comb to get the look you want.
With everything broken down (not including the beard comb), how much does my face cost? It turns out that I spend about $0.66/day which is significantly less than I expected. I have to admit I am happy with that amount as I was thinking it was closer to $1-2/day. Always feels good knowing you are spending half as much as you thought!
