Recently I read a study about spending during a recession. One of the things that I found interesting was that women cut down on large purchases but increased spending on the smaller pick-me-ups such as cosmetics and self-care items. I think it's just great that, even during tough times, women instinctively know how to lift their spirits without throwing the budget out the window.

If you're on a budget or need a little lift, you don't have to spend a dime to look and feel good. Grab your Free 28-day sample of Olay Professional Pro-X.
