Note: Many of these products are actually pretty expensive.
Original price of these:
3Lab: $52 for 4.4 oz
Blue Lizard: $16 for 5 oz
Murad: $26 for 6.75 oz
Witch hazel: $3 for up to 24 oz
Garnier: $7 for 1.7 oz
Puristics: $20 for 1.7 oz

How did I get these, though?

3Lab: MyGlam (Ipsy) Glam Bag, $10 monthly subscription (along with a bunch of other products)
Blue Lizard: Buy One Get one 50% off, so net = $11 for 5 oz 
Murad: Sephora gift bag (free)
Witch hazel: Drugstore
Garnier: Drugstore
Puristics: Sale of a sale, $2 for 1.7 fl oz

Thus, I probably paid about $25 for everything. And this includes tax and stuff.

So, yes, while I do have these high-end products, I'm trying to make astute decisions about where to buy what products. I saved about 80% on these products.

For all my Frugal buyers out there - being a student for the past 18 years of my life, I definitely understand the needs of buying on sale, things that are gifts, etc. For example, I do have a Sephora gift card that I got from one of my friends, but I'm trying to save up for it because I want to use it when I know I want to buy something that I can't get anywhere else more affordably. No worries. At all.
