With the birth of beauty blogging, the hype around almost ‘cult’ beauty products is ever increasing. It seems that the more desirable these products become, the higher the price tag seems to climb. With make up staples such as blusher commonly retailing for £20 and upwards these days, obtaining these universally loved products can be a little harsh on the purse strings. This was an issue recognised by Gideon Lask, founder of Buyapowa, a new online shopping website with a difference. Based on a system of ‘co-buying’ the concept of Buyapowa is to bring shoppers together into one single transaction, enabling them to receive the same discounts offered to retailers that bulk-buy their stock. Quite simply, the more people that enter the co-buy, the cheaper the product.

The beauty of Buyapowa is that the shoppers decide what appears on the website next, requests can be submitted via Twitter, Facebook and through the requests section of the website itself. As a user you can register to be notified when your requested co-buy goes live, and are then left to decide whether you wish to enter the co-buy or not. If you and your friends are all after the same product, by introducing other people to the co-buy you stand a chance of getting the item for free, the person with the most introductions receives theirs for nothing more than the £1.75 delivery fee!

With old favourites such as the YSL Touche Eclat concealer and Shu Uemura eyelashes curlers to latest revelations such as the Clarisonic cleansing system and Moroccan Oil hair products, there is something on Buyapowa for every taste. With the price of some products reduced by almost 50% at the end of many co-buys Buyapowa is definitely something to check out.

So for those looking to curb their self pampering expenditure, or just looking to save a few pennies head over to Buyapowa now, I guarantee there will be something on your wish list!
