I am sure you have heard the expression, "One man's trash is another man's treasure", and the same might now be true for women, if the above headline is actually true, that more and more women are dumpster diving for expensive, high-end cosmetics.

Chances are, if you look in the dumpster behind some of the more expensive beauty shops, you will find useable cosmetics that have been thrown away.

Some women may return a popular face cream after just one use because they don't like it for whatever reason. The stores themselves may be throwing away test products before they're empty.

A journalist from New York named PJ Gach actually went dumpster diving and wrote about what she found.....hundreds of dollars worth of cosmetics and products from Chanel, Estee Lauder and Dior that had been thrown away.

Gach also warns that there are NO guarantees you will find anything more than just plain old stinking garbage, but you might just get lucky as she did.

Gach also says that most returned products have a sticker on them. So if you are only interested in the testers and not those products someone actually used at home, look for the stickers. So there you go ladies....glad I could help and happy dumpster diving!!
