Looking beautiful for less is possible. You just need to know where to look for the best online beauty deals.
Otherwise, monthly expenditures for grooming and primping can easily rival a family’s grocery budget: Newsweek just reported that the lifetime maintenance cost of a beauty junkie in her 30s or 40s tops $158,000!
Whether you have a six figure beauty habit, or just need a more affordable night cream, here are nine diva-worthy deals that will free up cash to save on other essentials (like shoes and handbags):
We love couture, especially when it’s a total score. This Juicy Loves Sephora Brush Set dropped from $78 to a sweet $39. It features four brushes and a heart-shaped mirror in a striped case with signature charms.
2. Travel Combos
Smashbox’s Glambox Vol. 3 Beauty on the Go comes with a mascara, cheek duo, two shadow/liner trios, three glosses and three brushes all in sizes that slip into your evening bag. It’s valued at $190, now on sale for under $50.
3. Spa Sets
Why get one gift when you can treat yourself to six? The Best of Bliss Set (reduced from $55 to $28) is loaded with six of the spa’s hottest picks, from scrubs to creams to masks, in deluxe sample sizes.
4. Serum and Moisturizer Duos
Fighting wrinkles is a serious (read: expensive) business. One of our favorite go-to treatments, Bieux Skin BioNaturals Power Lift & Repair Serum and 24 Hour Treatment Moisturizer, is buy one get one free. Spend $125 on the moisturizer and get the serum, a $97 value, free.
5. Night Cream
Amazon shaved a hundred bucks off Lancome’s Platineum Nuit Restoring & Reinforcing Night Cream which drops the price to a cool $101. Now we can afford to fight wrinkles while we sleep.
6. Face & Body Sets
Get a four-pack of Philosophy faves—hope in a jar, save me, purity facial cleanser and amazing grace shower gel—for $100, $50 less than if you bought them separately.
7. Body Treatment
We love half-off prices, especially on products designed to get rid of cellulite. Sant’ Angelica LipoShape Anti-Cellulite Cream, now under $25, is made from natural plant extracts and comes with a cool massage applicator.
It’s rare to find major savings on perfume so we were happy to find the two-piece Bijan Gift Set with perfume and body lotion, for $42 from a fat $118. Did we mention free shipping?
Tracie Martyn is an A-lister, but you don’t have to have a Hollywood paycheck to cash in on her beauty secret. E-luxury.com has her Amla Purifying Cleanser on sale from $65 to a gorgeous $39. We’re sold.
