I love to shop for beauty products. I like trying new stuff. I usually get most of my skin care products at Ulta. I’m a rewards member and often have coupons. I really like Neutrogena Rapid Tone Repair Moisturizer with sunscreen. It has a broad spectrum SPF of 30, which is crucial. I’ve been using it for about 6 months now. The bottle is 1 ounce and lasts me about a month, using it every day. I have seen a marked improvement in the tone of my skin. I had a few sun spots that have virtually faded to nothing. It has also softened some of my wrinkles.
I’ve been spending around $20 a month for one bottle. I try to get it on sale when I can. After doing some research, I’ve discovered that EBay has the best price. I recently paid $10.50 for my last bottle of my new favorite day cream.
Today I checked the price on several websites, they are as follows:
Walmart.com-$17.97, Ulta.com-$21.99, Walgreens.com-$23.49 and Ebay.com $12.50 with free shipping. I recommend buying products you use all the time on EBay. I did buy a ROC moisturizer a month ago on EBay for half of what it normally costs. I read positive reviews; however it ended up irritating my skin, so I stopped using it. Had I bought the ROC at Ulta, I could have returned it.
Make sure to check for an expiration date when shopping on EBay. Sunscreen will break down after one year, and not be as effective.
EBay is a great place to buy perfume too. I have purchased perfume that I haven’t been able to find anywhere else for a reasonable price. I can’t remember the last time I bought fragrance at a department store. The best value on fragrance seems to be when you buy a gift set. One thing I have noticed on fragrance lotion is, once it’s opened the scent doesn’t last for very long. If you aren’t going to be using it the all the time, I would skip it.
I love when I can shop from my couch and get great deals. Plus no coupons to clip!
