The web can be a great place to find deals on your favorite beauty products. Unlike a make-up counter, you can shop and explore sites without the added pressure to buy an item. Popular beauty companies like Prescriptives and Lancome have web sites that offer free or reduced-cost shipping and free sample products for customers. Here are some of my friend Dee and my favorite beauty sites:
For all-in-one basic shopping, the Drugstore.com and Cvs.com sites are comprehensive, easy to navigate and offer free shipping on purchases over $25 and $49 respectively.
For more wide-ranging beauty selections, Gloss.com is a tried-and-true favorite, with a large selection. Blissworld.com brings a selection of quality products from its chain of east coast spas directly to you. Beautyofasite.com has an “As Seen In” section, where you can make purchases based on the recommendations of your favorite magazine editors. And you should definitely stop by Beauty.com to sift through their incredible collection of products; the site has very helpful and detailed descriptions. Ballbeauty.com offers permanently discounted beauty and hair supplies. The website is not as well organized as some others, but the assortment makes the confusion worthwhile. Lastly, stop by Lipmedic.com, because a girl can never have too much lip gloss! Pick up a different treat for your lips for every occasion—from cantaloupe-flavored to vegan, in tubes and in tins.
For alternative products, BigelowChemists.com is the oldest apothecary in America.” Carolsdaughter.com offers wonderful self-made bath and body products. The site also features great sets to give as gifts. Kiehls.com offers quality products, largely made of all-natural ingredients. LUSH.com profers cruelty-free bath and body products on a fun and lively website. And TheBodyDeli.com offers organic products that look good enough to eat!
To smell your very best, check out Fragrance.net a comprehensive site with over 5,000 fragrances. This site also offers free shipping, free gift-wrapping, and samples with every purchase. Moreover, LuckyScent.com keeps you up-to-date with the latest trends in fragrance, and the site also offers a lot of products in trial size.
