Beauty Buys

Costco may not spring to mind as a go-to spot for beauty buys, but our research shows it's a great place for deals on many products you can stockpile, especially hair and skin care items. In store, Costco members can find good buys on drugstore staples and some salon-quality items in-store, but if you're in search of something special, don't forget to go online — Costco's website has an impressive range of luxury beauty products for less.
