I’ve been a Costco member for a few years now and have shared some beauty finds in the past. Costco Beauty is a veritable treasure trove of desirable products at even-more-desirable prices. Arguably, if you have a makeup/skincare/haircare habit, the savings on some of these finds alone more than pays for the membership if you were planning to buy them anyway.
Here are some neat things I came across recently. I haven’t purchased most of these items, but either want to at some point or think they’re probably interesting enough to some people to share.
The standard Amope Pedi Perfect is the recipient of several consumer awards as well as overwhelmingly positive reviews. Between 4.5 and 5 stars virtually everywhere, the Pedi Perfect typically retails for $30-36 for the device itself with only one head. Costco regularly carries the Wet & Dry variety, which is waterproof and therefore safe to use in the shower, for $40; the Wet & Dry variety typically goes for $50+ elsewhere. Costco’s package includes FIVE replacement rollers heads, which retail for $20 for a pack of two, plus a storage bag. Bonus: You DON’T have to be a member to order this from Costco.com, but there is a non-member surcharge of a couple dollars. This is the best value I’ve found via Costco Beauty to date.
This popular Murad serum goes for $65 at Sephora and Ulta in the same quantity. Even with a 20% off Platinum Perk or the November VIB sale, it drops to $52…so the $43 price tag Costco has it for is a steal. People have luck fading acne scars, sun spots, and age spots with this.
I’m personally not too interested in this highlighting concealer that is designated as a holy grail product for many, but shades start at $24 and go up to $32. Like everything else on this list, that represents a significant savings over the retail price of $42. The catch is that they carry a limited range of shades (two at the time of writing this).
If you’re chasing the no-makeup makeup look, Costco carries several Perricone MD options. They rotate a good bit, but the above products are each $10-20 off retail. Bonus: Some of them are not member-only!
Ever watch a Guy Tang video? His antics are a bit much for me, but he preaches the glory of Olaplex. The research I’ve done seems to corroborate his high, enthusiastic praise. If you want to try the real-deal take-home product (instead of the far less expensive Sally Beauty version), you can score a two-pack for $33. My salon doesn’t use it so I haven’t tried it.
If you’re looking for a Buy it For Life hairbrush and have $125+ you have nothing better to do with at the moment, you can get a Mason Pearson for $45-55 off retail – or $125 for the Junior and $150 for the Popular. This is too rich for my blood especially considering how much I adore my Wet Brush (only $9), but that doesn’t mean it might not be relevant to you or another reader’s interests.
As highlighters go, Becca is still relevant – and if you’re looking to test the waters of their poured cream version, Opal is available for $8 off retail. Occasionally, they carry the Pressed and Liquid varieties.
I haven’t found this on Costco.com, but I bought my Silkn Revit for $65. I really love this device and how it fits into my skincare routine. Review coming before the end of the month!
The Bottom Line
If you have a Costco membership already, shopping Costco Beauty for products you intended to try anyway is a great way to save. If you don’t have a membership, some products can be purchased without. Otherwise, the $55 standard membership fee quickly pays for itself in what you could save here, let alone the other stuff the store has to offer.
