Want to stock up on all your beauty essentials, find formulas that work for you, and save time and cash? Well, obviously.
Unlike shoes, cars, and furniture, beauty products rarely go on sale. In fact, for years, the only way to get a beauty deal was to storm a department store during gift-with-purchase week and score yours before they ran out. But the beauty landscape has changed. Thanks to the proliferation of boutiques and online stores, competition for your beauty buck is fierce, forcing retailers to find creative ways to lure you into their stores. The result: specials, samples, and a slew of free services that all translate into savings, as well as a more enjoyable and efficient shopping experience. Use these strategies to take full advantage of the new beauty benefits.
