A Bounty of Beauty Bargains and Deals Awaits at Your Local Warehouse Retailer
Supersized soaps from Molton Brown? Bargain eye kits from Stila? Beauty standards bigger than your head from Bliss to Kiehl’s, Cetaphil to Olay? Is this heaven? No, it’s Costco. Next time you’re in the warehouse stocking up on TP and trail mix be sure to visit the beauty department, where the selection is bound to surprise and delight. Here are a few standouts and some pointers for shopping wisely.
Kirkland Signature We know that our readers take beauty seriously and might balk at the thought of a store brand. Not so fast. Costco’s private label means bargains on a vast selection of Borghe
Dreaming of the right to live in flip flops? Are you counting down the days to sandal season with the same relish as your kids have for the last day of school? Summer is nearly here and that means strippy heels and open toed slingbacks are coming out of the closet.
Finally, a chance to let your feet breathe after months of confinement! But if the idea of baring your toes keeps you shivering in knee high boots long into spring, you’re not alone. Women tend to be very hard on our feet, from squeezing them into torturously high heels and narrow points to pounding the pavement in shoes that lack the proper arch support.

AMLACTIN 12% MOISTURIZING CREAM – Got dry skin? Bumps on the backs of your arms and thighs? Cracked heels and elbows? Amlactin is an all purpose skin moisturizer containing lactic acid (made from sour milk). It is especially good for really dry skin in need of repair. The bumps on your arms and thighs are called Keratosis Pilaris, and are basically clogged follicles. These are really common in tween and teen girls as well as adult women. Lactic acid is the answer to getting rid of them – and you can use this cream daily without any problem. It doesnt smell very nice, and the tube is not too sexy, but it gets the job done. This range is usually found behind the pharmacist’s counter rather than on drugstore shelves, or you can also get it online. If you cant find Amlactin, look for another similar brand Lac-Hydrin Cream or ask your pharmacist to order it for you. Your skin will thank you for it. P.S. You can use it on your face, but I wouldnt recommend it. It is not elegant enough for a facial moisturizer and can leave your skin feeling sticky.
FINAL VERDICT – BOB (BEAUTY ON A BUDGET) – For about $12.99 at your local pharmacy, you can’t beat this body cream. Also available in lotion formula. If you use a lot of it, we found a case of 12 for $185 on Amazon.com.
