If you've yet to hear about Japanese skin-care brand SK‑II's world-renowned Facial Treatment Essence, please allow me to fill you in right now. This product has amassed many a rave review in the beauty world since its inception, so it is seriously worth knowing. You see, the award-winning essence typically retails for a head-spinning $290 at Sephora when you purchase the value size version, but believe it or not, Costco of all places, is here to save you some major moolah on the beloved skin-care product.
Thanks to the brilliant folks over at the tips-filled Reddit board SkincareAddiction, we now know that Costco, a.k.a. the massive chain of warehouses that sells everything from electronics to furniture to — you guessed it — beauty products, offers the acclaimed essence in its value size for $190. In other words, if you're a Costco member, not only are you #blessed with killer food samples while you shop, but you'll also save a cool hundo on one of SK‑II's best-selling products. And, what, I ask, could possibly be better than that?
It goes without saying, but if you're a member and happen to be on the hunt for a new essence and don't mind splurging, you should definitely jump on this discount, stat. That being said, if you're not willing to drop a hefty portion of your paycheck on one skin-care item, there's a whole host of affordable (and effective) essences you should check out. Need some recs? Here are some of our personal favorites to get you started.
