Over the past year there has been a surge in members-only shopping destinations but, until now, there hasn’t been a site solely dedicated to beauty products. Luckily, we have just stumbled across The Skinny, a site that is focused exclusively on luxury skin care products and spa services with discounts of up to 70% off retail!
Once you sign up, you’ll receive a weekly email announcing all the new sales. With big names like Perricone MD, Dermaquest and Lisa Hoffman, the money you can save is huge but the stock is limited, so you need to get in early.
On a side note, The Skinny goes beyond big discounts. Co-founders Lauren Fornes and Paige Steinman wanted to provide a fun-yet-educational way of learning about skin care. Fornes, a licensed aesthetician, puts together short and highly entertaining video clips on each weeks picks. They also deliver personalized product recommendations based on your skin type, concerns and product preferences.
This is definitely a great way to experiment. Personally, I know that there have been many times that I have wanted to try a pricier brand, yet I don’t want to shell out the dough on something I’m not sure will work. Even if it’s a one-time-deal, I’d certainly give it a shot if it was 70% off.
If you’re interested in The Skinny, membership is available by invitation or, for a limited time, by visiting ShopTheSkinny.com.
