Choosing store-brand products can save shoppers up to 40 percent; More than half of women don’t use coupons and discount codes on cosmetics according to new national poll
Yonkers, NY – There are many ways to save on makeup and skin-care items, but 56 percent of women say they don’t take advantage of coupons and discounts codes, according to a new national poll from ShopSmart.
The poll is part of a feature on beauty-saving secrets in the June 2013 issue of ShopSmart magazine, from Consumer Reports, that highlights ways to get gorgeous for less, including four new money-saving trends and the best places to score beauty bargains.
“There’s no reason to overpay or to miss a potential deal when buying beauty items,” said Lisa Lee Feeman, editor-in-chief of ShopSmart. “Also consider store-brand beauty products – if you like them, the savings can be worthwhile in the long run.”

To find out which national retailer has the best beauty bargains, ShopSmart asked secret shoppers across the country to price six name-brand and comparable store-brand beauty products at CVS, Target, Walgreens and Walmart. Two of the items featured in the price scan – facial moisturizers and facial cleansers – are two of the three top products women are most brand loyal to according to ShopSmart’s poll.
