Last year my mom got me a Costco membership for Christmas. Seriously. Best. Gift. Ever. I use it way more than I thought I would. I love checking out some of their deals and if you are looking for some girly stocking stuffers, or maybe even a steal for yourself (I won’t judge), Costco has some great items in store right now. Let me share with you my top 10 picks (in no particular order):

10)

EOS Organic Lip Balm: $10.99 for a variety 5 pack

Compare to: $14.95 if you were to buy them individually at Target

I recently bought a 5-pack and LOVE them! They are all natural and taste delicious. Their unique shape, make them super easy to find in your purse and buying them in a 5-pack makes it easy to split up between gift recipients!

 

9)

Calvin Klein 100% Polyester Blankets: $15.49 (Queen) and $17.49 (King)

Compare to: $30+ for just the Queen size on Amazon

 I absolutely LOVE these blankets and they quickly sell out every year. They are super comfy and HUGE (which is my favorite part).

8)

Beauty Prestige Makeup Brushes: $26.99 for six brushes and a case

Compare to: $44 for six similar brushes at Sephora

Let me first start out by saying that I am very picky when it comes to my makeup brushes. I typically buy ones from Nordstrom, but bought the similar brush set from Costco last year and was really impressed with the quality. I love them because They are full size brushes (easy to handle) and apply the makeup just as well as my expensive ones. It’s also nice that by being so cheap, it isn’t the end of the world if you end up losing one of them. I would highly recommend these! Check out the reviews here.

*Not all Costco’s carry this product, so I would suggest calling ahead.

7)

YouTheory Collagen Advanced Formula (390 Tablets): $18.49

Compare To:  $19.33 + $4.95 s&h on Amazon

Now, I know the amount you save on this product isn’t spectacular, but I promise you, the product IS. Collagen is great for your joins, skin, nails, and hair and most people who have tried this product love it! Check out the Costco reviews by clicking here. I really also feel like it has also helped my fine lines that I was beginning to notice creeping in.

6)

California Pizza Kitchen (2 $50 gift cards): $79.99

Compare To: $100 anywhere else

This is really just an example of the gift cards Costco offers at a discounted price. You can get discounted restaurant, movie, and even sometimes Starbucks certificates. They often come in a pack of multiple, so you can split them up between recipients!

5)

RoC Retinol Correction Deep Wrinkle (day or night) Cream 2-Pack: $28.99

Compare To: $45.98 on the RoC website.

I was looking for a moisturizer that contained retinol that didn’t break the bank and I have found this stuff! I’ve loved it so far! The tubes may look small, but a little bit goes a long way! I also love that the day cream contains a high SPF (30) for ultimate protection. My mom and I usually go in on these together (she buys a day cream 2-pack and I buy a night cream 2-pack) and we just trade. It works well for us!

4)

Nailuv Gel Nail Polish 12-piece Kit: $29.99

Compare To: $125+ on the Nailuv website (for only a 9-piece kit!)

I haven’t actually used this myself, but was with a friend when she bought it. She’s very pleased that she bought it, but even more so that she found it at the price she did. Just the nail lamp retails at $70. I actually saw the exact kit on Gilt.com for over $100 (and that is supposed to be discounted already). What a great Christmas gift idea!

 

*Not all Costco’s carry this product, so I would suggest calling ahead.

3) Dr. Jessica Wu Ideal Radiance Serum (1.7 oz.): $39.99

Compare to:   $85 on website Beauty’s Most Wanted

Dr. Jessica Wu is a really well known dermatologist in Los Angeles and has a reputation of Hollywood’s go to girl for her celebrity clients. She has created her own skin care line and has been featured on pretty much any talk/morning show you can think of! I was with my friend when we spotted this at Costco and she freaked out because she has heard a lot about her. The serum is mean to aid collagen production, brighten skin tone, and reduce the appearance (as well as prevent) fine lines and wrinkles. I purchased it, and haven’t been using it long enough to give a real review, but I love the way it hydrates my skin when only using a pea-sized amount!

2)

RapidLash Eyelash & Eyebrow Enhancing Serum (2-pack): $57.99

Compare to: $99. 90 Rapidlash website

excuse-my-blog-Costco-Membership-8

I am a frequent user of Latisse (the prescription lash serum) and still have left, but as soon as I run out, I’m definitely going to try this stuff! Latisse can be very pricey (around $120) and it can be a pain always having to drop by dermatologist to pick it up. This has great reviews receiving 4.5 stars out of 5 with over 170 reviews on Costco’s website.

Jenna Hipp 12-piece Nail Polish Collection: $10.99

Compare To: $21.39 + shipping- Amazon

I haven’t purchased this set either, but what could be a better stocking stuffer for less than a dollar a bottle?!
