If you’re already a Costco card member, then you already know bulk toilet paper and trail mix aren’t the only things you can get at the wholesale retailer. Costco has it all—from health foods to puffer coats—and they even have La Mer. That’s right, Costco is pretty much a goldmine for prestige skin-care finds at a steep discount. While you may need a Costco membership to take advantage of all of the discounted buys (you can get one for only $60 a year), there are still loads of great skin-care deals to be scored, sans membership.
Have yourself a little scroll through Costco’s skin-care offerings, and you’ll find skin care products with derm-beloved ingredients like niacinamide and vitamin C, French pharmacy favorites, Korean beauty staples—all up to 50 percent off. You can even snag two products for the price of one in some cases, which is kind of like winning the skin-care lottery (and a great way to treat yourself while holiday shopping, if you ask me). So next time you want to do a little skin-care shopping and save some cash in the process, don’t sleep on Costco. We rounded up the best skin-care finds you can shop online right now.

Dermadoctor, Kakadu C 20% Vitamin C Serum, 2-Pack — $30.00

While you’d normally pay $98 for 1 oz. of the glow-boosting serum on the Dermadoctor website, you can get 2 half ounce bottles (which is essentially the same amount of product) from Costco for only $30. Know someone who’s also vitamin C curious? Go halfsies on the set to try it out for even more savings.

Thank You Farmer, Sun Project Water Sun Cream 2-Pack — $33.00
Originally $23, now $33 for 2
Using a genius combination of chemical and mineral blockers, the Sun Project Water Sun Cream does so much more than your average sunscreen. In addition to offering reliable SPF 50, the watery cream hydrates and soothes skin thanks to calming aloe vera, hollyhock root, and a patented anti-inflammatory ingredient called phyto-oligo. The moisturizing yet lightweight formula is one that every skin type would love, which is all the more reason to get one for a friend. While buying two tubes separately would cost you $46, you save $13 bucks when buying the budget-friendly 2-pack from Costco.
Bioderma, Hydrabio Serum Duo — $25.00
Originally $34, now $25 for 2
