Finding the Best of Beauty on eBay

eBay beauty finds. 
I'll never forget my first eBay bid; well over 10 years ago, I used the "Buy it Now" feature to purchase some vintage Cartier jewelry and I was hooked (both on Cartier and eBay!). Now, it's easier than ever to navigate eBay and, while it's marvelous for getting deals on fashion and hard-to-find items, it's also a brilliant place to replenish one's skincare and beauty essentials

Today, I am sharing my top eBay picks in this category...from a high-tech hairdryer to a limited-edition holiday lipstick, the options in this vertical are endless. 

Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of the products in action as well as the Bottom Line...


Propelled by the fact that 81% of all merchandise sold on eBay is new and available with the "Buy It Now" feature and 69% of items sold on eBay ship for free, I love searching for deals on products I would normally purchase at full price...it's like winning an auction without even having to bid!

Hair care and skin care. 
// HAIR CARE + SKIN CARE //
  • Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer (addition options HERE): Now officially cult-status, this innovative piece of technology dries hair with minimum heat and maximum efficacy. Be forewarned, however...it ruins you for all other hair dryers! 
  • Oribe Run-Through Detangler (additional options HERE): I cannot begin to write enough good things about this detangling formula; for those who struggle with tangles, it's simply transformational. Just a few sprays directly following the washing of my hair and my mane is completely tamed...a brush or comb glides through even the worst snarls with ease and my hair is left glossy and soft rather than weighed down. I never want to be without this going forward...my only question is, what took me so long to try it?!
  • Mason Pearson Junior Hairbrush (additional options HERE): Forever in my handbag, this luxurious boar bristle gem is small enough to be portable while large enough to brush through an entire head of long and thick hair. 
  • Sisley-Paris Eye Contour Mask (additional options HERE): Expert at relieving puffy and fatigued eyes, this mask can also be used as an eye treatment gel...utilitarian and effective. 
  • Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Essence (additional options HERE): A perfect companion for my work bag, this mid-day refresher is full of botanical essences to enliven the complexion in a single spritz.
  • SK-II Overnight Miracle Mask (additional options HERE): When skin needs extra reinforcements, this mask delivers results while sleeping. Simply apply an entire capsule of the pre-portioned formal all over the face and slumber. The next morning skin appears hydrated, nourished, bouncy and fresh...it's truly a miracle worker.

Smiling because the Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer cuts my drying time down by at least a third.

Bottom Line: I hope you enjoyed this guide to some of my favorite eBay beauty options and would love to know what caught your eye and while being equally interested in hearing what your first purchase was on eBay...do tell! 

Good things ahead including a new beauty tutorial and a host of fresh product procurements...xx and more soon,

  2. The hoops look like they are not through a traditional earlobe pierce. How do they fit?
