Fraud Alert: Don't Skimp When It Comes To Beauty

We all like to save a few bucks here and there, especially with the economy in a downward spiral, and beauty products can be expensive (particularly the good ones). However, a recent consumer alert put out by the National Retail Federation uncovered a frightening truth. Well-known beauty products are being targeted by organized crime rings who confiscate large amounts and re-sell at discounted prices through online auction houses. The problem with this process is that many products are not stored at correct temperatures or otherwise cared for properly, resulting in naive consumers receiving sub-quality goods and ultimately putting their health at risk. Although law enforcement is cracking down on these criminals, the NRF urges shoppers to only use legitimate sites to purchase products. And SheFinds strongly agrees. All of the above products are popular on the list of stolen and re-sold goods, but can be found on upstanding sites for great prices. So below is a SheFinds approved list of sites to check out for amazing beauty products at even more amazing prices:
