Trade Secrets (Sponsored)

Score 50% off with THEFACESHOP's beauty trade-in program


Don't take this the wrong way, but you are paying way, way too much for skincare. Taking care of your skin is a beauty must, we get it. But forking over $260 for a tiny jar of night cream? Must you?

Newsflash! Thanks to modern technology, you've got way more affordable alternatives out there. By "there," we mean THEFACESHOP, and by "way more affordable," we mean 50 percent off, thanks to the Korea-based beauty retailer's new trade-in program.

Here's how it works: Bring in a used skincare product of your choice (drugstore brands excluded), even if the bottles are completely empty, and THEFACESHOP will offer you an equivalent product for a whopping 50 percent off. Below are a few examples:


If you like Clinique Acne Solutions Clear Skin System, try THEFACESHOP Clean Face Blemish Zero, a foaming cleanser, clarifying toner and clinic solution kit with natural alpha and beta hydroxy acids. $16 Trade-in price: $8.


If you like Shiseido Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Night Cream, try THEFACESHOP The Smim Skin Density 101.0 Repair Cream, a lifting cream infused with sake extract, shea butter and skin-plumping ceramides. $44 Trade-in price: $22.


If you like Lancome Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Eye cream, try THEFACESHOP Flebote Collagenic XP Total Lifting Eye Cream, a rich, collagen-filled eye cream that fills wrinkles and prevents the skin's natural breakdown of collagen. $39 Trade-in price: $19.50.

THEFACESHOP's beauty trade-in program runs through October 31. Visit three stores on Oahu: Ward Warehouse, McCully Shopping Center and Waimalu Plaza. For more information, visit THEFACESHOP's international website or the following Hawaii-based social media pages: Facebook | Twitter | Instagram.
