Where can I buy cosmetic brands like Clinique and Lancôme?

On the websites for Globus and Manor a single product from either brand runs around 50 CHF! Are there any other shops or websites that do low or free shipping to Switzerland that offer the products at a lower/ more reasonable price?

The Swiss Mueller does not seem to carry either brand.

Stock up next time you are on holiday! Or you can switch to a cheaper brand: Coop has quite a good range of cheaper make up brands.

Drive/train to Germany. The equivalent of chf 300 is tax free. Or Italy, France...what ever’s closest.

Mueller should have Clinique though. But it’s overpriced. Kiko Milano (in train stations, the Glattzentrum) is good quality and very reasonable.

Beletje, to be quite frank - you're in Switzerland now. You can get most products almost anywhere. If you don't like the prices that you see then search the internet for current special discounts.

My personal experience is that there may be another range of choice in other countries, but the prices remain pretty constant, whether CHF or other.

I'm sure I've seen Clinique in Mueller at least a few times, but it was a limited selection for a short sale. The discount wasn't great, but if it's that or go to Germany then I'll save my time.

The Amavita pharmacy also sometimes has Clinique.

Note that neither brand mentioned by OP is particularly cheap. My dermatologist said unless you have specific allergies, excema or other skin conditions, Nivea is a good product at a fair price. If you have a higher budget then of course you can splurge on the name brands.

Hi!
You can go to Germany and draw up TaxFree (I recommend GlobalBlue provider). It allows you to buy not only Clinique and Lancôme but also other brands cheaper and than receive part of your money back.

I do not recommend Global blue!! Just get an Ausfuhrbescheinigung, have it stamped and get your money back. Global blue takes 25% as fee I think
