Buying skincare on ebay?

i LOVE my dermalogica moisturizer, however it is approx. $70 regular price and i just don't feel like spending that much on a moisturizer (originally got it for 40% off), no matter how amazing it may be. i found a seller on ebay with very positive feedback who is selling it for around $45. i've never bought skincare off of ebay and i'm a little afraid in case it's not what it says it is and i end up melting my face off or something. :p has anyone ever bought such a thing off of ebay? how do i know if it's legit?

Feedback is your indicator that they're legit. If their feedback is 5000+ and 98% or higher, it's highly doubtful that you're going to get scammed. If it's less than 100 and 100%, I would still exercise caution despite it being all positive. I've bought skincare through e-bay and had nothing but good experiences. Would I try something new from there? Nope, but if I find something I actually use and it's a really good price, damn straight I'm going to take a closer look.

Hope this helps. :)

i've never bought anything off ebay, but i would be comfortable buying a skin care product that i'm familiar with. if the packaging looks legit when you receive it, and the container is still sealed, then you probably won't burn your face off. : )
