I know online beauty shopping might not be everyone’s cup of tea, since you can’t actually feel and try out the products. So what I like to do is to try everything in store first and then make the purchase online. Because there are always deals that you get to take advantage online only, and you have easy access to everything you need.
Plus, I just get so many satisfaction out of putting things I wish I can have into shopping bags but don’t actually check out. Get it? Like this post if you are the same (so many Youtubers use this tactic I must try and see if it works lol).
Highlight: B-glowing is really passionate about the brands they carry and truly loves beauty. How do I know? You can just feel it through their beautifully prepared informative (not just promotional) newsletter,s blog posts and editorials on their website. Because of that, not only I buy products from them, but also I make new beauty finds through their suggestions. Plus, the website is just so aesthetically pleasing to browse through. Highly recommended!
Deals & Offers: They have quite a lot promotions, sometimes it’s dollar off and sometimes it’s percentage off sitewide (this usually comes in the form of flash sales, so keep your eyes open to their newsletters). They also offer 30-day return on any non-sale items, which is essential for online beauty shopping.
Highlight:I came across the Detox Market while I was searching for a place that sells MV Organics products (its rose oil is the dream!). And as the site’s name suggest, it only carries organic natural beauty brands but almost every such brands out there.
Deals & Offers:The site offers a sample program that allows you to sample any 5 products for $9.99 (Genius!) Besides that, 10% off for new customers, a points program and regular sales.
Highlight: Space NK is a British cosmetic retailer but carries a wide range of brands all over the world. Still, I visit the site most often for products that I cannot get hold of elsewhere. Such as Aromatherapy Associates‘ bath oils that I cannot live without during the winter, Sarah Champman skincare products, and the complete range of By Terry products I am absolutely in love.
Deals & Offers: Gift with purchase for many brands and regular offers and sales through out the year. I once even got a Revive serum at half its original price from the site!
*For US shoppers, another great way to save money is to earn cash backs through Ebates, available for almost all mainstream online stores – up to 15% cash backs. I’ve earned about $1000 cash backs since last August, so you can imagine how much I’ve spent…
