As a mum sometimes we feel guilty spending money on ourselves, so I was a little excited to find out about a new online store claiming to save us up to 88% off leading brand health and beauty products.
Online I went and started browsing. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing leading brands that normally retail for $32.95 selling online for $5.99. I know you are probably asking the same questions as me 1. Is this actually real branded product? 2. How can they afford to do this? 3. What’s the catch?
Well the good news is there is no catch. Yes it is the genuine product. And they can afford to do it as they do not have the expense of having a retail store, have negotiated to obtain a lot of end of season lines (ie. summer ending in the US/Europe but starting here with colours right on trend), and keeping the packing of goods simple.
I did actually purchase these products online (shown in photo left), the website is easy to navigate and the process was very simple. What I love was no matter how much I bought was the knowledge it was going to be a flat shipping rate of $6.50 Australia wide. With a few clicks my product was on its way and 24 hours later it was at my front door. Now fancy packaging it was not, plain brown box, goods in a plastic bag tied up, but hey when you see how much I saved I think I can survive without the tissue paper and pretty boxes (although I do love that)
So what did I save? Had I bought this in store at recommended retail prices it would have cost me $149.50, the eight products cost me $52.92 including delivery. That’s a $96.58 saving. Am I happy? Definitely. Will I be giving up my in store shopping? Well no. This site is great and I will definitely be going back. I love it to pick up my favourites at such an affordable price but more so it makes trying a new colour, new product so easy and affordable, but like me I am sure you have your go to products, they ones you just can’t live without which for now remain in the department store.
