My Favourite Online Beauty Stores

My Favourite Online Beauty Stores

Yesterday I blogged about buying cosmetics on eBay, and while I don’t buy them on eBay, there are plenty of online beauty stores out there I love and happily purchase from. When it comes to cosmetics and things that we apply on our skin, particularly near our eyes and mouth, it’s vital that we go for genuine, good-quality products. Trying to save a few bucks on counterfeit cosmetics may jeopardise your health. I’m not saying that all cosmetics sold on eBay are bad. Caveat emptor and all that. :)

These are the online stores I’ve shopped with over the years and the ones I’d recommend to you. These websites have a good amount of stocked brands and their shipping rates are reasonable. So far, I’ve not had any issues shopping on these websites but with all activities online that requires a credit card and personal information, it’s still important we exercise caution regardless of how popular they are.

Would You Buy Cosmetics From eBay?

Would You Buy Cosmetics From eBay?

I love eBay. I love it so much that I have a tab on eBay permanently opened in my browser on the computer and the iPad. I discovered eBay when I was in uni and became a member in 2001. The idea that I could finally find and purchase books to complete my existing collections was absolutely astounding. I brought kilos of books back to Malaysia because of eBay!

Since then, I’ve purchased many more items. I’ve bought mobile phones, earphones, computer-related things, new gadgets, mobile device covers and heaps more. I’ve even sold a few items of my own. Needless to say, I’m really thankful for eBay because it means that I can buy certain things very cheaply, even via Australian stores.

This got me thinking though, with so much stuff going on on eBay that you could have access to, would you buy cosmetics from eBay?

Bloggie Wednesday: My Two Favourite Places To Get Blogging (And Non-Blogging) Freebies

Bloggie Wednesday: My Two Favourite Places To Get Blogging (And Non-Blogging) Freebies

© Wonderlass

A show of hands … who loves freebies? Actually, I should be asking, who DOESN’T love a freebie? Haha yep, I thought so. Everyone loves a good freebie! 😛

I’m constantly on the search for beautiful designs for my web development work and for my blog. The problem is, most of the time, these designs aren’t free. As much as I’d like to support artists and graphic designer’s works, I don’t have unlimited financial resources to buy them all. This means that I need to resort to free images and designs whenever possible.

Today I thought I’d share my two favourite places to get blogging and non-blogging freebies. If you’re looking for free images, designs, blog themes, printables and much more, you don’t have to look very far. These two websites are my go-to for all these and more.

Paula’s Choice RESIST 1% Retinol Booster: Is It Possible Like And Dislike It At The Same Time?

Paula's Choice Resist 1% Retinol Booster

The discovery of retinol has changed my skin. I’m not talking about the strong prescription-only stuff as I don’t think I need those; it’s the over-the-counter stuff that has made a vast difference on my skin. To think I took so long to finally give retinol a go. I actually thought it was going to burn my skin off!

I’ve used several retinol products over the course of 2 years and found that the higher the concentration of retinol in the product, the better my skin turns out. I’ve only used one 1% retinol prior to this but as I had to have it shipped over from the US, I thought I’d give the Paula’s Choice one a go instead, which I can get from the Australian online store. The RESIST 1% Retinol Booster also, as its name goes, contains 1% retinol. That percentage has proven good results on my skin and I expected the same of Paula’s Choice’s as well.

Alas, it’s not really my cup of tea. At least, not physically.
