Happy new year! I am going to end 2016 with me being sick and emotional but I still want to spread happiness so I am sharing with you my BeautyMNL experience! I was asked to give their website a test run, and although it was not my first time shopping from BeautyMNL, I still discovered a lot of nice things that I want to share with you.
I did not experience any problems during the time I was shopping. Everything went fast and smooth.
This is going to be quite a long post because I think it is better to explain everything with visuals.
Creating an account is very easy as long as you have a valid email address You will have an area to check your account settings as well as track your orders and credits.
I love researching first before buying online because it gives me the assurance that I will get my money’s worth. Good thing they have this section called Bloom, where news about makeup and skincare products that they also sell are being posted. They update this page daily which is a plus! You can also find tips and tricks in skincare and makeup application.
Reviews‘ tab is very useful if you want to know if the products worked for the previous buyers. The contents of this page is categorized according to most recent reviews, top reviews, best rated, most waitlisted and best bargains.
Buying gifts can now be done at the comfort of your home as well. They have this Gifts section where they place curated items that falls into specific themes like the ones you can see on the photo above. I saw some sets and I think buying a set will save you a small amount of money than buying them individually plus the items are already placed inside a cute box. No need to worry about gift wrapping. These are ready to be given away!
Be sure to check out Promos page because there you will find what items are on sale and other freebies they offer.
Now, onto my favorite part which is their Shop! I like that they categorized everything according to use and also by brands. Adding items on to the cart is very easy.
When you click an item, you will see its description, ingredients, how to use and whatnot. When an item is on sale, you will automatically see the discount rate.
Below each item, you can also see reviews for that particular product from certified buyers. What I like the most is every review shows the person’s skin type, skin tone, facial features and age. In this way, we can gauge if the product will also work or not work for us.
Another thing to like about BeautyMNL is they have local and international brands and well as organic ones.
Shipping within Metro Manila is usually next day delivery and 5-7 days for provincial areas. They don’t ship items during weekends and holidays. For orders of Php1500 and above, shipping is free (sometimes they have promos where they offer free shipping for 1000 peso worth of items). In case you weren’t able to reach that amount, you will have to pay for the shipping fee Php50 for Metro Manila and Php150 for provincial areas).
You may pay your orders via Paypal, credit card, bank deposit, online banking and COD (only available for Metro Manila orders with amount not exceeding Php5000).
So here’s my mini haul. My orders came inside a zip-lock pouch with gold foil inside. One side has the BeautyMNL logo and website url while on the other side says, “Finally, a beauty destination for you.”. The presentation is really classy and this can actually pass as a gift already. The packaging is fancy enough for the holidays!
Here’s the list of what I purchased:
I didn’t get a lot of items but I am really happy that most of the items I got are on sale. Excited to try these and share with you the results.
BeautyMNL also has a monthly contest called #selfieMNL contest. Do you like taking selfies? Now is your chance to show your pretty face and get a chance to win a Printster polaroid of your pretty face and a PHP200 BeautyMNL GC. Click here for the complete details.
