My Shopping Experience with Lazada
I have a confession.. I love to shop (who doesn’t?), not so much window shopping though because I’m lazy and fickle when I shop in person. However, I enjoy what I like to call “finger shopping” aka online shopping where I get to browse hundreds of items in a short space of time, read reviews and then make a decision. What’s even better is, online stores usually entice customers with discounts, so that’s awesome ya?
I was recently introduced to this website Lazada.sg which is like a MEGASTORE that has almost everything – household items, electronics, computers, gadgets, beauty and health and even kitchenwares. Think Takashimaya x Giant x Mustafa, except that it’s online. I found the website to be very user-friendly, they even organised various categories by “floors”, much like a departmental store.
No surprise here but I spent most of my time on the “4th floor”. The range of skincare, makeup and beauty tools were impressive. There were brands that are not sold here in Singapore like Anastasia Beverly Hills, Chantecaille, Dolce Gabanna Makeup, Ellis Faas just to name a few. I also found that the prices of luxury skincare SKII to be very attractive – comparable or cheaper than what you get at the airport Duty Free.
To help you accelerate your shopping, I have selected the Top 10 items that you should check out.
Top Skincare Picks
As you can see, most of the items selected are discounted. The prices of the SKII items are really good, especially that jumbo bottle of the SKII Facial Treatment Essence at just $168!! I got the same one at the airport at $250 🙁
I was intrigued by the IlluMask Anti-Aging Light Therapy Mask for a while now and almost ordered from Qoo10 last week! Thank goodness I didn’t because this is even cheaper at Lazada 🙂
Top Makeup Picks
Both items were selected because they are not available in Singapore. Ellis Faas Skin Veil Foundation is one of my favourite foundations of all times. The colour selection at Lazada was kind of limited, but if you are Mac NC35 and above, you will find a shade for yourself. As a reference, I use shade S104.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade needs no introduction. I haven’t personally tried this but I know I definitely will, one day…
Top Beauty Tools Picks
Babyliss Pro Miracurl – I have reviewed this before and I really loved how easy it was to achieve lovely loose waves. Click here to watch my review. I am currently using an old curling tong for my waist length hair because I found it to be the most efficient to achieve loose waves in 5 minutes. Hermippe Wrinkle Care Ion Massager is awesome! I have used this for a while now and I remembered paying about $50+ for it. (I have a review on this, I just have to find it.. eeks)
I picked up the Illumask and the SKII Stempower Rich Cream. The whole check out process was easy, as with most online shopping.
Orders were placed on the 19 Jan. I received them on the 21st and 23rd Jan. Yes, they came in 2 packages because both items were provided by different vendors. I was very impressed because the estimated shipping was 3-5 working days. And oh, shipping was free too!
All in all, I would say it was a very pleasant shopping experience and I would highly recommend you check it out.
Lazada will be having a Chinese New Year Sale on 27 Jan. Mark your calendars, don’t miss out on it! I would recommend you start checking out Lazada.sg to shortlist your shopping so that you can zoom right into the items when the sale starts 🙂
Hope this was helpful for you. Happy Shopping!
