Online shopping these days is a craze. I remember when I started online selling in 2011 and I am one of the few online sellers on Facebook. I even have a multiply website where it is easier for e-commerce. Until now, I have my online shop and reopening it early 2017.  I had more than 100 resellers and earning almost Php6,000 a day. I ship more than 50 parcels everyday. I get a lot of Viber/SMS inquiries and in all honesty, it's really hard to be an online seller. You get inquiries from different customers, some are calm and most are irate. And to tell you the truth, managing an online shop is really hard. But I wish I continued what I have started before. If I did, I am not sitting from 8-5 to do work for a company. Glamour Collection (my online shop) could have been my own company. But it takes a lot of money to get an online shop working. So I am still thinking if I will continue and what to sell. There's a lot of competitors all over the internet already, and the competition is hard.

But it has been a boom! Online shops makes it easier for shoppers to just sit back and relax while waiting for their orders to arrive right at their doorsteps. Imagine having to save time and energy when doing online shopping. Most online shops offer a hassle-free transaction, because that's how it should be. Online shopping should be worth it. There are a lot of online stores showcasing on cosmetic & skin care, but these stores can make you shop til you drop if you're into cosmetics. 

1 . Sephora

Sephora is a visionary beauty-retail concept founded in France by Dominique Mandonnaud in 1970. Sephora's unique, open-sell environment features an ever-increasing amount of classic and emerging brands across a broad range of product categories including skincare, makeup, fragrance, body and hair care, in addition to Sephora's own private label.

Of all the stores listed here, Sephora is the most expensive one. But! Worth the buy. They cater more than 50 high end brands of cosmetics like Zoeva, Sigma, Sleek, Pixi, 3CE, Burberry, and more.

2. BeautyMNL

Most of the products are readily available in the market but if you want a hassle-free shopping, Beauty MNL makes it easy for you. Choose from Drugstore brands to High-end brands that will best suit your needs

3. Althea Philippines

Althea is the national flower of Korea. It represents the beauty of Korea and delivers authentic K-beauty items to the world, just like how Althea gives off the fragrance of perfume. Althea innovates the cross border distribution channel to connect K-beauty suppliers directly with SEA consumers. Althea offers comprehensive K-beauty selections at the lowest price.

This is my favorite of all. I have mentioned on my  previous Althea blog posts how much I fell in love with this website. Aside from the attractive pink theme, they deliver authentic Korean products at a low price! No need to hunt to physical boutiques in the malls! You can do a one-stop K-beauty shopping here!

Beauty Bar is the first and only specialty personal care concept of its kind , where niche brands and products are presented as new alternatives to traditional cosmetics and body care ideas- from simple lip glosses to more intricate potions for beauty and relaxation.

You can find Beauty Bar stores in malls where they cater most products from Happy Skin Cosmetics, Smashbox, Burt's Bees, etc. I love shopping in Beauty Bar because it's like a mini department store of cosmetics.
