7 Online Shopping Tips to Avoid Counterfeit Goods

IMG_4737

Nowadays we opt to avail for products and services in the most convenient ways possible. I mean why bother going out looking for bags, wallets and other stuff (especially if the brand is not available in the country), if you could just browse Instagram shops in the comfort of your own home. With just a tap of a finger, you can select that product you like, pay via on-line bank transfer, credit card or through your nearest remittance center and then just wait until your package come to your doorstep.

I myself is an online shopper for years now. Though most of my transactions were fast and legit, I also experienced being wronged twice. So based from my own experiences, here are my tips that I hope would prevent you for purchasing  fake items.

1. Do not Trust Easily.

Well established online shops is not a guarantee that you will not be able to avail fake items.

I purchased a fake power bank from a well known online shop before. Given that it has credibility and clearly stands for the authenticity of its products, I gave my full trust. Luckily, they are kind enough to immediately entertain my concern and return my money back. They put the blame on the vendor where the item came from. Though I think that it wasn’t a valid excuse, I’m still glad that they were very attentive and sorry for the inconvenience they have caused me.

Toning is part of a skin care regimen done after cleansing the face. Ladies, no matter how thorough we wash our face still not all of the dirt are being taken away. So, Hooray for Toners!

Facial toners act as the “second wave” of the cleansing process because it ensures to remove the  deep seated dirt and grimes from the face. Toners also helps in shrinking large pores and balancing the skin’s PH level which is being disturbed by soaps or other facial cleansers.  Moreover, skin feels refreshed after applying a toner.

Personally, I am very fond of using the Premium Lettuce & Cucumber Watery Toner from Skinfood. I featured it on my Evening Skin Care Routine blog, just click on these ❥ ❥ ❥ in case you have not read it yet.

Packaging

For me, the packaging is very unique that is why I became interested about it in the first place. The container is made of hard plastic but you can totally squeeze it to make the product dispense quickly. Sanitation wise, the hole where the product comes out was sealed the first time I opened it. The cap really secured the product well.
