Admit it or not, we all feel a little happy when we shop, and die a little bit when we can’t buy what we want. Sometimes, we give in to the temptation and buy what we want, but end up regretting it simply because we went out of budget.
And yes, we live in a world where you can do your shopping without leaving the comforts of your home. It’s not rocket science, but hey, it means something. Save on gas, parking, and time by rummaging online shops for all your needs. And oh, remember to check for free shipping!
Skin care is all in the rage right now because of the Korean wave—from koreanovelas to KPOP. Koreans are known to have smooth, flawless skin
and the whole world is quite in awe of their skin care routine (most credits go to Korean actors and singers who appear on TV). As a result, Korean products are very much in demand.
Good news is, you don’t have to travel all the way to Korea to shop for all the products they use! Althea Philippines, YesStyle, and W2Beauty are just some online shops that specialize in Korean skin care products. You can also find Korean cosmetics on Amazon and eBay. If you’re not sure about what type of products suit your skin type, pay a visit to your dermatologist before buying. Then, read reviews to find the best product for you.
We all need some makeup magic every now and then, but being a busy bee sometimes leave us with little to no time to indulge in the beauty haven that is a makeup store
. Luckily, online stores allow us to purchase much-needed items anytime and anywhere we have WiFi or data connection. (Reality bites, eh?) You can find good deals at online shops like Sephora, BeautyMNL, and Beauty Bay.
Online apparel shops have appeared in the Philippine market like wild mushrooms. And they’ve taken over social media sites like Facebook (FB) and Instagram (IG). The photos that fill their feeds are so inviting that their followers can’t seem to resist the urge to shop. There are a huge number of shops for this but we’ve sorted out some of the best ones for you.
Trendy Apparel If you are searching for something different, you can take a peek at the IG store of Carisse by Carmen Araneta (@shopcarisse). The owner gives a twist to traditional ‘70s style by mixing it with the style of the ‘90s. Copper (@shopcopper), on the other hand, features a grungier and casual style with a touch of feminine silhouette—pay its IG page a visit if that’s your kind of OOTD.
Swimsuit Sellers have invaded too many feeds on IG. But Instagramers condone, because their photos are quite irresistible. Beach bums especially appreciate the reminder that they could head out to the beach anytime they want. Sundae and Beyond the Beach PH have some really good one-piece bathing suits, while Holy Swim Ph provides quality crocheted bikinis.
Dresses A lot of stores specialize in this field but if you want to rock the beach-babe look, you can find some inspiration at Love, C Manila. If you want to have your own a one-of-a-kind dress, Sheiralyn might be the IG shop for you. Browse their feeds to see custom dresses and clothes they’ve made for celebrities like Kathryn Bernardo, Kim Chiu, Liza Soberano, and others.
