Beauty MNL, first haul [Review by a Filipina]

by - February 04, 2017

Beauty MNL had been my second go-to website for skincare products this year. I think I was searching for an eye cream, in particular, either Mizon Snail Repair Eye Cream or COSRX Honey Ceramide Eye Cream, that made me look into this site. Though they didn’t have the Mizon 25ml tub and had the 15ml tube sold out, I was relieved to see that they had the COSRX eye cream available.

Their free shipping pop-up box was quite persistent, but having the eye cream priced at P1,100 (it’s now P1,170), it was not such a bad idea to add some products to meet the P1,500 free shipping holiday promo. And I must say, their marketing tactics really worked on me because they also had a Tokyo raffle promo where you would get an entry for a minimum spend of P1,990. I grew up watching anime, batang 90s kasi, and had developed a liking to the Japanese culture, so yes, I gave in to the Tokyo promo.

Here’s a look at what I got for my first try with them:

1. COSRX Honey Ceramide Eye Cream P1,100 (Now P1,170)

2. COSRX Acne Pimple Master Patch P170 (Now P180)

So here’s some good points:
  1. Good website design and smooth transaction
  2. Carries a large variety of brands (Korean, Japanese, US, local PH, etc.)
  3. Fast transaction. I always get my items after a day of placing my order. Even if I place my order late at night, I would receive my package the next day.
  4. Offers promos
  5. You can earn credits by making a review.
  6. Gives tips & tricks through Bloom Magazine
  7. Delivery is right at your doorstep.

Not so happy points:
  1. Price for some products suddenly shoots up.
  2. Sold out items take time to be replenished.
  3. Free shipping needs to be for a minimum of P2,000.
  4. The variety of products carried for each brand is limited.

I had received a number of Etsy orders last December, so I could do some splurging this month—enjoying the fruits of my labor. Teehee. :)
