Shopping for Perfume, Make-up and Cosmetics Online
Buying fragrances and cosmetics online is now easier than ever. In fact, it can be the answer to all you beauty needs! To help you buy online with confidence, Fresh Fragrances and Cosmetics has put together the following guide.Know your product
It is easy to order your favourite shade of foundation or lip-gloss if you have previously used it - you know the product, the colour and the quality. But you should always try before you buy, particularly where different colours and shades are involved. A little research will ensure you get the product you want. Read up on the item you are interested in, find out what the active ingredients are (to avoid any allergic reactions), check to see if the site you are purchasing from has a beauty advisor who may be able to rate the product for you. I would always recommend testing, but, remember, when it comes to skincare, you often have to use the product for a certain period of time before seeing its full potential.
All your favourite beauty products are available on-line at unbelievable prices. If you do not feel 100% confident in using a particular e-tailer, or you are doubtful of the products authenticity, search the site for a customer feedback area. Alternatively, if it is a local company, simply give them a call.Know your numbers, shades and colours
A shade or number in your favourite Chanel foundation will not necessarily be the same in the Lancome line. So if you want to try something new, it just requires a little resourcefulness! Good sites have great visuals of all products so compare colours. The more reliable sites have contact details so you can email a question or ring someone for advice. Can you return?
Before buying, familiarise yourself with the site's return and refund policy, only buy from e-tailers, like Fresh, that guarantee a full money back refund.Privacy and Security
Deal with sites that ensure your information is fully protected. Secure Server Software, for instance, will fully encrypt and protect your personal data, such as your name, address and credit card number, ensuring that it cannot be read by anyone on the Internet.
Familiarise yourself with the site's delivery policies, prices and delivery time. You will find some great sites, such as www.fragrancesandcosmetics.com.au
, which will deliver anywhere in the world free of charge. Ensure that your order will be sent via registered post, so you will have to sign for it. This prevents others from receiving it. If your order is taking longer than anticipated, check with your local post office first. Orders can sometimes be misplaced or forgotten. Chances are, that if you have not received your order it may be sitting at your local post office. If your order is still missing, contact the company from which you purchased the product, have them locate the whereabouts of your parcel and provide you with all dispatch information. For your own peace of mind, when it comes to online shopping, deal with a local company. Having a local address and phone number will certainly make it a much more enjoyable shopping experience. If you are sceptical about purchasing online, give the company a call, speak to an operator and have them address any concerns you may have.Fresh Fragrances and Cosmetics (www.fragrancesandcosmetics.com.au) is a local Melbourne based company bursting with bargains and great customer service!
