Buying Products from a Reputable Seller
Skincare is an investment. When there are other bills to pay, it may be tempting to save money by purchasing your products online from an unauthorized seller.
We’re not talking about purchasing products directly from the manufacturer, or a trusted website. We’re talking sites like Ebay.com and Amazon.com, where unauthorized sellers distribute products that may be diluted, expired or counterfeit.
Diluted, Expired, Counterfeit
When you purchase products online, it can be easy to purchase a skincare or makeup product that isn’t the real thing. Beauty products purchased online may be:
Diluted. Customer buying products like SkinMedica® online have compained that the packaging is right—but the product inside is not. It may consist of some of the original product or none at all—either way you cannot be sure about what you’re putting on your face.
Expired. Another thing people buying online is that makeup and skincare lines are expired. Expired makeup is at risk for bacteria and mold growth. The efficacy is also unknown.
Counterfeit. Sometimes products are just plain fake. Counterfeit cosmetics—MAC brands in particular—are often sold to dissatisfied customers.
When it comes to regular cosmetics, it’s best to buy from reputable stores. Or you can stop by AlluraDerm and see our glō minerals™ products. Our staff can help you match the best colors for your skin.
