The SM Store Online Shop: Review

I have tried all the online shopping apps available here in the Philippines. Especially when I was still pregnant with Chuck because of the convenience that it brings me. Let’s admit it, the traffic situation alone here in the Philippines is like a nightmare!

Plus, I like online shopping because I get to see how much money I will spend before I even pay for it.

I was so excited when I found out that the Legendary retailer, The SM Store now offers online shopping! I have waited for this because I get most of my essentials from Watson’s. It’s very tempting to go to a Watson’s shop because you get to see a lot of items that will surely catch you eyes! You know, stuff that you don’t really need but are good for the skin, hair, etc. HAHA!

Not only that, we all know that SM has everything that we need! From baby essentials to cooking. You’re probably thinking about my first ever Shop SM haul.

But before we get to that exciting part, allow me to share my shopping experience. I didn’t use their app because I am running out of phone memory (don’t judge, I am a new mom so… expect countless photos and videos of my son stored on my phone).

Their website is okay – I didn’t experience any lag. Signing up is as easy as 1 2 3. Also, you can earn points on your SM Advantage card when you shop online. You just have to key in your card number (sadly, my SM advantage card is already expired :/ ).

They have 7 categories that you can explore: Women, Men, Kids, Home, Beauty, Sale and New. You know where to go when you want to buy your favorite moisturizer or maybe a new pair of shoes.

You can use your debit/credit card for payment or you may opt for cash. They have three delivery options that you can choose from: Ship to address, Pick-up at The SM Store and Cash-on-delivery.

Choose, whatever works for you!

So, back to my haul. Haha! Of course, I immediately checked the SM Health and Beauty for my skin care and I also got some stuff for Migs from SM Men’s.

I received an e-mail confirmation upon check-out. A day after, I received an SMS from 2Go too. They gave me a 2Go tracking number which unfortunately is not working. It maybe because of the Holidays why 2Go was not able to fulfill the expected day of delivery.

My package came in a small box and non of the items were damaged because each item were carefully packed by SM – but I do hope they find an alternative instead of using bubble wraps.

All in all, the experience was good except for the delivery part which is not SM’s fault. Will I consider shopping again? Absolutely!

Today is the best time to shop because there is an ongoing Big Clearance Sale (Up to 50% off on Selected items)! Check out this link for more information.

Happy Shopping!

Why I chose Dearberry

Hi, ladies!

I am not a fan of makeup as I haven’t tried one that doesn’t make my skin oily or feel heavy. Most of the makeup that I have are branded and were given to me as gifts or “pasalubong” from relatives who live outside the Philippines. I am the type who’s contented in using sunblock and lip gloss everyday. I don’t even follow a certain skin care routine because I am just too lazy to apply stuff on my face and body.

But as I age, I feel my skin screaming for moisturizer and I envy women who doesn’t need the help of a professional make-up artist when attending events. Before I finally committed to be the Marketing Manager of Dearberry Philippines, I tried the products first to see if it suits my skin type. Because if the products are too heavy for my skin, I’ll end up not using them again and there is no sense in selling a brand that I personally do not believe in.

Who is Dearberry Philippines and what convinced me to use their products?

Mar.1956 JULIA Co Ltd, the parent company of FINE Bio Inc was founded JULIA, the parent company of FINE Bio, was founded in 1956 by Jung Family just 3 years after the Korean War. The Jung’s started their business from a tiny shop in Seoul with three products and one big dream. The dream ws to make better cosmetic products in quality with affordable price for Korean people who had to start everything from nothing after the war.
This philosophy has been kept strongly for the past 58 years and melted in dearberry as historical company heritage

DEARBERRY products are manufactured by such top-tier factories like COSMAX and WINNOVA to achieve the high quality standards of our products. COSMAX is the main & most important manufacturer of L’OREAL group and other world famous branded cosmetics. WINNOVA is the main & most important manufacturer of Korean branded cosmetics like TONYMOLY & THEFACESHOP.

The brand essence of dearberry is “affordable high quality cosmetics made with ingredients from nature ”. dearberry believes the simple truth, “healthy skin is most beautiful” and sticks to the basics, “firstly keep skin healthy, then optimally solve target issues”.

Dearberry products are specifically made for the Asian skin and they do not test their products on animals! I have pets at home so, I am 100% against brands who still do animal testing. When I learned these facts, I immediately sat down on my desk, opened my laptop and researched on different ways of how to effectively promote Dearberry to its target markets. I even convinced some relatives and friends to ditch their current brands for Dearberry.

 

Here are my Top 5 Dearberry Makeup favorites

  1. Magic Oil Control Primer; Php480

If you’re like me who can go to parties without bringing a “kikay” kit for retouch, then this product suits you. It’s the perfect primer for the “tamad” girl like myself. Magic Oil control primer gets rid of oil and dirt and rejuvenates your skin too! Be oil free for 4 hours with just a dab of Magic Oil control primer.

2. Photo Sharp Concealer; Php260

Magic touch to perfectly cover spots, blemish and freckles of your skin very naturally. Photo sharp comes in 2 shades, beige and light beige. This is super convenient to use and blends well to my skin tone. Perfect to hide eye bags!

3. Long Lashmellow Mascara; Php480

One and only mascara with 3 satisfying results: immediate volume, vivid color and longer lashes.
· Light-weighted setting but NO drooping or crumpling.
· No smudging all day long with triple fitting firm.
Long Lashmellow Mascara gives you the feel that your eyelashes grow longer and even longer.

4. Suri Suri Aguamenti Powder; Php 632

It makes my skin tone brighter and clearer with a natural & youthful look plus it protects my skin from the harmful effects of the sun (It contais sunscreen (SPF25/PA++)

5. Kiss Of Berry Lip Tint Balm; Php200

No other brand adds color and exfoliates my lips like Kiss of berry! You have 6 flavors to choose from! I use Blueberry.

Dearberry Skin care products are also worth every peso. I will definitely share more with you on my next article. Meanwhile, here’s a before and after party photo of me last December 28, 2016 when I attended the Filipino Bloggers Network Year end party. I wore these products on my face from 5:00PM to 8:30 with zero touch ups except for the lip tint after I ate dinner.

PS: My husband use Magic Oil Control primer too!
