I’m not sure if it’s a woman thing or a me thing, but I REALLY like shopping for beauty and skincare items. I do. But I really don’t like having to deal with that unique, overly-perfumey smell that many beauty stores have. You know that smell….you can smell it from 5 stores down, becoming stronger with each step. There’s one store in particular that I can only stay in for a few minutes before my head becomes all cloudy and I have to leave. That’s why I like shopping for beauty products online at stores like Apothica.com. You don’t have to deal with strong smells or crowds and 99% of the time can get it cheaper than in a store.
Apothica.com is an online beauty shoppers paradise (although they do have a retail store in downtown Salt Lake Cit if you want to check them out there.) They have tons of brands ranging from Clinique and Dermalogica to Laura Geller Makeup and Burt’s Bees. I literally spent over an hour going through the entire site looking at everything they had to offer.
I started off in the Bath & Body section, then slowly migrated over to Home & Laundry, then Candles. After lots of browsing, I finally settled on three products – all of which were on sale (yippee!). If we’re talking about a variety of products, how about Ahava Eucalyptus Mineral Bath Salts, 100% Pure Lip Gloss, and a JAPONESQUE Manicure Set (in pink, of course.) 🙂
Another great perk to shopping at Apothica.com is their loyalty points program. For every purchase, you get 5% back in rewards. You can then use your rewards towards purchasing eligible products on your next visit.
I’m happy to say that Apothica is one of our new blog sponsors, so you’ll be seeing a few more posts about them. I’ll be sure to keep you updated on my experience with Apothica and I hope you’ll keep me posted on yours as well. And to kick off our new sponsorship, Apothica has generously donate a $25 gift card for a giveaway! YAY!
