Mini Luxola Haul & Shopping Experience
Thursday, April 24, 2014 • 42 comments
. . . aaaaaand finally, after 12 days, my much awaited orders from Luxola has finally arrived. To those who don't know, Luxola is a singapore based shopping site that carries a mix of high-end and drugstore makeup, nails, tools and skincare brands that are usually not available in Asia. To be honest, I really am not sure why it took so long for my orders to arrive. I mean, as far as I am concerned — delivery from Singapore to Manila, Philippines only take 3 days but as you can see mine took almost a couple of weeks! I'm not sure but I suppose the reason why is because I ordered these items on a Friday (April 11) and if I'm not mistaken Luxola don't ship on weekends. Then come Holy Week so I suppose (again!) that Aramex, which is their shipping partner does not operate on Holidays. However, despite the super delayed arrival or my orders, I can still say that this Luxola package is so worth the wait.
Worth the wait because of two reasons, first is because shipping is free as long as your order amounted $40 or more after discounts/credits and second, Luxola was having a 30%(?) off sale on all orders when I purchased these items. I ordered a total of six items (they also included a free nail polish in the package!) and because of their sale, I saved a whopping ₱ 1,578.50 which is approximately $37.00 USD. How cool is that? Overall, despite the very long delay of my order's arrival I am still, in a way very pleased with my very first Luxola shopping experience and I will for sure, place an order from them again soon because of the amazing brands they carry that are mostly not available here in the Philippines.
Anyway, have you guys already tried ordering at Luxola? If so, how was your shopping experience?
