WWW: Shopping with Ezbuy

I have known about Ezbuy for a long time now, but it was only late last year when I started doing a lot of my online shopping on this platform. And I have been very, very happy. ٩(^‿^)۶ Hahaha. There are many things we want that can be bought for a lot cheaper on Taobao but it isn't exactly an easy task navigating the website because it's all in Mandarin (Sorry 老师!). While I can still search for the things I want (Thank goodness!) and get a brief idea of what the reviews are saying, going through the buying process would be a whole different (horror) story.

Enter Ezbuy, or otherwise known as hassle-free Taobao shopping. \(^-^)/ All you need to do is to add your items to your Ezbuy cart, check out, and Ezbuy will do the rest for you. Yes, including communicating with the Taobao sellers in Mandarin. How awesome is that! And it doesn't just end here. This service provided by Ezbuy comes with inspection to ensure that your items are correctly bought and not defective, and aftersales support.

For those who are concerned about hidden shipping fees, well, fret not! All costs, including shipping fees, are reflected on the Ezbuy checkout page. So you get to decide if you're comfortable with the shipping fees before purchasing. Absolutely no unwanted surprises when your items arrive! :D

Here's a quick tutorial on how to shop on Ezbuy:

See the orange search box at the top right-hand corner? You can search for a particular category of items or just copy off the link from Taobao! Alternatively, check out Ezbuy's specially curated menu of the latest trends.

Psst, Ezbuy just launched their own Korea Marketplace! Get all your K-beauty needs there!

Here's a tip: If you need more info about you item options, just place your cursor on top of the images. A little text box will appear!

Right at the bottom bar is where you will see the total shipping fees for all the items you have selected.

When your items have arrived, Ezbuy has 4 different ways to get them to you; neighbourhood collection, MRT collection, warehouse collection and home delivery. It is so convenient!

Once you have placed your order, you can check the status of it under 'My Account > My Order'.

Just for the month of April, all Ezbuy shoppers will enjoy all these value-added services. Do also check out Ezbuy Prime service where you can enjoy unlimited shipping at only $2.99. Also, just for you, dear readers, sign up for an account now and get a complimentary SGD10 shopping voucher by using this link No minimum spending is required to redeem it. :D

Alrighty, I hope this post has been useful for you. ◡̈ Stay tuned for the next one where I'll show you my recent loot!

REVIEW: Bepanthen Ointment

I spend half my life searching for steriod-free eczema remedies because my skin always acts up when I'm stressed. And I'm really stressed now. ಥ_ಥ I seriously cannot wait for the June holidays to roll in but anyways...

Last month, my inner cheeks got really irritated. They were red and flaky, and my usual arsenal of creams just wasn't working. So I turned to my favourite-st people on Earth for help, i.e. Redditors (I love you.) and found Bepanthen Oinment. This is actually a cream meant for nappy rash but it healed some Redditors' eczema so I thought I give it a shot. I mean, if it's gentle enough for a baby's butt, then it prolly can't wreck that much damage to my already damaged skin right? If it doesn't work. Lol, such negativity! #fromapersonwhohasnthadgoodskininthelongesttime

Made in Germany, this off-white cream has quite a clinical smell but it isn't strong. It looks milky soft in the photo but it's actually quick thick and sticky. After putting on my moisturiser, I put two little dots of this cream on my inner cheeks and tap it in. It leaves behind a slightly sticky balm-like texture which doesn't go away, so if the fan were to blow your hair into your face.. Hmm, it's like wearing sticky lip gloss. Haha. It can get pretty annoying. Heh. So I usually do this right before bed and dab just a little in the morning.

The morning after I first used it, I noticed a visible difference. My inner cheeks were a lot less red and looked a whole lot happier. And it just got better and better. Of course, this is no miracle product. My redness remains (Lack of sleep. ಠ_ಠ) but it's a lot less and my skin doesn't itch and flake anymore, which is really rare for me. So yay, big hearts to Bepanthen and of course, Redditors. ♥

Bepanthen Ointment is priced at SGD8.90 at Guardian.
