Last week, my friend Juan shared one of the most exciting news I’ve had for a while, which I promptly shared on the MWS Facebook Page. It was one of those things that had me going – FINALLY!
We finally have ONE brand that’s launched its official online store! The one brand that’s at the forefront of technology would be Clinique.
I know what some of you are thinking – how is this exciting? Ah but then you have to realise that locally, I don’t know of any brands operating an official online store. We have third party online stores and some very dodgy online stores but no brand has yet set up an official one till now.
I have been browsing around the Clinique online store (www.clinique.com.my) and it looks pretty well stocked. You can find there everything that you could otherwise find at a regular Clinique counter, and there’s even free shipping and complimentary samples. Imagine. No more having to contend with pushy SAs 😛
For me, I’m terribly pleased. I have been planning to pick up the Chubby Stick Intense for the longest time but because I don’t go out to the malls a lot anymore, I have been putting it off. Now, I can get it delivered to me.
The other great thing is that if you don’t have a Clinique counter where you live, now you can buy what you need, or replenish your supplies at your convenience. I personally think this is a wonderful move forwards and I look forward to other brands following suit. It’s about time we were able to shop at the official website locally and get proper authentic products and be able to hold someone accountable if something goes wrong.
Good job, Clinique. Now, let me go order that Chubby Stick Intense….
Are you into shopping online?
I am! I’d love to see our online shopping stores expand and for brands to get into the game because really, it’s 2013, folks. Time to embrace technology. Not all of us have the time nor inclination to head down to the counter every time we need something replenished.
