{REVIEW} Online Shopping with RetailBox.co.za

May 6, 2014

Looking for an online store with an abundance of salon-quality hair products? RetailBox might be the online store you’re looking for. You can find all your favourites in one place and save yourself a trip to the salon. In case you haven’t heard, Retail Box is an online e-commerce store that pretty much stocks all the popular professional hair care brands. Moroccanoil, Kérastase, Schwarzkopf and ghd, just to name a few. I was recently sent a voucher to spend on the site and basically fulfill every beauty bloggers dream.

So besides all the hair goodies they also have a selection of hair tools, Xen Tan products, Morgan Taylor nail polishes as well as various hair accessories. Orders are fast and efficient and arrive within 1-5 days. Orders over R500 are free, and shipping for orders under R500 are charged at R69 per shipment. But It’s certainly not a hard task to fill your shopping cart to the value of R500. You are absolutely spoiled for choice on RetailBox. I felt like a kid in a candy store when I was ‘invited’ to shop on the site. After a bit of browsing and oohing and aahing I finally settled on the ghd Natural Bristle Radial Brush Size 3 (R266), the Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray (R290) and the magnificent New York State of Mind nail polish from Morgan Taylor (R115).

RetailBox always have phenomenal sales and to give you an idea, a few months ago they had the Kérastase Elixir Ultime hair oils marked down from R445 to only R99. Hot Dayum! I’m a sucker for a good sale, so when I spotted the ghd 45mm brush marked down to R99 I jumped all over that and clicked ‘add to cart’ quicker than you can say whoop whoop. My old styling brush was quite dismal so this was a much needed purchase, while the other two items were more in the wishlist category.

I was super impressed with the fast delivery, the included samples, the no fuss EFT payment system (I went a teeny bit over my voucher value to fully test the site) and the extensive selection of products and tools. Listen, I almost added one of those beautiful pastel-coloured ghd stylers to my cart, but then I realised that it was the beginning of the month and I should probably be all responsible and boring. Sigh! But at least I managed to sneak in this glitter polish from Morgan Taylor. I mean seriously guys, how incredible does it look? *swoon*. Sadly, this one appears to be out of stock, but trust me when I say there are a ton of other pretty shades to try out. I have my eye on Candy Coated Coral and Mint Choc O Chip.

If you haven’t browsed RetailBox yet then please do yourself a favour cause there’s not a chance you will leave there without buying something. A quick disclaimer though – “I can’t be held accountable for any purchases you make or if you happen to max out your credit card”. 😉 I will soon be back on the site seeing as how that lavender ghd styler has been calling my name. I’m also almost certain that it must be a sign that’s it’s marked down by almost R300. 😉 Happy shopping beauties.
