WELCOME to VON Beauty Express

Hello, hello! Welcome to VON Beauty Express, your 1-stop site for discounted beauty products.
The products on offer are bath and body care, skin care, cosmetics and a variety of bags from some of these brands -
The Body Shop, Bath and Body Works (from USA), Estee Lauder, Boots, and a few Crabtree & Evelyn hand therapies, for now. No super-brands or expensive, unaffordable products in this site. I hope to add more products from different brands (affordable to everyone) as I acquire more from sales, warehouse sales and hopefully for some items, directly from their suppliers/manufacturers.

Why am I doing this? For several reasons......

LOVE beauty products very much! I love to shop for these things, especially during sales, and can't resist the good deals, in terms of gift sets and the free gifts that come with them. (Such as Christmas Limited Edition sets of cosmetics.) Many times, I would buy some items that I still have loads of at home just to qualify for the free gifts. Especially when these free gifts are accompanied with pretty cosmetic or tote bags which I'm ever so crazy about! Hence I end up with extras of many things I already have...LEADING TO STORAGE PROBLEMS!
Although I love all the items I have in my personal collection, due to shortage of space, I have to let go of some of my precious beauties. Sob sob! But good news for you all!

Rest assured, ladies, that I'm a very fussy buyer and would scrutinise every item meticulously before I buy them. So all the items I'm letting go are
authentic and in tip-top condition as though you've bought them from the shop/counter. And I have only 1 or 2 of everything, so you can be assured of some exclusivity because some of the brands (such as Bath and Body Works, found only in the USA) and some items are already sold out in shops. As for the price I'm selling these items for, I can tell you that it will be lower than retail.

-I know some of you out there, sometimes would like to buy 1 or 2 items in a gift set, but not so willing to fork out a large amount of cash to buy the whole set with some items that you might not need or some items with colours that you may not like (in terms of colour cosmetics), so here I am to help you save some money in the current economic gloom. I'm the same here, always liking only certain items in a gift set, but end up buying the whole set. So some of the things I don't need could be the things that you've been dying to have. My loss will be your gain.

-Because I can't resist any good deal, whenever there is a sale - be it 50% off, buy 2 get 1 free, or the more you buy, the cheaper it gets (a very common warehouse sale gimmick!), I would tend to buy a lot just for the sake of the so-called savings. For certain things that I like so much, especially Limited Edition items, I would buy an extra 2 or 3, just in case. That's just me. But I can pass the savings I've made on to you here in
VON Beauty Express.

-For some of you who are living outside Klang Valley where most of the sales and warehouse sales are being held, it may be difficult for you to commute to KL/PJ on that particular day due to work/study commitments, problems looking for a babysitter, etc. So here I am....offering you the chance to shop for the things you like in the convenience of your own home. Without having to deal with the chaos and endless queues!

-As a
stay-at-home mum, I need something to do to pass my time, besides taking care of my super-active little girl who also happens to share my passion for beauty stuff, and what better way than to indulge in a little 'play' with my favourite toys - beauty products and to share them with you, ladies.

NOTE: Please be assured that I'm not in any way affiliated with any of the brands, and I'm doing this as a hobby, to clear off some storage space in my place and most important of all, to share beauty with all of you, but at an affordable price!
