Extra Tip: Get Your Lazada Goods in Time!
I know I know, the one big thing about online purchase is… “Will I extra receive the goods aka gifts in time for Christmas?”
Doorstep delivery can be often delayed since someone needs to be at home to receive the parcel, and there’s limited deliverymen with a short “I want this to be delivered by this time” timeframe. Currently, customers can choose to pick up their Lazada hauls from 200 POPStation and 100 Ninja Van collection points, but Lazada is increasing the number of self-collection points across the island next year.
Lazada’s chief executive Alexis Lanternier shared some information and tips at the launch of Lazada’s first offline consumer event at JCube on 5 November. With click-and-collect, the item will be available the next day in the collection box. It is up to customers at their own convenience to choose when they want to pick it up.”
Sellers can also drop off orders at the lounges, saving the step of having the goods ferried by Lazada’s delivery partners to the warehouse for sorting and distribution.
So we can pick up our packages from one of Lazada’s 5 permanent collection lounges in Plaza Singapura, Bugis+, JCube, Westgate, and IMM. In addition to collection lockers, the lounges will feature fitting rooms and a product-testing bench to enhance the overall shopping experience.
Psst: Yes, this means you can try on your clothes and return them on the spot if they don’t fit at these unmanned click and collect lounges. Local merchants can also drop their items off here for buyers to pick up.
Garnier Surprise Box Peek
So here’s your usual little peek from me to see what’s in the Lazada x Garnier Surprise Box! I’m truly surprised by the Garnier Suprise Box as it is a box for couples and families. Initially, I was planning to opt for a Homme Box (i.e. Toni & Guy or Beautiful.me For him – I’ve reviewed the Beautiful.me For Her box once here!) but the box from Garnier has products for both Him and Her!
As you know, each surprise boxes are sold at $29 and contain more than $100 worth of products of a particular brand. I’m not supposed to reveal every thing for you guys, but I think if you are ‘sharp’ enough, you will be able to guess what the products are without me telling you out right! 😛
Grab your surprise box here at 6PM on 12 December 2017
The box of Garnier skincare goodies covers the cleansing, acne-care and lightening of your face. Showing 3 of the products, we have 400ml Garnier Micellar Water Pink (For Sensitive Skin), Garnier Men Turbo Light Oil Control Anti-Shine Brightening Cooling Foam, and SPF 36/PA+++ Garnier Light Complete City Ready Serum Cream. If I was to buy these 3 products off the local drugstore, them alone would cost more than $29!
I secretly tried using the Garnier Men Turbo Light Oil Control Anti-Shine Brightening Cooling Foam which was meant for guys in my spots and the cooling sensation helped to elevate the pain in the pimple and it dries up the acne spot after 3 use. However, I would say to apply on the spots instead of the whole face as it might be too strong or drying for ladies.
Garnier Micellar Water Pink is fragrance-free formula for sensitive skin. It feels almost like ordinary water and it doesn’t cause itchiness, redness or irritation on my skin.
Just in case: Micellar water comprises of tiny molecules of cleansing oil which have the ability to attract dirt and impurities from the deepest of the skin pores. The cleansing water looks almost like regular tap water but has a slightly different and oily texture to it. The tiny molecules of cleansing oil are suspended in soft water to remove the oil and dirt from the skin pores while moisturizing it.
Tip: Bookmark your desired boxes and take note of their release dates and timings so you can be the first to get your hands on them!
