Why buying name brand products from an unauthorized retailer is bad

Restore. Renew. Revitalize.

by | Dec 28, 2022

When you buy a product online or even from a store that is not an authorized dealer of the product you risk getting an inferior, altered, expired or even FAKE product. Or it could have been obtained illegally. There is no way to know for sure. Using these products could result in being ineffective or even harmful to you; the skin is the largest organ on the body, meaning it soaks up everything.  What’s so harmful about cosmetics you ask? Expired products can have bacteria, and microorganisms that cause skin infections. Other symptoms such as irritation, rashes, and breakouts may occur as well.

Most retailers are fighting harder than ever to stop these online .com’s from selling their products, however when they shut one down another pops up. It is an uphill battle, but we are all in the fight together!

When you buy from an actual AUTHORIZED product retailer, you have the support from not only the company you bought it from but the actual brand, doesn’t that sound much better than maybe getting expired product?! We thought so! When we sell skin care products we provide consultations, instructions and tips and tricks to ensure you get the best results you can.

We are a proud retailer of: PCA, Neocutis, Epionce, EltaMD, Revision, Vivify, and Clarisonic.

Feel free to contact us with any questions about the products we carry!
