We often see the most beautiful beauty and skincare products plastered everywhere online, only to look them up and find that they’re from abroad. Not wanting to pay the crazy customs costs and wait 3 months to receive our item (if we receive it at all), we wistfully scroll through photos and wish that we had a Sephora near us.
In recent times, things are changing! There are now a multitude of amazing South African websites that stock all the international brands that you could dream of. Here are 5 of the best – happy shopping!
Just as well stocked as any overseas website, Betty has it all! They are the sole South African stockist of some of the brands they carry, and have an amazing range of products to choose from. Brands include Colourpop, Morphe, e.l.f., Jeffree Star and Glossier. A beauty YouTuber’s dream! They also stock lots of great skincare products. To make it even better, they have frequent sales so that you can save on your favourite items.
