You’re probably here because you’ve already heard of this brand. If not, Paula’s Choice is a research-based skincare brand that claims to keep its promises. It is made in the USA, never tested on animals, fragrance-free, and non-irritating. If you’ve been wanting to try their cult-face Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant but don’t know where to buy it, then lucky for you I know where to buy Paula’s Choice in the Philippines, and yes, they’re legit stores and sellers. Scroll down to know them all.
ONLINE STORES THAT SHIPS TO THE PHILIPPINES
CULT BEAUTY – This UK-based online store is something you will often read on this website because they really have almost every beauty product you want and they ship offer free shipping to the Philippines on orders above £40! (They also have FedEx shipping which is faster and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS IS WHAT YOU USE DURING THE PANDEMIC because this will be delivered straight to your house, no need to go to the post office and our local postal really sucks. But the shipping fee is £30)
Another thing to take note with Cult Beauty, don’t be intimidated by the prices, because they listed it all with an added UK Tax, but if you live outside of the United Kingdom or Europe, the added tax will be deducted before you checkout. And you can also use Shopback in here to get rebates. They offer a lot of beauty brands that are not available in the Philippines, besides Paula’s Choice, they have the highly coveted The Ordinary, The Inkey List, Milk Makeup, and other more cult-fave beauty brands.
NET-A-PORTER – This is store is more popular as a fashion retailer, but they also offer bougie beauty brands like Bryedo, La Mer, Le Labo, Gucci Beauty, Dr. Barbara Strum, Tata Harper, Victoria Beckham, and more like Paula’s Choice. They ship to the Philippines via DHL (which is my favorite courier, very reliable) but the shipping fee costs $55 + tax (if you order above $200).
LOOK FANTASTIC UK – Another UK-based online store. I don’t often shop here unless I’m really desperate because I like the offering and customer service of Cult Beauty more. Besides Paula’s Choice, they also have The Ordinary, La Roche-Posay, and more. They also offer free shipping to the Philippines but I highly recommend opting for their tracked delivery which costs £16.99. But on orders above £230.00, they offer free tracked shipping.
SKIN STORE – I recently discovered this store during the pandemic and they offer shipping to the Philippines for only $15. This store is owned by Look Fantastic (a UK-based beauty retailer mentioned above) and besides Paula’s Choice, they also sell The Ordinary (and in promo bundles). The only downside to this store is that it is based in the US and they’re postal system is quite chaotic these days. You will NEED A LOT OF PATIENCE waiting for your order. The products will be shipped via FedEx.
GET UNREADY WITH ME – This shop is run by @yourporeguy, a member of the Asian Beauty Community Philippines, and someone whose reviews I follow and trust. So I can guarantee you that his products are legit. He sells Paula’s Choice, Krave Beauty, Klairs, CosRx, Nature Republic, iUnik, Nacific, Some By Mi, and more.
LOCAL ONLINE STORE
Today’s Skin – I learned about this store from some local influencers I follow and trust. This where I bought my Moon Dust, but you can also buy those hard to find products in the Philippines such as The Ordinary, Glossier, Sunday Riley, Niod, Moon Juice, Pixi, Embryolisse, and more! For payments, they accept credit cards, PayPal, and bank deposits. They also offer free shipping.
The Globe Trotters PH – They’re the only Instagram reseller that I recommend. I have personally been their costumer since 2018, and they’re also highly recommended by the local Asian Beauty Community. They sell Asian beauty products from Japan to South Korea but they also sell some Western-based brands like Paula’s Choice, Glow Recipe, Krave Beauty, CereVe, The Inkey List, and of course, The Ordinary. Some items are on-hand but a majority of them are for pre-orders. Waiting time depends.
So far, there are the only legit stores I know where to buy Paula’s Choice in the Philippines. As always, if I found more, I’ll update this post.
