I have to admit that I'm not a huge fan of stores that sell beauty products.
From the shelves of confusing products to the intimidating saleswomen wearing too much makeup to the overwhelming smell of 100 fragrances mixed together... yeah, I'll take online shopping instead, thanks.
But up until recently I wasn't completely sure as to where to go for that either, because it seemed like there wasn't one place to find a huge selection in bath, body, makeup, fragrance, skin care and hair care at the lowest possible prices.
And then I was introduced to Apothica.com and its sister site, SkinCareRx.com, and there is pretty much never a need to set foot in a beauty products store ever again.
Dedicated to providing high quality products formulated to promote and enhance your natural beauty, Apothica.com carries only the finest selection of skin care, body care, aromatherapy, and cosmetic products available - there is even an entire category of items for men.
As SkinCareRx focuses more on the clinical side of skin care, Apothica focuses more on the cosmetic side, featuring brands such as Aveda, Too Faced, Smashbox, and more. And in addition to the hundreds of products available, these sites also have Master Estheticians available to help choose the right product for your skin type. Who doesn't need a little help understanding what's what sometimes?
One of the many well-renowned brands that Aphotica carries is Oscar Blandi and his extraordinary hair care collection.
Following his philosophy of "In passion, lies beauty," Oscar Blandi blended his years of extensive professional experience with innovation to launch his hair care line in an effort to help women express themselves confidently.
By infusing his line of products with rich botanical ingredients and having them result in what has been called a "luxurious experience for the senses and any hair style," it's no wonder that Oscar Blandi products are a favorite of the Hollywood elite as well as Beauty Editors and consumers.
So what sort of unique Oscar Blandi products can you find at Apothica? Everything from Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo, available in spray and powder form, for fresh, voluminous hair without having to wash and restyle to Oscar Blandi Jasmine Oil that rids the hair of frizz and leaves a moisturized, yet lightweight and shiny texture to Oscar Blandi Pronto Colore Pens for a quick and easy way to cover roots with wash-out, natural-looking color.
With so many must-haves from brands like Oscar Blandi and more, shopping at Apothica just makes sense! Whether you're stocking up on your favorites, looking for a great gift idea, or just checking out what is new for spring, you'll find all of the classics and many new collections that you're sure to love. There is even a great loyalty program... because who doesn't want to save a little money while picking out their beauty supplies?
Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will be able to stock up on items for their skin, hair, home, and more, because...
