60 beauty products with low return rates
When it comes to shopping, I’ve always preferred to search for my latest IRL product patch rather than online. Since the age of 5, I have had a weakness for sparkling and lacquer stores like Nordstrom and MAC. These were my favorite stops in the mall, and as I got older, researching new and exciting beauty concoctions at other retailers like Sephora, Ulta, and even the drugstore became a kind of peace-inducing therapy for me. (Unfortunately my credit card got the end of the stick with that one – RIP)
Not only did I enjoy just wandering the aisles filled with tempting flasks, jars and bottles, but I also loved looking and testing to see how the undertones would flatter (or not flatter) my skin tone or how the consistency of a serum or oil would be on my skin. Hygienic? Not funny? A lot! That said, even though things have opened up since the pandemic, and I can certainly go back to my old physical purchasing MO, I have still made most of my investments online. Which, while convenient, can also be a bit tricky. There’s a greater risk of not liking a product, and it’s disappointing to have to repackage and send back a formula you had high hopes for.
I don’t know about you, but it’s pretty much my prerogative to avoid online returns at all costs, so I did some Nancy Drew-caliber sleuth work to dramatically reduce your chances of returning said purchases. To help you streamline your purchasing process and ensure your satisfaction almost guaranteed, I reached out to six popular beauty retailers – Violet Gray, Net-a-Porter, Thirteen Moon, Revolve, Dermstore, and Credo, to see which beauty products have the least returned. A little shiny, right? Keep scrolling through 60 holy grail beauty products with near perfect no-return rate.
