♥ Introduction - BB Cream Boutique ! BB Creams Galore ! ♥

Hello lovies. Hope you're all doing well. ^^ Recently, I stumbled upon BB Cream Boutique, which I'm happy to announce for my US based ladies, is based in the US! I also don't find their products to be way too overprice like other US based Korean Cosmetic sellers. That's just my opinion though.

I'll be talking about BB Cream Boutique as well as show you what they have sent me!

A little more about BB Cream Boutique. I sent them an email asking a few questions I felt needed to be answered.

When did BB Cream Boutique get it's start?

" We have been operating since 2009, when we first fell in love with the Etude House brand, particularly for their BB Creams. "

What's the message behind BB Cream Boutique?

" Our original goal was to make BB Creams accessible to people in the USA.  Then we started getting inquiries from outside of the US, so we have expanded to ship internationally as well.  We love BB (blemish balm) Creams because they combine the long term healing qualities of skin care products along with the immediate coverage that a cosmetic product provides.  Since we carry both skin care and cosmetics products, this was the perfect name to adopt as our store name! "

What products do you most recommend from your website?

" Of course, our most recommended products are the BB Creams that we carry:

However, mostly due to customer requests, we have added numerous skin care and cosmetics products from several popular brands, so we encourage our customers to browse our store and see what items would work for them.  Each person's skin care and cosmetics needs will be different, but we hope that everyone will be able to find something that works for them in our store's wide selection! "

BB Cream Boutique has PLENTY of BB Cream options; 5 pages to be exact, but as they have said, they aren't just BB Cream. They stock makeup and skincare by popular brands, including Etude House, Holika Holika, Missha, Nature Republic, Skin Food, and Tony Moly. I find these brands to be the most basic brands to start out with, especially if you're just starting to use Korean Cosmetics.

Some more information about BB Cream Boutique, taken from their FAQ :

How much is shipping?

 " If you are in the USA, we charge a flat rate of $6.00 USD for any size order.  Save on shipping by ordering all at once!
If you are outside of the USA, our shopping cart will now calculate shipping for you.  Shipping fee will depend on your location and order size. "
It's always nice to know there is a flat rate for US residents. If you have friends who also want to order, ordering together will save money! I'm not sure how much shipping would be for my international readers.

I want to receive my order faster. Can I choose a faster shipping option?

We now offer the option to upgrade to Express Shipping!  With Express Shipping, orders will be processed and shipped faster, and will reach you more quickly than standard shipping.  Choose the “Upgrade to Express Shipping” option during checkout.
Note: All items in your order must be in stock and not on backorder.  If an item is on backorder, it will be excluded from the shipment and will be shipped separately via standard shipping.  Express Shipping cutoff time is 8am PST.  Orders will ship within 24 hours.
For customers in the USA:
Shipping time is approximately 1-2 business days. 

For customers outside of the USA:
Shipping time is approximately 3-5 business days, but can be delayed by customs.

Good to know that if you're in a hurry, BB Cream Boutique does offer express shipping.

How do I track my order?

You can track your order status through the My Account section.  You will need the email address you used when the order was placed, and the order number from the confirmation email.
It seems like each order comes with a tracking code so you're not worried about where your package is all the time.
Now to talk about my experience with BB Cream Boutique!
Customer service was great. Replied to my emails within 24 hours. Understanding and informative. I didn't have any issues with communication or with getting my package!

My package was sent in a flat rate, priority mail box. There were no dents in the box at all, so shipping from BB Cream Boutique to me was a breeze.

I ordered these items on August 6th.
The items shipped on August 7th.
I received the items on August 11th.

The package took about 5 days from order to me receiving them. Not very long considering if I ordered them overseas, it would take about a week and a half to two weeks.

Upon opening, the items are protected by some packing nuts and a air filled packing bag. Nothing was broken inside the box.

Here's the items, unpacked. I received :

The sachet holds my receipt as well as some samples.

I got four samples, two Etude House Collagen Moistfull creams, one Etude House GOBACK Total Solution, and one Etude House BB Cream Cotton Fit.

As BB Cream Boutique is a US based company, I feel the price of the items as well as the shipping time is really good. Considering the items have to be flown in from overseas, the products are moderately priced and won't break your bank. If you're looking to get your items quickly, BB Cream Boutique would be a great option to try out!

You can always check out BB Cream Boutique here at their website.
Be sure to follow them on Twitter and check out their Facebook.

Hope you've enjoyed this introduction to BB Cream Boutique! I've already started using the items and I'm loving them so far, so be on the lookout for those reviews!

Have a wonderful day!
