Learn from My Mistake - DON’T Buy Skincare off Mass Retailers

Have you purchased skincare products off massive online retailers like Amazon or Walmart?

If you have...do you know that what you’re putting on your face every day might not be an authentic product? You might have been using a counterfeit skincare product that can be harmful not just to your skin, but for your health.

I’ll be honest. I used to buy skincare products off of random online retailers. Hey, skincare can get expensive. Who isn’t out to save a few bucks here and there when they can find it?

I USED TO...that is, until I got burned. Literally.

I literally burned my skin with a counterfeit product. The only reason I’m sharing this embarrassing little tale with you is because I don’t want anyone else to make the same mistake I made. Everyone wants great products at a great price, but sometimes you pay with much more than money when you try to bargain. You can end up paying with your skin, like me. You could also end up paying with your long-term health.

The product I bought was priced at just a fraction under the official price found on its authorized retailer, around 15% off. It came in very convincing looking packaging I gotta hand them that, the presentation was nearly impeccable. The right branding colors, their signature logo… even the premium looking jar and lid. The cream smelled a little off, but close enough to the real thing that I mistook it for a small formulation change.

“If whatever I’m looking at needs me to look up half the ingredients because I have no way of knowing what they are without googling, I’m not putting it on my skin or anywhere near my face!”

I thought I got 15% off a product that never went on sale. I was ecstatic! What I ended up with was a patch of burned skin that needed medical treatment and some residual inflammation that I still have to deal with to this day.

Ever since that horrific incident, I made sure to buy my skincare products only from official sources, like EMstore.com. They carry all of the organic products I love. And, honestly, they’re priced very well for the quality of their ingredients and their effectiveness.

I just wanted to shave a few bucks off the top by shopping around...but I’ll never make that mistake again.


I’ll Only Shop at EMstore for Authentic, Organic, High-Quality Products That Are GOOD for My Skin and My Health

Counterfeit products can damage your skin and your health, but what about genuine products? Are popular skincare products safe as long as I buy them from an official retailer?

It depends on the brand and the ingredients.

Many people choose to buy products from cheaper skincare brands to try to save money. What you have to know is that cheaper products are usually cheaper for a reason - they may use inferior, unsafe ingredients, and their manufacturing standards are probably not very stringent.

Now I only buy my skincare products from EMstore, because I finally realized that my skin and I deserve the best. My skin has been with me through all the ups and downs in life, it’s the first impression I make on people, and, let’s face it - I want to have that healthy glow all the time. Don’t you? sss

If you didn’t care about how you looked, you wouldn’t be reading this. You deserve the best, too! All of you reading this sentence right now - you deserve the best skincare products at prices you can afford.

You know what you don’t deserve? Harmful chemicals like triclosan, formaldehyde, parabens, and tar. Many of these toxic ingredients have been linked to cancer. Others can cause irritation, and some can even disrupt your hormones to alter your body chemistry.

Yet, that’s what you’re likely to find in most skincare products you can buy off the shelves in local stores. I don’t care if you’re paying top dollar for these creams and gels - READ THE LABELS! Even many of the most “premium” brands that command higher price tags are filled to the brim (literally) with unsafe chemicals.

These skincare products might appear to work to moisturize your skin and repair damage initially, but they’ll eventually lead to a whole bunch of health problems that might become hard to identify later on with continued use.


“EMstore only carries high-quality organic skincare products from top-tier brands like Eminence Organics and Phytomer - brands that you could previously only find in the highest-end luxury spas. ”

Their product selection includes pretty much anything you’ll need to get beautiful, healthy, youthful, radiant skin, like:

Cleansers Tonics and mists Exfoliants and peels Masks Serums Moisturizers Night creams

You get the picture. You can easily shop by your skin type, or dive straight into your favorite routine essentials.

And, remember, EMstore’s selection is entirely organic and eco-conscious, so you don’t have to worry about accidentally buying something that’s harmful to your skin or your body.

When you buy from EMstore, you’ll know you’re getting an authentic product that’s going to be amazing for your skin, and great for your long-term health.

Can I Buy These Products from Amazon, Walmart etc.?

Can you? Sure you can! I can’t stop you.

But...should you? NO!

If my cautionary tale above hasn’t convinced you to steer clear of unauthorized retailers, you need to read on and find out just what sort of harm you could be doing to your skin and your body by buying from unofficial sources.

Look, you’ve read this far because you care about your skin, and you want to look radiant. You probably spend more than you think you should on skincare and cosmetics...but are you getting the real deal? Online retailers like Amazon, Walmart and others are unregulated and are flooded with counterfeit products from countless unauthorized sellers. Take the gamble and you might very well end up getting burned.

You Could Be Moisturizing Your Skin with...Poison

No doubt you’ve heard of the phrase “let the buyer beware.” Aside from the usual culprits mentioned above like triclosan, formaldehyde, parabens, and tar, let’s look at some of the ADDITIONAL ingredients found in counterfeit skincare and cosmetic products that you should beware of:

Aluminum

Arsenic

Bacteria

Beryllium

Cadmium

Cyanide

Animal feces

Lead

Mercury

Urine

Many of these chemicals are carcinogens, meaning they have been shown to cause or increase your chances of developing cancer with prolonged exposure. Some of them are also in genuine, popular skincare and cosmetic products you can find off the shelves in stores, where they are typically in much lower concentrations as per FDA guidelines. Counterfeit products can contain up to 300x the legally permitted limit of any of the above “ingredients.”

Although the FDA has established legal limits that allow companies to include little bits of certain toxic chemicals in their products, it doesn’t mean that they’re actually safe or good for you. Poison is still poison. This is why I only recommend organic skincare products, because they have absolutely NONE of these ingredients - as long as you’re buying authentic.

But how did things like arsenic, lead and bacteria even make it onto this list, you ask?

Counterfeit products are often manufactured in unregulated and unsanitary conditions.

These products also tend to be improperly packaged and stored. This explains why so many counterfeit products are contaminated with unimaginables like feces and urine.

The FBI warns that the use of these phony products can also cause conditions like:

Acne

Psoriasis

Rashes

Eye infections
