While shopping online for your beauty favourites in the comfort of your own home is nothing new, the current #stayhome situation has pushed beauty brands all over the world to step it up a notch to bring their products and experience closer to their customers. The solution? Beauty concierge service.
What’s a beauty concierge service, you ask? Well, instead of just buying from their websites, you can now shop through their WhatsApp service or other social channels. What set this apart from regular online shopping is that you’ll also able to chat just about anything beauty with your favourite brand’s beauty advisors, from skincare tips to the right beauty regimen. And by chatting, we mean talking to a real person here, not some bot configured with automated replies.
Through these conversations, the beauty advisor will also be able to recommend you the best product that suits your concerns – yes, pretty much like how it’s done over a beauty counter, except that it’s now done virtually!
So while we wait until retail stores are given the green light to reopen and indulge in swatching lipstick shades and trying out new skincare formulas, this personalised service is probably as close as you can get to shopping your beauty products with the help of an expert in the brick-and-mortar store. Currently, most beauty brands in Singapore are offering the concierge service via WhatsApp, which we feel makes it easier for the less social media-savvy individuals.
Ahead, 12 brands that offer seamless beauty concierge service in Singapore for your all your beauty needs.
1. Chanel Beauty
Want to send yourself or a dear friend a nice beauty care package? You can now do so with Chanel’s new e-Concierge and home delivery service. Each purchase will be thoughtfully packed in the brand’s Art of Wrapping service, and there will also be a selection of samples customised to your needs.
All you need to do is to simply fill in a request via their website, and a Beauty Advisor will then contact you through phone call or text to follow up on your order and also give a one-to-one beauty and fragrance consultation. After making a payment via a link sent to your email, just kick back and wait for your delivery to arrive within five working days.
Chanel has also announced plans to roll out virtual makeup and skincare sessions, as well as other e-retail options for the convenience of customers over the next few months, so stay tuned!
