The new home to 300 top beauty, body and baby brands such as SKII, L’Oréal and Johnson & Johnson; Beautiful.me aims to disrupt Asia’s health and beauty market with its really unique and intriguing e-commerce model.
As a frequent shopper myself, I am very excited about the coming official launch of Beautiful.me and while I am not sure if they will offer products for men; I decided to sign up for it so that I could get health and beauty products for my wife.
Just so you know, the members-only online shopping destination will offer an extensive range of over 5,000 beauty, body and baby products from 300 top global brands at special members’ prices that start lower.
What this also means is that there will be no more waiting for the next big sale and no more carrying around heavy shopping bags filled with beauty and personal care essentials as orders are delivered right to the doorstep the following day.
If you are new to the whole idea of shopping clubs, shopping clubs like Costco and Walmart’s Sam’s Club in the U.S. have been around for years and they remain popular with consumers because they offer the best value for the money.
Taking inspiration from this retail model of shopping clubs like in the U.S., the team at Beautiful.me tweaked it a bit, made it more exclusive, and brought it online.
Beautiful.me adopts a “profit-less” pricing model and only applies a small markup to the products they sell. By working to cut out retail inefficiencies like costly rental expenses, the company is able to pass these savings on to members in the form of price discounts, rewards and rebates.
To cover basic business expenses, Beautiful.me charges an annual membership fee of SGD$49 [waived off for new members who sign up before August 26th, 2015] which is backed by a 200% Satisfaction Guarantee. What this means is that if you don’t save more than double what you paid for the membership, Beautiful.me will refund you the difference at the end of the year.
From now until August 26th, 2015, you can sign up as an Angel member at www.beautiful.me to enjoy six months of free membership and if you refer 5 friends, you’ll receive one full year of free membership!
What’s more, if you refer 10 friends, you’ll be rewarded with a share of up to SGD$800,000 in cash rebates [yes…Cash and not points!] or 5% of what your referrals purchase in the next 12 months. That’s extra pocket money you can earn without ever breaking a sweat.
