How Awesome is Amazon Really?

I can’t remember what blog post I read, but someone has already mentioned how great Amazon is for international skincare.  Let’s face it, we are a globalized society thanks to the internet, tourism, and international business in general.  There is this cross-pollination of products which somehow Amazon makes easy to access.  The exception is probably European luxury retailers who feel that selling through Amazon would cheapen their brand.  Other than the likes of Louis Vuitton or Chanel, Amazon sells international products that we all have access to.  That’s how I was able to buy Korean skincare through them.  More importantly, products are often cheaper on Amazon compared to retail stores or other websites like Sephora.  I bought my Tsubaki hair mist at a Japanese grocery store for $16.99, but Amazon sells it for $9.74.  The great thing is we have options.
