Beauty Bargains at AMK Central

A couple of years ago, i found out 3 shops at amk central that sell really cheap beauty stuff.

All located at amk central, near the mac outside ang mo kio hub. These shops are found along the stretch there. They are Venus (also found at boon lay mrt station), pink beauty (found in tpy central, west mall) & spring.

From my past experiences, its usually the fight between pink beauty & venus for value buy. Drugstore brands such as ginvera, loreal, bio-essence, neutrogena, simple, vaseline can be found there. Products ranging from hair, body and facial stuff. Counter brands such as estee lauder, biotherm, clinique, sk2, clarins & kose can be found @ pink beauty. Even salon brands such as Redken, kerastase can be found at venus & pink beauty. Something that surprises me is that even imported japan brands such as kracie masks can be found at venus and pink beauty. Perfumes such as anna sui, DKNY and versace can be found in pink beauty.

Well, i only buy my drugstore stuff from these shops so far. for eg, i bought my simple cleansing wipes there and they dint give me any problems. As for the counter brands, im not so sure if its authentic since i dint buy there. what i can assure you is the price haha. Its really cheap, at least 20%! the price diff can be understand since hk pricing is also very cheap.

There is watsons & guardian nearby these beauty shops, so do remember to chk them out as well, there are times when watsons and guardian are cheaper, esp when they have discounts and sales.

Do check the manufactured dates when you buy. sometimes when the price diff is so big till its hard to believe, check the dates. take those at the back of the rack, cos tts where they put those thats manufactured later ;)

Update: The distributor for versace perfume at pink beauty is the same as the 1 found at metro. so i guess that means the perfume is authentic haha!
