As I previously mentioned, I love online shopping. I got addicted to just ordering online and wait for it to be delivered in my doorstep. So convenient for a lazy person like me. So I got excited when I was given the chance to try out another online shopping site – Gearbest.
What is Gearbest
This 2019, Gearbest decided to open their doors and extend their business in the Philippines. They offer a wide range of premium to affordable products. I was lucky to be able to try out one of their item first-hand.
Established in 2014, GearBest is one of the fastest developed cross-border e-commerce platform. Now, GearBest is committed to 3C electronic products, toys, clothing and etc, while expanding its online SKUS and quantity.
Gearbest also claims to respond to customer inquiries quickly although I haven’t personally tried it yet. I never had any issues with the item I received so far. As for now, they answer queries through tickets. Although, I hope they’ll have a chat option for immediate assistance in the future.
I’ve checked their Warranty and Return policy and it was pretty impressive as they offer a 45-Day Money back guarantee and a 1-year warranty for most items.
What is Stylebest
Gearbest also has a dedicted website for trendy fashion needs – Stylebest. It’s still under Gearbest but it’s more focused on fashion and accessories.
They currently have a grand opening sale for up to 90% off on selected items. For new customers, you can use the coupon code: 2019NEW for additional discounts. There will also be free shipping and free priority shipping for orders $49.99 and above.
You may browse their website and get items as low as $10! Just click the ‘Under $10 Deals’, you can pick up the products here: Stylebest Deals
For those who don’t have credit cards or those who are not comfortable paying online – good news! They’ve just added the Cash on Delivery as payment method. Also, it’s available anywhere in the Philippines!
Gustala Pro Curling Iron
The curling iron has 4 heat settings and a heat resistant glove included in the box. The glove is to protect you when holding the cool tip while working on your hair. I tried to use the highest setting which is 220 Degrees Celcius and it instantly gave me nice curls.
I would suggest using heat protection spray beforehand just to be sure. I am very conservative when it comes to my hair so I won’t take the risk.
Honestly, I’m still struggling in using this device. I’m still practicing so I apologize if I can’t show you a picture with my curled hair. LOL. I’ve had several iron curlers before that costs more than this. However, I’m happy to say that
For the shipping experience, I was impressed by how fast my item was delivered considering I am located in South Luzon. The courier who handled my delivery was Black Arrow. I also received a text message beforehand to notify me that they will deliver my package within the day.
We already have tons of existing online shopping websites here in our country. However, I still think Gearbest has potential and would be a great addition in the Philippine market. Their wide range of products plus good customer service will definitely be a hit to those who love online shopping.
