The days of travel and shopping trips overseas have taken an unfortunate hiatus, but if you still want to get your hands on exclusive international beauty brands and products, you now have a way. Get to know Big Apple Buddy, a personalised shopping service that helps customers in Australia obtain must-have American products from stores such as Sephora and ULTA.

The New York-based platform helps shoppers around the world access limited US products, that aren’t available locally. Operating since 2014, the platform aggregates the product catalogues of popular US retailers, which means international consumers can conveniently buy from multiple US stores with a single checkout.

“With international travel no longer an option because of the pandemic, beauty enthusiasts in Australia are turning to Big Apple Buddy to provide them with access to the extensive product range offered by US retailers like Sephora and ULTA,” said Phillis Chan, Co-Founder of Big Apple Buddy. “While these companies may have locations around the world, the product selection outside the US is simply not the same.”

The system is an efficient process fro start to finish, sourcing items, checking and repackaging the goods upon arrival at their facility, preparing all necessary customs documentation and having the parcel safely shipped to the customer’s international location. This is made available for a minimum service fee of $30.

Just because travel, fun and international experiences seem to be off the 2020 menu, it doesn’t mean your beauty cabinet should go without the products you truly want. Indulge in the retail therapy we all deserve right now and have Big Apple Buddy be your guide and facilitator for US beauty must-haves, no matter where you are.
