My new Clarisonic is here! Thanks, GCASH American Express and My Shopping Box!

Hooray! I can now really recommend the GCASH American Express Virtual Card + My Shopping Box experience because it really truly does work!

So I bought a Clarisonic Mia on November 16. On November 19, it arrived at "my" US address in California. I authorized its shipment, meaning I paid for it, also with my GCASH American Express card. The fee already includes taxes and duties so I didn't have to get scared of hidden charges.  

There were 2 kinds of shipping offered: air and sea. Air was double the cost but because I was so excited, I chose the to pay the $18 fee. Then because I used GCASH American Express, I even got a discount!!!

Ten days later, my box arrived! Not bad at all. I like how easy the whole process was. I like that I paid for the shipping fee with my GCASH American Express card and that I got a discount. I like that there's no hidden charges. I like that my Clarisonic Mia was delivered straight to my doorstep!!!

I used it over the weekend and, boy oh boy, my skin is super soft and smooth. My face really felt clean but not stripped of moisture. When I applied my products, I felt my skin drink them up. When I wake up now, my skin looks better! And it's only been a few uses! I am so happy I now have a Clarisonic!

Now, remember that I have a fabulous promo where I promised I'd buy one lucky reader beauty products* from Beauty.com using my own GCASH American Express virtual card?


I haven't forgotten either! I was supposed to announce the winner last week but my sponsor, Globe GCASH, wanted to extend it to give more chances to other readers. But today is the day!

P.S. If you want to buy games from Sony Playstation Network, you may have a problem with the GCASH American Express virtual card. But because Third World Nerd is maabilidad, he found a way around it. Read here for his review!

  1. I ordered an item at Amazon and it was delivered at MSB on Nov 22. I authorized the shipment on the same day. As of writing this, my package hasn't arrived. Still got the "DEPARTED US" status. I chose Air shipping btw. I'm starting to worry about my package.

    1. Oh! Well, in my experience with Johnny Air, it's anywhere from 10-15 days. Malamang ganun din for MSB. Holidays pa ngayon so grabe ang volume.

  4. Now that I've seen it work for you, I'm a believer! :) I actually am planning to get an G-Cash Amex just so I could get my own Clarisonic. :) (Btw, is the power supply compatible with 220 V or do I have to find a 110 V socket? I can't seem to find that sort of thing in online reviews. Thanks in advance!)

    1. I mentioned all the costs in this post and the Clarisonic post. The Clarisonic costs $119. The shipping and duties total $18. So $137.

  8. Hello! Do you need to use an adaptor when you plug in the charger to Philippine outlets? :-)
