Hassle-Free International Shopping starts here: GCASH American Express Virtual Card+GIVEAWAY CLOSE


If you're an avid reader of my blog, you know that international shopping has played a big part in the creation of The Beauty Junkee. I would have to credit my adventurous and curious nature for my penchant for international makeup brands, especially those that can't be found locally. Add to that, I want to give my fellow Filipinas a glimpse of the good products from the other side of the world, I love the good feeling I get knowing that I've purchased the product/s cheaply, and the thrill I feel whenever I receive a package. It was fun at first but when I've started valuing time and money, I've realized that I always end up spending more in international shopping: The ridiculous taxes I have to pay, the travel time to and fro the Customs office plus the waiting time to release my package, (time is equally valuable too!) and the sneaky officers who'd furtively entertain me as I wait in line and end up asking for a bribe if they sense that I don't want to waste my day waiting for my package. Ugh! 

This problem has spawned a breed of local pre-ordering websites. It was cool at first, knowing that someone's willing to go through the hassle of international shopping for you and without the ridiculous taxes, but I started questioning why most of them would have their own exchange rates, and what their list of miscellaneous fees is for. In the end, I also have to pay more than what I have to.

 One of my international purchases from Lime Crime

Since those realizations, I've hibernated from international shopping. But I can't deny that sometimes, I still feel the urge to shop or contact local pre-ordering websites, but I vowed to be more wise with my time and money.

I'm an avid user of GCASH because I believe that it's one of the best payment methods ever invented in our country. It's so easy and quick to use, and I use it most of the time in online shopping. I think I have just been turned into a zealot when I've found out about Globe's newest GCASH service, GCASH American Express Virtual Card.

Online shopping fans, rejoice! We can now shop both in local and international websites sans the ridiculous costs, and without the commitment of applying for a credit card! Globe has recently tied up with American Express and created this newest, easiest, and fastest way to pay for our international online orders. In a nutshell, GCASH American Express Virtual Card is just like a credit card, but sans the interests!

Anyway, Black Friday Sale is coming up! To those who are not familiar with the Black Friday sale, this is a nationwide sale in the US where all online and physical boutiques and stores go on a crazy sale! Black Friday Sale is starting on November 23, so now is the perfect time for you to sign up for an account! (I just did!) Click READ MORE and find out how GCASH American Express Virtual Card works, plus check out what I've ordered for myself and my readers. Yes! I have a giveaway so read the rest of this post now! :)
I'll walk you through the process of signing up so you can spend the rest of your time jotting down what you'll buy on the Black Friday Sale. :)


Sign up for a free trial. Fill in all the necessary details and that's it! What I love about their signing up process is it doesn't require you to fill up pages of surveys and information forms. Such a time saver, eh? For prepaid subscribers, you will be asked to verify your account. A pop- up window will appear and please follow the prompt contained in it. For postpaid subscribers, just fill in the form and you're done, unless Globe requires you to accomplish a few more details to verify your account. I'm a postpaid subscriber and in my experience, I didn't have to verify anything anymore after the initial sign- up. But of course, this may vary. :)

If you want to continue your subscription after your free trial expires, you can purchase any of their subscription plans:

P25.00/month
P140.00/6 months
P250.00/1 year

Only P25.00 to maintain your "credit card." Isn't that amazing?! :)


 After signing up, you will receive a text message containing your own personalized passcode, then you will receive an email from Globe. Click the hyperlinked word here, and it will redirect you to this page:

This is where you will view all the confidential information about your account. It's secure!

After entering your personalized passcode, you will be redirected to a file containing the following:

1. Credit card information (number and expiry date)
2. Personalized US Address (where you will ship all your orders from US websites)
3. Personalized US Telephone number

You guys might  be wondering if the personalized address and telephone number are secure. Yes! They're legit and have been approved by Globe. :)


Shortly, you will receive an email from My Shopping Box, the partner courier of Globe. When you sign up for a GCASH American Express Virtual Card, you will be automatically signed up for a My Shopping Box account as well. (How fast and convenient!) Go to My Shopping Box's website.


Key in your own username and password contained in the email.




Fill up this mini form. In here, you must put your Philippine address and contact details. My Shopping Box will take care of the shipment of your package from abroad to here. Your items will be shipped directly to your doorstep. No ma, no need to go to the Customs office to endure long lines and pay questionable taxes!



And you're all set! Just wait for an email from My Shopping Box containing all the necessary information for you to track your package. :)

The shopping diva side of me came out all of a sudden so I went shopping right away using my GCASH American Express Virtual Card. Where else? From my dream store, SEPHORA! Check out what I bought:









When I've finally accomplished my Sephora orders, the money in my GCASH wallet has been cashed out thereafter. No verification whatsoever needed!

    Answer to the question: I would definitely buy the Korres Lip Blockbuster Volume 2. Aside from my love for eyeshadows, I also love lipbalms. If I feel that my lips are hydrated, I feel healthy. That's why I have to keep seperate lipbalms at home and in my bag. I also love the look of having baby soft lips and I think this product will do the job.. ;))

    Answer to the question:
    I want to buy SOAP & GLORY products this Black Friday Sale! I discovered S&G thru pasalubongs from Canada. I loved their products in an instant! From shower gels, to body scrubs, to body butter and foot creams, their original Pink scent will drive you crazy! :)

    I researched where can I get these products, but unfortunately, they are not readily available here in the Philippines. However, online stores, Sephora & Boots are selling them. BUT, it has always been a problem trying to ship items from Sephora (US) and Boots (UK), since they require shipping addresses to their respective countries ONLY. With this GCASH Amex, I think it will be a lot easier to buy products because shipping (address) will not be a problem anymore. I'm excited to try this one!
    Thank you, Martha, for sharing this wonderful 'breakthrough' to online shoppers like me. :)

  38. Answer to the question:
    I have never experienced buying on a Black Friday sale nor buying anything online with credit cards because I am too scared to use them because of credit card frauds/stealing and such as, but this is such a good offer from Globe! I may have to register myself soon and buy online at Sephora some stuff that are not available here in the Philippines. I always ask my friends abroad to buy it from me and it's such a hassle. Can't wait!

    Thanks for the giveaway! :)

    My top 3 products that I would definitely buy in a whim given the chance to shop on a Black Friday in Sephora would be the following:

    Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo
    Clarisonic Mia 2
    Kate Somerville Exfolikate

    As a model I'm not allowed to condition my hair whenever I have shoots just so styling products can stick to my hair well. Sometimes it could get greasy when I don't use conditioner because the dryness over compensates the natural oils on my hair so Oscar Blandi Dry shampoo is a must to soak up those oils.

    Another thing is that being a beauty/vlogger also entails me to keep my skin healthy, and lets face it, I also have to face the camera sans makeup sometimes for a tutorial, therefore clear skin is a must! Kate Somerville is one product that a lot of beauty gurus and celebrities rave about to keep skin in its best shape, and who hasn't heard about the wonders of Clarisonic? Its such a staple in every beauty junkie's vanity.

    Lastly, being able to go out and rock the world with no makeup and all and knowing that your hair isn't greasy is the best confidence booster!

    Answer to the question "What do you want to buy online this Black Friday Sale? Why?"
    - I want to buy Naked 1 or Naked 2 Palette. In my 22 years of existence, and being a late bloomer, I've never own an eyeshadow palette making me not so fond of putting eyeshadows because I'm a bit not confident with it. I've been wanting to buy Naked Palette because it seems to be one of the best Palettes available in the market but it's too expensive for me that's why I included it in my wishlist. Who knows I might receive it this Christmas as a gift and reward for myself overcoming everything as an independent person. Another thing is that I don't have credit card yet, thanks to GCASH American Express Virtual Card and My Shopping Box for making my simple wish this Christmas possible.

    I'd definitely buy Sephora makeups! As I have a self-imposed (online) shopping ban these past months to focus on my board exam review, I'd like to reward myself by taking advantage of the crazy sales this Black Friday. Yes, I admit I don't have the most logical of reasons for shopping. I basically do it to reward myself--delayed gratification at its finest! Hihi. And Globe GCash AMEX couldn't be any more timely for this! :)

He recently competed with his age under14 at the Alaska football cup held in Alabang Country Club. Out of 36 teams they bagged the 3rd place.. which is his first award in first competition. A new pair of soccer shoes will be nice as a Christmas gift for him.. to inspire him more .:)

This palette can really help me today and in the future because i'm an aspiring flight attendant. And being in that field one must know how to look good not just on the outside but also inside.

    Answer to the question

    Honestly: there are only two stuff I dream of buying in the black friday sale. the one is a esprit watch and the second is a camera. I would love to buy them because they remind me that time is very important so does how we live our life. the camera reminds me that every moment needs to be captured regardless of awkward it is, time lost can't be back anymore, but pictures of it can be kept.the watch is just so dear to me. wearing warch, is like wearing smile, it should always be there.

    I have lots on my personal shopping list because I like buying stuff from Sephora but if I had the chance to go online shopping during the Black Friday sale, I would first focus on buying Christmas gifts for my family and friends.

    This new tie-up from Gcash and Amex would make it easier since it will help me buy the things I want online without worrying about too much charges. I only get stuff from Sephora because I ask my cousin who lives in Canada to buy and send them, but with this virtual card, I will have the chance to buy the stuff online :)

    "What do you want to buy online this Black Friday Sale? Why?" I would like to buy Lorac Pro Palette. It's expensive to pre-order from sites, and it's a hassle to disturb friends and relatives for purchases. Lorac is not available here and I've heard good reviews about this palette. While there are great eyeshadow palettes around, it's hard to find one with a good variety of matte shades, great for fashion and bridal shoots :) I'm sure my clients will love the eyeshadow palette as well.

    Answer:

    I want to buy something useful for myself since I've been very good this year. I saved up a lot of money by refraining myself to buy makeups and other nonsense thing. So this means I can buy my high end makeups from Sephora and if ever given another chance, I want to buy my father a new pair of eyeglasses from a reputable brand from online shops abroad.

    Answer to the question: This holiday season - first and foremost - I do believe that online shopping is the way to go! Not only do you get to maximize today's technological innovations, but you actually get to cross out many items in your shopping list minus the intense holiday rush! It's super stress-free... my beauty and composure remains, tee hee! But seriously, if I were to buy something online, it would have to be the URBAN DECAY NAKED PALETTE 2! After religiously using my first ever UD NP #1 down to its last pigment (I wish I took a picture to show proof, haha), I guess it's time for me to move on to the next level: the UD NP #2! With its bold color choices, I am sooo excited to get creative with its shining, shimmering, and splendid combinations not only for my eyes, but for others as well! I love doing my friends and officemates' make up during my free time! After all, this merry season is all about giving and sharing right? So why not give and share the wonder of beauty! xoxo

    Black Friday's over but I wanted to buy a recliner chair, changed my mind and wanted a kitchen mixer, then back to a recliner. Bought some books instead. :)
    Why books? I love books! They take you far away from where you are. They give you a glimpse of being someone else, you feel what they feel, see what they see, and live their lives. I will never stop reading books!

    I’ve been an avid user of Globe way back in my elementary days until now that I’m a mommy already. I’ve Been using Globe for more or less 10 years now and I can’t believe that Globe is innovating for more! I’ve been very satisfied of their service ever since and I am glad that now they have this GCash AMEX virtual card which opens a lot of doors into the International Market. With Globe, we can really do it!
    We can shop all over the globe using our GCash AMEX card. Thanks to Globe!



    Given that chance, I will surely haul over Sephora products. Because just like you Ms. Martha I love makeup and everything which could bring out the beauty that we have. I’m a seeker and I love to try out new products. We have the same taste when it comes to Naked 2 urban decay, that’s included in my wishlist. These products can transform us from nothing to WOW! That’s why I soooo love them. Can’t wait to try on these products!

    I’m new into your blog and I am loving it! Your thoughts are very helpful especially your reviews. I’m a fan of yours now. Will be looking forward for more of your blog posts ☺




    More Power to Globe and The Beauty Junkee!

    Answer to the question: This Black Friday Sale, I'd like to buy my long-waiting wishlist beauty products from Sephora such as Josie Maran's collections, Korres, Fresh, and more Sephora Favorites! Like any other girls, I am obsessed with anything beautiful but of course, those that won't harm my sensitive skin that's why I'm always eyeing for those using natural ingredients such as Josie Maran's argan oil finds! Thank Goodness because with American Express Virtual Card and GCASH, I won't anymore have problems getting these treasures in a faster, simpler way! Thank you Ms. Martha and Globe! :)

  78. Hello Martha! So if you will buy from these stores, they will not ask for you billing address anymore if you will use the Gcash Virtual card? I tried shopping at Kohl's before but they wont allow international credit cards. Is this still applicable at Kohl's? If yes, that would be great as I dont have to worry about them not accepting international credit cards.

  79. Anonymous: Hello there! For the billing address, all online boutiques ask for that. Just look for the option "same as shipping" address and click that. :) That's the instruction of GCASH Amex. :)
