If there’s one thing the beauty, makeup and fashion industries are fantastic for it’s the simply amazing communities which exist online. We’ve all come across websites, blogs forums and YouTube channels where people freely share tips, advice, opinions and news, armed with little more than a laptop and bucket-loads of enthusiasm. But knowing which to trust, which to religiously check on and which to engage with can be difficult – there are endless blogs and websites all trying to do the same thing.
We’ve used our collective knowledge, endless hours on the web and knowing what makes us all tick when it comes to beauty regimes to save you endless trawling and have compiled this list of nothing less than the 10 best beauty blogs on the web. Period! We’ve not taken our selection process lightly, so you know all of these bloggers know their stuff – they’ve got the Mistry’s personal seal of approval!

On my last count I had around 6 little pots of Vaseline, I found a plethora of different varieties from the original Vaseline to the Limited Edition Red Lip Tint, I found them in handbags, make up bags, drawers, coat pockets, shoes, saucepans… ok the last two may have been a bit of an exaggeration but you get the gist!

Back in February Royal mail changed their laws for commercial businesses regarding sending “dangerous goods” abroad. This includes Aerosols, Perfumes, Nail varnishes and anything with a flame symbol on it. This obviously made it awkward for us to send but most importantly our overseas customers could no longer get fragrances etc sent to them. DPD have now offered us a road service so we can send perfumes to some EU countries for a great price. Bellow I have listed the countries we can send Perfumes, Fragrances and Aerosols too.
Do you have a family member who lives in Europe who you want to send a gift too but can’t? Or does a loved one who lives in Europe unable to buy their favourite perfume now? Tell them about Mistrys Online Pharmacy!
List of all EU countries we can send flamable products too –
- Czech Republic
- Greece (excluding Cyprus)
- Mainland Spain NOT the islands
- Republic of Ireland
The delivery times to these countries vary very slightly but are all delivered within 1 week! Great service from DPD.
