There are fake products available for nearly all high-end cosmetics and perfume brands out in the local markets and even online for that matter. Besides cheating you with wrong products, these fake products also cause severe damage to your skin. This is why, we're here with a few things to keep in mind when you need to figure out if the cosmetic product you're buying is fake or original.
- Know your brand's labelling: This is the most important thing to know if you want to identify the difference between real and fake products. It's all in the packaging. The ones who make fake products often use colours, font type and artwork that is similar to the original products. Although, there usually are quite a few visible differences in the logo, colour, font or the size of the product. Hence, make sure you know your brand well and also its packaging so that you can easily spot the difference.
- Be a vigilant consumer of your brand: Always buy your products from an authorized seller, retail or online as it will ensure that you're making the right buy with a proper receipt. You need to be smart and know that you aren't falling for the fake products that are available out in the market which are easily sold at huge discounts and tagged as "imported products"
- Know the brand packaging: As much as the brand labelling is important to notice, so is the packaging. The high-quality sturdy packaging that stays intact throughout the time you use the product than the fake ones that come off easily. Some brands even make sure to keep their authenticity intact by putting a serial number on the website/app or even have a scanning barcode.
Make sure you pick on these little things before you actually make the wrong cosmetic buy or else you'll have to face the consequences of what it does to your skin.
