Fake Cosmetics? Dare to Use?

Why are counterfeit cosmetics and beauty products so dangerous?
v  Fake cosmetics are made cheaply with no regard for safety standards put forth by the health and beauty industries.
v  Fake cosmetics & perfumes contain illegal substances [e.g. urine and antifreeze] that can cause serious allergic reactions.
v  Counterfeit hair straightening devices and other electronics have been known to malfunction and even explode.

How to spot fake cosmetics:

v  Look for flimsy packaging. If the cellophane is messy or moving around the box, that's a sure sign the perfume's probably a fake.
v  Watch for excess glue or adhesive tape. If there is a lot of tape or glue inside the perfume box or on the exterior of the packaging, the perfume is probably a fraud.
v  Examine barcodes. Barcodes should be at the bottom of the perfume box. If you see that they are the side of the box, you should definitely be suspicious.
v  Be wary of flea markets, home shopping parties, street vendors and unauthorized websites. Many sell fake or counterfeit products.
v  Watch the salesman. Most of the time the real product is in the front line on the shelf, while the fakes ones are behind it.
v  When online, buy from authentic websites. If there are spelling/grammar mistakes, unprofessional looking designs or a contact form without a legitimate address and phone number, proceed with caution.

Shocking? We think so too.
