US-based online cosmetic retailer SkinStore launched its China website (www.skinstorechina.com) in Hangzhou last week. A spokesperson said that prices will be 70% of standard boutique prices. SkinStore will also open its first experience store in Hangzhou this year, and plans to partner with e-commerce website Taobao and become a retailer on its B2C Taobao Mall.
Currently, the website ships orders directly from the US, requiring 7-9 working days for delivery after a customer places an order. Shipping costs USD 22 for packages less than one pound, with free shipping for orders of RMB 1,200 or more.
