Hi, there! So as you know, I like shopping through US websites. Unfortunately, most of them doesn't ship to freight forwarding companies like shippingcart.com, myus.com and my-shoppingbox.com. If you're still reluctant or doesn't know the process of using freight forwarders for international orders, I've made separate blogs about them.You may check the links down below! Any way, I'm very pleased that Wet N' Wild ships to warehouse addresses so wherever you are in the world, you can shop straight from the manufacturer.

One of the best things about Wet n' Wild is the fact that they frequently do sales but of course, sales are harder to miss during holidays and sale seasons. I highly recommend to subscribe on their mailing list to get first dibs on new launches and coupons/promotions.
The shop has lower threshold for free shipping. By purchasing $25 worth of items, you already get free shipping for U.S. orders. Shipping normally takes up to a week depending on the address. If you prefer rush shipping, you may do so with an additional charge of $15.99 for 2-day shipping and $25.99 for next-day shipping. I always prefer the more economical option so I took the free shipping.
They offer makeup freebies! Most of the time, the shop give out makeups in full-size. While on your cart, a pop-up box normally appears and you just have the option to add to cart the item you wish to come with your haul.
They offer multiple payment methods. You can pay with any major credit/debit cards, amazonpay and afterpay where you can pay in portions (for U.S. customers only) or the most convenient for me is the Paypal where I store my cards.
In terms of makeup variations, Wet n' Wild has everything to offer from base makeup to tools. You'll never run out of stuff to buy. I'm just hesitant to purchase makeup items because knowing the brand, their items are either a hit or a miss. I'd rather drop by at kiosks or boutiques to test their products' pigmentation, finish and longevity.
The website is pleasing to the eyes but sometimes non-mobile responsive. I don't have any issues browsing through desktop though I had a hard time shopping through my phone especially when I was carting items, I couldn't find the exit button to return to the shop. I probably did it during maintenance but either way, I hope I don't encounter the same issue next time.
I placed my order last October 16, 2019 and I received an e-mail confirmation right away saying that they received my order. I keep my receipts and stuff for records but I decided not to post it here for security purposes. Wet N Wild shipped my order October 19, 2019 so that was three days after I placed my order. I'm pretty sure they received tons of orders that particular day so I was still glad they shipped my items pretty quick on a sale season. Normally on other shops, it may take to up to a week before my items leave the warehouse.
On October 25, 2019, I received an e-mail notification from my-shoppingbox.com that a parcel has reached my suite. All I have to do is pay and authorized the shipment and the courier will just have the order shipped to me. Since I opted for the sea cargo (slower but cheaper mode of shipping), I had to wait until December 07, 2018 before I get my items delivered to my doorstep. That's pretty fast because I'm expecting 2 months from the day of authorization to get it.
So there, I received my orders in the best condition. - no dents, marks, damages or anything. I checked my receipt and I got everything complete. My items has been handled and packed well so kudos!
Overall, it was a pleasure doing a transaction from the website. The overall business is fast and easy since we're only talking about the transaction that transpired from the day I ordered up to the day it was delivered on the warehouse. It was exactly 9 days - could be less because freight forwarders still process and check the items before posting on the website and notifying the customers.
