Sooo, just looking at some Sisley skincare and there some on there that is about half price, new in box. Professional seller, multiple items. so not someone who has bought and regrets and selling it on.
Where does it come from? Is it out of date? Stolen? Fake?
Also, some people are selling stuff at the same price as you can get it new and fresh from John Lewis, why would anyone in their right mind buy this?
I’ve had some high end stuff off eBay and it’s been the genuine article. (I’ve had the product before and I kept my original to compare) They could be in the industry from magazines/bloggers/retailers/beauty counter old stock/back of a lorry, no idea! I got some ormitzgorovca (sp) exfoliator and masks. And a rose mask from a brand Ive now forgotten the name of but it was a 1/4 of the rrp
I was wondering this recently, bought some make up which is sold at M&S for a third of the price. It’s the real deal and the seller seems to sell lots of stuff regularly. I think it’s nicked, moral dilemma...
Sisley is lovely stuff, very high end and expensive! I have to confess that I am slightly addicted to their perfume. however, I don't think that it is often the target of fakers as it is a bit niche, unlike the more mainstream good brands. Having said that I wouldn't want to buy products that have been opened and used, but if it is unopened and a good price my fingers would be twitching over the BIN button on eBay.
