    Hello guys, My Sheinside.com order arrived two days ago, so shipping to UK only took 5 or 6 days so that's good  I'm actually really impressed by my items, I wasn't expecting the quality to be good but it's just as good as any highstreet stores quality Having ordered from taobao many times before I have to say the items quality from sheinside surpasses what i've received from taobao so if they are taobao resellers they're selling the good stuff, which after agent fees and postage comes to quite a lot of money so I think sheinside is a good option if there's anything you really like on there especially if they're on sale. I wasn't expecting to say this but i'd definitely order from there again. The measurements on site are true so definitely measure yourself before purchasing because the items come up small ( i'm only 5'2 and i'm quite small and I had to order a size m-l in fitted items) for reference my measurements are 36-24-36
    Also apologies for the bad quality photos I need a new phone and sorry about the mess in the background in the middle of moving house.
    The order came in a plastic bag parcel and each item was individually sealed in a sheinside zip lock bag with tags:


    Here are the reviews on the items I received:
    No.1 the rose dress: http://www.sheinside.com/White-Sleeveless-Bandeau-Floral-Tank-Dress-p-113393-cat-1727.html


    5/5 This is my favourite of the order and it fits perfectly, I got this in a size M. The material is a satin type of material so it's shiny and you could wear it casual or formal with the right accessories. It's quite short in length i'm 5'2 and it's not too short but if you're taller check the measurement onsite. It's fully lined and has under netting to make it poofy.
    No 2: red sunflower lace dress: (sold out right now)



    5/5 another great quality dress, no faults or loose threads, fully length lining, beautiful lace material. I included two pics, one of how it's meant to be worn and one of me wearing it back to front because I actually prefer the zip at the front xD belt came with it.
    No 3: Shirt : http://www.sheinside.com/Beige-Long-Sleeve-Birds-Print-Chiffon-Blouse-p-111955-cat-1733.html


    4.5/4 Print is gorgeous lots of birds and high detail. I took off .5 for some loose threads. 
    No4: black crochet top: http://www.sheinside.com/Black-Long-Sleeve-Hollow-Crochet-Lace-Blouse-p-113351-cat-1733.html


    5/5 This wasn't showing up properly on me so I took a pic off me. good quality nice pattern a good versatile piece. Lots of pics of girls wearing it on site. True to size and picture 

    Hope this review was helpful

    Update on my Sheinside order: So far it's taken 9 days to process even though it says 5-7 days on their website and I chatted with customer service who were helpful enough and said they'd send it out asap. But it still isn't shipped today after messaging them yesterday.So.. so far not that impressed xD but my order was free due to the competition so maybe they put it further down in importance.. which still isn't fair. Hopefully they ship it soon as shipping takes 2 weeks. So if you're looking to order from them expect a 3-4 week waiting time.

    Hi everyone~
    I know sheinside.com has a pretty bad reputation but I won one of their competitions and won $100 to spend so i'm not complaining xD I got 4 things with my prize and I thought this would be a good opportunity to review them as a lot of people seem curious on whether their quality is really bad including myself. I've never shopped from there before so this will be my first impression of them. My order should get here in around 2 weeks so we'll see if it takes longer and how reliable their shipping is.
    These are what I ordered. I went for things that had pics of real people wearing them from lookbook because then I can see how they look in real life.

  5. xkatxrinax added a post in a topic: Can braces help with uneven jaw?   

    I have tmj disorder and my jaw pops every time I open it wide and when I eat very chewy foods. It doesn't hurt all the time only if I chew something too hard and it clicks out of place or if I sleep on it funny. The popping doesn't hurt for me. I would be VERY wary about getting braces without seeing an orthodontist who is highly trained in tmj problems. Getting braces with an uneven jaw can make it 100 times worse and cause agonizing pain and lead to extensive surgery. The procedure for getting braces with an uneven jaw and tmj is to first have a special jaw aligning plate( like a mouth guard) fitted for your mouth that you wear for a year or two which will push your jaw into the correct alignment and then you get braces to match up your teeth.
    I have a big overbite and bunny teeth at the front, but after seeing a specialist for tmj I decided i'd much rather live with my teeth and not risk making my tmj any worse because the success rate for braces correcting tmj and an uneven jaw is quite hit an miss about 50%. Also my teeth make me who I am and i've grown to quite like them over the years. I know for a fact if braces straightened them I wouldn't be able to chew at all due to the way my jaw sits.
    So ya i'd advise you to seek out a tmj specialized orthadontist and see what they say for you

    Well... I was just snooping through this topic when my boyfriend looked over my shoulder and asked "what's an ulzzang?" So I showed him pictures to which he said "Ewww they're so unattractive they look like creepy children" xD 
    I personally think some can be pretty, but very few are naturally pretty and wear too much make up which I dislike. If they do have the natural beauty then I think they can be very beautiful. But I do kind of agree with my boyfriend xD

    My Taobao order arrived yesterday and everything was 100% perfect, true to stock photos, good quality.. actually i'm amazed at the quality for once xD and all correct colours etc. I can take photos of the actual items if anyone wants them The shoes are amazinggg so comfortable to wear, and the skirt was actually really surprising as it's a lovely thick material with a lovely pattern in the material and it's a good length for once actually looks better in real than in the stock photo xD Oh and the jumper/sweater is really really thick good for the incoming snow here

    @STEPHOO--I personally prefer the purple one, I find the blue one looks a little cheap and I much prefer the classier look of the purple

    I use pruany as they are one of the cheapest and i've ordered with them 3 times and they're always reliable. Their fees are 8% of the item cost + local delivery which usually doesn't amount to much. They also have many shipping options and a good EMS discount.

    Nope I haven't, to be honest i'm not that into the natural thing even though I know it's better for you.. but sometimes i'm sceptical xD but afterrrr so long battling with my bad dry skin I gave the coconut oil a try and it's worked wonders, getting so many compliments on my skin quality since (it's only been 2 weeks). So I've been thinking of trying a natural mask and face scrub too to see if they work better. I've heard that a sugar scrub is one of the best exfoliators.... i'll let you know how it goes when I try them if you'd like x)

    My skin has been really dry the past few years and my forehead gets very scaly and bumpy and it's horrible, it's also very sensitive. I've tried so many products and methods to  try to fix my skin and spent soooo much money. But what i've found now that really works and is great for my skin is just pure coconut oil it's great because it's natural so it doesn't irritate dry sensitive skin and it's full of natural proteins the renew your skin back to health. Also it's cheap and you can use it as a hair mask as well or for cooking so it's really handy to have x) You only need a tiny bit and it protects your skin for days. My skin is finally going back to being healthy and it feels so soft now It also has anti aging properties
    Also as the above post has stated avoid anything with alcohol! it ruins your skin >__< so check the ingredients of what you're putting on your face.
