Octer: The Online Shopping Mall, shopping, octer

I am a self confessed shopaholic.  That film, 'Confessions of a Shopaholic', that could have been written about me. Isla Fisher eat your heart out!

Like most girls, I love nothing more than window shopping online and count Net-A-Porter, Selfridges and ASOS as firm friends. Not many weeks pass by, without a little window actual online dabbling.

Wonderful sites to marvel at, lust after and ever-growing expensive wishlists, more often than not resulting in a cheeky purchase. Or 2. Then you justify said purchase with 'Oh, I need it to review' or the equally unconvincing (when talking to partner) 'Oh, this old thing, I was sent it for the blog'.

Quite recently, I came across a fabulous concept from Octer. Their aim is 'to make online shopping as easy as possible'. 200 of the biggest UK stores and 8,000 brands to choose from. All to help consumers to find the right product, at the best price. 

If like me, you like to shop, this site will become your new best friend. Download the app to share, save and compare products all with a single tap. Shop by department or shop by store. This is a handy bit of kit!

For instance, in this case I was searching for powder.  I clicked on 'Beauty' and then the 'powder' tab and the site brought up everything available. I clicked on Nars Powder (Mountain - completely the wrong shade, just as an example) and it sent me to Net-A-Porter's website.

If this was something I still didn't want to purchase, Octer then suggests alternatives. Of course you then click on the right product and it will take you to the website offering the best value. Genius!

After perusing for what seemed like hours, I decided to pick up a couple of items that had been on my 'to buy list' for ages! The Estee Edit; Estee Lauder's White Mud Exfoliating Scrub and Mask (£28) and Clarins' Fix Make-Up (£24).

The site was so easy to use and both items arrived only a couple of days later from Selfridges.  I am yet to use either, however after rigorous testing, I will be sure to let you guys know if they're worth trying.  If you're a little obsessed with online shopping, I urge you to give Octer a try. Make that cup of coffee/pour that glass of Pinot and take some down-time. Now then where did I put that credit card?!?

Have you already tried this site? What do you think? Is it convenient or not something you would use?
