My Shopping Experience With

As online shopping for beauty and personal care products has increased tremendously over the last few years in India,this industry has seen a growth of many companies that offer and promise to deliver authentic and quality products to customers but only a few are able to live up to their claims fully.I recently came across a website named Aplava which is a startup online beauty products company that offers some of the best makeup products along with other personal care products on their website and has a professional team of dermatologist and beauty advisers.Also, they work directly with manufacturers/distributors to bring you over 5000 products straight from the brands themselves with 100% guarantee of delivering original and authentic products. 

My Experience  

Firstly I think that the appearance of the website is very clean and appealing.It is easy to navigate and explore each category.The competition is getting tougher day by day between online shopping sites.What makes unique is that as soon as you open their website,the first thing that pops up is a box that prompts you to create your own beauty profile and based on the information provided by you the site recommends the products that will be beneficial for your skin and hair type in particular.Now I'm really impressed with the fact that process of creating our beauty profile just doesn't end very rapidly with only 2-3 questions but in fact, it involves a deep study of your skin and hair.To give you an idea of how it works,the process starts with answering questions relating to our skin type first.So if suppose you click on oily skin type,the subsequent questions that follow are -

How oily is your skin type ? (oily after waking up in the morning,oily after work,oily all over,only oily on T-zone)
Are you prone to Acne ? What type of Acne ? (Red Boils,Big painful Boils,Only blackheads/whiteheads,Only scars now)

Do you have pigmentation issues ?
Do you have Freckles,Melasma,Post inflammatory hyperpigmentation,Solar spots,Lack of glow ? (And if you don't know what these conditions are,they show an image of what each condition looks like on skin so you can easily detect and select an issue that you're suffering from)
Do you have wrinkle problem ? What kind of activities do you do in a day ? Do you have sweating tendencies ?
How would you describe your skin tone ? Which part of your body is more exposed to the sun ?

And after answering all these skin related questions,the next part covers the details about your hairs which includes answering questions relating to hair problems.One more thing I like about creating this personalised beauty profile is when you answer any question by clicking on any of the options provided,they explain,below,the reasons due to which you might be facing that particular problem (I think it's very informative).Now whenever you're browsing through you can click on the tab "Recommended for me"  under any category to view the products based on your personalised beauty profile.

After signing up and creating my beauty profile I browsed through their website and was amazed to see that they house many luxury brands like Butter London,Rodial,Dr.Lipp,Bottega Di Lungavita,Pangea organics and so many other brands that I haven't seen on any other website in India.Also, they offer regular discounts on a majority of brands which is great.I placed my order on the website and was confirmed with an email immediately.My order was scheduled to arrive after 7-8 days of placing but it came 2 days early and that's amazing.All the products came nicely bubble wrapped in a cardboard packaging with authentic aplava badge. Now coming to the negative side, It offers free shipping over Rs.999/- and sometimes the site becomes bit slow while browsing but overall I'd a really nice shopping experience on aplava and will definitely shop more in future. Currently, they are running a special summer offer discount of 10% store wide on all products. Do check out their website ( Click here ).
