My Beauty Shopping Experience with APLAVA!

Hello beauties,

My Beauty Shopping Experience with APLAVA!
My Beauty Shopping Experience with APLAVA!

Being a beauty junkie, I am always on a look to buy new products.  I would love to go shopping but definitely not in this heat. Also it’s practically impossible for me, considering that I work 5 days a week. I love online shopping more than offline. That’s because online beauty products are easily available and you don’t have to travel from one shop to another. I have noticed that we have very few online beauty shopping websites in India. There were many choices when I started blogging but now there are just 2 or 3 websites. Today, I want to reveal this new online beauty shopping website called “APLAVA”. For the one who is curious to know what APLAVA means? Aplava (pronounced “AAp luv” in original sanskrit) means taking a bath to purify oneself. It’s an ablution process of cleansing oneself. Just as the name suggests, Aplava wants to give its customers an experience of divine purity. Beauty is you! Aplava has this unique blend of some household and foreign brands. If you ask me what struck me to buy from this website? It will be definitely due to some fresh brands like Bodyography, Natio, Kronokare , Mememe, Wild Earth etc.

My Experience with Aplava.com –

I ordered for three products from Aplava.com and I received my order within 4 days i.e I ordered on Monday and received it on Thursday. I believe that’s Not bad at all! I was expecting it to come within 7-8 days because that’s what the shipment message said. However, everything came pretty fast and all the products were cutely packed in a box. I also received a coupon code for my next order. There was no damage whatsoever with my order. Also, they had kept me updated by sending sms about my shipment. I was really confused as to what to pick from the whole range. Because my mind said that I should try new brands and my heart said ‘Ohhhh, you always wanted that Revlon highlighting palette.’ I just gave in and bought the Revlon highlighting palette in Rose Glow 020, Faces Ultimate Pro lipstick in Read my lip 07 (badly wanted) and the L’Oreal Magique Compact Powder G2. I checked the expiry and if they were genuine. They were all genuine products with nowhere near to expiry. Now I am sure to go again and again to the website to play with the new brands. Also they have great offers running always. Some brownie points about Aplava is that they send a complimentary sample with every order which is really cool. They offer free shipping over orders above 999. There is so much to like about this website, here I am talking about the personalised beauty advice. We all are different skintypes and also have different skincolor. We always try to find a blogger of our complexion online to know what would suit us? With Aplava’s beauty experts you can take a test and find out what will suit your needs and get them delivered at your doorstep. Sounds easy peasy? Isn’t it? I have so many girlfriends and sometimes its so difficult to figure out what to gift a friend? Once I gifted a lipstick to a friend and she told me she already had that shade. Soooo…. I made a boo-boo! I am so glad Aplava came up with a concept of Giftcards. Now you can gift your mother, sister, girlfriend just with what they want without exactly knowing what they want? Haha.. If you know what I mean? They have giftcards ranging from 500 to 10,000. Oh by the way, they are running some amazing offers on lip-balms online. I am a sucker for lip-balms and I finish it faster than my lipsticks. With so many options you can spoil yourself.

Recommendation: –  To sum it up, I am truly happy and it was a great shopping experience with Aplava. I am soon going to order some more from the website. I think you should totally checkout this website if you like trying new brands and also for the offers.  I couldn’t find any Con. I just want them to get all the drugstore brands like Colorbar, Make Up revolution, Nyx etc so that it becomes easy for us to buy everything under one roof.

Did you shop from Aplava yet? What are you planning to haul?

Love,

Hello cupcakes,

PREM HENNA SO SILK SHAMPOO REVIEW

I am experimenting with new skincare and hair care products these days.  I get too bored trying the same products again and again. I know I need to stick to the products which suits me and I always come back to it. However, life of a beauty blogger is dynamic, trying and testing is the part and parcel of our lives. Well, coming back to this shampoo.  I and my mom have been trying this shampoo simultaneously from quite some time and here is my word. I didn’t wanted to rush with this review as I wanted to see how it fares on my color treated hair and my mom’s virgin hair.

Packaging – As you can see it comes in the sachet form which makes it travel friendly. The bright yellow packaging is attractive looking. However, I always prefer my shampoo in the form of a big bottle when home. Since I have long tresses I need 3 sachets to wash my hair thoroughly.

My Experience with the So Silk Shampoo

My Mother took the initial step of using this shampoo as she loves herbal products. Since she has virgin hair all herbal and chemical free products suit her. She always swears by her Nyle shampoo and was hesitant to try this shampoo. As she is not a person who experiments a lot with her hair (unlike Me 😛 ) So after she agreed to try this, she mentioned that when she went to her yoga classes people kept asking her if she have straighten her hair. Mind you, she already have straight her with a little waviness. But after using this shampoo her hair has become even more straight, soft, smooth and shinier. She skipped using a conditioner to check if this shampoo is working for her. Voila! It did.. It was this shampoo which cleansed the hair very well and kept the tresses soft and healthier. It has a mild flowery smell which stays for some time. However, she mentions that her hair fall remains the same. Also we both prefer shampoo bottles over sachets because of our hereditary long hair scenes. This shampoo didn’t worked too well for my color treated hair. I have ombre hair and the ends need a lot of conditioner. So I have to use a color care shampoo and conditioner. Using this shampoo makes my ends dry and frizzy. Overall, I would say this shampoo is great for virgin hair but if you have chemically treated hair so just stay away.
