Hello Everyone!

Just like most of the girls, I am also a huge fan of Online Shopping! Be it grocery, clothes, shoes or cosmetics..they are all ordered while I am sitting on my couch :)
There are several benefits of online shopping especially the discounts and the price difference. and not to mention, you are saved from all the tiring walks with mall full of people.

The only thing that I miss when trying to search for some cosmetics are the recommendations by the experts at the counter, based on my skin type and my requirement. And then I came across ! To know what is and how is it, please keep reading further :)

First Impression:

  • We have so many cosmetics/skincare websites but what makes Aplava different is their ' Beauty Personalised'.

My Experience With Aplava:

I received my order in within 5 business days which is good. All the products were neatly bubble wrapped and assembles in a sturdy carton box. They offered a huge range of International brands along with the known ones and I could see amazing collection and discounts for best sunscreen lotion and dark circle creams !. Since I was using the website for the first time, I ordered a few basics:
  Maybelline Volume Express Mascara
  O3+ Mlk Scrub
  Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Sultry
  Coloressence Pearl Finish Eye Shade

Overall Thoughts:

Overall, I quite liked the website and had a good experience. The only thing which bothered me a little that although they have a lot of International Brands, few of the known ones are missing. However since its a new site, I would prefer waiting for sometime! With all their unique and amazing features, they are definitely a must try.

Hope you liked the post. Do let me know if you want me to review any of the products or your experience with

Until Then...
