best online stores in India


Hi guys, so I am finally back after being MIA for a long. A lot has happened to me and my life has completely changed since my last post. I am not in a state to discuss about it in this post. Some of you might know it but for the rest I will try to talk about it in a life update post. Today, I wanted to share my experience of an recent online purchase from a new online store in the block named This review was long due since I made my purchase in late June. So, without further ado let me quickly share my views on this website and show you what I got from there.

Aplava derives its name from sanskrit origins. Aplava (pronounced “AAp luv” in original sanskrit) means taking a bath to purify oneself. It’s an ablution process of cleansing oneself. is a startup online beauty store which brings to you the best quality Indian and and international brands together. They have stocked almost everything from skincare to babycare. The best thing about this site is that they work directly with the manufacturers or authentic distributors which guarantees you get the authentic product every time you shop. Another thing that I liked about this site is that you get recommendations on products that suits your requirements. These recommendations are based on your Beauty Score that you are asked to calculate at the time you register. 

What is My Beauty Score?

My Beauty Score is nothing but a questionnaire that you are asked to fill up at the time you register for Aplava. This questionnaire includes a few questions that helps the team to understand your beauty needs or skin concerns and recommend the best products on your search. I found my Beauty Score is 48% which is pretty low 🙁

My experience: 
On June 27th I made my very first purchase from I decided to get a mix of makeup and skincare products. I got the MeMeMe Flawless Concealer that I always wanted in my life along with the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Unapologetic, the Street Wear Color Rich Ultra Moist Lip Color in Pink Persuasion  and Just Herbs Almond Complexion Face PackI received the my products on 4th of July which is pretty fast for my address. I am quite satisfied with the delivery. The package arrived safely with all the products in excellent condition. The products were individually bubble wrapped. I did not have any issue with the shipping or with the products so I can’t really talk about the return or refund issues.

They give you an opportunity to ask the group of experts (including beauty experts and dermatologists) if you have any query. The Beauty Score thing totally worked for me as the products that were recommended for me were absolutely appropriate. The list of products is not much but I have to acknowledge that the catalogue they offer and the quality of brands as well as the products is way too rich despite them being a startup venture. 

Things That I Liked about

  • Over 3000 products from Indian and international brands to choose from. 
  • Product recommendation based on your need and concern by select experts. 
  • A chance to accumulate points from every product you purchase and redeem them. 
  • Free shipping over 1500 INR.
  • 10 days free return. 
  • 24×7 customer care service.
  • Easy navigation. 

Overall, I really liked this website. My experience with Aplava was very satisfactory. I wish to shop more often in future. I would like them to introduce more brands both high-end and drugstore soon. I hope you found this post helpful for your next shopping. Write down your favourite website for international beauty products. I will be back again with some new posts soon. Till then be safe and keep smiling!

Disclaimer: Sponsored post but my opinion is 100% honest as usual. 

Hey lovelies, how are you all? If you follow me on Facebook (if you don’t then do it now!), you would know that my hard disk was paining me so much resulting in no photo editing, no storage for documents and a series of haphazard situations. But, my boyfriend finally fixed the problem and now it’s all fine. This means I will be regular with posting new blog posts. Let’s see!

Today, I will be sharing with you a long overdue review of an online store named I think most of you would be familiar with this name. With a huge stock of clothes, accessories, cosmetics and household goods, Limeroad is surely on a par with the other leading online shopping sites. The best thing about Limeroad is that you can create your own fashion ensemble in their ‘Scrapbook’ sections and earn some LR Credits that can be redeemed while you buy something from them. Each credit is equivalent to one rupee. Isn’t that amazing?

My Shopping Experience with

I have shopped four times from them. My first order was a pair of brown wayfarer sunglasses that I am totally in love with. My first experience with them was really nice. I got the product exactly on time without any dispatch hassles. The packaging was really sturdy. You know how delicate sunglasses are! They need to be packed with proper care and Limeroad had looked after that. After that I bought another pair of blue aviators for my sister and again it was a pleasant experience. Recently (read 4 months ago) I bought two tops from them. One for me and the other for my sister. Here is a picture- 

My Shopping Experience with

How to create Scrapbooks? 

Creating look-book in the Scrapbook section is the most interesting part to me. I love dress-up games so when I am not shopping with Limeroad, I like to create looks that would reflect my style. It’s really very easy to create scrapbooks on Limeroad. You need to click on the ‘Scrapbook’ tab on the right of the page and then choose a template and add items. After you save the scrapbook you can see your LR Credits increase. These scrapbooks can be shared with others so that they know about your taste and get inspired. 

I am listing up a few things that I like about Limeroad-

  • Over a million styles, numerous brands and products at one place. 
  • Easy navigation.
  • Timely dispatch.
  • Cash on Delivery available.
  • Free shipping over Rs. 300
  • Supportive customer service. 
  • Secure packaging. 
  • Facility to earn points through creating scrapbooks. 

They also have a mobile app but I never found it to be enough helpful. I would rather prefer their website for shopping.

I hope this post is helpful for all of you who love online shopping. Would you give this site a try? What is your all time favourite online store? Let me know in the comments. As I said earlier, I am trying to be more regular with posting. So, yo may expect a new post mid-week. Till then be safe and keep smiling!
