Online Shopping Experience with

Hi Everyone :pompom: Hope you all are enjoying the festive season. For me, the festivity comes with shopping :toothygrin: I have been splurging a lot on clothes as my near and dear ones are getting married and this is what is keeping me so busy these days. Okay, coming back to the post, it is an online shopping experience, what started as a fun activity has turned into a compulsive buying syndrome; every other day, I keep trying different online sites. This time, I shopped from, let me narrate my experience with this site:

Online experience with makeup shades

My Experience Shopping with

I was placing an order on 26th September, 2011, midnight and chose the option of COD, my order could not be completed as their was some internal server error.Β  I mailed them the very next day that my order could not be completed and I got a very prompt reply within 2 hours that it was due to the technical glitch and they told me that to compensate for that, if I placed the order again, they would be giving me a surprise gift :woot:


I was super excited and placed my order again, but again to my dismay, I received an email stating they do not have COD option in my city.

Not getting disheartened, I again placed the order on 6th October, I had ordered for just two things as I was checking their credibility and customer service, Lotus Herbals Honey Moist Cleanser and Lakme Fruit BlastMelon Melt Face Wash.

online shopping

I made the payment through debit card. I received the order confirmation on the same day. After two days, I had to mail them to know about the status of my stuff.Β  I got a prompt reply yet again and the next day, they sent me the order tracking number. Within 2 days, I received my courier and yes, they maintained their commitment. I received Ginni Clea Wet face wiping tissues as a free gift, which they had promised me :jalwa:

Also, all the stuff was carefully bubble wrapped and it came in a brown cardboard box.


Summarizing, the pros and cons of this site:

The Good Things about

  • Very prompt customer care which is the best part. Within two hours or so, I was getting replies from them.
  • They give freebies with a purchase of minimum of Rs. 300.
  • No shipping charges.
  • COD option (only for a few metro cities).

The Not-So-Good Things about

  • Though they mention COD option, but it might not be available in some of the cities (like it happened in my case).
  • Not a very large selection of products to choose from.
  • I had to mail them asking about my order status, whereas in some of the sites I have shopped with, they even tell that the product is being made ready for dispatch.

Will I Repurchase From

Yes, I will, because their customer service is extremely prompt and they do not levy any shipping charges even if I want to buy something small.

  16. i guess the initial shopping experience with all these sites would be fab coz they’d take care of every little thing to gain max customers. The thing is who survives and does great job in long run.

    1. oopsie…post pe comment karna toh bhul hi gayi :silly: :silly: :silly: :silly: hmm checking out the site now…..n i agree Rati….shuru mein every site tries to deliver d best. :haanji: :haanji: :haanji:

    2. cali if we really see things business wise, it’s only fashionandyou that has survived so far. two years, so much negative reviews and they are still going strong and working to improvise things. baaki toh abhi it’s a long game for rest of them. πŸ˜€

    3. nahi nahi Rati, there are a few websites with whom I have had the most irritating shopping experience, its been 7-8 days and I dont know where my stuff is and to top it all, one of these websites has the most horrendous customer care executive, everytime I call her up, either she does not pick up the call or is very rude to me :((

            1. kimi actually my initial experiences used to be good, so i was ordering from so many of them for fun sake but ab i wont :nababana: let me recieve my stuff then will surely do a dattyy post about them :smug:

    1. Bee……….yesh yesh…send my makeup kit jaldi jaldi too :pompom: :shying: :pompom: :pompom: :shying: :shying: :shying: :shying:

  17. but fashion and you has been for too long now na…..hmmmm….let’s c….when the samaan arrives…but I can’t really wait :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:

    1. Awessome jomol..earlier I thought you were bluffing….see what image you’ve created of yours..!! πŸ˜› he he..but now me believe and I hope you get all the stuffs safe and sound and in good ready with my :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali: for your haul post!! πŸ˜€
