My experience with the website:
First of all, Woohoo for one more online beauty store in India! Last year, we had none (I have trust issues so ya, it was none for me), but now we have quite a few online stores selling all the girly things! VioletBag.com is my first, and I think it's going to make my life a bit more convenient OR it's going to make me more lazy- depends on how you look at it.
The name "VioletBag" is definitely catchy. They could have named it PinkBag or GreenBag or PeachBag, but now we know why they didn't...they sound like vegetable sacks OR recycle bags, no? VioletBag sounds more flowery & girly & unisex. Ok that's a weird mix, but you know what I mean.
The website is very neat & easy to browse through- clickety click, Add To Bag, Review & Order...Pay....Done! My order was processed immediately after being placed and I received it within 3 days. The box was filled with thermocol and the products were all sealed & brand new.
I do wish they had more brands (as it is, we beauty bloggers are a demanding bunch) but hey, it's new so we need to give it some time to grow.
What I ordered:
My skin needed some special attention, so I decided to pick out some Pond's skincare products:
- Pond's Age Miracle Advanced Resurfacing Microdermabrasion Kit, Rs.687/- (MRP: Rs.739/-)
- Pond's White Beauty Blemish Prevention UV Cream, Rs.278/- (MRP: Rs.299/-)
I have yet to try the Microdermabrasion Kit, but I'm really liking the Blemish Prevention UV Cream so far.
Overall, I am very satisfied with VioletBag.com, mainly because of the discounts they offer + Cash On Delivery payment option. I will definitely be shopping from the website again. Why should I shop at my supermarket if I have to pay full price? ;)
