Most of you might be knowing a little bit or more about this new beauty website, aplava.com but i didn’t.I recently came across this website and i must say the first impression was quite good.It provides you the products according to your skin type and concerns.It is different from other beauty related shopping websites as when you fill up your problems and concerns then it will show you the products that are best suited for your skin type and you will not have to go through every products and check its specifications which I guess is a plus point for this website.
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.
Just as the name suggests, Aplava wants to give its customers an experience of divine purity. Beauty is you!
As a startup beauty company, they strive to bring an unparalleled assortment of prestige brands, household names and niche, cult beauty brands, all on one site. Their professional team of Dermatologists and Beauty advisors has cherry picked brands across a broad range of product categories including Skincare, Hair care, Bath & Body, Make Up, Fragrance, Sun & Travel, Intimacy, Shaving, Candles and Aromatherapy, Mom & Baby & Home care. To make your experience worthwhile and easy, the team has developed a mechanism to advice and recommends products based on your skin type and skin concerns. Use the Personalized Beauty section on your profile page to get customized recommendation for your daily skin routine.
Unlike many other beauty retailers, they work directly with our manufacturers/authorized distributors to bring you over 5,000 products straight from the brands themselves. You can trust that anything you buy is 100% authentic, guaranteed.(copied from their website).
When you open the website, you will see a beauty personalized pop-up/image in the middle from where you can then go further and add your beauty type,concern or problems.Also, the front page will display the sale or offer that is going on that website.
Here is a small video of aplava.com that i made .Check this out before moving further!
When you click on the “start here” button ,it will take you to the next page where you have to give information about your skin type and as you will go further ,it will cover all the major beauty/hair related concerns you might have.
As i already said,the products recommended are on the basis of your concerns ,you can check out their skin care or hair care range and the best thing is you don’t have to worry about the product,they do this already.
Check out their website here:
The website also has a blog where they write beauty content.It also have a “ask the expert” section where you can ask directly from the dermatologists and beauty advisors.
They also have a loyalty program which again attracts me towards this website which is named as “Aplava Prestige”. When you shop something from there you earn some points and when you reach a minimum threshold of 500 points you can claim it as a multiple of 0.3.That means, for every 500 points you earn, you get Rs.150 off directly.There is a lot more to the loyalty program like special offers, inside news of the latest trends and a lot more!That is a really good scheme to try out!
You can find all of these on the front page.Right now,they are giving a free sample with every order.They ship free if the minimum amount is Rs.999 otherwise you have to pay Rs.50 extra.If you order using the cash on delivery option then also you have to pay Rs.50 extra but i don’t think this is a big amount.
Main focus on skin care!
The only disadvantage i see here is the product range is very less.It lack general beauty products that are available in the market and have some superior ones.But,i am not complaining because still they have a lot of products to choose from and you will probably choose one.
For the orders you place ,it takes at most a week to be delivered which is commendable.I ordered some products from aplava.com that are listed below ,the reviews are on the way!
