Let's welcome Medplusbeauty.com

I wasn't able to post regularly in the last couple of days. it was chiefly because we had the Saraswati Puja which is almost a desi equivalent to Valentine's Day in Bengal. Well, I didn't go on a date, but spent time running around visiting friends and peers etc. Then, yesterday, I attended a wedding. All dolled up! ok, photos coming soon.

I the mean time, I shopped again. This time from medplusbeauty.com.



The experience: 

The likes

1 Online shopping by this time is becoming familiar to us, so what medplusbeauty is, needs no special introduction. But what makes this site special is the wide array of cosmetics and beauty products. Everything is so systematically arranged.

2 Apart from the brands, what caught my attention was the fact that I found so many products from brands like Bourjois which I did not even know, were available in India. Everything has a lucrative discount say for example, the NYX long pencils only for around 165 bucks!! and all. I did not expect so much of discount.

3 They payment method is usual and they have even COD for some of the cities as of now.

4 The delivery is fast enough. Mine reached in almost three working days. And my goodies were nicely nestled in a good packing.

5  Every time you shop from them, you get some points which you can redeem of elective gift items which may act as an incentive to shop again




The dislikes:

1 One of the things which bugged me a bit, although it's not a major con is the fact, I got a confirmation of my order,but there was no confirmation of my shipping. After a few days, I mailed them requesting information about my order and they mailed me my tracking number. On tracking it I found the package was to reach me on that very day.
Now, my thought is that, since they do have the tracking number, letting us know with a confirmation of the shipping is more helpful. Suppose I am not home, or nobody is home to receive it what happens? I may not have the cash ready at hand if we don't know it beforehand.

2 Another issue I have is, they have this option with which, once you log in, you can track your order. Every time I tried to track my order status, it said it was delivered. I tried this on the morrow of the day on which I placed the order.

3 No COD in my city. Having no credit card and the type of debit card that cannot be used online, I cannot shop unless there is the COD. Hope things turn around to my glee and my father's dismay :P

OK, I guess the dislike section has become too long, but these are really no major cons for me. It's the thing I FEEL medplusbeauty.com could do better with, since they have really a great selection of stuff.



Do I recommend? Yes! I honestly do. I would say in terms of selection and discounts it IS a winner!

Shall I shop again? I would once they start Cash on delivery in Kolkata. I located stuff that can't be found otherwise everywhere.

What are your thoughts?  agree or disagree?

PS I located some major sales etc and got hold a couple of products from TBS. Would share them tomorrow. Stay tuned

I was given a shopping voucher from the site. But that has not really affected my opinion.

    1. That's too bad! Isn't that the same thing happened to you with another website? IMO the courier guys might be at fault. Last two times you know, the courier guys let my packages in our parking lot instead of bringing it to our doors. Weird!

    2. Well incidents of delay and all has definitely happened, but never like this, taht both medplucbeauty and dtdc hyd called me n said parcel has been delivered, where as dtdc ranchi branch saying we will deliver today, How two thing are possible?

    3. I guess then there might be problem with the local DTDC. They might have been sending the wrong info. So, I would suggest you to be careful about the local guys now.
