I love online shopping. I love shopping from stores too 😛 But online window shopping is what I do usually. It gives me atleast half the pleasure of window shopping in a beauty store or shopping mall. This time I decided order some products from http://medplusbeauty.com mainly for Matrix Biolage Anti-dandruff shampoo which is not usually available in stores and the matrix hair color in dark brown for my husband. I took an extra bonus by ordering lotus nutranite night cream for myself too 😛
The package arrived within 3 days. I have bought from medplusbeauty before once, but that time it had taken more than a week for the delivery. I always go for Cash on Delivery option because I am scared whether I will get cheated if I pay for something online. :-O I gave the shipping address as my office address and the person was standing outside the main gate and calling me to go and collect my packet. I requested him to come inside to the reception but he was not willing to 😦 When I order books from flipkart they always come inside the office and deliver. That’s one good thing about them. Even urbantouch and violet bag delivery boys come inside to hand over the products but only medplusbeauty delivery boy is so stubborn 😦
The packing was done in a cardboard box and I will not say that it’s attractive. But of course, it was a sturdy packing and they had put thermocol pieces inside to protect the products from breakage.
Inside the box and beneath the thermocol layer the products are tightly packed inside a bubble wrapper.
I was so excited to see the products outside so I didn’t bother to open the bubble wrapper neatly. I just tore it off! Speak of school kids getting excited with new buys! he he he.
So here are my new buys.
I never had any problem purchasing beauty and skin care products online but there are many people who got cheated with the poor customer care response in case they want an exchange or refund of the products. However, I like to purchase from Urbantouch.com since their packing is really attractive in strong attractive black boxes which I re-use to store my beauty products.
