It’s quite a redundant statement saying I love shopping. Whether it is shopping for me, or going along with someone shopping, I love the experience. It’s quite an exhilarating experience and one that I enjoy time and again. Adding to my shopping array is a new e-shopping portal I came across that not only satisfies my shopping thirst but also provides custom shopping recommendations and solutions personalized for me – Welcome Aplava.com
The Story Behind Aplava.com
Aplava has its roots in sanskrit and means taking a bath to purify oneself. In a similar way Alplava.com wishes to gives its customers (read US) an experience of divine purity. The website has a wide range of products including Skincare, Hair care, Bath & Body, Make Up, Fragrance, Homecare and more.

What I really liked about Aplava?
I’m going to make it simple, as this post doesn’t have a pros and cons summary.
- What I really loved was the personalized selection of products customized based on your skin & hair concerns

- Easy to navigate & use website
- Wide range of brands to choose from
- Price drop alert is a great feature when you the products you want are a little expensive
I really wish I were in India so that I could shop with Aplava. Nonetheless, I’m going to put together a shopping list for when I’m back in India. My skin has become extra sensitive from when I came here. The long flight took its toll on my skin and it still hasn’t reverted to normal. I’ve been reading a lot about Sebamed and how their products are curated for sensitive skin. I’m quite keen to try out Sebamed Clear Face Care Gel and Toner. I’m also eyeing Sebamed Antidandruff Shampoo for my husband. If you haven’t read my previous posts I’m on the hunt for a good anti dandruff shampoo for my husband’s unruly crazy hair. One thing I definitely need is a sun repair mask and I saw they carried one from Thalgo, unfortunately that is a lot of money for a mask – but I’m going to do the smart thing and add to price drop alert section so that I can pick it up when there is a discount.
I can ramble some more on my to be shopping list – but I better spare you readers for once 😀
