I was looking for volumizing shampoos and to my delight I was happy to find the Kerastase range at Purplle.com. I though I’d review this site as well!
What I Hauled
OPI : Nail Polish : Mrs. O’Leary’s BBQ (burgundy shade)
Bath and Body Works : Body Lotion : Into The Wild
Kerastase : Shampoo : Bain Volumactive
They have a very large product range and a number of brands from low cost to high end. I’ve mentioned a couple of brands that standout in the Checklist below. It’s an all-round good site to buy make up, skincare and hair products.
I don’t find the design of the site particularly appealing. I’m also quite annoyed with the way they display products where every shade (or variant) is an individual product rather than being clubbed with the main product itself. Please use better e-commerce techniques!! You have to scroll for ages and find the product you want. The ‘out of stock’ buttons also need to look different from the ‘add to kart’ ones. You end up picking something only to realise that its ‘out of stock’ instead.
Service wise, the website is great. The shampoo and body lotion were dispatched in 2-3 days while the nail polish took longer and was sent separately. They use Aramex for delivery which has so far been very reliable for me. You get the delivery in 2-3 days if you live in a major city. Might require upto 5 depending on your location. You also get notification emails when they’ve dispatched which helps.
I love their service but I wish the website was more usable. Also, this might be just me but, purplle is really hard to remember! I kept googling purpelle and wondered where the site had disappeared! :p
