Am sure most of you must be familiar with Limeroad.com.
They have attractive collection of printed sling bags and footware. Every time I pick up products and add to my basket, something or the other comes up and I never complete my purchase!
When I was asked to review their site, I got pretty excited! I ordered a green hand bag from them and in this post; I am going to write about my shopping experience with Limeroad.com.
First of all, let me start by telling you all how much attractive I find their site’s layout to be! I just love the green and white combo! It looks fresh.
Registration is easy as you can link your facebook account with it or simply create an account using your mail ID.
There is easy navigation menu that takes you to their various segments i.e., clothing, accessories, footware, handbags etc. I did not face any difficulty while browsing through their store.
Finally when I saw this cute leatherette handbag in a gorgeous green color, I could not wait to get it in my hands! It was priced at Rs. 1,699/- but as the material and finish seemed decent, I bought it.
After two days of my purchase, since I did not get any email notification, I decided to log in and check the status.
When I logged in, I saw that the same handbag was priced at Rs. 1200/-. They were having some offer wherein they were giving the very same handbag for 1200/- just two days after my purchase! Since I did not spend “my” money, I did not feel the pinch. But if I had shelled out my money, I would have felt as if I bought a product meant for clearance sale!
[On the bright side, if you like this product, you can get it at a much lesser price now from Limeroad!]
I ordered my handbag on Friday evening and I received it on the ensuing Wednesday. The bag was shipped through Delhivery. The product was well packed.
Though the product seemed pretty decent, I did not feel that it is worth the 1600/- I paid. The product felt little soggy. It felt like the way how our leather bags feel after a day of street shopping in the sun! But after an hour or so, the material seemed to firm up a little. But this, added with the discount incident made me feel that the product was priced higher than its worth. In my opinion, I would pay Rs. 1000/- for this bag. I will update you all after few weeks about its durability.
But apart from this, I really liked the handbag. The color combo was perfect and the inner lining was firm and decent looking. The zippers were fine and I am sure this will be a perfect partner for the summers!
*They don’t have all the most sought after brands in their makeup and beauty segment
*Simple and user friendly interface
*Product delivered on time
*Product I purchased was overpriced
*No email notification once order is placed. They just sent a text msg when the product was despatched.
*They have this credits scheme wherein if you invite your friends etc you get credits with which you can shop. But the credits cannot be applied or clubbed with any other on-going offers. It is like an affiliate commission with restricted use. It takes time to collect a decent credit points and when they restrict the use, it feels discouraging.
Indian Beauty Maniac’s Rating
I like the website and I would have given 5/5 rating if the hand bag i received was of better quality.
That said, it is a nice website. Some of the sling bags are too cute to ignore. I will be placing my next order very soon!
Hope you girls found my review useful!
*product sponsored by Limeroad by the opinions expressed are honest.
