Who doesn’t love handmade or curated things? After being introduced to natural skincare, I know how much efforts go into handmade things. Recently I shopped from a website which sells curated products and I was quite familiar with most of the skincare products on their list. Today’s review is about Qtrove.com, a website which stocks up on curated items ranging from skincare to food, from jewellery to accessories, from home baked goodies to home decor. Qtrove means Curated Trove, which brings you curated products from handpicked vendors. I found the Name quite interesting and unusual.
At Qtrove, we believe that YOU are unique and so should be the products you buy.The experience of shopping and selling should be delightful and joyous and our aim is to release you from the “tyranny of choice”.
The website is pretty simple with a clean, neat and simple theme. The website loads very fast and layout is quite simple. The shopping cart is powered by Shopify and payment is powered by Razorpay. Although
the website doesn’t have filters for even a single section to sort the products based on price, name or popularity. I found this amusing as most shopping portals have it. You can read about their Shipping policy and Returns and Refunds
Apart from that my shopping experience was absolutely satisfactory. I received an email as well as a message on my mobile number at every point of order processing. I received an email after successful registration, order confirmation and order shipment. I placed my order on 29th August 2016 and received my order on 31st August 2016, afternoon (pretty fast, right!).
Staying true to my blog name, I shopped for some skincare items. I shopped for Rustic Art and Do Bandar, as these two brands had been on my wishlist for too long. So what all I shopped from Qtrove.com is
Rustic Art Aloevera gel
I always needed a good aloevera gel and waht better than an organic one from Rustic Art. It is free from chemicals and preservatives. Priced at 200 INR for 100g.
Do Bandar Patchouli soap
Patchouli is effective against acne and I have some acne on my back, hence I picked it up. Priced at 150 INR for 100g
Do Bandar Orange and gram flour soap
Orange-peel and chickpea is a centuries-old combination that is in fact great for smooth, supple and exfoliated skin. Priced at 150 INR for 100g
Do Bandar Vanilla and Cinnamon soap
The combination of vanilla and cinnamon is anti-inflammatory and just plain yummy and I have picked up two soaps of this variant. Priced at 150 INR for 100g.
I received the package without any tampering and damage. I received two packages although, based on the brands, one was from Do Bandar and another one from Rustic Art. The aloe vera gel was neatly packed in bubble wrap whereas the soap were safely packed in a cardboard box. Overall I had a great shopping experience without any hassles and complaints from Qtrove.com. Last but not the least they also have my favourite payment option that is COD as well as online payment.
