My online shopping experience - Lootlo.pk


Hello everyone. Hope you all are doing great. Today when I was thinking what to write a post about, I realised that I havent shared any of my online shopping experiences here, although I very frequently shop online. So this is the first in a series of posts regarding my online shopping experiences - whether good or bad; I'll vent my heart out here haha. So starting with the latest, today we are gonna be checking out what offer I availed at Lootlo.pk


I guess around 2 months back, I saw an offer at their website (http://lootlo.pk/) of 2 bags of Clarée Products which contained 1 shampoo, 1 face wash, 1 hand cream and 1 foot cream in each bag; for the price tag of PKR 625. I instantly realised that it is such a bargain, although I had never heard about this brand before. A little search on the google and I found that it is an international franchise (http://www.clareecare.com/) and the products seemed quite promising so I thought I should give it a try! The procedure was simple; I placed the order online at Lootlo website, received a call from the representative assuring me that I will get my package in 2-3 working days and I would have to pay the cash amount at the time of delivery. But almost 3 weeks passed and no sign of delivery! I had almost forgot about this whole thing when one day I received a call from Lootlo.pk again and was informed that there was certain problem at their end that's why the delivery was delayed and now I'll get my stuff in a day or two. And indeed I did! Since it was a COD (Cash On Delivery) mechanism, therefore I suffered no heart attacks from the fear of losing my money, the package being lost etc etc hahaha

Ok so now lets have a look at the products.


Let me share my experiences with each of these products one by one.

1- Clarée Neem Face Wash:


the ingredients are all herbal


- packaging is secure (came with a seal) and sturdy. travel friendly. contains 100 ml of the product
- texture is runny. after washing the face, it leaves a slippery/slimy feeling (if you know what I mean :P ). doesn't make the skin dry afterwards. has a light fragrance which doesnt bother. pea sized amount is enough.
- now coming to the product claim, well, I started using it when there was a severe break out on my face in the hope that it may act to cure them to some extent, but, frankly speaking I didn't feel any such thing happening! It just cleanses my skin, keeps it shine free for like 2 - 2.5 hours at most, and no impact on pimples. also, when I'm in a rush in the morning, that slippery/slimy feeling of this face wash makes it quite a time taking task to wash my face with it (I hope you can understand that I like face washes that make face squeaky clean but dont strip it of its natural moisture...yeah yeah I'll review my regular face wash in the coming posts so you would know better :P )
- all in all, this is just an ok product in my opinion. I mean for the same amount and price, there are other products which work way better than this one! (yes I have tried a few :P )


2- Clarée Anti-Dandruff Shampoo:


btw, how does it leather?! o.O


- packaging is secure. flip cap which is quite tight. 200 ml of the product.
- consistency is rather thick. leathers well (but not those extreme bubbles :P ). very mild fragrance of ginger which fades once I'm done with shower.
- the product itself is quite decent. my hair feel quite clean and bouncy after shampooing and also, I have felt a considerable reduction in my dandruff (after repeated usage and following the same regime which I had been following earlier). Having said that, of course one can not expect wonders in a few washes from any shampoo as things take their due course of time, but I just have a feeling that the ginger thing which is a key ingredient of this shampoo, does play a good role.
- overall its a good product, I'll finish this bottle and see if I might want to buy another one. For this price and quantity, it performs the job real well.

3- Clarée Sweet Almond Moisturising Hand Cream:




- packaging is secure with flip cap, quite sturdy and travel friendly. contains 100 ml of the product.
- texture is quite thick. has a moderate sweet fragrance of almond+lavender (which I loooove :P ). and the moisturising power is quite good as well. I would say on my normal skin, 4 hours straight! and, the good part being, the fragrance stays as long does the product! (usually I have experienced that the fragrance fades quicker than the moisture of the hand cream...)
- I am definitely gonna re purchase this one, as for this price and quantity, it is better than many of the other hand creams I have tried!

4- Clarée Cocoa Butter Foot Cream:
all the text in Russian! :)


- packaging is secure with flip cap, quite sturdy and travel friendly. contains 100 ml of the product.
- texture is very thick, which makes its staying power approx 8 hours. yes 8 hours! in my opinion, its quite extraordinary, and whats more surprising is that it can even withstand a one-time contact with water (e.g. one ablution). I have tried it in day and night time both, and I am greatly impressed by its staying power on my normal/dry foot skin.
-now the fun part: the fragrance is a mixture of peppermint and something like cinnamon...quite intense! some people might find it overbearing but I have a welcoming nose for all such bitter-minty weird fragrances, so it doesnt bother me haha..  and just like the hand cream, the fragrance stays as long as the foot cream does!
- I do not need to tell that this is already in my favorites list...for this price and quantity, it is better than most of the foot creams I have tried, and its a sure re-purchase! :D

Now my favorite part: the package actually costs PKR 1250 but I got it at 50% discount, i.e. PKR 625. You know how much I enjoy budget shopping...but so does everyone, right?! :) Although this deal is expired at the website now, but you can always visit Lootlo.pk for other interesting deals. As for the availability of Clarée products, you can visit the Clarée website here and Pakistani readers can check the Herbion Naturals website here which offers delivery of Clarée products with COD. You can also check their face book page here
[I'm not sure at the moment if its available at the local shops in Karachi, I'll update this post if I get to know about it]

Thanks for reading peeps...do tell me if you have tried Clarée products. 
Have a happy week ahead! xoxo
