Disclaimer: I have been compensated with a Gift card for trying out Jabong but I am not obliged to give a favorable review. I have given my honest opinion like always.
A few days ago I was approached by a representative of Jabong.com to review the website or host a giveaway. I was planning to do the sponsored giveaway but since a huge chunk of my readers are abroad, I decided to do a Sponsored Review post (Plus I run my own giveaways and I do not want my readers to get confused while there is my own giveaway running on the blog.)
I do not shop online but a couple of my friends use Jabong.com regularly so I had no doubts that their operations are legit but I still browsed the website to see if I wanted to be associated with them. Once I was convinced they had good services, I agreed to do the review. I was given a gift voucher for 500 INR which I used to buy a couple of products from the website. Since I am not living in India, I got my order delivered to my home and then my family sent it to me here in Korea. So let’s me share my experience with you!
Jabong.com is one of the largest online shopping websites in India. They have a wide range of selection of apparel, accessories, beauty products and shoes. One of the most striking things is that they offer Cash on Delivery (COD) and Net Banking in addition to Visa, Master Card and Maestro card payment form. They also have a fair return policy. Jabong.com coupons are also available on the website itself for shopper’s convenience.
As a beauty blogger, I was interested in looking for the beauty brands only and to my delight, they feature Forest Essentials, Lotus Herbals, NYX, Maybelline, L’Oreal, MUA, The Body Shop, Lakme, Tresemme, Dermalogica, Schwarzkopf, Toni & Guy, Avalon Organics, The Nature’s Co., Biotique etc. I am glad that the brands (and/or stores) that are not easily accessible in all cities in India are also featured on the website. I always wanted to try Forest Essentials products so now I know where to get it from! Jabong.com also has a global portal. But I digress.
I browsed the website and had a great time looking at various products. In fact it was a little difficult to stay within my spending limit, haha! I decided to go for products that I cannot find easily in stores in Korea or India so I chose NYX Slide On Eye Pencil in Azure which I had been wanting to try for a long time but just could not get my hands on, and since I had some money left I also ordered the Lotus Herbals Tea Tree Wash (face wash) as I prefer Tea Tree based face washes in summer.
I was promised a 4-5 day delivery but we received the package on Day 3 itself. I was quite happy with how secure the packaging of the products was. Both products were neatly tucked in bubble wraps. I do not shop for makeup online because I am usually afraid of eyeshadows shattering in transit but with this kind of packaging, I think I can trust Jabong.com to deliver my products safely! I will review the products I bought sometime in the coming weeks.
As the Mother’s Day is coming close, Jabong.com has decided to make it easy for us to get some amazing gifts for our mothers. A lot of Mother’s Day Special events are taking place – there is even a specific page targeted to Mother’s Day specials. There are also brand-wide sales on L’Oreal Paris and Lara Karen products going on at the moment!
