Review on Singapore Online Shopping Portal - GoBuyLah.sg

Credit: Financial Express
I believe there is always a shopping king/queen in us no matter how old we are. Some of us splurge on make-up, clothings while others shop for other stuff such as electrical appliances, gadgets, healthcare, grocery..etc
With the advancement of technology, I am sure I am not the only person who like to shop online. I like the idea of shopping anywhere anytime without worrying about the retail operating hours. But there are too many choices online and I silently wished that there is an online portal that I can do my one stop shopping. Thus, I was quite happy when I get to try the service of this online shopping portal that literally sell everything.


The idea behind GoBuyLah is to provide a hasslefree shopping experience to the consumer by being a one stop solution portal. Be it B2C (business-to-consumer) or C2C (consumer-to-consumer) market, GoBuyLah works in collaboration with different companies to provide a platform where the sellers get to promote their products or services and the consumers get to shop at their comfort.
These are some of the brands that you can find on GoBuyLah. To be frank, I am quite impressed with the variety of products available. From big electricial applicance brands like Philips, Acer to snacks from Win Win food to cosmetics products from 3CE. You can even buy SongHe rice and Softlan! Yes. All these at your convenience online. 
There is also a hot deal section where you can save some money. Shopping is quite a breeze as the products have been categorized under different sections. If you are as impatient as me, there is always a search box to cut the hassle of browsing everything under each category.
I understand that some people has the worry of providing their credit card details online. If you are one of them, cheers cos GoBuyLah has the service of cash on delivery as well. :)

For GoBuyLah, if the order is made before 3pm, the products will be made within 5 working days. If it is after 3pm then it will be made within 6 working days. The delivery is available from Mondays to Fridays, 9am – 9pm; on Saturdays, from 9am to 6pm. There are also 3 time slots for you to choose from (9-1pm, 1-6pm, 6-9pm).
To be frank the hardest part of writing this review is not that the website is not good. I like the variety of items that are available and I could even do my grocery shopping without the need to carry those heavy stuff. However, it is the delivery service that has made my shopping experience exasperating. It took about 2 weeks for my order to be completed as some of the products were out of stock. On top of that, I have an heart attack from receiving a sms at 11.30am (my time slot is from 9am to 1pm) that delivery will be delayed till evening. At the end of the day, I did received my loots but that was after some vomit blood experience from the delivery service. The good news is I am one of the minority that suffered from such bad luck. There are many who have had better experiences such as Janel, Hazel and Susan Wong.
Nevertheless, my loots arrived in perfect condition. So tada~~ so there they are. My loots arrived individually nicely packed in bubble wraps.
Look at my brown rice crackers, they are still in beautiful pieces. Not one shattered.

I bought quite a fair bit of beauty products such as Environ Cosmetic Focus-Cit 0.2mm ($68),
Essence Hyper Eyelash Growth And Enhancer ($44.90), Imperial Leather Foamburst Japanese Spa -Jasmine and Green Tea 200g ($7.50), RESTRUCTURING Conditioner / Mask with Keratin 500ml by B.App ($16.50), Hanaka Chu Chu Lip Scrub ($15.90), 2 x Beely Aloe Seaweed Moisturizing Mask ($2.40), Korea OSHIAREE PST-CELL Anti-Wrinkle and Whitening Ampoule ($18.90) and Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blush ($7.90).

I am quite happy with the loots as some of the products are not even available at the drug store, especially the Cosmetic Focus-Cit. After having good experience using Envion C-Boost and Sun Rad SPF15 previously, I decided to buy Cosmetic Focus-Cit (under same brand) as it claims to help the skin absorb skincare products better! Review will be up soon. :)

So do check out this online portal and share with me about how you like the experience since there is no minimum purchase to the free delivery. ;)
