Malaysian fashion retailer, catering to muslimah fashion. It also has childrens clothes.
Its very easy to use their website or app.

The postage is international shipping and fast within 10 days.

I have shopped at Poplook at least 4 times.
5 stars.

HIJUP is a fashion website catering for Modest clothes and headscarfs. It also caters for kids and mens apparel, prayer mats etc.

The site is in Indonesia, the clothes are made in Indonesia, but many of the clothes are available to 3xl.

HIJUP offers international shipping, the shipping is fast, at the most 10 days.

I have ordered from this site over 5 times.
The quality of the clothes is good, it's not a "fast fashion",

One should know, these clothes in Indonesia are made to last a long time because many people hand wash by scrubbing he clothes with a stiff brush, so the cloth and construction of a garment has to be able to endure that regular treatment.

There is a shopping app, which is also good, however if you can't use the app the website is the same thing.

Customer service is excellent, via WhatsApp, a same day reply.

5 stars for HIJUP.

Tip for consumers:
Use the search filters to quickly find the Colours, Price, Brands you like. Unfortunately at the time of this review there was no Size filter.

Sly Guild is a New Zealand streetwear fashion brand Made in New Zealand. At the moment SlyGuild is selling Menswear.

The website is easy to use, I ordered 3 items here. The clothes are really well made and have quality feel to them.

I ordered via the website which was easy to do, was immediately sent an email invoice however unfortunately the link on the email which I suppose was supposed to show a parcel tracking or a tracking number, that link didn't work.

I also tried to contact the store via messenger about the broken link, but found no replies.

Anyhow despite that hiccup, within a week the items arrived, items are as described.

So I have put minus 1 star because of broken email link, and no replies to message.
4 stars.

Tip for consumers:
It may be difficult to contact the managers of this shop if you need to ask a question.


I really like their cute and fun underwear sets! ( Usually the cute bra and briefs sets I googled are all kawaii and cute but... heartbreakingly *way* too small for me.).

Never mind, because Rose and Thorne has these way cute fashion lingerie sets with just enough lace and lovely for my cuteness and fun addiction.

R&T has it's company's historical links with the well known lingerie giant Bendon, so because of that I was confident that the style and fit would be trustworthy to the NZ/australian sizes I know. And it is!

Now, you *can* buy R&T lingerie at the NZ department store but this website is so easy to choose if you already know your size, or use the accurate size charts.

Best feature: very easy to see sizes availability and with one click buy the matching briefs. That is the best feature ever.
Annoying: a little hard to view the website text on a smaller device (tablet etc), because of this, it makes filling in the address forms tricky as the need arises to zoom in on the page all the time.
Product: well. It fit's me like a glove, but again, refer religiously to the sizing guide! Designs are cute and fun fashion bra sets, product is really well made and comfy considering the reasonably affordable price.

If you are a fan of fashion bra sets (colours, fun prints, lace, matching) and don't have a fortune to spend, it wouldn't hurt to check out this website.

They courier it to your door,
And I got a discount code for signing up.


I am a regular customer at Henna Hut,
Purchasing the "Harvest Moon Hair & Beard Dye" - Deep Red.

Since making a commitment to henna a few years ago I have shopped around for henna, trying south asian store henna.
I tried Harvest Moon henna and have found these points I like about it:

*it takes to the hair quickly.
*the colour is relatively strong compared to the south-asian store bought henna
*although the redder herbal pigments in this are first to fade (on me after about two weeks), the natural henna colour is becoming richer as many coats are applied over time.
It is noticable enough that you will likely get comments about the colour depth.
I really love the condition that this product leaves my hair in. Thats why I keep coming back.

Shipping is just under 3 weeks from USA to NZ.

The only drawback for me (personally) is shipping cost from USA to NZ as I find it is very expensive, but if you live in the USA then I highly recommend you check out Henna Hut first if you are thinking about committing to Henna your hair.


I'm not from South Africa but often like lollies from South Africa, and this store stocks a nice range, with fast shipping at a fair price.

If you live in NZ and like to buy SouthAfrican goodies, do check them out.


12 days turn around from UK to NZ,
I ordered a sale item,

Vendor stayed online even though it was the middle of the night in her side of the world, just to answer my questions.
I'm so sure I grabbed a bargain, my abaya is in fact so much better than in the picture!

This vendor has her own youtube channel so you can see for yourself how the abayat and other products can be styled.


I have ordered from here twice,
Lovely range of halal cosmetics, and blackseed oil products.
Excellent and friendly communication if you need to ask about anything.
Fast turnaround from Australia to NZ.


I like the range available on amazon,
Most of my purchases have been books.
I have been happy with the turnaround.


If for example you are on pinterest and really getting into all the diy recipes and ideas,
This online shop has all the ingredients and tools one might need to tinker and pot about creating with wonderful smells etc.

Fast shipping, and really well packaged.
I hope to buy here again.


I have ordered here once.
The shipping was 19 days
I ordered a kids cotton jacket, it was reasonable quality, but I'm sure a little overpriced; I mean it's just OK quality.
I guess what is paid for is the uniqueness of the style, which was pretty unique.
I would have liked to have some kind of email confirmation and shipping status update, but I got no communication after the purchase.

I have since been advised and apologised to, that indeed, i should have recieved confirmation email.


I have ordered from this Malaysian site one time,

The items advertised on this site are of nice quality and very original design.

My order took 22 days shipping,

Now about this shipping, i WAS immediately given a invoice, and a shipping number, but the shipping number was not live (available to be found on tracking) for two weeks until I emailed again to ask why the shipping number was not live yet.

So during the following week I was sent via email a new shipping number, which then in the same day it sent me an automated message saying that it had already been delivered.

Then they sent me a message saying "Yes we picked up the package from post as it was held up and changed it to express 3 days"

Alhamdulillah I got it in three days, and I am very happy with the fabric and style, it is exactly what I ordered. It's a little large for my face, as I'm not Malaysian, but nothing a clip can't fix.

Overall I think the outward shipping department is a part of the company that needs improving, it seems as if who ever is in that department needs to get a lot more organised, but apart from that, the product is really a lovely five star product.


I purchased from here some really nice underwear that actually fits me,
What's more, at a reasonable price.
Ten days shipping. Happy customer.


Its a perfume store selling similar smelling quality perfumes and attar style massage or roll on oils inspired by the top designer brands.

I have ordered from here twice,
And i would happily order from here again.
It's easy to use the site to search for the scent you would usually like to wear, and with a good range of sizes which are available for purchase.

Shipping was eight days.

I have also emailed the company with a question about particular scents and happy to report that the company was quick to reply.


First off this china based site has low trust rating on scam adviser, and scamvoid, 50% on webutation.

Unfortunately... i ordered something from this site when i read a good review on a seperate site before i saw all the bad news.

Anyways i still don't know what cbamd stands for, i thought it might mean "lazy doctor" in cryptic language.

The site looks simple and loads of photos of "top quality luxury brands being modelled on catwalks" but any brand that you choose will take you to the same house brand product, so if you choose gucci, it will have some cat walk gucci shots, a small article about history of gucci, links to gucci sites and then just their own brand of stuff for sale. Thats a bit weird, im not sure wether they are going for a "get the look" angle or just plain loophole abuse.

Anyways i just wanted an unbranded bag, which i got, posted to me in ten days.

The bag looks like the picture, measurements and fabric are correct as given, but i think for the quality is very basic for the expensive price of the bag, im sure it is only worth 20% what i paid, it lasted not a whole month until the zip came apart. So disappointing.

Anyways at least the shipping time was actually quite good,
But when i ordered, no invoice was given and i had to annoy the sales person into giving me a shipping code which didn't actually work on the system until a whole day after my parcel was delivered.

So um. Yeah thats all there is to say about that.


Heres another etsy type alternative,

The stores range from artisan / custom made type sellers,
- to procurer from china source / middle-man type set up,

But the main theme of the products on sale is alternative theme/youth culture etc.


I like how they are always updating their videos,
And it's easy to find what you're looking for.
This site is an oasis.


An Alladins cave of headscarves/hijab/jilbab/tudung all size and colours... for some reason i'm always a bit apprehensive ordering from Indonesia sites.

This website has a huge amount of styles to choose from, not only hijab khimar, but also muslimah clothes (Asian sizes) thankfully the website has been updated with less clutter and filters to make it much easier to hone in.

In one of my orders i had an immediate reply and refund about an item that was out of stock, so five stars for that prompt and no fuss service.

The posting took 18 days to get to NZ from Indonesia.
The package was well wrapped to protect from water or bump damage.

I have ordered from this site 5 times.


I've only shopped here once, five items.

First of all please be aware this is site from a high risk country; so keep that in mind.

The quality of the clothes is just fine and acceptable for you would expect for generic brand Chinese fare, but the nice thing about this website is they don't charge the high price for their product, as if it were designer quality. (as so many sites do)

The jacket got was amazing quality, like Real Korean Winter quality. I thought I got a bargain.

I really think the price is fair, and the best thing is:
JAPANESE and KOREAN *style* of clothes,
But with Plus Size available, (thats average size for the west)

Therefore my favourite feature of this site is the "shop by size" option.

Ordering was simple on paypal,

And "Angela" emailed me immediately when a product was unavailable,
Offering the choice of something else of equal value or a refund,
So I chose something else and that matter was sorted and shipped
To me in 11 days.

I would like to shop here again!


The website itself is very polished style and well presented, boasting that it is "awarded the best e-shopping experience..." by whom?
