My Envy Box – May 2014

Hello all

How are you? Hope having a good weekend.  🙂
I received my first MyEnvyBox last week and thought of doing a post on what i got in there and how i liked the products. Since i was trying it for the first time, was a bit skeptical about the genuinity of the ‘luxury products’ claim. Now lets read about my views on it.

MyEnvyBox is an international luxury beauty box consisting of 5 luxe beauty product samples. You can subscribe to this box for a month , 3 months , 6 months or for an year.  I took the 3 months subscription already after reading good reviews. It is Priced at Rs. 850/month.

So this is the May edition and i must say all products are basic summer essentials and came wrapped in a soft aztec print cotton pouch. I loved the packaging of this box. Its a sturdy pink box with a flap opening. So no fuss in handling it and can be re-used later on to store stuff.

Coming to the list of products in the box.

1. InnisfreeGreen tea seed serum oil sample.

I have never used any of these products before so was not sure if this particular serum will do any good to my skin. Plus its a very small packaging so would not know how it works. I was able to use this sample for only about 4-5 times but i found it very light on my skin as it gets easily absorbed and did not produce any oil on my face. Priced at Rs.1450 for 80ml.

2. H2O+ SPA  Hand and Nail cream.

This product is my favourite of all in the box. First its a hand cream(obsessed with hand creams these days) and second it is of delux-size which can easily go for about a month. I am using it everyday and can say it nourishes well. My hands don’t sweat in sun after applying this and it has a very mild fragrance unlike Crabtree n Evelyn, which i currently own. So. if you are looking for fragrance in your hand cream then this one might disappoint you. But i loved it for the fact that it nourishes my hands well. Priced at Rs.1100 for 80ml

3. Eminence organicsTropical vanilla Day cream SPF 32 sunscreen.

Now this one is a daily face cream sample. It is a good moisturizer and also contains SPF which is an added bonus. Generally my skin gets dry after bath especially in summers. But i found this one good for my skin because even a small quantity is enough and goes a long way. It does not sweat and has a very pleasant fragrance though i did not find the size of sample very amusing.  Priced at Rs. 4393 for 60ml.

4. Roberto Cavalli‘Exotica’ EDT

This one is latest from Roberto Cavalli, launched in March 2014. Its a Day-time fragrance with floral and fruity notes. I really liked it because of its fragrance and it stays on for long too. A definite yes to this if you are planning to splurge on a new fragrance and confused which one to buy.  Priced at Rs. 5200 for 75ml.

5. ZaTrue White cleansing foam.

After trying this face wash, i felt it would be suitable for very oily skin types as it dries out my medium oily skin a little but does brightens up my complexion instantly. Personally i am not quite impressed with this sample as compared to others.  Priced at Rs.349 for 100 gms.

So that’s all for the products and reviews. Overall, i liked this beauty box and already waiting for the next one, wishing for the samples to be of bit more generous size. 🙂

Hope you liked it and if you want to get one for yourself, request for an Invite Here as subscription is on invite basis only as of now.

Love
Raman
