My envy box Review- October, 2016- Third Anniversary edition!!

I was desperately waiting for my October envy box as it was the anniversary edition and I was to receive extra 3 products. So, you can imagine my excitement when it finally showed up on my door steps. This month, My Envy Box turns three. Without further ado let’s take a look at the products that I received in my birthday month’s box.

October 2016 3rd Anniversary My Envy Box

This month’s box is plain white in color with the envy box logo in the center and turns three printed underneath. The reason why the box is plain is because there is a color me contest going on where in you have to do something fun and creative on the box in order to win loads of prizes.


Products received:-

1.      AYCA- Jasmine Body Wash:- (100ml for INR 438/-)

This is a mild, foaming gel cleanser for all skin types. It’s a natural product made from coconut derivatives. Coconut is said to be very nourishing for your skin and it also helps break down makeup. Therefore I am excited to try it out and see how it works out.


2.      Forest Essentials- Facial Cleansing Paste:- (15g for INR 925/-)

Forest essential is one of my favorite brands. This cleansing paste contains ingredients like Almonds, Pistachio, fresh Turmeric, Buttermilk, Floral waters, organic Honey and fresh Aloe leaf juice.


3.      Vert- Loose Powder:- (10g for INR 1250/-)

This is the only makeup product in the box. It is a handmade loose powder made out of natural ingredients like rose petals and French clay. This versatile powder can be used as eye shadow, highlighter or a blush.


4.      VICHY Ideal White Brightening Deep Cleansing Foam:- (15ml for INR 230/-)

VICHY is one of the most trusted and most widely used skin care brand. This cleansing foam leaves the skin feeling refreshed, flawless, luminous and radiant.



5.      Nertia- Nail Art :- (1 pack for INR 80/-)

These are basically nail stickers that are being marketed as dry nail polish that lasts up to 7 days.



As this was the third year anniversary box I also received 3 extra sample sized products which are as follows:

1.      BABOR – HSR lifting:-

This is an anti aging extra firming cream.


2.      Skin Yoga- Neem Purifier:-

This is a post workout anti bacterial body purifier.


3.      BIODERMA- Photoderm AKN Mat SPF 30:-

This is a sunscreen lotion sample for oily skin.



There was a lot of anticipation regarding this month’s box as we were told in the emails that October envy box will be full of surprises and we will receive 8 products in the box.

Also I am quite excited about the COLOUR ME CONTEST. We basically have to be creative and color the white box to stand a chance to win products worth Rs 3000/-.


Talking about the products I am extremely excited about trying the Forest Essentials Facial Cleansing Paste, Vert Loose Powder and VICHY Ideal White Brightening Deep Cleansing Foam. The AYCA Jasmine Body Wash smells amazing. I am a bit skeptical about Nertia nail art as the idea of a nail sticker lasting 7 days does not sound right to me.

About the extra 3 products BABOR HSR lifting cream is the most necessary thing for me as I just entered my late twenties a few days ago. Skin Yoga products have never disappointed me and I am sure this won’t disappoint me too. The Bioderma sunscreen was no surprise to me as I have literally received it in all my boxes.


To conclude the October My Envy Box is something you cannot afford to miss. It is just spectacular.

October is a month filled festivities and fun. It is all about lights, glamour, glitter and jazz. Keeping this in mind this month’s Fab Bag theme is THE FESTIVE HIGH. Lets go ahead and discuss the products in detail.

  • 3 month’s bag- INR 1797/-
  • 6 month’s bag- INR 3594/-
  • 12 month’s bag- INR 7188/-


October Fab BagThe Festive High:-

The Bag this month is a golden clutch. The clutch looks fine but the material of the bag is very poor.


Products I got:

  • CAL Finish Up Compact : INR 650
  • Votre Lip Gel Scrub (10g): INR 300
  • Kaya Brightening Serum (5ml): INR 1490 for 30ml
  • Vedaearth Cleansing Facial Oil: INR 350
  • Stay Quirky Nail Polish: INR 165 for 6ml


Total value of the bag- INR 1715

My views of this month’s products:-

The C.A.L compact and the Vedaearth cleansing oil are the most exciting products in this month’s bag. The Votre lip gel scrub smells weird and honestly I am quite scared to apply it on my lips. The bottle Kaya Brightening serum’s was broken when I opened the bag and the serum had spilled all inside the bag.


Overall I would give this month’s bag 3/5 stars.
