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.

About My Envy Box (Beauty Box Subscription):-

It is a monthly subscription service in which you receive 4 or more luxury full size and sample size beauty and makeup products. My envy box is available at different prices.

  • 1 month box- INR 850
  • 3 months box- INR 2250
  • 6 months box- INR 4350

You can order your own envy box from- http://www.myenvybox.com/

 

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.

GIFT PRODUCTS IN THIS MONTH’S BOX:-

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:-

3.      BIODERMA- Photoderm AKN Mat SPF 30:-

This is a sunscreen lotion sample for oily skin.

MY VIEWS OF THIS MONTH’S BOX:-

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/-.

IMG_1787.JPG

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.

My views on this month’s box:-
I was very excited for this month’s box as they were mixing up things this month. They included a piece of jewellery and I quite like the coin necklace in my box. I have been having a lot of hair fall issues this monsoon and was excited to recieve the Rustic Art Aloe Shampoo. The Oriflame Illuskin Blush is very pigmented and looks amazing.
The Fuschia Anti aging night cream smells awful though and I’m scared to get it anywhere near my face. I have used Fuschia products earlier and have really liked them. The Biobloom orange lip balm also doesn’t excite me. It feels like a petroleum jelly that only stays on your lips for few minutes.

Overall I’m very satisfied with my GloBox subscription service and will definitely renew my subscription.

My views on this month’s box:-
I have to say I’m impressed by how closely the beauty expert reads the beauty profile. All the products that I received are in accordance to my skin type and needs. The box continues to send only full size products which is a thumbs up.
GloBox also introduced me to some new brands like Aryanveda and Bio Bloom that I had never heard of or tried. I have been loving Aryanveda products ever since I tried them. They smell amazing and are extremely good on my skin.
I loved my July,2016 GloBox and now I can hardly wait for the August one!!

Glowbox June,2016 review!

Hi everyone,
Have to redo the blog again as the earlier draft got deleted 😞. So here we go…
Glo box is a recently launched subscription box in India. I love subscription boxes so I was happy to redeem the launch offer and get a discount on my subscription box.
I received my box in second week if June (within one week of placing order).
They give all full size products that are herbal. A hand written note from CEO and style expert probably because it was the launch month.
The price range is in the range of other subscription boxes available in India.

My views on the subscription box:-
I am really impressed by GloBox. The fact that they only provide Full Size products in the box is a great feature. Other subscription boxes contain 2 full size and 2 sample size products and I find that irritating as the sample size products don’t even last for a week.
They ask you to fill a beauty profile form at the beginning of the subscription and the beauty expert chooses products for you according to the beauty profile. Other subscription boxes just tend to ignore your beauty profile.
The hand written note from the beauty expert specifies why they chose a particular product for you and it also contains instructions on how to use it.
You can jump on and grab interesting introductory discounts right now.

I can’t wait to unbox the July box. I truly believe this is an amazing gift to myself which I will get to unwrap every month.
