My Envy Box - Valentine's Edition
As the days pass by, My Envy Box is getting better and better! As you may have read in my previous posts about the December and January boxes, these boxes come with samples of luxury beauty skincare and hair care products and fragrances. The past two boxes I got were white, but the February edition is a dark shade of peach. And as pointed by my fellow blogger Jo in the comments below, the color's a lot like a Hermès box! Well, I'm not complaining :)
The monogrammed paper which wrapped the goodies in the previous boxes has now been replaced by a colorful cloth pouch and like every time, the box came with a letter telling us about their offers, contests and announcements.
Along with these, came individual cards describing each product along with usage instructions. As a very thoughtful and sweet gesture, this month's box included a men's fragrance sample as gift to our Valentine and the box aptly reached me a day before Valentine's Day.
This box also came with a complimentary Givenchy Consultation card. Unfortunately for me, there is no Givenchy Counter in Pune so I can't really make use of it.
The products in this month's box were -
Givenchy Gentlemen Only
Givenchy Dahlia Noir L’eau
Thalgo Oxygen SOS Serum
René Furterer Carthame Moisturising Milk Shampoo
Eminence Organics Chocolate Mousse Hydration Masque
Forest Essentials Luscious Lip Balm in Sugared Rose
To start off with the two perfumes, I've saved Dahlia Noir for a night out as I usually like keeping all my sample sized perfumes in my party bags but my Valentine spritzed his sample of Gentlemen Only the moment he got it. It smells pretty good with woody and musky notes.
Moving on to skincare, there are two samples of Thalgo's Oxygen SOS serum, a concentrate that detoxifies and repairs skin to boost radiance. I've been using this product everyday and love its texture.
When it comes to hair care, the box came with René Furterer Carthame Moisturising Milk Shampoo, a moisturizing shampoo that hydrates the scalp and hair to live it smoother and silky. Am saving this one for a holiday, as usual.
One of the cutest samples I've ever seen is Eminence Organics Chocolate Mousse Hydration Masque, a delicious smelling moisturizing mask that's packed with antioxidant powers of cocoa and promises to provide a youthful radiance to your skin. Am saving this one for a special occasion when I want to pamper myself at home!
Last and definitely not the least was a FULL SIZED product for the first time - Forest Essentials Luscious Lip Balm in Sugared Rose. This one was a total blessing for me as I'm a huge lip balm freak! My lips are always dry because I smoke and the weather in Pune is really dry so I am constantly trying new brands and always have a bunch of different lip balms from all around the world stocked in my beauty cabinet. This product makes this box absolutely worth the price as the balm itself costs almost as much as the box does!
So, to put it in a nutshell, this month's Envy Box was absolutely amazing and as I've been told, the next few months will include makeup samples too so I'm really looking forward to them!
What did you think of My Envy Box? If you're based in India, you must try this out! Priced at a reasonable Rs 850 per month, not only does the box let you sample premium luxury products but you can also buy the full sized product at their store for a discount! Great deal, isn't it?
